Sony Ericsson W550i

Hey bud, thanks for the help on the Toshiba 207 copier. I just want to find something out about the Sony Ericsson W550i. I got this phone a couple of months ago and all of a sudden the screen went white and nothing worked to get the screen up again. I had to take it 2 a celphone repair shop and got charged a hell of a lot to get it fixed. Not even a month after that, same thing. Took it in and got it fixed again. I've done a search on the net regarding this problem and saw that it happened to others as well. How do the techies repair the phone everytime - 'cause the phone's starting to do it again and don't want to spend so much money on it everytime. I just thought you might know how 2 fix it or what I can do. I know they reload the software but how do they do it without the screen? I've even tried to connect it 2 my pc to try and update software like that but no joy. Any ideas? Thanks man. Steph

    Nope. Bought a new battery as well because I thought that might've been the problem but still happens. Maybe you can tell me how to flash the phone. Don't know exactly what the techies at the celphone shop do to make it work but I understand that they format the phone and reload the software. How does that work? I've been to Sony's site where they give a download you can do on your phone when it happens but no luck - still same problem. Any ideas? Being in South Africa ... nothing seems to work here. ;-)

Contact your cell phone provider and see if they can reset your cell phone. I've had this happen on my Nokia before and that usually takes care of the problem.

When you insert your usb cable to your phone, is it give you phone and file transfer mode. If yes then reinstall pc suite. If no then your usb cable is defective or usb port to computer is properly connected.

Please if you have more any question then reply to this solution if your problem is solved then mark as answer.

1. Connect your W550i phone to your PC using the USB cable.
2. Use it in File transfer mode.
3. Go to it's Others folder on the Memory Stick that just appeared over at the My computer screen. (probably called PHONE_CARD or something similar).
4. Copy the .jar files from your PC to the Others folder on the phone's stick.

5. Disconnect your phone properly (safely remove hardware) and allow it to restart or return to Phone Mode.

6. They should appear in your games folder. Otherwise go to your files on your phone (File Manager) and go to Others. and open the files.

Please let me know if this had helped you out. Please rate.

Blank white screen


Hey guys - sony ericsson get the white screen of death on a regular basis - it's a flaw in their programming -sim card changes, unpluging the usb too fast, or even standard charging can cause it.

We can reflash your phone to the latest firmware and it should solve the problem - cost is anbout $35+ shipping

Phone lock


You should have a PUK number, on the plastic card where your sim card was. Enter 2-3 more pin numbers and your phone will lock itself and request the PUK number... tap it in and hey! presto.
PUK number is available from your service provider.
