Question about Sony Ericsson Z550i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Z550i switching off with battery in

My Z550i has just started to switch off immediately it is turned on. It will work happily with the charger plugged in, so I thought it might be the battery and tried another - same problem. I also found that it stays on without the SIM installed, albeit the only thing it will let me do is an emergency call.

I've also tried using another SIM from the same service provider. THis has happened only just recently. It has worked a couple of times for a few hours or days after repeatedly switching it on (of course I don't have to switch it off :-( ), but will eventually start to display the same symptoms and seems to be getting progressively worse.

I'm in Australia

Any ideas?

I am using sony ericsson z550i it is not getting charge can u plzzz give me a solution

first of all try cleaning the pins of your charger and mobile charging socket with petrol or kerosine oil.
then see if it works,
if still the problem persist, then their may be the fault in your charger or mobile charging socket. Or electric socket where you put your charger for charging!
try charging your mobile by putting your charger in different switch board, if still it wont work, then try charging your mobile with different charger, if your mobile is getting charge, then get sure that problem is in your charger,
its time to buy a new charger.
original charges cost=900
duplicate charges cost=100

Battery was dead and phone got switched off i charged it ,still i cannot switch it on

hi there!

if the battery was just drained, plug the phone with its original charger (to make sure that the charger is in good working condition too) directly on the wall (dont use power extensions for now) and dont turn it on yet. wait for 2-5 mins, see if the phone responds (lights on, or the battery bar on the right or top part is moving). make sure that the charger is plugged in all the way too. if your battery is more than a year old, and has been draining fast when you use it, its possible that you have to change batteries already.

just make sure that the charger you're using is working fine with phones too.

Switchs off automatically.

First thing need to do is to check your battery. Plug in your charger and turn On your phone to observe your battery. A wear down battery will keep the phone turned on for a while then immediately off.

My Nokia 3110 wont come on when I switch it on

Your battery might have drained. Try plugging it to a wall socket with a charger and turn it on after 5 minutes whilst the charger is still plugged in. If it still wont work, try replacing the battery pack.

NOKIA 5310 can't turn on

Did you replace battery recently? Sounds like it has bad or wrong battery. If not, it is just dead.

To fix:
Power up phone on charger
While it is ON, pull the battery
Leave out for 1/2 to 3hr - phone still plugged in
Replace Battery, phone will power cycle and start charging
Leave plugged into charger 10-14hrs
Should be good now
