Question about Sony Ericsson S500i Phone

1 Answer

Static red light

My phone is just 7 months old. Now when I slide the phone shut there is a continuous red light that doesn't go out even when the phone is turned off. It seems to drain the battery as well.

Any help appreciated

N95 slider problem . LCD goes blank on sliding . it appears that there is problem in Strip. do u get separate strip or it comes alongwith slider....

No the Slider strip doesn't come separately because the strip is merged permanently to a circuit that has your earpiece ,light sensor,and front camera you cannot seperate it in any manner because the only unlockable part over there is the LCD screen .i would recommend you to get your phone serviced from nokia care only because the strip is the most important part in a slider .. even if you get a local strip installed from a local mobile repair center it wont last for a month ..even i had the same problem 4 months back ..because quality of the strip matters .......

System shuts off and turns to red light standby

Hello. You may want to double check your connections and cables. The only time I've ever heard a clicking before a system shut it's self down was when a kid had stuck the battery cover from a TV remote into the disc drive.
Also, if the PS3 keeps acting like that, Sony will repair/replace the unit for free including shipping since it's under a year old. Thanks and good luck!

42 in LG red dot like static on my screen still able to watch

Hi there. I don't know if you've already solved this issue, but If it's only 3 months old, contact LG Technical for Service/Repair as it will still be under warranty. It sounds like a hardware fault and would be better for you to get it done for free rather than have someone mess around with it.

Hope you have sorted it

Well, in most Cisco VoIP phones those lights are used to tell you if you have a voicemail. Have you checked your vm and cleared any new ones? This might be your issue ;)

Insignia NS-32LCD will not turn on.

WIth the set only 7 months old, it should still be under warranty. The problem now is that by opening it up, you effectively have voided the warranty. That being said, the problem is that a problem has been detected internally and the set shuts down to prevent further damage. The first suspect is the main power supply board. I would try for warranty service first. If that is not available a local service shop should be able to take some measurements inside to detemine whether the power supply is not working correctly or if the suply is being told to shutdown. WIth what little info is available here and not being able to examine the actual unit, remote diagnosis will be difficult.

Keep us posted.

Won't turn on.. Operation indicator is red, Lamp indicator is flashing red??

According to the E44W48LCD service manual, the temperature indicator red light states the projection TV shut down due to overheating. Red (flashing) states the projection TV shut down, check the cooling fan.
