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

A red light indicates not enough power for turn on, the battery is either completely depleted or dead. If the light does not change to amber after a few minutes of charge, the battery needs to be replaced with a new one.

My blackberry 8120 cannot switch on at all. but it shows that it is charging by showing the red light when being connected to a charger


Your battery might have died. Another problem is some circuit or the power button isn't in place or broken. I suggest you open up you phone- but ground yourself first (get rid of static)- and check the circuits and the power button, if something isn't right, don't touch it. Take it to a phone dealer especially if you have a warranty. If not, pay for repairs. Much more economically smarter too than buying a new phone. Any other questions? computerfreak1995@hotmail.com

I turned my G1 phone off and back on and now all I get is a screen with a triangle and a exclamation mark on the screen, the phone wont even turn off unless I take out the batery.


If the G1 is stuck on an error or startup screen you can go to this link save it to your desktop and then unzip it, copy it to a memory card insert the card into the phone and then follow these instructions. http://android-roms.googlecode.com/f...3_Recovery.zip 1. The device must be powered OFF to perform this reset. If the device is on, turn it off. ? Note: If the device is not responsive and does not turn off, remove the battery and re-insert it. 2. Press and hold the Home button and the Power button (the red hang-up button) at the same time. 3. Keep holding Home and Power together for at least 25 seconds, even if the "Startup" screen appears. 4. Release the keys when you see a black screen with a warning sign. 5. Slide the keyboard open. 6. As a shortcut, press ALT+W to factory reset the device. If this does not work, continue with the below steps. 7. Press ALT+L. 8. Press Alt+S to apply the recovery. ?this is what you put on the memory card? 9. Press the Home + Back key.

Same Problem


Your best bet is getting a new battery! I had this issue at about the 2 year mark and it started out of the blue. The battery would show fully charged and then all of a sudden while I am talking I start hearing some static and then the person on the other end could no longer hear me and the phone would go dead. I would have to take the battery out and put it back in for it to even power back on. When it did power back on (if it would even do so) the battery charge indicator would show red indicating no battery life left. To be certain this is the issue I would suggest keeping your phone plugged in to the wall/car charger while you are using it and see if the static auto turnoff issue happens while it is connected to a power source. It should not disconnect on you while connected.

I also noticed that the battery appeared to be a little "puffy" like one of the cells within the battery itself may have imploded and shorted out if that makes sense. Good Luck.

My phone has started shutting down, first static then shuts off.


well that is awful hopefully this method helps


You need to reflash the OS on the phone you should take the battery out first then connect it via the usb cable to the laptop/pc you are using then open the blackberry desktop manager,click on the apploader, then install the OS.

pls not that when u click on the apploader the pin should be PIN:UNKNOWN you make need to do this like 4x before the pc sees the pin:unknown but it will work once it see the pin:unknown you can re-insert the battery and continue with reflashing the phone

Charging indicator stays red


Hmmm...is the USB cable plugged in to a powered PC? Could be cable or battery issue. Red light means that the battery is very low on juice. Return it to where you got it from if you can't solve it on your own.
you want a repair service
