Question about Sony Ericsson S500i Phone

Trying to get the shell back on..

Hi guys,
I accidentally dropped my phone over the weekend and the top part of the shell came off (not the battery part).

Nothing has broken however I've tried to click it back into place but it seems it won't lock in. Any suggetions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks heaps :)

My dell axim x50v will not turn on


To everyone that's having problems with not booting up or the back plate battery cover warning messages on your Dell PDA, I think I've found the answer, I have 2 Dell's PDA's, 1 a X51v & the other a X50v, I was having problems with both of them (1 had battery cover warning messages & the other had a screen freezing) so I stripped the 2 of them down when I had both rear shells together I noticed that the small piece of sponge that Dell fit to the latching mechanism one was on the far right of the latching plate on one & the other was in the middle of the plate, I looked to see which shell belong to which PDA & the one I was having problem with battery cover warning messages the sponge far right, so I swapped the back shells around & booted it up BINGO!!!!! problem solved, I'm fairly sure the SPONGE SHOULD BE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LATCH PLATE, if I'm right Dell engineers & executives should be shoot, such a simple fix why didn't they let owners know about this. This has got to be easier than trying to bridge the switch contacts or rip the switch off the board, give it a go guys, Please let me know if it works on your PDA. I will upload some photo should any of you guys need.

Dell PDA Battery Cover Warning Messages & Won't Power on


This is my 1st posting on this forum although I've done a lot of reading regarding the battery cover I think this is the correct solution.

Why do I get a battery latch open warning Axim x51v


There is a sensor on the latch that detects when it has opened. Over time, the sensor wears down. You can put a dab of glue on it (so that the button presses down even further) or fold a tiny piece of paper onto it. You can find the sensor right above where the latch is, after you've opened the back cover.

Battery latch


paper wedged in the sensor sometimes work. More extreme is 'surgically' removing the switch and connecting it up.... see aximsite.com for a guide.... otherwise take it to a technician.

Dell Axim will not power on


From what I have been told is to never download any emails onto the PDA. By doing this it always totally rinses out your battery. If you are doing this then you should get rid of that feature, otherwise contact Dell for a replacement if its possible.

N81 won't charge!


Hi gingermark,

I had exactly the same problem with you. What I did to my phone was, I took the battery off the phone for a minute. Then put your battery back and quickly plug your charger jack into your N81. if your phone start to charge then that's mean it starts to feeding the battery up.

But, after that my phone always find itself under charging condition even with the charger jack unplugged. What a frustrating thing, I am trying to flash it to newer version firmware. Will see what is gonna happen. Will get back to you when I get the answer.

I personally think if the charging component inside the fone has got dirt on it. "maybe" it made short-circuit or some sort of thing.

Will try to open up the fone and do some cleaning if upgrading firmware doesnt give any clues.

Cheers mate :)

You may have to do a hard reset. You hold one finger at the power and the other hand hold your stylus and his reset. This technique is applied to most PDA.
