Dear alexlewis, the problem is caused by either software or hardware. The proposed solutions for both are the following.

Software: The phone needs to be flashed with the firmware of the same or newer revision with the appropriate FS and language packs. This is complicated for an average user. If in warranty it can be done for free at any SE repair service center. Remember if you are in the EU the warranty is 24 months by law.

Hardware: The phones Motherboard is defective and a replacement motherboard is needed. This repair can be done only in a SE repair service center. Another possibility (minimal) is the flex LCD cable (If you know how to repair phones the LCD Flex cable costs 5 Euro delivered from Hong Kong or China at Ebay)

TIP: I have seen this happening in many phones and most of them were hardware faults. (70%)

Regards

"insert smart chip" eror message - smart chip is in but nothing

Hi there!

The first thing to try is cleaning the contacts for the smart chip, on the phone and the chip itself. Use a little rubbing alcohol on cotton buds and be careful you don't bend the contacts in the phone. If that doesn't remedy the problem, get your service provider to give you a new chip. They should be willing to give you one for free. If that doesn't fix it, then it is probably a phone problem. You may go to your service provider or any nearest mobile phone repair shop to have it fixed. You may also have the phone replaced if your budget allows it.

Happy holidays!

Hi,

Try taking out the battery overnight and replace and try to turn on. If this doesn't help, then try updating your phone's firmware.

The flex cable is damaged, it needs to be replaced. It is what connects the motherboard to the lcd screen in your phone. I had to replace one not to long ago and it had the same problem and now it works. Hope this helps. Good Luck!!!!!
