Question about Sony Ericsson S710a

2 Answers

S710a problems I cannot turn on the phone. I charged it all day, then hit the power button and all I get is a black screen that says Sony Ericsson. Sometimes, when I turn it on I get an all white screen and that is it. If I take out the sim card it usually boots up to the main screen just fine, but says insert sim. When I put the sim card back in I have the same problem. My phone was not water damaged or dropped. I just woke up one morning and had these problems. Thanks for any help.

    Same problem for me, just one day kept freezing, I'd reset it, work, freez after some time. now it just freezes. i bought a new battery, didn't seem to help. Same deal, remove the sim and goes right to the screen very fast, then put it back in and slow, and freezing.

    I emailed SE, they said to master reset.. which obviously they didnt listen as I can't get it on all the way to do so, then they offered to look at it for $185... I passed.

I am having the same problem - it won't hold a charge. Red light shows it is charging, but nothing. It may be the battery. I just called S.E. and they said it may be the battery. I ended up getting a new phone since batteries cost almost as much as a new phone.

Sony ericsson w350a when turned on black screen appears then hot

Although my battery still had a charge, I plugged my phone into the wall charger while it was in the off position. The splash screen came up and the phone came to life again! I let it fully charge and it is still working the next day. I am going to have it professionally checked out ASAP.

Hi there,

Have you charged the battery up for a long time ? sometimes if the battery is low on power it will power up the device and then close it off due to the low power.

If that is not the case then it seems that there could me a Software or hardware problem ! the only way of solving these problems would be to goto the sony ericsson Support website at and from there search for your phone, if that fails, try calling your Mobile Carrier or Sony ericsson Direct !

Hope this Helps !?

Sony Ericsson W850i won't turn on, it is fully charged

If your phone freezes, hangs up unexpectedly, vibrates continuously or in other similar ways doesn't perform as it should, this can often be solved by performing a software update. Software may perform incorrectly for many reasons without there being a fault in the phone. Some problems may be fixed by re-updating your current software, while others may require installing a new software version. Try the Update Service button on this page..
All the best

Happy to help
Have a nice day!
