I've had my W705a for about a year and a half now, and the other day I went to ring someone and couldn't hear a thing. So I put the loud speaker on and then I could hear them. So now, every time I make or receive a call, I have to use the loud speaker because nothing comes out of the normal ear speaker, it's dead. Has anyone else had this problem? I think my phone is out of warranty anyway, so I might just put up with it for another 6 months and get a new phone.
I have been using this phone on the WiFi now for over 6 months - just now unable to connect to the WiFi have fiddled a bit and probably changed the settings now not at all sure what settings it should be on. Can anyone advise the correct settings etc.
The camera froze today, and stupidly I pressed all the buttons randomly to see if it would unfreeze. I took the battery out and then recharged it.I got the message that it was fully recharged, unplugged the charger, got the Sony logo and then a "Goodbye" message.
so what happened was, I got my phone in the mail, I use it for a few hours with occasional texting and my friend calls me, and when I answer, the phone dies. I turn the phone on again to see the battery is dead and it dies again, and before it had 85% battery life left apparently. Now the phone is completely dead, when the charger is plugged in, the red light is on and solid (not flashing or anything), when it is plugged in the computer it is on and solid again, except the computer doesn't see its plugged in.
I know many people have written about this but I have a dead SE K800i. I have tried updating via SEUS and it says it is updating but phone still does not turn on. I have also tried updating with wotan client but get only so far and then nothing.
There were some posts saying that you can get your GPS to work correctly if you "purge GPS data". I did the purge, powered down the phone 5 minutes and restarted. No result. I saw some others that say you have to reinstall the firmware. I think that if a Phone is sold claiming there is a GPS inside, it should work! To my understanding, what is needed is a complete instruction on how to make the GPS work. Furthermore it would be interesting to have a clear description on how to set parameters, what they mean, how to display satellites, etc.
I buy SE W910 about a year ago. Never get problems with it before. And about 4 days ago, I just get dead button on C (for erase character) and the next day it just get worse. Another dead buttons on left button (option), Green button (call) and Red button (ended call). Not sure why it happen.
I found in the internet forum for the same problem but not solved. Also I have friend with same phone type and problem, bring to Sony Ericsson service and they have fix it. But the problem just back in next few days. They said the problem is on the flexible. I can't make a call with it.
Its been a while and my phone died literally after it got into water! I managed to revive it but the joystick died because it was covered with water reactions around its hardware area! I wanted to throw it away but i discovered i could navigate using numbers when am using ucweb application and some! The issue is on trying to change themes,settings in internet! I was wondering if there is a short cut to internet settings and others or even a patch to navigate using volume and camera top buttons! So far i have only seen a patch to adjust brightness using volume up and down...any luck or should i just throw it away!
I have a C902 that has just started to refuse to power up. It hasn't been modified or reflashed since new. I've removed the battery, SIM and memory card and then reinstalled the battery. On pressing power on, the phone vibrates briefly and then the blue shutter button on the side lights up. That is all it will do. It did complain of a memory issue just before. I have downloaded the Sony Update Service program and it says than an update is available. However, I really need to save the internal phone memory contents (i.e. phone contacts and text messages) as this process will wipe it clean. Sony's PC Suite won't connect to the phone as it refuses to power up. I'm hoping that someone knows of a utility that will connect to the phone like the Update Service program that will allow me to read the contacts and text messages directly from the phone memory. Is this possible? Is there another way, i.e. direct memory access. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
When calling some one, there is an option on the right buttom corner of the screen as: "SPEAKER ON" nad you can switch to the speaker at any time while calling or talking with one button only. Few days ago it has been changed in my screen and it shows "Sound" instead. I should press that and then choose the speaker on. It makes it difficult if you're driving or don't have good visibility. Does any one know if I can switch to the original option: choosing the "speaker on" with one button push?
Has anyone have encountered a problem with the Elm's ear speaker not working? I can only hear if I use the speaker function. And if I use the headset I can also hear it. Its only the ear speaker that is not working. Is this a hardware issue already? Just have my phone for 2 months.
I am getting no sound from the speaker on my k800i. I can not hear ringtones, or music. The sound does work on the ear phones, and the phone is not in silent mode. The volume is set high. I can hear the voice of other callers. Any ideas?
I bought a W595 last year in Jan or Feb.It was working fine until suddenly yesterday the ear speaker malfunctioned.The last call i did before the problem started was fine, the ear speaker worked.But yesterday when i called home, the ear speaker stopped working.My parents could hear me speaking but i couldn't hear them but when i turned on the speaker i could hear them.Is there any way i can fix the ear speaker?
When people call me I answer and cannot hear anything through the earpiece. I then turn it on speaker and I can hear the other person. I don't believe this is a fault with the earpiece, because occasionally I have called my voicemail and have been able to hear it through the earpiece.
I have tried pressing the C button on restart, and it has done nothing.
I own a W705 and for the past couple of days the external speaker has stopped working. This means I cannot hear the ring tone, handsfree calls or any music.Also, the headphones which come with the phone stopped working about 2 months ago.PLUS. the charger doesn't always work (it will display the charging icon on the screen, but when I unplug it in the morning it hasn't charged at all. v annoying!). When it DOES say it's charging if you even slightly touch the jack part which is connected to the phone, it thinks it has been disconnected and stops charging (this also happened to my old K6..something, which had the exact same power/headphone socket - so i know this isn't a one-off fault. again, V annoying!). Anyway, the phone was bought unbranded in the UK last Christmas, I live in Cambridge UK and would like to know where I can take the phone to have it repaired or replaced.
I recently purchased a Zylo handset from the Orange Shop. It worked fine until yesterday but now the ear speaker is totally silent on both incoming and outgoing calls. I have checked the loud speaker, which is fine as is the microphone. There appears to be no other issue with the handset at all. Is there some sort of option I have accidentally turned on?
I've just purchased a new Vivaz and it appears that the speaker and microphone sound distorted. All my conversations sound distorted to other listeners. I've tried using Rogers support to reset but it still remains the same. Has anyone else experienced this problem, or is this just the quality of the phone itself.
My satio has a problem that when I open the speaker the person who I talk to said that my voice is not clear and and they hear cut voice, this problem happen to me since I bought the satio but I did not saw it in any of my preivous SE phones, even after I update my phine and try fix any possible usage problem through the update program the problem of the voice still there.
I am using "NAVAR acoustic K850i v0.1 (my mix)" one of the mod driver acoustic for my K850i, I got a quality sound from backspeaker and from my walkman series headset. However I don't get the Loud In-call volume. And when I connect SE MPS-70 speaker to my K850i. I get very low volume. I am getting louder volume in my phone backspeaker than this external speaker.
Have no ring tone (or speaker sound) on my W300i? Before junking it, am trying to reinstall W300i software using SE Update Service. Does anyone know where to find, and install phone driver(s) that work?
I'm trying to download a new software update for my W760a, because it tells me it cannot add anymore contacts and I can't recieve or send texts/ phone calls. When I try to go to the software updates on the W760a hompepage, it loads a blank page. It just says on the tab "Sony Ericsson Support Phones Topic Updateserviceapplication W760a", and loads a blank page. Please help me with this problem as I wish to continue using my new phone.
I thought I may start an Elm/Hazel thread for discussion as it seems many of you have one of the two phones now. I wanted to do this to discuss any problems with things like firmware & issues & other stuff rather than discussing this in the picture thread.

As the title implies, I need to ask if there are varying kinds of Sony Ericsson LCD screens for the G705 or if there are variations in models made. Nearly 6 months ago I bought a Sony Ericsson G705 phone off eBay that only needed a new LCD screen. Well I purchased a screen off eBaand was good to go except for a few minor issues... 1.) The LCD screen had a thicker screen/border than the original so I had to mod it by taking off the white border around it. 2.) The ribbon that connects the LCD screen to the G705's keypad wasn't aligned correctly causing it to disconnect from the keypad every so often. This too I had to fix by sticking some paper underneath where the connector sits. It worked after the modifications but the end result is the keypad was raised causing issues where pushing the up key would force it to push the left key too. Unfortunately after awhile the screen stopped working likely due to the fact the different layers were separating. I gave in and bought a new screen from an online dealer elsewhere just to get scammed in the end with a broken LCD screen which they refused to replace claiming I cracked it. So now I've purchased a new screen of eBay yet this one has issues too, it's thinner than the first one I got, but has the same problem where the ribbon doesn't appear to be aligned correctly either. This time however, I get some ugly dead pixels in the lower left corner of the screen and the rest is completely jumbled with white lines going through it. I've already contacted the seller for an exchange and am about to lose all hope getting this phone working. Anyway, back to the topic. Do the screens in the G705 vary from region to region or between versions? When I got it I found the phone was from Hong Kong (firmware was HK anyway.) though the manual and included paperwork suggested it was from France. The screens I have purchased seemed to have varying differences between either the thickness is too wide, the ribbon doesn't fit the correct position, or some other incompatibility. I bought this phone.
Please help someone I have encountered my first Elm problem. Over night I charged the phone & this morning it's still charging & will not pass 66% charge. I took battery out put back in & charged with the phone off for another hour. When switched back on it was now @ 65% This was after another hour of charging with the phone off. I then did a master reset of all not just settings. Charged it up again for a further hour & still the charge is not increasing. Please help what the hell is going on? This battery has a mind of it's own. I have a feeling something has occured since I kept plugging & unplugging quite often the phone in & out of my pc. So maybe it's caused this I do not know. Please any suggestions this phone has been reliable upto this piont Esato Awards King of Garbage 2009/2010 & Best Debater 2009 x10 & Nokia N8
My Sony Vivaz was working properly and then suddendly applications stopped working. Then I noticed the applications I had installed in the memory card are not longer displayed on the screen, and when I try to take a photo it says there is no memory card and that they will be stored in the phone's memory. Additionally, when I try to reinstall the applications I always get the message File error. What is happening to my phone? How can I fix all these problems?
I bought a new sony spiro this weekend and so far has been a pain in the back. It resets when I try to access the camera, sometines it stops playing music at random times, or it simply stops reading my micro sd. Today I installed the newest firmware, but still the same problem continues.
