Sony Ericsson :: W995 Cannot Charge Battery And Red Light Flashing
Sep 2, 2010
put it on charge last night as i normally do, then when i looked at it after about an hour, it said: Cannot Charge Battery, Please use a Sony Ericsson Battery, I still had about 50% battery so i switched it on and it goes past the turn on / flight mode menu then theres just a white screen saying please insert correct sim. The red light is also flashing.
I discovered that i can use the C905 Xenon light as a torch by the camera's video mode then press down to switch on the light. My boy-friend who has W995 is wondering if there is a similar way of using the video LED light on his phone as a torch as well or able to get a java application that does this like on i had on my K800?
I just purchased a Sony Ericsson W995 some 7 weeks ago. It has been at a SE service center for 6 weeks out of the 7 weeks I have owned it because the light in the display "I think" does not work as it should? But the service center keep saying the phone is OK? Now here is what it does: Sometimes when "pressing a button" in keys locked mode the light turns on in the right way "up to the specified dimmed light" 0-"I guess" 50% light, because it's keylocked.
But sometimes it turns on very weak and then in 3 or 4 steps reaches the specified dimmed mode. (0-50% light). But sometimes it never reaches the specified dimmed 50% of light, before turning of again. Same when slighting it open, or going from light of "without key lock activated" it sometimes turns on fine "from 0-100% light" like all other mobilphones does and all SE phones I have owned before this one"! but sometimes it turns on again in several steps before reaching 100% light.
Whenever i exit an internet application the internet icon is still displayed on top of the screen until i turn phone off. checked running apps and theres nothing there. why is that? how do i activate light sensor on the phone? do i set the brightness at 80%?
I currently have here a Faulty C905 which just wont turn on. When i charge it or plug it into the PC there a red light that appears below the charging port. Nothing more. When i attempt to turn on the C905 nothing happens, no vibration. Please can you help me identify the problem. No warranty.
I have had this phone now for about 4 months and i like the phone a lot...i dont use the phone a lot at all realy may get 1 call a day and make 1 call a day and send receive some messages so i can go all most a week with out charging but in the last week it has started going flat in just 24 hrs...this happend once before and then i found that there was a app running so once i turned that off it was right but this time i cant find anything running...what should i do !
I notice a flashing red light on the side of phone. I put the phone on charge seemed to be charging ok approx 5 hours later took it off charge. I used phone and noticed the battery indicator showing 1 red bar the phone bleeped low battery and turned off. I've done all normal trouble shooting tips still the same. I've bought original Sony Ericsson charger and battery that hasn't worked either.
my K850 was working fine ...... i went to my university ...... was working fine but when i just randomly pulled it out to message my friend i found out that my phone was off ! i pulled out the battery, put it back again ! turned the phone on .......... but all it did was flash the lights of the keypad and the camera light on the back ! no screens at all ! i left it alone !!! after 30 mins or so i tried again and the phone turned on ..... but was slow ! i did a master reset ........ but after that it would keep getting held on the sony erricsson logo ! after some time ........ the same keypad light an camera light thing started again ! i came home ........ flashed the phone with A2 Uploader ....... it flashes ok but keeps doing the same thing !
I do not use my phone much and my W995 used to last of over a week on one charge. After a recent software update at the beginning of September 2010, my battery now only last a couple of days. Does anyone have any suggestions on why this might be?
I own a Sony Ericsson W580i and lately I am having problems with it.
The problem is as follows...
When I plugin the phone to charge it shows a red light and no matter how many hours I charge it the same thing happens. and when I try to switch on the phone it doesnt start.
Kindly let me know what could be a possible problem.As there is no SonyEricsson authorised service centre close to my place I showed the phone in a store and he said it might be a mother board problem.I dint leave the phone with that guy as I did not trust him. if it actually might be a mother board problem or is it jus a battery problem.I am planning to go to the service centre in a short while and want to get an idea as to what might possibly be wrong...
It's doing that whole "Can not charge battery, please insert a sony ericsson battery" when it is a Sony Ericsson battery Is there anyway to fix this without going to the store you got it from, its the third time this has happened and im sick of having to return it then go three weeks without a phone.
I flashed my w810i with Phone XS a few times and everything was fine. I then flashed it again and changed the acoustics and camera files (qwertys acoustics pimped megabass 2 an I can't recall the camera files) and since then my battery life went from about 5-7 days to a max of 2. I have since used SEUS but it hasn't made a difference.
I have had a C902 for over a year now. The battery is the same one I have used from day 1. However last week it wouldn't turn on and when I try charge it a message comes on screen and says it cannot charge please use Sony Ericsson battery. I am a little confused because its the same battery I have been using since I got it new.
I'm starting to think that the C902 has got a buildt in Virus or something that corrupts the firmware every few months. I've had my phone back for repairs about 3 times now to reload the software and now I'm stuck with a new problem again. The battery is dead and when I plug it in to charge it it tells me that I don't have a genuine Sony Ericsson battery and therefor doesn't want to charge. I can't even reload the firmware my self because of the dead battery. Is there some code or something to force charge the battery?[ This Message was edited by: volkvanmyn25 on 2009-10-28 04:34 ]
Even though I love my C702 I have been having some problems with it. To begin with it sort of locks up every now and then (like if I am typing an SMS). Secondly, it resets itself. Sometimes several times over, rendering it practically useless for minutes. Thirdly, if it dies out because I can't charge it because the battery empties, it wont charge, and takes forever to get it to do so. And lastly, it has several "pauses" during music playback, several in each song. Quite irritating, especially when I am out running. And the phone tells me I have the latest firmware.
I was installing the latest software update on my new Satio tonight and didn't realise I had insufficient battery charge until midway through the update. The phone crashed before finishing the update and now doesn't seem to take a charge, I have taken out the battery, SIM card and memory card and put them all back in, and had the phone connected to the charger for over an hour, but I have no indication from the phone that it is charging and it won't boot up. I tried running the update again but it failed again as well.
I don't know if this is in the right section but: I have had my SE C903 for a while now, I haven't had any problems up to now. I forgot to charge it before I went out, and when I got home it had died. The thing wouldn't charge, it came up with a message "Battery cannot be charged. You must use a Sony Ericsson battery." I don't understand this as it is the original battery which came with the phone. When I turn it on, it just comes up with another message "Insert correct SIM card". I am using the SIM which came with the mobile phone, so I don't get that either. My laptop recognizes the phone to be used as a mass storage device, but SEUS will not update the firmware. Any ideas what's wrong with it?
In a usage time of this phone I had a problem with function Wi-fi. At connection to ad-hoc networks the exchange of packages does not occur. What should I do? I tried to adjust ip-addresses and a network mask manually, to change cryptography techniques, but it hasn't helped.
I have just acquired a W995 & have set up a Wi-Fi link to my home network but am not sure if it is using that instead of my Mobile Phone connection. The Wi-Fi icon is green but when I try to connect to the internet a small e appears above the signal strength bars. Using a French network provider, my data allowance is very small, so would prefer to use Wi-Fi to pick up e-mail & other internet services. How can I force a Wi-Fi connection if one is available ?
