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?
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 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.
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 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.
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 ?
Had the Sony Xperia Z2 from 15 days ago, Phone is switched itself off with no warning, had 26% battery.. plugged it on charge straight away, nothing but a red flashing light. Its been on charge ever since, so over 1 day, still nothing.
Luckily i have a spare phone so am using that for the time being, however i have 100's of pictures stored on my phones internal memory and contact really need access to them.
Ive tried the volume/power button resets& red button behind SIM card ...
I'm sure this has been done to death but I can't find any links on here. My phone started not working so I switched off, sincve when it won't go past the Sony logo before the screen goes blank. It is seen by the PC for a few seconds every minute or so, and that's it. I can't do anything with it, and the battery is charged and the sim card is not faulty.
My nearly 1 year old W995 has just started to switch itself off for no reason. Battery is charged and have tried a replacement battery also. There is no pattern and just happens at random 2-3 times a day. Have tried the software update but it still happens. Only way to clear the problem is to remove the battery and then it will restart!
Is there anyone with a W995 (Brown cert) with the latest fw R1HA036 who can extract the mentioned app? I'm quite bummed that the new fw doesn't allow manual installation for the Facebook app I've been using since the last fw. It's strange that after the fw update my APAC-ANZ doesn't come with it while another phone with the same CDA and fw does. Actually it does allow manual installation, it just doesn't integrate itself with the phone anymore, ie. able to log on but I can't view any of the pictures, there's no Facebook link for 'send to' in the photo gallery which used to allow me to upload photos directly to my Facebook page etc. Am kinda wondering if any of you kind souls could help me out with this.
As above, bored with my usual sony ericsson menu layout so want to flash my phone to have flash menus. Want to know how i can do that.Its unbranded/unlocked, if that helps.PS3 60GB, PSP 2x, Iphone 3GS 16GB White,SE W995, Nokia n95, Nokia N73 and many more
I have downloaded the latest version of the Ericsson pc suite successfully to my computer. However when I plug the usb cable in and go through the connecting proceedure it get rights the way to the end and then a grey box appears with an error message, send error report, don't send error report and which ever one you click shuts down the pc suite and you have to go through it all again for the same error report at the end!
Love this phone but the lack of a proper password protected keylock is a blight on an otherwise great phone. Is there ever any hope that sony will implement one? Or will I just end up switching to HTC/back to Nokia.
I have a Sony Ericsson W995 and i've had it for about a year now. About 2 weeks ago my space button just randomly packed up. And now my "5" button is also starting to play up, when i press the button nothing happens so sometimes i may be pressing it 10-20 times before it works, Anyone else had this problem? Or can suggest how to fix it?
