Xperia PLAY :: Flashing Red Light On Power Button?

Dec 2, 2011

I've just bought an Xperia Play and I'm having trouble using it. I've been charging it for about 5 hours and the only thing that's happening is a flashing red light on the power button. I've tried all the suggestions I've found (such as taking the battery in and out, swapping the SD card etc.) and none of them seem to work. Is there anything else I can try?

Red Light Flashing / Xperia Play Will Not Turn On

Dec 1, 2011

I was checking my phone one morning when it asked me to update, after that a message popped up saying that for the next update the phone had to be turned off for about 5 minutes. It never turned on again after that.I already posted a discussion notice about it not turning and the wonderful team member helped me and told me to flash my phone and try the updater. I've done both now and my phone is yet to turn on.I believe the flashing must of done something as now the LED light on the power button flashes red when I hold down it. But it still does not turn on.This has been really frustrating and the problem still continues to go on.Now when I try pc companion update service and hold the back button and connect the phone my PC doesn't recognize the device. Same message pops up if I just plug my phone in normally.

*I've been using the phone 2-3 months before this happened
*I bought it online and cannot return
*I really need help.

Xperia X10 :: Red Light On And Power Button Not Working?

Aug 21, 2011

I've had some problems with my X10 lately. Admittedly this was after a full-on day in the Scottish Highlands where the phone was exposed to cold and rain. Getting back into a warm car the phone started going mental, the led lights flashing like a Christmas party disco and the vibrate constantly on. After a session on the radiator I got some life out of the phone. It basically works except for the following:

- the top left power button to standby/turn the phone off does nothing (the phone switches itself on when you put the battery in)

- same for the bottom middle button to standby, although it will bring the main desktop up.

- the red led light is on permanently (this is so annoying)

I have re-flashed Gingerbread and had the phone on charge for hour upon hour to no avail. I have installed a free widget that puts the phone on standby but I can't power it down without taking the batter out.

getting the power button working and telling me if there's a way (hardware or software) to get the red LED light to go out (this means that any messages/missed calls reders the green light inoperative)

Xperia PLAY :: Power Button's Stopped Working?

Jul 14, 2012

So the Power/Lock button on my Xperia Play has stopped working.

It's my Girlfriend's old phone, and she says it's around a year and 2 months old, so it's out of warranty (Assuming the warrranty is a year)

Thinking it was a software issue, I took the battery out and put it back in again, but now the phone won't turn on, as said button is not working.

Xperia PLAY :: Not Booting - Only Vibrates On Pressing Power Button

Sep 26, 2012

My partner's Xperia Play decided not to boot this morning. (It was fine at 7.30 but by 8.30 it was dead). On pressing the power button, it vibrates for a few seconds but does not show any other sign of booting. He has tried removing the battery to boot it but to no avail. When he plugged it into his laptop, the machine failed to recognise the device. It just continuously made the device connect then device disconnect sounds. The laptop is only a couple of weeks old so I highly doubt that it's an issue with the USB ports. It does not detect the phone long enough to perform an update. Is it possible that the USB cable is faulty, or the USB port on the phone? Or could it be a compatibility issue with the laptop?

Xperia PLAY :: Display Wont Wakeup By Using Power Button

Jan 4, 2012

I have a 9 month old Xperia Play through Verizon, about a week ago, I started having this intermitten porblem where the display wouldn't wake up by using the power button or the home button. Sometimes it works on a single press, other times it takes multiple presses. occassionally it refuses to wakeup at all, forcing me to pull the battery. I have already tried a settings reset and begrudgingly follwed up with a factory reset, which of course whipped 9 months of data away. Neither reset process had any affect. I have really grown attached to this phone and would hate to lose it

BB Bold :: 9900 Will Not Power Up - Flashing Red Light

Dec 6, 2012

I have had my 9900 for just over a year after upgrade from a 9000. I loved the phone until two weeks ago I did a upgrade to Blackberry Appworld. Once the upgrade completed it asked for a restart and then the phone became a brick. It would not restart and the red light just flashes. After contacting support and following suggestions to try and make the phone connect to the desktop software without success I took the phone back to Rogers who sent it away to the repair shop. The result... not able to be repaired. Somehow this is now the customers problem because something that no one can identify went wrong with the software upgrade process. No support from Blackberry just what Rogers has to offer which is that I can do an early upgrade to another phone for more money.

BB Torch :: 9850 LED Light Flashing, Won't Power Up?

Dec 13, 2011

I have tried all the fixes on this forum and the two I found (AppLoader and Car charger) didn't work. how to hard reset the power management system for a Torch 9850. We just got this phone one month ago and this is our second phone with the same problem. Verizon has no clue and just replaces the phone. I can't believe that RIM would sell a device with this many hardware issues. There must be a way to force a reset of the power management system?

Aug 26, 2010

I am having an issue with my Curve 8520. I was using today and all of a sudden, it went blank on me. Now I try to boot it up again, even when its charging, and all I get is a flashing red light. It flashes 1 time, then it flashes 3 more times, some times faster, some times slower. Been looking for support (done the battery pull and everything) and ways to fix it, but don't find anything. Just have a black screen, its not detectable by the computer, and it only flashes red.

Motorola Motoactv :: Flashing Light Under Music Button?

Jun 9, 2012

Charged my MotoActv, I noticed a flashing LED on the top right of the screen so I thought that was an indicator showing it was fully charged. However the light is under the music button and it continues to flash. I check the instruction manual and didn't notice anything referencing what it might be.

BB Curve 83xx :: Flashing Red Light / No Power / Curve Not Recognized By DM

Feb 2, 2010

I installed the BB desktop manager for Mac yesterday, and this morning connected to remove some apps, create some space, and install all the updates. In the process of this it mysteriously just stopped doing anything right after it said "database cannot be backed up" and shut off. Now it's flashing red twice, pausing for about 2 seconds, and repeating the flashing. I pulled the battery and sim even though I was sure that wouldn't do anything, plugged it back into my laptop, plugged it into the wall both with and without the battery, and nothing has changed. The desktop manager doesn't not recognize the device at all.

I'm using a Curve 8330. Is there anything I can do or am I screwed totally? Also, and I know this is a long shot, but what are the odds that I can restore the device and save the data that's on it?

BB Curve :: Light Blue Flashing Light On 8310?

Sep 15, 2011

I am on a curve 8310 I think it is with an annoying flashing blue light. I think it's a cross between a white and blue as it's a pale blue light. I have turned off every notification I can find, email, text, facebook etc. I have deselected the LED option ( changed to none) I cannot figure how WHY this light keeps blinking. I've taken the battery out, i'm at my wits end.

Xperia X8 :: Screen Doesn't Lock When Press Power Off Button

Sep 1, 2012

I'm currently facing this problem and it's really annoying. I never update my phone or whatever because it will slow it down.

My phone went out of battery and it turned off. So i plug the charger in and waited for it to restart. After restarting it, I realize there are several settings that ran away IE: My ringtone preferences and keyboard preferences. So far, I've already readjust it, But ever since the phone restarted like that, I can no longer lock my screen, not even if it times out itself after 15 seconds. and when i press and hold the power off button, instead of showing the menu for options like "Silent phone"/Flight mode"/"Shut down" it only shows power off. What can i do to get the original settings back ?

Xperia X10 :: Way Back To The Power Button Ending A Call In Android 2.1?

Feb 22, 2011

I got used to end calls quickly that way in Android 1.6 and it worked pretty well for me for several moths. I actually found it a very good idea, one of the best and most intuitive since I started to use it.ow I often do not end my calls properly and that cauese me a lot of trouble. Local SE customer support told me that it is a firmware matter and cannot be changed. Isn't there any HW buttons configurator or another way to configure the HW buttons on the phone?
