Xperia Mini/pro :: Black Screen On Booting Up: Not Rooted, Stock ICS
Oct 26, 2012
My phone doesn't boot up. This has been happening since the last 2 days. The first time it happened, i used Update Service and updated the firmware to the new 4.1.B.0.587. The phone restarted normally after the update but the phone was very laggy. And after sometime, the same issue popped up. The phone would start up to the black screen. Again I used Update Service to do a factory reset and reinstall the new firmware. Formatted the memory card too. Again this issue is there.
I called up Sony Customer Care. They asked me to use PC Companion and repair the phone software. I did that too. Still no luck..
I just got my 3gs 16gb white iphone on Dec 23rd, and it went completely black and died (went black while the battery was pretty full) I was browsing on safari a few minutes prior to noticing it had gone black. I was able to restore it but I'm pretty worried how frequent this is supposed to happen and how dependable the iphone is. I'm not always going to have my laptop with me and the whole point of me getting the iphone was to upgrade to a more reliable device. Also when I restored my phone none of my third party applications were restored. Will I have to download these again? and are the data that was saved within the applications irreplaceable?
So today morning I got a call from one of my college mates. Phone started ringing and when I pressed the 'receive call' button, a message saying 'Android is not responding' appeared. I selected 'Shut Down' option, hoping that it would simply shut down the phone. Since then the screen has been black, not seem to respond to touches, only thing that works is a mechanical ringer volume button on the right side of the phone.
I have a question: I recently my Xperia mini pro (the internal name is K17) get back from a repair process. In this mechanical keyboard is repaired, the way the phone is about 5 months old. After I get back the phone, I've been updating it with PC Companion to the latest Android 4 ICS, which is offered by SE here in Germany. After the update I now have the problem that the phone at least once a day, usually several times the system or maybe the screen seems to freeze. Mostly it reacts no more (the screen stays black), sometimes you can press the power button and the lights of the back and menu button lights up (the screen is still black). Only removing the battery bring the phone back to work again. After a quick phone call to the Supporthotline from SE I performed again with the PC Companion a repair installation with the Android 4 ICS. This has not solved the problem. Has anyone else experienced this? How can I fix it? Is this a hardware problem with the screen or is it the ICS update? Is there an official way back to the 2.3 Gingerbread Stock ROM without send in the phone to SE again and without losing the warranty?
I dropped my phone last week and shattered a part of the screen. The phone continued to work fine and I kept using for a week before I replaced the screen, following these instructions I found on this forum and using this part from ebay. Replacing the phone went pretty well. Now the touchscreen and other phone features work with the new screen, but the screen has black and/or green lines at the top all the time:
What problem does this look like? Did I get a bad part, or did I mess up while replacing the screen?
I also had one tiny little square rubber part on the table when I was done reassembling the phone, but all buttons are pressing normally and everything, besides the screen, is working. The part doesn't seem important, but here's what it looks like:
i bought a sony ericsson xperia x10 mini a couple of weeks ago, works fine but i was downloading live wallpapers from android store and there was one called DIY wallpaper and it made the lock screen look like an iphone one. so i installed it and it asked me if i wanted to change my home screen to the new one and i clicked yes, then my screen went black. I can use the drop down bar but if i click on a notifcation in there nothing comes up on the screen. I can see the start up screen and all that and the unlock screen it all works just no home screen. Ive tried reseting by holding lock button and home button for 4 seconds it resarted but it was the same i could only use the drop down bar.and one more thing, ive connected to computer but i cant get it to do the usb connect because i cant click it on the phone screen.
For no apparent reason, the screen background changes to black and when it does this, I am unable to do ANYTHING at all.....I don't even get txt/call alerts. I tried installing the PC Companion to check for updates and altho it shows on the PC, it didn't register on the phone. I've just spent over an hour fiddling around with it and searching for a solution on the net and now it has suddenly decided to work!
I just bought an 02 mini x10. It's new and came into a sealed box. But first time I switched it on nothing appears on screen. Left it to charge for a whole day (charging indicator lits up) but still nothing. But when I turn it on, the boot music/sound comes in and also I can only see the screen when under sunlight. I can see 'Silent mode " and "settings" on the screen. But the phone switches down when I press on either.
x10mini cant support persian font and i search fo it i found 1 post that he sayed you must change the 3 LIBs (in csystem)and Font i do that and after restart me phone hong siad its write sony ericsson in screen now what can i do ? dose it have flash?
i have some questions to aski'm a possessor of an xperia mini st15i (italian version i think)i rooted the stock .587 ics, installed via xparts a sort of clockworkmod emulation (cause it's on system partition i think) and flashed phone with real ics 4 for locked bootloader based on stock .462 i did this following some howtos in this forum and whitout unlocking bootloader.now i would like to unlock that bootloader, install native clockworkmod and the android official version from google, possibly gingerbreadcause speed issues on ics, here are the questions can i proceed following normal howtos ignoring what i did to my phone?are there any guide to read?do exist some ics based rom for locked bootloader that gives an evident increase of performance?
I see that on the Android Market that there is an app called SDCardXD for Xoom which allows a US stock Xoom 3.2 to write to the external SD card; [URL] Info on the app states; "SDCardXD is a simple file manager with sole purpose of allowing stock U.S. Xoom owners to write to their external SD Card from their Xoom. NO ROOT is required and works on Xoom tablets running 3.2.x stock operating system. Select a file, select where you want to put it, and paste it there." Not knowing the exact difference between US and UK stock 3.2 do you think this will work on a UK stock 3.2 XOOM?
I want to disable the clock on the status bar, I'm on stock 5.1 , rooted. I don't want to flash a rom just so that I can disable it, is there any other way. Nova launcher does it, but it's just in the launcher, not system wide.
I'm running stock 6.0.1 rooted with Xposed (only using gravitybox). When I do the double tap on power to launch the camera, nothing happens other than the power button functioning normally. It did work at one point but I'm not sure if it was an app, Xposed or a system setting which stopped this feature from working. I tried disabling Gravitybox but left Xposed itself still installed. I've also tried changing the "Power buttons locks instantly" setting under Security but that didn't make any difference either.
When sending large attachments (numerous pictures), the email stays in an endless loop in the outbox even though the email has been sent.(Recepient receives email, but the email stays in the outbox saying "email could not be sent")Also, when receiving emails with multiple pictures not all pictures are accessible, why?
my n97mini have a problem... sometime when i receive a sms,the screen just gone black... it happen after i unlock the key... the screen basically is black but the phone still functioning as can make phone call and receive call also... so far,the only way for me to get back the screen to work would be take out the battery... does anyone else have the same problem as me? just now was the 3rd time this problem occur... it does not occur very frequently... could b due to i does not restart the phone?
it's been frozen for 10 days only showing the SE logo and it won't start at all.I tried everything on the PC companion (even the repair phone link) and nothing works; when i click on repair and choose the model and set it on flash mode, it starts downloading.After 30 seconds, the download stops (i see it stopped because the lamps from my modem stop blinking) and after 5 minutes, i get the error saying that there's an internet connection problem.
This is the second time my mobile's screen going black. The first time the mobile automatically restarted, but in the second time I had to look for the restart button and restart it my self. Why is this happening, and how can I prevent it from happening one more time. (I don't want to do a software repair...)
