Red Light Blinking, Dead ?

You try to start your phone but the red light at the infrared port blinks 5 times and phone refuses to start. XS++ and SeTool 2 lite no longer detect your phone. Your computer also does not identify your phone. ANd its seems to be completely Dead..Read On, We will fix it.

Redlight blinking is a Sign of Low Battery or a Dead EROM. Some time during flashing the EROM goes dead or corrupt due to errors.  If phone has a bad EROM it shuts down and does not start even if battery is charged to full.

Double Check that battery is not the problem before you proceed to flash the EROM.

In that case we have to repair the EROM. And now here we will discuss the easiest way to fix it.

Note: Before you use SeTool 2 lite you will need to have USB flash drivers installed. If you are visiting this website for the 1st time its highly likely that you do not have the USB Flash drivers installed. Please follow the USB flash driver installation tutorial in tutorials section to install them. And kindly borrow your friend’s Sony Ericsson Phone to install usb drivers because your phone is dead.

Using SeTool2 lite 1.11 we can fix this problem by this way.

  1. Start SeTool 2 lite
  2. Press Unlock\Repair Button, The first button.
  3. Reinsert Battery
  4. Connect phone holding 2+5
  5. Wait, SeTool 2 lite will repair the EROM, it will flash it back.
  6. Done

Now you can start your phone.

Regards Akshay.

    Hi Aks,

    This happened to my wife Z610i… Red light blinking and xs++, Far and SEtoollite can’t detect… apparently after leaving it overnight the phone just work when we tried it in the morning… don’t know what happened but its working now…

  2. Akshay says

    hey man .. redlight blinks even if battery is zero
    when battery falls below 5% it starts off to blink in all SE Phones .. i think that was the case with your phone .. with such low battery u can’t connect phone to xs++

  3. semaj says

    Its not the battery… because I even tried my k550 battery (80% full) in my wife z610 phone… it still won’t work… her battery that time was 60%full… k550 & Z610 has same battery BST-33… I even tried her battery on my phone and it’s working… thats why I’m very confused… and when her phone boot up in the morning it created a loud single beep… I don’t really understand what happened…

  6. rakesh joshi says

    hi akshay again i wanna need a skin that comes in w850i in which the menu icon is animated or moveable how can i do that to my phone also

  7. Akshay says

    Martin .. why did you this this EROM Flash ??
    i mean Unlock\Repair
    its to be done only if your phone was dead
    !!

    now try to repair it again .. charge battery max
    there is no other way out of this problem

    rakesh joshi
    hey man download all flash menus from my downlod page .. and install them using FAR manager or XS++ .. see the tutorial for them

  8. Akshay says

    Martin you need to HOLD C and connect phone to Computer .. not 2+5
    you connect with 2+5 only when phone is dead

  9. CW says

    I have a Sony Ericsson S500 and i am getting the red LED flashing. I tried the 2+5 method using SEtool, but it didn’t rectify the issue. Akshay can you help me sort this problem?

    THanks!

  10. Akshay says

    and why did that happen in first place ?
    i hope your battery was full !!

  11. CW says

    yes it was full, but i believe that the wrong S500 GDFS flile was loaded onto the handset. Phones are not a porblem but is there a way to recticfy this problem.

    P.S
    You have some nice tutorials here on the page

  12. Akshay says

    heyy ! if you wrote wrong gdfs then phone is dead completely .. if you can write back original gdfs then fine.
    may be you can try out writing back original
    but you might need service cable . and that too no gurantee of fix

  13. CW says

    okay thanks for the info. nice new look and all. lookin forward for some other stuff from you guys.

  14. Nicole says

    hi akshay… my boyfriend was downloading some themes from my computer to his and then sudenly it went blank.. it froze up. we took the battery out and change it with his mother’s one which was full on. it didn’t work.. only a red light flashes on the right side .. do you thing what you say we should do works even if we weren’t flashing it??

    :( :( helpp

  15. Akshay says

    hey !
    i have no idea what happened to your phone !
    Its mostly a case of dead battery or dead battery circuitry inside the phone !
    Or Try connecting your phone to XS++ ! if it does then fine ! if it does not then EROM is dead ! very sad ! EROM is very though to fix ! Sony Ericsson Service Center Replaces your phone for FREE if your phone is in warranty !

    now we need to know technical details of your phone .. you have not even mentioned phone name !

    First install USB Flash drivers, then connect phone to XS++ holding C, if it connects then fine
    else connecting using 2+5 and see what it says ! if its getting detected in 2+5 then is bad EROM !
    and we can try to fix it with SeTool 2 lite !

    Please Install SEUS update service ! or install drivers manually !
    http://forums.se-nse.net/index.php?showtopic=17540

    LOL ! you got my name correct !

  16. Nicole says

    jajaj yeshhh sorry.. it was a w580i ericsson.. but no problem my bf change it recently but the company had no idea what happen.. u know what was strange is that red light blinking.. nd i know it wasnt the battery.. very odd i hope its not something common because im going to get one, too.. so thanks for your help akshayyy} you rock!! :D ..

    o and by the way.. what do you get when you flash the phone.. i want to do it but im scared it could damage the phone and then not get the warranty or something

  17. Akshay says

    check out this site

    http://walkmans.wordpress.com

    they provide content
    and we provide methods to install that content ;)

    check out the amazing flash menus ! amazing icons ! completely customization ! more walkman skins ! etc are few examples !
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRtzrVT5Xbo

  18. Nicole says

    flashing or unlocking.. a lil confused :$

  19. Nicole says

    omgggg that video is amazing!! do you have to flash it in order to make it do that??

  20. Peti says

    Depends on the phone. If you have a Walkman mobile or your phone supports flash menus, swf files, then you don’t have to reflash it. You just have to upload the swf and thm files to the phone. Otherwise you will have to do a crossflash… but w580 is a walkman model, so it’s just uploading files then.

  21. Akshay says

    that’s flashing, customization not unlocking !
    you will be use FAR manager or XS++ to customize your phone… to change the way it looks !
    and for Sysgrafix you use Setool 2 lite or JD flasher to apply patch !
    Sys Gfx is changing phone’s graphics by directly replacing pictures in phone’s firmware with own pictures ! like changing radio skin, or any graphic non – text object..!

  22. Peti says

    But is more complicated, and also the phone can get into need of reflashing. (own experience.. :D )

  23. mrdoa says

    akshayy..help me, i’ve flash EROM K750i CID 36 BROWN to RED using FAR, flash are success,but now the phone can’t be turn on? I try to connect using XS++3.1, SETool2Lite1.11, FAR but it doesn’t detected. What shuld i do? Help me i’m very worry n confiouse..
    Thx in advance…

  24. ivan says

    akshay…. i try to rebrand my SEK750i to w800i, and im failed, my phone is dead too, but there is no red light. please help me to revive

  25. Peti says

    Why not tell what happened? What XS++ wrote…

  26. Felicia says

    Akshay I tried connecting the USB while holding 2+5 but SeTool 2 lite still can’t recognize my phone for some reason. Please help, this is the third W580i I’ve had that’s gone wrong. I really don’t want to go through the process of sending it back in again…

  27. Akshay says

    how did your phone get to this terrible state anyway ?
    install USB Flash drivers… or install SEUS, sony ericsson update service…!
    and what does 3rd w580 gone wrong means ?
    i hope it does not mean you already killed 2 two w580s !

    you should click repair and then connect phone holding 2+5 !
    am sorry for you… you should have report long back !!
    you get immediate reply here usually when i don’t have exams at college…

    i think you better get your phone replaced and don’t touch it again ! or take the help of your friend to get the job done… whatever it is .. debranding or unlocking

  28. isuru says

    hi… thx alt for the service man..
    gues i successfully flashed my k530 to w660.. tho i do not feel the vibrations when scrolling through the main menu.. s it not supported in this fone???

    and when i connected the fone and tried using SE disc to phone sw,
    it says insert memory stick or connect via usb..(when it is already connected)//

    please giv a solution soon.. do i have to install the w660 phone drivers on my pc??

    thx alt..
    isuru

  29. Peti says

    Not all menus vibrate, some don’t. You have to reinstall drivers, because the phone changes its name when you flash it.
    Why do you use Disc 2 Phone anyway? ;)

  30. Felicia says

    Thanks Akshay! I must sound really pathetic but thank you soo much!!

  31. rafael says

    hi akshay, do you have a tutorial in flashing EROM? and also what tool to use.

    Thanks

  32. rafael says

    hi akshay,
    my k800 is dead and im trying to fix it using xs++. unfortunately, i cant make xs++ work. when i connect my fone it stops here:

    08:32:08| XS++ v3.1 (Darwin) Ready !
    08:32:08| Executed on Microsoft Windows XP
    08:32:27|

    after this nothing happens. what could be the problem?
    hope you could help me

  33. Peti says

    This tutorial is about flashing… fixing the EROM, we have no other tutorial about it. Is the red light blinking?

  34. rafael says

    yes peti, i have the dreaded red light blinking. do you know any tool that i could use beside wotan, davinci or kulankendi. is there any tool that is free? all of this tool has a price.

  35. Peti says

    SeTool 2 Lite is free.. I don’t know any other. :P

  36. Tim says

    i think that i have

    1 bad erom (red light flashing/dead)
    2 GDFS is corrupt ( YES, i have backup)

    but when i try to fix erom following above guide it gets to a point where it says loader startup:executed “executing CS loader GDFS startup…”

    and will not proceed past this point.

    Same with GDFS.

    heres a screenshot –
    http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n74/timwood_2006/untitled-1.jpg

  37. Akshay says

    that sucks
    you try to reflash main and fs
    then do a gdfs write of backup

  38. Tim says

    it wont flash. it gets halfway through and then play the disconnecting noise and then fails in the program.

    any help?

    i know my phones fixable cause earlier i did something and i managed to flash it and have it working at W580. but, it was locked to a network so while using the guide to unlocking something screwed up while flashing with the patch and its back to the start again.

    if i cant fix it ill just sony service center it cuase its $50 if its a software problem.

    cheers

  39. Peti says

    Is the battery full?

  40. Tim says

    fixed it. it was the battery lol.

    thank god i left it charging all day.

    cheers for the help.

  44. Rd=) says

    Hi Akshay. My computer won’t detect my k610 phone when i plug in the phone’s data cable. Is it possible when power off? Here is my problem scenario… My k610 won’t turn on, just series of blinking infrared lights, totally black screen, no flash, won’t charge the battery as well. Need urgent help. Please post the solution or email me. Thanks in advance.

  45. Akshay says

    hii ! so EROM is dead
    repair it using above tutorial
    i hope USB Flash drivers are installed
    if not sorry there is no way

  46. Jasper says

    is there som hope for my mobile ?

    CSloader refused to start GDFS services,error is:29
    failed, that is fatal

    it is compeletly dead ? :/

  47. Jasper says

    Where do i get GDFS cause i have same problem as Tim and i dont have backup :(

  48. Peti says

    A guy posted a tutorial about it, there’s always hope. :D Though I can’t find it, it was a mail. :S

  49. Jasper says

    ah ok i must really fix my mobile its my mothers i borrowed it from her she is on vacation now and shes coming home on about 1 week i dont tell her about that yet so please help me to fix the problem :/

  50. Rd=) says

    Ok I will try again. What do you mean reinsert the battery in step 3? Do I have to fully charge the battery and insert it back to the phone?

  51. Akshay says

    hope you guys have battery full…!
    also jasper it does matter even if you choose phone as w580 … it should work fine
    because w580 and k610 are of same platform

  52. Akshay says

    forget it .. i don’t know any method to fix phone if gdfs is gone
    atleast for free… though there is a paid method with SeTool 2 Full .. if i remember

    Jasper you try to do a full reflash of FS and Main
    RD yes .. battery full, reinsert battery

  53. Jasper says

    How do u full reflash of FS and Main RD ? btw if my phone is dead and i put the charger do the battery charging then or do i need other SE phone to charge the battery ?

  54. drizzle says

    Thanks… my w580 died, and the program worked like a charm!! thanks soo much!!

  55. Akshay says

    drizzle .. are you being sarcastic ? or did you just recover a dead phone with this tutorial ??

  56. Dan says

    Hi Akshay. I don’t know whats wrong with my k610. It run out of power the other day then it would not turn on anymore. Series of blinking infrared on top of the phone and a black screen, that’s all i see. I don’t know if it’s the battery or erom problem. I tried to connect my phone in x++ but won’t detect my phone. It shows this message
    Error: Cannot open phone communication port

  57. Akshay says

    then its battery problem
    recharge it maximum

    for XS++ to detect phone USB Flash drivers must be installed.

    and it does not detected Dead EROM phones.
    it can detected them only in 2+5 boot mode.

  58. Rd=) says

    Hey Akshay. I brought my dead sony k610 to cellphone repair store today. Battery works. The technician said it has to be reprogram or reformat. Do you know how they do it? Could you tell me. Please help. Thanks in advance. You’re a mobile genius/savvy/geek.

  59. Akshay says

    no idea… let them try..! if they fix it then great!
    i doubt.. if gdfs is gone.. they won’t be able to
    i hope you are lucky !! its EROM was gone.. if red light blinks

  60. dan says

    akshay, i can’t get this to work. does sim card and memory stick has to be removed when repairing erom? when i run setool2, press unlock/repair, then reinsert battery, then hold 2+5 and plug in my k610 data cable, it just flash a red light again. How long i have to hold 2+5?

  61. dan says

    i read many forums on the web. people suggest wanton client, kulankendi, cruiser, etc. but they are paid version i think. and not sure if they really works. =(

  62. Akshay says

    it will detect it if connect phone holding 2+5
    if its still not getting in then battery is not full

  63. dan says

    in setool, the default phone type is k310. mine is k610 so i select it. then two check box comes up. first is bypass db2020 security. second is use “quick access” path. what check box need to be tick?

  64. Akshay says

    no you don’t have to check any options
    its not even mentioned here. choose phone as k610

  65. Souraiya says

    Hey akshay, i turned my mobile SE W580i off, now can’t switch it on, there is just a red light blinking…….Plz help, what do i need to do?

  66. Akshay says

    battery is low… recharge it !! EROM won’t die just like that.

  67. Souraiya says

    well, i tried but there is no sign of it getting charged! and still cant turn it on!

  68. Akshay says

    some how get it recharged and try connecting your phone to SeTool 2 lite holding C…! or XS++

    to install usb flash drivers you need to connect phone holding 2+5 and then connect it

    better goto service center. they will give you new phone. because you are new here you won’t be able to install usb drivers and then repair it using setool 2 lite.
    but here is tutorial.
    remember you need to connect holding 2+5 during install not C as the tutorial was written for normal working phones.
    http://www.akshayy.com/sonyericsson/tutorials/installing-usb-flash-drivers/
    then repair using setool2 lite

  69. Souraiya says

    thanks………for the help!

    CID53 ? that sucks
    no support for that

  73. rafael says

    can i downgrade it using setool or any tool?

  74. Peti says

    CID downgrading is not possible. I think it just may work if you had an old GDFS backup, but I’m not sure if it can be restored. :S

    I saw the same error when I tried to flash W800 CID 49 firmware on a CID 49 K750. Is the CID number of the phone correct?

    hi

    after this problem of before the problem????

  90. Peti says

    After the phone couldn’t start and before connecting with 2+5.

  91. nap says

    hey

    i tried to do that. but the software is not detecting the phone!

    so is it still possible to do this??? if it is then how do i do it????

  92. Peti says

    And you have drivers installed? Maybe a little extract from XS++ log would help.

  93. nap says

    yeah i have the drivers installed!

    its says

    i cant even get past identifying the phone! im getting lost around the 2+5 or pressing “C” area. please help.

  95. Akshay says

    ey ! no drivers installed or something. phone always connects in 2+5 if it not physically damaged. if phone is damaged by hardware then it can’t be fixed this way.

    nap.. what exactly is the problem ?? XS++ can’t detect phone ? try connecting phone to XS++ holding 2+5 and let us know what happens.

    if your red light is not blinking then its not EROM dead problem.. remeber that. buy you can stil try to repair it using this method.

  96. nikhil says

    hey akshay, i hav a k790i n i think da eron’s damaged.. nw i rem my batt was jus 14% full wen it happ, so i was wonderin if i could still recahrge da batt wiit da same piece or will hav hav 2 look 4 an alternative batt??

  97. Peti says

    Why don’t you try doing so then? The worst thing that can happen, is that the red light will blink or it won’t charge the battery, but these can’t harm the phone at all.

  98. bhuvan says

    heyy akshay….big prolm…plzz help me out…ma hands r shivrng…cuz…m in a big trouble!!!

    dude that’s foolish. GDFS restore tutorial clearly says when to restore gdfs.

    now just reflash fs/main/cda. that’s all
    lol
    see the xs++ flashing/debraing tutorial in tutorial section.

  100. nikhil says

    hey my batt is 86% full but wen i try doin da repair i still get an error which says “CSloader refused to strat GDFS services, error is :29″ plz help….

  101. nikhil says

  102. Akshay says

    does your phone connect to XS++ ?
    try to do a full reflash on main and fs using setool 2 lite in 2+5 mode only.

  103. Dan says

    Thank you so much. You’ve saved me 20$ in order for the local service center to “repair” it.

  106. Stuart says

    Akshay please help me. My W810i died, it shut down on me, would start then shut down, white screen, now it starts and only shows theme background and no menu. What do you think is up with it. red light is not flashing, connects to xs++ ok db2010 erom cid49 firmware is R4DB005 Does it need flashing? what with ? I dont want to change anything on my phone just want it to work.

  107. Peti says

    Yes, it needs flashing. Probably you only need to reflash FS. But I only found later Firmwares, so you reflash main, backup your contacts, reflash FS, upload a custpack.

    (CENT_EUROPE stuff)

  108. Peti says

    Well flashing FS formats the phone memory, better be careful with it. But I couldn’t find the main that would be compatible with your current FS, and they might be incompatible, so it is better to flash FS, too. But before doing so, you must backup your stuff, your CONTACTS!! with MyPhoneExplorer…
    I suggest reading the K550 -> W610 crossflashing tutorial, because it writes a lot about flashing basics, and also there you can read more about the process (like taking out the battery ;) ).
    FAR Manager is not necessary, XS++ can also do the customizing, the third link. ;)

  109. Stuart says

    Thanks Peti im new to all this, So i can go into xs++ flash main firm ware with r4ea031 main generic hn red49 then flash flash file system with r4ea031 fs europe 2 red49 and then exit?? do i need to remove battery between flashes? do i need to go back in and do anything or is that it? So i dont have to go into far manager?? as part of this?
    A flashing tutorial i read Said DONT FLASH YOUR FILESYSTEM AS IT WILL OVERWRITE EVERY THING. So do you say its ok to do this and i need to to fix this ???
    Sorry first time im a little nervous

  110. Peti says

    Stupid WordPress! Look one post above. ;)

  111. Reza says

    hay.. today i have flushed a new filesystem and main… and after that i also wrote the gdfs (my own backup)on the phone. Now when i connect the phone to the pc the infra. light blinks 1 time.

    nothing happens if i connect using ‘c’ but detects if using ‘2+5′ ..

    Is my cell gone??? what should i do now?? plz help..

  112. Peti says

    So why not follow this tutorial?
    Probably SeTool will fix it. If not, you will have to take it to a service center….

  113. Reza says

    YYYYYYYEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS.. my k800i is now fine and working.. Still have a network lock on it.. but it can be fixed.. Thank Peti for the reply.. thanks a lot for the post…
    YYYYYYYEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS

  114. Stuart says

    Hi peti, 1 more question before i flash my phone, im not worried about backing up my contacts, but in a tutorial on this site it says about backing up GDFS says i need to using X++ . My version is v1.2 and doesnt seem to have the back up gdfs function is this only availible in v2.0 and do i need to do this back up?
    Thanks for yr help

  115. Peti says

    Backing up GDFS is an optional step. I never needed my backup, but it is better to have one, because it can get damaged, and if you don’t have backup, your phone might be lost forever (bricked).
    So create a backup!! Use XS++ 3.1, download from our other site.

  116. Stuart says

    Peti, downloaded xs++3.1 and backed up gdfs ok then flashed main and fs with downloads you supplied thanks again. But it had problems with customising i did as the tutorial on here said made up folder named it own_custpac and loaded yr cust pac into it but it said customising failed then flashing failed. Could i have just selected a cda from the list allready there? did i have to make my own cust pack? xs++ 3.1 wont reconise phone now comes up with this

    sending db2010_cid00_prodid_p3l.bin
    payload failed
    sendingproduction__idloader
    sending db2010_cid00_prodid_p3l.bin
    Header failed
    Activating GDFS

    xs ++ v 1.2 seems to reconise phone but still probs in there too

  117. Stuart says

    Please help :(

  118. Akshay says

    XS++ 1.2.. isn’t that…..bad

    which phone ??

    USE XS++ 2.2….!! then reflash fs/main/cda all correctly.

    phone will work all well.

  119. Stuart says

    W810i can i just select one of the cda s from the list on xs++ instead of selecting own cust pack?
    thanks for yr help

  120. Peti says

    It’s better to use own custpack. Download from seflashing.extra.hu. ;)

  121. Akshay says

    yes sure. choose any db2010 phone and select the custpack that matches your FS.

    if you want only english language then choose any cda… but a db2010 phone cda.

  122. Stuart says

    Thanks for being patient with me.
    Ran it again using main and fs peti sent me and selecting xs++ cda cda102555/10 europe 1 same cda as was on the phone before.
    says customising failed and flashing failed

    says
    sending loaders\db2010_cid49red_cs_r5a.bin

    failed sending header 0x10
    loaders\db2010_cid49red_cs_r5a bin is missing

    does this mean i have a file missing out of my downloads Its running R4DB005 firmware peti sent me R4EA031 main and fs to use on it

  123. Akshay says

    actually which version of XS++ you are using.
    and which phone..?? tell me all that.

    as i told USE XS++ 2.2 or else it won’t work

  124. Stuart says

    Sorry w810i just tried it using xs++v1.2 will download v2.2 and try that thanks

  125. Stuart says

    connected to xs++ v2.2
    Says sending db2010_cid00_prodid_p31.bin
    Prologue failed
    will not connect with phone

  126. Stuart says

    tried 10 times it finally let me in and i was able to carry out flahing again with xs++ 2.2
    Still failed
    said
    Sending loaders db2010_cid49red_cs_r5a.bin
    seems to fail when its in the customising process
    Is it just the cda causing the proplems

  127. Stuart says

    What is the bin file it keeps refering to and having problems with

  128. Stuart says

    or is it that cda102555/10 europe1 cannot be used with R4EA031 this phone is enough to drive any one crazy

  129. Stuart says

    Or is the problem that i cant write R4EA031 main and fs over the top of R4DB005
    Has any one got links to R4DB005 main and fs

  130. Peti says

    It can’t be the problem. I have only R4C and R4E main & fs. Maybe the custpack is wrong…

  131. Stuart says

    ive tried using the cda s that are in xs++ and tried selecting cda102555/10
    then cda102555_2 none seem to work maybe the ones in xs++ dont have enough info maybe i need to select the cust pac but that didnt work last time either

  132. Akshay says

    Stuart……!! So you have a w810.
    Using XS++ 3.1 !! Try to Reflash Main + FS …!! Then try customization.
    if that does not work…. then try to repair EROM using this tutorial.
    then go for a full reflash of main+FS+cda.

    that should work fine now.

  133. Stuart says

    xs++ 3.1 wont reconise the phone came up with Sending db2010_cid00_prodid_p3l.bin and thats it wont connect. I did try xs++2.2 and it did manage to connect after a while then flashed just main and fs but came up with . sorry yr phone is not supported cannot send flash loader flashing failed
    Then did as u asked setool lite 1.11 pressed repair unlock then connected ph with c button in
    said loader header not accepted cant load id loader and stoped

  134. Stuart says

    Thanks again for yr help Akshay this phone really is testing us ummm any other ideas

  135. Mike says

    Mike. in 2+5 mode you reflash main+fs.
    god only knows why your phone went into this Red light state…. i hope its EROM dead and not something else really

    Stuart… man your phone is refusing by all means.
    now only try is SeTool 2 lite.
    flash the main fs and cda with it.

    there will be a big empty box in setool 2 lite.
    put the mbn fbn and hit flash .
    then again you add to zip the cda files and then put in that empty box and hit flash. hope setool 2 lite fixes your phone.

    actually you can use Setool 2 lite also to debrand/flash etc.

  137. Mike says

    So like wat do i do akshay

  138. Stuart says

    tried on se tool to flash main and fs
    no good either
    loader payload not accepted

    Recovery needed
    Whats a recovery on a phone done them lots on pcs

  139. Akshay says

    hey MIKE.. i will mail you in 5-6 days.
    just google search repair db2020 corrupt gdfs. you should fine a tutorial .. till then

  140. Ooi says

    I love u… thank you!!! You save my phone…

  141. dan says

    setool is a virus. it contains a trojan called generic.

    dont use it.

    and ive tried every unblocking tool and i still cant unbrick my freinds k800

  142. Mike says

    Ok i’ll keep on the look out

  143. Akshay says

    DAN…. that’s silly… i can’t help your stupid anti virus.

    SeTool 2 lite has nothing to do with your computer dude…

  144. Olivia. says

    hey :)
    suddenly my sony ericsson s500i wont turn on.
    when i try it vibrates once and thats all.
    i put the charger in as well but nothing works.

    i dont know what to do?
    please help.

    x

  145. Peti says

    @ dan: SeTool is recognized as Trojan Generic (by NOD32), but generic means that it has no name, like the trojan in it is not recognizable, it is only, that it has some functions that could harm a pc, but it can’t understand how… Besides you can download it from any site, it will be infected (or considered infected by NOD32), and many flashers still use it, we never haved problems with it….
    @ Olivia: If you still have warranty, then bring it to a SE service center. If you don’t, remove M2 and SIM cards from it, backup GDFS, and reflash Main and FS, and upload a custpack… This (almost) always helps. ;) (You will lose contacts and files on the phone…)

  146. Olivia. says

    hah thanks so much for your help.
    but im 14 and i dont understand.

    whas M2 and whats backup GDFS and reflash Main and FS?
    haha so sorry, just i dont really understand.

    thankyou :)

    it just wont charge and it flashes 5 times.

  147. Akshay says

    14.. lol dude that’s a lame answer.
    you get your phone replaced from sony ericsson then.
    they will happily give you a new S500i

    if the red light flashes 5 times. then EROM Is dead.

    install usbflash drivers using another SE phone.
    repair phone using this red light tutorial..

    later follow other tutorials at site…

    best for your is to get phone replaced if you don’t like technical stuff.

  148. Olivia. says

    hah it isnt a lame answer!
    but cant i just download setool thing?
    x

  149. Peti says

    14 is a lame answer, I’m 15, and check out the forum thing…
    Though Olivia is a girl name and then it is understandable. xD
    Download it and follow the tutorial…

  150. Olivia. says

    aaaah what forum thing?
    haha i agree, girls arent made for these things.
    do you have msn or something so you can like explain to me:)?

    x

  151. Olivia. says

    thanks:)
    so like what forum thing do i have to download?
    or can i download the setool thing?
    x thankyou your a great help.
    (L)

  152. Olivia. says

    and dude like everytime i download setool it crashes..

  153. Akshay says

    what crashes ?
    setool 2 lite you can download from any where on the internet.. just google search

    here is out download link
    http://seflashing.extra.hu/?mode=dlSoft&name=SeTool2v111.rar&show=fileinfo

    why does it crash ?? :(
    that’s bad.
    windows vista ?
    also how will you use SeTool 2 lite ..
    usb flash drivers are not installed. and to install them you need a phone that is alive.. dead phone won’t do..

    but you try the whole USB Driver installation tutoral…
    but in all cases hold 2+5 instead of holding C ok..?
    in tutorial it says hold C but you hold 2+5 and connect.. here is the usb flash drivers installation.
    http://www.akshayy.com/sonyericsson/tutorials/installing-usb-flash-drivers/

  154. Akshay says

    Olivia i know that you were trying to gooogle search this

    sony ericsson has one red light on the right side?

    and you ended up here again at this site… lol

  155. Olivia. says

    akshay you HAVE to help me! :(
    right.

    the phone is blank. black screen.
    i took out my battery and put it back in.
    then tried to turn my phone on, and it just vibrated once.
    but i put in my charger and it has a red light.
    but then sometimes it flashes 5 times.

    what the hell do i do:(?
    please help..

    thankyo so much for being patient.. xx

  156. Stuart says

    Peti hi still battling with my w810i have flashed main and fs with ones you gave me ok then went back in to customise with cust pack but had a job reconising phone had to connect and dissconect lots of times before it worked . and No i didnt start up phone inbetween the two.
    still not working starts with white screen then goes black and flashes white once or twice and then turns off. do you think i should try the original cda instead of one u supplied me? could this be the problem ?? does not flash red light so erom must be ok ??

  157. Akshay says

    hey stuart… CDA has nothing in it.
    its only to setup languages in phone.. so relax.
    it does not affect phone in anyway.

    try to repair EROM using this tutorial and then go in for flashing again.
    i really really don’t know what’s wrong with your phone.. :(

  158. Peti says

    The same happened to me on a K750@W800. Without any reason, and then I took the memory stick out and… it was that, then it started working again…

  159. Stuart says

    Thanks Akshay will try erom again last time i tried using se tool it didnt want to reconise phone.
    Peti the memory stick was the first thing i removed saw that prob in friends ph but only affected accessing photos etc nothing like this.
    It crashed while i was sending a text which seems more like erom/ hardware problem cant see how software could suddenly be corupted like that. thanks guys easier to work out prob with 3 heads rather than one .

  160. Stuart says

    Akshay this is what happens when i click on unlock repair as per yr erom repair guide

    RESTORATION FILE NOT PRESENT
    “R4EA031_CXC1250316_GENERIC_HN”
    YOU MUST PERFORM FULL FLASHING FOR PATCH UNLOCK

  161. Akshay says

    REST File is not present.
    download firmware and in the REST folder in Setool 2lite folder create a rest file for that firmware using makerest or some program like that given in REST folder.

  162. Stuart says

    I have the rest file here can i just go into xs++ and select it in the main firm box then click flash?? Its not going to overwrite the whole main i just flashed will it????

  163. Akshay says

    no it won’t…!! its ok..!

  164. Peti says

    And reflashing main also fixes the issue…

    Hi guys! I went through top sony and se-nse forums + your brilliant website. And the question is: if the mobile is dead and no red light is blinking – does it mean it’s the hardware problem?
    The situation is: I got a faulty S500 from ebay (clicked at the last moment – didn’t notice it’s faulty. YES, I am BLONDE!). I have some experience with flashing/debranding – I hoped that’s the software issue. However: xs++ does not recognize it (communication error), setool does not recognize it (even with 2+5), kulankendi does not reconize it. Is there anything else I can try???
    And by the way – love this website, your simple and straight forward tutorials helped me with W580 / Z310 / W880 (I’m really unlucky with the mobiles this year).
    Best regards :)

  171. Peti says

    Blonde women usually have silly problems, but this one is tough…
    If 2+5 doesn’t work, then I think nothing will. But I think it might be just that the battery went too low, it was not in use for a long while. If that is the case, then 2+5 should not work all right.
    So first try to charge it somehow in another phone, becuase if the phone is dead, it probably doesn’t charge either, but I don’t know for sure…

  172. Akshay says

    PHONE Is Dead.
    How can a person Install USB drivers with dead phone then ?
    To Install USB drivers you need a Working Phone.

    We can’t really say what’s the problem with phone until you connect your phone after installing USB flash drivers.

    If phone is OK in hardware then it will get detected !

    go for a reflash of Main + FS and then do it once again.
    flash all using 2+5 using SeTool 2 lite.

  175. kiki says

    sorry how do i reflash the main and fs?? thanks

  176. kate5 says

    Dear boys… I charged the battery (actually two batteries – W580 has the same one) for a whole night before trying xs++ and SEtool.
    I believe it is a hardware issue – thanks for the confirmation though :)
    Keep up the good work :)

  177. Peti says

    @kiki: you start xs++, connect, tick flash main, and flash FS, and customize filesystem. Browse the appropriate files there. Use own_custpack method for customizing, download what you need from seflashing.extra.hu

  178. Bashar says

    Hello Akshay
    I enjoy reading you page on sony ericsson flashing…i have recently bought a K550i but have not flashed it yet, i was hoping to do at some point howver..
    Anyways this morning i woke up and when i turned my phone on, it was all white screen…itried to take the battery in and out and only got sum vibrations when it started, it was also vibrating when a call was recieved.
    I have the SE suite installed with all the drivers but when i ran SEUS and followed directions (holding c while plugging it in) nothin happened. and after i download Xss program, it said check connection or unable to make a connection and didnt work….

    What should i do? I am using a different laptop now with no drivers and i am running SEUS to install them, what should i do next to get my phone to work?

    I think updating the firmware should restore it but what do u recommend?

    Thanks

    Bashar

  179. Robert says

    Hi
    I have a k800 that flashes a white screen when I try to turn it on and some times the infrared light blinks. Tried to fix my EROM using your guide and this is the log I got;

    but the problem is my phone is still not working, and I charged the phone for a longtime before flashing it. But when i input the charger the screen goes white so im not sure if it’s even charging the battery. Is there something else I can do? Like flashing the Main and FS?

  180. farhood says

    hi akshay i’ve changed erom chipset on k810i and flashing Main & FS but my phone doesn’t start and blinking white screen .

  181. Peti says

    SEUS changes it to CID 53, bad idea. If it’s new, you have warranty, you better use that.
    It is not likely, that you have dead erom and no red light, but still it would be worth a try to follow this tutorial, if XS++ can’t handle it.
    If SEUS could finish, you already have CID 53, so you can only use JDFlasher to reflash main and FS.

  182. Peti says

    @Robert: use XS++ to reflash main and FS, take out memory stick. Of course only if xs detects it.
    @farhood: can xs++ detect it?

    what’s your problem Buvan
    Its CID53 so you can’t use XS++.. use Jdflasher.
    your phone is working why are you here at the dead phones zone……do you want your phone dead or what ?

  186. Bashar says

    someone please help me

  187. Robert says

    @Peti:
    Thank you very much, worked like a charm after I flashed Custompack aswell :)

  188. Ahsen says

    I am using SE w880i , Some how my phone is dead & Red light is blink quite several times. I checked the battery its ok. But I think so it is something else.

    I figure out tha its a erom issue. so Install xs 3.1
    and downloaded the actual erom , I flash it but massage is showing that its still sending the erom to my phone . I am waiting since 2 hours.

    Can you tell me how much time it will take to flash.

    Ahsen
    dude your phone EROM is good and working
    if EROM was bad XS++ can’t even open the phone port.

    and if EROM is dead… repair with SeTool 2 lite… not XS++.

    ok now recharge battery else where and try.
    if that does not work then Repair EROM using SeTool 2 lite… it will fix it…!! follow this tutorial

  190. Thesen says

    Akshay,

    My problem is exactly the problem “Red Light Blinking, Dead ?” that you have described. However, the SETool I downloaded from your site does not find my phone. So I am stuck at step 5.

    I have the SE V630i.
    Something I noticed when I charged it last night. The light atop the phone remains red. It never goes green.

    Do you have any other suggestions? The phone is completely dead.

    Regards,

    T

  191. Peti says

    It may be just that the DCU-60 cable is overused. It happened to me that I was trying to flash main and couldn’t because of bad cable, try to push it down, and move the connector.

  192. sunny says

    hii…i tried flashing w700i…i thought everything is going in rightway….but after flashing and disconnected my fone frm XS++ v3.0beta……my fone is not turning on….its dead?…..

  193. sunny says

    not even red light blinking frm infrared……..

  194. byron says

    heres one for the people who know what they are doing…iv tryd flashing the GDFS back, main, FS and the EROM using KKClient…the red light still flashes….

    and fone still doesnt wana start….

    for those of you that know setool 1.11 this is what i got when i tried to repair the EROM or click identify…

    @sunny: I think you had ssw files but no rest files, so the restoration after FSX wasn’t done. It happens on DB2010… Just reflash Main.
    @byron: can you backup GDFS of the phone now?

  196. sunny says

    how to reflash main plzz help me in detail

  197. Peti says

    You download the phone’s main from topse.ru/ mobilefree.ru/ seflashing.extra.hu/ seusers.com… Then unpack the archive to have a bin or mbn file.
    Open XS++, Connect. Tick Flash main, browse the file. Click Flash. Wait.

    setool doesnt let me do anything anymore…and xs++ just reads my baseband ID and Protocal version….cant access any of the other settings on xs++

    GDFS was backedup tho….tryed restor but doesnt work

    setool doesnt let me read GDFS either

  202. Peti says

    @sunny: use google translator. besides, seflashing.extra.hu is my place, english.
    @byron: are you using 2+5? :O

  203. byron says

    yes

  204. byron says

    thats the only way my phone can connect to anything, if i use 2+5….if i use “C” nothing happens, doents read the phone at all

  205. Peti says

    I have a strong feeling that it is now dead. But! it may be the battery. (Worth checking before throwing it away.) Also Akshay may know something.

  206. stacey says

    Hi i have a W580 and tried to flash it but since then i have a red light flash on about 4 times a a bit of a vibration but it does not turn on i have tried flashing it about 6 times now with setool lite, XS++ and jdflasher. They all find my phone with just holding c and they all find the EROM do you have any suggestions please. Thank you for taking time to read

  207. Peti says

    First try this tutorial. Second, check the battery, red light also means low batt. Third do you have a gdfs backup?

  208. stacey says

    i have tried the battery, tried the tutorial and tried the gdfs backup i created but still nothing but the red light

  209. Akshay says

    Satcey.. leave it then…

    Try to Repair the phone holding 2+5 ONLY using SeTool 2 lite…
    but first of all you need to have a full battery to use SeTool 2 lite.

    Recharge your battery using your FRIENDS phone.
    If Red Light Blinks on and on then it means dead EROM.
    That means phone is permanently damaged.. mean physically damaged EROM !
    IF something is physically damaged replace it. Replace EROM = Replace PHONE.

    Get phone replaced with a new phone. SE will replace your phone.

  210. Peti says

    Why would they replace it? It had been flashed, means no warranty…

  211. stacey says

    thanks for your help i will try with se

  212. John says

    Hi i was using selite to fix problem with flashing red lights. Eventually i got it to work that my phone plays all souns like ringing tones and message….. But the problem is i have a white screen and i can see anything also when i try to charge it i get a red light and white screen on all the time. Any help would be great. Great site :-D

  213. Akshay says

    Jhon. That is terribly bad news.
    Your battery is damaged or phone EROM is physically damaged/burnt/broken etc.
    hope its the battery.
    See what’s up with the phone and accordingly replace.

  214. Akshay says

    Peti. Warranty is valid as long as the service guy does not know.
    when he comes to know then its up to him to cancel the warranty.

  215. Peti says

    So I just flash K550 R8 and restore old gdfs backup and say I used seus… :D Nice.

  216. Daisy says

    hey…..my w580i is dead with red flashing light…i have no idea what to do..its fully charged…please help…i have no idea about all the technical terms explained above :s

  217. Peti says

    Read the tutorial once more and follow it. Get SeTool 2 Lite from seflashing.extra.hu.

  218. Daisy says

    thanks…ill try it now :D

  219. Daisy says

    hey..i tried the tutorial and i couldn’t do it :(…if my phones under warranty will the shop i bought it from be able to fix it for me? :D

  220. Daisy says

    sorry to be a pain..but i have one more question …whats an EROM?

    hey EROM is Erasable Read Only Memory.

    Now Realizing that almost 99.99% of the people in world have not studied Introductory Computer Science in Junior Primary School. I thought computer course was famous…!! Sorry all then.

    my computer does not recognize the phone at all. the screen does not appear. Please help me or send me an email

    hello akshay

    well i tried chargin my phone because battery was diein (but it wasnt completly dead) and i couldnt find reg wall charger so i decided to use my usb cable and hook up to my laptop…well when i connected it and closed out the boxes on comp and it started chargin all of a sudden screen went black but the buttons were still lit…i tried pressing buttons to see if phone would work but nothing was happening than i prob did something really stupid and took the usb cable off of the phone. after that screen was black and buttons still lit so i took the battery out and put it back in and thats when the red lite showed up. but it only blinks once and then nothing…please help if you can!! thank you

  225. kimmus says

    actually it does blink 5x sorry…also i tried hookin up phone to usb cable to comp again and nothing appears whatsoever on comp (asking for hook up of hardware etc) also tried holding down the c button and nothing…hope this makes sense and hope to hear from you soon…thank you!

  226. Peti says

    @nauman: Get SeTool2 lite from our download server, seflashing.extra.hu
    Then follow this tutorial, though it would be better for you to give it to a SE service center, if you have warranty. (You’ll lose it once you flashed.)
    Sent in mail, too.
    @kimnus: follow this tutorial.

  227. Akshay says

    kimmus…. your is clearly dead battery.
    there is absoultey no power supply to phone. how can you expect phone to start…

    phone won’t connect also. only if there is power in phone then only it can connect man !!

    nauman … install usb drivers properly using some one elses phone. and if that phone connects to XS++ or SeTool 2 lite. Then USB is all ok
    then recharge your battery using YOUR FRIENDS phone and repair the EROM.

  228. kimmus says

    thanks ill try chargin it…but i know i had battery power before i started chargin on the comp…i had about 4th battery life it said and battery level wasnt depleted…so if its not the battery charge than what could it be? thanks!

  229. Mustafa says

    Wohhaaaaa, yehooow, it is worked on my brothers K610i locked with RED BLINKING LED.

  233. Nitin says

    How do I edit my previous post?

  234. Akshay says

    well in new wordpress even admins can’t edit comments
    try again
    and try reflashing main and fs and cda in this mode.
    that is 2+5 mode.

  235. Nitin says

    I’m new to this so I apologize but can you provide me detailed step-by-step instructions on how to flash the main, fs, and cda?

  236. Alvin says

    Hi Akshay,

    I’ve read through all of these comments several times and also tried just about everything I could find on Google.

    I have a W580i originally from ATT. I debranded using SEtool2 lite, flashing the following files:

    W580_CDA102568_7_R8A_GENERIC_C_ASIA.zip
    W580_R8BA024_FS_C_ASIA_RED52.fbn
    W580_R8BA024_MAIN_GENERIC_LA_RED52.mbn

    Then I used FAR Manager with SEPF plugin to copy some theme files into the phone.

    Everything was working fine for the entire first day. At night, the low battery alert came on, so I switched off my phone and then plugged it into the charger.

    When I checked later, the phone would not power on (blinking red lights). Pushing C and connecting via USB didn’t work for SEtool2, XS++, nor FAR manager.

    Luckily I tried holding 2+5 and it was detected by SEtool2. I tried reflashing the same three files (mentioned above), but it’s always ended with the infamous “CSloader refused to start GDFS services,error is:29″ error after the flashing is finished.

    ——

    I’ve tried XS++ using 2+5, which only goes as far as:

    Baseband ID: 9900
    Protocol Version: 3.1

    and “Port opened ok!” in the bottom left corner of the window. Nothing else occurs after that.

    —–

    I’ve tried FAR Manager with SEPF plugin again, using 2+5, which actually now shows the entire file tree (before it was missing files). The files are probably back because I just did another flash with SEtool2 lite (three files mentioned above).

    —–

    I’ve tried every single solution I could get my hands on but to no avail. When I remove and then replace my battery, pushing the power button once will make the red LED blink once, pushing it a second time will make it blink five times.

    I’ve also read that if there is no solution and if I were to send this into a service shop or to AT&T, I should write GDFS using an MP3 or junk file in order to corrupt the flash unit (so techs won’t find out about debranding).

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Please let me know if you require any additional information. Thanks.

  237. GeraldRD says

    Hi, I’d try flahs using 2+5, but SETOOL, XS++, Far, don’t read it. I has wrotten a GDFS from other W200 in my phone. Please. HELP!!!!!!

  238. Peti says

    @Akshay: wrong. You can edit post, if I can… click the user’s name in comments section….
    @Nitin: read the k550@w610 tutorial.

  239. Peti says

    @Alvin: what a long post. Follow this tutorial to fix your erom. I wouldn’t mess with GDFS if I were you.

  240. Alvin says

    Thanks for the reply Peti.
    I tried this tutorial at least five times already, and just tried it once more. The guy’s reasoning for messing up the GDFS was to create WSOD so techs won’t research it further. If I don’t corrupt it, I would think they’d instantly void my warranty due to debranding…

    I’ve also tried SEtool lite 1.10 with “Bypass DB2020 security”, but it seems to infinitely loop after “Processing part3….”

    EROM repair: I tried KulanKendi client, this tutorial, and WotanClient. KK didn’t seem to do a thing, as it finished in 0 seconds. Wotan won’t let me run it without a proper login.

    This tutorial sounds like it’s worked for everyone else, but it hasn’t worked for me. Is everyone else restoring their old GDFS’s? because I didn’t back mine up.

  241. Akshay says

    don’t worry your warranty is valid ! because if phone does not start then they will never know it.

    Yes everyone restores their own gdfs from their own phone.

    did you write a alien gdfs by any chance ??
    you can try repairing your phone using this tutorial

    all the best.

  242. Alvin says

    Akshay, thanks for the prompt response.

    I tried that GDFS fixing tutorial, but I get the “CSloader refused to start GDFS services,error is:29? error when trying to read GDFS in SEtool2 lite.

    I have one last idea to try before I send it in, but would like to run it by you since you’re far more experienced.

    One thing I haven’t tried is updating with SEUS (SE Update Service) using 2+5 (http://myforum.lasyk.net/showthread.php?t=38134). All the debranding threads I’ve read, say don’t update through the update service because my CID52 will turn into CID53, which means more trouble. But then again I’d rather have anything better than a brick right now.

    I really admire you guys for helping all of us free of charge. It is very much appreciated.

  243. Akshay says

    no idea. then. but don’t try reading gdfs.
    just directly goto write script. execute the gdfs read script to read security units.

    i hope you did not do that writing of junk file to to gdfs .. in that case i think all the gdfs area is gone. and no way to repair that phone then.

    debranding they will never get to know… so chill. because if red light blinks they just throw your phone in dustbin and send you new one.

  244. Alvin says

    Hi Akshay, bad news.

    I tried skipping directly to the “Write SCRIPT” command using the given code (txt file) in that tutorial, but I’m still getting the “CSloader refused to start GDFS services,error is:29″ error message.

    No, I didn’t write the junk file to the GDFS.

    The last solution I can think of is to try using SEUS, but I’ve read your other tutorial mentioning that SEUS will change me to CID53 (but can still be debranded/flashed with jdflasher?).
    http://myforum.lasyk.net/showthread.php?t=38134

    Any last suggestions?

  245. Akshay says

    hmm ok try that…..!! no other options.

  246. yogesh says

    hey akshay i tried to flash my friends w550i. But ultimately failed. Now only white light comes when i switch on my phone. Pls help fast. I need an online chat now.

  247. Akshay says

    YOGESH
    well that sucks
    for flashing w550 you need XS++ 2.2 actually.
    its a exception.

    now just reflash main and fs and cda with XS++ 2.2 that phone will be ok
    sorry man tomorrow i have LAB EXAM. June 6th Morning…………

  248. yogesh says

    thanks man. u really helped me out.

  249. Akshay says

    Well then if SeTool 2 lite can’t repair it then even Woton will fail.

    Now does the red light still blink ‘?
    if red light is not blinking now and also if the phone connects to XS++ in holding C mode then reflash it and it will start.

  250. kayleigh says

    i dont understand and im desperate for help!
    when i hold down the on button on my w810i the white screen will just appear, also when i plug it into the charger the infrared port flashes, i dont understand what SeTool2 lite 1.11 is and how you get it, would this maybe solve my problem? please help!

  251. Akshay says

    hmmm … just rechage battery first.
    some how do it.. or try to start phone with your friend’s w810 battery.

    you should reinsert battery first.
    and you should also have usb flash drivers installed.. which you can’t do with a dead phone…

  252. kayleigh says

    hiya, ive recharged the battery but its still not working :( dya think its dead for good, i mean it just happened randomly ? :s

  253. kayleigh says

    not sure if the comment worked, i tried charging it didnt work, just when i hold down the on button screen is white, does it sound like its dead for good? :S i mean it just happened randomly

  254. Akshay says

    first of all you have installed USB flash drivers in your computer ??
    http://www.akshayy.com/sonyericsson/tutorials/installing-usb-flash-drivers/

    you can’t install usb flash drivers with a dead phone. use some other sony ericsson phone.

    then after installing connect phone holding C to XS++ or Start SeTool 2 lite and click IDENTIFY button and then reinsert battery and connect phone to datacable holding C.
    if it connects. then just reflash your phone using XS++
    also try to connect phone holding C to XS++ and see what it says. and copy paste that here.

    if its not connecting completely in holding C mode. then connect phone to SeTool 2 lite in 2+5 mode and repair.

    If all this does not work then Its not a SOFTWARE problem. Its a hardware problem. In which case we are sorry we can’t help you replace your EROM or dead parts of your phone.

    But its mostly that you are not doing things properly.. please try again carefully before you decide that your phone is really dead .

  255. kayleigh says

    where do i get xs++ or the other one?
    when i plug it in holding c nothing comes up to recognise the hardware?

  256. Akshay says

    Kayleigh why don’t you read what is said carefuly
    i said you need other Sony Ericsson phone first to insall USB flash drivers.

  257. Akshay says

    then repair phone with SeTool 2 lite if you are lucky all will go well

  258. kayleigh says

    I have read it carefully and i have done as it says. ok.

  259. abhay says

    Hi akshayy,

    CS Loader Refused to start service.

    Does XS++ detect your phone ?
    If it does then Reflash your phone.
    then all will go right.

    Flash the phone with SeTool 2 lite.
    Connect holding 2+5
    but use this guide and always connect holding 2+5 as i said instead of C.

    if you mean when i plug the phone in and this appears on xs++ (Baseband ID: 9900

    is that whats suppose to come up?! also on that tutorial you gave me i followed the steps other than this step….(After that klick “Add” and add MAIN and FS Flashfile according to your phone model and CID Version)

    if i didnt follow this step would it not flash properly?

  267. Akshay says

    ok good only your EROM was gone if XS++ says only baseband and platform.
    reapair EROM and flash the phone with SeTool 2 lite.
    now reflash phone. using XS++ or SeTool 2 lite in 2+5 mode.

  268. Paul says

    Hi Akshay, I need some help please.
    My K800 was gone for nothing since last week. I just turned its alarm on when I was in a train, and suddenly, it turned off, and never come back… The only thing it reacts is red blinking.
    I’ve tried this tutorial (provided a full battery and USB flash driver installed), but SeTool 2 lite didn’t recognise my phone. I also tried with KulanKendiClient but it didn’t work either.
    What’s your suggestion that I could do now?
    Many thanks,
    and have a nice week-end.

  269. Peti says

    Does XS++/SeTool2 recognize it with full battery? If not, (and drivers installed ok, and full battery) it is probably a hardware problem so better take it to a SE service center, I think.
    Have you ever flashed it before? When it was working? If you haven’t then your drivers are likely not installed properly. Use a working phone to install them.

  270. Paul says

    Hi Peti, thanks for your respond.
    In fact, I used another working K800 to install the driver. And now, if I connect that phone (not mine) to the computer, it’s automatically recognised as if a normal USB. Does that mean that the driver was successfully installed?
    And I think it’s quite strange to let it go like that, am I right? I didn’t drop it down or sth, why it stopped working in the first place? Or it’s just kind of normal thing with SE phone?
    Thanks again,

  271. Akshay says

    PAUL.
    Connect that WORKING k800 to XS++
    Or Start SeTool 2 lite and Click Identify and connect working k800 holding C.

    If XS++ or SeTool 2 lite Catch the phone then USB Flash drivers are installed.

    If phone connects as Regular USB device then drivers are not installed properly.

  272. Paul says

    Hi Akshay,
    XS++ and SeTool 2 lite did recognise the working phone. But it’s still no hope with the dead one. What should I do now? And I don’t think the SE service center is a good idea because it’s too old for that :-(
    Thanks,

  273. Peti says

    Does SeTool2 detect it with 2+5? And is the battery fully charged? If this doesn’t work then… maybe the fastport of the phone is damaged. Some hardware issue.

  274. Paul says

    No, SeTool2 doesn’t detect even I press 2+5 for almost 6,7 minutes. (It thought that I should press long time because even with a working phone, it took 90sec to identify the phone while pressing C button). So you mean, there is nothing I can do now?

    By the way, while searching with google, I come up with another site, where they told that for the last resort: open the phone, take out the internal battery, reinsert it. Then try again with SeTool, or Kulan client. I cannot open it for now because I don’t have a right tool to open it. But does it really work? Is there anyone who did try it once?

    Many thanks,

  275. Sunny says

    Hey Akshay,
    Im having the same problem as Alvin did before. I also have a w580i. But i dont get any flashing lights, the phone is just completely dead. I tried reflashing it with XS++ and SE but it gets stuck. It only goes up to like 100/460 blocks and then it either says error verifying blocks or just freezez. I reflashed the EROM but it still wouldn’t power on. PLEASE HELP!

  276. Peti says

    @Paul: never heard of it, but it may be worth a try, what can you lose… ;)
    @Sunny: it seems that some flash chips are damaged. If battery is ok and it ALWAYS stops at 100. Still, try JDFlasher.

  277. Sunny says

    Its not always 100. Sometimes it only goes up to like 50. Ill still try JDflasher. But what do i do if flash chips are damaged?

  278. Sunny says

    I tried with JDFlasher but it got stuck at 86/460. What should I do now?

  279. Peti says

    If your battery is full and the cable connects perfectly (!!) then it must be a hardware problem, you can only take it to a service center.

  280. Sunny says

    Could it be just the battery that’s dead? I’ll try with a new battery. Thanks for ur help

  281. Peti says

    Yeah, of course it could. And also try flashing with the new battery before giving up. ;)

  282. Sunny says

    Ill give that a shot. THANKS

  283. Veronica says

    Hi Askshay! I’ve read through all these and I am having the same problem accept I haven’t flashed my phone or anything… It was working one minute and I got on a plane (didn’t turn it off) and when I got off the plane I was getting the red blinking light and haven’t been able to turn it on since. I put my phone to charge a full 24 hours and nothing … Because I charged it, I tried to identify it with se2lite and although it read it for like a second it disconnected really quick. Is it possible that the battery is soooo low that the charging startup doesn’t have enough power to load?

  286. Akshay says

    Veronica.
    First point. How Did you Install USB Flash Drivers ?
    If your phone is not working you need another working sony ericsson to install usb flash drivers.

    Red Light blinks most of the times due to power supply fail. Try to use your phone with a new battery.

    If Power Circuit and battery is alright then SeTool 2 lite Detects the phone easily.

    You get a 2nd SE phone. Click Identify button in SeTool 2 lite and then Connect phone holding C. That will tell if your USB drivers are installed or not.

    Then Recharge the dead phone’s battery and if necessary repair the phone with SeTool 2.

    Last my name is not askshay, its AKshay. :)

  287. Akshay says

    Oon..!

    Reflash back to k800 and start phone. Also is your EROM also dead ?

    And one more thing.
    Write back original GDFS .
    I hope you have made a backup of your GDFS.
    Don’t write some ones gdfs. only your k800 gdfs will work.
    http://www.akshayy.com/sonyericsson/tutorials/restoring-a-gdfs/

  288. Veronica says

    Hi Akshay! Blame my fat fingers LOL! I did what you said and it identifies the working phone fine but when I try to repair the red blinking one (i’m calling it blinky now) it says something about the CS loader refusing to start and that this error is fatal.. I read on the thread and you told someone to reflash their phone if it is detected by XS++… I did connect using 2+5 but it says “did not receive 0x5a, Continuing…” and seems to hang up there… on the bottom it says port open ok though…

    Any advice would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks in advance

  289. Peti says

    XS++ can’t fix this thing. Only SeTool2lt is useful now. I think you should keep trying it for a while. Now is your battery charged?

  290. Veronica says

    Yes the battery was charged in the working phone until it was full.

    What should I be doing in SE tool2lt? Should I flash the phone? Which file do I flash it with?

    When I try to Identify the phone it gives me the following just in case:

    ok. redlight also blinks and CS loaders also won’t start.
    that’s a double problem.

    first time we are seeing something like this.
    which phone ??

    i guess we can’t help you.
    things will really get complicated now if you try to follow our instructions …
    better visit a service center.
    they will have service cable, which can catch dead phones easily and flash them.
    at home you don’t have a service cable,, so repair also becomes tough and complicated and risky.

  293. Veronica says

    It’s a W580i. Wow leave it to my phone to be the dud! It’s so weird one minute it was working and the other not…. Do you think the SE Updater would work?

  294. Jekis says

    Hi I have the same Problem I was patching my phone and forgot to check the box that says bybas security… and It couldn’t start afterwards , the screen was flashing.. after that I tried to restore the GDFS and downlaoded one form topse.ru it was for my phone(w880) and now It doesn’t start, the red light is on just like here in this tutorial and I can’t do anything.. I have checked the battery is fine it’s almost full… I’ve tried your tutorial, am doing it now but when I click unlock /repair and connect the phone it doesn’t see my phone, does it have to see it or it flashes my EROm , I’m gonna leave this til morning but would like to know if I’m on the right track..

    Thanks in advance…

  296. Akshay says

    Great !! w580 !!
    Did you know something ?

    Most of the w580 first batch sold have defective EROM. Sony Ericsson has replaced many many w580 !! Its well known that the w580 has weak EROM.

    you can try SE Updater.

  297. Akshay says

    Jekis. NO solution dude.
    you wrote back alien gdfs. so your phone now can’t be repaired.
    you should always write your own gdfs.

  298. Akshay says

    Rodrigo. your phone is not starting at all.
    nothing can be done with free software.
    you will need recovery tools.

  299. mufaddal says

    my fones dead but the red light doesnt blink at all, the battery was 50% wen my phone suddenly switched off

  300. Akshay says

    mufaddal. so what’s the deal with the phone.
    is it battery that failed your or the EROM.
    Install USB drivers and try to flash erom. may be you are luck and its the EROM.

    if its battery circuit we are sorry. its hardware fault. better take help of service people.

  301. Peti says

    No red light. Reflashing all might help.

  302. mufaddal says

    yea i went to the repair guy he told we will do one last try if it doesnt work, then the IC is dead may i know wats the ic

  303. Peti says

    Try wikipedia first. :D
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

  304. jawed says

    i read all threats but couldnt find the solution

  305. Akshay says

    hmmmmm ?? means ??

  306. oon says

    well..
    it doesn’t help either..
    i have write my gdfs, an restoring it using setool lite..
    but it still white screen blinking…
    writing gdfs, an reflashing is succesfull..
    but didn’t work….

  307. Peti says

    Which firmware did you flash on? K800 main?
    Do you have memory stick IN the phone?
    When did you make the gdfs backup?

  308. chris says

    i have a w850i i pluged it in the to my pc, i have 5 red lights flashin wen i turn it on, buh it doesnt show up on my pc, how do i fix this

  309. schyzco says

    hi akshay… mine’s a w580i. got the red blinking light…

    thing is, i’m completely new to this whole thing. i’ve downloaded the usb flash drivers and setool lite… problem is, i’m the only one around here with an se phone. what do i do???

  310. stacey says

    Hi just wanted to say thanks for the help about 4 weeks ago. Sent the Phone back to SE and they said something inside has blown they are waiting for a part and it will be returned to me free of charge. Thanks

  311. prabhakaran says

    I followed the above steps for my w580i Red Led Blinks but handset is getting flashing it showing fatal error

  312. Akshay says

    Stacey
    its a well know fact that w580 has a low quality EROM, every now and then a w580 is damaged.

    prahakran.
    just try to fix it this way.. if it works then good. else get it replaced.

    chris
    your phone EROM is dead as said. you can’t connect the phone to PC wihtout USB flash drivers.
    install USB Flash drivers using your friends phone and then connect phone holding 2+5 and repair the EROM.

  313. Akshay says

    schyzco
    yes yes we have many w580 with dead EROM..
    i have said it many times…
    w580 has a weak and low quality EROM chip… that’s why

    Sony Ericsson Replaces w580 for free…basically the entire main chip in the phone is replaced…

    you try to repair .. of course you need some other sony ericsson phone to install usb drivers..
    if repair does not work.. send it to sony ericsson service center.
    they will replace for free.

  314. chris says

    how do i install those drivers from the phone ?

  315. chris says

    could u post a video, screenshot

  316. Peti says

    A tutorial, search for “USB flash drivers”.

  317. Akshay says

    yeah there is video tutorial for that.
    link to usb flash driver install tutorial is given in this page itself.

  318. chris says

    im pressing c and nothing happening

  319. Sunny says

    hey i got a new battery for my phone but it still never worked. then i took it in to a repair shop and they said the phone is dead and can’t be fixed. Im now following one of ur posts on how to restore a GDFS. Ive done everything as far as writing script and saving the file. Now I need a working GDS for 580i. Can someone plz tell me where I can get that from or would be so kind to share one with me.

  320. Akshay says

    chris.. did you re insert battery…..??
    god know what’s wrong.. this is the 1st step besides.
    sunny..
    what happened to your w580i ?
    if you have warranty then get it replaced from sony ericsson.
    they will replace it for sure.

    and how is the phone dead byw ?? how exactly did it ide ?
    red light blinking by any chance ?

  321. Sunny says

    THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY MUCH!!!my phones finally working after like 2 weaks!!! I tried about a hundred things and even took it to a repair center. I had the phone on charging then I took it off and immediately connected to setool and i was able to flash the main and fs. So I guess the problem was just the battery but I did try another battery and it never worked. Im just happy that it worked now. Thanks for all your and Peti’s help earlier though.

  322. romc says

    hm.. tried.. doesnt work.. when i try to charge the battery i get the same red blinking light like when i try to turn it on.. btw.. model is k610i..

  326. romc says

    one thing that you should know too… if i hold C and connect phone… nothing happens… it only works with 2+5…

  327. Akshay says

    chris..
    if red light is blinking.. let me remind you, your phone is dead. it can’t be connected holding C.
    You need a working sony ericsson phone to install USB Flash drivers into your computer.
    then you can repair the dead phone using setool 2 after connecting it in 2+5.
    when you hold 2+5 and connect the USB cable powers up the phone.. Usually power comes from Battery.. but not when 2+5 connection.

  328. Akshay says

    ROMC.
    your EROM is fine.

    some other component in the phone is damaged.
    if only EROM was damaged then it can powered up by usb cable and reflashed…
    try a last attempt to update phone with SEUS.

    or ask a sony service center to reflash phone with service cable.

  329. romc says

    reflash… hah … im gonna try that seus or just try to flash it to w660:)

    that’s the setool 2 log and its that way only.

    full version can do a lot more though.
    man chris i don’t really know.. how to fix your phone at home.
    you need a service center help with professional software and service cable…
    nothing seems to work for you….

    this Red light blinks in many cases even when EROM connection of phone fails due to hardware damages.

  334. chris says

    is there any way else i can fix dis

    Hi Akshay,

    My phone w580i is not showing anything on screen. Initially it was vibrating whenever I try to powerup. I tried to follow your tutorial. I installed USB drivers. Now when I used setoollite F(with SIM and 512 M2 card still in) it changed to red light blinking status. I am doing following sequence.

    1. Start setool application on computer.
    2. click unlock/repair button.
    3. while pressing “c” button of w580i I connect phone cable to USB port as shown in setool application.
    4. Then when setool is done repair. I press key 2 and key 5 with cable still connected to computer.

    Nothing happens, please see following log of my latest attempt.

    Hi i have k610i and he cant turn on red light blink every time i try it turn on or charge battery i tried over xs++ ,setool2,davinci,wotanclient. when i press c it nothing happen but when i press 2+5 every program find it and load somthing but after two,three secund says faild plizz help … Thnx.

  342. Peti says

    Maybe your battery is low and the EROM is gone. Try to ask for a working battery from a friend.
    Also it is possible that the cable or the connector on the phone is damaged, did it happen before that you couldn’t connect for long?

    And one more phone saved… Thanks a lot!!

  347. alex says

    i also have cid53 and am waiting for a tool since i dont really think there is a nearby service center in the united states

  348. Peti says

    For CID 53 the tool is JDFlasher, but it can’t fix dead eroms and so.

  349. yujin says

    my phone started blinking 5 times and it doesnt turn on now, ung using k800 cid53 can setool lite repair this? and it is possible to charge my phone if its low battery?coz i think before it happens i thinks it was below 10%thanks

  350. Peti says

    The red light sometimes means low battery, try charging.
    SeTool 2 Lite won’t fix a CID 53 phone. So if it is EROM prob, you must take it to a service center…

  351. uchiyaz says

    i have a w580i and its dead its blinking like 6x a think can you tell me how to fix my phone co’z its dead and a can’t use it anymore.. pls… help me…

  355. ANKIT says

    hey akshay,i have a w880i ,yesterday it turned off while charging,(after i took out the battery when it hung up).when i tried 2 switch it on,red light blinked inside the ‘c’ button….
    i tried se tool lite1.1,it didnt even detect the phone,itried kulankendi client it too was a failure….

    now i took it to the service cente ,he told me the data was corrupt and he needs 2 buy something 4rom SE ,and demanded Rs.850…..

    do u think it is ok??
    please reply(if possible on my mail too)

    thanx..

  356. Peti says

    If SeTool2 Lite can’t detect it after reinserting battery and while holding 2 and 5, it’s not really possible for you to fix it at home. But you can try other fixers for lower prices.

  357. Diptangshu says

    Akshay, I have a W810i, yesterday I changed my SIM for a contact no and again inserted my own SIM. After that I am unable to start my phone, its red light is blinking around 12 times and then goes off, if I press the power button again the blinking repeats again. Blinking rate is little high thats why Im not sure about blinking number, its around 12 times. Pls suggest what to do.

  358. Diptangshu says

    If you also reply via email it will be easier to access for me. thanks

  359. Peti says

    Red light is also a sign of low battery, first try to charge it. If it won’t fix it, you try this tutorial, it will fix EROM problems. If still not working, reflash main and fs.

  360. Ryan says

    Hey, soz about where this comment is but my school blocked the flashing tutorial for the s500 to w580. can any one give me a vid tutorial cos i did it exactly as it was set out and all that happened was i got the walkman 2 and step counter that is useless any way

    PLEASE help!

  361. Peti says

    What else do you want? :o W580 has those, that means the crossflashing WAS successful.

  362. Carlo says

    i’ve fullt charged my battery, but still nothing happens. do you thinkg the hardware’s already dead? what happen to my k610i was, it fell on the ground hard. then hang, i reinsert the battery then now i can’t turn it on. when i press the power button it will only blink the red light, when i press it again it will blink i think 5 times.

  363. Arto_otrA says

    Hey I have 2 k790a phones. One works perfectly, meaning I always have a charged battery… the other one though I’m having problems with. First of all it doesn’t turn on at all, doesn’t vibrate, doesn’t blink red. It cannot connect using “C” in setool2lite or xs++ (both programs show as if I didn’t even attempt to plug a phone it) But using the “2+5″ method, setool gives the first few messages and then says “BOOTROM MODE DETECTED” and then does nothing else… it doesn’t bring up any of the phones information.. no imei, no info on whether or not its RED; Brown etc… no firmware info, nothing nadda ziltch. Trying to do anything (flashing, identifying, reading gdfs) results in the same fashion. So is there ANYTHING that can be done to bring this phoen back from the dead?
    p.s. I love the site… its been a great help for my other k790a which I unlocked and debranded successfully.

  364. Peti says

    @Carlo: yes, that can only mean that. Some circuit insite broke. You mean you have installed USB flash drivers with a working phone and can’t connect like this, right?
    @Arto: it seems you can’t fix it at home. Maybe a service center can do it, with pro tools.

  365. Hecka says

    Is there anyway to repair a dead EROM on a CID 53 phone?

  366. Peti says

    No, not yet. Only professional (BOX) tools can do it. Red light blinking, huh? :(

  367. Hecka says

    Yeah… red blinking light. How sad.

  368. Peti says

    Try inserting a fully charged battery first. If still not ok, take it to a service center.

  369. aries says

    my phone turned off and refuses to turn back on. I took it to the att store but the guy didn’t know what was wrong. When I attempt to turn it on it blinks red on the side. CAN ANYBODY TELL ME WHATS WRONG WITH IT??!!???!?!??!?!?

  370. Peti says

    Don’t you try this tutorial then?

  371. George says

    Thank you very much! I had a dead K610i which came back to life thanks to this tutorial. I am in debt to you!

  372. richard says

    hi i think i had an erom prob. cuz my phone was dead with the red light blinking an it was fixed using setool2 lite 1.11. bu now the phone wont charge when i plug it in it says charging non standard battery its a k790a what do i do someone please help me my batt is dyin

  373. Peti says

    Is the phone working? Can you start it and make calls? If so, probably damaged battery. I heard a story that a guy had his phone on the charger and the battery just blew up. Anyway, first try reflashing main and fs. If the battery still isn’t ok, buy a new one.

  374. richard says

    the batt is ok i charge it in my friends phone an it works fine after it is charged. its not the batt or the charger they both work. do u no anything about a batt calibration? i read on a forum they had the same prob but i have no clue what to do or where to find 1

  375. richard says

    i flashed it over already using xs++ an it works fine just wont charge only comes up with that stupid message charging non standard battery

  376. Peti says

    No clue, if the battery is fine, then maybe some prob in the GDFS, not fixable.

  377. Peti says

    I mean not at home. Service center should help.

  378. richard says

    so why can’t i fix it. what does GDFS stand for

  379. richard says

    does any one know what a battery calibration isan where to get 1

  380. Peti says

    I don’t know if that even exists.

  381. Ryan says

    Hey now that i finished my S500 project i tried to revive my dead K800 with selite but it wont connect, battery is 100% charged cos used friends K800 and held 2+5 while connecting but still didnt work.

    Any Ideas?

  382. Joel says

    Hi, my w880i has just stopped turning on. i try to charge it and a funny buzz noise keeps repeating out of the speaker every second. ive left it for half hour and its still doing it with no charge in the phone whatsoever. someone please help.

  383. Peti says

    Ryan: Connected and then what?
    @Joel: Install USB flash drivers and SeTool 2 Lite. Try to connect with C button. If you can, reflash main and fs. If can’t, connect with 2+5. Then Unlock/Repair — fix erom. If you can’t… :?

  384. richard says

    what woul the service center do with my phone that i can’t do my self?

    Hi,
    I seem to have the red blinking light issue as well. When i use SEtools to repair the EROM, i get the Restoration File Not present Error. Somebody else had posted the same issue above but i didn’t quite understand your reply. I tried running the exe in the make_rest folder but that seems to do nothing.

    Oh GOD !! This Red Light which is sign if serious issues is a tough one to fix !!
    I only this way to fix it. Other methods need SeTool 2 full which is paid software.

    and no need for those 4in1 drivers for our use.
    You can get those themes in topse.ru and other forums like se-nse.

    ……………..
    brocas, what’s the problem ?? your EROM Is gone again… setool 2 lite can’t fix it ?? if phone has warranty then get it repaired from SE.
    ……….
    Rohit !!! you should create restore file using your main and fs firmwares with help of make_rest.exe

    did you install usb flash drivers ????

    Hey aksh

  415. Stefan says

    Hey guys, I hope someone can help me with this. My w580i that isn’t even a month old had been working perfectly after flashing, changing main, fs unlocking, and adding flash themes. More than a week has passed since I last flashed it. Last night, I left it connected to the charger, and this morning when I was going to use it, it was off. I tried turning it on and no luck. I tried taking out the battery and reinserting, and turning it on, it vibrated while I had the power button pressed. I tried this more times and the same thing happened. I tried removing the SIM and reinserting, pressed the power button, and it vibrated until I removed the battery. Now it doesn’t do anything. I tried connecting to SE Tool Lite with 2 and 5 pressed, but no luck. What should I do?
    Thanks in advance.

  419. Akshay says

    Noel
    First flash your phone with XS++ or with SETool 2 lite.

    To flash the main just add the main firmware mbn in the big box and click flash, in setool 2 lite. same way flash FS and then attempt to recover.

    CSloader refused to start GDFS services,error is:29
    That means your FS needs flashing. So flash main and fs too via 2+5 ! SeTool 2 lite.

  420. Noel says

    Hi Akshay, thanks for the help. But i am having trouble finding the right link to download the correct mbn file for my phone. I have W580i and haven’t been able to find an appropriate link. If you have a link or something it would be great. I don’t want to install the wrong firm ware by mistake. :(

  421. rushier says

    hey akshay,
    I have a w580i with this blinking red light problem.
    I understand all your instructions but I’m worried that sony will detect that I modified my phone.

    I already reported my phone and they are sending me a new one. However I am trying to get some pictures off the phone before I return it. So will repairing the EROM via SeTool2 lite cause any problems with warranty? Will they say that I modified my phone and charge me?

    Btw – I have never flashed / debranded my phone so I’m just wondering if this will cause any problems?

    Thanks – appreciate it

  422. Noel says

    Hi Akshay,

    I flashed my phone with SETOOL and installed the new firm ware and FS.

    When you said recover, do you mean i click the recovery button or do i click the Repair button. Because when i attempted to repair my phone i got the same error 29.
    So am a lil confused right now as to what am supposed to do.

  426. Vanee says

    Hey Akshay,
    i have a k800i and i followed each direction carefully on getting the phone recognized by usb, which it was but im having problems on setool lite, the option to unlock and repair the phone is shaded grey. i read practically every post, (i know i have some serious time on my hands lol) one person had the same situation, but mine appears to not even react to the phone at all…any help? your response would greatly be appreciated! thanks!

  427. Akshay says

    Vanee, this is really complicated. how did you install flash drivers when your phone is dead ? do you have other SE phones ?
    install and try and repair

    this is not guaranteed fix. but works many times.

    Fazil.. go for full reflash of phone then, main, fs and cda.

    Noel go for a full reflash again ! with XS++ or SeTool 2 lite !
    w580 are really defective, they should be take off the market immediately

Is my phone broke? I used it 10 mins ago and it was fine, but then the batteries died and that white lightening started to blink, i dont know what to do :(. Please help

  433. tom says

    I got an s500i that froze while I connected the USB cable to it. Now it’s got the red light. I need a little help resetting it though. The instructions aren’t that clear (to me at least). I opened the program, plugged in my USB cord to the comp, clicked unlock/repair, then plugged my phone into the cord while holding 2 + 5. I sat there for 20 minutes while nothing happened …

  434. Junior says

    I have a problem with my w580i. It was working perfectly and then all of sudeen it started to turn off by itself. Now it doesn’t turn on and the dreaded red light is blinking on the side. Please help me fix this problem i don’t wanna go buy another 1 because i don’t have warranty.

  435. Junior says

    And i know that it wasn’t the battery i tried it in another w580 it worked perfectly. i charged my phone for the whole day and it still won’t light up. it would vibrate then nothing would happen. After a few vibrations the red light of death would start blinking.

  436. mike says

    i tried doing this part and it doesnt work…whenever i take out the battery and put the battery back in and click 2 and 5 , and click unlock/repair… it says it’s ready and it’s done but nothing happens i cant turn on my phone

  437. bhuvan says

    @junior
    your erom is dead!

    If i am not getting the correct firmware,how can i reflash my handset.Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

  454. Brandon says

    Hey, I’ve got a 580i that was working fine until it spontaneously died yesterday and I’m getting the blinking red light.

    I installed the flash drivers without any problem (recognized holding down ‘C’) and installed SE Tool2 1.11. I connected to SE Tool2 with both ‘2+5′ and ‘C’ – in each case the phone was detected. However, I’m getting no change in the state of my phone (still blinking red).

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers for the guide!

  467. Akshay says

    did you try to repair ?????????????
    try to flash via 2+5
    you join us at our forum, there queries are answered by many

  468. Christian says

    Ive tried everything!

  469. Christian says

    should i try to connect it with my friends computer? will that work?

  470. Akshay says

    hmm. have you installed usb flash drivers correctly ?
    Its your battery charged well to 100% ??
    Isn’t your phone being detected ?
    You should press a button like Identify and then connect phone holding 2+5 ! in SeTool 2 lite.
    If this does not detect the phone, check your computer and cable. All fails means hardware fail. I hope you find out some solution. :)

  471. shesh says

    i downloaded it and it worked once…. by the time i went back to use the program it wasnt there!! help me akshayy!!! i used the seus to get the drivers. is there any special way to get it to work?

    cda[cust pack]files which contains…few tweaks for ur network settings!

  513. hmk4life_99 says

    I’ve found a way to fix k810i phone when it won’t turn on or have white screen of death.
    I just reflash the phone with main and fs also custom pack using XS++.
    Then use SEtool1.11 to reset the erom to 0000.
    After that is done, you take out the battery. Leave out the battery for about 30 minutes to an hour.
    Then insert the battery, plug in the charger. The phone should start charging. Let it charge fully.
    After fully charged, unplug charger, remove battery. Insert battery and turn on phone.

    Pls note: If your phone halts while recharging then reset erom again. Remove battery and leave it for longer period of time.

    I have no idea why this works for me. It just works. Just wanted to share my experience. Peace.

  514. bhuvan says

    @shesh
    search on google…or go to our support forum and request there

  541. Akshay says

    You should flash the FS connecting the phone 2+5 mode, then try again.

  542. AlecEiffel says

    Hi Ashkay,

  543. Akshay says

    ok, flash the phone with SeTool 2 lite. Flash the FS and Main.
    download main+fs, extract them, in the big white box add the mbn and fbn file. click flash and connect phone holding 2+5.

    hi akshay..can a newbie with no experience in fixing software problem of SE phone can do it with just a simple tutorial??im trying to reprogram my SE k800i..where can i get the complete tutorial?the main problem now is i cant open the application and game folders..it says operation failed..then someone told me that it should be reprogramed..is that the real solution?tnx in advance..

  547. AlecEiffel says

    Thanks Ashkay, i still have one problem. Apparently i need the S500_R6BC002_FS_GENERIC_RED52 or S500_R6BC002_FS_AMERICA_RED52 FS file, as im using the S500_R6BC002_FS_CENT_EUROPE_RED52 on an american phone and there is always an error during the FS flash.

    Any idea where i can get the FS file? All the sources i try are down due to them being old and almost everyone else only carries the S500_R6BC002_FS_CENT_EUROPE_RED52 one.

  548. Akshay says

    we have jdflasher tutorial ready check out.

  549. Akshay says

    then its best you get it fixed from service center. it costs only 6$ or 250 Rs.

  550. Akshay says

    yes classic case, fix using setool 2 lite.

  551. Akshay says

    you can get them at esnips mirko750 folder.
    just google search esnips mirko750

  552. Anne says

    Fantastic – Thank You. Phone was switched off due to low battery and then wouldnt charge or switch on.Just the blinking LED!I hadnt got drivers installed but although I got errors on installation and it took over a dozen attempts to get the phone to hold its connection to the PC it finally worked!Phone was left on charge overnight and SIM replaced the following morning.All now working.Thanks Again.

    My Sony Ericsson W200 phone is effected with Trojan Horse Virus. I have tried to remove it by formatting the memory card and phone card. But as soon as I connect my mobile with PC it is showing that both memory card and phone card is effected with virus.
    On the other hand my mobile’s memory card is not working properly as it has already been formatted.

    Anirban. wrong question.
    please don’t ask all that. here.

  557. sadman says

    hey akshay bro i need some help with my old k608,when i try to start my phone it just shows a black screen and does not starts,the key pad lights flashes but the phone doesnt start,should flash the EROM in this case?????

  558. bhuvan says

    @sadman
    try reflashing…

  559. Ranno says

    hey, i downloaded setool 1.11 lite but i don’t know how to install it, can you show me how?

  560. Ranno says

    it doesn’t do anything when i hold 2+5 when i pressed unlock/repair.

  561. bhuvan says

    @ Ranno
    first you have to install usb flash drivers!
    get one from our filebase[gordon gate's flash driver]
    then open se tool and click on unlock/repair
    now connect your phone holding 2+5

  562. sadman says

    cant reflash,xs++ cant detact the phone,and my dcu-11 is also not installing although i have cd…

  563. bhuvan says

    @ sadman
    installed usb flash drivers?
    what problem are u facing??
    if red light blinking then follow the tutorial

  564. hmk4life_99 says

    if u get the error 29 its due to flashing in a warm room. do it in an air conditioned room or place your phone in a cool place for a while before you flash it.
    however i just stick my phone in a zip lock bag. put in freezer for 10 minutes. then use setool list 1.11 to flash main+fs using 2+5.
    don’t do the freezer trick if the phone is precious to you. i only did it because i don’t have air conditioning room. hope it helps.

  565. Ranno says

    does it matter is its brown and not red?
    because it reads but nothing it happening.

  566. von says

    askhay i’m trying this procedure on a v630i model. how long must i wait on holding 2+5 while setool is doing its stuff by pressing the first button. i have been holding it for more than 3 minutes and nothing is being recognize

  567. bhuvan says

    @hmk4life_99
    lol….nice joke!!
    fake

  568. bhuvan says

    @ Ranno
    no…it should be red only!

  569. bhuvan says

    @ von
    installed usb drivers??
    it should recognize fast!!!

  570. Pran says

    Red light blinks 6 times whn i press power button.. Nothing else happens… this is what i get wnh i repair with SEtool2lite….

  572. jerry says

    I am having the red blinking problem on my w580i

    I downloaded the flash drivers and the se tool.

    I open the program ,select what phone I have ,hit the unlock repair button, hold c and hook usb cable.

    How long does it take for the fix to take place. I think it isn’t doing anything at all. It still says press c and hook usb and the blue progress bar just keeps filling and repeating.

    Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Or maybe a walkthru. thx

    I hooked up the phone pressing 2+5 and got this.

    Greetings! When I try to connect my cell, I select the appropriate device (a w610i) and check the box which says ”Bypass DB2020 Security”. When I click Unlock/Repair, the only thing shown is just the progress bar that just keeps going! No information is shown, what do I do?

  576. Metzas says

    An update on my situation, I just pressed the stop button, and the program said ”phone pre-boot fail, possible RECOVERY needed”. I tried that but also without result, and I see that even the red blinkink lights dont appear anymore, any idea about the problem?

  577. jerry says

    ah , well i guess it’s time to get an exchange on the old tele. I gave it a try tho. thx AK

  578. tushar says

    when try to switch on my k608 it shows a white screen then goes black,key pad lights are ok. I tried to connect it to my pc through dcu-11 but pc does not detect it. I even tried to connect it in xs++ but it does not detect it either. I got flash usb driver installed but the problem persist. Is it a hardware problem???

    What should i do?

  579. bhuvan says

    @ Metzas
    if windows says that it is unrecognized object…then connect it again by twisting the cable…and clean tha jack…somtyms this happens because of dust between connectors!
    now….install the usb drivers

  580. bhuvan says

    @Metzas
    if your phone was not connected then how can it get repaired???
    no way!
    n that log…it always sayz the same
    nt a big deal

  581. Metzas says

    @ bhuvan
    My phone was connected, prior to connecting I installed the appropriate drivers and Windows recognized my phone as a flash device when I connected it pushing the 2+5 buttons. The problem persists thoughtm cant think of any solution :(

  582. bhuvan says

    @Metzas
    if ur pc connected it the way u r saying
    then its all fine
    try ref;lashing main and fs both now

  592. Amar says

    Hey Guys

    I am a new techbee so ignore my details. Here is a puzzle. I read for 3 days continuosly before i flashed this w850i. I had the same bloody white screen and those red lights blinking up.

    After going through hundreds of threads, I realised noone is sure where the problem is. Half believes that this could be Hardware trouble, but I already brought it back from the repair man who checked it properly and tried the new pcb board and lcd screen but in vain. So I BELIEVED THE OTHER HALVES (SOFTWARE TROUBLE). Decided to give it a full go.

    Before going any further, let me say this.

    1. XS++ (any version) didnt work for me.

    Baseband ID: 9900
    Protocol Version: 3.1……….. That is all what it could tell me.

    2. SEUS couldnt recognise the phone.. “””IDENTIFICATION FAILED……”””””

    3. I am in Australia and use this phone here but it was actually bought in India. Why I said that is because most of the users wont be happy to see the Custom pack, FS and MAIN I used. I tried to be reasonable but couldnt get more than two or three files of each for this model.
    MAIN—————–W850_R1KG001_MAIN_GENERIC_CY_RED52.mbn
    FS——————-W850_R1KG001_FS_C_ASIA_RED52.fbn
    CUSTOM PACK——–W850_CDA102568_7_R5A_GENERIC_C_ASIA.zip

    4. I think there was a trouble writing Custom pack. I will highlight that part.

    they just wanna leav your phone like that
    it is known worldwide that service centere service is really bad!!!
    same here in india…but here…i had same problem..but they got new motherboard
    well…wish u luck!

  596. bhuvan says

    @Amar
    phewww!!!lol
    well…whats the exact problem???
    red light blinking???
    if yes then….the se tool way is final and last one
    2+5 thing is the only way out!
    when u connect your phone to pc holding ‘c’ key what happens?
    does pc says semc flash device?

  597. Amar says

    Hello Bhuvan

    Yes the red light is blinking if I try to switch it on while charging.. I didnt count how many blinks.. Advice me if it means something..

    If I try to switch on without charging… then it vibrates once, flashes white screen and then nothing…

    if white screen is cmoing up…then surely its erom aint dead!
    try other battery!
    and then re flash your phone!

  599. Amar says

    Plz suggest me the appropriate MAIN, FS and Custom pack… what about the error while flashing the first time (plz see the first log I posted). I want to make sure I flash them with the right files.

    Thanks folks

  600. bhuvan says

    @Amar
    go to topse
    go in firmwares section and now get the latest one cid:52 one

  601. jimzt402 says

    @bhuvan
    i dont know what happened, i mean the phone simply gone dead..does not turns on..only those red diode blinking when i put on the charger or the usb cable…tried connecting it with wotan, kulankendi, XS++ and setool2lite but nothing seems to be recognizing my phone.. nothing happen when i connect the phone.. i recharged the batt overnight..tried to connect again in the morning but nothing…i installed usbflash drive…but its not appearing on my pc… i tried connecting my P1i..the cable is fine..even all the software above is fine..is this mean that my K800i is officially dead…please advise..tq in advance

  602. bhuvan says

    @jimzt402
    so.,…when u put it on charging does red light blinks???
    and at any single moment…whatever u do…does screen goes on???like white screen???
    if not then erom has gone dead
    u need to do mentiond 2+5 method to get rid of it
    whats your erom vesrion??
    cid:52 or cid:53???
    if less than cid:53 then u can repair it through setool lite cuz yet se tool do not support cid:53

  603. jimzt402 says

    @buvan
    tq for the reply, .. yes when i put the charger on it does blink..i did 2+5 method but any of those software mentioned above do not recognised my phone.. XS++ says

    16:34:19| Error: Cannot open phone communication port

    16:34:21| Disconnected… Unplug the phone

    what seems to be the problem…

    i dont know my erom version coz i cannot get it connected to any of those software above.. all i want to do is to get my phone connected and i can do the flashing if it is an erom issue…please help

  604. jimzt402 says

    @bhuvan

    and..the phone is not turning on at all…no white screen..nothing… i suppose the phone is dead forever….sigh…

  605. Amar says

    Hi Jim, though I have got the trouble but i believe I can help you someway.. I just realised that when I was in your condition, I left my battery charging for couple of hrs. Luckily I checked the battery status in the other SE and this is what I get…

    The battery was still in the last stages with almost no charging..

    Charge battery in the other phone… It will possible help..

    Amar

    BHUVAN thanks for the post

  606. Amar says

    Bhuvan and others, I reflashed it with full battery this time but no success.

    As per you said, the red blinking lights are gone. I tried Repair/Unlock of SETOOL button but no success.

    Thanks

  607. Akshay says

    Amar, its better then to get it fixed from Service Center. When hardware is in the problem, then software fixes rarely work.

    @ Amar
    ya
    amar when nothing is working then go for service centre nw

  611. bhuvan says

    @jimzt402
    you have to use setool for that
    not xs++
    just check through setool
    if still doesnt works den service centre

  613. Amar says

    Well Bhuvan and Akshay, thanks… I will take it to repair center soon but I have a small fact which amuses me.

    Till now I have flashed it 3 times but the
    1. CDA is totally unchanged…(It had CDA102568/101 but I flashed successfully with CDA102568/2 then /7 and some other but even now CDA is same).

    2. Phone name changed after first flashing… then is not coming back by any other flashing.. I will restore GDFS and then flash with different files than I used the first time.

    Guys, thanks for the high spirits, but just like you guys I dont want to give up. I still believe somewhere from the searches that this can be a software trouble (though my mind doesnt say that any more)…LOL

    I couldnt find anywhere the exact files on GOOGLE for the
    w850 R1KG001 FS APAC CID52 for MBN
    and the same for Custom pack..

    Help guys

    did u restored gdfs????

    and i am still not able to understand your first point

  616. Amar says

    Hello Bhuvan,

    I havednt restored GDFS yet. But now I am thinking why I Didnt. My whole attention was to get the correct files but maybe the first time flash files were corrupted.

    Thanks Bhuvan for continuous replies.. Will be back soon…

    Hello Akshay…
    Ive read through the comments and just wanna get this straight for the last time…
    I think I fried my EROM and I don’t think that I have the USB flash drivers. I say this because Ive tried using SEtools and XS++ and the KKclient, but none of the programs is detecting my phone in the 2+5 mode.
    Tell me if theres any other way I can reactivate my phone and please doon’t hesitate from going into detail since Im a newbie with this..My phone is a w580i. none of my friends has this phone so according to what ive read, its gonna be a problem installing the drivers. please suggest a work around.
    Thanx a lot and lemme tell you that uve done a great job of helping a lot of people here… I hope i’ll be able to say the same about my case.

  634. bhuvan says

    @Sami
    install gordons gate drivers from our filebase
    install it
    now try
    if your phone is cid:53 then no way of fixing it..else it will get fixed

    Hello Akshay.
    I have a problem with my S500i phone, it happened when I was trying to unlock my s500i. The thing is that now my phone is dead, I can’t turn it on, charge it, etc. Unfortunately, i didn’t back up the GDFS. A Red light at the infrared port blinks when I try to start my phone. I tried the tutorial mentioned above but nothing happened. The setool recognized the phone when holding 2+5 but it didn’t repair it, and gave me the following error ” CSloader refused to start GDFS services, error is:29″
    please let me know if there is a way to fix my phone. Thanks

  638. bhuvan says

    @HFTB
    now try reflashing

  639. RAD says

    hey My Sony w580i doesnt start up when i press the power button it flashes red light on on side any idea how to repair it cause this cell was working just fine untill i took it outta my pocket and saw it dead i really love my cell and please reply soon or i’ll be screwed and tell me how to repair step by step pls

  640. bhuvan says

    @lol
    we all love our cell…
    first try recharging it….
    if nothing happens then follow the red light one guide
    and get gordons gate drivers from our filebase and install them….then do all stuff in se tool

  641. HFTB says

    @bhuvan
    Thank you.

    Can you give me any tips for reflashing. Beside, neither setool nor XS++ recognized the phone when holding ‘C’ button.

  642. hellboy says

    @HFTB
    See if JDFlasher recognizes the phone. If it does not, and you have no GDFS backup, I say take it to a service center.

  643. bhuvan says

    @ HFTB
    must be cid:53
    use jdflasher
    get the latest one from our filebase

  644. bhuvan says

    @ HFTB
    and yea..
    if red light is blinking…and phone is cid:53
    then no way out!
    go for service center

  645. HFTB says

    @
    the phone is cid:52
    should I reflash it with cid:53 firmware or cid:52

  646. HFTB says

    hi again
    In case JDflasher doesn’t recognize the phone when holding ‘c’ will holding ‘2+5′ work for flashing.

  647. bhuvan says

    HFTB
    phone is cid:53
    and red light blinking is the rpoblem then go for setool…
    that will help u!

When i finished my phone wouldnt even turn on. It didnt flash red at all. It just wont turn on at all. I tried to check if it was the EROM and it gave me the following msg.

    Hey guys,

    I figured out the problem. The pc wasnt recognizing the phone, so whenever I reconnected it to the PC i had to remove the battery and then reinsert it. After that i just reflashed the MAIN. My phone is all good.

  664. Jamie says

    Hey, my Sony Ericsson W580i froze a few days ago as I pressed the walkman button. I closed it and all of a sudden it switched off. When I tried to switch it back on, a red light started flashing on the right side but nothing else would happen. The battery was full, however i tried charging it anyway, when I switched on the charger, the same thing happened, I wouldn’t even charge up, It just flashed for 5 seconds and then nothing.
    So after that I tried connecting my phone to the computer, but it just did the same thing, the computer couldn’t find my phone.

    Why has this happened and how can I fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

  665. bhuvan says

    follow this tutorial…red light blonking one..
    that will solve it

    i have a problem with my w880i. for a long period my phone was broked (about 2 weeks after i upgraded it, it switched off and wouldnt turn on). so i went back to using my nokia 8800, that broke and i took it to pieces and replaced loads of parts. then i dropped it in a drink and it stopped workin as expected. so went back to the sew880. i took it to a phone shop today and he told me some bullshit about replacing the screen (blatent lie cause when i got it back it hadnt been opened up and you can tell because of the walkmen sticker at the bottom). anyway he got it working regardless but it keeps freezing up. it turns on and works for 2 minutes and then freezes. so i take the battery out put it back in and it works for 2 more minutes. sometime the screen just goes black but the led backlight stays on and it needs the battery taking out. if i go into messages it crashes. if i make 2 phone calls consecutively it crashes. i’ve flashed the software using the se website but this has not solved the issue. occasionaly i get a breif red light flash from under the keypay but if i take out the battery and reinsert it the phone turns on for another 2 minutes. will using this erom repair technique fix my issues? thank you to anyone for your time.

  684. Seventy8 says

    Hello, my v630 is dead and redlight blinking. Note that I can’t even charge it or connect it to the PC.

    I follow your guide exactly, but it’s not woking. When I plug in the device, holding 2 and 5 down, the LED blinks again and SEtool2 doesn’t seem to identify it. Is there anything else I could do?

  685. bhuvan says

    imran
    install the usb drivers then give a try back!

  694. Akshay says

    Zander, this is the fix, if it does not work, the Sony Ericsson Service Center is your only way.

  695. Aaron says

    can anybody help me, i have a W880i, i have installed the flash driver using a SE W850, however becuz my w880 is dead(i get a red light behind the c button when charging) my windows vista is sayin that the usb device is not recognized so setool2 isnt piking anything up! any help would be appreciated.

  696. Akshay says

    Aaron, sorry what’s up ?
    use some other phone to install usb drivers then attempt repair. :-)

  697. Michelle says

    Hi,
    I just wanted to say thanks for this post! You helped me to get my w580i to turn on again, after being told by the phone repair shop that it couldn’t be fixed i decided to try it myself. SO thank you so much for this post it was a great help!
    Thanks again!

  698. bhuvan says

    Michelle

    congrats!

  699. Greg says

    So just to be clear, I have a W580i with the red light blinking, battery is charged. When I attempt to fix it with SEToolLite I get

    FLASH CID:53 COLOR:RED
    Can’t build loaders chain ;(

    The phone is out of warranty.

    So there is nothing I can do to fix this myself?

  700. bhuvan says

    Greg
    sorry man
    no way!

  701. feng says

    how come there isit any response from the SEtoollite v.1.08 when i hold Cancel or “2+5″ when i on the phone…do i have to hold the buttons thru out the process?….and what’s the use of installing the drivers?…

  702. bhuvan says

    feng

  706. ed_case7 says

    Hi all,

    I have a W595 (DB3150) that is effectively dead.

    I can connect using 2+5, and have tried flashing using A2 Uploader & DaVinci, but it always fails.

    I am guessing that the EROM is corrupt so I need to repair it.

    does anyone know of a way to do this; other than using D-Ultimate Unlocker for €28???

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

  707. bhuvan says

    Antony
    is red light still blinking?
    if it has stopped then restore gdfs

  708. bhuvan says

    ed_case7
    here we talk only about free flashing
    so….no davinci or other money services…
    and no way out in case of a2 uploading
    and till now we didnt saw any dead problems in a2 phones!!!!
    there is soemthing else wrong….
    get it to ss
