Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Black Screen - Unlock Button Not WorkingAug 25, 2010
My x10 went onto a black screen and the unlock button does not work. The phone is on and fully charged but cant do anything.
My x10 went onto a black screen and the unlock button does not work. The phone is on and fully charged but cant do anything.
First of all this is minor Bug, but still - BUG! There is phone configuration description:
Phone: Xperia X10i
FW: android 2.1
patterns - default slider + unlock pattern
1) When phone is locked, press home or power button.
2) move slider, to be able to draw pattern.
3) Start to draw pattern and wait till screen goes black (do not remove your finger). So your pattern is not finished and screen has gone black. Try to remember place of the finger.
4) Press home or power button again.
5) Finish unlock pattern from place you was, when screen turned black.
6) Your phone is unlocked!
So, if you did not finished your pattern and your screen have gone black you might think, that the phone locked, but this is not true. Your Phone can be Quite Easily unlocked in the Pocket.
I just cannot believe whats happening with my brand new cell phone. Initially when i purchased it , this device started restarting. And when i complain to the SE they told me the battery connecter is damaged. So they sent my cell phone to Dubai SE. Got it replaced, and no restart yet. BUT the right side screen flickers and the switch on/off button is not working. So i cannot switch off my cell phone. If i remove battery and then again insert it, then phone start automatically without using the switch on button. What must be done, i have purchased this cell phone in Qatar and now i am in India. Please help this is so kinda heartbreakingView 8 Replies View Related
This was reported in the other thread about X8 Issues, but thought to start a new one to gather feedback from users. It's about the ''black screen'' freezing issue encountered by some users. I have had this several times since owning the phone for a few weeks, so it is a recurring issue. Problem: The phone hangs or appears to be shut down or become unresponsive suddenly. Pressing the hardware buttons doesn't help as the phone doesn't react at all. Solution: Take out cover and battery and restart.Observations: From my own observations, it's not actually a shutdown but a major freezing/hanging. Sometimes when it happens, I can still see vague shades of the display at an angle. After leaving the phone for a while in the pocket, the phone comes back to normal again. Not sure if this is true for all users with this problem. Anyway, gathering more feedback to see how prevalent the problem is, to evaluate whether I should take it to the SE service centre, or whether doing so will help at all.View 3 Replies View Related
I am trying to unlock my phone. It's a rogers (Canadian) phone. I put a telus sim card in it, but when the phone boots, it says "activating phone", black screen with little spinney thing, then the phone continues to boot normally, and the main screen says "no sim in phone", and basically ignores the sim card.View 2 Replies View Related

I have a big problem,it happens once a day(it happend before MR1,with MR1,and with MR2). Cant unlock the screen,when I need to drag padlock left or right it just cant,padlock stays on the left or right side, I can get it back to the middle but unlock - NO (sometimes it promts for some ''unlock code'' but it is not usual lock code as I never set a lock code) and in mean while if you receive a call from some one he complained later on that why didn't you receive the phone, my answer is always that phone never vibrate or ring but when i check the miss call log the call was really there.
The only temporary solution is soft reset. Somebody have something to say?
I just bought the Xperia, I am really happy with it.Everything has worked perfectly;however, I think my phone has a problem with the camera.Basically, the button on the right-hand side of the phone is not working, when I press it the camera doesn't appear, and the only way that I have to take pictures is with the touch screen a not with that button, because when i press it, the square in the middle becomes green and the phone makes a sound.Do I have to configure it? or my phone has a problem?View 4 Replies View Related

I've had my Xperia X1 since christmas 2008, About 2 weeks ago while i was writing a text and the screen went blank so i just thought my battery had gone. when i got home i put it on charge over night and when i got up in morning i tried turning it on and nothing happened (i mean that little vibrate it dones when it switches on), so i took the battery out for 5 minutes then put it back in and tried again and it did that vibrate thing but nothing came up on screen but then someone started ringing me (still nothing on screen) and when i pressed button to answer it, it wouldn't answer and kept on ringing. I've tried updating the software from my laptop and i think it updated it but i couldn't tell because i can't see anything lol but it's still the same. i haven't dropped it or anything so i haven't got a clue why it's suddenly stopped working.....View 3 Replies View Related
I'm having trouble with one thing on the Cliq - hanging up calls. Since the end call button is on the screen, 2 things keep happening:
- I hang up on someone by mistake, because my cheek touches the button while I'm talking
- By the time I am done talking, the screen has gone black, so I have to hit the menu button to turn the screen back on.. but that takes me back to the home screen, so I have to navigate through to get back to my call and hang up!
Is there some sort of setting or app that could change the end call button to a hard key, like the back button, so we can hang up that way? It would be a tremendous help!
But now whenever I'm taking a call the touch screen stops working, so the only way for me to hang up is to take the battery out.Has anyone else had the same problem and is their anything I can do to fix this?View 3 Replies View Related

I'm sure this has probably been noticed and mentioned. Encase it hasn't; did you know you can switch from left to right. Press and hold the top of it, it flashes, you just then turn it.View 2 Replies View Related
I have just got my sony Ericsson xperia x10, and after i have entered my pin code it asks for a sim network unlock code.. does anyone have any idea what this is or how i can get it ??View 3 Replies View Related
I've had the X10 for a few months now, loved it to begin with but as time has gone on I've begun to notice all the flaws this phone has.
My latest problem concerns the slider - its actually stuck on the setting for left handed people which isn't convenient for me being right handed and before any of you mention that it can be changed - it can't in my case.
For some reason whenever i try and grab it to switch it back in the position for right handed users - nothing happens! Ive turned my phone on/off, taken the battery out and even charged it to see if it makes any difference.
Will I still be able to use the Arc shaped unlock bar if I update to 2.1?Its kinda silly but one of the reason why I got the X10 is because I hated the bar unlock from my iphone.View 1 Replies View Related

first time on here and have a few issues with my se X10.Ok first thing is when you need to unlock the phone when it has been in standby you have the curvy finger swipe thing on the screen, when I got the phone it was at the bottom left curving up to the right, last night I did something but I have no idea what it was but it has changed sides to the bottom right, not a major issue but it is annoying me how it changed sides as i prefered it the other way when using the phone one handed, I do hope this makes sense and I hope someone can help me ??
Secondly I am having a problem connecting to my home wifi network, it will connect to some open networks nearby but not my home one, although it did the first day I got the phone but now it says it remembers the network but everytime I try to connect it just says scanning, any advice would be useful.
I have only had the phone for a week so far and overall am really pleased with it moving from a nokia 5800 after being a se man for many years, just a couple of niggly things that I am sure can be sorted, great phone though.
