W595, media,walkman,battery not charging

ive been using my sony ericsson w595 for about 5 months now,but it started to have problems. my media player not working,all my games and applications are gone,when i set my themes,it said "theme corrupt,cant be set" i cant even put a wallpaper. i've tried resetting the phone several times. i removed mem card and all. nothing happened,it just gets worse and worst.often times the phone suddenly shuts off by itself and when i open it all messages and contacts are deleted.,call register does not registers recent calls. now the phone doesn't charge. everytime i put the chrager, a notification always says"cannot charge,please use a sony ericsson battery"

this phone is brandnew, original. and all it's accesories.

What am i gonna do?Can someone help me?

Sound like it needs a software update because at 5 months old it's not actually brand new.Use SEUS via PC.

Incase you dont know what SEUS is it is called Sony Ericsson Update Service and or you can try SE PC Companion.

ok,i will try that out. But how AM I SUPPOSED TO if my phone is dead because battery is empty i can't charge it. a display always says"cannot be charged please use a sony ericsson battery" Should i replace its battery with a new one? If i replaced it and same problem occured, what then?

Don't worry so much about the error message, but see if the PC recognises your phone so that you can run the SEUS on it.If it doesn't and the phone is completely unusable, with and without the PC, then  you need to contact SE customer support.The battery charge error message is often a sign that a software update is needed.Also, the fact that your phone actually displays this message means that it isn't completely dead and it may still charge through the USB connection.Another thing you can try is to remove the battery for a few minutes, replace it and restart you phone,as this sometimes may fix the problem, at least temporarily.
