my xperia x8 wont turn on fully!!

ive had the phone for a few months now and it kept cancelling out of things and telling me they were not responding and i had to force close them. this was happening with only one or two apps to begin with but then it started doing it with everything. now its turned off and wont go past the sony ericsson start up screen when i turn it on. it just keeps showing the sony ericsson logo then going black and doing it again over and over. it still charges but wont connect to a pc. any ideas what could be wrong, or how to fix it? i dont have my receipt anymore so cant get it repaired under warranty.

use Update Service to repair your phone

Hi Aman25da, you can still do a Software repair using SE Update Service (does not require phone to be turned on).

I guess you can't do any backup.

you will lose everything but if you used the Backup & Restore app before you should have most of your apps there and if you sync w/ google then you can retrieve y our contacts

you don't have to mount anything, just connect on flashmode

Re: my xperia x8 wont turn on fully!!

1) Turn off the phone, disconnect from computer

2) You can use Update Service or PC Companion (here you need to select Support Zone->Software Update->Repair)

3) Once you see phones, select your X8

4) Now follow the instructions on the PC, press back button while inserting the usb cable - keep the button down until Update Service/PC Companion starts to download

Note: Your personal data will be lost, so if you can backup do this before you start with the sw repair.
