You should try to update the software with PC Companion, http://www.sonyericsson.com/pccompanion.

In the program you click on Support Zone > Start (below update).

If a newer software is not available you should repair the software instead.

This is done at Support Zone > Start > Repair the phone.

(The phone should so far not be connected when repairing. The program will tell you when to connect the phone.)

If this won't fix your problem you need to contact your dealer and ask for assistance with sending the phone to an authorized repair centre.
