I managed to fix my telephone.
First a Repair through PC Companion (connected without SIM card) made it possible to start it with SIM installed. Then everything worked except Google sync over wi-fi.
A final reset to factory values (Settings > SD card > Factory data reset) put the last pieces in place. Fortunately all my contacts were already synced with Gmail contacts, and SD card was untouched. All apps had to be reinstalled.

Yesterday I took the phone for repair the second time, and it will not turn on only with mine mobile service provider (3 different SIMs tried, all failed), and it turns on immediatelly for others (2 different providers, 4 SIM cards tried, all turned on). Will see if they can fix that...
@OleE For me, that fixes the issue temporary, first next time my battery dries out, it will not start again.

I was able to fix my phone too: Using PC Companion and after upgrading the phone's software via usb, it works again. Let's see for how long... I'm afraid it will break again

Hello, im having the same problem here. But i already get a new phone from the store and the problem persists, Then have asked the mobile company a new sim card, and guess what.... the problem persists. Sadly they dont accept a brand or model change, and they only offer me a new X10 mini for test. Sony Ericson is the first and last buy for sure. I just love Android and when i got the chance will get a real phone. The SE dont even answer, so we dont have much option as wait to 2.1 to fix this.

finally I fixed that, at least for the Xperia Mini
after lots of tries....
follow the steps:
1 - remove your SIM card from your phone.
2 - install and download the SE PC Companion 2.0 from the following link:
3 - click the start button in Suport Zone, then software Update.
4 - follow the steps of the installer.
5 - when finished reset the fone, and wait it to start.
6 - turn off your phone.
7 - insert again your SIM card.
8 - try to turn on the fone.
9 - when turned on, if it was without net signal, make a hard reset, holding the center button, and then press and hold the on/off button and wait it to vibrate.
10 - release the buttons, and wait.
this step by step, worked for me, and I hope to fix all your problems...
sorry by the messed english...

Does it solves the issue permanently for you, ie. when the phone battery dries out again - can you turn it back on? (or you haven't tried that yet?)

I hope its permanent... hehehe
when the battery dries out I will send another message here...
but, how I didnt have to recover nothing, it probably means that the problem are solved...
all information and apps still instaled in my phone, nothing were lost...
have you tried this process too Sumane??

I took the phone to SE service center twice already (currently it is there for the third time), and they did something that solved problem temporary - I could start it again, but only until next time battery dries out.
So at least now I know how to do what they did by myself, thanks.
Hope though that this is different, and solves problem permanently, though I am not to optimistic. But at least makes problem little more bareable...

oh my goodness T_T I have the same problem. I just bought mine...waiting to be amazed with this phone.. choosing this phone over others because it's small. disregarding the battery life problem.. but MAN this power problem.. just to turn the phone on is ALREADY a big turn off. T_T dont make me feel REALLY bad on buying this phone. T_T

Hi, same problem here, guess we have found a real bug in x10 (mini pro in my case). I tried your solution, but pc campanion says my phone is updated and only gives me the option to repair. I tried that, but after downloading, when it is installing it displays an error message. So I made a factory reset and it just work, but I dont know for how long, just hoping this wont happen again when battery dries out. Another thing I notice with this bug is that when we press the on button and it doesnt respond (just the slightly vibration), it actually is on, because it gets very hot after a while if you leave the SIM card in the phone, and the battery is still used, but nothing is shown in the screen.
