Re: Sony Xperia Neo not turning on

Thank you very much Uliwooly..... I finally fixed my mobile.... I also understand what the problem was... I had damaged the bootloader + battery was also empty. When I started to flash my mobile with flash utility it started flahsing but since mobile was low on battery ...it used to shutdown in process .... On the other hand ... what i was seeing on screen was that flash utility used to get stuck IF theat different places.... so i kept it flashing again and again and one time i completed the flash and WALAAAH.... mobile was perfectly ok ... So when  red light blinks three times that means that battery is dead... EVEN if you have a corrupted leader....

A cell will be bricked if it doesn't respond at all to anything even the led light will stop working

Re: Sony Xperia Neo not turning on

if you just bought this phone, you should return it/exchange it, at least thats what I would do
