    Visit a store that sells the phone and test using a replacement battery.

    Hopefully you have done a backup recently.

    If so, install SEUS from Sony and run that and repair the phone.

    ive already tried sues but all it is doing is telling me phone is fine and letting me update the phone. no option to repair. after i update, when i try to switch it on i get a red light flashing three times

    If you can't use SEUS to fix it. Find an old ROM for 2.1 or something and use the Flashtool to flash to an older version.

    Then use SEUS to repair/update it.

    ok update time. i reflashed a 2.1 then hooked up seus and updated to 2.3 and thought everything was going ok but the phone keeps shutting down now. hope someone can suggest any other way to help me fix. ive only been a week without an android phone and the withdrawal symptoms are kicking in lol

    After installing 2.3, do a factory reset again (even if it just went through the setup wizard.

    It would be a good idea maybe to reset the battery recalibrator or something

    Something that might reset the battery stats, or try using your wife's battery again.

    Or if your phone is rooted use this:

    Hi android

    now im very upset -
    A month ago - I have and i got problem of memory - ( no memory card - and not recognized and all of this word about the memory proplems ) i fixed this proplem manytime by repair or updat my xperia x10 - and
    This method solved the problem for days just days - and after i send some song or pic to my phone - after some days this song or pic Disappear again from the gallery or from memory -
    Why do my stuff disappear from memory and from my phone ???
    i formate my memory several times - NTFS / AND Tryes alsow FAT 32 And this is not fixed the proplem > and when i go to storeg in my phone i see : Erase SD card is hidden

    i can not use my camera - why android why ???
    Why the camera strapped memory - i updated my phone manytime and i repaired my phone manytime i used sony pc comp - or pc update programs - and alsow this is not fixed my proplem .

    the proplem is not in the phone - the proplem in android 2.3.3 .

    Because - after downloading the new system from a updated or repaired - solve the problem for days or just hours - and back again >
    and I do a search on the internet about this problem - and found that a lot lot of Android phones have a problem and got the same problem .

    Android - i can not use my camera - What I want from the phone if he does not have a camera??

    What is the solution now

    Not sure why you thought typing in a larger font and centering it would help get your question answered quicker....but,

    You are suppose to format SD card from phone...on phone, unmount card, format sd card, then mount sd card. If you can't format the sd card (not erase) then make sure there isn't any switch on the card making it read-only.

    Or download a different camera app like Camera360. In Camera360 you can specify where you want pictures to be saved.

    Also, when you upgrade from 2.1 to 2.3, you are suppose to do a factory reset wiping out all old data from 2.1 before you start using 2.3. Try that if problems persist. (that will also cause a problem if you are having problems on with the SD card)
