    Not able to turn on Sony Ericsson Xperia Play

    No matter how much I tried, I am not able to turn on my Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. I have found a small RED light flashing on its power button. How can I repair it?

    Hello ,
    the red light flashing on the power button could be because of low battery . The battery could have drained out . You need to connect your device to the charger and wait for the battery to charge completely . You can then hold the power button and try to switch it on again .
    Hope that helps . Thanks

    Remove the battery & then again put it & try to restart again.If still not work then don;'t try to do anything by yourself.You might harm your phone.
    SO,better to go service centre there they will fix your problem.Note that it is Sony Ericsson & once Sony Ericsson phone gets tampered then even after repairing it there is no guarantee that it will not create problem in future & also the parts of sony ericsson device is not easy to find.This biggest problem with Sony's any product.
    Immediately go to service centre & tell your prblem they solve it.

    If you were planning to update a phone’s software then phone must me charged more than 70%. In your case it looks like your phone battery is not enough to turn on your mobile. While updating phone software mobile consumes large amount of battery. So it may possible that your phone’s battery is died during the process of updating of software. So connect your phone to charger then try to turn on your phone.

    1) The problem seems to be with the battery, so just replace the battery and see whether the Device is switching back on.
    2) If that is not working then there is no other alternate option other than getting the Help from the Service center Representatives.
    3) Find out SONY authorized service center and get the Repair done, If its a serious problem and the Device is under Warranty then they will change the Device and provide you new One.

    What if it DOES work? I am having troubles with my Experia Play, I cannot turn it on at all. The Green light comes on when I plug it in, and as well as it says "Sony Ericsson" and then the picture of the charging battery comes on. I hold the button, I repeadedly push it, I've pulled out the battery, put it back in.. Nothing seems to be working ... I NEEEEEEED my phone! Can you guys please help me?

    Hello,
    This red light can be a signal of low battery. Just replace your battery with a new one and try again. The phone should power on now. However, if the problem still persists, then it is better to go to the nearest Sony Ericsson Service Centre and get your issue resolved. Thank You. Hope this helps.

    hey friend

    If you are not able to turn on your Sony Xperia Play phone and the red light flashes in it then it seems like the problem is with the battery of your phone...

    Yes , this red light indication is for the low battery in your phone..
    So , just charge your phone and then try to turn it on..

    If this also not help you , then you have to hard reset your phone and then try to turn it on ..
    If nothing works then take your phone to the service centre and get it checked...

    thanks
