I got the white screen as well... I'm on a mac so I thought maybe (since it's not supported) that screwed it up. but after many frustrating attempts at removing the battery, finally I just let the white screen sit and had it plugged into the power cord. after about 20min. It came back. no problem...?
for the money this should not happen!
and to bongo:
the w600 is not the same as the w550. well almost. the w600 is quad-band, making it much easier to connect to the plentiful 850mhz bands here in the states.
ha, had this phone for about a month now, and it bloody rocks!, best quadband phone evar(maybe am just stupid cuz this is my very first phone lol). love the walkman, got about 150 songs in it. the earphones are OK, the mega-bass equalizer is schweeeet!!!. dont like the swivel thingy.. thats like protecting the keypad instead of protecting the screen from getting scratched up or sumtin? but pretty nifty phone.
i had a few freezes quite a few times, had to take the battry out to to get it going again, :(
Hey man i dont know how long the battery will last if you run the walkman on speaker but i still dont reccomend it because those speakers are not meant for loud music and they will blow out in time..
Does anyone know how long the battery will last if I run the walkman on speaker?
I have got the W550 and personally I think its a very good phone....the battery doesnt last long but I have used it for many things and I think its excellent and its never broke on me! xxXxx
I had this phone for 2 days. I loaded about 5 tracks on it. Went to plug it to the charger....BOOOOM. White screen of death. I had to send it to Sony Ericsson at my expense. They will fix it free. This sucks. 2 days I had it!!!
you use the remote control feature with a bluetooth adapter. i have used it as my mouse, its awesome!! well, a bit slower than the usual mouse, but yea, its awesome!
what exactly is this remote control thing on this w600??? how do i use it???
The sony w600 has a EDGE conection, gaming buttons, and stereo speakers, but the w800 no has anything of this functions
my point isn't that it will only play one song, its that it can't only play one song. The only way to do that is to make a playlist with only one song in it, or to only have one song for that artist/album so when you play the folder there is only one song in the playlist.
basically i mean there is no repeat option on the phone for one song, there is only repeat for the entire playlist/folder
I accidently deleted the desktop option from the remote control option while trying it out.....
Is there anyway I can get it back?
(It worked and it was cool!)
But now I only have Presenter & Media player..
I really hope there is a way to retrieve it without having to reset my phone...
to anton ,
if you hate that problem of it keep on playing the same songs in that folder , try making a playlist of all the songs in ur phone , and start playing it , that should help solve the problem.
uh derick... i never installed limewire on my phone? I was only uploading some pics and mp3s to my phone from my computer...
still don't know whats up with the stereo widening option where it auto shuts off when you change tracks. plus i've noticed that there is no repeat option. if you go into a folder(album, or artist) it plays all songs no matter what. there is no way to isolate one song and repeat the same song over and over again unless there is only one song in that folder.
the more i use this phone, the more problems i find with it and wish sony had thought through the options before releasing it to the public.
What does the white screen of death mean? I have the motorola slvr and I'm considering changing phones and getting the w600.
appreciate that man, but yeah i know how to do that. that's when the file is a .jar file. the one i was asking before, was a .jar file too, but when u download it from a site, it will be a zipped folder and when u extract it, you will get loooots of files, images, ,jpg, .gif, .wav and i forgot the others, you really cant install them just by extracting it. but i already found out how to solve it, just change the file extension to .jar .it was awesome, coz i have games like, call of duty 2, ragnarok and other awesome games. metal slug 2 too! its really awesome.
Hey Red, for the .jar games you have to make a folder in the 'Other' folder under file manager (or just under the drive on ur pc), and then put the .jar apps in the folder. After that you have to install it from your fone, just open file manager, open to the 'Other' folder and the folder u made, and u'll see the .jar files and u can install it from there =D
Btw I just got this phone 2 days ago and it's awesome, the walkman feature is ez to use, and u can listen to music and use the camera at the same time! The speakers are loud and clear. and the grip reminds me of my old V300 :D overall this is an awesome phone to have... packed with features and it can multitask! i was impressed.
