It goes through the update and the screen works again...

My Name is adeel, I am interested to buy w960, but I came to know that the touch screen generally makes problem in this model and people preferred G900 over this phone. I am confused which one to buy, I prefer walkman series. Do let me know if there are any issues with the touch screen, and how much sms inbox capacity is there? is there any sync option to laptop for sms or save option, Email me on my hotmail email@example.com with the subject w960, waiting for your responce,
thanks and regards
In putting movies or videos to the W960, I highly recommend the Allok Video Converter to MP4 Converter, just type this on the google search bar and download the trial version then search for the forums where it has the license code and you'll be able to use it full version for free with high quality converting capabilities...
I just got this phone and it's totally awesome, I would be willing to answer any question that you will ask related to W960...feel free please....;-)
thanks for you feedback. right now, i am using mp4 format, converted to 1/3 of its original size. Quality remain good.
Haven't try Divx yet but i'm sure i will.
Thanks a lot fellas
If you're lucky, then dont forget to recalibrate the screen. Control Panel>Other>Set-up wizard.

Along the process of software update, so with reboot, you need the 3 softkeys that works only with the touchscreen. The sidescroll's "OK" represents only the middle softkey.
This sounds crazy, but it works for many who got same problem. Take out the battery, put thumb pressure at the back of the numpads. Then, power up your phone. If it wont work, then you really need to bring your phone for a repair.

Download the Sony Ericsson Update service from their website, install the program then follow onscreen prompts. It's really easy, but make sure any contacts are stored on your SIM and any media is stored on the 8gb flash memory because your phone memory will be wiped clean. Just to clarify, coz I got a bit confused at first - any content stored on the 8gb media memory is absolutely safe...
how do you make mp4 from HD vids without shrinking the latter to 240x320? i want to have the two black bands at the top and bottom of the video (due to the preservation of the HD ratio) instead of having a compressed (longitudinally) one.

Thanks to every one.

What's the best way to fix this?
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2008Nothing changed man....it stays as it's with last added items at the end of menu :(((((Sorry for that, i didnot try it before posting. Anyway, use Swiss Manager Pro. It has ascending descending option. I just tried it this time. It should work perfectly.
Or, u could use MPEG4 Direct maker, i am using it, it has worked for k-500, k-750, k-770, w880 with respective resolutions, make sure u selct the right resolution (the resolution that matched your mobile screen's resolution) and u can further select the quality of audit and video etc. i have used it to cut from dvds, vcds and other formats, it works great
convet the video for mobile and enjoy
guys, use total video converter . its the best converter . select mobile video , then phone model resolution . its really great, try it..!!
mp4 and 3gp are ok for films on the w960 it all depends what file size as ive noticed. got over 20 films on phone at average 300 meg a piece. put new firmware on phone today seems alot faster. make sure you save all contacts to your sim tho :).
maklampir, 06 Nov 2008Hi SE fans,
3GP format is very poor to me.
would like to find out,what software we can insta... moreYou can try with avi instead or mp4
I Think both of format can be used.
But when you are using this format, you can not just used it just direct source, atleast you must convert them first, cause there are problems with codec and resolution and screen of this mobile phone
