sony ericsson W810i Dead - help

Hi all
New here but thought you may all take pity on me.

I bought a beautiful black W810i on Ebay (Stop laughing that man!!!)

It is dead as a doornail and wont charge - looks brand new - Any thoughts I tried putting a freshly charged battery in - no luck

When you plug the charger in NOTHING happens - no lights or anything - is this somethiong to do with it being a Locked to Orange (Its Orange locked but no sim card ) or is it just dead?
Any thoughts or opinions greatly appreciated
Kind regards
John P

It wont be the issue of the handset being networked locked as u would simply get a message on the screen saying locked or something like that.

As you have tried another battery then it must be the handset.
ither the power management has gone or the jack you put the charger is dirty and needs cleaning or maybe the actual charger is shot. U should find a 3rd party one from your local market.

Theirhas been loads of horror stories from buying handsets from auction sites and really people should be careful.

If all else fails e mail the seller and send it back for a replacement or if all else fails lodge a dispute with paypal and e bay.

I hope u used this method of payment !

Hi
Thanks for the advice
I'm not particularly worried about the purchase from ebay and I bought it as faulty, as it was only a fiver with everything including the box,charger, software etc so I have a good set of stuff when i finally get it working. I am a tinkerer so I am just trying some things - I supose next cab off the rank is to buy a W810i with a broken screen/case and swap the guts over - anyone who has such a beast please feel free to contact me. I have tested the charger and its fine as is the battery I will try the contacts on the phone as you suggest.

Again thanks for the advice I really appreciated the response!!!
Kindest regards
John P
