The battery went flat so I put in on the cradle, the led went red and flashed. It wasn't charging and I couldn't switch the phone on. I tried the mains charger, the led goes orange - either solid or flashing. It still won't switch on. I tried taking out the battery and putting it back in. Still no luck. Help?

Leave it charging on the mains lead for three hours or so and see if it will fire up then.
Otherwise you might have to get a new battery.

OK, I got the red led flashing figured out. It happened to me with a good 50% of my battery still full. Phone stopped functioning, screen backlight was off (screen still there so the phone didn't turn off), the phone did not respond to any thing.

so I took the bat out for 30 seconds and turned it on. it did. I traced my footsteps to what i was doing before this happened. and it turned out to be alot. the most recent was sending an email and listening to mp3s. the culprit I think was having too much going on in the background.

So that red led flashing syndrome has to do with memory management. when you're phone is dangerously low on memory, it stops. In your case, I guess you need to remove a few apps (or startup programs) before the phone can turn on.

hope that's on the money.

I was listening to mp3s and nothing else when the battery died, then It wouldn't turn on. How do I switch it on? If i can't switch it on, i can't remove apps.

Whilst pressing the on button to turn on the phone press the canmera button and the joystick in. This should load up into a menu or a couloured screen. You need to be into the menu, if the menu does not appear after a few seconds then turn it off and try it again. Once into the menu I think it is option 9 RUU recover or something. This will wipe the phone and it should be OK again. Hope this helps...

This process is called a Hard Reset.

I don't know what it is with the WMP mobile version, but it eats up alot of memory specially when you repeat songs. go figure.
