Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S - Auto Reboot Problem - SOLVED!!!

Sony Ericsson Xpreia Arc S is a great smart phone, but it has a minor fault - it auto reboots from time to time.

Great majority of Xperia Arc S owners had this problem with their phone, and the official Sony Ericsson statement regarding this issue was that they noted this fault, but they have no idea where this came from, nor how to overcome it.

This auto reboot can be really annoying since you don't know when to expect it.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S users have been serching for the solution of auto rebooting  problem, and this is what they've found:

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S - Auto Reboot Poblem SOLVED


Xperia Arc S has a fabrique fault - the phone looses connection with the battery, and than it reboots.
All the batteries lay pretty tight in their housings, and althoug it seems there is no chance your battery will loose the connection with your phone - it happens.
This also results in a smaller battery capacity (it discharges faster).

The solution to Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S Auto Reboot Problem:

- turn off your phone
- remove the battery cover
- remove the battery
- put a small piece of paper between the bottom edge of the battery hoousing and the battery (the side opposite of the battery connectors, so the piece of papper pushes the battery towards the battery connectors)
- put the battery back
-turn on your phone

The problem is solved - your Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S will never auto reboot again, and your battery will last a bit longer!

  2. It is probably because the new OS drains more power from the battery. Have you tried our solution? There are thousands of arc s users all over the web that have solved this problem this way. You can find their opinions on every forum that discusses this issue.
    Maybe there are some other cases of auto restart that are connected to the rom updates, but this one certainly helps is a great majority of cases.

  4. There is no other solution to this problem. Even sony has acknowledged this problem and admitted they have no solution to this problem.

    This page is made based on experiences of thousands of people who has solved this problem this way. All of them say that this problem never occured again, after applying this solution.

    Maybe the piece of paper you put is not thick enough. If you have an official version of software, there is no software malfunction that causes this problem. Try to fix the battery as firmly as possible.

  10. You gotta be kidding :| come on!! really? you think that a small piece of paper will solve the issue? We paid for a working phone not for a phone that keeps restarting and you suggest to put paper???????????I've tried all the solutions and none of this work :| it restarts even when I am trying to open an application !!!!!!! or send a text message ... the solution was to remove from the market all the phones and replace them or refund..at least half of the amount :| you suck people

  11. Since I updated the phone stalls or reboots. Sometimes it runs for hours mostly just minutes. Can't find any reason, no one app keeps failing, it just stops even in the middle of a call

    ReplyDelete
  14. First you confirm whether it is software or hard ware problem by Sony service center

    if it is software problem then only please try this:

    just remove android ics (4.02)
    and reinstall android firmware 2.34
    it Really works good

    1. Go to Settings/Storage and check out your phone (not SD card) storage status. Then remove unnecessary apps or any other data and you will gain more storage space. Apps can be unninstalled from Setting/Apps. Just sellect the unwanted app and click on uninstall.

  22. Hi I have now had the experia arc s for nearly two years now.
    yes if was a Spain in the but. Having Ll the problems that have been mentioned.
    but since I started app backup solution, the loss of data was not a problem anymore.
    Also if you UE Google calendar and contacts, that data becomes secure as well.
    As far as the battery is concerned, the contacts are very poor and need cleaning very often.
    Sometimes a specific procedure is the only way to start the phone if the battery is swapped.
    Ie: step 1
    Discharge phone by holding the start button for 40 secs.
    Then wait 1min.
    Next place newly charged battery into compartment.
    Make sure the terminals on both the phone and batty are freshly cleaned using a fibreglass pen brush.
    Tighten the battery into the contacts, by lifting it slightly in and out pivoting the terminals together.
    Finally wait 1min, the press start for 4 secs.
    Providing the battery is fully charged, the phone should start first time, every time.

    Good luck!

  26. I am really fed up with my arc s. I have had two Sony phones a K800i that froze completely & needed a software download to put it right & this Arc S that keeps stopping. I like the Xperia Z but I am afraid to buy another Sony & we are a Sony household TVs, DVD recorder & players Camera`s both still & video so you can imagine my disappointment with their phones.
    My last phone was a HTC, I might try another next time.

  27. Had the same problem but I fixed it in a simple way. Its in the bluetooth. maybe before your phone first shut down and restart automatically, you left the bluetooth on. How I fixed it? in some xperia like mine, when it automatically restart, after the Sony and Xperia showed up, there is still a 10 sec before it restart. What i did is I open the settings and turned off the bluetooth within that 10 sec. after i turned off, it restart but its back to normal. try this solution if you only left you bluetooth on before it auto restart. I just did this 20 mins after I typed this. hope it help to you too. :) :) :)

  29. hi guys. i have a sony xperia arc s. when i try to open/start my phone, it will turn off eventually after the xperia logo appears. it will restart on its own and again, turn off after the xperia logo. this will just repeat and will not start the phone properly. i have to remove the battery to turn the phone off. i had it checked in cellphone repair shops. they told me that my phone's program is defective and i have to reprogram/reformat the phone. is there a way that i can reprogram the phone myself and avoid any repair costs? i can't open the phone so i can't do the hard reset or restore factory settings. thanks.

  31. @shuvo, did this happend after updating firmware thru pc companion? Same thing happend to mine. What i did is downloaded sony updater (forgot the name. DEFINITELY NOT pc companion), install in on your pc. Remove your phone battery to stop the boot loop, then just follow the instructions. Hope this helps. Also, i think gingerbread works better than ics. For my arc s atleast.
