    This sounds like the dreaded WSOD (white screen of death). This can be caused by corrupt firmware. It happened to my daughter's W600i. I had the phone flashed with the latest version of firmware. Also try removing the battery for a few minutes. Have you tried updating the phone with SEUS? Search Google and /or try other sites like howardforums.com, sonyericsson, topsony, etc. Your local cell phone shop may be able to reflash your phone for you if thats what it needs. Also, if the phone is less than a year old, you may be able to get SE to do a warranty repair for you. Good luck.
