EF81 problem conserning the Master Reset

EF81 problem conserning the Master Reset

Postby jojo7548 » Fri Mar 13, 2009 3:20am

I have had my EF81 since November and in January I encountered several problems. My friend wanted to borrow my phone, and I let him. He pushed the Master Reset and now these problems apeared.

1. Camera does not work. I can choose the option to go to camera mode, however, it returns back to the closed clamshell screen.

2. SMS messages. I can go to the SMS screen and type in my text. However, when I choose to put in a recipiant, it says its full. It also says that I do not have enough memory even after I delete all the past texts and take out my previous pictures in the MicroSD card. Texts also come from 30 minutes to 6 hours later than the sender sent it.

3. Clamshell buttons. The clamshell buttons work until the backlight turns off. After that, they are unuseable until I open the clamshell.

Please tell me I can fix this problem. I know I put it off until now, but the other forum I consulted with never relpied. Thank you for listening to my issue.

Does the FW matter if I live in the US? What site can I get a FW upgrade for an EF81 in the US? My Variant number A125. Will the Camera come back on? Will I be Able to send Text messages again?

check here:

since you only need English, any FW will do. All of them have english.
Yes, those stuff will be back.

because has it seems, it was due some mods you did to the brew structure that corrupted some important files.
FW installation will refresh it all, factory state.

-> battery charged up
-> install the program
-> launch the program
-> turn phone off and on
-> connect to the cable
-> once the program detects it, press "start" and wait until is done

Thats the problem. When I click on the 58, a window appears and asks if I want to Open it or Save it. I have done both of these and nothing happens. Could the issue be that I have Windows Vista? I got the actual cable that it comes with.

I am sorry, but I do not know what you are talking about. When it comes to computors, I am retarded. All I know is that I opened it and nothing happened. I saved it and I cannot open it.

Can you post a link to a website which I can download that from? I seem to have the 48 and the 58. Also, I cannot change my background pictures. It seems the be stuck on default Star Wars theme. I also cannot change my ring tone or listen to the songs on the media player. Will downloading the 53 fw fix this problem? Is my phone still in factory state? Do I have to unlock it?

Ok. I have tried both of the 58 FW and I received the same message:
1) Your new software does not match your phone.
2) None of software images was chosen.

The bottome bar says that it is ready to Update, however I cannot do anythimg. Also, I did not see a 53 FW for the EF81 on that website.

I thank you for putting up with me this far, SandStorm.

So, from where did you got your EF81?
was it a phone meant for asian market? (usually in the phone model, under the check from *#06# and moving right, might give more detailed info.

I receved the phone in Novemeber and it was sent from China. Is that a problem? The only numbers is see in the phone behind the battery is:
BenQ EF81 U4
S30880-S7800-A125-1

(bar code)
358981 00 159789 6

Don't know if that is of any help.
