P800 SyncStation Connection Problems

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.ericsson (More info?)

Hello all,

I've searched over the net for an answer for this problem and hopefully it's a
common one that some of you have experienced.

I have a Sony Ericsson P800 with the SyncStation that came with it. Everything
works the first time I boot my computer. I sit the phone on the SyncStation and
I get the little phone icon in the system tray. However, when I take the phone
off the cradle and walk around for a while (do what I have to do) then come
*back* to the computer and place it back on the SyncStation, the software fails!
And, it's not the connectivity software (because the Connectivity Link icon says
that my phone is connected) but basically I don't get that phone icon anymore
and opening the "My P800" link on the desktop says that the phone isn't connected.
Opening up the Task Manager shows that there's a program SCRFS.EXE that is
taking up 99% of my CPU but it's not doing anything! I heard a suggestion that
this could be a firewall issue but disabling my firewall did nothing to help either.

Does anyone have any possible solutions? Thanks in advance,
Nick.

    A couple of ideas, as I've experienced the same thing with my P900.

    1. Make sure that you've given "Allow" permissions to all the SE/Intuwave
    modules in memory, i.e.:
    audevicemgr.exe
    CONNMN~1.EXE
    mRouterRuntime.exe

    2. Give it time :-) The other day it took a whole 5 minutes for SE data
    suite to find the phone after sitting the bugger in the cradle (I timed it,
    that's how sad I am :-D )

    3. A last resort, this: Install mRouter3 Beta, which used to be found here:
    http://www.intuwave.com/index.php?page=105 but has now been removed. I have
    downloaded it for use with my old Siemens SX1, so I can send it if you'd
    like...as I say, this is a last-resort, as you'll run the risk of conflicts
    with mRouter 2.0, which needs to be removed prior to installation of 3.0
    beta.

    Hope this helps.

    Okay, how do I do that exactly?

    I'll try that now :)

    Okay, I'll keep that in mind - Thanks for the great response!

    Sorry, a little badly phrased on my part there :-) what I should have said
    is ensure that all these modules have, in your firewall, permission to
    access the net. How you do this depends on your firewall, of course. I use
    Sygate, where it's simply a matter of getting the spplication/connection
    window up, right clicking each SE-related prog. then selecting "Allow"

    Yeah, I thought that's what you meant. The problem is though (I'm using Windows
    Firewall) that the SCRFS.EXE program works absolutely perfectly the first time I
    sit the phone on the cradle but the second time it freezes and uses up 99% of my
    CPU!

    I don't think it's a firewall issue either because I did try disabling the
    firewall but to no avail :(

    Thanks for your help though - greatly appreciated!

    Nick.

    I have the same problem: first time after reboot, connection is okay;
    second time I try to connect is unsuccessful. Tried calling Sony and
    looked everytwhere for a solution but none is available. (Other forums
    indicate the same problem but no solution.)

    I do however believe that the problem is with the PHONE MONITOR port
    which seems to enable itself no matter what I do with that port using
    the control panel/phone monitor port control. I can disable the port
    used by the Sync Station manually but as soon as I reopen the Phone
    Monitor in control panel, the port is re-enabled.

    When I spoke to one of the better technicians at Sony about this, she
    said that indeed the Sync Station port in the Phone Monitor should be
    DISABLED for the Sync Station to be seen by the PC - otherwise the
    Phone Monitor "steals" that port, pre-empting the Sync Station
    connection.

    Tried everything including changing the enabled value of that port in
    the registry to 0 - but it changes back to 1 as soon as I look at it
    again. Something (WHAT???) is changing that value.

    If anyone has a clue, please let us know!
