My 3month old Xperia m5 suffered with this problem of sudden death. Went for a software update and the issue resolved itself. So try this before going in for a drastic step like factory reset or changing the motherboard.. Good luck!!
My Sony died after 4 days of turning off by itself last night ..can't get it going charged it tried off and volume up for minutes nothing its competency dead what's the story all these sonys just dropping dead
My phone has just completely died whilst charging. Will not recognise the charger. No red light or anything.
So my sony phone just died suddenly while charging... I tried to unplug it then plug it again.. Charger not recognized... I connected it to PC... didnÂ’t work. Removed my sim.. My sd.. None worked. Then I tried pressing the power and volume + button together.. Vibrated.. Sony logo appeared.. It worked. But felt like my phone unusually slow. My phone is Z
Mark, 22 Jun 2016Just happened to mine, held the 2 buttons down for 15 sec, no good, held it down for 2 minutes... moreit is not funny, but mine did the same thing yesterday 22.06.2016 xperiaZ....:( ???=> hang in sleep mode, no buttons work, red light on when put on charger (USB charge dont work - nothing lights up), but wont start normally even when charging some minutes or hard reset mode - holding down power and up buttons for short time (10-20sec).
Actually your system works for me - put it on the charger (not on USB - does not work...), hold buttons for about 2 min, release those and it went alive with charging screen, then power on phone as usual :)
Just happened to mine, held the 2 buttons down for 15 sec, no good, held it down for 2 minutes let go put in charger and bam up it came, fingers sore but happy
I was playing with my phone until I decided to charge it. I pressed the power button (but not intended to shut it down, just to lock it) and when I connected my charger, it wouldn't start, or connect to the charger. I've had tried all of those options (press power button alongside the volume button, but nothing worked out.) what should I do?
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2016If your phone is rooted and has recovery do the next: plug the charger to your phone,hold powe... moreI have the same problem with my Z3 Dual. Has got worse since last night. The only thing that happens now is when I plug it in, the red LED turns on, after about 5 seconds, flashes green for less than a second, goes red again for 5 second, turns off for about 2 seconds and then repeats this cycle. When connected to PC it gives a connect/disconnect notification sound at the green flash but Xperia Companion doesn't proceed to "the next step" after connecting it whilst holding the volume down button.
If I hold the power and volume down when plugged in, sometimes LED flashes blue/purple for about 2 second after being red and then turns off and repeats the above cycle again.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2016I just replied to a wrong person. So.... If you rooted and have working recovery... Plug you... moreMy phone is dead from the afternoon. It had enough charge. Tried all combinations in buttons. Nothing worked. If I plug it to charger..notification red led will glow. That's it. PC couldn't detect it too. I guess I need to go n meet service centre people. Such a defective model they've come up with..too bad SONY..too bad
My Xperia Z2 started doing this after I flashed a pre rooted marshmallow rom. Phone boots, dims (reaches lock screen sometimes) and restarts. Can't switch off phone. Phone went on till it died. If I charge, it turns on itself and continues to restart. Can't boot into TWRP, can't boot into flash mode
Avi Sharma, 08 Jun 2016My sony Xperia Z phone had a sudden death at battery 23%. Suddenly I noticed green and yellow ... moreTo avoid sudden shutdown put mobile to GSM only mode. If directly plug to a power source you can use wmcda. Sony is a very bad company for selling expensive phones that can run only on gsm mode
Its been 2yrs still shut down happens and no sulotion done by sony! Bad company sony!

If you rooted and have working recovery...
Plug your phone to charge,hold power and volume+ till vibrates 3 times then let it boot. If you get to a Sony logo screen,either you wait if it boots fully or as soon as the logo appears and phone vibrates once you hold volume- green led will change to purple and you enter recovery,where you can flash your rom again. If you have no root and recovery then: power and volume+ for reset,let it boot. If it doesnt then download pc companion to your computer and follow instructions. If your phone seems cant connect with usb,post again i keep an eye on this site.
