I am on my 3rd new replacement experia Z now and don't think this one will be any better. Its seems to all begin when it done the latest system update. Now am having to rebot hard restart and full factory reset every couple of days. Somebody needs to admit that there is some serious issues with the software and do something about it

This all happened when I tried to charge my Xperia Z when it is 40% and suddenly it went blank.
My Xperia Z is not turning on, led flash is blank as well when I put it in the charge though I tried hard reset,charged the phone for 3-4 hours and tried everything that I know.
Is there anything I can do to make my phone work normal like before?

same problem tried all the usual that's been posted then I noticed when I tried to connect to laptop nothing happened so I have to send the phone back but last shot I tried it whith my old usb cable and it made a bleep so I went and tried with my old charger and hey presto it started up and is charging at the moment so it might not be the phoneBUTthe charger could be the fault because they say only use the charger that comes with the phone good luck worth a try
