> In reply to Kira @ 2014-11-01 18:33 from vGBm - click to readSame problem here. I am from Pune too. Please let me know if you get to repair the phone locally. You can order battery online from alibaba.com, it would take some time and then there is painful replacement that you will need to make yourself. Still I think its ok to replace instead of throwing away the phone.

This is design flaw. They should atleast provide replacement battery and charged repair service for such expensive device.
Sony is useless, shameless and I am not going to buy ANY SONY again.

Sony is refusing to repair(its out of warranty) the phone and says that it can only be replaced. I wasted 26000 rs for this useless junk device which lasted only for 14 months.

To all ZL users, please get your phone replaced if you are approaching the end of warranty. I feel that this battery problem would occur at some point of time.

Fro affected users, you can open the battery and connect -ve terminal(refer xda-developer Xperia ZL threads) or buy new battery.

Xperia ZL is a very nice smartphone and has a durable long lasting battery. I have been using it for last 20 months. The battery still have the same performance as the time it was brought. Still it gives 7 hours continuous browsing/operating which I did last night. It is smooth and sony gives time to time updates.yet it does not hang fot a single time though runs the multiple apps. Happy to have this phone.

> In reply to vengat krishna @ 2014-12-15 10:25 from XuZU - click to readFacing almost the same problem. Phone restarts continously untill the battery drains out. If i charge it again and keep it switched off for 2 or 3 weeks, it'll work for about 2 days. Went to a local Sony service centre where they said that Xperia 'Z Series' phones can only be replaced and not repaired (which no one ever mentioned while buying). And since my warranty period got over a month ago, i'd have to pay 80% of the phone price for replacement. Very disappointed with Sony service.

again and again i am saying this after 1 year and 3 months with the ZL
this mobile has no battery issue , i faced the battery darning issue 3 times:
1- when i had an old SD card class 2 and to many songs on it some files has been corrupted and the mobile is trying to index the files which make it daring the battery,removing the SD solved the problem.
2- when i updated the mobile with jelly bean 4.1.3 and has been fixed with hot fix from Sony.
3- i installed custom theme it wok just fine on the beginning but after a while the mobile become slow and there was lags i tried clean up junk files and run clean mater program with no successes then i discover by change that the theme the problem after changing it the mobile become more faster and the batter last much longer.
i am using now 4.4 jelly bean and it wok perfectly
maybe some guys is charging the mobile with another charger this may destroy the mobile battery and the charging circuit.

I took out the battery, pressed power button for 30sec/1min, put it back and phone has started charging. Second time I done the same procedure and charged battery on universal charger, but I doubt it's feasible to do with integrated battery.

I am using xperia ZL mobile for a last 1 year. 6 days before Suddenly the phone got switched off. i try to switched ON. i dint work. then pressed the reset button in the back side. it got switched ON. After 2 day i got the same problem. i repeated the same step. got switched ON. The same day my phone got switched off again.

So i given to the service center. they told if its is a software problem it will take 2 days. if it is hardware it will take 15 days. i told it is ok. yesterday i checked with the service center they told it is hardware problem. it cant be serviced.
it can be replaced by new phone of 80% of cost. i want to service the same phone they told service cost of 50% of that phone.

i got highly disappointed with that service center replay.
Sony phone will work for only 1 year. after that i should through the phone.
Please HELP ME. Suggest me wat to do.
