I am facing the same issue like @HappyFlyingHorse, my new buy 1 month Sony M5 E5663 phone sudden death and need me to connect to the charge cord with battery. does anyone have a work around to resolve this issue?
Z3 Dual Sudeden Death, once again, as the common theme on this tread, all combo's of buttons, "repair" via the PC software with zero response. Trip to the service shop, and now without that phone until its shipped off for repairs. Come on Sony, get your s*** together
Hi I had the same problem I would fully charge it but as soon as I try to use it, it would jump down to 80% then die. I tried everything even factory reset didn't work. So took it in to my local o2 store they sent it off for repair. Took a week but got in back and works perfect again and didn't have to pay a thing. Just make sure everything is backed up on sim or sd before taking it in.
Well being an Sony fan for my entire life.now have been facing problems with new sony M5, sim one does not function and the phone shuts down automatically leaving me helpless. I know sony is facing an issue with chip 810. But never has sony made products and sold that ever had problems before. Now seams the brand sony has become another cheap company. Trying to just survive any how selling bad products. Even their services centers behavior is bad.Never again will we ever buy an Sony products. Thanks for the learning "keep up to change "never keep faith in any companyname just check the products ".
My new buy two weeks Sony M5 E5663 phone sudden death and need me to connect the charge cord with battery, after 1 to 2 mins , the phone will be restart again.

omoba, 07 Oct 2015Hello. My xperia Z3 is suffering "sudden death" and this is the first time, I have charged it ... moreMy son's experience had just died. Tried all the usual tricks that are suggested on these forums. But just found one that suggested opening up the flap on the side where you put the micro Sd card and there is a tiny yellow dot. Get a pin (not a pen nib ad they are still too thick) and press it. Phone has come back on and is charging but there is a red light on (think it is normally green when charging) but at least the screen is back on!
Hello. My xperia Z3 is suffering "sudden death" and this is the first time, I have charged it up to 67%, i shuts it down and went to bed and to my surprise, I can not boot it on again...Even, there's no red charging light when I plug it to power cord, it just becomes a very expensive unuseful brick.
I have done any combination of buttons to try to boot it back on (power button + down volume key, power button + up volume key, press + hold the small yellow button near the sim slot, pressing volume down key while plugging the usb cord), but nothing worked.
Now I see that this is a very common issue on many xperia devices and Sony doesn't give any solution to fix this problem. Please I need a help.
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2015Hello everyone, I need your help! Last week I went to the beach (I've been waiting for months... moreI have the same problem with you. After i dipped my phone in the water (freshwater, and i also followed their guidelines in using it underwater) it was still functioning but after 2 hours it just blacked out. I did all the solutions posted in the internet (e.g. Switch and volume button etc) but still it did not turn on. The next day it suddenly turned on but now the screen keeps on flashing and the switch off notification keeps appearing, like the power button is pressed all the time but it does not lock when i press it.
My mobile also having power on issue. First it was working on when it is connected to charger few days back it starts rebooting when i connect power and service center not supporting to repair , any one can help me here

i gave it to service centre

My sony xperia Z went off for like 6 days now and has refused to come on, i hv tried pressing the power button wit the volume button, yet it has refused to on. I really don't know what to do, am seriously missing my phone. Pls help me out.
Hello. My xperia Z3 compact is suffering "sudden death" randomly for the last 2 months (5 times till now). No matter of battery charge (40%, 60% or even 88%), it shuts down and then there's no way to boot it on again...Even, there's no red charging light when I plug it to power cord, it just becomes a very expensive unuseful brick.
I have done any combination of buttons to try to boot it back on (power button + down volume key, power button + up volume key, press + hold the small yellow button near the sim slot, pressing volume down key while plugging the usb cord), but nothing worked. It just came back to life alone after waiting a couple of days....
Now I see that this is a very common issue on many xperia devices but Sony doesn't give any solution to fix this problem. I'm very disappointed with them.
I would like to ask if this is a software issue or a hardware issue, when my phone is 15% it automatically shutdown, if this is a software any way of fixing it.. Thanks in advance.
The part of the problem is that the phone cannot switch off completely. This coming with full battery drainage. This causing trouble with reboot and so on... If nothing helps - the solution is hard! You have to open the phone disconnect and charge the battery manually.
Hello Friends I Found A Solution For This Red Light Flashing and Not Boot Up Problem On Z, Z Ultra, Z1, Z2, Z3 and many more.....
My Self Satish Kumar from India ........I got Sony Xperia Z1 Without any problem before Update......about couple of days ago i got update for my Sony Xperia Z1 for 5.1.1 i updated it at that time itself......and then i kept my phone on charge about half hour......and when i went back to see features of update then i found my mobile was not charging even my notification charging light was not working......but while connecting to wall charger i heard plugin sound.....then from that time i tried what ever i got on net.....even i downgraded my phone software to 4.4 and then plugged in charge it was still not working.......and then yesterday i read a comment......i did as comment says......just try this.....
1) first connect your phone to the wall charger and see if you getting same problem as i got (once you connect then you can see your notification red light will blink 3 times) if you got that then move to next step.
2) Remove your phone from wall charger and press (Power + Volume UP) Keys at a time and you will feel 3 time vibration once done move next
3) connect back to wall charger and then wait for 1 to 2 hours and you will see red light notification will work for 10 to 15 min and then it will automatically disconnect....but keep your eye on your phone once that red light will work and auto disconnect just let it happen for 2 to 3 times and then try to start your phone.
4) once your phone started it will start working but that charging problem and even battery draining will be there to resolve that you have to start in safe mode to enter in safe mode follow below step....
5) press power button you will see shutdown popup then press and hold on power off on screen you will get another popup it will take you to safe mode......your pone will start in safe mode you can see safe mode written on the left down corner......just connect your wall charger and try to charge you will see your your charger will connect and disconnect automatically in few seconds let it be for half hour.....then restart you mobile in normal mode and then charge it for 6 to 8 hours.......it will charge your mobile it will work for 10 to 15 min and will disconnect don't worry and let it be in charge for 6 to 8 hours......and once your mobile fully charge......use it normally until your battery goes below 50% and then next time when you connect to wall charger it will make you wait for 10 to 15 min or half to 1 hour......and then it will automatically start charging normally.......and your phone will be back from hell.....For any query mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org
