Always kept shutting down, even at 100%. Then I couldn't get it to turn on with the power button; that is, until I plug in the charger again.
The Sony Helpdesk asked me to install the PC Companion, install the Support Zone, and update the software. This was possible because I could still turn on my phone whenever the charger was attached. So far I haven't had it shut down just yet, but it's only just been a few hours. If it becomes stable for the rest of the week, I won't send the phone back to them for hardware replacement. :-)
Got a new Sony z3 Compact last April 2015. Really am happy with the phone until it went into Sudden Death. It happened 3 times now. The first time I got it to boot back on just by pressing the power button, but it corrupted my sd card. A week after, it shutdown again by itself (at almost full charge of battery). I have to do a number of combination of button pressing (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) to try to boot it back on. It did eventually after a left it on my desk after a few hours. I factory reset it afterwards then repair it via PC Companion. Now it has the Lollipop update and after a week it died again. And not responding to any of the steps I have done above also no response if its plugged in to a charger. No LED light whatsover. 24hrs now and Am still waiting for to boot back on and if not, I'll probably send it in for repairs. Wish me luck.
My xperia Z1C went dead after a faulty charging cable did not work. The phone indicated it was charging but it was not. The same happened when I charged my Samsung S3, indicated it was charging but did not. I found a working one which I tested on my Samsung S3 and tried it on the Sony phone. It did not work. I tried connecting the cable using the power and top volume button, the lower button combination,the power button only ,the up volume button only,the bottom button only, the red off button next to the sim card and each time I would connect the power after those buttons were pressed. I then did all those combinations with the power connected. Nothing.I waited about 3 hours and connected the power and it worked. Weird.

Hello everyone, I need your help!
Last week I went to the beach (I've been waiting for months and months to try real pics underwater!) and with all the claps closed, I took pictures under the SEA water with my Xperia Z3... Um silliness... (don't judge me) like 10-20 minutes later, my phone started to restart(reboot), yet I was not worried, such things happens, but a few seconds after it had restarted, it went off and restarted again. Later on, it was written "SONY" on the screen and it finally and truly went off. I feel really embarrassed and deeply sad, I really love my phone and miss it. It's been 1 week that my brother and I tried to reboot it. We tried EVERYTHING. Fortunately (?) it was showing some signs of life. We connected it to our PC and rebooted it, by pushing Power button+Volume button and sometimes it was vibrating/ charging but during a few seconds only and that positive sign only happened for a day.
Until now, we keep on trying but nothing... Please help me!
z3 is dead. Why is sony punished his user. Why is sony punished his user.
xperiaz3compactprob., 24 Jul 2015Hi!! Guys... i have a same problem here my xperia compact suddenly turn off after charging... ... moreHello, have you already solved the problem? I have exactly the same experience..
Hello guys, I do need your help: My Xperia Z3 compact got suddenly death. I have read solutions and tried PC companion repair, charger for long, charger for short, many push and hold of the buttons (power, volume up, volume down and combinations), the yellow button under nano SIM, magnetic charger... but not any single response, neither display, nor vibration ever,not led indications and not device detected under PC USB link. Any suggestion? I am wondering whether there is any PC flashing or repairing tool, without phone link detection, that would be my way out of this annoying issue. If you know, please let me know, I like this Z3 compact a lot and don't want to be disappointed.
