Hi, my Xperia Z is dead after it got caught in water. I tried to switch it on but I saw the LED light blinking a few times, after that whenever I pressed the ON button, the LED light no longer flashed. I already tried drying it with hair dryer and rice treatment but to no avail. Is there a way to revive my phone? Thanks in advance.
Hi, my phone (3 year old) got caught in water, and I tried to dry it by putting it in a rice bucket and using the hair dryer, but it still cannot switch on. The first time I tried to switch it on, the LED light blinked a few times, after that when I pressed the on button there was no longer any light. Anyone know what to do? Thanks in advance.

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.
