I tried to charge it for around 30 minutes, but still nothing. If else, it gets hotter Now my guess is that this phone is currently stuck inside the android OS itself, with the white LED blinking from his previous notifications.
It just stops, froze, and I must wait until this phone ran out of battery and I'll try to charge it to see if it will revive. My other guess is it's stuck somewhere while starting up and those white LED blinking means something Until then, anyone else have the same problem? Btw, this phone is pure stock. No modification done, not even root. ROM updated to the last version as of today July 18, Maybe try the reset button under the sim cover at bottom of phone If so, then the update must have failed XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers.

Enjoy your working phone my friend, and thanks again for visiting the site and leaving a comment. That sounds an awful lot like a software issue as opposed to a hardware problem which is good as there will be a better chance of fixing it. Try to boot your phone into Safe Mode, this will disable your third party apps and if the issue is being caused by an application, which is highly probable, then Safe Mode will allow the phone to boot up properly without any third party apps of course and you could then go through and remove any apps that may be the possible culprit s.
Applications that have been recently downloaded or updated are going to be the most likely suspects. If you can get your Xperia Z to boot to its lock screen again, instead of touching the screen right away do this… Once you get to your lock screen, briefly press the power key as though you were going to turn the phone off, a screen should pop up giving you a few options such as to power the phone off, Airplane mode, etc.
The phone should reboot, which may take a few minutes, but once it does, see if it will allow you to access the phone properly, if it does then check your apps to try and find any troublemakers. To exit Safe Mode just power the phone off and then back on again. If you are unable to access Safe Mode and are unable to wipe data or factory reset your Xperia Z then your next best option is going to be to use the Sony PC companion to repair it.
Last time this happened to my phone I didn't think to Google a solution!
@Karenoj. Remove any SIM or SD cards from the phone > connect the phone to a wall charger, if the phone its off don't attempt to turn it on. I am facing exactly the same problem on my xperia zl.. (Updated to Only the white light is blinking wont turn on I tried everything.. (Volume.
Ended up sending it away to be fixed which meant I lost everything on the memory and they had no solution for me: So grateful that someone thought to share this! Thanks for the information. I tried the technique after my phone shut down while i was trying to upgrade it but it only succeeded in displaying SONY on the screen and still refused to work. What do I do?
Help out pls. Thanks a lot I've tried to removed the battery from my Sony Xperia C but it is up to no good as the battery was non-removeable.. Can't imagine having to wait until battery drained I tried it and it didn't work: My phone is off and I went to charge it and it wouldn't turn on so I unplugged it and the indicator light is still on saying it's charging but not plugged in!
I can't find anyone who has had this same problem. It is going to depend upon the actual cause but most of the time that issue can be solved in a matter of minutes. Since you already tried the simulated battery pull check out that article and see if it helps. I've tried your simulated battery trick all day.
Didn't work. The red light comes on when plugged into the charger when the power button is being pushed. When it's not plugged in no lights no response. Any ideas what to do next? Sorry to hear that your having problems with your Sony Xperia. From what you described in your comment its sounding a lot like your battery might be malfunctioning. If you have tried to charge your phone all night and have then unplugged your Xperia from the charger and have tried to do the simulated battery pull multiple times with no response then you might need to look into your options of getting a new battery.
Here is the bad part though. The phone will have to be taken apart in order to replace the battery. So if you have owned your Xperia for less than a year and there is no sign of physical or liquid damage then filing a warranty claim is going to be your best option as you can send your phone in for repair and the manufacture can replace the battery or repair the phone and then get you a working unit again. If your phone is no longer covered under warranty then you still have some options but they just are not as easy.
I am sure that you have tried the Simulated battery trick times already but try a few more because I have seen it fix the issue that you are describing you never know you might get lucky on the rd try.
If you have tried charging it with a different charger, have tried charging it through a computer, or a car charger, just to rule out the charger as a possible culprit unlikely but possible , then you can take your phone into a local repair shop and have them try to fix it which can be more affordable then you think or you can try to replace the battery yourself. What model of Sony Xperia are you having problems with? Oh and one other thing… if the red light turns on when you press the power key there is a slight chance that the display might have gone out and the phone is turning on but since the screen remains black it appears like the phone is not powering on.
Try plugging your phone into a computer to see if it recognizes it. If it does and you can pull up the phones information through your computer then the best thing to do would be to backup your phones information to the computer and then instead of looking for a replacement battery consider looking for a replacement display.
Im in the same boat as KGZ. If plugged into a computer. Its not recognized. If i try to charge it from wall, its not recognized.
If plugged in I have to then physically hold the power button down with tape. It will charge for a little while doing that but what inevitably happen is the phone tries to do a complete boot. God bless people like you who put such helpful information for people like us to benefit from. I was about to start freaking out until I read your article, tried it and it worked on my Xperia T, which just froze. I hadn't dropped it or anything, it just wouldn't display anything, and wasn't powering on or off. So thank you very much!
Hi, any advice on how I can fix this problem? My Xperia won't charge. The battery died so it's off but when I plug it in, it won't charge. When I turn the phone on, it starts shutting down right away but I notice that it doesn't show that the phone is plugged in. What do I do??
Sorry to hear that your having power issues with your Sony Xperia. There can be many different reasons as to why this is happening. Voted Undo. Score 0.
Ever fixed something? Share your repair story with ImAGenius. We Are All Geniuses. Most Helpful Newest Oldest. Try removing the battery and dry out the phone plus battery under sunlight if possible. Was this answer helpful?
The battery for the phone is non removable though. So how to remove any excessive water from the LCD or from the internal part of the phone?? Find "Build number" and click 6 times fast on it. You will then get the message saying: How do I fix this problem? Is it a software problem or a hardware problem or both???
