Xperia Play touch screen not working.

Hi guys,

My xperia plays' touch screen has stopped working.

I Have extended warranty with my provider however before i send my phone away for replacement/repair i am hoping to be able to copy my contacts to a safe location until i have my new phone.

If anyone has some advice on how to either fix the issue or to sync my contacts then i would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Your friendly neighbour hood prawn.

Re: Xperia Play touch screen not working.

Please specify if you have the recent software update.

If so.. You should be able to navigate the launcher with the Playstation certified D PAD and select with the X Button.

Go to the Phone dial pad on the dock and then to contacts> Click menu and there should be an option to back up contacts on to the SD card.

Have you also tried running repair via the PC companion software on your PC?

Re: Xperia Play touch screen not working.

I'm having a similar problem, except my screen will not turn on at all.  It all started when I pulled my phone out and noticed the screen showed everything upside down.  But the buttons still responded like the screen was normal.  It was weird but I was able to power the phone off.  Now when I try to turn it on I do not see anything, no sony logo during startup or anything.  I removed the battery and put it back in, but the screen still will not show anything. It was not in any contact with water, it was just in my pocket earlier on in the day.  Is there any fix for this other than me having to get a replacement phone?

Re: Xperia Play touch screen not working.

I was able to find a solution. Hope you haven't sold your xperia play yet. I have the same problem since I have the latest software, updating is not the solution. I tried everything such as debrand & rebrand the software or firmware, formatted it several times, removed my screen protector & non of these worked. I was thinking to open it for my last resort but it's a big no because you will void the warranty of the phone and it has a complicated hardware structures. I don't trust other persons too that they can troubleshoot it. I bought it abroad so I can't give it back to the retailer.

My xperia play's screen wasn't working for month and one day, when I turned on my phone - usually I turn off my phone before I sleep - a part of the screen works and I was able to unlock it but minutes later the screen didn't respond again. So I come up with a solution and I tried turning off my phone for several days. 5 or 6 days without removing my sim and battery. I was surprised when turned it back on and it is working fine again. Now my xperia play still works well. Hope I helped some other guys out there having the same problem... No money spended..

Re: Xperia Play touch screen not working.

Well since my phone was still under warranty, I ended up just getting a replacement phone.  It was a lot easier than trying to figure out what went wrong.
