http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2181763

Black screen

It is a hardware problem. Visit the service center.

Here video:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEPMC51owRI

Phone changes ringtone by itself

Ringtone changing to default:

1. when connect to PC in MSC

2. Don't keep activities is selected (uncheck Settings>developer options>don't keep activities) .

Screen ocasionally turns on and off automatically?

It can make an application. Use the application to detect Air push detector.

It detects such applications.

Screenshots ICS?

Press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons for 2-3 seconds.

Problem Wifi ?

- load the latest firmware

- change the WiFi channel number
- in the name of the wifi network (router) no gap

-etc http://talk.sonymobile.com/thread/31449

Change the DNS server for Wifi:

Go to settings => Enable Wi-Fi => Long Press on the required network => Click on Modify Network => Enable Show Advanced Options => Then change the DNS and then Save it.

Temperatures

For optimum performance, the product should not be operated in temperatures below -10°C(+14°F) or above +45°C(+113°F). Do not expose the battery to temperatures above +60°C(+140°F).

Battery problem ?

Discharge the battery below 50%

Phone off.

Remove the battery for a few minutes.
Insert the battery.
Phone no turn.
Connect the charger (use original charger and cable).
Charge the phone while turned off for about 5 hours.

If it does not charge additional options:
- try another cable and charger
- try another battery

When fully discharged battery, it takes a long time before it starts charging.

:smileyalert: Do not discharge at the battery completely !

:smileyalert:Attention to high temperatures (sun, car, etc)

If that does not work try another battery.

Optimal charging battery ?

Start charge 30-50%

:smileyalert: Do not discharge at the battery completely !

MediaServer drains the battery?

Media server is the indexer, which keeps the info of all your media, whether it's music, video and pictures.

1. The solution that works for many people is to back up your data and re-format SD card.

2. Usually, especially after deleting or resetting the phone will have a high battery media server until everything settles down and naindexuje. Give it a day.

3. Corrupted file (such as an image or MP3) can discharge the battery. I deleted it and BUMS, battery of media servers were down to 7%
eg mp3 Checker program or Rescan Media ROOT

Repair phone ?

You can use:

PC Companion (PCC) or Sony  Update Service (SUS)

:smileyinfo: before  backup

SD Card problem ?

Main Menu > Settings > Storage > Unmount SD Card > Format SD card

:smileyinfo: before  backup

Moisture in the phone

This is the moisture in the phone. It can not be recognized by the warranty:

Apps2sd - a program to install / move applications to the memory card by default where it is not possibleM

If app uses any of the following features, it cannot be installed on the external storage. It's required by Android system.

App Widgets, Services, Input Method Engines, Live Wallpapers, Live Folders, Alarm Services, Account Managers, Sync Adapters, Device Administrators etc.

You can also use Move2SD Enabler (root only).

How to enter "safe mode" ?

Keep vol down pressed when start.

You would see safe mode written on the lower left side.

Converting HD video:

Yes you can use Sony's PC Companion, which includes Media Go.

You can set these video parameters:

Format: MP4

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/127737#127737

Issues to be solve ASAP

After few software updates, Sony Ericsson added "new features" BUT they haven't fixed others

1) ambient light sensor

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/125881#125881

2) Decent Battery life

3) Housing Crack

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/84435#84435

4) Launcher stops responding when you open many apps or heavyapps like Maps, and some games

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/thread/21753

5) OVER COMPRESSED PICTURES UGH, THIS REALLY BOTHERS ME, THEY ADDED FEATURES TO THE CAMERA BUT FAILED TO FIX THIS ISSUE

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/72838#72838

but Sony provides the same sensor to the icrap and they take full advantage of it and take amazing pictures and videos

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/thread/25049

6) wifi connectivity issues

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/thread/14324

7) 3G/H connectivity issues

8) fb updates on the phonebook (I use it sometimes, I want to have the option)

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/125277#125277

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/125276#125276

9) Real Sony Ericsson commitment, not upto 2 years but "AT LEAST 2 YEARS" of updates

10) Music & Video

it doesn't seem to be working, there are a LOT of flaws with this Facebook Inside Xperia

Re: Upgraded 4.0.2.A.0.62

exactly, the over-compressed pictures its an issue across ALL xperias that hasn't being fixed. so it is not a hardware issue.

you can test the Ambient light sensor and you can see that it works so its a software issue as well

Service Menu

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/thread/24534

can you go to your camera and take screenshots of the menus?

Re: Upgraded 4.0.2.A.0.62

Yes, the test works ok.

It does not solve anything.

When you switch the phone menu (anywhere) and unresponsive to light - this problem, all users have ray.

There will be a problem. In my opinion, does not work software vs light sensor
