Re: Sony Xperia Sola : Touchscreen Problems

i don't know the brand of screen protector, but iknow that this problem is not because of screen protector as the protector is on screen since i bought the mobile, and it was working like butter till today morning( 2 weeks), and since morning it very difficult to use.... :smileysad:

also the problem remained whole day and still persisting.....so the condition of hands is also not a problem....as i had also tried to use it after washing hands....

No weight or pressure.....i keep it on my bed.....and as currently my vaccations are going on.....so it's on BED only since i bought it.....and no physical tension or pressure was ever applied on it....

so i don't know whats the problem....??

PLEASE HELP !!!

Re: Sony Xperia Sola : Touchscreen Problems

I got the same problem. I bought the phone 3 weeks ago.

It worked pretty fine on the first week. Then on the 8th day when i woke up that morning its not responding good.

It's difficult to navigate the phone. All the keys not working, not just in one area but all.

And it;s intermittent.

I went to a sony center near my area, they check it and reset the software and it didn't work. They actually check the touch pannel but they didn't see any thing wrong nor any marks that it got wet.

we already tried updating the software but it doesn't make any difference.

I need help. I dont want to have the touch panel replace because it's a major refurbishment and not acceptable for a 3week old phone. is this a software issue? or the phone itself is the problem?

Re: Sony Xperia Sola : Touchscreen Problems

they can't replace my phone coz as per them it's no longer in the replacement period.

They actually opened the phone to see if it got wet. My phone didn't get wet it didn't have any scratch.

They tried reseting the software... they actually advise me to flash my firmware but im aware that it will void the warranty.

They say that it can be the touch panel itself and they can replace just the touch panel... which i think not acceptable for a 3week old phone right?

Re: Sony Xperia Sola : Touchscreen Problems

I had the exact same problem with my phone three weeks after buying it. I returned it to the store, and they sent it back to Sony. After one week, they said it was repaired and I got it back, but the problem persists. It's back to Sony now for the second time.

Can it be related to a battery problem? The battery drain was very large sometimes while doing nothing, and the touch-problem got worse when connected to the usb charger.
