Bugs with my xperia S,please help

Hi guys,i have some problems with my xperia S and i have been watching this forum a lot and noone seems to be posting about it.
I bought the xperia with ics 4.0.4 on it and everything seemed to be working,later that day i updated to .200 JB but after that update a new came up in notifications and it was .196(i updated using pc companion).
Again everything was ok but some days after my auto rotation stopped working and usually worked after a normal restart ,it would turn off after 2 or 3 mins again.The other problem was loosing reception,wifi connection and sim card but that always worked after a restart...
Anyway the auto rotation(accelometer) now completely stopped working,nothing happens after restart. I did about 10 hard resets all together (not in a short period) and still nothing. I flashed every JB version using the flashtool but nothing changed...
I disnt root it yet,i think its not necessary.
Now im posting this from ICS .452 and i beg u for help and i hope there is a solution for this

Re: Bugs with my xperia S,please help

How old is your SIM card? does it happen without the SIM card on? is your SIM card a MICRO SIM card or did you trimmed it ?

Re: Bugs with my xperia S,please help

I suggest to repair your phone once again with SUS or PCC and perform a factory reset 

 

Update Service (SUS)

 

 

PC Companion (PCC)

 

 

Bridge (for Mac)

Re: Bugs with my xperia S,please help

Thank you very much but it doesn't help,the reception and sim card is not a real problem i guess it only happens once a day or so.but the auto rotation is really annoying i cant watch videos or use the horizontal keyboard . Maybe this is hardware related?
Before it would work for a few minutes after restart but now like nothing happened, i used the *#*#7378423#*#* and when i click on accelometer it says "this device does not support the function"

Re: Bugs with my xperia S,please help

Well i did consider that and i live i Bosnia and Herzegovina and no sony servicer anywhere in the country.after all the calculations ( traveling and such) taking it to an servicer would cost enough to buy and nexus 5 and of course i do not have that kind of money xD. Thanks anyway Slightly smiling Face
