Display Problems and other issue




I received my Sony Xperia V today from Hutchinson 3 Austria. What I first noticed is that the screen has some kind of a problem with bright  / white backgrounds:



- when there are bright or white backgrounds on the screen you see vertical lines. First I thought I have to clean the screen but then I realized that this light grey blurry lines are caused by the display itself. Is this a "problem", all Xperia V devices have? I could live with it if I know that it is not only mine.


- second, when I put brightness to the highest level and deactivate "auto adjustment" my phone still sometimes suddenly decreases brightnes. It's not a soft transition but within a second it jumps from real bright to about 25% lower... Bug?


- last but not least: my Xperia V clatters when it vibrates and that's annoying. Should not be, should it?


Hope that you can help me with my questions! ps: I did search the forum before but didn't find a solution / answer to these problems Winking Face

Best, Christian

Re: Display Problems and other issue

If you experience lines in the display I suggest that you have the phone examined by a service center. Please contact your local support for more information:


When it comes to the brightness that randomly drops to low brightness might be related to the power management settings like "low battery mode". If you have that turned on it will lower the brightness when under a certain percentage.


The phone may clatter a bit when it vibrates or when you move it. This will be the moving parts of the camera (focus) that make the sound. But if you have a lot of clatter the service center should examine that too.
