Flashing screen

Hi,

Today I decided to take my phone info our set-up Pool. After all, my Z5 premium should be waterproof. But when I got out of the pool, it didnt respond. So I rebooted it (Power button + volume up) and when it came back it didnt respond to touch. Then I rebooted it again and when it got to the login screen it finally responded.

But it screen is flickering ever since. This happens randomly. It happens with autobrightness on and off.

Anyone knows the answer to my problem?

The Xperia Z5 Premium it's water resistant, salt and/or chlorinated water will damage the rubber seals, contact your Local support and request a vacuum test, that will prove who is at fault, if either you have a defective unit OR if you didn't close the cover and / or if there are cracks and/or physical damage to the phone.

Re: Flashing screen

Thank you for your reply. Since my Z5 has only one cover (sim and sd bracket) this then should be the only think to worry about. And it was closed at the time. I just figured out the vibration also stopped working.

Next monday I will try to arrange this vacumtest.
