Volume down NOT WORKING

Ok so recently I messed up and my phone got water damaged, the stickers under the flaps are all pinky red so i know water has been inside my phone, it is working all fine except now it is stuck in safe mode, it keeps transitioning from problem to problem - first it had water or steam under the screen then i got rid of most of that with heat, then the home buttons and the other 2 on the panel didnt work (that fixed itself somehow) then the power button didnt work which it does now ( again i dunno why) but now the volume down button doesnt work but the volume up does. At the same time, my phone is stuck in safe mode meaning that even if i restart is it still launches in safe mode even when i factory reset it and turned it on while holding volume up. I think this is because the volume down so it is making me launch into safe mode in every time i boot it up. So my question is simply this : HOW CAN I FIX THIS

Re: Volume down NOT WORKING

Heat may have gotten rid of the water but depending how much heat was applied it could also cause other problems to the phone. I think the best thing to do at this time is to contact Sony Xperia support and get the phone evaluated.

Hi MuckMyLife, welcome to the community!


I'm sorry to hear of this experience. I agree with @Phy here, contact your local Sony Xperia Customer Care team ASAP to arrange getting the handset into a Sony authorized repair agent who can assess/repair it for you.
