Xperia M5 screen flickering

Hello everybody,

I bought an Xperia M5 just a month ago, and I can't use anymore it because of the flickering screen. I noticed that when I cool it down (I use water to stop the overheating) the screen works for some minutes. I don't know what I should do to fix this problem. Please let me know if you had faced the same problem as me. Should I replace the screen or just forget about the phone ?

P.S : The Xperia M5 isn't available in my country so I did ask a friend to buy it for me from Spain, so I don't have any warranty and we don't have a Sony center in my country

 

Thanks in advance for your help

That's a hardware issue, ocntact your Local support, or in this case, you will have to send it to Spain.

The problem is that my friend doesn't live there anymore Slightly frowning Face
I'm just wondering if replacing the lcd screen will fix the problem, I found a screen replacement on Amazon and I'm hesitating to buy it. 
Thanks for your feedback

Unlikely, it's probably the motherboard.

Re: Xperia M5 screen flickering

Then I should forget about it. Unfortunately, it'll be my last Sony phone.
Thank you very much for your help
