Xperia Sola screen flickering

My Sola's screen is flickering whenever screen display white in behind, example during browsing or reading, you can try the steps below see your Sola having the same problem or not:

  1. Go to normal browser and at google page
  2. Check whether you can see flickering/white screen behind GOOGLE is keep changing contrast
  3. Try Auto Brightness Off/ON, in my case, on or off still flickering.

Anyone having the same problem? Any solution? or should i send back to change a new phone?

please advise, thanks!

Re: Xperia Sola screen flickering

i think thats the light sensor from the phone.. if you set to auto brightness and your brightness level is low, you will see your screen kinda flicker.. if you notice theres there are a few small circle thing at the front of your phone. if your finger is blocking the circle thingy, the screen will adjust brightness by itself. im not sure if this is your problem but hope it helps. try not to set your phone to auto brightness
