I bought my xperia ZL 3 months ago, i was very happy with it, got nothing to complain beside the short battery life. Today i just updated to android 4.3 and the sudden death problem came around, just like most of the people here has said, the phone need to be connected to the charger to turn it back on again. I hope SONY can fix this quickly...

My zl phone sudden death after update to 4.4.2.
After updated and factory reset, the phone is working fine until the next day.
Its started with auto shutdown and could not turn on and only can turn on during charging. When uncharged, it auto shutdown again.
Then the next day, it completely dead. Battery overheated. The phone could not turn on at all. If there is still battery power, it will reboot(turn on and turn off) every second.

Dear user that faced the Sudden Death situation,
My Xperia ZL did sudden death last week. No response at all the phone. Can't charge it through Charger. Cannot start the mobile. Press the stop button beside the Sim Card also no response.
I did the following step and Successfully restart the mobile.
#1- Charge the mobile with your PC and make sure there is red light shown up.
#2 - Awhile later, unplug it.
#3 - Press the power button together with the volume+ volume-
#4 - The mobile awake.
Hope this will help.

My Xperia ZL spontaneously developed this same problem after ~4 months of use also. It is obviously a battery issue but the RMA center rejected repair by default because I used the Sony unlocker to root my phone, which advises that using it "may" void the warranty. I guess it is a good way for them to avoid responsibility for an obviously defective battery. Sorry for everybody else who has to experience this problem on a phone that is supposed to be high end.
Anyways I am done with the phone and this brand. it is just an expensive paperweight now. I don't like my nexus 5 but at least I know if the battery decides to take a dump I won't be left with another paperweight. Once my Vaio Pro 13 and Smart Watch 2 break/become obsolete it will be the end of a wonderful decadeof being a Sony loyalist.

also had a sudden death problem! phone was fully charged, and was updated to the latest software. Next thing i know, I started panicking when it wouldn't turn on. Eventually googled a solution: hold power button + up for a couple seconds. Glad that there is a solution, but NOT HAPPY that there is a problem at all!
