xperia z hard reset

i want to hard reset xperia z because i dont know the unlock pattern. ive tried the hold power + volume up but no recovery menu or anything like that. also when i have tried that i have waited for the 1 vibrate and then 3 vibrates but the screen is just blank so is there actaully anyway to completley restore/reset the phone back to factory state without accessing the phone itself.

Re: xperia z hard reset

you have 2 options

1) try hard to remember

or

2) repair your phone with Sony update service

doing so will delete everything in your phone
