Re: Useless fingerprint sensor

I  feel that there is a problem with the coating of this fingerprint module,maybe abrasion will cause problems. Some people say that it will not work after wiping with a wet tissue.

Re: Useless fingerprint sensor

Did someone try using fingerprint sensor in some app, like banking or eBay? I feel like it works in those apps always.

Re: WHY THE *** FINGERPRINT SCANNER IS SO BAD?!

Found a solution....

Fingerprint works flawlessly.

 

Delete all your finger prints

Register again.. 

While registering presses hard on the fingerprint sensor every time you register... 

Keep pressing hard every time you place finger on fingerprint...

 

Once you register... Not it works 10 out of 10 times...

 

Try and let me know..

 

Thank you,

Ck

You make no mention of how many days you went with it working after trying this.  Get back with an update a week from now.

 

Thanks!

Just like restart your phone, The problem can be solved temporary and the problem appears again after a few minutes.

Thought I'd give the "HARD" press that xCKx mentioned a try and did not help me either.

Re: WHY THE *** FINGERPRINT SCANNER IS SO BAD?!

it worked on the First Day every time I used it. Today I'm facing the same issue...

 

the more we use the fingerprint it should become better, here it's getting worse.

 

SONY please address this issue, Obviously, it should be improved through software. just Push the updated for this ASAP.
