Re: My battery gauge is tricking me?

Slightly frowning Face I assume your handset has a different battery issue, and I thought there was a sudden drop in battery %. Apologies that I had sent you a thread for sudden drop of battery percentage.

I suggest you to visit an authorised service centre, or try to update the software by PC companion by yourself. Else you can try hard resetting your phone.Slightly smiling Face

Read these threads, I find similar to your battery problems:

Re: My battery gauge is tricking me?

Hi nick,

If your battery has sudden dropping issue (as described earlier) you may follow this...but Cambodia-Volerk has some different issue...to which an authorised service centre will help. Slightly smiling Face

If you have sudden drop issue..then follow Nabeel's instruction:

http://talk.sonymobile.com/thread/128862

Do it when it is 'ON'... Slightly smiling Face

although the vibration happens even when the phone is 'OFF'....note the battery percentage before doing the procedure, and observe when you switch on. If there is significant drop in battery percentage...your problems are over. If not..try a few times more.

Let us know whether it solved or not ... Slightly smiling Face
