Blinking Red Light Xperia L1

I've had my Sony Xperia L1 for over a year. Last night it died, and when I connected it to a power source it didn't recognize it was connected to one (no solid red light). I tried different things such as cleaning out the connecting parts, using a different charger, using a different wall socket, but it still wouldn't charge. I went to sleep hoping it would recognize it during the night and charge. When I woke up, it was blinking a red light continuously, and still not turning on. When I unplug it, the red light stops. Please help!

Did you dropped the phone? exposed it to water?

No, not recently. It's been dropped before, but never exposed to water. It was not dropped anytime before this. I was just trying to charge it.

I think that you have to send it in to get inspected. >>> Local support

Re: Blinking Red Light Xperia L1

It’s just a charging problem. Most probably caused by a faulty charger or an incorrect amperage on the one you currently use (Xperia l1 uses a 2amp charger).

Hi, no it's not, it's been back twice and each time they've had to change the main circuit board. Spoken to a few independent repair guys I know and apparently it's quite common and they just have to swap the circuit out too.

You may as well get a new phone because they are so cheap it’s not worth replacing parts on them
