Hi again @Xperiax1996 and thank you for this information.

In this case, I would recommend that you get in touch with your Local support team so they can arrange a repair for you, as the device will need to be examined at an authorized service centre.

If you have any questions regarding warranty, local service routines and so forth, they will answer this for you as well.

Keep me posted!

Re: I can't register my Fingerprint on sony Xperia xz

Hello there. My situation is kinda more complicated. I have set the fingerprint one year and never had any kind of problem. I have updated over 2 months ago and didn't dmface any problem. Suddenly  without any kind of security changes the fingeprint setup disappeared! In one night. I tried set up a new one and got the message in the screenshot. This message appears just before the setup ends, in the last touch usually. I have created 2 users, in the second one the fingerprint manager is working just fine! Same mobile  different users.... And the main one has the problem! Isnt it weird? What can I do? Screenshot_20190409-014320.png

I hope this is a software problem but nobody can't solve it, whyyyy??????


The error is

Can't read your fingerprint 

Registration will be canceled since fingerprint enrollment time limit reached

Follow the registration instruction and try again

Got same when added second profile - for unlocking main profile it just told me "fingerprint hardware not available", while still working on locking up second profile. Deleted second profile, but same. Deleted all fingerprints in main profile, but now in the very end of adding new fingerprint I get this enrollment timeout error. Sensor test OK.
