If your screen breaks your warranty is VOID

If your screen breaks your warranty is VOID

I have this in writing from the Sony service center. They won't fix your screen, even for a fee, so you have to get it fixed elsewhere. Then once it's been fixed elsewhere the phone is considered to be modified, voiding the warranty.

I'm sure there's more to it, what was the reason for not fixing the screen to begin with? and yes, if you get it repaired somewhere else or DIY it will void the warranty

Sony does not fix broken screens. You have no choice but to get it done at one of those little shops at the mall, or in my case, an independent shop inside a WalMart.

let me escalate this and figure out why they aren't offering to repair devices, are you in the US?

Hi @cupboy, sorry to hear about your screen being broken. Slightly frowning Face

Local Support Team is who told me I can not get service from Sony for a broken screen or any other reason other than warranty-covered issues. I should have just thrown the phone out when the screen got broken. I would have come out ahead. I received a survey from Sony. I told them that their products should be withdrawn from the USA market.

I filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission using their website. If anyone else has a problem with Sony honoring a warranty the FTC number is 877-382-4357 (or just file it on the site).

Hi again @cupboy!

I see, thank you for this information!

That is quite different from the warranty terms and service routines in the market where I'm situated.

Now we both know how it works at least, but I completely understand your situation and that you are not very happy with this.
