Re: Sony Xperia Z - Dead, won't turn on, won't charge, PC doesn't recognise, led doesnt light

Not really sure if i did everything right but at the end it worked for me!

I detached the SIM and pressed the small yellow button a couple of times for 5-7sec and i turned on my phone!

So i can say it works for Sony Xperia Z5!

Thank you Slightly smiling Face

I HAVE EVERYTHING ON MY WONDERFUL SONY XPERIA Z3 PHONE,    I use it every day for photos of nature at work - it carries history, memories and its just the best phone

It works....

It really works

Thanks a lot

Ive think that i should throw my old Z3 away because my phone wont charge, undetected by computer, just like a brick after my battery drained out.

And after doing your instruction, my phone worked normally like before

Excellent advice. First followed youtubetip - tryung to reset battery yellow tiny button by repeatedly pressing. No effect. Press and hold for an amount of time made it!

I tried everthing in this forum and nothing helps. On the end I was able to resolve problem. So i remove back of phone and disconnect battery (well the back of phone was damaged anyway). Then i was able to use sony pc companion to repair software without battery. After that phone reboot and work normaly till moment i connected again to charging. It all start over - dead device, red light, no reaction. So i remove battery again and repair software again. Looks like the problem all the time was damaged charging port which in some moments of movment was making device to turn off and bahaved like like completly discharge. So for now i order magnetic charging cable and new back of the phone. All cost 6 euro with delivery. Phone is fixed for now and working normal. Hope that will help sombody if nothing else helps. Good luck all
