I showed this thread to Sony India and asked for clarification and seems that they are comfortable at not speaking the truth. They said there is no such problem. What a sad state of affiars. In short, they will never accept there's a problem.

I wonder how it's possible for Sony to develop these rather technically advanced phones, yet be unable to fix issues arising with them.
Perhaps some of the brighter folks from Sony's R&D/product development department could be given the chance to fix the consumer service experience, I bet they got some ideas to address the problems.
In any case, if Sony would just be transparent about these kinds of issues, at least consumers would know where they stand in all this. There's one thing worse than not having problems taken care of, and that is being in the dark about whether this is at all possible.

I have been following this thread from the day i got my ZL. its been 7 months already still no solution frankly speaking i am really afraid to take my phone to service center. 4 reasons
1. they will keep my phone for at least 10 days (considering i dont own secondary phone)
2. even after keeping it for so many days phone wont be repaired (whats the point in taking it to service center)
3. might get a replacement most probably refurbished one (new policy of sony. come to sony center we will screw you)
4. rebook issue with them phone is gone for another 10 to 20 days.
after 5 months my warranty will be gone, and then you dont really care.
so what exactly can we do??

With no faith in dedicated repair shops, nor in the local Sony Support, I'm afraid that Sony's Xperia Care team may be the only way to ultimately obtain a fix. In my view this will take quite some work, Sony addressing the support problem from the inside out.
All my hopes are with Rickard now, who I PMed a few weeks ago with details concerning my case. He would "try to get hold of someone in your market who can resolve this", but with no response I fear the worst...
Shame that the ZL got lots of things going for it on paper, but in reality fails to deliver. And support seems to be unable to solve this appropriately.
The way this is going, Sony needs to step up its game before I would ever consider their brand again. Perhaps if details about the defect were shared, repair centers worldwide would better know what to do, or which component to replace.

yep , maybe i just follow this forum only a little bit
but , i want explain something about my experience using ir remote in xperia zl
i have panasonic tv , and its on remote database right ? .... i try manual setup "in power button" on it ...
i chosee manual setup - other device - next - aim the ir transmitter bla .. bla .. bla ... according on the explanation .... press button i want to learn ..
yeah , it say ir signal undetected but i just push next button until finish ...
finally , i press the power button and my tv is "OFF"
i dunno why its working on my xperia but i try these step on another device that not listed in database and its not working ...
by the way like bovrie comment on the page 9 said "Since the last firmware I've been able to access the IR Remote test in the service menu of the phone (dial *#*#7378423#*#* aka *#*#SERVICE#*#* ). I found that reading IR signals will supposedly report the IR data it receives, yet the allegedly detected IR data seems to change all the time whenever I learn the *same* IR command over and over" ....
it just my experience ... CMIIW
