Re: Screen goes black when making a call

I may have found something of interest for all of us having the black screen issue.
I've downloaded 360 security app.
It seems to have sorted the issue today if it changes I'll let you all know.

Re: Screen goes black when making a call

Hey don't know if it's the same problem but my screen goes black too, but I noticed the screen sensors touch pad may look like it's flush to the phone but the glue has separated so the screen is not fully connected. When I pushed down on the corner the black screen went and I could use it like normal. I would maybe give your self a call then press around the edge of the screen to see if anything happens, if it does then you may need to either reheat the glue and push it down or replace the sensor. Hope this helps.

Just realised that someone has already notices the problem and added extra glue on page 18.

Re: Screen goes black when making a call

I can confirm that pushing down the top-left corner mitigates the problem completely. It can be domenstrated during proximity-sensor self-test.

The top-left corner is not glued down properly or something, but the top-left corner of the screen is separated from the phone's body.

Re: Screen goes black when making a call

Update the android to 6.01 and the screen blank... Because not in guaranteee period anymore , the sony service center would charge me if it need to be fix by them... 

What a horrible service from sony...

This would be my last time of buying sony cellphone after several time have many dissapointment case. Eg fixing screen for z3 cost 200$... Omg the phone price now isnt more than 180$..

Re: Screen goes black when making a call

Hi, same issue on my Z5. Did the test(earspeaker) and noticed it was constantly vibrating. Investigated further and found screen and covers were dirty. A good wash sorted it out. Thanks.
