Re: Z3C D5803 the notification status bar cannot pull down

Hello,

I had exactly the same screen issue and I thought it was a software problem, but when the unresponsive touch zone was bigger I brought the device to a Sony repair center.

They confirm it was a hardware issue and they change all the screen set (screen + touch). For free because I'm still on warranty.

So, if you have this kind of issue, I recommend to bring the device to a Sony service center.

Kind regards.

This problem got resolved on changing the touchscreen for around 70 $. Now sometimes there's another problem with the proximity sensor.

Re: Status bar/Notification pull down difficult in home screen

Hello. Z3c user here also

For few days the notification bar is not working properly (had to swipe 4-5 times). Not big issue (I'm not easy to get angry).
But from today my bottom menu buttons are not responding in any way (back, home, menu), have to restart phone to get out from photo mode or message screen, etc
I had the marshamlows update few months before, dissapearence of stamina's is a big disappointment. Battery is dying half faster, and have to keep with me an recharger. With last days notification/menu buttons problems is already annoying.
Please fix:
- marshmallow version bugs (notification bar/bottom screen buttons)
And please bring back:
- Stamina mode
- UltraStamina mode

With same problem at lots of Sony z3c users, and no answers from officials - that seems, for me, an intentional impulse to go for z5 etc, for another ~16 months of use and buy another new phone, and so on. 
Well, I'm disappointed to say, but after almost 14 years of Sony(Ericsson) fidelity, I'll have to searh for other brand :/

Same here since the last update a few days ago. In the screen service menu I can't draw in the last 2-3 mm on top of the screen.
Why am I still installing updates? They ALWAYS bring trouble whatever phone brand I use.

Does Sony will provide free LCD repair for faulty touchscreen?

https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z3-Compact/Status-bar-Notification-pull-down-difficult-in-home...

 

lots of Z3C users are suffering touchscreen problem. and mine has same problem. few millimeters from top edge can't recognize touch, so i can't pull down status bar.

 

Sony Korea service center say this is hardware problem and should change LCD.

 

i can't understand why i should pay for fautlty hardware? it isn't my fault. and even i repair my device, it will occur again.
