Re: Help!! Read Error, Try Again!!

In general you should return it to the place you bought it, but if there is some local Sony Store/Center close to you, you can try there too, or at least call and ask them how this works in your region.

When everything have failed already, try to read the manual.

I recommend this card:

I installed it no problems - perfect for Android PLUS it comes with an Adapter to help transfer to PC etc

Re: Help!! Read Error, Try Again!!

Just a thought, do you use a case/cover where you can place a credit card or a similar card in? Or do you have your phone near any of these type of cards? If yes, make sure you don't have the NFC function activated in your phone and the unit tries to read the card.

You can find the NFC function if you go to Settings > More... > NFC.

Hampus you're spot on!!!  I do have a flip case with a credit card slot and I do have my card in there and I did have NFC on and it started bleeping so I went in and turned off NFC and the second I unticked the box the Read Error Try Again message vanished!!  THANK YOU !!!!

Re: Help!! Read Error, Try Again!!

I keep getting read error try again everytime I did anything on my Z1. I have my phone in a case with a card holder where I keep my bank card. I have just found out the chip in the bank card can cause the read error I took the bank card out and now have no problems.
