@aripel That specific error means that the Sony Mobile Update Engine login failed to communicate with a remote server. Check proxy settings in the Xperia Companion preferences and make sure the computer is connected to the internet, and try again later. In addition, try to see if you can try a different computer/network and make sure that there's nothing in the network which restricts Xperia Companion.

I've been having a similar problem. It has happened a number of times when my battery has been between 30 and 50%. It will power down giving me an out of power message and if I reboot the battery indicator will show 30-50% before immediately showing empty and powering down again. Even a short connection to a power source seems to reset the problem and I can use the phone normally until it gets down to sub-10% when it drains quickly again. This does not happen everytime it reaches this level and may be related to the final 15-20% of power disappearing very quickly.
I have tried using PC companion to repair the software but the problem is still there, it prevented me calling my spouse following an emergency on Sunday and is very dangerous. I will be returning the phone to you for a warranty repair

Hi @Davew1, very sorry about that.
Yes I agree with that decision, the best course of action in your case would be to get in touch with your Local support so that they can assist you in sending it in for servicing.
