Hi.. As we know some of Xperia Z5 users are having a horrible issues with their fingerprint scanner.. For me.. It was like a pain.. I nearly never unlocked my phone using my fingerprint since I bought it.. BUT finally I found the solution and I would like to share it with you to help me improving it or thinking in some thing else !
The main cause of these issues is that in some XZ5 units ( maybe the Earlier ones ) they has a so sensitivey fingerprint, In other words.. If your finger has a little bit dirt or oil it will NEVER unlock!
«The solution»[Finally after ONE year of trying]
All we need to do is to install an insulator on the FingerPrint Sensor but we can't use anything.. We must chose a very thin and clear one.. I searched a lot and finally find the perfect insulator : " Tape ".. Yeah this is our hero! Just cut a nano piece and install it on your sensor and everything should work fine
Fact : I tried to install it on GS6 device and the sensor couldn't take any fingerprints which mean our device has a more powerful sensor so be proud guys :smileysmileythumbsup:
- NOT easy to install ( you need a very steady hand)
- The insulator always gets dirt
- Over days it will start getting off the sensor
Can you guys suggest any other material to use? Or maybe other solutions..

Here's some tips if you're having touble with your fingerprint scanner:
Q: My device does not recognize my fingerprint
A: Try these methods one after the other. Verify whether the problem was solved after each method, before trying the next one.
Q: What can I do to improve the reading of the fingerprint sensor?
Q: How can I unlock my device when my finger is wet?
A: Since fingerprint recognition may be affected by moisture, you should dry your hands before unlocking your device. After swimming or a shower, it may take a while for your fingers to dry completely. If your fingers are too wet for the fingerprint function to work, unlock your device with your backup PIN or password.
Q: Why does the first attempt to unlock my device using fingerprint fail?
A: After you have pressed the power button to wake up your device, do not press it again. To unlock the device, simply touch it with a finger that you have registered as a fingerprint. If you press too hard, your fingerprint may be distorted.
Q: Which activities or substances can affect the fingerprint recognition rate?
A: Any activity that may affect the state of your skin, such as showering, cooking or exercise, can have an effect on the fingerprint recognition rate.
Fingerprint recognition rate may be affected by dirt and by moisture such as sweat, lotions, and oils. The general condition of your skin, such as dryness or cuts, may also affect fingerprint recognition rate.
