I have had this phone from new for three months, no problems. One day the headphones wouldn't work, I plugged them in, it would vibrate as it does when you connect headphones then imideately vibrate again as if you had taken the headphones out again. The head phones work fine, I have tried with all different types of headphones and the problem remains. I have also cleared the cache and reset the phone, still the problem remains.
This makes listening to music And taking calls on hands free ( which o do a lot because of my job) impossible.
Sent at the phone into Sony. They say I have damaged the phone and this have voided my warrantee. To my knowledge the phone is in pristine condition aside from a very tiny surface scratch on the back. Sony said I would now have to pay £120-ish to fix the damage to the top right hand corner of the phone to bring the phone back into warrantee. As i had not damaged the phone, and the problem was a Faulty head phone jack this seemed quite strange to me.
I queereed this and sent pics in of the phone (that show it un damaged) that I had taken the day of sending it to them. This got the escelletion team involved and I was promised a reply from them in 3 to 5 working days. I have called many times and Am still waiting on a reply from them, it has now been 9 working days and still nothing.
Has as anyone had anything similar? When I call I'm told the escalation team is a in house team and there is no way for me to speak with them directly And I simply should just wait for a reply from them. Does anyone have a number for them? Or could anyone at Sony find out what is happening and get back to me?

I'm very sorry to hear that
Warranty and repairs are handled at a local level and i'm afraid i don't have contact details for the escalation team in your country. I recommend that you contact your Local support for assistance and status in your case.

@rickard hey thanks for getting back to me. I have tried the number in the link you posted and I just get through to normal customer care who know no more than I do. Any suggestions?

my headphone jack stopped working on my Z1... i found it was pocket fluff that had got into the hole and built up inside.. a torch and a pin enabled me to fish it out...
with the Z5 being water proof too, that pocket fluff tends to get sticky and turn to a solid lump over time if it ever gets wet.
always worth shining a torch into the hole and seeing if it looks clean

I would start of with its such a shame that a $900 phone gets spoilt in 3 months was a loyal cusomter of sony with more than 12 phones but now would not buy it anymore and advise people not to buy
The head phone jack keep getting disconnected when the music is playing I have tried all options avaiable in the forum
It happened after the marshmallow update.
When I use the sound about app and redirect the sound to head phone no matter how much you shake the sound still play
If you uninstall the app even if touch the headphone a bit the music stops
PLEASE HELP AND LET ME KNOW IF ITS A SOFTWARE ISSUE AND IF AN UPDATE WILL FOLLOW SOON
