Does it reboot without the SIM card?

Re: Red Notification light then reboot

Hi, I dropped my Sony Z5 in a shallow sink while brushing my teeth, the phone has been completely submerged in water however I imideatley took it out. It was working fine for a few minutes then it hard restarted. When I turned it on I went to charge it and the charger didn't work. I tried multiple times with different cables and sockets. The little battery left was used by the phone to come stabtly reboot occationaly giving me some access to the OS but only for a few seconds before rebooting. Now when I plug the phone in it doesn't charge however it does turn the screen on. The Sony logo appears and the powered by android. The. The tool bar at the top of the screen and the android navigation bar but the rest of the screen is black. A few seconds after it resarts, with 4 red lights flashing. Somerimes it will say starting apps...

Re: Red Notification light then reboot

I always experiencing red light notification then turned off when it freezes because the app crushes. I noticed that it became more frequent when I updated my z5 dual into nougat.

@Sam1997

I also experienced that Sony logo but wont boot, when I submerged my phone into water. When it was 1 week old, I am totally freak out. Because I cant send it to service center since I bought my phone outside my country. What I did is open its flaps then a little blower on its body, and I put it on a plastic bag with rice with silicon gel for 1 day, then it worked for me. But I suggest you to send it to service center

Re: Red Notification light then reboot

I am very new to smartphone and I was used to turn off  my phone before I went to sleep or charge it.

One day, about 2 weeks after purchase, there was red notification light then reboot. After reboot, there would be red notification again in about 3-5 minutes and reboot, and loop

I tried to browse some solution, and then I did factory reset.

Fortunately, that time I hadn't installed many apps yet, so I didn't have to reinstall many apps.

It's fine till today, still wondering why though,

 

 

PS: I have stopped turning it off, fyi

Re: Red Notification light then reboot

I have the same problem too and it is driving me mad. 
However my phone seems to boot normaly after removing the SD card, however, it stays on for about 5 minutes and then reboot again. I tried removing only the sim card but it kept rebooting. I do not know what the problem is, so I will try using software repair via PC Companion.

Re: Red Notification light then reboot

Happened once recently on Premium Dual SIM... I didn't notice the red light, but the screen had a pattern I can only describe as plaid... Fading out slowly. Held power + vol until phone restarted. On Marshmallow, not Nougat. All I can guess is a memory leak on latest Google Play Service???
