Thank you euphorics and Thommo for your help! I eventually managed to repair my phone via the procedures mentioned! PC Companion is a great tool! My phone seems to working fine now! So hopefully it wont do it again - but if it does I now know what to do thanks to you both! Luckily I had backed up all my data yesterday and managed to restore my contacts and messages onto my phone. All my photos were safe and sound on my memory card. I hope this thread can now be of use to anyone who encounters the same problem as I did THANK YOU!!! :smileysmileythumbsup:

Hello! My phone, Xperia M is stuck on the Xperia Boot Screen (with the colourful waves). This happened today after I downloaded and installed Xperia Foggy Theme from Google Play Store. I selected the theme and it successfully changed to Foggy but as I went to unlock the screen, to go back into the phone to check my notifications, the screen would not come on. I pressed the power/lock key many times and the screen would not come on. I pressed and held the power button until the phone showed some sign of life and this is when the Xperia Waves appeared. I took the battery out and replaced it to force shut down the phone but the phone wont boot further than the Wave screen. I have removed the sim card and memory card from the phone and plugged the charger in hoping this would help but nothing. I have also tried to connect the phone to the PC Companion but my PC will not detect the phone as the phone wont switch on. So i cannot try the repair option on PC Companion. I have also tried pressing the Power Button and Volume Up Key until the phone vibrates but it does not do anything. Is there anything else I can try to fix my phone? And will it be costly to get it repaired by Sony? Please help! Thank you!
