My phone exactly ... Hi. I have just suffered through this "Sudden Death" issue with my Xperia Z. The phone would not turn on, but when placed on a USB charge would show the RED LED. Would flash up the SONY logo then would show the battery indicator. Take it off the charger and nothing would happen no matter what buttons pressed. Tried to get it connected via Sony PC Companion and was not recognised.Spoke to a nice person on Sony Chat (AMY) who told me the best way forward was a Recovery option from PC Companion. Half an hour later and I finally have a working phone again (although it looks like the screen has water ingress from the speaker but the water damage indicators are all still bright white) will update if it plays up again. So what I this recovery option please ??
