Question [Q] Xperia Play screen is black

Hello all,

I'm having a very annoying problem with my device (R800i). It happens that when I open the gamepad, the phone works normally.

But when I close it, the screen goes dark but the phone continues to work, only there is no light in the screen!

What might be the problem and how could be solved?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, flex cable for sure.
You should order a new one and repair the Play by yourself (I've done it some time ago, thanks to Bakisha, and since my flex has broken again - 3 days ago - I ordered 2 new ones), since it's not that hard.

Thank you both.

I did some research myself and I also think it's the flex cable.

I've seen a tutorial on the net and I think it's a little bit riski doing it by myself. I will try to find a Sony technical assistance in my area. If not I will do it myself.

Do you recomend any tutorial in particular?

Not really, you just have to know how to properly disassemble the Play.
Btw, that's what Bakisha recommanded me to watch:
