Tutorial: Fix Xperia C softbrick with red led and no Sony logo
Fix Xperia C Red Light brick
Are you facing that the red led on your device blinks and there is no other signs of life? Then you are in the correct thread, I faced this issue when flashing a corrupted recovery but then I found out a easy way to fix it without opening the device or sending it in to Sony.
The first thing you need to do is to make sure that you have downloaded Sony Update Service and have installed it onto your PC from the link above, if not, do it now.
Now launch Sony Update Service and select Xperia C in the list and then press Next.
Hold the Volume Up button and plugin microusbcable while doing so, if that doesn't work for you, hold power + volume up and plugin the microusbcable while doing. Keep holding button combination for a few seconds and wait for a green light on your phone, if it appears check on
your PC so that it's detected.
Wait while the firmware is being downloaded and reinstalled on your phone and enjoy your working device!
