Heres something REALLY weird I just discovered...
I am having the same problem as you with my ZL. I also have an Xperia T that will not turn on because the battery needs to also be replaced.
I decided to do some messing around with the two devices since the battery connections are the same.
What I did was plug my ZL battery into the T, and it worked perfectly. The phone booted up with no issue. It will even turn off and back on with no issue.
But when I plug it back into my ZL, it will not boot all the way up unless its plugged in.
Now im wondering if the issue really is the battery, or something else....
Im still going to order a replacement and see.
Ive ordered a replacement one for my T, for like 9$ on ebay.
The cheapest Ive found for the ZL, is about 23$. But I can buy one from within my country to avoid the long shipping delay for about 50$...
