[Q] Bought an Xperia , It's got the red led -_-
I've searched the forums and tried many different options for hours !!
So , I bought an Xperia S on an auction for fairly cheap.
Went home , wanted to enjoy my new smartphone but when I connected it to the wall charger I got a solid red light.(Instantly)
Never had a Xperia before so didn't know this was a problem , after few hours I disconnected it and connected it to my pc.
Still solid red light but now after a few minutes it would go away. Then after hours of searching I tried some methods.
So when it was connected to my pc and the red light would go away , I pressed Vol + & Power , I got a few red flashes and after that 1 buzz and after 3 buzzes.
After the 3 buzzes I released all buttons and the led would be off. Tried it again then , still no led , after a few times the led just turned solid red again.
Got myself flashtool and stock tft File.
Now this tricked worked for me so far , to get it in flashmode , I removed the battery ( Btw also tried to jump start it with a cut usb chord, got little response from it ) and after
I would put it back and apply the rubber band to the Vol - button. After then connecting the usb it would give me a solid red again but after like 10 mins it becomes green.
With flashtool set up , I did this trick and was able to flash the phone to stock.
From what I've read , you should then plug it out of your pc , press the power button once ( it would vibrate once ,but gives no response after that ) and then plug it into a wall charger.
Now I did that and this time it took a few seconds for the led time to turn red . I went to sleep , and when i woke up the led was off , till now it is.
Ow , I never got a sony logo or a charging logo. Only time I saw something ( Little white light ) on the screen is after I jumpstarted/charged my battery with cut off usb chord.
Should I let it sit in the charger now , and for how long ? And what am I waiting for , the solid red to come back again or ?
Is it possible that there's some hardware malfunction , cause I seem to get leds and response from resetting. In other words , is my phone still safeable?
Should I try to get a new battery or will the same problem persist with it?
I'm not far away from throwing it out the window , but I still believe in this little fella
