So yeah. It's still blackish. "Water resistance". And the water still somehow leak into the screen.

So water got in? What color is the water indicator?

- White = No contact with water
- Pink/Red = Contact with water

Your warranty is also dead if it's pink/red.

My water indicator is white. I brought it to my country Sony Center, They said the contact from screen to the machine is bad (?) They said that they must change the screen but they don't know if it'll work. I'm in a country that's different from where I bought the phone so I have to pay. A lot.
Will it be eligible if I send it back to where I bought it for warranty?

Yeah, that should work just fine, but be aware that it might take awhile before you get it back. What country are you in, and where did you buy it?

I'm living in Vietnam. I just talked to UK's Sony Customer Service and found out that my phone was built in italy and is eligible to go through repairs. I don't know if I have to pay for repairments or not but it should be free because it's the manufacturer's fault, not mine.

Read my post in Xperia tablet Z forum. I think it can be repaired through pc companion.make sure that it can be set in flash mode.

what i did was : i turned off my tabZ for 2days. Put inside the plastic container with 4 bags of desiccants.. After that, since i can boot it up occasionally, i repaired it through pc companion...hope it helps some of you guys..

So Sony doesn't care about me nor my faulty device. They adviced me to just throw 200$ and fix it here rather than taking responsible and fixing my device from the UK. It's THEIR FAULT. WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY AGAIN WHEN I HAVE A FAULTY DEVICE?

Here's the talk between me and the agent. I'm really mad atm.

The agent did tell you the truth. You purchased your phone in the UK, so the warranty is valid in the UK, and not in Vietnam. They do not cover mailing it for free outside their area (which is logic), so you have to pay a regular fee to send it to the UK. By paying and sending it in a package through the regular mail, you should get some insurance too. I'm in Norway and whenever I send anything as a package (and pay), it's automatically insured for about $1000, so if it goes missing, they'll pay.

There's nothing unusual here. This is why you should think twice before you buy any electronics from a different country than yours, and you just had extremely bad luck this time around. Sony UK can't do anything because you're not located in the UK. It's not as straight forward as you like to think. You can either get it fixed in Vietnam or you can order the parts yourself and do it yourself. I would advice you to not do it yourself though.
