Issue with my Z2 (acts up on USB)
I tried to do a search but didn't come up with anything entirely on point. My issue is when I plug my Z2 into a pc it goes crazy. A whole lot of lag, and any program I use constantly crashes/refreshes and the screen becomes very unresponsive (i.e. if im typing a text, the keyboard drops down and back up every 2s, or a website will flicker and reload, games will load then crash and reload). Eventually the screen turns off and won't come on again until I remove the plug. It also won't charge off the dock charger. It pops up a msg saying battery is draining faster than it is charging. Here are the the things that lead up to this:
1. I was trying to charge it at work with a sony magnetic charging cable ( I hate opening the flap), and it wouldn't register the charger but the screen would come on when connected. It was previously working fine up to that point with the charger. So I was messing with it to see if the contact points weren't touching and the whole phone shut down. I couldn't get it to turn back on until I got home and used the wall charger, everything else just made the LED flash red but not respond to power + volume up or down (which worked after putting on the wall charger for 20m)
2. I got the OTA update for .402 this morning. So when the initial crash happened I was on .69, but I never tested it on the USB before the .402 update. I've tried a few different USB cords, including the one it comes with. Tested the dock charger on both .69 and .402, neither worked. The charging icon just flashes.
Going to try a repair in PCC.
