Unhappy Z1 completely dead!!

OMG....my z1 is suddenly completely dead
yeaterday i had 60% battery, then i put the magnetic usb cable and tried to plug it in the right way. i failed and my z1 rebooted automatically. I thought this was strange. Then i tried another time. This time my Z1 is completely dead.

i have tried everything, powerbutton + volume up, red small button near simcard, charge for more than hours.
absolutely nothing!!
no red light, no dim red light, nothing!

i am lost!

is there anything i can do, besides bring it somewhere to fix it, i have no warranty left.

Don't get this part: " usb cable and tried to plug it in the right way. i failed and..."

If you connected magnetic charger in a wrong way - your device is most likely dead.

i put the magnetic usb charger upside down and then my Z1 fell out (

"If you connected magnetic charger in a wrong way - your device is most likely dead." is this serious??

Absolutely not, electronics have diodes to protect them from incorrect polarity. This was not the cause.

I put my magnetic charger in the wrong way round several times.
It made the phone turn off, but there was no issues when turning it back on. You "should" not fry the battery by putting the charger in the wrong way round

thanx for the suggestions, but i did that several times. i've tried with the original charger, usb charger, magnetic one.....
my Z1 worked prefect, but now it does absolute nothing! no red light, nothing

and all i did was trying to charge it with the magnetic usb charger

Sorry. But if your phone doesn't show any signs of life, it's time for warranty if you have.

haven't heard of this happening, ever. As said, putting the magnetic charger on the wrong way shouldn't have been able to kill the battery. better get it checked at a sony center. the people there should know more than we all do regarding the phone. goodluck bro.
