If your xperia play (Doesn't matter which model, it affects all plays) is getting this white screen here:

The problem that you are facing is a busted flex cable. I'm posting this thread because I have seen in the past week at least 5 people ask what the white screen is, and how to fix it. Here is a video on how to take apart your play: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3n5ZfkqhzE and here is a link to where you can buy a new flex cable: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Flex-Cable-R...ht_1547wt_1185

The only way you can avoid the flex cable damage is to keep from sliding your gamepad in and out all the time. So basically, just try to do it if you are actually going to be playing a game, not just something you do because you are bored.

I hope this helps anyone with that problem!

Not necessarily. Just don't do it too often. Mines lasted me since june 2011 so far.

Basically It's every time it slides. Just don't sit there rapidly opening and closing it.

I have that problem. It still works perfectly when I open the gamepad, so I don't care.

I'd order a new one soon, because eventually it breaks with it open too.

Unhappy
i have a different problem
first my screen would come on but the phone was on and working etc
but the screen stayed black
if i kept pressing power on button or the hardware keys it would come back on sometimes
or if i restarted the phone
but now the screen wont come on at all, i power the fone on and it vibrates
and then it vibrates again and power buttons goes blue for a short time i think to signal that doom kernel has loaded and that u can go to recovery
but that it.
phone is dead

Wow, this is a huge problem. Is this happening to a lot of launch-buyers?
