How did you flash it? If you were using PC Companion or SUS, I believe the warranty may cover that.
Otherwise, let's see...

According to Google search, the Qualcomm CPU has a built-in USB download mode, which is the "Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008" that you see. When the device fails to boot it will enter this mode.

Perhaps try to enter flashmode?
  1. Pull out the battery and wait for about a minute or so.
  2. Insert the battery, close the back cover, then hold Volume Down key.
  3. Insert USB cable and wait for the PC to detect it.
If the PC detects it, then flash (again)!
If the PC does not detect it or it detects as "QDLoader" again, perhaps try to pull out the battery and wait longer...

If it keeps entering "QDLoader" then your phone is really hard-bricked. It may still be possible to reflash, but we don't have the drivers and files, so just send it back to warranty, whatever.

* Just by the way, I think you can also enter the "QDLoader" mode by pressing Power + Vol Up + Vol Dn?

Hi I got a similar case :/ I was partitioning my sd card with Aparted but as soon as I turned off my Xperia M to reboot it it got bricked and hasn't been working since. Cant get it to into flashboot mode or flashmode to flash the original firmware. No lights or buttons are working although when I connect it to my pc it detects it in usb but not as the phone itself. Is there anyway at all I can fix this. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

For everyone with the brick situation, do you have a locked bootloader?

I know one user said they tried the volume down+insert USB cable into the computer, you did try this with PC Companion ready to repair the software?

Sony Update Service restores the bootloader on locked bootloader phones, true? If the stock bootloader is corrupt somehow, SUS could repair it.
