Default New Xperia Z Ultra not charging over magnetic port

Hello,
I bought a new Z Ultra Google Play edition a few days ago. While the phone is OK overall is does not charge over the magnetic port, even though the battery shows as "charging". Tried on two different genuine SONY DK30 docks - same issue.

Has this been heard of? Is it likely a hardware of software issue?

Thanks!

Hey, I don't have a problem with the phone not charging via the magnetic port, but I have a problem with rotation lock when the phone is charging via the magnetic port. Basically, if i charge via mini-USB port or not charge at all, the phone's rotation lock works perfect. But as soon as I plug in the magnetic charger, rotation lock goes out of wack. Does your phone have this problem?

My phone's running the stock sony ROM, not rooted or anything... I have two different types of magnetic charger (one dock, one Magnector). Both has the rotation lock problem. I'm curious if anyone else experiences this problem and potential solution(s).

It is a known issue, I don't know if it is fixed in the newest firmwares, It thinks it is in a dock so rotates the screen

What about other ROMs? Google Play edition or cm or some other custom ROM? Do they have this rotation lock problem on magnetic charger too or no?

Thanks!
