Two days ago, my Xperia Z was on 1% battery, so I put it on charge. A few hours later, I go back to my phone, which had now turned off. I couldn't turn it back on, and I've also tried all the reset/hard reset ways. I left it on charge a bit longer (which all in all turned out to be 11 hours), still no success of turning it on. I took the charger out, then put it back in, which resulted in the red indicator light to come on (not flashing) for a minute, then switch off. But I still couldn't turn it on.

The battery is non-removable, which kind of sucks.

I've had my phone for about a year now.

I've read about this Sudden Death thing happening to the Xperia Z phones after the new software update, I don't know how true that is.

Apparently Sony has released a software update which MIGHT fix Sudden Death, but the thing is, because my phone is dead, PC Companion (updates your phone) won't detect my phone for update! So how can that even be possible?

Put a rubber band across it so that power and vol up are permanently pressed. Charge it that way for several hours and try again booting it

Look in the other thread about the same...seems like it has more importance than yours.. Hopefully you will get it working

My advice is just to leave it in the charger for some time... And hopefully it will work at some point

I have also wrote in that thread too, just waiting on any possible solutions/methods I haven't tried

I have left it charging for about 4 days now.

I eventually sent my Xperia Z to Sony for repair. I have received an email saying that their engineers could not repair it, and have sent out a like for like exchange handset which I should receive in a few days.
