Default [Q] ZL keeps shutting off: simplified answer ?

after suddenly turning off during skype for first occurance after 13months of usage, within 2weeks phone is useless. next thing to crash was maps, then text and finally as soon as phone loads to homescreen it immediately turns off. the battery takes charge and shows 100%. its out of warranty so just want to know exact reason so i can figure out if its inexpensive solution at repair store or few hundred dollars which means its done. fyi, i cannot do any computer fixes, im not software savvy, would just appreciate guidance prior to evaluate if feasable to get it operating again, thanks !

Are you reflash new rom? Maybe battery calibration not inccurate. You can try battery calibrating

thanks for idea. I wouldnt know how to do that and the fact that the phone turns-off as soon as it restarts makes anything difficult to do. I will use this suggestion and maybe more if there is extra replies to someone who has the ability to do these functions .

Agreed. The ZL's battery has problems. Get in touch with Sony or buy a new battery and change it yourself (which isn't too hard but you must be careful in there. I changed the battery on a friend's ZL and it was glued very well. Took quite a bit of force).
