Hi all,

I have an Xperia ray on GB 2.3.4 and have a major problem with the screen. Most of the times when booting up the phone, the screen is blank/black but the backlight seems to be working and I can still interact with the display i.e. slide unlocking the phone and can hear the sound as well.

From time to time, the phone works as normal but this issue is there as soon as I decide to shutdown/restart the phone.

Help will be appreciated.

Did you try reflashing stock ftf with flashtool?
If no then try flashing that.

tried all stock ftf's availlable bro .....no luck at all.....tried allmost all custom rom and kernel combinations on the ray development thread.....it doesnt solve the problem......its a hardware glitch and is unfix-able ... NOT a software problem :(

Oh man. I got this issue too on my good ol' Ray. I think it happened because I dropped it. I also lost the blue led on the home button arc, now instead of white it turns on yellow :/

Anyway, has anyone gotten his replaced\fixed after getting this problem? I had the bootloader unlocked with the wire method (s1tool or whatever it was called), then I relocked it after I hard bricked it once sometime last year, I hope they don't notice it and replace mine under warranty.

Man this sucks.

Yaa take it to service centre...
They will not notice it that u relocked ur phone's bootloader...
As u have unlocked bootloader by test point method and it preserves drm keys ;)

try it many times and never worked as it is a hadware problem (heating) and software not the only way to fix it was flash 3.0.8 kernel nAa 02 kernel making this pledge is to make the screen twice and with that I have not always latch-on problems hotter than this the phone

Hello that such, you tried with flashtool and checking the boxes wipe data? maybe that helps you sometimes you get stuck on sony logo not to make a full wipe test of nueco installing it with flashtool and tell us how you did

so if you've tried all you can also unlock the bootloader using the test point method and so putting on one rom without complications
