i had same problem, i checked thought all was good forgot until my warranty ran out then realized it 2 days past my warranty :( and btw the screen protector removal idea kinda worked but still a tint in places :( not happy !!!!
You have a 90-day warranty?

That doesn't sound right...usually it's 1 year. Which country you are in?

Ok, bottom line, how can I check if my phone is AAAB or ABAB or whatever ? Where does this label stand ? I need to enter some code on the phone or on the box/device ?

I have sent mine last week for a replacement because those bottom 3 LEDs were bad, left one had yellow/green tint and other two (middle and right) were normal, white/purple.

I really dont get that Sony philosophy, Samsung and HTC are killing every Android manufacturer and they make the phone with too much faulty parts, and hardware parts, great way to promote Sony without Ericsson and attract new buyers to spend their money.

The big white label is inside the back cover.

The four-letter code is just below "LT26i" and above manufacturing date.

Ok, tnx, I will check it ass soon as I get my replacement because they told me that they will not repair those LEDs on the bottom and it was only 1 day old when I returned it.

yo guys can you check your XPS and tell me are there any backlights for the bottom of the screen?

i just checked mine with a white Background and i dont seem to see any for the bottom part. I see backlights for top left and right. I also notice a few blacked out lights on the right hand side.

if the bottom part doesnt have backlights then that explains why the bottom of the screen is a bit yellow gradient?

just received my 2nd replacement phone (from O2)

AAAC CB5 Touch Firmware Version 7
12W10.. ..

unfortunately..


also the phone battery was completely dead,
so dead, that even when I plugged it in the charger the on button
didn't even activate the battery charging icon screen..

only after about 10 minutes on charger was that able to appear,


does anyone know when the battery charge lost has gone that far, does it permanently damage the battery ??


(oh well, another few days of intensive testing ahead.. ..)

Got replacement today, ABAC version, screen has no yellow spots for now and I have noticed that this one has a lot better and "whiter" white, last one had a lot of yellow in it. I hope that this would be my last and perfect Xperia S.

Latest news i think sony are sending out replacement because my status has changed to unit exchanged - awaiting testing and imei out has changed hope they send it quickly.

Just checked the status of my repair & i have noticed that the imei out is different than the one i sent in?
Does anyone know what service they use to return the phone (curious as it says complete awaiting collection despatch)

Okay, I'm sick of the yellowish screen gradients and the unresponsive capacitive buttons! So I'm sending it back to the seller and taking the HTC one X! :D

Shame on Sony!

SO, Sony are replacing phones & not screens. I have confirmed this with the repair status being repaired awaiting collection for return & the imei being different!!!
Sony have really done me a favour as i purchased my phone from ebay and was worried after reading reports of some phones being blocked after purchasing from ebay users (Replacement scams)
Yeah, GO SONY!!!

Heat it up so much as you can.
Throw it in the oven :D Sure it will work :D

You can try stres test, i dont know how its called, just type stres at google play.

It will not appear in just minutes..

It took for me like 3 weeks..

So good luck and have fun with your device!

    The number is 6 for Touch Firmware
    The letters above the 12W14 are ABAE

    I hope this helps. :)

    Good Job SONY!

    Batch ACAC 12W22, Anyone else got this ? Hows your screen ?

    All AC doesn't have yellow tint/screen issue. I can confirm it because I have ACAG, my phone is 3 weeks old and I'm playing HD games like MC3, N.O.V.A. 3, Sahdowgun etc.. to the point that my phone reaches (I think the hottest temperature) but no yellow tint/spots/screen issues. :good: thumbs up for SONY!

    And what about ACAE 12W23 , in black ?

    Dial *#*#7378423#*#* go to service info > software info, if your touch firmware is 6 you don't have to worry. All AC versions including yours doesn't or will not have yellow spots ir tints.
