Hi ,

My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

Follow these steps please>

  • Allow your device enough time to start. Press and hold down the power key until the device vibrates and then release it. It may take up to 10 seconds before the device vibrates.

  • Make sure that your Xperia™ device is charged. If the battery is drained, it may take up to 30 minutes for your device to respond to the charging. During this time, the screen remains dark, not showing the charging icon. Also note that it can take up to 4 hours for a drained battery to charge fully.
