Sony Xperia ZL (C6502) shuts itself off on battery power

by jbdozorec / February 22, 2015 9:16 PM PST

My Sony Xperia ZL (C6502) shuts itself off on battery power but is OK when plugged in and charging. Has anyone had this problem? The battery is not replaceable unless I send the phone back to the factory for repair. I would like to avoid doing this if possible. Thanks for any help I can get.

Actually I've seen that on other PDAs, Phones and Tablets.

Simply yes. It can mean many things such as a battery issue. Some found that unplugging and plugging in the battery worked but not all things are consumer level repairs. If it's in warranty it's best to let them deal with it. No one should diagnose this sight unseen.

probably easiest solution

well i think probably the only solution that i see is to carry a power bank charger with you everywhere..would be little uncomfortable but might work for now if not giving for repairing. Wink
