I have a Z5 for about 2 weeks and it has been doing factory resets on its own about 5 times. The worst part is that it delete the content of my SD card also. I already done what was recommended on both links bellow and that didn't solve it:

I also have disabled the MyXperia functionalities and I use a two steps authentication for my Google account what makes almost impossible to have someone reseting it through any of these methods unless it is me.
Unfortunately I cracked the screen on my Z3 (gutted) and although I can see everything, the swipe facility no longer works at all. I backed up all my information to my laptop and transferred all my photos off through PC companion, and I just about managed to power down the phone. The thing is I have an offer on the table for spares or repair, but due to the swipe facilty not working I cant do a normal factory reset.
My new Sony Xperia Z5 was auto Reset to Factory setting without any notification.
I bought this phone on 24 Dec lat year, within this 16 days, it was auto reset twice. I was busy on transfer data after it auto reset and all the picture that I took in this phone was gone.I am predicting that the phone will reset again on 14 Jan...
after completing factory reset the phone can not find any signal on both sim cards (different operators). Before the reset both networks ware working properly.
What was done so far: - factory reset three more times - software update - repair phone using Sony PC Companion - checked with another sim card (another operator) - still no service - trying to switch on/off airplane mode in every menu location available - After trying to manually find service provider, phone goes to search mode and stays in it not finding any
After switching on the phone or switching off the airplane mode the phone seems to need more time than before (around 1 min) to find the SIM cards. After the sim card is found stays without network.
I have just updated my Xperia 8 to 2.1 (eventually, because I use a Mac ) and can now no longer get the phone to connect to my home internet which it was happily doing untl that point. (Backed everything up & successfully restored all my other info / settings)I have reset the modem to factory settings, rebooted all the various equipment which all reconnected with the code. I type in the same code into the phone & it tells me that the code is incorrect & then that WiFi is 'disconnected'. So far, I have not been able to get to any access points for other free WiFi, so dont know if this is a general fault.
I recently updated my Neo v to ICS...I wasnt able to see songs album images in music player...so i did factory reset...music player problem is solved but now my cell is consuming too much of battery then before... Also google market is not opening...internet browser is slow.
About a week or two, I have changed some configurations on the GPS Status(like Sensor Filter and such) and the GPS was taking too long to connect, in the same places that it got a lock time around 15s, now it takes 2 min, só I did a factory reset and the GPS worked good again.About 3 days ago, the GPS started to take too long for get a lock, around 2~3min, and I did a reset again, but doesn't work. I tried it many times again and still doesn't work.My phone is with the last update(via PC Companion) and I've tried a repair(via PC Companion too) with the SIM and SD cards, but don't solved my problem too.What can I do?I think thatits not hardware, because before it was working pretty well, I think that is software.Oh...I tried to turn off the phone disconnect the battery cable(under a rubber cover) for about 5 minutes and reconnect, but still the same.What can I do to solve this problem?Now the GPS cant get a lock, it find the satellites(5~7) but don't get a lock.
I used the factory reset option in my Sony Xperia Z3 and the process is never ending it keeps in the android logo doing the factory reset and it has been like that for like 4 hours now. it should take only 5 minutes but I dunno what is happening.I waited the process to end for 4 hours and after nothing else happened I decided to unplug the charger and wait for it to run out of battery. Then I turned it on again and nothing changed, it went back to the factory reset process with the android logo.
Then I tried pressing the hard reset button located where the 64 GB SD Card is, and still nothing after turning it on again. Once again the cell phone restarted the factory reset process and right now another four horus passed and nothing.
The phone is heating so I am using a laptop cooler to cool the phone and avoid the heating process that is caused by the factory reset process.I still havent tried to remove the SD card.and tried to restart the process.
touchsceen on my Xperia mini pro is not working so when I power the phone on i get to lock screen and thats it. I want to perform factory reset to find out whether its software or hardware problem, but how to do it, when I can't select factory reset in the menu. how to get into recovery mode, but none of them worked.
While playing a game on my phone yesterday the screen flashed/blinked for a moment, then turned and remained a blackish blue color. While in this state nothing on the phone was functional, I could hold the power button until I was blue in the face and it wouldn't power off the device. At this point I opened the cover for the micro SD card and SIM card and pressed the yellow power off button.
After holding down the yellow off button for several seconds and feeling the three vibrations I set the phone down and left it for 5 minutes. When I powered device backup it had the same black blue screen. I repeated these steps several times all with the same outcome. At this point I'm pretty frustrated and attempted to boot into recovery to no avail, finally deciding to simply do a factory reset which didn't work either.
Is it similar to another andriod device.Hold Home Key + End key for 20 seconds or until you see a "triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1"Open the QWERTY keyboard and hit Alt+W.The Dream device.Got a Eve that has an email lock
I'm an early adopter of Android (coming from iOS) and this is my first android phone. I've been reading and some posts suggest that I should do a factory reset after the update.
I wanna hear your thoughts about this, is it necessary? Knowing that android doesn't have a good backup system unlike iOS, it's time consuming to move everything back where it was. Do the benefits outweigh the cons? My G3 has never been rooted btw got no intentions to do so.
I have an unlocked One M8,EMEA variant running stock sense 6.Yesterday,i got the lollipop OTA and did install it today.Now, I heard a lot of people complaining about performance issues and overall lesser stability on lollipop compared to kitkat, on reddit and a few other sites
Factory reset recommended after the update, especially considering the change of runtime to ART and all those system level changes? Have any of you done it on any of your devices and Is it worth the hassle? Will the performance or battery life be any better?
