 Method 3:

  • Turn off your phone
  • Get a small piece of paper
  • Precisely pinch the piece of paper between the battery and the wedge of the phone
  • Let the battery sit perfectly tight in its socket.

If this issue was happening due to improper placement of battery, this method might fix it.

 

 Method 4:

Sometimes this issue happens if your battery pin is damaged, So check if the pins are orderly aligned. If you find the pins are not arranged in the proper way, then try out the following:

  • Get a Piece of Aluminium Foil
  • Place the Aluminium Foil between the pin and the connectors of the battery to see if the problem is resolved.

Method 5:

You can also try installing a custom ROM after rooting the device to see if this problem is resolved, as sometimes corrupted stock software might be the cause of this issue that reboots the Xperia Z very often.

 

Method 6:

In case you are facing this issue after installing any third party app on your device, it might be that is the culprit of this rebooting issue. To check this, you need to boot your device in safe mode which is done by following the below procedure.

  • First, touch and hold the power key.
  • Next, select the power off option and continue holding it.
  • Safe mode will be prompted on the screen. Tap OK and the device will be restarted in safe mode.

Now, check if the same issue exists or not. In case the phone acts normally without any issues, then one of the apps is causing the problem. So, the next thing you need to do is to uninstall third-party apps until the issue is solved. You can start with the recently installed apps. To uninstall apps:

Head towards Settings > App > Swipe to downloaded screen > select the app > Uninstall > OK and that’s it.

  6. Thank You so much ADITY your method one really worked for my xperia z.feeling relaxed only because of your this idea.Have blessed always.

  7. I solved this problem with my Xperia Z.

    The SIM on my phone kept slipping out of its holder, causing the SIM’s electrical contacts to shift away from where they are supposed to be. This was causing the phone to restart.

    I discovered that this was the problem by noticing that the SIM could be pushed back into its slot by one or two millimetres. I learned to push the SIM back in if it restarted, and that would solve it temporarily.

    After a while I solved it permanently by removing the SIM and putting a small dab of glue on the back of the SIM (where the numbers are) – only a small bit, mind. Once it dried I inserted the SIM and it hasn’t worked loose since. My problem solved. Try at your own risk!

    When I change my smartphone, I may have to get a new SIM but that should not be a problem.

  9. I figured this was just a Telstra thing, but I was frustrated enough to give it a google today. Turns out it’s not just me. Kind of glad about that…?

    Anyway, not sure if this resolves it in full, but it should give it a red hot go.
