No Service after a tear down. What is the problem?

Yuhao Min - Reply

it is hard to define which part causes such problem. Make sure the signal antenna connects with logic board perfectly.

Eric -

Would the water proof go out because of the removal/teardown ?

Tam Alden - Reply

Most likely. The back is glued on so unless you can make that seal perfect again, the phone wont be water proof.

Discalimer: I don't own a z5 and have never taken one apart but I have dissasembled my z3 to replace the screen and they look very similar.

Hi Lenka,

short question was that a normal xperia z5 or the dual SIM Version because it looks like the SIM reader is long enough to Support two SIM cards. It would be nice if you could check if there are two SIM ports here.

Here we teardown Xperia Z5 dual.

Eric -

Is the glass on the rear cover removable? Or is the glass and metal fused together in such a way that you can't separate the two?

Jordan Cooper - Reply

Phone got exposed to rain. Won't turn on now. Red LED confirms it's not entirely dead. Not sure which part I should replace. Any recommendations?

I got my Z5 Premium a little wet when taking pictures in the pool and now the touch screen is extremely unresponsive. I guess I need a new screen and digitizer. It has had over a week to dry out completely

Hey wanted to ask bout sim card/ sd reader on the premium Z5, my phone I bought 2Nd hand, not reading sim, yet it'll preloaded settings with each different sim card brand. How can I fix the sim reader to read them again? Some1 told me to difficult cause solded to motherboard? Or is there something I can do b4 I take to shop, maybe please... Also flash not working either... Everything else seems ok.

Thanks
