steven lanck: my parents were always trying to get me sony phones and i have one of these and it came like that because they brought me a broken one
steven lanck: lol xD
SAZ542: Yes, U r right,
Feel sorry for you.
I have started to hate Such phones that look good but go out of order too soon...
Melanie Croft: im honestly sick of this phone, why would they sell something that does this within 4 months of purchase? waste of money in general, now that you can attach ps3 controllers to newer phones..
SAZ542: Hi There..
Some call it LCD Strip.
Some call Slide Flex Cable Ribbon Part.
Anyways here is a link for u to Purchase
TheOneCrazyB: What's the name of the actual part that needs replacing?
Alex Gutierrez: I had a similar problem. What I think is that your going to have to buy a flex cable which is something inside the phone. It will cost about $20 you can get it online. there is a guy on youtube that can show you how to dissasemble the phone and how to change the flex cable his youtube name is hanable selecta
SAZ542: I feel sorry for U
Simonas Nesakysiu: Same problem for me
TheOneCrazyB: Thanks for replying :D
Hopefully that's the only thing in need for replacing.
SAZ542: Yeah It Surely SUCKS...
I just got it the Strip Replaced from the Service Centre..
However if you are from the STATES you can buy the strip online and replace it yourself.
TheOneCrazyB: Hey, have you found a solution to this? I also just recently had the same problem and it sucks :(
SAZ542: U didnt LIke It?
Or was i wrong somewhere?
Jhon Pontealpedo: Quién te enseño a hablar ingles? Peña Nieto?

JackGray99: Um can anyone help my charger won't work for xperia play I've blown on the port no relief switches the socket and nothing has changed can some one help
deric miller: I rooted mine and I don't think I can return it now.
itchyisvegeta: Had the same exact problem, it slowly got worse. Bought the parts to fix it off ebay for $15.99. Had no trouble replacing it. Works like brand new (with the exception of the front camera I accidentally messed up, but I never use it anyways)
popop1231: hey dude, i have one of those, pretty cool, but its a fragile slide, i seen in you video, you slide it very hard, can cause the connection between screen and the processor lose, if you fix, slide it slowly
sandeep smith: i got the same problem mate its just so many complaints of this phone not good, sony company should do something to solve this problem, so i would suggest don't waste money on fixing this phone, just get a nice new phone NOT ANY SONY though. good luck
DarkAli66: Just get a better phone?
Syam Narinesingh: the problem with my xperia play is that it fell on the screen yesterday and everytime I slide out the gamepad i feel like something is dragging between the 2 halves of the phone...everything works fine but i dont know what it is whether it be a piece of plastic or anything like that
Sunil Sharma: mine is too suffering from the same problem for last 4 months... I'm also looking for a solution
andrew wright: and best way is diy it can be reeli simple
andrew wright: ebay lcd flex cable had same prob
SAZ542: I Stay in INDIA... u will hardly find any sony phones.. Finding an Xperia PLAY is Like Going to SPACE...
Edward Alderson: You need new main strip cable, 15-30 US dollars and a little know how to replace it
Mitesh Gedia: i get same problem its Sony model issue which every one facing this problem i m getting this after my warranty over 1 months the service center say me its strip problem and i have to submit 20 days to service center for repair the phone and total they charge me over 80$ and they give me only 1 month warranty, how interesting before i used Nokia phone i never expanse that much money in 4 year
