Xperia Z suffering LED notification issue

in Problems, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL


Some people are reporting problems with their LED notification on the Sony Xperia Z. It seems that the notification light only lights up when charging according to reports. At first, it was thought the problem might be related to the Stamina mode being enabled. However, even with this switched off people were still not receiving notification of missed calls and SMS texts.

Luckily, there appears to be an easy fix for this. All you need to do is to factory reset the handset. Then apply all of your settings manually such as Wi-Fi i.e. don’t use backup to restore your settings. Many are reporting that once you do this the notification light works as intended. Hopefully, this bug, will be sorted out in the next firmware update.

    I have mine since day one (20th feb). No issues. Restored a backup from my XS to XZ via Sony backup & restore. Was using Stamina and led was always off except while charging. Now I turned off Stamina. Led works without a problem.
    Not rooted.

    Typical sony..!! …..always some or the other bug manage to make it to release firmware…

  • We at pocketpc.ch recommend for EVERY sony phone, directly after buying it: do a Software repair through SEUS… we often had user getting Trouble with small things short time after first usage on new devices… after wiping or repairing the Software the Problems are gone…

  • Well, every manufacturer has bugs. Not only Sony !

  • Notification LED is not a small easily missed (no pun intended) bug. Also, on 2011 phones ICS firmware, notification light has the same bug.

  • for now i don´t need led

  • Mine doesn’t work, but I will wait for a firmware update.

  • James Earley

    Hadn’t noticed it tbh, I love my Xperia Z either way :)

  • AsadMulla

    no such problem with mine. Didn’t do a restore when new.

    The LED is also not working on my xperia mini pro. I think it is not really important and i never used the feature when it was working with ginger bread. What i dont understand is, why it is so difficult to control a fucking LED….

  • Malena

    Yeah this is the issue pertaining to the emergency notification which is a built in fault that is really not good.

  • Malena

    Yeah i have experienced this and it is a built in problem why not to use mass notifications

  • Qwatro

    Just turn off the Stamina Mode to re-enable the LED Notification function.
