Hi i just replaced myxperia z3 compact camera using your Step by step guide. ( Great job on this by the way!) but unfortunately my rear camera is still showing a black screen. What else could be causing this, either hardware or software related?

Same - however Sony seem to be aware of the issue and are not honoring warranty on the device despite being less than 2 years old which is why I am trying this.. Rather annoying. An otherwise usable phone is resigned to the parts box due to an issue with the rear facing camera.

Do I need additional adhesive to reassemble the phone, or the old one will work just fine?

Giacomo Ciani - Réponse

You'll need a new adhesive pad.
