Problem with dedicated camera key on Sony Xperia U



Sony Xperia U is a good model to date from Sony, these are the first batch of Xperia Phones Sony has released without the Trademark of Ericsson, including the Xperia Sola, P, S, Ion. More of these phone models will be released soon.

Sony has a good camera feature that you can lean on when photography matters. Xperia U has this dedicated camera key for opening the main camera or the front cam, and for taking snapshots, though you can also use the touchscreen to open the device.

I feel what you want to convey, and for that, I think I have suggestions for you to check on whether your problem can be solved by your own or you need service or what.

  1. Have you checked the power button if it just like your dedicated camera that is somewhat irresponsive?
  2. Have you tried removing the case of your Xperia U and tapping the dedicated button? (it might just be something like the Design cover or form factor that hinders the response of the key)
  3. Lastly, is your device been used for more than a hundred times (I mean clicking the camera key), it might just be brought by the NEW device and needs to be used frequently to soften it.

Hope this has helped you somehow.
