Restart in Safe Mode - Sony Xperia® Z3v

Safe Mode puts your phone in a diagnostic state (returned to default settings) so you can determine if a third-party app is causing your device to freeze, reset or run slow.

Note An alternate method is available if the device is unresponsive or won't power on.

  1. With the device powered on, press and hold the Power button (located on the right edge) until the 'Power off' prompt appears on the screen then release.
  2. Touch and hold Power off until the 'Reboot to Safe Mode' prompt appears then release.
  3. Tap OK.
    Note Allow approximately 1 minute for the device to reboot.
    Note Once rebooted, 'Safe mode' appears in the lower-left corner of the screen.
  4. With Safe Mode enabled, test device and app functionality.
