  • Microphone muted

A number of people have encountered problems with built-in microphone is silent, however, appears to be limited to specific applications and functions, such as Skype calls and voice search. This is crucial because we can not live without sound.You can always get an external microphone or use a Bluetooth headset.

You could try resetting the tablet through Settings> Backup and restore after factory data reset, select Erase internal storage (just be sure to backup first). Now retest the microphone.

  • Problem with Wi-Fi

It always pays to start by removing the connection, restart the router and your tablet, doing this, we will have a fresh connection. If that does not work then try some of the following ideas.

There are often conflicts between Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Some people have reported problems with Wi-Fi when using Bluetooth accessories, such as keyboards and mice are connected. This can be easily checked. Sorry, but there is no obvious solution to this problem.

Call your router manufacturer or your service provider internet to find out how to do these things. Also make sure the router firmware is updated. If none of this has worked, Lasony have to call and see if you can get a replacement tablet.

  • No support for exFAT SD cards

The LTE version of the  Sony Xperia Tablet Z does not support exFAT SD card format. Only the version of Wi-Fi Tablet Xperia Z does. That means if you want to see a movie that has more than 4GB, it will be a problem.

Possible solutions:

Sony has revealed that it is working on an update that will allow the exFAT format SD cards on the LTE version, but there is no estimated time. You could make you root your Android tablet and download an application to use the exFAT and NTFS formats.

  • Water damage
