Unhappy Xperia play wifi annoying!!

Hi, I'm new here!
Hope this site gives a lot of insight into my android device

My Xperia play wifi does Not want to work at all. I have been using it since october last year and the wifi worked fine. But now if I turn it on, it doesnt scan for anything! No networks, routers, ANYTHING!

It also turns on a off automatically without me turning it off.

Please can someone help me
Thanks

Maybe u have a soft problem. Try to reflash system using .ftf file or seus. Maybe a wifi library in ur phone is broken

Welcome to the forums Nasar! Let me move this to the Xperia play sub forums. Maybe your fellow owners can provide more help.

As flash i mean to use flashtool - officialy for x10 but work with all xperias. Than u need .ftf file with stock rom (here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1589399). Its easy, but u lose all user apps/data fter it (phone will be like it was in shop).
U can use SEUS if flashtool is too hard. Seus is official repair app from SE/sony. .ftf file will be downloaded automatically.

Other possibility is to unlock bootloader and than boot custom kernel with custom wifi libs, but its harder and void warranty.

Try Wotan (dont know how it works, never used) or Sony Update Service - in Sony Ericsson times it was named SEUS.

I have not come across a circumstance where this has helped. More often than not the main fix has been to update the firmware of the router.

Someone has told me that downgrading software can be done but I have to flash the phone. I was also told that the wifi problem can be a hardware problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated

hey, i made an acount just so i could get some help with this, i have the exact same problem. first the wifi has major problems connecting to networks then it just turns off. it cant see any networks and shuts of after its been turned on. i did a factory reset that fixed it, but it only fixed it for about a week i then rooted, unloked bootloader and flahed a custom kernal to the phone (dooMKernal v14). with this kernal u have to install a wifi module to make the wifi work. it went great for another 2 weeks then finaly it gave out again im stuck back at the begining now with no warranty!!!!! wish somone knew how to fix this. im currently contacting sony, if i end up fixing mine ill pass on the information to u.

sony really needs to learn how to make phones properly
