  2. I'd return it. Sounds like a faulty unit.

    Have you tried pulling out the battery for a minute then restarting that fixes my vibrating problem

    restart the phone...and if still doesn't work, try to do a factory reset
    that's what i did on mine when the touchpanel wasn't working...
    pulled the battery for 5-10 min, then factory reset
  6. Even if it's second hand, if it's still in warranty you should still be able to send it to Sony for repairs so I'd check on their site about sending it off. The fact it's second hand shouldn't really matter as I've sent off an Xbox that RRoD'd for repairs that I brought off ebay (It had never been used but still, technically second hand.)

    Worst case scenario is Sony wont repair it and the screen needs to be replaced, which is relatively easy to do.
