Hi there!

Whenever I charge my XA2 (, the screen turns on and off constantly. Is there a fix to this besides turning off the phone while it is charging?

Thanks in advance!

I was about to write this bug too. On my XA2 plus, the screen turns on and off for a few minutes before turning off while charging. Doesn't happen everytime when I charge it, but quite frequently.

Happens to me too (Xperia XA2 dual-sim H4113 with Sailfish OS I'm using a CSL 3-port USB charger that purportedly supports QuickCharge 3.0. The phone keeps pinging every few seconds saying that it is “charging”.

If you have a quickcharger, this could be related to that. Occasionally XA2 goes through several cycles of reporting "dedicated charger" -> "high voltage charger" -> "disconnected" -> "dedicated charger" -> ... before settling down to some state. These then cause display wakeups due to triggering associated notifications.Seems to be more likely if battery is already full when the charger is connected.

The battery wasn't full. Never had this problem before SailfishOs. Anyhow, I guess I will just have to turn off my phone while charging until it gets fixed. Thanks for your answer!

Reference to the older post about charging going on and off when on Quickcharge.
