Hopefully it's still under warranty and does not take long for Sony to fix it for you.

This would be a temporary fix and will work for a few days, if your lucky a couple weeks.

Going to try the hairdryer trick to see if I can deactivate and get saves. I will then decide do I go after Sony for a repair and see if I can get it for free or go after Tesco with sale of goods act. Merry blooming Christmas. :(
