Friend of mine has a Sony Z5 with a badly cracked screen. The device is PIN locked but he is unable to put the PIN in due to the broken screen.

Is there any other way to input the PIN on the screen?

If you don't need the data on the phone, do a hard reset.

Press and hold the Power button and the Volume Down button (located on the right edge of the device) until the Sony screen appears then release. From the System Recovery screen, select Factory Reset. Utilize the Volume buttons to scroll through the menu options and the Power button to select.
