    Hello deblynn,

    It is possible, but there are a couple of things that you can try. I'll need a bit more information, though:

    1. What model of Sony Vaio is it?
    2. When you say light switch, I'm assuming that means you turned on the power. What else do you hear? Does a fan come on inside? Do you hear the disc drive move or any type of humming or clicking?
    3. Do you have access to another computer monitor?
    4. Where did you find it? Could it have been exposed to heat or pressure?

    It could be that a component inside needs replacing for it to work right. After a test or two, we may able to better tell. The above info would be a good start.

You might remove the battery pack and try it on AC only; it's possible that the battery pack has died while it was not being used or recharged. If it does work without the pack, you can choose to make a permanent 'desktop' unit of it or bite the bullet and buy a new battery pack. If you buy a new one, shop the price; it can vary at least 2:1.

Vaio PCG-9S1L Screen is very dark, extremely hard , LAPTOP SONY


As stated in your post "two year old may have dropped it"
If this is true than the backlight has probably been damaged. The small flourescent tubes that generate light through the LCD display.

You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp, follow this to determine the fault.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:


  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Cannot start Sony VAIO PCG-5J2L /Goes to black screen only


During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.

If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.

If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".

POWER TURNS ON BUT SCREEN DOES NOT


Try Holding The Screen Up to A Bright Light And Look at it from an angle to see if you can see windows running without the light.... If you can..... The Problem Is Either Your LCD Bulb (needs Replacing) or It's the Power Inverter....

If.. You See No OS Running .. Just Black You Could Need Either A New Display ... or your Video Card/Chip is Shot...
Try Connecting an external Monitor if able to..... If It SHows Up On An External Monitor then Your Video Card/CHip is Good..

If You Get No Display, But The Black Screen Lights Up.... It Is Either The Display Cable Or The Display Panel Itself....

Sony Vaio ac adapter submerged


If the ac adapter was plugged into the laptop at the time may be bad news. Unplug AC adapter, take out the battery and hold power button for 10 seconds. Then connect AC adapter and hit power. If that doesn't work put battery back in without ac adapter and hit power button.

If neither test works bring to repair center for diagnosis. Best case AC adapter would need replacing. Worst case Motherboard fried.

Thanks
