Question about Sony VAIO PCG-V505DXP Notebook
I have a Vaio PCG V505. It suddenly stop working and there is not power now. The power cord is fine (has a green light) but the computer will not turn on.
You will most likely need to replace the dc jack, which is the port where your charger plug plugs into...
To test if your dc jack is bad... Remove the Battery, Plug the Power cord into laptop then attempt to power on... If no lights turn on, no fan spins.. your DC jack is bad...
DC Jacks Cost $6 to $10 but you need to find someone experienced to replace it, or you might end up with a dead motherboard as well..

Sony stopped putting the DC jack on the motherboard on most of the newer VAIO's. It is now a separate unit with a power pigtail that plugs into the motherboard. These are easy to replace and can be found regularly on Ebay.
