Question about Sony PCG-TR3A Notebook
On my Sony laptop PCG-TR3A the battery charging with the AC adapter is intermittent. The power symbol erratically switches back and forth between "battery power" and "AC power." Replacing the battery made no difference. The AC power supply puts out a steady 16 VDC while charging, as it should. I assume the problem is in the charge controller which must be inside the laptop. I have not been able to find a service manual.
Will appreciate your help.
