Sony Vaio PCG-K415S Display Problem

I have a PCG-K415S laptop with a siplay problem. The display is extremely dim and unreadable although if you tilt it in the light you can see that what should be on the screen is actually there and of good quality its just to dark to actually read. I think it is just a backlight issue although a friend said it could also be the inverter.

I thought if the inverter was gone then nothing would appear whatsoever on the screen. Am I right in assuming that it is just a backlight problem or could it also be the inverter ??

    I have the same problem with a PCT-GRT170. I ordered and replaced the inverter board. That didn't change the problem at all. I know the inverter board is getting voltage and the screen tries to light up right at start up and if I push the lid closed switch but only momentarily in each case. Any more suggestions other than the recycling bin? BTW - even the monitor output which works at start up shuts off during boot up.

Vaio k23 screen wont turn on when power on


Hello

OK, this problem can be a result of a couple of errors.

SO, let me start by asking you a couple of questions.

Do you hear a abnormal beep code at start up?
Does the display come on if you tilt the screen?

Let me know, i will gladly assist.

Kind regards

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.

Sony Vaio Laptop PCG 9U1M


PCG-K415B is the correct model number the label is possibly the service tage or something.

Here are the specifications of your laptop
  • Intel Celeron D Processor 345 3.06GHz / 533MHz FSB
  • 512MB DDR SDRAM - Low cost double memory Offer - call for details
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD Dual Layer Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs, DVD+, DVD- and large Dual Layer DVD
  • 15.4" XGA xblacklogo.jpg Widescreen TFT Screen
  • ATI Mobility Radeon 345M 64MB shared graphics
  • Integrated wireless 802.11b/g LAN - Call for advice on Wireless networking
  • Integrated 3-in-1 card reader –Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition
  • Includes Sony Software Bundle
My guess is that the laptop is around 1 or 1and half year old as the celeron 3.06GHz is a relatively new processor.

Malfunctioning keyboard Sony Vaio PCG K415S


Ebay or somewhere similar is your best bet for getting a 'used' and therefore much cheaper replacement. Just type in the make/model of your machine..

Most Keyboards are pretty easy to replace and if your not sure how to do it, run a search on the web or post on here with your specific model etc. If its put together anything like my Sony all you have to do is remove a bit of trim above the keyboard (carefully) and there are 4/6 screws holding the keyboard in place. Remove these and the keyboard just slides out. Then it's just a matter of disconnecting the ribbon and reversing the order to put it all back together.

Good luck, J
