Remove the main battery and try again, if no change! the DC jack in the laptop is a common source of trouble and must be dismantled down to the motherboard level to address, bad solder connections are common under the plug, I recommend you have it fully assessed before repair.
I'm a laptop repair technician, and in my experience the very thin horizontal or vertical lines are usually caused by malfunction in the display panel and the entire screen has to be replaced. If might be worth a shot for you to try and reseat the LCD cable though, but I doubt that it will work.
There is. It would appear that the DC jack was not the only thing that was fried. If all your solder connections are correct, the mother board may have been damaged be the shorting of some part on the board, and burned open. Look for fuses, and "resistors that are have a "0" on them. they should read a short. if you find nothing. the board is damaged beyond repair.
Turn it on turn it over and see if the fan is operating. If not power your lap top off and replace the fan. You may have to not use this computer until the fan is replaced it is advisable not to. The smell you have may be dust smell when it gets hot. Clean throughly and make sure that all the dust is out of your computer. Also recommended a lap fan also which goes underneath the laptop to assist with cooling.
Lap tops are very touchy and need to be kept cool at all times otherwise you will be purchasing a new lap top if you do not take care of the cleaning or the cooling or the fan not working or spinning slowly. Check all this out. Critical if you do not understand what I mean take your computer to a local shop for immediate care. I hope this assisted you. John
Check your ports on the lap top see if you have s video or hdmi or dvi or VGA the best is hdmi if you have that get a cable for either one of you connections also match connections from the lap top to what you have for your TV more than likely if they are both fairly new you should have hdmi connections for both get a cable that is long enough. I get my cables at amazon.com their prices are the bomb.
Connect them together both ends to lap top and to tv then make sure that you have a line in jack stereo jack with RCA ends hook that to the back of your tv and your lap top in stereo jack even better to your surround sound system. Set your TV to AVI 1 or 2 or DVI or whichever is your connection start a movie on the lap top and turn your sound on and see if you have a picture on your screen you should have the same thing as what is showing on your monitor on your lap top. Adjust settings and have fun!
That cannot be repaired as the screen on your notebook has layers and between those layers gas is compressed within thin columns. In your case your screen got a minute leak in one of the columns and now that column is unable to produce image. Hence, It can't be repaired. You have to change the entire screen.
you need check
1) make sure the line is stable or changeable there when you folding the LCD lid or touch lid somewhere. there is some temp disconnection if the line changes sometimes
2) check and make sure the LCD cable and the plug/socket at motherboard and back LCD panel, they are no dirty and disconnection
3) make sure the LCD panel hardware damage (replace one) if the lind is stable there, mostly should change the LCD panel.
If the adapter is working, the problem could be the jack on the back of the notebook. The nice thing is most of the Vaio notebooks the jack is replaceable without having to solder the jack to the board. I would call SONY regarding the jack for a mode number and a picture. it's easily replaceable but requires the disassembly of the notebook.
I have two Toshiba lap tops, I had the same problems which you have, tell you the truth, I took them to Bevely Hills factory warranty shop changed the mother board and then after eight months, I had some other problems, total five times in the repaire shop and finally passed the warranty. It is totally gone.
I know this can not help you at all, remember four years ago, Toshiba been suit, finally I got two years factory warranty for my lap tops, I wasted too much of my time to solve the problems but both lap top I can not use anymore,
