Question about Optoma RD50 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
The right hand hinge,on the power point side of my sony vaio vgn fw21l has become loose and wobbly,i have contacted sony about this,only 2 b told that its going to cost me the earth just to get it looked at ,and that i shouldnt be too worried anyway,as the laptop will work just fine even with this problem,can anyone give me advice,or experience of this fault,should i be concerned?,or will it really be ok to just leave it as it is?,many thanks
My hinge broke on my Sony VAIO and the solution I found was to purchase the Service Manual for the laptop then take the laptop apart and find out which part number the hinge was. Then purchase the hinge directly from USA, which took 1 week to come through and mended the laptop myself.
Sony are doing this to everyone who has problems with the hinges of the laptops as they state the guarantee covers everything EXCEPT the hinges. If you can get proof from a pc repair shop that the hinges are a design flaw then Sony will repair it free of charge, but they will still request a Diagnostic fee which will be refunded if the problem you described turns out to be true.

I returned mines a few weeks ago to the Sony store and stood my ground while they insisted that I had broken it. I told them about this website and that others had this problem and therefore it was a design problem that was covered by the Manufacturer's warranty. It was taken back and returned a week later, fixed with a letter of appology from Sony Services.
