Question about Sony Computers & Internet
Does anybody have any advice on gaining access (behind motherboard etc) to replace this faulty part . I have tried to google the service manual and vids on youtube but proved fruitless. Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.
You ARE using an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source, correct?
Otherwise you are going to Static shock your laptop, and can use it for a Doorstop.
(Or conversation piece,
"Hey what's that Stewart?" "Oh that was an attempt to repair an old VAIO I had." )
Average price is around $3 to $6. One example,
I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case.
You can also set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the TABLE you are working on, and connect to it.
Or a large metal knickknack (Unpainted)
Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
(You can use a clean egg carton if you need to)
SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws.
Advise DO NOT mix them up.
(Especially since there is no free Service Manual)
Let's look at some of the casing parts, to familiarize you,
Get the Sony part number off of the Touchpad, to look up a replacement.
For additional questions please post in a Comment.
