Seemingly your laptop dc jack is dead. How to confirm it? If you should wiggle your laptop charger on a position to let your laptop charge, it indicates your dc jack is loose. Either replace it or repair it. If your dc jack works well, please check your ac adapter. Maybe your charger is dead.

SOURCE: SONY VAIO BATTERY CHARGING

This is not a problem, this is a designed function to increase battery life. To adjust this, go to "vaio control centre", and then power management. Inside this is battery care, here you can adjust the settings or de-activate this function.

SOURCE: My battery will not charge on a sony

Hello,

This information is from Sony Vaio support website:

- Remove the battery from the VAIO and check the battery and the VAIO for damage, dirt or corrosion on the battery connectors
- Re-insert the battery and make sure the battery is well inserted and locked
- If possible, test the VAIO with another battery of the same type to see if the problem is caused by the battery itself. If the problem lies with the battery, you may want to consider purchasing a new battery.
If you are unsure where the problem lies, or have additional questions, please contact VAIO Support.

Sony vaio PCG-7142L keeps freezing


Can check if the battery is low ... or is not (or cannot) holding a good charge ... when you unplug it (from the charger) ... when this happens ?

If that is the case, it may "freeze" while it is busy trying to store the contents of your memory before it shuts down (or hibernates). Does it shut down (or goes into hibernate if you let it continue to "freeze") for a while ? If so, then it's your battery.

If the battery doesn't hold a good charge, the laptop will run only a short time (while unplugged) before it has to shut down due to low battery. And if this is the case, consider getting a replacement (new) battery. And follow the initial charging instructions (for a new battery) to lengthen the life of the battery.

My Sony Viao wont stay charged and when i try to power it up, it shuts down by itself at the sign in screen. It wont let me get past the sign in screen,


Are you using a Sony Battery or an aftermarket cheaper version?
If your battery has been changed to a different brand then thats your problem and a whole problem in itself.Not saying there is anything wrong with that, but the Sony ISBmngr.exe file will stop the charging of any battery exept Sony's and put the system into hibernation mode. ( website with Info below)....
If you have the original manufacturers battery then go on.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the typical charging-plug, jack, for laptops. Many times the plug itself is bumped over time and pushes on the pin in the center. The charging time becomes very short, if at all, because the connection is broken.Some are completely or because of the position of the wire holding it just right long enough to give a short charge.

32917b9.png With a Voltmeter ,check the output of the charger itself to be sure it is working properly.
Although VIAO has been out for a while & because the model was not listed here the age of the battery may also be in question. If the battery has shorted out and the charging unit & jack are fine then a bad battery that has shorted will cause you symptoms also. Try removing the battery and running on the charger alone.
Here are a couple of sites that I found that deal with Sony VIAO's

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-661L I shut it down and it won't restart


do you get any leds when charger is inserted? if yes, try to remove battery, insert charger and press power on. also, i would recommend you test the output of your charger using a multimeter to rule out the possibility of a faulty charger.

Laptop won't charge


You might need a new battery....you could try removing the battery, plug laptop into ac and restarting. Or you might need a new DC power jack. If you wiggle the cord where it plugs into the laptop, and it starts to charge normally, then the DC power jack needs replacing. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-sony-vaio-vgn-s360p-replace-broken-power-jack/

Hullo, I spilled wine on my sony vaio


spilling the wine could have caused a surge to your battery or charger either one could be damaged but if your battery is reading full and powers off at random then it is probably your battery and needs to be replaced
