SOURCE: sony vaio pcg-2j3l desktop will not power on

Just to clarify, the box (power brick) in the middle of the power cord is the power supply. With that said, there is a light on the box (may be green, blue, or some other color). Does it come on when you plug it in (assuming that the wall outlet or serge protector has power)? If it doesn't then the power cable needs to be replaced. If it does then there is something wrong with either the cable going between the box and the computer, the power connector, or the connector on the computer.

Vaio desktop blinking power supply


Remove the side pane to access your motherboard cables, etc. Locate the connector on your motherboard that contains the wires going from your power supply to your motherboard. It will be a large, rectangular connector with a lot of individual wires It is not a ribbon cable but should be located next to a ribbon cable connector and next to a green blinking light on your motherboard (when the power supply is plugged into the wall). Note: This green blinking light is in addition to the green blinking light on the back of the PC.

This next step is important: You have to disconnect the connector noted above from the motherboard WHILE the power suply is plugged into the wall. Wait a few seconds and plug it back in. The blinking reen light on the motherboard should now be a solid green light. The PC should now power up.

If the steps above don't work you will need to get a new power supply.

The computer has a bad power supply module that will need to be replaced, and it is important that the right one is matched up with your tower.

Sony Vaio PCG-K33 will not power up


Hi

Ensure battery is secure, If so try removing it and plugging power supply in.ensure all power supply plugs are very tight and fitted, unplug each one and re-plug in to be sure. Sometimes the power supply lamp can be on but not actually supplying power out the other end.

I would suggest trying to replace the power supply. If that does not fix the issue, i would need to hear more about the computer.

Sony vaio desktop wont turn on


This type scenario normally indicates a power supply failure. Try connecting a known good power supply to your Sony Vaio desktop.

If you do not have a spare power supply, (many people do not) the alternative is to short the the black and green wire on the power lead connecting to the motherboard using a paper clip. This is not a desirable solution and very dangerous, but will help to diagnose the problem. Do not insert any objects while the power supply is energized. Ensure it is unplugged first.

Should the computer start with the green and black wire shorted, the problem is with the power supply. If not, the problem is likely at the motherboard level.

Hope this helps you.

Sony PCG TR3A Green power light on Yellow Battery light On


If it's still under warranty I'd send it to Sony. If not, it may be better to get it fixed locally. It's easier to have a face to face conversation and explain exactly what is going on. From what you've told us, it sounds like the power circuit on the mother board is bad.
Hope things go well for you on this one.

Vaio will not turm on


you will most likely need to replace the dc jack, which is the port where your charger plug plugs into...

To test if your dc jack is bad... Remove the Battery, Plug the Power cord into laptop then attempt to power on... If no lights turn on, no fan spins.. your DC jack is bad...
DC Jacks Cost $6 to $10 but you need to find someone experienced to replace it, or you might end up with a dead motherboard as well..
