Sony Vaio Pcg-5j2l bad connection screen

The laptop (i believe) fell on the floor while borrowed by friends. Now the screen is F*** up and if I press the bottom part of the screen (where the Sony logo is) changes the looks. Sometimes it disappears and sometimes it appears kind of normal. The image sometimes cust and halves and the bottom part stays on the top and the top part stays on the bottom... What should I do? do you think if I replace the screen it will be better or do you think it is a cable connection problem?

Check on line for a bulb to replace the dead one. Cost about 9.00 plus shipping. If you are careful you can do it yourself.

SOURCE: LCD turns white.

probably failure in the LCD controller IC in the lcd controller board. that no signal was sent out to the lcd driver ic thus you could only see white display. A replacement of LCD panel is the best solution. best regards

SOURCE: Sony Vaio faulty screen?

First, lets make sure that the screen is actually blank or very very dim. Look very closely at the screen and try to see an outline or shadow or anything that might give an indication that the desktop is actually up and running. There is the possiblity that just the backlight is off and the screen is actually working. Try taking a flashlight and shine it at the bottom of the screen and try to illuminate the bottom pointing upwards try to illuminate the screen. If you can see anything on the screen then most likely the inverter has failed and can be replaced by removing the screen bezel, unplugging two connections and replacing the inverter which is secure under the lcd screen itself. The inverter costs approx. 20 bucks.

If you do not see anything, then you need to check the vga port on the laptop. this port allows you to attach an external monitor to the laptop and transfer the image to an external monitor. This will tell us if whether your motherboard has fried out the video card. If you do get a picture on an external monitor, then perhaps the only issue is a failed screen.

That recall is for VPCF11 and VPCCW2 models. Your issue definitely sounds like a heat problem. Sometimes it can be a buildup of dust, fuzz, carpet etc especially if you use it on a bed or the floor. Check all the vents and make sure they are clear. If the fan is making abnormally loud noises, slight grinding it could be failing. Here is one, retails for about 35 dollars. Make sure you get one with a heatsink, better safe then sorry. It is not too difficult to replace, but if you are not comfortable doing it then it is best to take it to a computer repair store.

Hello olejonok, 
I ran into this problem while helping a friend with her laptop. Here is the solution: 

1) Visit the following webpage: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/swu-download.pl?template=EN&mdl=&upd_id=2031&SMB=YES

2) Download "SOOOTH-01106200-US.EXE"  
3) Run the program and follow the instructions, then reboot. 
There are several registry filters which, when removed and the system rebooted, re-enable your drive.
Applies to: DVR-K17 VGN-CR220E PCG-5J2L
