When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Perform these steps and the issue will be resolved if the issue is with the Static charges on the Mother board.

I recommend you use Power Drain procedure by following these steps:

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

SOURCE: VAio VGN-FS742 Screen does not display

Try to remove the battery, remove AC adapter, and press and hold power button for 45 sec. reinsert battery, and Plug and try again, if that doesn't solve it, you may need to try to change memory first, (cheapest) or the motherboard or CPU.

Please give good rating if this helps your issue, Thanks

SOURCE: sony vaio cr35 power problem

You might have a hardware failure here. Specially the part when you said you had the same result when removing the battery and just had the AC in. This machine has NO POST this mean Hardware failure specially the blinking light concerns me on the machine health as far as a tech. I would say bring it into the geek squad to confirm my theory it will not hurt for them to take a few secounds to confirm this if there is any warranties I cannot stress this enought use the warranty this is your secure ticket to a fix if its not warrantied I would seriously recommend having the motherboard evaluated it should at least beep but if you do not get a beep this is NO POST hard ware failure. Thanks and please rate you experience with me postivly

My sony vaio PGC-3E2L wont turn on, not even when i plug the charger. The only thing it does is turn on the battery and power lights only when i press the power button but turn off when i release it


Take out the battery and try with just the charger, Batteries for computers have regulators in them and when the batteries die, the computer wont boot.

Sony WEGA LCD TV Model KFE50A10 wont turn on


It turns out that the number of red lights flashing, relates to a partiuclar error problem. My TV was flashing 4 red lights, pausing , then flashing again etc etc. This particular error meant that one of the five fans within the TV box had stopped funtioning. So the TV has gone to the repairman today. I was advised by an operator at the SONY STYLE CENTRE that such a repair would be considered as a genuine fault and that SONY would pick up the tab. I live in hope
