Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FS660/W Notebook

1 Answer

There is no power going into my laptop with or without power cord. It has a battery in it and the power cable seems like it is getting power, because the green light is on on the box.

    Give me a little more detailed info...turn off everything and take the power cable off the computer. Then take the battery out, with the battery out, plug the computer back up and hit the power button. Then shut everything down, unplug the power adapter from your computer and put the battery back in. Press the power button. Let me know what happens after each test.

Check your DC output voltage using multimeter. if you dont have a multimeter short circuit your power pin using a wire or paper clip. if that green light goes off your charging unite is working properly.

Dear power cord is use for charging your laptop battery so if you don't use power cord then you will be unable to charge your laptop battery. But this is truth that if your battery charge is okay then no need power cord but tell me bro how can you charge your laptop battery without power cord. This is totally funny. Yes one way, that is you can charge your battery by using dc adapter. But if you do it i am saying you that you just going to spoil your laptop and also battery.

Hello,

There are three possible reasons why your computer is experiencing this power problem. What you need to do is to isolate the component that's causing it.

These are the parts which should be checked:
1. Power supply
2. Battery
3. Motherboard of the laptop.

Here's the procedure that you have to follow:

1.
Remove the battery from the computer.

2. Power the computer up with the power cord only without the battery on it.

3. Check if it works perfectly without any problems even if the battery is out. If it works, then, the battery needs to be replaced. (Note: Batteries are disposable parts. They usually die after 2 years of usage depending on how you use it.)

4.If no go even without the battery on it, check the ac adapter or cord if there's a light lit on the box of the cord. If no lights on it, double check the connection. If connections seem ok but no power, then, replace the power cord.

5. If power cord seem fine, check the hole in the computer where you plug in the cord. What you need to check is if there are any sign of damages. Wiggle the cord and see if there are lights lit in the laptop.

I hope this help.

My MSi A6200 laptop, decided it is not going to turn on anymore, even with the power cord attached. It will turn on for a few seconds and then immediately power off. What can I do to fix this?


I know this is an old question but for those who are looking for a solution i narrowed it down to the power button board above the keyboard. it seems that if you power the computer on and then quickly remove the board from the ribbon cable the computer will stay on.

You have a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

Sounds to me like the transformer circuit that enables the batery to charge. If you have bought your machine within the last 12 months it should still be covered by warranty so go back to the supplier. If not covered I wouod still try as it is not beyond reasonable expecations that the machine will operate perfectly in very way for more than 1 year.

We need to know what is defective and what is not.

  1. Remove the battery from the laptop.
  2. Plug the power cord to the laptop and plug it to the wall power outlet.
  3. Now, without the battery, turn your laptop ON.
  4. If it powers ON without the battery, then your battery is completely dead and needs replacement. If the problem is still the same, then it should be a motherboard problem considering that you have already confirmed that your power cords are working.
Try your luck. Post feedback if you need further instructions. The point is, you need to know if the battery is dead by removing it first then connecting your laptop directly to the wall power outlet. You can connect it to a Surge Protector or Automatic Voltage Regulator for safety purposes if you want.

It sounds more like the large portability battery has been 'messed' i recommend getting a new power cord. Whist you may have repaired the cabling and it may have appeared to work, the escape circuit for charge may have been broken but it is not required for the laptop to work, but is important when recharging the battery. I recommend getting a new adapter and then if that doesn't work a new large battery also.

Acer aspire 5570 no power


Try turning it on with the battery but without power cord connected, if it turns ON.. then it looks like ur power section on the mother board has problems and u need to take it to the service centre. Also make sure your getting the desired output in the power cable.

Thankyou
