Sony has a terrific website for support. I just bought a PCG-F610 and found everything I needed on the Sony website.

There seems to be a different model number for your unit on the Sony site. Go here:

I love my new (old) Sony Vaio by the way. I got it on shopgoodwill.com. Goodwill doesn't put all of their stuff out locally. Some of it is held for auction and the site is shopgoodwill.com. I got the laptop for $132. Sure, it's a little older but I love it! Picked up a nice Toshiba Satellite for a song!!

Sony vaio model pcg-61611L it turns on for 4 seconds and then it turns off using the ac adapter . help please


The charger may be bad, will it charge the battery? a common problem is the DC jack in the laptop breaks connection on the motherboard internittent operation or no power and shut down. If you can sub the charger that will tell if the power supply is bad or the problem is in the laptop. If the computer is the issue I recommend a professional because it will require extensive parts removal.

I have a sony vaio pcg-7148l that wont power on correctly


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

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..

Hi z14jc.
Clink on the link below
http://cid-ccc9919d689e8b4c.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/Public
Download the VAIO dissasembly.doc
Its not for your model but should be close enough.
I am presuming that your laptop is OUT of warranty and you have a good idea of what you are doing?
Ensure you have an ESD strap on when touching components.
Good luck.
Let me know if this was useful.

Could be it needs the DC jack resoldered or replaced. (Sounds like its trying to start off dead battery).. These arent to bad to do compared to others weve repaired. Good luck!
