Question about Sony VAIO R505JL Notebook
Sounds like the power pin is loose. I fixed one on my Z505 Sony and on my S6210 Fujitsu. The part is only 5 bucks but the labor at most shops is over 200 bucks. OUCH!
I finally figured out that tugging and pulling on the cable was what caused the pin to fail. Got a JerkStopper and haven't had a problem since I installed it.

Is it a power adapter that you bought later? if so... it may be the wrong one... power adapters come in so many varietys amd ampages, very often you get one not powerful enough. i had a computer that needed 6.2 amps, and an adapter that was only giving 3.5 or something.
if it isnt anything to do with that, there is a click that acts as a contact/holder power cord inney thinger. try sticking something such as a clip (preferably with electrical tape around it... to avoid any risk of shock from left over battery juice) in there and bending it out a bit. but this is at best a short term sollution.
you might just need a new jack in the back, so to speak.
go warrenty? lol.

How did you check the power adaptor? Are there any LEDs turning on or any noise coming from the laptop when you try to turn it on?
