SOURCE: Sony Vaio PCG 7v2l won't turn on

this may or may not be the solution but its some sort of indication of what is going on. Ok when you plug the ac adapter do u get a flashing light to indicate your batter is being charged? If you do then there is power going through the laptop to the battery, which is great. Now if you don't have the indicator flashing then it could be that the where the AC adapter plugs to the laptop could be now faulty. The other one could be that the AC adapter plug i.e. head that goes into the laptop some how internally has a severed connection.

comment on what you find and ill see what else i can advice :)
Plz rate me

Hi,
To check if the problem is the power adaptor or the Vaio, just have a look at the charger itself and see if the green light on the adaptor itself is on?If yes, then more likely it is working fine. If no light, change the fuse in the plug and try again.
You can also try a static discharge on the Vaio. Please remove all external devices, unplug the adaptor and remove the battery. Put your finger on the power button and hold it for about 30 seconds. Then connect the power adaptor again and try to boot.

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

So I gather the laptop does not run when the battery is in and the AC adapter is not connected? Laptop batteries tend to ware down over time and will need to be replaced as they end up not being able to hold any charge. Look online for a new replacement of the battery under the model number of your laptop

Hello,

maybe the battery is very low, that's why its blinking or the new ac adapter you bought is not compatible with the computer.

That's why its blinking the red light.

Sony viao wont boot, battery light flashes amber once when power button is pressed, AC power indicator on laptop is green and responds to being un-plugged and the adapter LED is green,but it still wont...


Move the power jack around while plugged in, does the blinking on the battery stop when you hold it in certain positions? If so, your dc-jack needs to be soldered, but i probably was loose already before you started using it. It could be a broken motherboard issue as well. You can try to open the laptop and check the dc connection. There is a Laptop Repair Guide that shows you how to take apart a laptop, the sony may be made in a similar way. Sony Repair NYC

Sony vaio pcg-grt170 when I push the power button, the green light and 2 yellow lights blink one time but the computer will not turn on. I tried taking the battery out, checked the power cord.


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.

Sony Vaio ac adapter submerged


If the ac adapter was plugged into the laptop at the time may be bad news. Unplug AC adapter, take out the battery and hold power button for 10 seconds. Then connect AC adapter and hit power. If that doesn't work put battery back in without ac adapter and hit power button.

If neither test works bring to repair center for diagnosis. Best case AC adapter would need replacing. Worst case Motherboard fried.

Thanks
