Check the charger... Especially the adapter that connects your laptop to the power source. It might have burned. Obtain a new one and try with it. But I advice you to try a different charger that i compartible with your laptop and see if it is charging. Make sure that the charger you get is in a working condition so that you may be able to pin point if the the problem is with your charger or with the charging system of your computer.

SOURCE: how to replace power jack on sony vaio pcg-k33

Short version?

1.Remove the AC adapter if plugged in, remove the battery.

2.Wear an ESD wrist s-trap, and have it connected to a good ground. Work on a table, have a container with multiple compartments for the screws, and mark where each screw came from. There are as many as 65 screws, and 8 different sizes.

3.Completely disassemble the laptop, down to the bare motherboard in your hand. Remove the LCD screen assembly. No Processor, Cooling Tube, Heatsink, Ram Memory modules, CD/DVD drive, Harddrive, Wireless Antenna module, Keyboard, Nada!

4.Buy a replacement DC Power Jack.
Here is an example of one,

http://powerjack.us/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&keyword=Sony+Vaio+PCG-K33

5.Use the correct tools.
If you're a really experienced tech, you can use a 30 to 40 Watt soldering iron. No.2 tip. Have a clean damp sponge nearby, to constantly clean the tip.
Make sure the tip is clean and tinned correctly.

Or use a medium priced soldering station.

I advise using soldering wick, (Desoldering Braid), instead of a Desoldering Tool. Works much better.

5.Use the correct soldering procedures.

Linger too long when heating up the solder joint, to remove the DC Power Jack, and you stand the chance of burning the board. (Motherboard)

Also could lift the Circuit Trace right off of the board.
(Circuit Trace may be thought of as a very thin, copper wire on the motherboard. It isn't, but this explanation will do)

Do any of the two errors above, and you can use the motherboard for a Frisbee.

My method for removing the DC Power Jack, is to pull up on one lead at a time. Use constant pressure with my finger, and thumb. (Don't get 'Godzilla' on it. It can break. Everything has it's limits!)

I heat the solder joint for that one lead, and try to pull it up, a little out of the board. Then I move over to another lead, heat it, and pull up slightly on it. Keep moving from lead to lead, until finally they start pulling out.

After the jack is removed, the area needs to be cleaned. I use 90 percent Isopropyl Alcohol, and Q-tips.

CAUTION!!!!
This is HIGHLY FLAMMABLE! Keep it away from that hot soldering iron, and use in a Well ventilated area.
Always immediately return the cap to the bottle, and tighten the cap well.
Have fire precautions ready, just in case an accident happens.
Better Safe, Than Sorry!

The area of solder, around the hole in the board for the jack, may need to be buffed off. (Fine sandpaper in a tight roll, or a fingernail file using the fine side)

All areas that will accept solder need to be clean, and tinned.
Tinned, ...is the area is cleaned, a light spot of flux is touched around the rim of the hole, then solder is applied. The hole's rim then has fresh solder around it, and is ready to accept the DC Power Jack lead.

Be sure you have good solder joints! You may not see a cold solder joint, until you put the laptop back together, and the jack doesn't work. Then you get to take it all back apart, look at your solder joints, and go "OH".

This may help you in disassembling,

SOURCE: REPLACING A BROKEN POWER JACK ON A SONY VAIO

Hi:
The power jacks can be bought on line for less than $10, but the fun part is the repair. The laptop must be dis assembled to get at the power jack, and when you do get to it, it takes a deft hand and soldering skills to swap one out successfully.
I have done a few and am personally only about 50% successful. There are electronics shops that swap out the power jacks for about $150, and guarrantee their work.

SONY VAIO PCG-61611l has a very dim screen


Normally, this is in part due to you not replacing it with what should've been an LCD. The reason why it's dim is because those diodes are not getting the required voltage to emit as it should. LCD's work under a different concept where crystals use the light modulating properties of liquid crystals. Liquid crystals do not emit light directly as LED's, because it stand for light emitting diodes.

Sony vaio pcg-61611L randomly turns off


It may just be overheating. The fan inside might be not working properly or it could be clogged up with dust where the vents are. If you feel confident enough it would be worth you stripping it down and checking the insides.

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.

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..
