I need to remove the keyboard to fit a new power jack socket.

How do I remove a keyboard from a Sony Vaio PCG-7Y1M? There seems to be a screw at the back in the middle that I cannot find to remove.

How to open keyboard of sony vaio pcg-6rfl


Remove the Power Cord and the Battery. Turn the laptop over and start removing screws from the bottom of it. There might be screws on the bottom that hold the keyboard, normally they will have the keyboard icon by them. Once you have the screws removed Look inside the battery case to remove any screws. Sometimes there will be screws that hold the keyboard and the strip that is above the keyboard inside the battery case.

Next turn the laptop back over and open the lcd lid. Remove the strip that is above the keyboard. Be careful because there might be a cable attached to the bottom of the strip. Once the strip is removed there might be screws that it was hiding that hold the keyboard so remove them. Now you can lift the keyboard out, but be careful because there is a cable attached to the back of the keyboard.

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,

Can't seem to disassemble sony vaio pcg-grx550 laptop


try looking on the top of the laptop, around the keyboard to see if there is anything that will pop off, they are very bad about hiding more screws in places like that.

Power issue


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:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-find.pl?mdl=pcg-7h1l+ and go through it step by step.

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!!

It's probably the power socket on the laptop not the power jack on the AC adapter. You need to open the laptop by removing the casing screws. Then remove the motherboard from the base so a new socket can be soldered on.

"Burned" DC in power adapter


hi there generally all laptops can be opened more or less in the same way first undo all screws in the back, next you need to remove the panel where the power button is most of them just unclip and come off easily using a flat screw driver, you'll probably find some more screws underneath,if the hinges covers are part of the panel they should come off with the panel if seperate just check for any screws if not they just unclip undo any further screws, next unscrew the keyboard, unplug it, unplug the mouse pad, then the top part of the laptop base should just lift easily, make sure you remove the battery before you start all this, any drives, hard drive, etc hope this would be of some help regards
