Sony vaio vgn fw21l,loose hinge

The right hand hinge,on the power point side of my sony vaio vgn fw21l has become loose and wobbly,i have contacted sony about this,only 2 b told that its going to cost me the earth just to get it looked at ,and that i shouldnt be too worried anyway,as the laptop will work just fine even with this problem,can anyone give me advice,or experience of this fault,should i be concerned?,or will it really be ok to just leave it as it is?,many thanks i have got exactly the same problem . i do believe that this is a design fault , its going back tom to sony though thay say that if its not their fault i will have to pay £165.00 for them to just look at it . well . im going to take this further and prove that this is design fault . this is a mobile lap top and should withstand the slight pulling force of the power wire or the constant push on the On /Off switch . sony should do the honourable thing and recall all these models , either replace or reimburst customers .

HINGES PRBLM


Yes. Strip down the laptop and screen. The hinges will be exposed and they can be tightened up. Use care because if too tight, they will break the plastic case.

Sony vaio vgn fw21l,loose hinge


I am a PC Technician, I also happen to own a Vaio with this cool but very fragile power button. It will be okay to leave it like that.I had the same issue and I repaired mine because I have experience tearing down laptops. The labor to get to that little plastic piece is extensive. If the situation arises I can explain to you how to do this, ill even have pictures as it is nearly impossible to find service manuals for new Vaios. But it will be fine if it is a little loose.

Sony vaio vgn fw21l,loose hinge


My hinge broke on my Sony VAIO and the solution I found was to purchase the Service Manual for the laptop then take the laptop apart and find out which part number the hinge was. Then purchase the hinge directly from USA, which took 1 week to come through and mended the laptop myself.

Sony are doing this to everyone who has problems with the hinges of the laptops as they state the guarantee covers everything EXCEPT the hinges. If you can get proof from a pc repair shop that the hinges are a design flaw then Sony will repair it free of charge, but they will still request a Diagnostic fee which will be refunded if the problem you described turns out to be true.

Tighten the resistance at the hinge of the screen of the Vaio laptop


On most models the hinges are a pressed in, pressure brake type hinges, and when the hinge start getting worn to the point of not holding the screen, then they can only be replaced in order to fix it. You can sometimes get away with replacing just one. On some models there are screws on the hinges that come loose that can cause this. The screws aren't for adjusting, they are basically just set screws. You won't which is the problem know until you take the covers off. Most likely you're going to have to replace the hinges. Try Ebay for the replacements.

What Your Actually looking For Are Drivers For The:- VGN-FS485B.
So many people get confused, with Sonys Model And Make Numbers.
Theres usually 1 located Underneath The Base of the Laptop, And 1 On the lower right/Hand/Side Of The Screen Or hinge Cover. ( Differs On Newer models )
The Number on the Screen/Hinge Is usually the Actual Number to search Drivers/Parts et,c For.
If you Go here:- http://support.vaio.sony.co.uk/downloads/preinstalled/preinstalled.asp?site=voe_en_GB_cons&c=0&s=VGN-FS&m=2203
