Question about Sony VAIO PCG-Z1WAMP1 Notebook

1 Answer

My Sony Vaio PCG-z1wa suddenly shuts off if the battery is not attached. In other words, I have to be constantly charging the battery or it would shut off all of the sudden. It obviously seem like it is an electrical problem inside the computer. Any ideas of whjat the problem might be and how to solve it??

Sony vaio PCG-7142L keeps freezing


Can check if the battery is low ... or is not (or cannot) holding a good charge ... when you unplug it (from the charger) ... when this happens ?

If that is the case, it may "freeze" while it is busy trying to store the contents of your memory before it shuts down (or hibernates). Does it shut down (or goes into hibernate if you let it continue to "freeze") for a while ? If so, then it's your battery.

If the battery doesn't hold a good charge, the laptop will run only a short time (while unplugged) before it has to shut down due to low battery. And if this is the case, consider getting a replacement (new) battery. And follow the initial charging instructions (for a new battery) to lengthen the life of the battery.

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.

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-661L I shut it down and it won't restart


do you get any leds when charger is inserted? if yes, try to remove battery, insert charger and press power on. also, i would recommend you test the output of your charger using a multimeter to rule out the possibility of a faulty charger.

Shuts down on AC in less than 3 minutes after boot but not in safe mode. Works fine on battery only. Charges battery fine. DC output voltage 19.77 VDC. Sony Vaio PCG-K35


Sorry about your SONY problems.
You may want to try another charger,
Your charger changes your input voltage from A/C 120V / 220V to a constant regulated 19.77 ? Volts DC. or direct currant.
If your charger is allowing to much A/C to pass to the Unit, the unit may charge OK but with sense the incoming and as a protection, will shut down the power source.
I would take the charger to a Radio Shack or maybe someone qualified to check it !
If the charger is fairly old and you live in a lightning area, this may be the case.
If your unit will run without the charger attached, Boot it up regularly ( not in safe mode ) and make sure the battery if not at fault.
If you have a battery check utility !
Hope this information has helped you with your problem.
