Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FE870E/H Notebook

1 Answer

Charger pin which you connect to laptop socket gets heated.

The charger PIN where you insert into the socket of the laptop gets heated heavily.  I have a Sony vaio laptop. I thought that the charger is the problem then bought another charger with same specifications and tried but still the problem is the same. The pin gets heated and feels like it will melt.

Any solutions..

You will need to take this in to a BackStage center at any Sony Style store to have it looked at for defectives.

My tablet wont charge when put into mains charger this is the second time my charger connection feels lose

which end feels loose, the dc socket on the tablet or the mains (240volts) end (three pin plug?).

If the mains end, you need you need to get a new charger, it is dangerous to continue using it.

If it is the dc socket end, there is not a lot you can do about it, as it is solder to the mainboard, unless you can unsolder it and insert a new one.
Have you thought about gluing the dc side into place, so it cannot move?

How to concert laptop to tv

what do you mean by concert, Do you mean connect?
If you do then you will need a 15 pin to 15 pin vga lead. Connect it to the 15 pin socket on the laptop, connect the other end to the tv's 15 pin socket if it has one. Then select PC on the tv's input source menu using the tv remote. Switch on the laptop and it should display on the tv.

InvaMed Sovereign Mobility Scooter Model S888NR battery charger red light flashing to indicate fault. I have a multimeter and want to know how to test the charger. I need a wiring diagram and to identify...

Hi. Its easy to identify the pins out. Put the probes into the socket on the scooter to read the polarity. the two terminals on opposite sides will be the positive and negative battery supply. The pin to one side is to disable the scooter when the charger is connected. This terminal is normally connected to negative when the charger socket is in place.
Most faults like this are caused by a broken wire in the charger plug orv by a faulty connection in the scooter. Sometimes the charger socket is faulty, check for heat damage or melted plastic.
Check the battery connectors. Good luck. Neil.

The audio socket on my Nokia 6613 cell phone is broken inside the phone where the pin end of the charger plugs in. How can i repair this?

Its simple, provided you have a phone screw driver and you know a store where you can buy the audio broken socket and the pin end of your charger.

Turn off the phone, remove the battery, loose all the phone screws and carefully remove the phone cover. Locate the broken parts and buy a new one and do the replacement.

If I am not mistaken, what you are referring to as "pin end of charger" is called charging port.

If you can't get any of the above fixed, then I would advice you give it to an an expert to do for you. But try is yourself, its very simple but you just need to be careful. You can start learning for there.

I wish you the best.

My acer aspire 5315 doesnt charge properly.

I'm sorry to say that your initial fears are correct and the pin that the adapter connects to in the laptop is loose. This is a common problem with laptop's and can be easily dealt with.
Now I'm not going to tell you to open the laptop up and de-solder the adapter (unless you want me to).
Because this is a fiddly job and you have to order the correct adapter i recommend you take it to a reputable repair store and have them replace the adapter for you, don't let them tell you that you need a new motherboard as this is not the case at all, adapters can and do get regularly get fixed and is not that expensive.

Good luck.
