Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FJ270/B Notebook
Hi, I want to buy Vaio model online, but seller says that he had broked the port that the power cord plugs into and now the battery will not chatge. he had bumped the power cord on the corner of his desk and broke where it plugs in. So can u plzz tell me how much it may cost to repair it. I found if it had damaged the motherboard it will be very expensive, but i have not asked from seller yet. thanks for ur reply
That repair isn't expensive at all. However, most service centers will include a labour tax for doing this because dissasembling laptops is pretty tricky and time consuming. However you should make sure that's the REAL and ONLY problem. If the seller is trying to hide something, this can turn out in a very ugly and expensive situation, because any problem other then that power cord problem will be expensive to fix. You should try to see the laptop with your own eyes. If the power cord is unable to make a contact with the plug, the laptop can't be powered up, therefore it woun't be startable (because no power gets in, nothing to charge the battery). So this could hide some other problems and by the time you get the laptop to a service center, the buyer would have made his money on this. Since this should be a cheap repair (if he's honest about it) you could ask him to make the repair himself and you will include the repair price in the overall price for the laptop. I think it's the safest way if you are unable to actually see the laptop before you buy it. If you have further questions please don't hesitate to ask them.

If the mainboard is damaged its almost impossible to fix i recommend to make sure that the board is ok if so a little soldering to the power plug could fix the problem and cost u some dollars.
