Question about Sony VAIO TR1MP Notebook

1 Answer

Camera no longer working

Hi, i've got an old tr1mp which works perfectly, except for the camera. All I get is a blue screen.

I've taken it apart and stripped the camera to the lens, cables and ribbons. If i press alittle on the camera/board i get some interference but still no picture - i've given up and have started to search for a replacement camera - to no avail!

Any help would be greatly appriciated

Replace motherboard fujitsu e8020

You take the laptop apart. Completely apart. I mean every piece of it. And you better make sure you replace it with the exact board or you'll be sorry. You might as well get some cups and label them for all the screws you pull out so you'll know where they came from. You might want to have a digital camera handy to take pictures before you pull something out. And once you've got the motherboard taken you, you'll need to get the CPU out of the old motherboard and put it into the new one. You'll have to do the same with the HeatSink if the new motherboard does not come with one. And you will need to buy some Thermal Paste to put on the CPU and Heat Sink to make sure they don't overheat. After you've got it all done you'll have to put everything back. Now would be a good time to pray to Allah, Budah, God, Jehovah, Jesus or whoever it is you serve. Because You're gonna need it to hope it works :)

How do I access the fan on an HP Pavilion DV3 Laptop? I've taken it apart with the online guide available but that failed to access the cooling fan. Laptop is overheating and it's clearly the...

Honestly, try harder. If you've taken the thing apart, you're more than half way there. You probably just need to unscrew more stuff and pry more parts out.

My camera isnt working and i just got my screen fixed. It says that it cannot be found.

You can check if the camera is installed by going to control panel

Vista :
Click Start > Control Panel > Click Classic View (right pane) > Device manager
look for Integrated Camera or Imaging Device

If its not listed try to Press FN+ESC at the same time, this function will enable /disable the camera.

IF ever it still cannot detect any camera please contact the lenovo warranty support at 1-877-453-6686 press option 2 then option 1. then tell them that after the screen replacement or after sending it to depot the camera is no longer working.

Hope this helps

I have a samsung n130 laptop/notebook. my screen has turned blue. it all starts correctly and is fully functioning except it's turned blue! help!

Graphics chip problem at the worst, but more likely to be the screen going faulty (by turning blue, I assume you mean a blue colour cast). I'd try making sure the VGA cable is secure in the back of the screen and to the motherboard. these mini netbooks are easy to take apart to check those parts.

Before doing so, see if it works ok on an external monitor, if it does, that eliminates the graphics card problem

Sony vaio tr1mp and the motion eye doesnt work. any ideas?

Here's a link to your support page.

It doesn't have any drivers listed for the Motion Eye so it must be bundled up with some of the other software available for download ( I hope ).

I would suggest you start poking around that page first and if you can't find what you're looking for to contact Sony direct via email or chat. They should be able to send you a link to download the latest and greatest version of software and driver for your camera.

Hope this info helps!

The hinges for the screen on my Sony TR1MP have

Unfortunately hinges are not repairable, so:

Buy hinges from here and replace them.

Unfortunately i can't find any service manual for TR1MP, so you should sort it out how to do it.

I just can say that you will need to remove palmrest, screen bezel, lcd screen to get access to hinges.
