Malfunctioning keyboard Sony Vaio PCG K415S

Hello!

Several keys on my board are not working. I´m told by my local guy that the keyboard got damp whilst I hid it in my house when I was away!

Can anyone advise me re where I can buy a new keyboard for the above? I live in Spain and I´m told I have to send my laptop to Madrid to be repaired.

If I was able to buy a keyboard, the guy says it´s easy to replace.

Muchas gracias,
Annie

Ebay or somewhere similar is your best bet for getting a 'used' and therefore much cheaper replacement. Just type in the make/model of your machine..

Most Keyboards are pretty easy to replace and if your not sure how to do it, run a search on the web or post on here with your specific model etc. If its put together anything like my Sony all you have to do is remove a bit of trim above the keyboard (carefully) and there are 4/6 screws holding the keyboard in place. Remove these and the keyboard just slides out. Then it's just a matter of disconnecting the ribbon and reversing the order to put it all back together.

Good luck, J

You should replace the whole keyboard. I am guessing you wore the letters off of the keys. It is easy to replace and you don't have to worry about snapping off the key holds. If you are really attached to this keyboard for some reason you can find new keys at replacementlaptopkeys.com

PCG-K415B is the correct model number the label is possibly the service tage or something.

Here are the specifications of your laptop
  • Intel Celeron D Processor 345 3.06GHz / 533MHz FSB
  • 512MB DDR SDRAM - Low cost double memory Offer - call for details
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD Dual Layer Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs, DVD+, DVD- and large Dual Layer DVD
  • 15.4" XGA xblacklogo.jpg Widescreen TFT Screen
  • ATI Mobility Radeon 345M 64MB shared graphics
  • Integrated wireless 802.11b/g LAN - Call for advice on Wireless networking
  • Integrated 3-in-1 card reader –Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition
  • Includes Sony Software Bundle
My guess is that the laptop is around 1 or 1and half year old as the celeron 3.06GHz is a relatively new processor.

Sony vaio pcg k 15 notebook beeps on starup


If you hit some keys and then it starts - it indicates a stuck key on the keyboard. Check the keys to make sure they are all fully up and nothing has been spilled on them or gotten stuck under them. Keys can be removed usually by prying gently under the edge and replaced by pressing down firmly. Probably what is happening is the if a program opens and you see a series of 4's is that the "4" key is the one sticking partially and preventing boot up. The beeeep is simply to tell you something is wrong with hardware, ie: keyboard, mouse, memory will all generate a long beep or several short beeps. The owners manual will list beep codes to help you determine where to look to find the problem.

Sony PCG TR3A Green power light on Yellow Battery light On


If it's still under warranty I'd send it to Sony. If not, it may be better to get it fixed locally. It's easier to have a face to face conversation and explain exactly what is going on. From what you've told us, it sounds like the power circuit on the mother board is bad.
Hope things go well for you on this one.
