REPLACE POWER JACK


http://www.ebay.com/itm/pcg-41217L-sony-vaio-DC-JACK-POWER-JACK-FOR-Input-Port-Socket-vpcsc-VPCEL-VPCF-V-/370628762815

Has two channels on the sides, to slide down into a channel formed in the outside edge, of the laptop Base Enclosure. (Bottom Cover)

Wires are soldered to it. Two of them. If there is a Red wire it goes to the Center terminal on the back of the jack. The Center hole is the Positive connection.

The Black wire goes to the outside terminal on the back of the jack.
(Negative)

Use good de-soldering/soldering skills. Do not make a cold solder joint. (Solder connection)

There are no exact Service Manuals listed for the Sony VAIO PCG-41217L Notebook PC. (It is also part of the VPCSC series. It is a VPCSC31FM)

However after you disassemble 100 laptops, or so; you find disassembly of all laptops follows a basic pattern.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-Vaio-vpcsc1afm-pcg-41217l-s-series-laptop-I5-blu-rau-MS-OFFICE-installed-/271101863505?pt=Laptops_Nov05&hash=item3f1eee2651

This shows me different key views of the laptop. I have also opened a separate window, with the User Guide from Sony eSupport.

The Ebay link shows detail of the Palm Rest Cover.
Shows it to be one piece with no separate Switch Cover.

(Switch Cover: Flat plastic strip above Keyboard, and below Display Assembly.
Usually has the Power On button, LED indicator lights, speakers, etc in it)

Also shows me a Bottom View.

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Lay the notebook on a clean, static free cloth, on your table.
Helps protect the table, and the laptop from scratching.

Lay the notebook bottom side up, Battery Compartment facing away from you.

Use a multi-compartment container, and label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws. Advise DO NOT mix them up.

You should be wearing an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
Average cost is around $3 to $6. Do not wear it, and/or connect to a good ground source, and when you are finished you can use your laptop for a doorstop.
Static 'kills' computers.

Example of an ESD wrist strap,

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case. I feel an Anti-Static Mat is unwarranted.

You can set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it.
Or a large metal knickknack. (Unpainted)

You are going deep into the laptop, and the Static sensitive Processor, and other hardware components could be 'zapped'.
Use ESD wrist strap.

All screws are removed from the bottom of the laptop. All around the perimeter (Outside), and the inner ones.
The optical drive (CD/DVD drive) will slide out.
After the optical drive is removed, look to see if there are any hidden screws on the outside edge of the laptop, that may have been covered by the optical drive. Remove them if so.


Remove the Harddrive.
Remove the Ram Memory.
Remove all peripheral components. (Dummy PCI card, etc)

I don't know if the Palm Rest Cover removes on this model, or the Bottom Cover. (Base Enclosure)

Bottom Cover removal style,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-sony-vaio-vgn-cs215j-laptop-replaciong-dc-jack-harness/

Yes. The bottom cover access panels are different than yours.
Posted for Keyboard removal, and Bottom Cover removal.

NOTE*
The Keyboard Cable STAYS attached to the Keyboard. It removes from the motherboard. There is NO plug connector on the end of the Keyboard Cable.
The Keyboard Cable is a FFC. Flat Flex Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flat-Flex-Cable.jpg

It ONLY plugs in, in one direction. Must go back the same way it was originally. Even if it was originally twisted.

For this reason you may wish to make a mark on one side of the cable, and a matching mark on the same side of the motherboard connector. (Sharpee?)

The motherboard connector is a type of ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.
It is composed of two separate pieces, but DOES NOT come completely apart.

There is a larger rectangular Bottom part. This is the Body, and it is stationary. Mounted to the motherboard, and doesn't move.

There is a smaller rectangular piece on Top.
This is the Locking Bar.
There are two styles presently used;

1) This style slides. Slides up towards the LCD screen.
ONLY slides about 2mm. That is a little more than 1/16th of an Inch.

A) Closed, or can be said as Locked;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-C650-C655/body-big/disassemble-toshiba-c655-11.jpg

B) Open, or Unlocked;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-C650-C655/body-big/disassemble-toshiba-c655-12.jpg

The Locking Bar is barely seen on top, and the sides. The 'tabs' of it on the sides, are eased towards the LCD screen, with the thumbnails.

2) This style flips up,

A) Locked;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L645D-L640D/big/laptop-disassembly-13.jpg

2) Unlocked;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L645D-L640D/big/laptop-disassembly-14.jpg

IF, the Locking Bar is removed from the Body, it is broken; or the Body hinge pins are broken.
EITHER way means MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT, and why I am being so detailed. Use care.

Here is what the Keyboard looks like,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/SONY-PCG-41217L-Keyboard-Silver-/261121017591?pt=PCA_Mice_Trackballs&hash=item3ccc0686f7

Put your mouse in the middle of the photo, and slide to the right side of the Keyboard.
See that half-moon tab sticking out, that looks to have a threaded hole in it?
Screw comes up from the Bottom of the laptop, and goes into this tab.

Looking closer at the open laptop view of the Keyboard, it almost looks like the Keyboard is under the Palm Rest Cover, and cannot be removed until the Palm Rest Cover is removed.
May just be the view, or my eyes.

That is about as far as I can take you.
Post the problems you run into in a Comment, and we'll try to work them out together.

L500D has a broken power supply connector inside the laptop. Is this repairable? Regards, Matt


The 'power supply connector' is the DC Power Jack on the laptop.
DC IN

Repairable?
Yes Matt. Not really that difficult at all.

With most laptops the DC Power Jack is soldered directly to the motherboard.
Not so with the Toshiba Satellite L305 series of Notebook PC's.

The DC Power Jack has it's own cable, which is connected to the motherboard.

The DC Power Jack itself is a small rectangular shape. It slides down into a slot (Trough) made in the outside of the Bottom Case.
The cable leading from the DC Power Jack is composed of four wires, which are attached to a connector,

http://www.batterysupport.com/toshiba-satellite-l305-s5955-jack-p-329251.html

A) This is a pictorial guide to disassembling a Satellite L305 series of Notebook PC, down to the bare motherboard,
[ You don't have to remove the motherboard in order to access the DC Jack]

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L505-L505D/remove-laptop-motherboard-1.htm

B) This a link to a free Service Manual for the Toshiba Satellite L500 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Scroll down to the second Satellite heading.
Begins with - Satellite A10.
Drop down to the second line, go to the right and click on - L500

This is a PDF file. It may take up to 30 seconds, (Sometimes more), for the first page to come up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.
(Page navigation may not be at the top of the PDF file. Hover your mouse cursor towards the bottom of the page)

(Pages 127, and 128 deal directly with the DC Power Jack.
Disassembly procedures begin on Page 121.
Read the Anti-Static Precautions in - Before you begin on Page 129 FIRST )

Observe Anti-Static Precautions
1) Buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap. (Electro Static Discharge)
The average cost is around $3 to $5.
Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.

{I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case.
Perhaps you have a large metallic object to use instead. (Unpainted) A large metal serving tray, or large metal knickknack}

2) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove. Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
{If a multi-compartment container is not available you can substitute with a clean egg carton. Label each egg holder }

Some screws are VERY similar to others. Do Not mix them up.

3) Make a record as you disassemble. Make notes, drawings, and/or photograph/video record.
Nice to have a record to refer back to in case you are interrupted, and have your own personal notes besides the manual, and guide.

Hot shoe plastic section broke on flash unit


I managed it by buying a broken (non-working) F32X from an auction service for something like 5 bucks. I just made sure (by looking at the photos) that the hotshoe was intact.

Here's how to disassemble and replace foot (I got to this by trial and luckily no error ^^).

  1. Unscrew 2 small screws located under the battery flip cover.
  2. Put the lamp (moving part) in the upright position.
  3. Unscrew 1 small screw above the infared sensor (below the main lamp part which you moved to the upright position).
  4. Remove the cover of the infared sensor by gently pulling forward.
  5. On two sides of the infared sensor there are two small clips which hold the 2 casing pieces together. Pull them away from the casing just a tiny bit and use something to keep them in this position (I used 2 small nails). Then pull the pieces apart gently.
  6. Just behind the hotshoe casing you can see a small plastic inset -- place a screwdriver sideways between this inset and the hotshoe to help you separate the two casing parts. Be careful when doing that, don't use too much force, wiggle the casing instead to make this easier (this is the most tricky part).
  7. When the electronics is exposed, there is a single screw in the middle of the motherboard. Remove the screw and gently pull the motherboard away from the casing. You do not have to pull it all the way or disconnect any cables, you just need to make sure the bottom battery connectors are pulled out of the casing just a little, because then under the two middle battery connectors (looking from the top, as if you were putting the batteries in) you can see two screws!
  8. Unscrew those two screws, and the hotshoe will come apart. Pull it out gently and remove a single electrical connector that connects it to the flash.
Do this in case of your working lamp (with a broken hotshoe) and your replacement lamp (with a good hotshoe), and just move the good hotshoe to your working lamp.

Took me about an hour to do this (most time was spent on trying to figure out how to disassemble the lamp), and the lamp works perfectly.

Warning: better test disassembly on the replacement lamp, since even if you break it, all you need it for is the hotshoe, so you can practice on it. Only after you learn how to disassemble the F32X do this on your working lamp.

Hope this helps!

Ipod doest not work


Do you mean there is no power to the iPod when it is not connected? Or that you are not able to manually manage the music within the iPod using iTunes? If it will not power on without power behind it, you just need a new battery. you can view a free video on batter replacement at the following web address. also the second web page will take you to an iPod parts online store. And just in case you need the written directions I have posted them below :) Let me know if this is not the issue you are having, or if this does not resolve it.

http://fixyouripod.weebly.com/
http://www.ifixit.com/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Top Case Removal Begin by using a flat tool to separate the white plastic front case from the silver backcase. You will need to stick your flat tool into the crevice, work it down into the crevice,and then pry up so that the casing separates. Apply enough pressure so that your flat tooldoes not slip and scratch your iPod!Continue separating the casing by gently prying up all the way around the unit. It shouldbe much easier to pry the casing apart after you get the initial corner started.

With the casing separated, grasp the top half (the part with the front bezel) and flip it over. Note that there is an orange cable in the top left corner that connects the iPodlogic board to the headphone ports. If you gently grasp the cable and pull, it will slide out of its connector on the headphone port module board.

Headphone Jack Board Removal Before proceeding, you must remove the top case.There are two t6 screws holding the headphone port in place. Remove both of these screws. You can now remove the headphone module.

Hard Drive Removal Before proceeding, you must remove the top case.Hold the hard drive up, and remove the black tape on the hard drive connector. This will reveal the hard drive cable’s connector to the logic board.To remove the hard drive, grasp the cable (thumb on top index finger onbottom) and gently pull the cable out (away from you and the connector)The hard drive will now be free of the iPod logic board.

Hard Drive Cable Removal Before proceeding, remove the hard drive.To remove the hard drive cable, hold the drive, and gently pull up on the cable.It should come out easily.

Headphone Connector Cable Removal Before proceeding, remove the hard drive.To remove the headphone connector cable, Grasp the cable, and gently pull up. It should come out easily.

Logic Board Removal Before proceeding, remove the hard drive and headphone connector cable First, disconnect the battery connector by grasping the cable and gently pulling up to disconnect the cable from the logic board connector. Remove the 6 black T6 Screws.
With the screws removed slightly move the logic board to the left to give more access to the clickwheel cable. Gently pull this cable to free it from the logic boardconnector.The logic board will now easily come free from the case. The LCD will still be attachedto the logic board.

LCD Removal Before proceeding, first remove:Hard DriveHeadphone Connector CableLogic BoardTo remove the LCD, grasp the green connector cable, and gently pull to free it from the logic board connector. It should come out easily.


Battery Removal Before proceeding, first remove:Hard DriveHeadphone Connector Cable Logic Board To remove the battery, use a flat tool to pry the battery up. It is held on with a lightadhesive, and should come up by using just a little force. Lift the battery out of the unit.

Easynote r1004 d.c. input socket broken


You really have to completely remove the motherboard from the case to do this. If you cannot find the exact replacement jack (not called socket in parts catalogues) you can just run the wires out of the case to whatever jack that will accomodate your adaptor. If you do not have the remove/replace procedures and still want to tackle this then make sure that you keep track of where EACH screw goes as they do vary in size/threads and pay careful attention to the ribbon connectors that connect to the keyboard, display and touchpad. The bottom of the laptop has little icons that relate to what the screw releases (like a keyboard icon) and even the screw designations molded into the bottom case. If this is a maiden voyage into laptop repair then research or you will learn the hard way. An ESD strap is essential here and all drives/battery/PC modules removed. Good luck. ~Steve

Opening the case to repair broken power connector


FIRST FAIR WARNING: This take apart is best left to the repair tech's at an authorized repair facility. There are 6 snaps, two on the top, two on the bottom and one on eash side. I used a thin blunt tip letter opener and started at the top. This didn't leave any marks on the case that would tip off the repair tech's that you goobered it up inside which you will do if you proceed! Release the two at the top first, then the two on the bottom. Now release the one on the side where the power button is located. Open the case on the power button side only about 1/4 inch and slide the bottom off the top being careful not to separate the power cord and headphone connector plugs from the board that they a fastened to inside the case. SECOND FAIR WARNING: It is very easy to pull the connector plugs from the board and this will really convince the repair tech's that you ruined your $350 GPS. Good luck and don't say I didn't warn you!!!!!!
