A repair/break like that will not be in a service manual. For that you will need to find a laptop repair service or attempt to fix it yourself. You can usually find laptop parts on ebay fairly cheap.

CMOS battery Sony Vaio PCG-4G1L


Instructions
    • 1 Open the Vaio screen until you can easily access the keyboard.
    • 2 Locate the plastic bar that borders the top of the keyboard. Insert the flat head screwdriver at one end of the bar and gently pry it up until you can grip the edge with your fingers.
    • 3 Pry the other side of the bar up with the screwdriver and pull out the entire bar, being careful to mind the ribbon cord that connects the keyboard to the computer.
    • 4 Remove the two screws on either side of the keyboard that secure it to the computer. Slide the keyboard up and place it to the side.
    • 5 Remove the four screws on the exposed metal plate that covers the motherboard and remove it. You should now see the CMOS battery in the bottom-right-hand corner of the motherboard.
    • 6 Remove the battery by gently pulling it up and off the motherboard. Replace it with the same model battery (available at any computer store or online). Reassemble the computer the same way you took it apart.

What are the 2 wires that run through the right side hinge?


It's your display wires. They probably got pinched too hard when it broke.

How do you fix a dm4 Hinge that is broke where it connects to the screen


You can buy hinges on ebay at:

http://www.ebay.com

Just type your computer make and model in the search followed by lcd hinges.

If the hinges are broken where the lcd screen connects to the base of the laptop then you will have to remove the screws from the bottom of the laptop and remove the strip that is at the top of the keyboard to get to them.

If the hinges on the side of the lcd frame is broken then you will have to remove the plastic strip that is around the lcd screen. Remove the plastic or rubber bumpers on the plastic strip then you will see screws to remove to remove the plastic strip. Then you will see hinges and screws on the side of the lcd screen that you can remove. Once you have them removed you can lean the lcd lid forward so that it drops in your hand. Don't let it drop on the keyboard, just into your hand and not too far because there is a cable on the back of the lcd that you don't want to damage. The cable can be taken loose from from the lcd at the back near the top if you like. Sometimes there might be a piece of tape securing it. If the lcd screen does not come out then there are screws on the 4 corners that is securing it and the hinges.

To change the LCD screen after I revove the 4 philips screws what do I do next?


Hi,

The actual LCD screen is installed within a wide plastic bezel, which can be lifted right off after removing the two screws. The bezel is hinged at the top on plastic tabs. The screen is wrapped around the sides and back with a metalized foil to reduce RF interference. You can see the opposing springs on the bottom hinge that keep the laptop screen in place when you adjust the tilt.

How to reattach the F12 key on my Sony Vaio laptop. My cat scratched my F12 key off of the laptop. There is a little white plastic square frame loose on top of the key.Pressing the key pad down on top of...


Sounds like the cat did more then just damage the F12 key. If the plastic connectors underneath the F12 are damaged or the white tactile is damaged then they keyboard is done in that aspect. What worries me more is that the right hand side of the keyboard is not usable.

What needs to happen is the keyboard needs to be taken out and reseated back into its slot on the motherboard and see if you can use all of the keys again minus the F12.

If you can then use the keyboard until you can get another one.

If you get the same results (not being able to use the right hand side of the keyboard) then the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced ASAP or you can use an external usb keyboard for now.

Screen swap out for a sony vaio vgn-fw235j


With the power disconnected. First off there are 4 rubbers on the screen bezel itself. Take those off and then unscrew the 4 screws.

Then take off the screen bezel itself, it will be held in by clips so you may have to use a flathead to pry it off.

Once you expose the screen, there might be one screw on each side holding in each screen hinge, if so that those screws out.

At this point there will be 4 screws holding the screen in on both the left and right side hinge.

Go ahead and take off the 4 screws on each side of the hinge and this will loosen the screen completely.

At this point go ahead and unseat the connector that goes to the inverter toward the bottom of the screen. Also unseat the connector that goes to the back of the lcd.

At this point you will have the old screen removed.

Now go ahead and screw in the screws on the left hinge and right hinge so the new screen will stay in place. Go ahead and hook up the connector to the inverter, hook up the connector to the back of the lcd. At this point go ahead and turn on the laptop and just verify that the screen works and that there is no defects such as lines in the screen or weird colors. If there is then you'll need another screen.

If you have the 2 screws, screw each one on each side of the hinges to keep the hinges in place.

Then go ahead and snap the front bezel in place, then go ahead and put the 4 screws in place and then the rubbers on and you'll have a working laptop with a new screen in place.

Gateway left hinge broke


Definately an easy fix.

I suggest looking on eBay for a donor chassis.
Sometimes they can be had relatively cheap CLICK HERE (this one has both hinges broken however) - and sometimes just the parts you are looking for are available CLICK HERE (this is for the RHS one though).

An entire donor PC is adviseable, because usually the repair is not just the hinge that broke - as the rest of the lid is plastic!

Once the trim above the keyboard is pried off, you will see the monitor cable, and hinge screws.

The trim around the monitor must be dis-assembled and pried into 2 parts.
Then the hinge & Support are either screwed into the side of the screen, or the back of the lid.

Most look like this...

Replace reverse of removal.

HERE is a link that will describe it better and give you a visual reference.
You are interested in step #s 7, 8, 11, 12

Once the screen is free of the chassis - its time to remove the little rubber scerw covers in the lid, and disassemble.

Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Sony vaio vgn fw21l,loose hinge


My hinge broke on my Sony VAIO and the solution I found was to purchase the Service Manual for the laptop then take the laptop apart and find out which part number the hinge was. Then purchase the hinge directly from USA, which took 1 week to come through and mended the laptop myself.

Sony are doing this to everyone who has problems with the hinges of the laptops as they state the guarantee covers everything EXCEPT the hinges. If you can get proof from a pc repair shop that the hinges are a design flaw then Sony will repair it free of charge, but they will still request a Diagnostic fee which will be refunded if the problem you described turns out to be true.

What Your Actually looking For Are Drivers For The:- VGN-FS485B.
So many people get confused, with Sonys Model And Make Numbers.
Theres usually 1 located Underneath The Base of the Laptop, And 1 On the lower right/Hand/Side Of The Screen Or hinge Cover. ( Differs On Newer models )
The Number on the Screen/Hinge Is usually the Actual Number to search Drivers/Parts et,c For.
If you Go here:- http://support.vaio.sony.co.uk/downloads/preinstalled/preinstalled.asp?site=voe_en_GB_cons&c=0&s=VGN-FS&m=2203
This should lead you to all you require.
