Its not for your model but should be close enough.
I am presuming that your laptop is OUT of warranty and you have a good idea of what you are doing?
Ensure you have an ESD strap on when touching components.
Good luck.
Let me know if this was useful.

Disassembly instructions for sony pcg-3f1m laptop


From experience a lot of these things are designed the same, that's why they have a root key.

This guide should be a general fix for all PCG in Sony's Vaio.

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-sony-vaio-pcg-k-notebook/

It's not going to be completely exact, but it should be next to exact with how you take it apart. Screws should be the same, panels, and such on so fourth.

I hope this helps.

The dc in will not fit the power plug anymore


I think the internal socket on the main circuit board has broken . This is common enough with old laptops.

It will have to be dismantled and the socket replaced, which is easy enough for a tech.

Sony vaio model pcg-61611L it turns on for 4 seconds and then it turns off using the ac adapter . help please


The charger may be bad, will it charge the battery? a common problem is the DC jack in the laptop breaks connection on the motherboard internittent operation or no power and shut down. If you can sub the charger that will tell if the power supply is bad or the problem is in the laptop. If the computer is the issue I recommend a professional because it will require extensive parts removal.

Loose power connection on sony vaio PCG 7V1M


I'm assuming the laptop is out of warrantee.
It sounds like the power adapter jack is broken. To replace this you have to take the laptop apart down to the motherboard, unsolder the jack, solder on the replacement and reassemble the laptop. This is not something a novice should attempt.
Check with your laptop repair shops. The replacement/repair should be under $100.

Can't seem to disassemble sony vaio pcg-grx550 laptop


try looking on the top of the laptop, around the keyboard to see if there is anything that will pop off, they are very bad about hiding more screws in places like that.

Power issue


Sony has a terrific website for support. I just bought a PCG-F610 and found everything I needed on the Sony website.

There seems to be a different model number for your unit on the Sony site. Go here:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-find.pl?mdl=pcg-7h1l+ and go through it step by step.

I love my new (old) Sony Vaio by the way. I got it on shopgoodwill.com. Goodwill doesn't put all of their stuff out locally. Some of it is held for auction and the site is shopgoodwill.com. I got the laptop for $132. Sure, it's a little older but I love it! Picked up a nice Toshiba Satellite for a song!!

Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It's probably the power socket on the laptop not the power jack on the AC adapter. You need to open the laptop by removing the casing screws. Then remove the motherboard from the base so a new socket can be soldered on.
