Sony Vaio ac adapter submerged

My bedroom flooded last week, the ac adapter for my laptop was on the floor and got wet (the laptop never got wet). I'm pretty sure the power was on so when it lost power thru the power cord the battery went dead. Now when I plug it up the green light comes on on the adapter, but the computer will not power on. Is my computer fried or will replacing the ac adapter fix my problem?

If the ac adapter was plugged into the laptop at the time may be bad news. Unplug AC adapter, take out the battery and hold power button for 10 seconds. Then connect AC adapter and hit power. If that doesn't work put battery back in without ac adapter and hit power button.

If neither test works bring to repair center for diagnosis. Best case AC adapter would need replacing. Worst case Motherboard fried.

Thanks

Battery/Ac adapter issues for Sony VAIO Model


So I gather the laptop does not run when the battery is in and the AC adapter is not connected? Laptop batteries tend to ware down over time and will need to be replaced as they end up not being able to hold any charge. Look online for a new replacement of the battery under the model number of your laptop

Sony vaio not charging while charger plugged in


Seemingly your laptop dc jack is dead. How to confirm it? If you should wiggle your laptop charger on a position to let your laptop charge, it indicates your dc jack is loose. Either replace it or repair it. If your dc jack works well, please check your ac adapter. Maybe your charger is dead.

Recently, the battery of my vaio died, but I could still manage by getting the power from outside sourse. However, I couldn't even turn it on last night, even though the vaio was still getting the power...


eventhough the light indicator on the ac adapter is still working, it doesnt mean that the ac adapter is still working fine..

  • the problem could be the ac adaptor itself, the dc in port of the computer or maybe the motherboard.
if the computer is still in the warranty, sony will cover the battery, ac adapter replacement, or process repair if needed. you can call them at 888 476 6972 or 239 768 7669

I have a Sony Vaio CR-120E laptop. The battery on the laptop is dead, so I took it out. Can I run only the AC Adapter to power the computer? Also is there a setting within the computer to set AC Adapter...


Yes, you can start using the laptop only with AC input and there is no extra settings to configure the same. But you will be not getting any backup when the power goes.

Would any 16volt ac adapter be ok to charge my PCG-VX89 vaio notebook?


you can use any laptop AC adapter DC output-16V and 4A (current). if its jack size natch your laptop DC jack.
if the adapter DC current less than 4A (over 2.5A at least) you should only make the battery charging without laptop turn on!!!
please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks!

Noise coming from AC adapter


There is a possibility that the power managment sestem in the computer has malfunctioned and is back feeding and burning up the supplies. You will need to take this in for a professional diagnostic to find out if you have a back feed problem. A back feed problem is rare, but not unheard of.
