The screen in dim to preserve the life of the battery. When you place the cable in to your laptop does it light up???

Depress the "FN" button on your keyboard (3 to the left of spacebar) and at the same time press F6 key or it may be another key F2,F3 etc until your background light illuminates.

Hope this helps

My VAIO also dims if i leave it alone for 1 or 2 mins or so.

And if i use the touch pad for a quick swish then the dim returns to brightest state. Fn + Brightness adjustment won't work.

And the power management appears normal
(Running at max all time)

SONY VAIO PCG-61611l has a very dim screen


Normally, this is in part due to you not replacing it with what should've been an LCD. The reason why it's dim is because those diodes are not getting the required voltage to emit as it should. LCD's work under a different concept where crystals use the light modulating properties of liquid crystals. Liquid crystals do not emit light directly as LED's, because it stand for light emitting diodes.

Dim screen


sounds like your backlight inverter or lamp has failed. It is worth fixing if you can find someone to do it for a reasonable price. It isn't something I would recommend trying yourself unless you have laptop repair experience. If you just want to purchase a new laptop, you can put your old one on Ebay or Craigslist. I can assure you someone will buy it as is.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

I am having a problem with my sony vaio laptop. When i turn it on the screen lights up normal but then it seems to go into sleep mode right away, can anyone please tell me how to fix this problem. Thank...


go into the power settings. The power saver can dim almost instantly and also shut down fairly fast if the settings aren't correct. If vista start type in power and click power options. If xp go to control panel and choose maintenance and then power settings.

No hdmi sound, no sound devices


Try to use external or internal sound card, if you find it working it means that the sound device of your Sony Vaio is the real problem. This means that you have to use another sound card device to be installed in your Sony PC, because built-in soundcards is connected to the motherboard of the PC so fixing that problem will cost you a lot.

Sony Vaio wont boot


Hm, maybe your bios battery is dead. Try to buy a new one, and boot than boot it. A bios battery is usually under the keyboard.

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.
