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)

The dim display could be caused by a faulty inverter. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp that provides the back light to the LCD screen.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

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.

Ok i set an password for my sony vaio laptop but it wont let me log on into my computer how can i fix this problem?


Hi,

It is unfortunate that you forgot the password that you set on the computer. As of try booting the computer to safe mode, usually the default administrator account will not have a password. If it works then you can change the password of your profile.

Otherwise, recovery will be required. As you have not mentioned the VAIO model #, it is difficult to tell if the computer was shipped with recovery partition or discs. You need to perform a recovery using the applicable one in this situation.

Thanks!!!!

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.

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.
