How do i check a serial number


Unfortunately there is no central database or system for this sort of thing.

It is possible (but extremely unlikely) that you could contact Sony customer support and tell them your concerns and supply the serial number. If the original owner registered their device it is remotely possible that Sony could contact them and inquire if the device was sold, stolen or reported missing. However not everyone registers their devices and if it was never registered this wouldn't work.

This is an extreme longshot, however, unless you are talking about a professional studio camera worth tens of thousands of dollars. It is highly doubtful that Sony would want to get involved in tracking down the legitimate owner of a standard consumer device.

Another option is to call the police department (probably where the seller is located) and inquire if that device with that serial number has been reported as stolen.

If you are buying a used item and have even the slightest doubt about it being stolen the best advice is do not buy it. Buying a stolen device is an arrestable offense (Receiving Stolen Property) and, although unlikely, you could get in trouble for it if there was an investigation or the seller got arrested subsequently.

A price that is "too good to be true" is a bad sign. Trust your gut and, even though it might be something you really want, avoid it if it seems questionable.

My Dell vastro Laptop is stolen and i dont know the MAC Address of it so that i can trace it... Plz help me finding my lappy's MAC address... I have its serial no. And also its saved as a paired...


My my that is a terrible thing to happen, the only thing I can suggest is report it stolen give the serial and information to the police more than likely I hate to say this you may have to write this laptop off and purchase another one. Tracking them is difficult once they are out of your possession. Regardless if you had the MAC address even.
If you report it stolen if the police find stolen items they can track a recovery by identifying its serial number. So doing a report would and possibly beat a blank and who knows you may be surprised one day when you get a call is this your laptop? I hope this happens for you but it will not if you do not report it and register it with the police as stolen.
Sorry for your loss really.......John

My panasonic viera 52 in plasma tv was stolen they left remote is there a way i can get the serial number


Unfortunately not. The serial number is only on the television or the box it came in. If you have not written it on your manual there is no other record of it.

I had a sharp XR-20X stolen and all I have is the box, I need the serial number for the police report can I find the serial number on the original box?


Sorry to hear that. Usually the number will be on a sticker on the box. I think Sharp TVs have 9 digit numerical serial numbers, e.g. 011223344. This number will have either "Serial" or S/N written next to it.

Your other option is to call Customer support. If you registered the warranty then Sharp will have the serial number of the TV registered to your name. I don't know your location so I've listed the numbers for USA and UK:

(USA) Customer Support: 1-800-237-4277
(UK) Customer Warranty Hotline

Hope this helps:

How do I find my product registration. my laptop was stolen and I need the serial number


If you have the original box in which your Laptop was sold to you, there are several barcoded and worded labels - At least one of these will show the manufacturer, model details AND the serial number of the Laptop that was sold in that box.
Hope you still have the box.
A useful hint, for your next computer - if you download Belarc Advisor (usually available on Majorgeeks.com) and run it on your new machine, it will give you FULL details of the Unit/Motherboard and all installed program serial numbers - so in the event the Police 'find' it you can prove that you own it... Just print out the details when it is finished.
