Question about Sony VAIO VGN-CS220J/W Notebook

1 Answer

A bit of citus soda was spillied in the top right speaker while the laptop was on and then it just shut off. Now the laptop won't start up ...the vaio screen sometimes just flashes once and then the screen goes blank and the battery light is a steady orange. Even if the battery is taken out and the laptop is plugged to the AC, it does the same thing (black screen, steady orange battery light).

Hi k_angelc,

Since that water is spilled inside the Computer, please do not turn it ON or connect to the AC Power. This will cause serious Hardware damages in the Computer. I would recommend that you contact Sony Service Center to repair the Computer immediately.

You can contact Sony Service Assistance Team at 1-800-282-2848 to setup a service at Sony Service Center.

Hope this helps.

Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Monitor won't turn on after a few hours of being shut off


If it EVER works, then the problem is not a failed part, but a weak part. The most likely component type to give you such problems are capacitors. But very few repair techs know how to find such problems, and even fewer have the equipment needed to find the bad one(s) in-circuit. The failure mode is high ESR (ESR means Equivalent Series Resistance). The lower the ESR, the better. Capacitors with high ESR cannot stabilize circuits which demand high pulse currents, such as in switch mode power supplies.

Power does not come on


The soda is really corrosive with the metal inside the laptop. You probably have a fried capacitor that decided to work for a little bit and then shorted out again. Take it in for repairs.

Your statement is a bit confusing. Try thi,s unplug AC, remove battery, replace battery, plug into AC outlet push on/off button start normally. If that fails repeat and at boot repeatedly tapping F-12 to enter restore/recovery.

Laptop gets hot and shuts off. Do you have a solution?


sure actually, it is helpful to check to see if there is blockage in the fan, which can be handled with a small vacuum from outside.

also, raising the back of laptop above the table, such as with tops of bottles or soda bottles can provide some needed air underneath

HAVE A KENMORE REFRIGERATOR - MODEL # 253.60734407 - HAVING PROBLEM WITH THE MAIN DOOR STAYING CLOSED. IF I PLACE 2 LITES OF SODA ON THE DOOR. THE DOOR WON'T STAY SHUT. HAVE THERE BEEN ANY OTHER...


The main thing that makes a fridge door shut is that it falls shut because it is set at a slight angle with the front of the machine higher than the back. You may find the solution is as simple as making the fridge tip back a tiny bit more by turning the front feet clockwise to screw them out of the chassis and make them longer, causing the fridge to tip back a little and the door to fall shut as it should.

My Z205 worked when I first got it, but now it won't work. I have plugged it into another laptop and it's fine. I have tried all ports but no luck. The light comes on the speaker top so I know that...


If your using windows 7 go to the volume control in the taskbar right click it and select playback devices then make sure the speakers are set as default by clicking the speakers and then click set as default.

JBL E250 went dead after making loud sound. Doesn't power on at all now. Bought it at Best Buy in October of 2006. Does'nt it have a 5-year warranty?


It could be a bad or bad capacitors. On the power board. Capacitors look like soda cans small soda cans. Good ones will have a flat top. Bad ones will have a biging top and sometimes fuilid sedimant leaking from them..

Laptop will not power up.


Two things to try; 1- remove the battery and start on AC only, 2- remove the memory and try one at a time. You might be able to find diagnostic light codes at Dell's support site for this machine. I'm going to say that this is a motherboard issue, and it's probably fried. Laptops and liquid don't mix well.
