Question about Sony VAIO PCV-W10 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Hello in this New Year. I have a Sony Vaio desktop model PCV-RS 420. Suddenly now when I try to start the computer the only message that appears on the screen is Power saving mode and that's it. The computer will not start from there. I have tried the Wake and Power buttons on the key board and pretty much everything else with no positive results. Also I have tried a brand new battery on the motherboard but nothing has changed. Can you please give me a hint.

Sounds like a power supply issue in the computer section.

SOURCE: Cannot start Sony VAIO PCG-5J2L /Goes to black screen only

During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.

If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.

If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".

SOURCE: Replacing the powersupply on a Sony VAIO PCV-RS720G desktop

Hi There,

From the looks of things that model will take a standard ATX power supply which would be available from and computer part dealer and ebay etc, get yourself a nice 400w replacement try and get a small form factor one if you can as it will be a tight sqeeze inside the case.

when replacing it you will have to open the case up (get an anti static wristband if you can, and work on a table rather that a carpeted floor) un hook all the connectors the old power supply (one in each drive and there should be 2 in the motherboard) you may have to pull the Dvd rom out slightly to get the new supply in, unscrew the 4 case screws holding the power supply from the back of the case. lift it out then put in the new one, screw it in using the case screws and connect up the internal power cables to the drives motherboard and new graphics card, close the case, plug in and voila

If you get stuck just ask and we will help

SOURCE: sony vaio pcv w20

I have a PCV-W20 and I had the issues with the flickering screen and blackouts. After reading a few postings i discovered the issue was a faulty CCFL. There are two in this unit. I did not know that when I ordered just one. When it arrived I had already taken the unit apart and was ready to replace the lamp. After soldering the connections the figuring out how to put the unit back together, it worked! After replacing the CCFL lamp the unit does not experience blackouts.

Like I mentioned this unit has two CCFL lamps. When I pulled it out I noticed one was a little darker than the other. I figured this was the one that was bad, and luckily it was.

I do have a line running across the screen now which I have not been able to figure out. Maybe it has something to do with the light escaping from the side. I'm not sure.
