Power plug problem

I would love to sent it back to get fixed but I have broken the tamper seals trying to unscrew and disasemble. I doubt they would fix it any way, what do you think ?

At one time Averatec was offering to repair this problem for free outside of the warrenty because of the fire risk and so many reports. The warrenty is only good for a year anyway unless you got some extended one. Averatec doesn't support there products as well as other companies. Contact them and see what they say.
When I had this problem I decided to fix it myself because if you send the laptop in they automatically format your hard drive and reinstall the os. I got a power supply board on ebay for fairly cheap and installed it. If you are afraid to take things apart you might not want to try this tho.

ON ebay some people sell the jack only which also requires you to solder it. If you find a ac power board the jack is installed on it already so you wont have to solder it.

** Look at the picture mine had a reinforcing strip wrapped around it to prevent the problem from happening again.

probably when the power jack was being changed, a connector cables was mistakenly tampered with,

therefore in order to fix this, try to unscrew the laptop, check all available cable that makes a connection. once you sight the cable that was tampered with, connect it back to its normal place, screw thelaptop back together then turn it on.

DV1000 won't power up

This sounds to me like a motherboard issue, you could try going over all connections with a multimeter to see if any are broken. I would suggest to try and replace the board that ill fix it.

Back light

If there is one backlight bulb it should be in the bottom fo the screen, if 2 than 2 on the top one on the bottom. I want to point one thing though, if you break the seal around LCD screen that will defect picture quality, I if you are having issue with backlight there is the greater chance that the cable is broken in place where it folds when you close you laptop, rather than the bulb going out. So check the cable first if the cable is not the problem than change entire screen than just that bulb.

Vaio Notebook FS640W has no power even while plugged-in

I had the same problem with my Sony Z505 and my wife's Fujitsu S6210. Neither company would fix them for less than $ 250 plus postage to and from. I finally fixed them myself. Not somthing I would recommend to everybody. The Sony wasn't bad but the Fujitsu took me two days cause I had a hard time getting everything connected correctly when I reassembled it. The parts cost a measly $5 and from the design I can see why they fail. Fragile and poorly designed.

I found this video about a product that stops the problem...I ordered two, once for each of our systems. . .I haven't had any problems since I installed the Cable Retention Device.
