I need to know how to install a laptop hinge on a sony vaio a690? Is it required that I remove the lcd when I attempt to install the hinge?


As the hinge is what binds the display assembly to the laptop itself, you will need to remove the display assembly in order to replace the hinge. However, if you are only replacing the hinge cover, then you don't have to remove the display assembly.

My lcd is really bright then all these black blocks coming from the right going to the left no pictures, laptop works with a external ok. What am I looking for?


Hi,

Please restart the computer and press the F2 key to access the BIOS setup. If the issue persist in the BIOS also then the issue is with the LCD screen, in that case service will be required to replace the LCD screen. You may either contact Sony Service Center at:

https://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/index.do

Or you may also contact your favorite hardware vendor.

Based on the information, it seems that those are dead pixels and a LCD replacement will required.

The following are the Display part numbers:

A1062138A- Sharp Display Model# LQ170M1LA04
A8119991A - LCD Harness
468257801 - LCD Hinge (L)
468257701 - LCD Hinge (R)
468238001 - LCD Hinge Cover
147862922 - LCD Inverter

Thanks!!!!

Need service manual or instructions on replacing hard drive on a Sony Viao VGN-ns135e or Sony VGN-NS100 Series Laptop


The hard drive is inside of the laptop and not accessible from the outside. The way to get to the hard drive is to take out all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, take the keyboard out and there may be some screws there that need to be removed. The dvd drive needs to come out and where the dvd drive normally is, check for screws there.

At this point you can remove the top cover assembly and you will see the hard drive. Remove the screws that are holding the hard drive in place and then it will come out.
