Having problems with your Sony VAIO PCG-K25 Notebook ?
Screen is pink, looks strange. Problem was intermittant.
\015 A gentle rap on the back of the screen put it back to normal.Now it seems permanent. Loose ribbon cable connection?\015
It could be as simple as the connector for the ribbon is loose, but it could also be a bad connection on either end where the connectors are mounted. The last possibility I have seen is the ribbon it self can develop a crack inside and needs replacement. Since it responded to a tap these would be the usual suspects. I have worked on laptops and if you decide to try a repair your self - A. download the service guide, B - Take your time with notes and organization of the screw removal to make sure you can retrace your assembly when complete. And lastly some components snap apart and back together it takes more pressure then feels right but if the manual says it snaps on and off take a breath and go fro it. Good Luck.

Pink screen I've got my screen for about two years and I've never really had a lot of problems up until now. One day, i turn on my screen, and it is bright pink.

The strange thing is, when i press the auto button, or when i reset my monitor, for a moment, i get the right colors, but then it switches back to pink. Can anybody he

I bought my Philips Flat Screen TV Model No: 23PF9945/12 about 6 years ago. For the past 2-3 years, it's been switching itself off intermittently - sometimes 3-4 times a night! It's been in and out of the retailer from which I bought it several times, with no solution. I've just been putting up with it! Each time it happens, the screen goes black and there are no LED lights on - I have to switch it off at the wall plug, then on again - usually, it stays on for a couple of minutes and then goes o

Hi. My computer is having a problem loading. Apparently, I went to work and then my wife decided that instead of turning it off the correct way just turned it off by hitting the power switch. Now when i try to turn it back on to reload, it powerrs up but the screen is black. Also I am not sure if there is a problem with the motor of my fan, because it is making a weird zzzzzzz noise. The fan is turning so the motor is working. As for the screen, I have held down the power button for 10 to 15 sec
