Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-SZ330P/B Notebook ?

Malfunction of the left button of the touch pad

\015 I'm an owner of a VAIO VGN-SZ79GN since July 2008.\015\012I've noticed a problem with the left button of the touch pad.\015\012When I press the button I feel the "click" but nothing happens.\015\012To make the button work properly I have to press it hard enough.\015\012I think that this is a problem but I don't know if the origin of this is the software or the hardware. Could you give me any solution?\015\012Thanks in advance.\015\012Andreas\015

Answers :

I had the same problem . The micro switch needs to be replaced . All push button micro switches have a certain amount of "clicks" before they loose ability to make a good contact . Your left click switch has exceeded its life and can no longer make a clean contact without more pressure . Eventually the spring in the switch will fail thus stick permanantly.You will have to take it to an authorized Sony Service center or maybe an office machine service department might have the replacment . I fixed my own with an old mouse microswitch .Hey it's a Cheap laptop and uses cheap parts.
Good day!
From what you have told us, it sounds like a hardware problem. It's possible that something may have come loose and could be corrected by removing it from the laptop and checking it out. Also, some foreign material (spilled liquid, food crumbs, paper clip,part of a tooth pick,etc.) may have gotten down in the area and is causing the button to stick. The probable resolution is to simply replace the touch pad with a good,new or used, touch pad assembly.
Hope this information helps to get yu going.
Have an excellentday!
