Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-T250P/L Notebook ?

Sudden laptop power shutdown Sony VAIO VGN-T250

\015 Computer suddenly and randomly powers off when running from either AC or battery. The problem seems to be with a faulty internal power connector, switch or failed power circuit solder connection inside, as it position dependant. With the computer held upside down, it often starts up properly and works. I have the service manual and have already taken the laptop apart to examine the boards and connectors but did not see anything that looked unusual. The internal power connector is very small and a continuity test would probably be difficult to execute. I am too cheap to have this fixed and it is way beyond warranty, so if others have repair suggestions, or ideas about what kind of tool might be helpful to diagnose this, I would be much appreciative. Thanks\015\012G79\015

Answers :

Well, your BEST option is to get it fixed. Fortunately, many places charge about 100 bucks to replace the power connection on the board, unless you know how to do that yourself. Or, you can purchase another computer just like it, and keep that one for spare parts. But, if you want my advice, call someplace and ask how much to repair the DC jack. Pick up the phone, the call is free. :)
