Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-FS640W Notebook ?

Loose earphone jacks

\015 I always had a problem with my Fs-640, actually sony replaced it twice already back when the warranty was still good. The thing that pissed me off was that i was only late to renew it for a couple of days and they wont let me renew it.\015\012Anyway, if i want to hear something on my laptop. i have to press the earphone jacks tightly so that the sound will come out. \015\012What do i need to replace? the sound card? or can it be repaired?\015\012\015\012Thanks and More power to you all!!\015\012\015\012John\015

Dear John,



Actually replacing the Line Out connector is quite easy as it is a simple through hole component (with pins inserted to the pcb and then soldered)


Since you are out of warranty you can possibly do this yourself. If you are afraid you can take it at a repair shop but they will charge you extra money for something that costs pennies to replace.


In order to do this right you need the dissasembly manual from an owner of a Sony FS laptop. (Here you go)

Some simple tools which are described in the manual.


(Line Out definition: The point which the speakers or headphones will be connected to get sound out of the card)
\015\012\015\012
Note: The actual sound card seems to be integrated on your motherboard so replacing it is actually very expensive so dont think of it as an option. (The connector costs too little in comparison)

Also as an idea is wrong since it is a very very minor problem in comparison to the other functions it handles.

You will have to take the old one out and fit another. (If the microphone jack is the same as the line out jack minus the coloring you can even swap this for a complety free repair :) )

Please rate this solution if you found it usefull!!THANKS :)
