- Sony Vaio Laptop Display Issue
February 15, 2005, 9:00 am
rate this thread
and 1 month back :-(.
My laptop has suddenly started giving this problem. After 4-10 seconds
of opening the laptop the screen starts to flicker and goes (nearly)
blank. When in a blank state I can see faint shodowy image of the
applications ( Alt Tab, Windows+E, etc. ).
The Sony Service centre does not support this model and they are
refusing to even look at the problem. Can somebody please help me.

Re: Sony Vaio Laptop Display Issue
"a" says backlight, Vlad says inverter. Either could be correct. My
money is on Vlad. The inverter, located often in the lower horizontal
monitor bezel between the hinges, might be failing, or the connection
could be loose.
For parts (and maybe some advice), try these people:
http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/ I have purchased from them and they
are reliable and fairly priced.
For service, try Joe at http://www.aqstech.com . He is highly regarded
for servicing Vaio laptops - reliable, rapid service, fair pricing.
