We encounter many Sony Vaio laptop computers at PCNix because they are popular – typically dubbed high-quality machines; they provide slightly lengthy repair procedures as most of these notebooks open upside down revealing the motherboard first as opposed to keyboard first in other computers. Lately we see many DC Jack repair issues and typical fan noise issues that have been associated with the Vaio brand since early 2000′s. Repair and OEM parts are generally 10% more expensive as compared to competitors and we sometimes find it hard to locate parts. We love the challenge these systems provide and like to keep a score of what we have successfully repaired at our benches.

About the company: Sony Corporation (NYSE: SNE) is a well known Japanese multinational corporation based out of Tokyo and has been part of fortune 500 companies in 2012. Sony covers professional and consumer electronics market including personal computers, gaming consoles, cellular phones, motion picture and music. Company was founded by Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morita who derived the name from Latin word Sonus, which means smart and presentable young men. Sony entered mass computer production worldwide in 1996 starting with PCV desktop series and quickly got involved in making laptop computers. Companies brand “Vaio” was marked Visual Audio Intelligent Organizer in 2008 with now expanded use of the brand to desktops, notebooks and media centre units.
Some tips from our technicians: Vaio are beautiful computers with good build quality but they are also a little tougher to open and service. Most of these models open up from the bottom rather than the top cover as most other manufacturers. This means a task as simple as replacing a screen can become tedious because entire chasis has to be opened up to get to bezel, which holds a screen together.
Same goes for power jack replacement – because most of them will have the jack on top side of motherboard, it means the board may have to be completely removed to swap a connector that normally is a simpler task.
