To be restored: Sony VAIO P

Each of us uses certain gadgets. Some people need a phone and a computer. Someone needs two phones, a player, a camera, a laptop, a computer, an e-book and a video camera. Some things serve us for years (for example, cameras), others must be replaced after a few months. Rather, it is manufacturers and marketers who have set the flags: they say that in eight months your phone will become obsolete, it's time to change it. The same - and with laptops, and with players. Played, used, it's time to send the old to the dustbin of history and buy a new one.

The approach is certainly interesting. But for me, as a well-known gadget-vintage lover, it is largely unacceptable. And for you too, I think. If you're into portable electronics, then you're sure to find non-working or semi-working devices covered in dust in your hidden locker. It's a shame to throw it away. Too lazy to repair. But after all, this very piece of plastic or iron can still serve, if not for you, then for someone from your family or friends. In the end, you can come up with something that will make you pick up your old favorite gadget again. This section did not appear out of nowhere. I personally got sick of just looking at old broken friends. It's time for them to step out of the shadows and begin to be useful again. Moreover, along the way, a powerful storehouse of information regarding the service and other things opens up. The first issue is devoted to restoring a flooded laptop, in the next we will talk about airbrushing and fixing a broken iPhone 2G, then there will be an exciting tidying up of the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition, and who knows what else will happen.

Irrigation problems

I had a lot of different laptops. In the long years of using portable computers, only two really terrible things happened to them. There was, I remember, a small such Samsung once. They were rearranging the furniture in the room, and my wife accidentally stepped on the lid. Crack on the entire display, but the laptop continued to work. Repair, that is, the replacement of the matrix, cost two hundred dollars. Then the laptop was handed over to relatives. The second time - just the same incident that served as an impetus for writing the article. A half cup of coffee with milk was spilled (through no fault of mine) on the Sony VAIO P. A solution that is detrimental to the insides of the device, sweet, sticky - it's just awful. Since I am, by and large, a Russian person, I decided to start on my own. That is, I turned the laptop over, wiped it with a napkin, then again.

I can't say that I suffered a lot. Because everything can be repaired, such confidence has matured in me. What is really here, well, it happened and it happened. Let's do it. There was important information on the disk, but that's okay, it's fixable. After some time, I just put the device in my bag and went home, intending to go to the service tomorrow.

As you know, "tomorrow" consists of morning, afternoon and evening. In the morning I thought I would go in the afternoon. During the day I decided to go in the evening. I was already too lazy in the evening, so the trip was postponed until tomorrow.

Tomorrow turned into three or four days, I don't remember. I was advised to go to a well-known service. There they took my laptop and noted that there were scratches on the case. A well-known insurance of services, so that customers, if anything, do not find fault. By the way, pay attention to this moment when you hand it over, especially when you have an almost perfect, pristine laptop. So, the laptop was transferred to the service for diagnostics. This business costs about a thousand rubles. Satisfied with myself, I went to do business.

In the evening, they called me and said that the repair would cost 29,500 rubles. Replacing the motherboard, keyboard and everything else. A new Sony VAIO P in the same configuration would cost me about the same amount. Here you are, grandmother, and "tomorrow." In fact, the service offered me to buy a new laptop and throw away the old one. Having paid for the diagnostics, I took the device and finally began to scratch my head. You know, these stupid moral torments: "It would be necessary and all that."

Now, from the height of knowledge, I can easily tell where and how I made a mistake. Remember, laptop users, this is important information. It is, in general, not new. But it's worth repeating:

  • If you spill any liquid on your laptop, remove the power supply and battery immediately. Don't be afraid to lose data. Because you can easily lose your laptop. In real life, you are unlikely to spill pure alcohol or distilled water, so we are talking about any liquid. The worst thing is spilling something sweet. But the worst option is if your pet goes to the toilet right on the keyboard. In services, they also face such cases, and the rationale is simple. If you often work at home with a laptop on your lap, then this can cause jealousy in the same cats. Cat urine has a very, very detrimental effect on the stuffing of a laptop: rapid corrosion, death and oblivion of the motherboard, expensive repairs. So, if the cat began to look askance at the laptop, put it away. I have not encountered this yet, but my animal regularly pulls out the power supply from the MacBook Pro and always gnaws USB cables to connect the iPod / iPhone. There is not a single cable at home
  • Immediately, gently turn the device over. Ideal if the model is equipped with spill protection, but there are few such portable computers on the market. We will assume that we are dealing with an ordinary laptop, and in this case it is simply necessary to turn it over
  • Use a well-absorbing miracle cloth or tissue to wipe the laptop, remove all moisture that you see
  • Never try to turn on a flooded laptop. You can't do that.
  • It is highly desirable and simply necessary to hand over the laptop to the service for diagnostics and cleaning on the same day. If the strait was in the evening, go to the good uncles in the morning, do not wait for the weather by the sea

If you perform all the listed and not at all cunning actions, everything can end with little bloodshed. But not without consequences, it is likely that after the sweet, the keyboard will no longer be the same as before. In any case, replacing the keyboard for your wallet will be less burdensome than replacing the motherboard. Even for Sony VAIO P, this component can cost ten to twelve thousand.

Further adventures

After sadness and longing, I threw a cry in the blog. Like, let's repairmen, let's do it together. The repairmen were silent for the time being, but then representatives of the ABECOM service center contacted me. With the director of the service, Matvey, we spent a lot of time over cups of coffee (we didn’t spill) and delicious food. The goal was simple - to try to fix the Sony VAIO P without resorting to an instant and simple assessment. There are tricks here too. For example, when you return a laptop and indicate the reason for the repair, the service will no longer take a steam bath. Filled, my friend, let's change everything for you. When I handed over the device for the first time, it was worth pretending to be a fool, saying that my wife used it, and something didn’t work at all. And in the service already let them find out the reason. Although, as a rule, there are no fools there either - traces of a foreign substance are visible to the naked eye. As a result, kind people from "abekoma" took away the laptop, patted on the shoulder and in the evening they reported unpleasant news. In the first service, they treated the diagnostics, after all, as expected. The motherboard was cleaned, apparently, they tried to start the laptop, but it didn’t work out. In ABECOM, the device was disassembled, looked at, but the motherboard did not work. To find out the reason, it was necessary to spend a lot of time, but where do the engineers have time ... Moreover, there is no guarantee that the device will eventually work. And the time is not official, and there is darkness around warranty equipment.

So, for some time we forgot about the Sony VAIO P. Yes, it was found out by experience that the keyboard is also a replacement. Sweet coffee turned a light clatter into such a pleasant crunch. As far as I remember, the space bar was not pressed at all.

All this is sad, and in my mind I said goodbye to the "pishka".

Luck

And the stars coincided so well that a white Sony VAIO P fell into my hands. This sample was pretty bruised at the Photoforum, either a backpack was lowered onto the lid, or something else. Such a crack on the display turned out to be excellent. At the same time, the laptop worked, turned on - only for some reason it did not boot to the end. The idea immediately arose from two cripples to collect one healthy one, which was done very, very quickly.

Such luck is very rare. So the stars coincided - one might say, in my favor. It's not just about simple everyday joy from a successfully completed business. This small laptop can sometimes be so useful that without it it is literally like without hands, and no iPads can replace it. in Uganda, 10477 ads Still, it weighs nothing, it has not only Wi-Fi, but also 3G, which is nice keyboard, positive, albeit eye-killing, display. In general, I am very pleased that everything ended like this.

But I will immediately note that the stories with the strait, for the most part, end in failure. And often this happens because of ignorance of how to act in such cases. Another reason is laziness, or our eternal “yes, I’ll do it myself now quickly.”

Filled - run to the service.

P.S. By the way, according to the representatives of the service center, Sony VAIO P is very competently assembled. Not a single millimeter of space is wasted. It's pretty easy to take apart if you know a few tricks. And yet, as I was told, there is nothing to break at all - it is clear that marriage is always possible, but a simple “transfer” of elements from one laptop to another was simple and painless. The only thing I had to sacrifice was the processor and flash memory - all this remained in the old "offal", because white Sony VAIO P are found exclusively in lower configurations (applies only to Russia, as far as I know).

Tomorrow turned into three or four days, I don't remember. I was advised to go to a well-known service. There they took my laptop and noted that there were scratches on the case. A well-known insurance of services, so that customers, if anything, do not find fault. By the way, pay attention to this moment when you hand it over, especially when you have an almost perfect, pristine laptop. So, the laptop was transferred to the service for diagnostics. This business costs about a thousand rubles. Satisfied with myself, I went to do business.

In the evening, they called me and said that the repair would cost 29,500 rubles. Replacing the motherboard, keyboard and everything else. A new Sony VAIO P in the same configuration would cost me about the same amount. Here you are, grandmother, and "tomorrow." In fact, the service offered me to buy a new laptop and throw away the old one. Having paid for the diagnostics, I took the device and finally began to scratch my head. You know, these stupid moral torments: "It would be necessary and all that."

If all the listed and not at all cunning actions are performed, everything can end with little bloodshed. But not without consequences, it is likely that after the sweet, the keyboard will no longer be the same as before. In any case, replacing the keyboard for your wallet will be less burdensome than replacing the motherboard. Even for Sony VAIO P, this component can cost ten to twelve thousand.

Further adventures

After sadness and longing, I threw a cry in the blog. Like, let's repairmen, let's do it together. The repairmen were silent for the time being, but then representatives of the ABECOM service center contacted me. With the director of the service, Matvey, we spent a lot of time over cups of coffee (we didn’t spill) and delicious food. The goal was simple - to try to fix the Sony VAIO P without resorting to an instant and simple assessment. There are tricks here too. For example, when you hand over a laptop and indicate the reason for the repair, the service will no longer take a steam bath. Filled, my friend, let's change everything for you. When I handed over the device for the first time, it was worth pretending to be a fool, saying that my wife used it, and something didn’t work at all. And in the service already let them find out the reason. Although, as a rule, there are no fools there either - traces of a foreign substance are visible to the naked eye. As a result, kind people from "abekoma" took away the laptop, patted on the shoulder and in the evening they reported unpleasant news. In the first service, they treated the diagnostics, after all, as expected. The motherboard was cleaned, apparently, they tried to start the laptop, but it didn’t work out. In ABECOM, the device was disassembled, looked at, but the motherboard did not work. To find out the reason, it was necessary to spend a lot of time, but where do the engineers have time ... Moreover, there is no guarantee that the device will eventually work. And the time is not official, and there is darkness around warranty equipment.

So, for some time we forgot about the Sony VAIO P. Yes, it was found out by experience that the keyboard is also a replacement. Sweet coffee turned a light clatter into such a pleasant crunch. As far as I remember, the space bar was not pressed at all.

All this is sad, and in my mind I said goodbye to the "pishka".

Luck

And the stars coincided so well that a white Sony VAIO P fell into my hands. This sample was pretty bruised at the Photoforum, either a backpack was lowered onto the lid, or something else. Such a crack on the display turned out to be excellent. At the same time, the laptop worked, turned on - only for some reason it did not boot to the end. The idea immediately arose from two cripples to collect one healthy one, which was done very, very quickly.

Such luck is very rare. So the stars coincided - one might say, in my favor. It's not just about simple everyday joy from a successfully completed business. This small laptop can sometimes be so useful that without it it is literally like without hands, and no iPads can replace it. in Uganda, 10477 ads After all, it weighs nothing, it has not only Wi-Fi, but also 3G, a nice keyboard, a positive, albeit eye-killing, display. In general, I am very pleased that it ended like this.

All in all, I'm very happy with how it ended.

But I will immediately note that the stories with the strait, for the most part, end in failure. And often this happens because of ignorance of how to act in such cases. Another reason is laziness, or our eternal “yes, I’ll do it myself now quickly.”

Filled - run to the service.

P.S. By the way, according to the representatives of the service center, Sony VAIO P is very competently assembled. Not a single millimeter of space is wasted. It's pretty easy to take apart if you know a few tricks. And yet, as I was told, there is nothing to break at all - it is clear that marriage is always possible, but a simple “transfer” of elements from one laptop to another was simple and painless. The only thing I had to sacrifice was the processor and flash memory - all this remained in the old "offal", because white Sony VAIO P are found exclusively in lower configurations (applies only to Russia, as far as I know).
