i have read other peoples problems with this and letters 'wearing away'. i have the same problem and my warranty is still valid but from reading the other forums i still couldnt see what i should actually do.
can i get a new set of keys through the mail to attach?
thanks in advance for any replys.
anyone else got the same problem? this seems to be a regular occurance with these keyboards.
has anyone solved or know how to solve this problem ?
Hi daniel , ..i had the same problem as you , and i had contacted sony about it ...i still was under my warranty but im afraid they'll only give you 5 keys of your choice through mail then they will ask you to send in your laptop ...to them ..but theres no chance i could do that because i need my laptop 24/7 and they said if i did send it in it would take 5 weeks ...so i just stuck to the 5 keys they gave me
hope your problem does get sorted out
I 've just had my laptop in for repair. I live in the Isle of Man and the laptop had to go away to France for repair. It was picked up Tuesday 19th and was retuned on Thursday 21st. That was for a keyboard problem as well. I was expecting a week to 10 day wait. Very fast service!
something ..wrong with the sony advisor i was talkin to then ...i definatley remember hearing the words 4-5 weeks ...maybe the advisor was'nt sure and gave me any old answer
Hey there !.......by the way.......
ANYBODY GOT EXPERIENCE WITH FIXING KEYBOARD PROBLEMS ?
MY LEFT SHIFT-BUTTON DOESN'T DO IT ANYMORE - OR JUST SOMETIMES PRESSING EVRY HARD.............
SOMEBODY TOLD ME: BUILD OUT THE KEY-BOARD - USE CONTACT-SPRAY - CLEAN THE CONTACT................
O.K. FINE ! BUT IS THAT RISKY - OR EASY TO DO ?.............
DON'T WANT TO TURN IT IN FOR REPAIR REALLY...........................
IT'S A VAIO PCG-K215S.........................
THANKS FOR HELP EVERYBODY......................
If anyone needs the PDF of how to install the keys correctly let me know through my e-mail. I managed to get a brand new keyboard but this was after immense pressure and pointing out I had reported the wear key problem 2 months after purchase. Vaio Links policy is normal wear and tear as a result of use has to be reasonable
What Vaio you after? There's a guy on ebay selling Vaio Keyboard keys for 99p each on ebay.co.uk. They're for the VGN-A417M. Other various, full, keyboards for Vaio's are about £10 on there at the mo so it's not an expensive fix
