AC adapter-Vaio laptop

  loquito 20:49 01 Jun 2004

On the 19/09/02 I bought a VAIO laptop with the following specifications:

Model PCG-551M (PCG-VX71P)

Last month the AC adapter stop to operate and since then I found very difficut to obtain a replacement. The AC Adapter PCGA-AC16V3, I been told, has been discontinued.

It has been impossible to telephone Sony UK because it seems to be engaged all the time. Sony Web site has not information about the laptop I bought for £1600 so I cannot use their menu. I cannot email because they do not provide an email, etc.

Is there somebody who could give me a help where to order this AC adapter or shop.

Help much appreciate it.

Is it a special connector? also the Volts and Watts from the Back of the Addapter would help

You must fone that number and then use option 1 to get through !!!!!

I phones 0207 365 2947 they told me that that part is not sold anymore by SonyStyle and that I should phone #08702402408. I have tried this phone without success for more than three days.

The price of £90 + was quoted to me by Insight Stores but they phone me one week after to tell me that that adapter has been discontinued and that I should phone Sony.

However, thank to Mike I was able to order a replacement (no Sony) adapter from Power up at £52 and just this morning I managed to start again my laptop after two months.

Than you gays for all the help.
