My Sony Vaio VPCSA23GX (S Series) will only startup on AC power. When the battery is in it will not turn on, with or without the AC plugged in. I have tried a new battery and am experiencing the same issue. I have also tried a factory reset so it must be the hardware. Any recommendations?
It is not under warranty and I would like to resolve the issue myself.
Remove the cover when you removed for replacing battery.
Pull the battery out with unlock nob.
place about 1mm x 10mm x 50mm size of soft piece on the other side where you don't have electrical contact.
Put the battery back in.
This problem seems caused by too much room for battery.
