So, I have a Sony Vaio VGN-C240E (AKA PCG-6R3L) and I accidentally dropped it. It fell on the right rear corner where the power cord plugs in while the cord was plugged in. Of course I freaked out but it turned out the laptop was ok. A couple days later, however, I noticed that my power cord wasn't going in. It turns out the plastic pieces holding together the jack on the inside broke and the jack wasn't staying flush with the case any more.
With the help of various other tutorials on similar laptops, I was able to disassemble my Vaio with relative ease and fix the problem. I will go over these instructions in hopes that this maybe useful to someone else in the future. Opening up a Vaio is kind of an intricate process. With a laptop, you never want to tug and pull too hard as pieces are generally very small and hard to replace.
Most people who will need this will probably only need to know how to disassemble the laptop and not fix the power issue. However, I've added my fix for that problem just in case.
Last but not least, keep in mind, I'm not an Âexpert. These directions are not from the manufacturer and should not be considered as such. Do this at your own risk.
