Sony Vaio AC Adapter

siameseika, Nov 14, 10:01am
My ac adapter for my laptop has just started beeping and no longer works. By looking through various threads it would seem that I need to purchase another ac adapter. I have a 19.5V VGP-AC19V42 ac adapter which I can't seem to buy in NZ. My question is; can I just buy another 19.5V ac adapter for my laptop (eg. 19.5V VGP-AC19V10) or does it have to be the exact same one!

Buy any adapter with the same specs.Take the faulty one into Jaycar, DSE etc.

Cheapest place I've found is on Ebay. got a couple for about $15 or $20 each.
Before you go buying one make sure the cable isn't damaged near the plug for the computer. You can probably buy a new plug and replace it for a couple of dollars

same voltage and same or greater amp rating is what you need.AND of course the same polarity at the plug (laptop) end is VERY important.oh and a plug the same size as well lol.
