Sony :: How Is The SR Keyboard

Nov 20, 2009

I think I'm going to be buying the Sony SR 590. One thing about it that slightly upsets me is that it has no separate keyboard keys for Home, End, Page Up/Down. I'm a student and do a lot of writing, and I always use the Home/End buttons, as they're very convenient. I see that on the SR, I would have to use theim with the function key and the arrows. I've never done that before but I guess I'll get used to it. I was wondering if anybody can tell me if this is going to be uncomfortable or if its all in my head.

Sony :: Where Can I Buy A Vaio JS Keyboard?

Jan 30, 2009

I'm using a Vaio Z, which is docked when at my desk into a 24" monitor and separate keyboard and mouse.

Which is great, but I miss the Z's keyboard, which is just fantastic.

Then I saw the Vaio JS in a store, and it has a wonderful scrabble style keyboard, similar to the Z.

Just a simple USB keybaord, but very nice indeed, even has an S1 button.

Sony :: BZ Series Keyboard

Nov 12, 2009

I have been lurking the forums for a bit and finally decided to register. If there's a place that can answer my questions I'm quite certain it's here.

I am looking at getting a Sony BZ series here in the USA. I can't help but notice most of the pictures of the computer have a weird looking keyboard with two extra keys next to the enter key

Sony :: Keyboard Protector For VPC-Z

May 4, 2010

where I can find a "TPU" keyboard protector for the Sony Vaio VPC-Z (EU model?). The only one I can find is on eBay but it's only for US models (different enter button) so won't fit... I know this keyboard is really going to become shiny quick because it really holds onto oil badly. It's a lovely keyboard to use, but it really picks up oil a lot more than my older Z21.

Sony :: Vaio Keyboard

May 19, 2009

i have a sony vaio vgn-fs315E. I brought it as spares or repairs. i got a xp home disk to install a new operating system.

When i put the disk in and start up the comp everything goes fine untill it says "press any key to install from disk" or whatever it says. So i press any key but nothing happens. I tried like every key on the keyboard but it just dont want to register that i have pressed a key.

Do you think this is a keyboard problem or something more serious?

Sony :: 'mushy' Z Keyboard

Apr 11, 2010

I have to an extent with both the Z9 and X9 at the moment - although probably more with the X - but there's sometimes a sort of sticky 'clicking' when the keys are depressed which leads me to believe that some of the domes are not seated correctly. I have no idea how the domes are arranged for the Z11 - I'm presuming due to weight reasons it won't be a monolithic sheet, but a separate dome per key - but it is definitely happening on more than one key. Rapid typing doesn't seem to be an issue, but the audible feedback causes me to slow down typing.

I'm weighing up the pros and cons of returning the machines for replacements.

Sony :: VGN NW240F Keyboard & Touchpad

Dec 27, 2009

All of a sudden, my keyboard and touchpad stopped working under windows7

It's on Windows 7 - POST, BIOS and other out-of-windows screens are ok. Also WEB-button pre-Windows browser responds to keyboard keys properly.

Function/DISPLAY OFF keys are not working either - however, if I close the lid (W7 goes to sleep), then wake it up afterwards, function keys work fine (brightness, volume etc.) - sadly, still, the keyboard input does not.

Already tried:
- system restore
- vaio care recovery
- complete, clean reinstall of the W7 Ultimate
- removing keyboard/touchpad drivers, reinstalling, updating them

Sony :: Can I Control The Keyboard Backlight On New Z

May 19, 2010

the keyboard backlight goes off after about 30 seconds of non-use of the keys. The trackpad movement doesn't keep it lit.

i can re-light by touching any key, but this presents two issues:

1.) the first keystroke is entered. (i guess i can use the shift key)

2.) more important, the screen brightness seems to react to ambient light, so the keyboard's light ends up making the screen pulsate.

I couldn't find a specific reference, although hard to believe. But then again, the humongous threads are hard to search effectively.

Sony :: How Can I Replace The Keyboard Of My Vaio Z11

Apr 15, 2010

My Vaio Z11 laptop came with a German keyboard layout (QWERTZ), as I purchased it from Austria. I'm using English as the input language and I sometimes have trouble remembering where some punctuation marks are.

Can I replace the keyboard? If yes, how doable is that by me? If so, how? Where can I buy the replacement English Q keyboard? (Actually, where can I find spare parts for Vaio Z series?)

Sony :: Vaio F Backlit Keyboard

Apr 1, 2010

I have just bought a Vaio VPCF117HG (top of the line) here in Singapore and the advertising said it had a backlit keyboard.

I get it home and discover to my horror there is no backlit keyboard. This is on certain overseas models only. I would not have purchased this if I knew.

So, my next question is would it be possible to source one and replace the current one on my computer. There's the question of powering it and connecting it to the light sensor that would switch it on and off.

This is really for a tech but surely there would be someone out there who would know whether this is possible or not.

Recently I have upgraded to Win7Pro x64 EN on my Z90US, everything work like a charm except for the keyboard.

I got Japanese keyboard and even though I have installed the Japanese keyboard and IME in Win7, the layout doesn't match.

The Japanese specific keys don't work (e.g. kanji switch) and also the Shift+key is different. E.g. when I want to write &, than ^ comes out.
