Short circuit at the connector
on 23 December 2014
The adapter got delivered promptly. For past one and half months it worked great. Yesterday, I found that the connector lead that goes into the laptop was hot and there was burning smell. I immediately removed the connector from laptop's power input socket.
Even after disconnecting from the laptop, the light on adapter was blinking. I tried to switch it off and on again, but couldn't get the adapter to work again as normal. I did not have energy and time to deal with the vendor as the Christmas is approaching. So, I cut the lead from the adapter and replaced it with the lead of my old adapter (that had given up earlier). It made the adapter working as normal again.
It appears to be a short circuit in the connector lead. Considering the money paid for this adapter (which is supposedly GENIUNE SONY), I am very disappointed.
I'm happy that I can use my laptop again, but I'm still worried whether this adapter will fail me again when I expect the least. I would not recommend this product/vendor to anyone.
