SONY got themselves a bad name wrt. the battery issue some while back. Now they have problems with their power bricks: http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=16658

If you have a SONY, check the brick. Do you have a AC19V17? Return it.

I have a AC19V4 and an AC19V39. THe AC19V4 is dead already... I think from cable wear over 5 years and a short :(
Anyone got a spare AC19VX (ie any model) here in EU? I'll cover postage if you can donate it. I need a replacement.
