Sony Vaio left click works if press hard - how to fix

Sony Vaio VGN FW41E

If I click on the very far left of the button it works every time. Any where else it doesn't.

Any point to disassemble and try readjust ?

It is probably part of the keyboard or the palm rest (if there is one). Just replace the part that contains the touch pad and buttons. That is what I would do. Those parts are not repairable to the best of my knowledge.

See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWzWCTD16nE

This is an advertorial but go to their site http://www.laptopkey.com/installation_guides.php and you should be able to find guides on how to take your keyboard apart and they also supply replacement keys.  You may find after removing the keycap if you spray lubricant into the key it may fix the problem.

I agree, this appears to be a hardware wearing out. The left button on the touchpad is used the most and wears out first. It's normally integrated into most keyboards but you should check the hardware manual or just open up the unit and check it. You might be able to just replace the touchpad and resolve the issue.

Hi,

Please see pic attached.
Chances that I dont need a part and and adjustment will do the job? Out of 10?

By the look of it is it a full KB part or something cheaper?
 
Thanks.

It looks like it's part of the keyboard but impossible to definitely say. You need to remove the keyboard & touchpad to verify.

Hmm.  Apologies, I've misinterpreted the question.  You are talking about the touchpad rather than the keyboard.

You'd need to dismantle as already suggested and inspect the component.

Touchpads are general not repairable or adjustable. They work, or they don't work. So in your case, replacement is probably in order.
