    Hi,

    I have a power switch malfunctioning problem with my CF-W8, which started about two years ago. I have it fixed by Panasonic about a year ago when the CF-W8 was still under warranty. According to the report, Panasonic said they repaired the motherboard to get it fixed. Only after about 1 or 2 month after the fix, the same malfunctioning started, meaning I need to start to push the power switch multiple times to get a start. At first, it was just 2 or 3 pushes, then it increased over time. Recently, the problem becomes unbearable -- sometimes I need to keep switching for 10 or 20 minutes. Yesterday was the worst experience (so far) -- it takes me more than a hour of switching.

    Has anybody experienced same problem? Does anybody know what the problem really is? the CF-W8 is out of warranty now, how much will it cost to fix? Thanks

    Welcome to the Panasonic Toughbook Forum

    I just moved your post here from the BST Forum. I don't own a CF-W8 and I don't remember anyone having the same problem as yours but someone might be able to help you out...check back later.

    just a suggestion ...
    you might write down the sequence of events , including the original problem and the paperwork numbers that you received when you sent it in for warranty repair .
    to my notion , the repair was not done correctly or another component associated with the circuit has gone south ...
    in any event , panasonic should still make good on another repair .

    i have been warranty repair for several manufacturers and have put out many "fires" created (aka : disgruntled consumers) by warranty work performed that did not correct the problem or the unit failed in a short period of time .
    you may want to call "consumer affairs" for panasonic and explain the situation , this may produce faster results .
