  • Does your laptop fail to charge up when you have it plugged in?
  • Does it flicker and show a dim screen indicating it is running on battery?
  • Have the kids, the dog, or yourself tripped over the cord and yanked it out of the laptop?
  • Have you set your laptop down and put pressure on your power jack?
  • Is the power cable able to wiggle back and forth, or side to side after you insert it into the laptop?
  • Are there broken pieces floating around inside your computer?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above you probably have a broken dc power jack inside your laptop. It is a very common thing to have happen to any laptop including Dell, Toshiba, HP, Compaq, Gateway, and Sony.

If you sent the computer back to the manufacturer they would recommend a complete motherboard replacement often costing more than the entire laptop is worth. This is a fairly hard job if you’ve never replaced a power jack before. The entire laptop has to come apart the and the old jack taken off.  Then the new jack needs to be soldered on and the laptop reassembled. I have successfully performed 78 power jack replacements.
