Question about Averatec 3200 Notebook

1 Answer

3200 averatec First, I thank you for offering this site. My power port has burnt out. I need to solder wires to the corect number 2 and 3 areas that are indicated on the small panel. I need to know which wire I can connect is to the strands of coaxial wires and the other to the center wire on the power cord. I don't want to use the old set up, due to the burn out problems. Radio shack had the right idea with the separate female unit that has the screw and nut hub so it stays fixed to the computer frame housing rather than a couple of solder joints that break, short out and melt.

This isn't that clear of a question but my understanding is that you want to solder wires onto the motherboard, which you will then connect to a new power jack. If this isn't right, please clarify your question. You are asking for very specific information, so please be specific with your posting.

but let's assume I'm correct in my interpretation:

HERE is a picture of the power jack and the power board. It seems that once you get the computer apart it should be obvious which is the neutral/ground and which is the hot. The center post will be the hot wire, but why don't you just replace the entire power board and then hot glue it into place? I've found that a healthy portion of hot glue will secure a power jack very well.

HERE is a walkthrough on how to replace the power jack on an Averatec, it also has instructions on replacing the power plug end.

think about it this way. the center is hot and so they keep it away from your fingers. The outer casing is neutral/ground so you can touch it without getting shocked.

I don't know what setup RadioShack has, but if you can figure out a way to secure the jack better, I'd go for it. In my experience though, hot glue has worked great and looks good as a finished product because it isn't on the outside of the case.

I recently dropped my Averatec laptop and the screen went dark. The computer still works and functions otherwise (including the sound), except for the screen being almost black. If I shine a flashlight...


The majority of LCD screens, with exception of the latest models, use a thin fluorescent tube (or tubes) to provide a back-light for the image you can still see. This is a very fragile tube(s) of small diameter and are powered via a small, narrow board that produces the high voltage needed to ionize. Either the tube(s) or the inverter for them is damaged.
If it is the tube, these are not costly but very fragile and often have soldered leads on their ends which requires some careful soldering to install them.

Averatec 3200 problem charging battery connection to adapter loose or wire inside adapter problem?


Check if the charger has voltage which is 19 volts typically. If it does the charger is good. So that means the problem is in the laptop. Many times where you plug it in gets bad solder connection or the connector inside gets worn from plugging it in and out improperly. They should be plugged in straight and carefully. Then pulled out straight as well to prevent damage.

You may have burnt a circuit on the motherboard and now it isn't letting you charge, i wouldn't use it anymore and get the motherboard replaced. ASAP

Want to replace Averatec 3200 Laptop Screen


Do you know for sure the LCD screen and not the video card is faulty?
You may find it cheaper to repair the LCD screen than replacing it.

Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

My averatec series 3200 notebook cant detect my usb device


The flash disk could be faulty, especially when it draws too much power, and this will cause the USB ports to shut down and the other USB devices won't work until the faulty device is removed.

It could be the power cable or the DC jack itself. DC jack requires a re solder to the same main board. This repair can get expensive being you must take out the whole main board. Jack itself cost about 7-15 dollars and is easy to do if your comfortable with soldering.
