Hi there
the power jack is soldered to the motherboard which has to be removed to fit a new jack.
this involves a lot of time and you have to rember where all the screws came from as they are all different. one screw in the wrong hole can crack the motherboard ! it is not a job you should undertake unless you know what you are doing. my advice is get a pro to do it as its too risky unless the laptop is really old and not worth much. if you do get it repaired make sure everything is backed up first as the hard drive getting wiped is quite a common event.
good luck

Gateway kav60 not charging. i have to wiggle the cord and sometimes it refuses to charge.


I guess you've got a broken laptop power dc jack or power cable.


Symptoms of a broken Laptop DC power jack:


- The laptop only operates when you hold the DC power plug in a certain direction (DC jack is broken or loose).
- The laptop only runs on battery power (no power is getting through the DC jack).
- The laptop gets no power at all.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently due to a loose or broken power jack.
- The laptop suddenly shuts off.
- The DC jack may feel loose.
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop when you insert the power plug into the DC jack.

I changed my powerboard due to a broken dc jack. now pc wont star


This could be several things...

If you weren't EXTREMELY careful to reinstall each screw in the hole it came out of, you may have put a longer screw in a hole it shouldn't have gone in. This can make a shorted circuit and keep the laptop from powering up. It can also cause damage.

open it up again, and carefully inspect where any of the screw ends may have touched ANYTHING. Also, make sure the connectors are all seated properly.

Ineed to access the power jack? How do i get


go to hp.com you can download manuals and drivers for your specific laptop,

on a side note, It has been my experiance that the power jacks are soldered on the mainboard and then thinly coated with glue so they hold position, keep that in mind because with yours being loose the odds are that the glue around your power jack is broken, so when you pull the jack out from the plastic case be careful not to break the solder connection on the mainboard

Power jack loose on mother board advent 5303


Hello,

If the jack is just broken loose then you should be able to disassemble the laptop and resolder the jack back onto the motherboard. If the jack is broken then you will need to get a replacement jack and change it out. You can get power jacks from several places on the internet including Ebay.com If you don't want to try the repair yourself we have a repair service and can do it for you. We charge $55 + return shipping. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

One of the 3 Male Jack Prongs is broken off.


This will likely require some soldering, if you are referring to the jack on the dc converter (black box) you should exercise care when opening these there coiuld be hazardous electricity in it even if unplugged. (if it can be opened, many are permanantly glued shut) you can order replacements on ebay relatively cheap, usually $15-30.

How can I fix the loose power jack?


The last 2 screws to separate top from bottom are located ynder the 3/8" wide clip on plastic piece above your function buttons. Center screw and right hand side. Be careful of ribbons, plug-ins and wires that attach to both sides. I strongley suggest not doing this if you are not mechanically inclined. You could very easily cause damage to your laptop.
