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

My acer laptop wont turn in it just acts like there is no batterry in it and no power cord plugged in


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

For laptops, remove the heatsink and apply new thermal paste or the motherboard may need replacing. Leave it to an expert if you are not familiar.

Hope this helps.

Laptop wont come on


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced

How do you change the d.c. Power jack on a toshiba L300D ?


where's this power jack located? in the laptop or in the power adapter? if from power adapter it is very easy. just buy a power jack that is the same with the defective. cut the defective part and solder the new one. if its from the laptop. you have to open the unit. then do the same process. but this time you will not cut the defective jack. you will use a soldering iron, soldering pump to remove the lead. after that install the new one. of course you will need some lead and soldering iron to do that. good luck.

Acer 9100 dc jack broken


search ebay for a DC Jack for your model. Disassemble your laptop. Desolder the broken DC Jack from the laptop motherboard. Solder the new DC jack onto the motherboard and reassemble laptop. If your not experienced in soldering of disassembling laptops I would recommend you hire someone to do this job. If you wish contact me jason@jrdtech.net
