How do you repair a sennheiser sk100 jack socket


I assume you mean the mic plug/jack. Bent pins or broken connectors will require a new jack and/or plug installed and they are not easy to do. These 3.5 mm jack connectors require both a light touch during install and soldering. If you're a pro then start shopping for a replacement 3.5 mm mono jack but be warned. The jack may solder directly to the PC board....which reminds me. Look for broken connections from jack to PC board..a common failure point and resolder as needed.

Dropped toshiba PSC2EU-00U02H and brock power jack and charger


MOST power jacks are repairable, though they require an experienced person to disassemble the computer and replace the jack. Older laptops have the jack soldered to the motherboard and require a complete disassembly, while newer laptops have the power jack on a wired connector that plugs into the motherboard (MUCH easier to fix).

Here's a link to YouTube video for a Toshiba Satellite C655 (I think that's your model) that shows the entire procedure:

You can check with local computer repair services in your area, though I generally find better prices online.

If the Charger plug is broken, you can order a replacement charger online as well.

You need to get the DC Power Jack Either Repaired or replaced...this is the "female" port where your AC Power cord plugs into.. To Repair the current DC Jack...First you'll need to look closely at the Positive posts to see that they are not broken.. If visibally ok.. then you can look at the Solder Connections.. they will need to first be Desoldered.. Cleaned, then Resoldered back in place.

Hi when plug in my ac adapter into lenovo x61 the tablet will not turn on i try it on other computer and it will on what happen?


LOL, sounds like your tablet has seen it's better days. See why HP got out of the Tablet business? They are nothing but trouble.

Advent N270 netbook will not charge. Orange light comes on initially then goes off. Also when I wiggle the plug into the laptop the light flashes on and intermittently.


It sounds like either a bad connection on the motherboard or a broken wire in the adapter making intermittent connection.

1. With the power adapter disconnected, do you have a power light? This would indicate the adapter is good and the plug is questionable.

2. Check your power adapter output with a multi-meter.(be sure to wiggle the wires around) If the power fluctuates, replace the plug.

3. If the power is solid, replace the motherboard connector.

The jack end of the ac adapter (plug into the


The jack has probably been ripped loose from the circuit board by repeated use over time. The jack must be de-soldered, then epoxy glued to the circuit board. Once the glue sets, the original connections need to be replaced with short sections of wire to bridge the broken portions of printed circuit. A relatively simple repair if done carefully. Hope this helps!

MY GATEWAY LAPTOP NO LONGER RECEIVES POWER.


Motherboard or harddrive? I'm betting it's more towards the motherboard. The DC Power Jack to be more specific. This is the port where the AC adapter, (Charger), plug is plugged into.

The DC Power Jack is not much bigger, than the plug for the AC adapter that plugs into it. There are small pin leads that are on the bottom of this jack, and they go through the motherboard, and are soldered to the motherboard.

Accidental bumping of the AC adapter plug, while plugged into the DC Power Jack, can damage the jack. It can break the connections for the adapter plug, and/or can crack the solder joints for those small pin leads.

[Laptops use DC electricity. A flashlight battery, and a laptop battery, are examples of stored DC electricity. DC electricity has two poles. Positive and Negative. The DC Power Jack has two connections. Positive and Negative. {Even if the DC Power Jack has multiple holes in it]

There is also another known problem associated with DC Power Jacks. It may stem from a bad motherboard design.

More to the point, the area where the DC Power Jack mounts on the motherboard. In this design, the DC Power Jack motherboard area, is almost a separate part of the motherboard. It's shaped like a Peninsula. (Think of an island, with one side connected to the mainland)

This peninsula shape, has the tendency to crack away from the main body of the motherboard. Circuit traces are broken.

When the AC adapter plug is setting in a certain position, it presses the two broken halves of the circuit traces together, for a momentary contact. As the AC adapter plug is moved from this position, the circuit trace halves are moved apart, and there is no contact.

(No distribution of electricity from one circuit trace half, to the other circuit trace half. Think of a circuit trace as a very, thin, flat copper wire. When a circuit trace is broken, there is essentially a wire that is broken into two parts)

Solution?
See if the DC Power Jack can be repaired, (Solder joint connections re-soldered), or replaced.
If the DC Power Jack motherboard area is the aforementioned peninsula shape, it may require replacement of the motherboard.

There are very FEW, computer repair shops that have the technical expertise to replace a DC Power Jack. Easy fix is to simply replace the motherboard. (More $$$$$ too)

However, some laptops DO require replacement of the motherboard for this repair.
Bad motherboard design, for the DC Power Jack area on the motherboard.

Re-solder DC Power Jack solder joints? (IF, this is the problem) Average is $50 to $75 (US)
Replace DC Power Jack? Average is $125 to $150. (US)
Replace motherboard? Depends on the Gateway model. Could be $225 to $400 (US)

[Yes, most of the time the cost warrants just replacing the laptop itself, as the cost of replacing, is close to the repair cost)

Just to SHOW you ab average DC Power Jack, and the repair involved of replacing. (Doesn't show you, that the entire laptop needs to be disassembled, down to the bare motherboard in hand)

This is NOT a recommendation to replace the DC Power Jack yourself! It is just for knowledge of what is partially involved. (You can accidentally burn the motherboard when desoldering, or soldering, rendering the motherboard useless)

The dc power plug is broken


Yes.
Is the connector on the power adapter that plugs into the laptop?
If so, this is an easy repair, purchase a new connector from electronics parts shop, cut off the old connector and solder the new one on the end of the cable. MAKE SURE YOU SOLDER THE CONNECTIONS TO GIVE THE CORRECT POLARITY ON THE CONNECTOR, OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE LAPTOP.

If the power socket on the laptop is faulty, this repair is more difficult. The socket may only need resoldering on the motherboard or in the worst case a new socket replacement. Either way the laptop need to be dismantled to get at the power socket.

If you don't feel you can handle this, get it done by a computer repair shop or a techo friend.

DC input jack broken


Yes it's not usually something that can be repaired at home. Your chances are better if the jack just seems loose and not actually broken, however replacing it is better. I work for a Laptop Repair Shop in NYC and we deal with this issue frequently.

Power Connection


The solution is to repair/replace the power pin assembly. Available on the web for $ 10-$20. Should only take you a couple of hours to disassemble, repair and reassemble the laptop. In the meantime you can get one of these to help hold the plug in the "right" position. Every laptop should come with one.
