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.

My HP laptop will not turn of even when plugged in


Here below are possible causes and troubleshooting steps of laptop that can't power on, hope it may help:
Possible causes:

1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solutions:
1. Test the AC adapter with a digital multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.

2.It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one. Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.

3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

Power supply blown


You can check your AC adapter by voltmetter in Dc mode, one probe touches inside the plug, other probe touches outside, it should have dc reading if the ac adapter is working.
Your plug is slightly burnt, indicating that the DC jack is broken or loose.
Most DC jack can be replaced if you know how to solder, it costs only under $5.

I believe your DC jack needed to replace and a repair guy might charge you over $150 to replace a $3 part. You should do it yourself if you have a skill to take a laptop apart.

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.

I bought new universal adapter for asus laptop and it charges batery just when laptop is turned off


Problem description: The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause: 1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: 1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.
2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.
3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.
4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

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.

My issue is the following i have a gateway laptop and the charger when plugged in doesnt seem to power the laptop with the battery in or out


Is there a green LED light on the large box part of the charger? If there is, is it lit up green when plugged into the wall? If it isn't, then the charger is bad. If it is lit up green, and it isn't charging your laptop when it is plugged into it, then most likely the DC Jack that you are plugging into is broken. It is most likely the kind of jack that has 3 metal pins/posts that come out of the bottom of it and are soldered to the motherboard. Usually one of the pins gets broken so then there is no connection for electricity to follow into the laptop. It usually can be repaired at a computer store or electronics repair shop for around $200 or less.

Toshiba L300 satellite --- Power cord does not connect!


There are several companies online, or you can find someone in your area, the "AC Power Jack" that you plug into, is soldered onto the Motherboard using 2-4 "Prongs", one or more of yours has "Broken", and isn't making a connection, while the Price of the part is cheap, the repair is "Difficult" if you are trained to do the repair, but I have done 6 or 7 myself, so it is possible, But damage to the Motherboard can occur when soldering the new jack in,"Burning" a contact or something, best to take it to a repair shop,$150-$175, or $5-15 if you can do it yourself, Again "DIFFICULT", so the repair shop is your best bet, the online companies have Guaranties against damage. Google "Laptop DC jack repair"
http://www.DCJackRepair.NET is in the sponsered results. There are self help pages for the repair,

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.
