"electrical terminal" loose on motherboard

Hello all. my 4 year old Dell Latitude D600 has a loose electrical terminal... or at least that's what I'm calling it. I'm referring to a piece, connected to the mb, that the external power cable connects to. It is loose now and has quickly degerated to the point where the laptop cannot be turned on. I've taken the machine apart and can only see the side of the mb that the terminal is actually on - I'm not able to see the side that presumably has the soldering. Is there a fix? It seems very unfortunate to have to dump an otherwise perfectly funtional comp because of a loose terminal. Any ideas?

    Thank you very much for the help.

    can you please elaborate on: "If this is the case then soldering fly leads onto the motherboard terminals and taking them out to a jack plug salvages the laptop."



    i'm not sure this is the case, but i've soldered the terminal a bit and still having the same problems... the terminal is still shaky too. so i have to re-solder i guess...

I have seen several of this fault. It is due to badly soldered joints resulting in a 'dry' joint that eventually allows the power supply socket contacts to pull out of the motherboard. Generally the joints can be remade without any further damage/problem. Sometimes the socket has been so badly wiggled about that it breaks out of the motherboard. If this is the case then soldering fly leads onto the motherboard terminals and taking them out to a jack plug salvages the laptop.

If you have the top off the laptop then you still need to remove the system board from the lower case. Dell support supply downloadable dismantling manuals for these at the following

Power Jack Repair Advice Needed


Hi,
The repair really isn't too complicated most times. hardest part is usually removing the old one. I haven't looked up that specific model, they all are different but all the same. Some are placed on a separate small board. some are soldered to the main board. If your considering purchasing replacement board anyways, I would try and fix it and then if that doesn't work exercise your other options.
Thank you,
Lee

My latitude d600 will not start.


Is the connection on the Laptop loose? Most power connectors are soldered onto the motherboard and are notorious for becoming loose. If the connector is loose you it may be shorting out the adapter. I would have a professional look at it before plugging the adapter back into it. If you are shorting out the adapter it could present a fire hazard. Most laptop repair companies will resolder the connector for around a $100.
