Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
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?
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
