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.

Acer 6530 has problem with power connector on the laptop, the cord and power supply work fine. the connector is loose and is not working, how do i replce it?


It's called a the DC Jack, and you would have to take the laptop completely apart so you can get to the motherboard then De solder the old jack from the motherboard then solder the new jack on the motherboard. Finally you will have to re-assemble the laptop. If you are not comfortable doing this than I suggest you take it to a local repair shop for repairs.

The power supply cord is very loose and loses connection


Hello kathywadman:
If this is for a laptop it is probably not the cord but the power jack that it plugs into. But I have had a cord go bad at the point that it connects to the plug. Look on the internet and you might find a tutorial on how to fix your DC jack on your laptop. And EBay is your friend when you need to buy the jack.

If this helps don't forget to give the OLE thumbs up a click.

I have a emachine m2350, I search visual instruction for the replacement of the DC Power Jack . (Part Number: EM51225) And where i Can bye this part in Canada or in US, but the shipping shuld be ground...


This is an auction for that power jack and it has free shipping which is located by clicking here.

The jack would be shipped from California. This particular guy has plenty of them so the cost would be just $6.99. I found this just by doing a search thru Ebay's website.

How do you replace the power jack socket?


Hi there,

I'm a laptop repair specialist. The DC Power Jack is soldered to the motherboard. While I am able to do this repair I no longer take the trouble because there are many vendors on eBay who perform the service for half, or less than half, of what I'd have to charge a customer.

Go to eBay and in the search window type in "Laptop DC Power Jack Repair". You will be re-directed to a page with many choices of vendors where you simply send them the laptop and they return it repaired. You should expect to pay between about $85 to $125 including all shipping.

Take care,

TheSelkie

Gateway MX8738 Laptop won't power on. The power adapter is putting out the correct voltage, but the computer is dead - no sign of life. This happened once before - repaired under warranty. This time I'm on...


Sounds like your power jack may be faulty or bad connection to motherboard unfortunately. The only way to truly find out is by disassembling the laptop. You'll have to do this at your own risk of course, and test the terminals at the power jack to see if you are getting power through them, if you are, then the trouble is deeper in the motherboard. If you are not, then here is a good article on how to fix the power jack:

Good luck.

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)
