DC input jack broken

Hello,
The DC Input jack for my Acer Aspire 5570Z is broken, rendering the machine useless. Could you please advise which part needs to be replaced and a site where I could find the part for purchase online. The machine has been at the repair shop for over 7 months now, I need to solve this ASAP.

Regards,

Keith

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.

Unless you have very good soldering skills and knowledge of dismantling a laptop etc , take it to a repair shop and get it done. It only takes one wrong move if you attempt this yourself.

As for the replacement part you need a "DC Power Jack"

Search on ebay for your model - most shops should reduce the repair fee if you have the replacement part already

Sometimes the old jack just needs resoldering on , but it is better to completely desolder the old jack from the motherboard , then resolder on the new jack

Remember , if the laptop works in any way , or did do before it broke , i recommend taking it to a repair shop as DC jack replacements is probably the hardest laptop repair there is.

I have an Acer aspire 4551-2615 Laptop thats not charging. When the adapter is connected to the charging port, the power led does not display any signs of power. i Have tried a different power adapter but...


The chances are that the power jack on the motherboard has been separated (broken). If you are good at microsoldering you could try to repair it yourself. The safest bet is to take it to a laptop repair shop where they can replace the jack. This is a common problem due to the stress on the jack.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

The adapter doesn't seem to connect right. I was told it was inside the computer, but I'm not sure if the guy who was looking at it really knew what he was doing.


There are a few ways you can solve this, 1. Get someone to test the adapter in there laptop providing it is the same output and plug connection, 2. use a voltage meter on the charger unit or take it to a shop to be tested. If the DC socket on the laptop is broken then you can replace one for around £5 gbp

This will need to be soldered too just a few wires not too difficult if you have soldered before.
Good Luck

Acer 5570z will not boot up or turn on


It could be one of the following:
1. Bad/damaged power jack.
2. Bad motherboard.

DC Jack diagnosis:
1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

Battery not charging


two possibilities:
1. AC adapter is not working well. 2. laptop DC power jack loose or broken
most likely 2, quite common for laptop, Acer
try if you can power on your laptop only with the AC adapter without the battery;
also keep monitor the indicators on your front panel, see if the AC input is on.

My ACER 5570z will not start up. When power cord


You most likely have a broken DC Jack on the motherboard. Thus, the battery cannot get a charge and the power supply is not making a connection to the system board because of the broken DC Jack.

Good Luck

DC power input center pin is gone


Part costs about $ 5-10 bucks.....labor to fix it ranges from $ 100 - $250. Problem is caused by jerking or tugging on the power cable too much. All laptops need a Cable Retention Device like the one in this video. . .
