Instrutions how to replace charging port aspire 6935g


Replacing a DC Power jack in any computer is no easy task. However, it can be done by any novice. First, get on ebay and see what jack you need. Search for you jack by entering Acer Aspire 6935g jack. Most of the new ones have the cable attached to the jack instead of the old fashion solder.

Next, Google this question and check out the YouTube videos regarding Acer DC Jack replacement. It will give you an idea as to what you need to do. You may want to take a video camera and record what steps you take when you take it apart so you can review how to put it back together. Also, get a sewing box or something so you can put the screws in a separate container for the order you removed them; ie: bottom screws; hard drive screws, DVD mount screw... etc..

You always have to start with the bottom and work your way to the top. You will have to remove the palm rest, keyboard, heat shields and any other piece of hardware to get to it.

YouTube is your friend...

Acer 5610 charging difficulty


Yes! the DC jack will probably need to be resolded, and I would recommend replacing the power adapter because it may fix your problem, I find the universal supplies don't fit as tight as the original ones. www.ebay.com is a good place to start for power supply replacement.

The dc power jack will not accept power. I have to wiggle it to get the blue light to show that the laptop is charging. My computer is the acer aspire 5920-6423. I was told it wouldn't have to soldered...


If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.

The laptop needs the motherboard removed to get access to the DC jack so it can be resoldered or replaced if it is faulty.
This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Laptop screen won't come on. Laptop battery won't charge.


Sounds like you might need a new AC-power adapter or dc-jack. Does wiggling the power plug on the computer make any difference? If the screen comes on when you wiggle the power plug,then you need a new dc-jack. If not, then maybe the AC-adapter is bad, I see a lot of replacement adapters being sold for the Aspire One.
Worst-case scenario is that you have a power problem on the motherboard,let's hope not.

I have an acer aspire one 8.9" running windows xp.


There are two wires of importance - the red and the black, positive and negative respectively. Pay attention to how the adapter plug outputs power to the jack - they should have a label that indicates whether the the inner or outer connections are positive or negative. Make sure the jack is wired accordingly to the adapters's plug - positive goes to positive and negative goes to negative. Use a voltmeter to verify the voltage and polarity of the plug.

Bumped computer on door casing..power female connection broken inside. how easy to fix???


The DC jack, where you plug the power adapter cable, might be loose or defective, & needs to be either re-soldered or replaced.
In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard taken out. Also, the motherboard needs to be checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

What is a dc jack and what is the price . For a acer net book. my home page is small how to make it large .


First thing...when you have a browser window open holding the CTRL key down and tapping the + or - keys will enlarge or shrink the font.

The dc jack is the port on the side or back of the computer that the power adapter fits into, the adapter receives AC current from the wall outlet, iy goes into the power adapter "Brick" and is converted to DC current to the correct voltage for your particular laptop. The dc jack is either a direct solder onto the motherboard (main board) inside the computer or it is connected to the main board by a cable. The direct solder piece cost a few dollars but has to be replaced professionally with the correct equipment. The cable type can be done by the home user with the right manual and dissassembly instructions. I have included a link below for the service manual of that laptop. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

copy and paste the link below in your internet browsers address bar and hit enter. Remember, if you need to make the text etc. bigger....CTRL / +

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. . .
