I think it is because of the loose dc jack. So
You need to get the DC Power Jack Either Repaired or replaced...this is the "female" port where your AC Power cord plugs into.. To Repair the current DC Jack...First you'll need to look closely at the Positive posts to see that they are not broken.. If visibally ok.. then you can look at the Solder Connections.. they will need to first be Desoldered.. Cleaned, then Resoldered back in place....

How do i fix a battery on a samsung tablet


The problem may be a frayed wire inside the charger cable right at the connector, or the charger jack may be worn or have a cracked solder connection. If it charges reliably with a different cable (such as a USB cable connected to the computer, it is probably the charger cable. If it has to be wiggled to get it to charge with a known good cable, then the charger jack should be replaced. This requires an expert technician; the solder connections are very small, and the circuitry requires special handling because it is easily damaged by static electricity.

My laptop won't charge. I have an acer aspire 5315 that won't charge, I had problems with the charging adapter before so I thought that was the problem and replaced it, the replacement worked for...


For a test -Remove the battery from the laptop. (leave it out) -Plug in the adapter and turn the laptop on. -Gently wiggle the adapter plugged in

If the computer powers off the solder and/or pins have broken loose from the DC jack. This is very common. Average repair bill is around $150, if your in the Denver Colorado Area I can do the repair for about $50
If it won't turn on while you wiggle the adapter and hit the power button then the adapter is bad again sadly

Kind of vague. It could be the port on your laptop where the charger plugs into. It could be bad, or could have a bad connection to the motherboard due to use or manufacturing defect. When the charger stops charging then it has to use the battery power. This morning the battery may have had a low charge causing the laptop to shut down. Did you notice the battery's power level before it shut down? If you are wiggling the end of the charger that is plugged into your laptop to get it to start charging again, then that is most likely your problem. Do not wiggle it , for it could fry your motherboard. If that is the case then that port needs to be re-soldered.

The port is lose and will not take a charge


Make sure that the cord is not broken at the connector into the computer using an ohm meter to check for continuity when you wiggle the cord. If the cord checks-out OK then the charging port in the computer most likely needs to be resoldered. This is not a home project as taking the computer apart and getting it correctly rebuilt is a difficult and tedious task. Find a local computer service company .... shouldn't cost more the about $50.

Battery Too Dead to Charge?


It might be because its an old battery. I had a phone for 3 years and everytime I took it off the charger maybe 20 minutes later it'd be down a bar or two. You should try taking it to the place you bought it and ask them.

Hope this helped

Did the battery seem to lose it's charge rapidly prior to this, this would be an indication of a battery losing it's useful life, or a problem with the charge system.

Have you tried to take the battery out, plug the computer to a wall outlet granted you have the power adapter which is the same as the charger cord I would think. If that works I would say you need a new battery. Sometimes the plug port where it connects in the computer wears, so try and wiggle the cord if you didn't get something the first time.

I would suggest taking it to a repair depot to get fixed. It sounds like something has shorted out on the motherboard. I recommend taking the hard drive out so it doesn't get damaged.

Cant charge. got new battery and got new a/c addaptor not charge


apparently this is a common problem on these models. You may need a new AC Socket - you can buy oin ebay, but you have to take the motherboard out to fit it. If you wiggle the plug gently to get it connected it may work. If its jammed up - you might try taking out the bios battery on the motherboard to reset - it worked on mine.

Leave it to charge for 2 hours just in case there isn't enough power for it to boot up properly until it has an initial charge.
