Question about E-Machines M2352 Notebook
The pin that the power supply plugs into is loose.
Does anyone know of a quick fix for this?
Normally, the positive and negative posts have been soldered nominally, and it works its way loose after a while. I've got 2 solutions, but both involve disassembly of the laptop in order to get the matoherboard out and access to the underside, where the solder joints are. You may order a new socket from Ebay if your timing is right, and it may be jut the issue described above, inadequate solder on the 2 posts.
What I found was the positive post with gaps around it. The negative was in better shape, but I resoldered both.
I had planned to remove the socket, and replace it with a 2-conductor piece of lamp cord, and an M size DC inline socket, available for $5 at Radio Shack. If the inline ever crapped out, it could be replaced, and the motherboard would not have the stresses of the adapter being plugged in, possibly at bad angles. I still have the M DC socket, if the solder job fails.

There is no quick fix other than tapping or glueing it into a position that works. This is not a permanent fix and will fail again sometime.
The laptop power connector is either loose or faulty, the laptop needs to be dismantled to access the plug to resolder it (if loose) or replaced if faulty.
