How to replace dc power jack for toshiba p15


Take apart laptop and see what type of jack is on your system. There are two types. one is soldered on and the other is a module that connects to the motherboard with a wire connector.

If you have a soldered on type the you will need to de-solder it from the board then solder a new one onto the board. most ac jack issue just need to resolder it unless the jack itself is broken.

How do I change the battery on the motherboard? Toshiba p15-s420


That will require a soldering iron, and a another battery with the same numbers. It is not a user replaceable part. the unit will have to be disassembled to access the battery properly.

Hi Ferchichi,

Try looking here, theres 4 pages of drivers available for your laptop. You may not have found it before because I believe it to be an older model.
