The is a DC jack, requires a resolder back to the mainboard. Jack cost about 10$ but are you comfortable with soldering? If not it is a little bit of an expensive repair.

Power connections were u put the power cord connected it won't charge the connection in the tablet were power cord goes in its broken can it be fix

There is a good chance it can be fixed, you would need to search for the replacement part you need and simply replace the needed part, I have a Nexus 7 1st gen and I am in need of a new charging port myself but was able to make it work by opening it up and pinch the piece back together til I get a new part. Often times the connection will be just loose and you can do that but other times the pins are warn down.

Hi i am having troubl with my power cord to where i have to wiggle it around to charge my laptop what does that mean


The problem could in one of 2 places.

1st: check the adapter on the laptop itself. This part gets very hot causing dry solder points and also the pin can become loose. Check that.

2nd: get a multimeter and check the voltage output on the end as in most cases the wire inside the cord breaks causing a loss of connection thus not powering the laptop up.

If you have to wiggle the wire when its plugged in to the laptop the best place to start is at the laptop adapter.

Good luck.

Power cord port is loose and mchine gets no power

sounds like the power connector inside the computer finally gave out. Bad news is most likely it is built onto the motherboard which means it has to be replaced. If you are no longer under warranty this might be a little expensive to fix.

I would probably take it into a repair shop and get a quote for a new motherboard for it.

My acer 4520 laptop shuts off while using it. why? cant seem to complete any task without powering it back on.


This may sound stupid, but it could be as simple as your battery being low. If the battery is charged and it is still shutting off on you, the battery may need to be replaced.

One way to verify this would be to remove the battery, and plug the computer into the AC Adapter and see if it runs properly.

If it works fine, then you know that there's a problem with the battery. If not, then it may be something more serious like a motherboard issue. If it gets to that point, I suggest you take it somewhere that it can be physically looked at.

Hope this helped :)

Hello heres my problem the power cord tip gets so hot and burns even ive replaced the battery ive replaced the cord and the tip and its stil happening help please

Seems that your notebook's power socket, where you plug the power cord, is damaged & is causing a loose connection. The loose connection causes the power socket as well as the power cord's tip to overheat & burn.

I can't actually solve this, but I have to wiggle my cord around to get it to "connect". I'm pretty sure my jack is loose, but haven't opened it up yet to check. This website looks like it has a promising solution on a similar laptop:

Compaq Presario X1000 Power Issue

Two things... put your hand on the bottom of it.... is it really hot and second any chance of trying another power cord on that ?. I believe you mentioned you tried that cord on another computer. perhaps use the other cord on yours to test it .

Power issue with my Armada M700

There is a DC jack on the inside of the motherboard, It needs a solder touch-up. Chances are good the board has been getting too hot and it cause the solder to tarnish to the point that it is not making a good bond between the board and the jack. A common problem that I fix all to often. But on the M700 I would say that a fix like that would be unrealistic as I have the best prices in town and at $150 it would make the system not worth fixing. Of course as the owner of a computer store I would take it on trade for an upgraded system but not all stores do that. Good luck.
