Question about Acer 15.6-inch Aspire 5735-4774 Laptop LCD Screen Panel
The power jack is not working so i need to replace it, but im unsure of how to go about opening the computer and what to do to replace it or fix it
Have you tried another charger? That is a better solution than opening up your computer. If you have tried that then it is safer to get it repaired because you could electrocute yourself or create a short circuit and start a fire!

You may be able to buy the whole assembly on Ebay. I bought one for my averatec laptop and it just popped into place, no soldering. It was about $20

Hi I will help you. Under the screen and above the keyboard is the power button panel. take a small flat tip screwdriver and carefully use it to pry up one side of the power button panel. you may even need to pry up on the part of the panel that covers the hinges. Once it start to release, grab the panel and kind of wigggle it back and forth, while lifting it. it should start to release all the way. Once removed, the top of the keyboard is exposed, remove the keyboard being careful of the short ribbon cable connector underneath the keyboard.
once keyboard and panel are removed, you'll need to remove the screen via the screws on the hinges. make sure to disconnect ANY of the cables to the screen (usually video cable and wireless cables. And disconnect one small ribbon cable that looks like it comes from the touchpad mouse.
Now check where you removed the keyboard, you should see several sscrews that you need to remove.
At this point, if all the screws are removed, you should be able to disassemble thelower chassis of the laptop. Be very careful not to break anything. You will need to also remove several screws in order to get the motherboard out of the laptop.
I will give you the web link of where I buy ALL my power jacks for my repair shop. A guy named Gary Shaftsall runs DC PowerJacks, and is a great guy to do business with, not to mention he sells the jacks @ wholesale price.
His website address is:
I urge you to be soooo careful in putting it all back to gether, I would hate to see you put a long screw into a shallow hole. this could result in a MAJOR short of the motherboard. Just keep track where all screws go and how the parts go together.
Hope this helps, please rate my solution.
