Asus 1025c won't get any power


did you try another power adapter? If it's not the problem of the power adapter, you might need to check again the power jack, Asus uses a very small power jack for EEE PC series, it is easy to loose on the motherboard..
If a power jack needed, check this page: http://www.lapdiy.com/asus-eeepc-eee-pc-1025c-netbook-dc-power-jack-socket-p-42259.html
wish this can help you.

Power supply blown


You can check your AC adapter by voltmetter in Dc mode, one probe touches inside the plug, other probe touches outside, it should have dc reading if the ac adapter is working.
Your plug is slightly burnt, indicating that the DC jack is broken or loose.
Most DC jack can be replaced if you know how to solder, it costs only under $5.

http://cgi.ebay.com/DC-Power-Jack-Fu...3286.m20.l1116

I believe your DC jack needed to replace and a repair guy might charge you over $150 to replace a $3 part. You should do it yourself if you have a skill to take a laptop apart.

LOL, sounds like your tablet has seen it's better days. See why HP got out of the Tablet business? They are nothing but trouble.

Broken power plugin port


The power plug in port you refer to is the DC Power Jack.

The AC adapter (Charger) converts AC electricity into DC electricity.
DC electricity has two poles. Positive, and Negative.
(Just like on a D cell flashlight battery)

The center pin of the DC Power Jack is the Positive connection.
The outer metal spring-like pieces, on the inside of the cylindrical shape surrounding the center pin, are the Negative connection.
(The pieces of spring-like metal, all connect to the Negative connection in the DC Power Jack)

Example of a replacement DC Power Jack, for the Asus Eee PC 1005HA Netbook,

[ Note*
Cannot agree with the replacement instructions they offer, at the bottom of the page.
Not everyone has access to a hot-air gun. A 25 Watt soldering iron, and Desoldering Braid, is better, and more easily accessed ]

A few articles dealing with replacement of a DC Power Jack,

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/05/27/failed-laptop-power-jack-workaround/

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter, (Charger), and Battery.
2) Observe Anti-Static Precautions. Buy, and use an ESD wrist strap.
Electro Static Discharge.

(Average cost is from $3 to $6. Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.

Broken central pin on power jack of Asus Eee PC 1015ped


I realize I'm providing a solution to an older problem, and may never hear back from the original poster.
I am providing a solution because in the event it may help someone else.

The center pin you state is part of the DC Power Jack. The jack on the laptop, that the plug from the AC adapter (Charger) plugs into.

The center pin is the Positive connection.
The outer metal pieces, on the inside of the cylindrical shape surrounding the center pin, make up the Negative connection.

http://www.lapdiy.com/asus-eeepc-eee-pc-1015ped-netbook-dc-power-jack-connector-p-581.html

Click on the two views shown of the jack to enlarge.
The view on the left, shows how the jack normally sits on the motherboard. Front faces you, and in upright position.

The view on the right shows the jack upside down, and the back faces you.
Note the 4 metal tangs which protrude up. Each has a squarish hole in it.

These tangs go through the motherboard, and are soldered to the motherboard. These tangs are Negative connections.
They connect to the metal pieces inside the cylindrical shape.

Looking at the Back of the jack, (Right view), you see a metal tang coming out of the center.
This tang is the Positive connection. It attaches straight to the Center Pin.

To replace the DC Power Jack, the Eee needs to be completely disassembled down to the motherboard in your hands.

(Observe Anti-Static Precautions. Use an ESD wrist strap. Average cost is around $3 to $6. Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
{ I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case )

The broken DC Power Jack is c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y removed from the motherboard, and after the area is prepped, the new DC Power Jack is soldered into place.

How do I check for faulty DC socket (power jack) in my asus eee pc


1) Start out by removing all power to the laptop.
Of course you probably have the AC adapter (Charger) removed, but also remove the Battery.

See if you can gently wiggle the Center Post.
Also look to see if it seems that the entire DC Power Jack is moving around.

You may have to scrutinize pretty close to see any perceptible movement.
There should be No perceptible movement at all.

This is an example of a DC Power Jack for an Asus Eee 1005HAB Notebook PC.
It may, or may not, be The DC Power Jack you will need, but is used here for an example of the DC Power Jack construction,

http://www.rolta.co.uk/new-asus-1005hab-laptop-power-jack-pin-socket-dc-connector-165mm-29396-p.asp

You can click on any of the three views shown, and have all three views enlarged.
Click to enlarge.

Looking at the view on the far left, the Front view. You will see what appear as three pins sticking up.
These are Prongs.
Shown again in the Back view, which is the middle example.

These two views show the DC Power Jack upside down, in relation to how it sits on the motherboard.
The Prongs go down through holes in copper circuit traces on the top of the motherboard, and are soldered to the motherboard on the bottom side.

A) From accidentally bumping the AC adapter's plug while inserted into the DC Power Jack, the solder joints may have cracked. This can also happen with just normal usage from plugging, and unplugging the AC adapter.

Solution for this is to re-solder the cracked solder joints.
Sounds easy, but in reality the entire laptop has to be disassembled down to the bare motherboard in your hand. No Processor on the motherboard, no Ram Memory, no nada, but the bare motherboard.

Soldering can ruin a Processor, Ram Memory, or associated hardware components still installed on the motherboard.

B) The DC Power Jack may be broken. The Black body of the DC Power Jack that you see in the examples, is made of plastic.
This entails de-soldering the Prongs of the DC Power Jack, removing it, properly cleaning the area, (area around the copper circuit trace holes in the motherboard), re-tinning the area around the circuit trace holes, then installing the new DC Power Jack, and soldering it into place.

This is a basic example of DC Power Jack replacement,

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/12/06/dc-power-jack-repair-guide/


C) The motherboard area that the DC Power Jack is soldered to, can be compared to a 'Peninsula'.
A small strip of motherboard that sticks out away from the main body of the motherboard.
This 'peninsula' can crack at the area where it meets the motherboard.
This will result in stretched broken circuit traces.

[Think of a circuit trace as being a very flat, thin, copper wire ]

If this has occurred toss the motherboard.


[ In regards to the DC Power Jack repair guide in the link above;

1. You don't need a soldering station. A soldering iron around 40 to 50 Watts with a No.2 chisel tip, and well tinned, will work just fine. Have a very damp sponge nearby to constantly clean the tip with.

2. I advise using Desoldering Braid instead of a Desoldering Tool. The braid is laid on the solder joint to be removed. The tip of the soldering iron is laid right on the braid, above the solder to be removed. The copper braid will 'soak up' the solder.
A lot handier than a Desoldering Tool IMHO.

3. Isopropyl Alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE! Do not use near the soldering iron, and use in a WELL ventilated area with NO sparks or flames present!

4. If you are rusty with your soldering/de-soldering techniques, practice awhile before attempting this procedure.

Do Not overheat the copper circuit trace area around the holes. This will burn the area, and it won't accept tinning. (Tinning: Applying a light coat of solder) If it will not accept tinning, toss the motherboard at the cat. It's junk.

Overheating can also lift the copper circuit trace right off of the motherboard.
Make SURE you make a pretty, clean, solder joint. A cold solder joint will result in you starting all over.
It's a pain in the keister to disassemble the laptop in order to repair a cold solder joint.

Make sure the soldering iron tip is clean, and well tinned before you start.
Clean the tip often by wiping it across the damp sponge ]

The center pin of your DC Power Jack may be 1.0mm in diameter, or it may be 1.65mm
Make sure you obtain THE correct DC Power Jack.
The one's that are advertised around $2 to $5 may be junk, and no where near the actual DC Power Jack you need.

This place may be the one to go to. Don't know, haven't tried them, and not advertising for them.
I do like how they want you to send a photo in, and they also ask questions BEFORE you purchase.
IMHO it seems as though they may be professionals in their area of expertise,

http://www.laptopsockets.co.uk/

If you wish to have a Service Manual I do not see any online links to give you, except for one that details how to disassemble down to the Harddrive.
From there it would be a guide to an Asus Eee PC that is fairly close IMHO.
Plus guidance from me.

Have questions mtrunner53 please post in a Comment.

Hello my laptop t41 power is not even flash but the adapter is working,am technician and i have troubleshoot allot.


I concur with what Diegotech stated.

To iterate further;

1) The DC Power Jack (DC IN), may have cracked solder joint/s on the motherboard connector, (Female), where the DC Power Jack plugs in.

Resolder

2) The DC Power Jack may be broken.
Center Pin mount, and/or body of DC Power Jack, and/or Outer Shell mount.

Replace DC Power Jack.

3) Wires from the DC Power jack plug to the female connector on the motherboard, may be bad.

Replace DC Power Jack.

Two examples, of a place to buy an IBM ThinkPad T41 DC Power Jack,

2) http://www.machinaelectronics.com/store/buypart/IBM_Thinkpad_T41/DC-P001

Past this point it's a bad DC sensor on the motherboard.

Replace motherboard.

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.
