I've never worked on this brand, but almost all laptops have the power jack soldered right to the system board. Flexing the power connector can break the solder connections and cause the problems you describe. If there hasn't been any damage to the system board, these connections can be resoldered. Getting to them can be a challenge as it means removing the system board to get at the solder side. But if you have soldering experience, patience, a small screwdriver, and some attention to detail, you can fix this.

The only trouble that may pop up is that sometimes electrical arcing occurs where the connections break, and may burn the circuit board. Sometimes the area can be cleaned and successfully repaired, sometimes it's too far gone. But it never hurts to try the repair. Good luck!

HP Mini 2140 "Plugged in, charging" but not charging

Hello jorel, most likely its a failure of the system board particularly the charging section, a broken pin or a loose terminal. work will be internal, suggest you do away with the battery. its better to operate it at home, or bring the charger with you. Maybe its time to get a new one.

Firstly, you don't need to use capslock, it just feels like you're being shouted at ;)
Try rotating the sharget in the port, it may just be that it has a loose contact. If the port is broken to the extent that this doesn't work, then I'm afraid I don't think its not going to be simple to fix (if at all). I can't really help more than that from here, your best bet is to take it along to a computer dealer and let them have a look at it, they will be able to give you a definite answer as to whether it can be fixed at all.
Sorry I can't be more helpful.

While reading my novel the screen went white, i have tried holding the power button and the volume button but no message appears,i have tried charging it but i dont get a red or green light

When you restart, do you continue to have a white screen? If you do, it is probably the video inverter. Usually an inexpensive ebay item. Just take the bezel off your screen, the inverter is located at the bottom center. It has wires at each end. Unplug them. It may have 1 or 2 screws that need to be removed. Reverse this proccess with your new inverter.
If you are getting no lights at all it could be a bad power port or bad charger. Try to gently wiggle the plug around. If you get no lights, check the charger, you may need to replace it. If you get any lights then the solder on that port has probably broke loose. Very common. This involves a complete disection of your laptop, and the power port will have to be replaced. Only do this if you have good soldering skills. I would

Generally the USB ports are dead with the computer turned off. You can buy an external USB power supply/charger for home or vehicle; I recently ordered a set which includes both for <$10 US on eBay.

Hey my samsung laptop fell on the floor wen i triped over the wires and it landed were the charger puts its thing in but the charger was in a the time and now it wont stay inside it looks loose or broken...

Probably broken the nipple from the cable which goes into the laptop, and starts it charging. pull it out and inspect the nipple on the charger see for any breakages, if it has snapped etc then it will require a new charger.
If it hasn't then it will be a broken inside the laptop, best thing you can do is strip the laptop and have a look or take it to your local computer repair shop, and it will be sorted...its a common problem with laptops the charging damage.

The ac adapter should be slightly warm when plugged into the laptop, or it may have a green light. You can buy them cheap on ebay.

If the battery icon goes on / off when you wiggle the cord, the connector on the motherboard will have to be repaired, not an easy job.

It's probably not the battery itself that's bad.

Acer 7520 charging problem

Try another battery in the laptop to make sure the battery isn't bad. If you do that and the battery still doesn't charge then go ahead and try a different ac adapter.

If neither of these two steps solve it then it could be that the solder points underneath the DC Jack have hairline cracks in them. If this is the case then you'll have to get the motherboard out of the laptop and then with a soldering machine and some solder, you'll have to resolder all the solder points of the DC Jack to solve the problem.

That should take care of the problem but if it still doesn't charge then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Laptop not charging the battery

yeah, u tried all the thing which a layman could have done, r u familiar with the use of multimeter??

if so plz, open up the other laptop carefully, switch it on!!

with use of multimeter check the current, n voltage at the battery port.

then do the same with ur lappy.

repeat the thing for 2- times.

if both the reading r same ur battery will be charging but the there a BIOS fault, which can be fixed with little help from techincal support.

n plz tell the does ur lappy run if a charged battery is placed??

as u said the I guess the problem lies inbetween ur lappy n the motherboard.

if the readings r different, then maybe ur charging unit is damaged, kindlly replace it !!

all the best, thank u!!

plz take precautions n a well calibratied multimeter !!

thank u !!

if my solution is appropriate the plz vote me.. thank u!!

Definetly try a replacement battery first. If you take your battery to a batteries plus they might even be able to test it. If you give me the make and model of the laptop I could probably locate you the replacement part numbers and prices.

Acer Aspire 1360 d/c input port

I have the exact same problem, the dc jack port pin as come off of the motherboard I do not know where to even try to solder it. I hate their input jacks, the laptop, a Acer aspire 5570, is only 6 months old, and useless, because i cannot charge the battery or use the charger directly. What a poor design, designed to wear out. So I just end up buying a stand alone external battery charger online from at least i will be able to charge the battery and put it in the laptop
