How do I replace the DC Jack on an Acer 3002lci?

I love the laptop but its not worth spending the $125 to $150 to have someone do it for me. I am willing to sacrifice the laptop if I screw it up.

    Thx for the quick response. My main issue is getting to the jack. Do I need to remove the keyboard and go in that way or can I get there from the back(bottom of the computer).

    Thanks

Basically it is just a matter of desoldering the old one, using a desoldering iron with a pump to remove the excess solder the resoldering the new one. Since you're willing to sacrifice, it can't hurt just be careful how much heat you apply because with multi layer boards you can easily screw something up by applying to much heat or solder. Good luck and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

    You're welcome.

    First, can we get rid of this bad rating? Please rerate as fixya.

    The whole motherboard will have to be removed from the case. This involves removing the keyboard, LCD screen, palmrest assembly, and bottom base.

    On the brighter side, if you are successful, you could be the person charging $125 to fix them! :c)

How do replace the DC jack on a samsung NP300V5A laptop


DC Power Jacks for the most part are soldered onto the motherboard. There are some models where the DC Power Jack and the cable harness just sits in a slot on the motherboard. And there are some models where the DC Power Jack is soldered on a little circuit board that is secured by screws to hold it into place. In any case to get to the Internal DC Power Jack you have to disassemble the laptop. And if it's soldered onto the motherboard, you will spend time unsoldering the old broken Jack before you can install the new one. Get a quote from a local repair shop, then check the guys out at: http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com They will repair it and ship it back to you via Fedex or UPS cheaper than most quotes you get including the shipping charge.

Acer Aspire 5920 will not power on. Power Cord, Charger, Adapter and Battery work fine. Adapter lights up green, no power light on computer keyboard or On/Off switch. CPU Fan is not working. Is there a...


There is a cmos/ rtc battery but that would have nothing to do with powering on your laptop. Most likely there is an issue in the circuit at the DC power jack. If the connection seems loose, or moving the plug at the point where it connects to the computer gives a glimmer of power then it is the jack. The DC jack is usually soldered to the motherboard and requires some knowledge to repair. If the jack is okay then there is a problem further up in the power circuit on the motherboard which means trouble.

This is what you power jack looks like and yours is not soldered, but has a 4 pin connector that plugs in to the motherboard. Much easier to replace than a soldered connection. Click HERE to see it.

P.S. Just because there is a green light on the adapter it doesn't mean power is being distributed to the connector tip. You may want to try a different adapter before spending money to have it diagnosed.

DC connector loose in laptop,no power in the laptop


Apparently the DC connector broke. If the warranty is still in operation, have it repaired; else, the damage can be easily fixed by any electronics shop, or even by yourself if you're familiar with a soldering iron for electronics. This guide is for a different model, but the DC section is practically the same in all laptops:

DC input jack broken


Yes it's not usually something that can be repaired at home. Your chances are better if the jack just seems loose and not actually broken, however replacing it is better. I work for a Laptop Repair Shop in NYC and we deal with this issue frequently.

Acer 3000 Loose Ac connection.


Good day, Army4!

The two most common causes for this are 1- the DC power jack is loose or damaged. You will have to remove the motherboard to gain access so that you can replace or resolder it. 2- The connector or wire on the cord that comes from the AC adapter is defective or has an intermittent open. In some cases, you can replace the cord, or you may have to replace the entire AC adapter, or (if your are a bit adventuresome, and have a little experience in electrical/electronic repair) you may be able to find the fault and fix it.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating. If this information has answered your question and/or lead to a resolution, please rate it as "Fixya!".
Thank you, and have a super day!
