You need to remove the main board to get at the bottom, the solder side. You'll also need an appropriate size soldering iron and solder wick for unsoldering the old jack. And of course you will need the replacement jack.

The hardest part is removing the board. You need to remove all the screws necessary to take off the keyboard, display and top cover. Then you need to remove any modules (hard drive, CD drive, etc.) as required. Finally you can take out the screws holding the main board in and lift it off the bottom cover. Replacing the power jack itself is a simple soldering job (if you have the tools and experience). Use solder wick (or a desoldering iron) to unsolder the old jack, put in the new one and resolder the connections.

The disassembly process for most models is basically the same. There are a number of videos on youtube showing how it's done for a few models. You can search youtube to see if one is the same model you have, or just watch a few of the videos to see the general procedure.

It's not an impossible repair if you are patient, have the necessary tools (small screwdrivers, soldeing equipment, etc.) and enough room to set parts aside as you work so you can keep them organized. When I worked at a computer shop our repair charge for jack replacement was around $100, so you can save some money if you do it yourself. But you can also do more harm than good if you're not careful, so you might want to get an estimate if you're no sure.

Good luck! If you have found my solution helpful, please take a moment to rate it accordingly. Thanks for asking here!

How to replace the DC Power jack of my acer aspire 7735Z


Replacing a DC Power jack in any computer is no easy task. However, it can be done by any novice. First, get on ebay and see what jack you need. Search for you jack by entering Acer Aspire 7735z jack. Most of the new ones have the cable attached to the jack instead of the old fashion solder.

Next, Google this question and check out the YouTube videos regarding Acer DC Jack replacement. It will give you an idea as to what you need to do. You may want to take a video camera and record what steps you take when you take it apart so you can review how to put it back together. Also, get a sewing box or something so you can put the screws in a separate container for the order you removed them; ie: bottom screws; hard drive screws, DVD mount screw... etc..

You always have to start with the bottom and work your way to the top. You will have to remove the palm rest, keyboard, heat shields and any other piece of hardware to get to it.

Acer aspire 5740 no power


Hello,

It sounds lie the charger jack in the laptop is broken. When you installed the new battery the laptop had power to run several hours but once the battery drained it could not be charged back up. Check the charging jack when the charger plugs into. I would bet that you will find to loose or broken. These jacks can be replaced but you will need to take the laptop apart and do a little soldering to do the job. Check Ebay for the jack, you can do a search for your model laptop along with "power jack", the parts should run less than $10 with shipping.

I reset my surge protector and the computer wont power up. i think i need a new power supply. the power cord is working fine. Please let me know where i can find a power supply for the aspire...


The Acer Aspire L100 is a desktop computer powered by a special DC adapter and power cable. The computer's motherboard incorporates a fuse designed to prevent any power surges from damaging the computer. If the fuse burns out due to a power surge or for any other reason, the computer will no longer function. You can check the motherboard fuse for damage yourself, then take it to a trained technician for replacement if needed

Shut down the Acer Aspire L100 and turn the tower around.

Press the "On/Off" button on the front of the tower. If the computer will not boot and the fan does not turn on, the fuse may be burned out.

Unplug the power cord from the rear of the tower

Turn the tower on its side and remove the Phillips-head screws connecting the back panel to the Aspire L100's cabinet.

Pull out the motherboard assembly gently from the back of the cabinet. The internal fuse is located on the motherboard behind the DC power jack, which is to the right of the monitor jack

Let me know if this helped..
