Re: Power jack removal and installation

Most laptops use a combination of screws and tab/slots clamping to keep the clam shell halves together. The tabs fit carefully into the mating slots, so it is up to you to find them. Carefully press in on the sides where the clam shell halves mate and find locations where it is more difficult to press inward. This area will be a place where to find a tab/slot mate.

Show me how to replace power jack

LOL, you've go to take the laptop apart because in most cases the DC Power Jack is soldered onto the motherboard. That means once you get the motherboard out of the laptop be prepared to spend an hour or two trying to desolder and remove the one that is bad. This is like being a surgeon. You have to be very careful or you will damage the motherboard. Once you've got it off, then you have to solder the new jack onto the motherboard and put the thing back together.

How do I replace fujitsu 2727 power socket

Get it fixed by going to , replacing the dc power jack requires taking apart the entire laptop, then removing the motherboard, and finally desoldering the power socket, and resoldering the new jack, and putting everything back together, its no job for a beginner. Not being rude at all, but if you have to ask how, dont attempt. , they have replaced many power jacks for my laptops, as well as my companies, they give a lifetime warranty, and will ship the laptop back to you within 24hrs. believe me, I have tried different companies, and they are def best.

Hi Mu c1020 have prover problem , it seems that


It sounds like the DC socket has either worked itself loose from the motherboard or it has broken off. Either way this problem can be repaired.

You have 2 choices available to you, you can take the laptop to reputable computer repair store and have them fit a new DC socket for you, or you can purchase a DC socket from places like eBay for example and disassemble the laptop to solder it in yourself.

In both cases the cost should be fairly inexpensive.

Please post back if you require anymore assistance.

Dry joint problem on power socket


First thing is to remove the top bezel. This is the piece of plastic between the keyboard and the display. Since you have removed all the bottom screws, you should be able to pop the bezel off by inserting the tip of a small flathead screwdriver under one of the plastic hinge covers. Check the back of the hinge covers for screws and remove any you see first. Once the bezel is off, remove the screws securing the keyboard and remove the keyboard. Be careful with the keyboard ribbon cable and the connector for it, they are fragile. Flip it over and remove any bottom panels. Disconnect the wireless antenna cables from the wireless card (usually black and white). Flip it over again. Snake the wireless antenna cables up through to the top and disconnect the other thicker cable (video and power) from the mainboard. Now you need to remove the display. After the display is off, remove the optical (dvd) drive. Remove any case screws you see from under where the keyboard was. You should be able to get it apart now. Be VERY mindful of connector wires/ribbons as you take it apart.

When soldering the joints (do em all on the power jack) be careful not to heat up the area too much as there are often very sensitive fuses close to the power jack. Do the joints quickly and do not use an excessive amount of solder. After you solder it, dry-fit the laptop back together and test it. If it's good, lay a small bead of hot glue around the base of the dc power jack to reinforce it.

Post a comment and let me know how you make out!!

It's probably the power socket on the laptop not the power jack on the AC adapter. You need to open the laptop by removing the casing screws. Then remove the motherboard from the base so a new socket can be soldered on.

Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173


DC jack replacement is easy however requires a bit care since its mounted on the mainboard. Desolder the old DC jack. Solder the new one firmly. Dont keep the soldering iron too long on the PCB as it will damage the lines and will deform the DC Jack. You can get DC jack very low cos from local repair stores or you can order from Toshiba parts depot (800-524-8338)
Please post your question if you need further assistance.
Good Luck
