Question about Toshiba Satellite Laptop L655S5150
The charger port on my laptop is loose and no longer charges my battery. Unfortunately I do not have the funds to have this fixed, which I was told it could be anywhere from $200-$400. What are to cheap and effective ways to fix this problem?
This is a common problem. The connector probably just needs re-soldering. Don't let the repair shop try and tell you it's a major job, they just need to whip the top off and solder the connector pins.

Not that hard to fix if you are careful about taking it apart and re-assembling it. A digital camera is helpful during the dis-assembly to remind you later where everything went. Took me about 2 hours the first time I did one. Just take your time.
When your done, get a CRD (Cable Retention Device) to relieve the strain on the cable and the pin. I use one from this company.

I have an A-135-S5900. This could be one of two problems. Number one would be the power cord has gone bad and you need a replacement. Walmart sells the universal type that has several different fittings with it for different laqptops. Number two would be the power cord connection on the laptop has broken loose from the motherboard. When you plug the power cord into the laptop, does it wiggle and feel loose? If it does, this is probably the problem. This one is fixable but you have to know what you're doing. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: the laptop wont charge
I recommend grabbing an auto-voltage switching laptop charger. I'd tryUniversal Laptop Chargers, I bought mine from them a couple of monthsago and it works a treat.
Most importantly for you I think, if you buy from them and it doesn'tfit, I believe they will give you a refund. However, a quick look ontheir website suggests they have the right head for a Dell laptop, so Ithink you'll be fine.
I personally like it since it basically has the look and feel of a 120pound charger you can buy at PC World, but for a fraction of the pricesince they're online. And it charges my mobile phone too, so I'm veryhappy with it. :-)
Let us know how you get on!

Basically the input power socket need to be replaced. To get at this power socket will require the laptop to be completely dismantled to remove the motherboard to gain access to this power socket. If you find this too dificult to DIY then I suggest you get a quote from a computer repairer before you get this job done.
