Charger Port Problem

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.

SOURCE: my laptop charger wont charge the laptop and is

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

Hey there,

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.

Male power port is loose hard to chasrge unit


The port is female with a center pin, the male portion is on the charger.
If you damaged this pin and it is loose you will need to replace the plug on the charger. Since these are very similar to some laptop charging ports, having a broken laptop around with same size charging port would be a bonus, or a friend with one too, but they are relatively cheap, I fix broken ones on laptops several times a year and can find a pair of them shipped for under $10 typically.
Sometimes you need to solder them on, sometimes they connect with a dongle, should be easy enough to take apart and peek inside.
Other wise, if that is beyond your expertise, does the charger have a cigarette lighter, you could likely charge it through that port, or with a trickle charger directly on the battery cables on the unit if need be.

Why your phone won't charge


<span>Hello,<br /><br />there are three or more reason why your your phone won't charge;<br /><br />1. The charger might be defective.<br />2. The charging port of the phone might be defective.<br />3. The battery cell might be very weak or the battery might be defective.<br /><br />Charger<br /><br />A defective charge can cause a phone not to charge. To actually find out if your charger is defective or not, borrow a charger from a family or friend that has the type of your phone, use the borrowed charger to on your phone. If the the phone charges, then obviously, your charger is defective and need to be replaced. It is also good to test your charger on another phone to confirm the status of the charger.<br /><br />Make sure you run the above test, before buying another charger so that you don't waste your money. Sometimes, charger might be working and phone won't charge due to some other reasons that would be discussed below. So confirm first before buying another charge. Don't buy another charged based on assumptions........<br /><br />Battery<br /><br />A battery that is very flat, I mean a battery that its cell is very weak, won't charge with a phone charger. You might have to leave the battery in the phone with the charge plugged in for some minutes or hours before the battery will begin to charge and other times, it might not charge at all.<br /><br />What make batteries to be in this kind of condition is; <br /><br />1. If you use you phone to the point when it says "low battery" and you still don't charge the battery and the phone turns off by itself. This can run down a battery cell.<br />2. If you leave a battery in the phone idle for a days or months, the battery cell will become weak. Or if you leave a battery used for days or months.<br />3. If you don't use the correct/right charger for your phone, this can drain the battery instead of charging it.<br /><br />Batteries in such condition will have to be fast charged with a desktop charger. The desktop charger will be connected directly to the battery and the battery will definitely pick up within 1 hour. Thereafter, you can continue charging it with your phone charger and it will charge immediately.<br /><br />But if the battery is defective, it won't charge at all. Even if you use a desktop charger. Such batteries needs to be replaced. Also, it is good to test the phone with another battery, and charge it to confirm before buying another battery.<br /><br />Below is a picture of what a desktop charger looks like;<br /><br /><img src="walesarumi_4.jpg" /><img src="walesarumi_3.jpg" /><br /><br />Charging port<br /><br />If non of the above seems to be the reason why your phone won't charger, then it means the charging port is defective. <br /><br />Most times defective charging port confuses people. They think the charger is the reason why their phone won't charge and after using another charger on their phone they still find out that the does still does not charge.<br /><br />Once your phone doesn't charge, the first this you test is the charger and second, the battery. But if the battery and charger seems not to be the cause of the problem, then it is the charging port that is cause the problem.<br /><br />Your charging port might not be defective, maybe it loosed contact with the phone phone or it shifted from it's position. Sometimes, the way we forcefully insert our charger into the phone can make the charging port loose contact.<br /><br />At this point, you will have to disassemble your phone. But if you feel it is a task you cannot perform yourself, then take the phone to a repairman to help you out. But if you feel you can do it yourself (DIY), read further.<br /><br />Turn off the phone. Remove the battery. After that, get a phone screw driver, unscrew all the phone screws, remove the phone cover in order to gain access to the phone panel and get to the charging port. <br /><br />Check if the charging port actually loosed contact. If it didn't loose contact, then you will have to replace the charging port. <br /><br />Note that some charging port are soldered to the phone board and some are not. So if yours is not soldered, simply remove the charging port and make a replacement. But if is soldered, you will be needing a rework station. Rework station is what you will use to remove the charging port.<br /><br />Below is a picture of what the rework station looks like;<br /><br /><img src="walesarumi_5.jpg" /> <img src="walesarumi_6.jpg" /><br /><br />I hope the above makes sense to you.......<br /><br />Good luck.<br /></span>

My eee pc 1005hab laptop won't charge. I have it connected to the charger and nothing I don't know what to do. Please help


When this happends, the three usual suspects are the charger, the charging port (where the charger plugs into the laptop), or the motherboard itself.
Now to see where the problem lies. These would be my first steps...

1> Is there a light on the charger, if so, does it light up? If it does have a light, and it lights up then we can leave the charger out of the equation. If it has a light and it does not light up, we can assume the charger is the culprit. If it does not have a light, you will need a voltage tester.
2> Is where you plug the charger into the laptop loose? Sometimes, the charging port on the laptop can become loose (separation or partial separation (also known as a short) from the motherboard and loose the connection to the laptop. This keeps the energy from reaching both the laptop and the battery to create a charge.
God luck!

My galaxy 3 phone will not charge properly how do i fix it


Charging issues is a process of elimination. First the charger....many chargers will fit but not all that fit will work. A bluetooth charger will fit but would never charge your battery completely. Make sure you are using a proper charger. 2nd is the charging port on the phone. If the charger is loose it could be a bad port or the prongs on the charger are not holding....is it loose? Or if there is corrosion on the port. If corrosion, clean with alcohol and tooth brush. 3rd is the battery. If its swollen, then it's toast. A li-on battery will start to decrease after 400 to 500 charges.

It could be one of these three things.
1. Bad port. Often in laptops these ports become loose.
2. Bad battery.
3. Bad charger.

Borrowing either a universal power charger, or the charger from someone with a similar laptop, can eliminate some of the possibilities unless it is indeed your charging port.

If after plugging it in, the battery charges you know you had a bad charger. If the battery fails to charge, you know its time for a new battery. Again this only if the port itself is not bad.

Universal chargers can be expensive. You can find batteries and chargers on Ebay for a decent price.

The charging indicator light no longer comes on when the laptop is plugged in. Just replaced the battery. Also tried a different power cord.


Possibly a failed or damaged charging port (does it feel loose)? After that, charger may not be chucking out the voltage (19.5 volts)? Test with multimeter set to DV volts, with one probe on the inside of the plug ant the other on the outside.

Does the charger LED light blink when connected (sign that power is not making a circuit)

If the above fail to work, then the problem is with the connector on the mobo, this may just be a Charger port needing replacing (wired or soldered version), or the charging circuit of the motherboard gone

Batterey wont charge, charging port real loose. Is


If the charger port is already loose and the battery doesnt accept charge anymore then you have to replace the motherboard of the laptop. Port cannot be replaced individually,you have to replace the whole part for this issue.You can contact the manufacturer of your system and if it is in warranty then they will replace it for you.Try to check the charger/ac adapter make sure no part is damaged aswell...cheers!!!

The charger port on the computer is loose how do i open the port


unfortunately you will have to open up the notebook, take out the hdd, optical drive, wlan card, ram card(s), motherboard, and under the mb, there will be your charger port. Recomandation: Don't try to fix it yourself, UNLESS you know what you are doing. If you don't just go to the local repair shop.
