Before assuming the worse, let us assume it is a damaged DC jack. This can be replaced by expert personnel and it costs less than a motherboard replacement.

How to disassemble charging port aspire 6935g

Before you disassemble the computer to determine if it is the charging port; have you had the power brick tested? It can easily be checked with a multi-meter. If so; checkout YouTube. Google Acer DC Jack replacement and watch the videos. The majority of the computers out there are laid out pretty much the same. It will give you an idea what you need to do to replace it. Look on eBay for the replacement jack; it's cheap and should be free shipping.

When you remove the screws, put them in a sewing box in the order you removed them. It will be easier to remember where they go when you put it back together. Also, you may want to use a video camera so you have a record on what steps you took to remove it so you can reverse the order to put it back together.

I need a Linkco MC-316 power cord hook up to my Waring fryer. Can you give suggestion?

I also went crazy looking for this part! I even went to the waring website and tried to figure out which deep dryer I had that would match the 4 diff. chords they have as replacements, then I discoverd' "finally", an answer. they have a list of model numbers that you can choose from by model number. So i read thier instructions, went to the back or bottom of my deep fryer, found the model number, mine was DF250B, ordered the part from the list of thier model numbers and presto $14.00 later, I'm having my chord shipped to me!!!!!!!!Waring needs to do a better job putting the two together. Good luck everyone!

Dell Inspiron 1501 Power Cord will not stay put

With your first problem: If the power cord is not damaged, it is most likely the DC jack in the computer is damaged. A new one can be soldered on the motherboard in most cases. It's a 50/50 chance that it will work though. The second problem: The only fix I can offer is to purchase a new keyboard for the laptop and replace it. Hope this helps.

Waring blender - new blade

I just figured it out. The key is you need to think in terms of keeping the blades and the large washers separate. Here's what you do.
Thread the blade through the glass and use the white rubber gaskets against the glass and the stainless gaskets against the hardware. Then tighten the whole enchilada to the blender with the main nut (that goes on the bottom outside of the blender). Then once that's nice and tight tighten the flange that catches the blender teeth to the remaining portion of the protruding threads. Make sure you use the copper colored gasket first then the stainless washer then the stainless flange. Tighten that real good and you should be good to go.
To check if you've done it right spin the flange. If the blades spin independent of everything else you're good to blend away!

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
