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.
The tray has become misalligned. If you want to fix it on your own heres what you do. Remove the 6 (or 8 depending on generation) screws on the bottom. Remove the warranty sticker on the back by the power switch. With the front towards you, lift the top while tilting slightly toward the front and pivoting it by the power/eject buttons. Either remove the button assembly by popping it off the lid or just be careful not to tear the cable. Remove 4 philips screws from the cd mech lid and lift off. Remove two philips screws from the tray hinge. Lift and slide tray out of front. Push white gear frame at front of tray area to the right and hold it there while you put the tray back in. Reassembly is reverse of disassembly.
When looking at the front of the unit. The metal grill has 4 crimped tension points on top, 4 on the bottom, and 2 on each side (total of 12). Use a small flat screwdriver to gently pry them forward, I just gently pulled on the top four, starting at one end and working towards the other. Then gently lift the grill off.
Then there are 8 P1 (#1 Phillips) screws on the front. There are also 2 Phillips screws on the bottom, 1 under each of the rubbery feet.
Once they are all removed (10 screws in total) the unit simply opens in 2 halves.
If the unit powers on, but not reading a disk try moving the laser back and forth. If it doesnt seem to move smoothly, then the motor that moves the laser has probably come out of the socket. I have seen this on multiple units after they have been dropped. If this is the case you will have to remove the 6 screw covers and screws from the bottom of the ps2. Then remove the top cover starting at the back. Be careful not to break off the power switch. Then look for the brass gear that moves the laser back and fourth on the right side of the unit. Push it back towards the motor and back in the hole. Hope this helps
You need to remove the screws on the bottom of the laptop. Once the right screws are removed the case will seperate exposing the MOBO and that and you should see the dc jack (power jack) as forwarning, almost ALL dc jacks are sodered to the motherboard..and not easy to successfully replace.
Sometimes someone will have somethhing sticky on their fingers when they press the power reset button and cause it to glue in place. What you have to do is Remove the screw covers, and 6 screws from the bottom of the slim. These covers are square and one is under the warranty sticker. Tow of the rubber pad feet will remove to expose the screws. Use a knife to pry up the covers. Two of the rubber feet do not remove, they are the ones closest to the front. Open the case, and check to see if you can clean up the power switch button. It is attach to the top half. no problem getting the plastic top half wet when you clean it.
