U can place something small under the jack besides laptop so the jack will be a little bit tight.But my good good suggestion is just go to buy a new adapter and see how it is.

Studio 1737 wont recognize charger


Step 1:
If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge. You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly. When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop. It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling. If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power. This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury. A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible. Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open. The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors. Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery. Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it. See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed. If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced. If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number. Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay. If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems. Troubleshoot Mag Safe adaptors

The power jack has a crack solder connection on the motherboard, the only way to fix this you must take the laptop apart in order to address the issue, this task requires someone with high specialty skills to pull it off and be able to use a soldering iron to fix the problem.

The jack where youinsert the charger is loose can it be fixed


If you try to take it apart yourself you will likely void the warranty, so taking it to a cell phone repair shop would be the best option since the job likely requires soldering of some sort by looking at the problem. Being careful when putting the charger in also helps the jack not break internally. So yes it can be fixed, but let a professional do it because it may just be that the soldering came loose inside if it still charges fine.

First thing to check is that the battery is inserted properly. Take the battery out, make sure there's nothing on the contacts, and then put it back in. The problem could also be that the charging jack on your laptop is loose. If you hold the charging cable plug in the laptop with a little (not a lot) force, or push it a little to the front or back, does it stay charging? If it does then the jack is loose. Your temporary fix is to hold it the way you did while testing to see if it was the problem. Be aware, this fix is strictly temporary, eventually the jack will get loose enough and not make contact at all. Consider calling Compaq customer service and checking to see if it's covered by warranty.

Hp pavilion entertainment pc wont charge or turn on


Check the charger is throwing out the correct voltage at the DC jack
Do you get any lights flashing at the charger? If you do it indicates that power is not completing the circuit and is being "spat back". This would indicate a damaged charging circuit or possibly a loose power jack socket, if it feels loose as you plug it in, you may need to change the DC socket

The DC jack, where you plug the power adapter cable, might be loose or defective, & needs to be either re-soldered or replaced.
In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard taken out. Also, the motherboard needs to be checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Envy 1 won't charge. what can I do?


There is no way to fix this yourself unless you are handy with a soldering iron. The power jack that you plug the cord into has come loose off of the phone's mainboard. The only way to fix this (assuming you don't know how to use a soldering iron) is to take it to a phone dealer for repair.

Your AC adapter is dead. Look at the adapter after you plug it in the wall, if it is working, there should be a green LED lit on it. If this is the case and it still isn't working, you need to take a volt meter and read if there is output at the connector that plugs into the computer. Either way it looks like your adapter is defective and needs to be replaced.

Computer wont charge. Plugged up and still wont charge. Is it internal, battery or charger?


I'm not asking if the computer will charge, I'm asking if when you have it plugged in does the computer operate normally. You should be able to take the battery out of a laptop and plug in the computer in and the computer should still operate.
