Question about Averatec 3200 Notebook
My plug in to charge my pc is broke need help how to fix it
A helpful hint for anybody that has to repair the power pin is after you repair the pin make sure you use a CRD (Cable Retention Device) to keep from causing the problem again. I use and recommend the JerkStopper. Even some Mac (MagSafe) Users are using it these days. We have three in use in our household (2 Fujitsu laptops and 1 Mac).

AVERATEC IS FIXING THE POWER SUPPLY PLUG UNDER WARRANTY REGARDLESS OF THE AGE OF THE LAPTOP. MINE WAS 4 YEARS OLD AND I SENT TO TEXAS AND IT WAS REPAIRED AT NO CHARGE. THE PART WAS DEFECTIVE IN MANY UNITS. CAUSING THE MACHINE TO OVERHEAT OR NOT CHARGE. IF U CANT FIND THE NUMBER TO CALL SEND ME AN EMAIL.. [email protected]
PS I NEED A COPY OF THE INSTALL DISKS THAT CAME WITH THE 3200 AVERATEC

Hi I am a new guy here and someone helped me out. Now it's my turn. 2 years ago my Averatec 3200 power jack broke. I ebay searched an Averatec 3200 power board replacement. This replaces the little board the jack is mounted on and includes a very solid external screw down connector for about $50.00. It's the best power jack solution out there except for Apple's magnetic connector. This is the latest link. good luck.

Of course you can fix it. The power jack on my Averatec 3200 laptop shattered as well. You just need a new jack that fits the power supply connector, some thick stranded wire, and some basic soldering skills.
Unfortunately I was unable to find exactly the same jack they used, so I couldn't solder it straight into the motherboard like the old one. It was also a pain to disassemble the laptop, keep all of your screws in a dish!
Once you get your laptop disassmbled:
This will look ghetto, but my laptop has run great for over a year since that fix (until it recently started overheating). If you can manage to find the exact same power jack that they used, bringing wires out to a different shaped jack won't be necessary.
I'll be taking my laptop apart again soon, so if you need some pics let me know.
