Charging adapter in laptop may need to be resoldered or replaced. Some of these are a plug in type and you may just have to super glue the plug back in place inside of laptop. The plastic tabs break after awhile

SOURCE: the power plug won't charge the battery which prevents the computer coming on

With no battery fitted to the Laptop and the power supply fitted and working o/k, the Laptop is dead. Could it be the convertor on the motherboard faulty , if so, can it be repaired.

SOURCE: Toshiba L300 satellite --- Power cord does not connect!

Unplug the powercord and try to move around the DC-Jack with a small flatheat screwdriver. If the jack moves around freely or the middle pin has too much slack you most likely have a defective DC-Jack. You can replace it yourself there are guides online that show you how to do this. The repair takes about 2-3 hours. I work for a company called Laptop Repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.

SOURCE: Port loose? Laptop won't keep charging

You might be able to replace the jack easily enough. I am not sure what model you have, but some Compaq laptops have modular jacks, meaning they can be replaced instead of having to be repaired or having to replace the entire motherboard. I would recommend you do this or have someone qualified to do this beucase if you leave it as-is then you might burn something out on your Motherboard.

SOURCE: My power cord is loose. It plugs in and charges,

Hello !

If I'm understanding you correctly, the wiggle is from the laptop. Sounds like a problem is about to happen. Your Presario has a loose power jack (connector inside the laptop). It is a part that can be replaced.

If you need further info, let us know.

Hope this helps.

I could be either to do with a loose wire inside the laptop, or more likely a setting on your power profiles. I would suggest going through the advance options looking for a setting which says - when low battery switch off wireless adapter.

Our magellan keeps turning off. the plug seem loose. could it be the cord or is it the battery and can it be changed


Check your power cord. You may be losing power at the plug. When plugged in it may be losing contact with the recepticle. The power indicator light initially comes on but, breaks contact and therefore stops charging the unit. If this is the case you can sometimes plug into an adapter and get a tighter fit.

The charging cord isn't the problem here. I've seen this a few times on laptops, and the fix isn't achievable by anyone other than an expert. The problem is the power socket that's soldered to the motherboard is loose (when you plug the charging cord into the computer, you're actually plugging it into the power socket attached to the motherboard). To fix it requires that socket to be re-soldered to the motherboard. I recommend consulting a professional computer repairman.

Seems more like a problem with the power receptacle where you plug the power cord into the laptop.In order to fix this problem, you will need to disassemble the unit to get access to the motherboard & replace the power receptacle with a good one.

No connection with the DC Jack on Gateway 3550GZ


It's time to take the computer to a qualified technician, for proper trouble-shooting & repair, because there are very-few "user-repairable" parts inside a laptop/notebook computer.

Won't charge


The plug in terminal that is soldered to a board inside the laptop has a loose solder connection. This procedure require opening the laptop and some soldering iron, and some solder. If you are not confident in doing this don't try it cuz you can mess up your laptop forever.

Power issue


The power cord might be bent or screwed up. Or option two, the actual power connection in your laptop (i.e. the place where you plug in the cord to the laptop) could be broken on the inside.

Worse case scenario, it could be both.

If it is just the laptop cord, try another connection cord that will plug into your laptop. If it works, buy a universal adapter.

If it doesn't work, and you notice that when you plug it in to the laptop, it kind of wiggles around a bit or seems loose on the "inside" of the laptop ... you might need to take it in to a shop to have a new power connector sodered into place in your laptop.

Best of luck.
