I suspect that whoever replaced the DC jack didn't repair all the problem and the power doesn't get onto the motherboard. It's pretty easy to damage circuit traces when trying to replace the jack, or to overlook other damage caused by the jack going bad. You'll need to take the computer back to whoever worked on it and have it checked over again. I hope they provide some kind of warranty for their work.

Gateway kav60 not charging. i have to wiggle the cord and sometimes it refuses to charge.


I guess you've got a broken laptop power dc jack or power cable.


Symptoms of a broken Laptop DC power jack:


- The laptop only operates when you hold the DC power plug in a certain direction (DC jack is broken or loose).
- The laptop only runs on battery power (no power is getting through the DC jack).
- The laptop gets no power at all.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently due to a loose or broken power jack.
- The laptop suddenly shuts off.
- The DC jack may feel loose.
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop when you insert the power plug into the DC jack.

The battery will not charge if it runs down


HI there,

When a laptop/netbook will run on the A/C Adapter but the battery won't charge, there are only 3 things that can be wrong.

1. The battery is dead (replace the battery)
2. The A/C adapter's charging system is not functioning but the power function is. (replace the A/C adapter)
3. The DC power jack which is where the adapter plugs into the laptop is partially failing, providing power but no charging. (replace the DC jack)

Try to find a friend with an adapter/charger that fits your netbook and see what happens with that first. If that doesn't work, try to find someone whose Netbook takes the same battery and test if yours will charge in their laptop. After that, if your battery's not dead and you have a working charger, it's the DC jack and that costs about 80 to 100 to be replaced. They have to take apart the netbook, remove the jack and solder on a new one.

Good Luck

Marcus

My PSP won't hold its charge anymore. We tried a new battery and it still won't charge well. Is it possible it's the charging mechanism inside the PSP? Is that easily replaceable?


Sounds like the dc jack is bad in the psp. From a place like this you can order a new psp dc jack:

This site shows you how to open up the psp:

Its cheap to get the dc jack the time consuming part is taking it apart and taking out the old one and putting in the new one.

If you do all of this and the known good battery still won't chage then that means the board is bad and would need to be replaced.

Dell Inspiron 1505; Battery does not charge; DC jack is loose..


The loose connection for the AC adapter means the motherboard needs to be replaced or the AC adapter jack on the motherboard needs to be replaced. (With Labor, it is about the same cost to buy a new motherboard as it is to have the old one fixed)

Motherboards are available on EBay for around $100

THe DC Jack Is the Port where Your AC Adapter Plug Plugs into on the laptop.... THis can be proprietary or non proprietary.... But Either way, the Old Faulty Jack Needs To Be Desoldered and Removed, THe Board Cleaned and a New DC Jack Soldered On.. You Will Then Be able To Power On Laptop With AC Charger and Will again Be Able To CHarge The Battery..
