WHAT ARE TRANSFORMERS


Wall socket power (high voltage) is known as AC (Alternating Current). Battery power (low voltage) is known as DC (Direct Current). Transformers are electrical converters that change AC input to DC output or DC input to AC output. This is required to charge or to supply mains power for most portable devices that use batteries when not plugged in, or devices that do not have batteries but still require DC power input. Examples of such devices are laptops, phones, tablets, printers, print servers etc. A transformer for your print server is most likely a black box in line with the power cable. In this case you will need a new power cable which will include the transformer. Some transformers are within the device itself with a power socket in the back of the device. If this is the case then replacement of the transformer (or sometimes the whole device) is required depending on the price of parts, sometimes replacing the whole device is cheaper.

I need a n ew DC power jack for my pandigital


Most of the Pandigital tablets use the power adapter APR001 which provides 5V at 2A. This is available from Geeks.com here: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=APR001 . Other vendors may also have the adapter.

If you need to replace the jack where the adapter connects, try Radio Shack or http://www.mcmelectronics.com . You need to measure the existing jack dimensions carefully. (This ensures that the adapter will connect properly.) When you desolder the old jack and solder in the new one, make sure that you keep the polarity the same. (Otherwise the adapter may not work.)

I hope this helps.

LOL, sounds like your tablet has seen it's better days. See why HP got out of the Tablet business? They are nothing but trouble.

Hello my laptop t41 power is not even flash but the adapter is working,am technician and i have troubleshoot allot.


I concur with what Diegotech stated.

To iterate further;

1) The DC Power Jack (DC IN), may have cracked solder joint/s on the motherboard connector, (Female), where the DC Power Jack plugs in.

Resolder

2) The DC Power Jack may be broken.
Center Pin mount, and/or body of DC Power Jack, and/or Outer Shell mount.

Replace DC Power Jack.

3) Wires from the DC Power jack plug to the female connector on the motherboard, may be bad.

Replace DC Power Jack.

2) http://www.machinaelectronics.com/store/buypart/IBM_Thinkpad_T41/DC-P001

Past this point it's a bad DC sensor on the motherboard.

Replace motherboard.

How do you replace the power jack socket?


Hi there,

I'm a laptop repair specialist. The DC Power Jack is soldered to the motherboard. While I am able to do this repair I no longer take the trouble because there are many vendors on eBay who perform the service for half, or less than half, of what I'd have to charge a customer.

Go to eBay and in the search window type in "Laptop DC Power Jack Repair". You will be re-directed to a page with many choices of vendors where you simply send them the laptop and they return it repaired. You should expect to pay between about $85 to $125 including all shipping.

Take care,

So far, I've been using an AC power converter for my Toshiba Portégé 3440CT PC notebook that has a round DC plug on the end of the DC cable. This means I have to plug this into the multimedia...


Just for fun I did a Google search for replacement adaptor vendors in the UK. Here are the first couple that came up: one place, another one. You shouldn't have any trouble finding what you need on your side of the pond.

And I have no idea if there's a specific name for that type connector. It's just called "power jack" in Toshiba's parts list.

Power socket is loose


dc jack socket for Sony VAIO VGN-FW is very easy to loose, I think you can replace the cabled dc jack, no solder work, plug in and work, see this reference page: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-vgnfw-series-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2647.html
the above item is with ground cable, it is known that sony FW uses both harnesses with or without ground cable, you can cut the ground cable directly if your laptop does not use it, or order from this page for the one without ground cable: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-07300012492a-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2782.html
hope this can help you

You have to strip it down, remove motherboard, desolder old DC socket and solder new DC socket in.
