My laptop charging port is not working problem. I have to wiggle it about and selotape it into place for the computer to charge. What do you think is the most likely cause the port its self or the charger?

I think it is because of the loose dc jack. So
You need to get the DC Power Jack Either Repaired or replaced...this is the "female" port where your AC Power cord plugs into.. To Repair the current DC Jack...First you'll need to look closely at the Positive posts to see that they are not broken.. If visibally ok.. then you can look at the Solder Connections.. they will need to first be Desoldered.. Cleaned, then Resoldered back in place....

Gateway solo 1450 laptop will not power up.

1. remove main battery and test with just ac charger.
2. test ac charger with multimeter or test notebook with good charger.
3. remove any memory, then test each stick once at a time in each slot.
4. if only 1 stick, get and test with a known good stick, in each slot.
5. plug into external monitor and then power on to test if its a screen issue.
6. clear bios - usually by removing main AND BIOS battery, wait 5 mins.
7. remove all hardware - hdd, odd, wlan, modem, etc and test.
8. remove mainboard, reseat cpu, benchtest
9. test power is getting past DC port - ie, DC port is not broken...

if fails on bench after clearing bios, reseating cpu, with different sticks of memory tested in each slot, with a known good AC charger, and dc port is undamaged, the board is faulty.

hope this helps.

My notebook 2133 is completely dead charger is working ok I think its the battery


Im very sorry to hear that,For you to be able to isolate the exact problem, try to do these steps. Removed the battery then connect the laptop directly to the power outlet then power on the laptop, if the laptop turn on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine if not, theres a possibility that the problem is with the AC adapter or the DC port on the laptop itself.If the problem is with the DC port on the computer itself,it maybe loose or totally broken, If its the DC port itself, you will need to replaced the Motherboard or lets just hope that its just the Base Cover that needs to be replaced...

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

The stinger from my car charger has broken off

this is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

disregard the test for charging if you know your power port is broken and go to the bottom for further help

try the car charger2_bing.gif.

make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

the following magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

if you need further help, just let me know.

DC input jack broken

you need to buy a new jack for replacement. then solder the broken one out of the mainboard and clean the place and solder the new one. or some acer have a separet jack then that one is easy only to change.
