Question about TV Accessories
Has anyone changed a powerjack for a laptop? How involved is it? Is dead, dont get voltage reading back of the jack, but adaptor is ok.
Cannot find part for it.
I did this myself with my HP laptop and after many tedious hours of work I was able to remove the motherboard, remove the dc jack, and resauder a new one on the board and it worked out perfectly.
If you feel comfortable doing the work yourself first start off by removing the screws on the bottom. You then should be able to remove the keyboard, look for a cable that connects it to the board. Now you should be able to remove the pieces of the case around the keyboard, look for the cable connecting the touchpad to the motherboard. After that you should be able to remove the LCD screen, look for the cable connecting it to the motherboard. Now remove the screws holding the motherboard in and remove the tiny bolts around the external monitor connector and the printer connector if you have one. Now you should have access to the DC jack. You will need to sauder the current one off the board and resauder a new one on. Keep track of the many many screws and try placing the components in the order they came out so will know which ones need to go back in in the proper order.
This is VERY tedious if you are not familiar with working on laptop hardware. You maybe able to find a local shop willing to do this or you can look online for a place that replaces DC jacks on motherboards.
Hope this helps!

Remove the power cord, battery and all accessory covers on the bottom. Then remove all bottom screws plus the ones under the harddrive and battery. There are retaining clips around the battery holding area and the
front release button. Just use a pocket knife and pry between the
bottom cover and the side of the case to break them lose.
I fixed my friends by removing the bottom cover and then soldering the main pin in the back of the power jack back to the rear copper clip. It must break lose after being wiggled. I had to add flux to get the solder to stick. It is about a 30 minute repair after you know what to do.

I have the same laptop,and had the same problem.After enough prying,I got the bottom off to find a plactic clip near the LCD latch button.The service manual says after removing the screws on the bottom,lift the bottom off.They don't mention anything about having to pry the bottom off.But I had to.Why all the clips when they have that many screws?That's what I would like to know!Maybe so you will break it,and buy a new one?Or send it to them to be fixed?I have a V6000 manual that said to remove the power button panel,you remove two screws,but there was actually three.The manual helps,but sometimes they do have mistakes.Here is the link to the manual.I hope this helps.If you have any questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!
