Broken DC jack Acer Aspire 3100 series, 3102 laptop

The dc jack shattered on my laptop. It is currently in a computer repair shop, but he and I have exhausted all avenues to find this jack. No one online seems to have it. One place shipped us one with a part # of AC 91316, but it wasn't the correct one. May have to replace the motherboard, but haven't been able to locate one of those either. I purchased this laptop new just a little over a year ago. Acer has been no help since it is out of the warranty and we mistakenly thought we had purchased an extended warranty.

Acer Aspire E1-571-6650 would not charge. Problem thought to be DC Jack (AC Adapter would not fix and DC Jack seemed loose). Had the same problem a year ago in July and it was fixed. Original charger...


Difficult to comment but if a laptop comes in for me to repair and the hinge is broken and maybe cabinet damage, I would offer to replace the broken parts and replace the DC jack, if it was faulty. It is part of the service but may not be cheap to repair!
Hinges usually become loose and very rarely break.
Did the laptop work on the power supply but not on battery?

Broken dc jack on acer 3003ln


If the internal DC Power Jack is loose, you will have totake the laptop apart to repair it. The DC Power Jack is on themotherboard and most times it is soldered to the motherboard. That meansyou will have to desolder the old one and solder a new one in it's place. Sometimes the dc power jack sits in a slot between the bottom case and palmrestwhich hold it in place and has a cable harness that plugs into the motherboard.

I have an Acer Aspire One and when I plug the charger in I have to spin it or wiggle it or both to get the battery to charge. Once I have it in position it generally stays on charge, but if the cable is...


It could be either one Sarah.

The AC adapter's (Charger) cable, or the DC Power Jack where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop.

This is an example of the DC Power Jack not installed,

http://www.laptopjacks.com/view_part/Acer-Aspire-ONE-AOA150-ZG5-DC-Power-Jack-AC351816.html

(You can click on the three views of the jack to enlarge)

1) Check the DC Power Jack to see if it's in good repair.

Battery removed use a small flat tipped screwdriver, and Gently see if you can move the Center Pin around in the jack.
See if the Center Pin will move side to side a small amount. There is supposed to be No perceptible movement.

Referring back to the closeup photos of the DC Power Jack, the flat blade-like prongs are upside down, in relation to how the jack sits on the motherboard.

The flat prongs go down through the motherboard, and are soldered to the motherboard.
If the center pin of the jack is stationary, but the jack as a unit moves around, one or more solder joints, (Connections) for the flat prongs may be cracked.

The repair consists of completely disassembling the laptop, removing the broken DC Power Jack, and installing a new one.

(Click on the blue - One - in Aspire One.
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name (One) it may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

(Took 12 seconds just now for full download)

No perceptible movement of the DC Power Jack? Suspect the cable of the AC adapter right near it's plug. (Plug that plugs into the DC Power Jack)

Acer 6530 has problem with power connector on the laptop, the cord and power supply work fine. the connector is loose and is not working, how do i replce it?


It's called a the DC Jack, and you would have to take the laptop completely apart so you can get to the motherboard then De solder the old jack from the motherboard then solder the new jack on the motherboard. Finally you will have to re-assemble the laptop. If you are not comfortable doing this than I suggest you take it to a local repair shop for repairs.

The internal ac connection on my Acer aspire 3000 is bad, i this a costly fix? Who can do this that is reputable?


Your AC adapter, (Charger), converts Alternating Current to Direct Current, (DC)
[A flashlight battery, and your laptop battery are examples of stored DC electricity]

The port on your laptop where you plug your AC adapter into, is the DC Power Jack.

Price to replace this jack? Depends on where you take it to have it fixed, and what it is in.
Average is $90 to $150.
The tech has to completely disassemble the laptop, all the way down to just the motherboard in hand. Then desolder, and remove the old DC Power Jack, and solder a new one in. Now the laptop is reassembled.

It could be that solder joint/s have cracked, and just need re-soldering.
Less cost.
Or, it could be that the entire motherboard needs to be replaced, because the motherboard design was/is bad in the first place.
More cost.

Who can do this that is reputable? I'll put my money on a small 'Mom and Pop' computer repair shop, every time! Their advertising is largely by word of mouth, and that is by satisfied customers!

DC input jack broken


Yes it's not usually something that can be repaired at home. Your chances are better if the jack just seems loose and not actually broken, however replacing it is better. I work for a Laptop Repair Shop in NYC and we deal with this issue frequently.

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.
