Motorola V710 cell pone

Could be a few different things. 1)LCD is bad and needs replaced. 2)Flex cable is bad and needs replaced. 3)One of the flex connectors has gone bad and needs reflowed or replaced. Either way this is not a real easy phone to disassemble. Your best bet would be to take it to a repair facility and have them find the problem and quote a price. Or if you can acquire replacement parts I can do my best to help w/ disassembly, which like I mentioned above its not the easiest phone to assemble/disassemble. Good luck.

How can I change or repair the DC Jack on an IBM ThinkPad T42?

You have to completely disassemble the whole laptop in order to get to the motherboard & actually remove the original soldering to remove the DC power jack from the motherboard. One thing you need is the right tools (Screwdriver) and the soldering gun.

Google & research a guide for disassembling your IBM Thinkpad T42

Charger port works kinda messes up too often

Hi Kentucky664
Sounds like you have a broken pin or loose jack housing solder joints in your DC power jack. This is a very common problem with laptops of all makes and models of laptops.
the majority of laptop DC power jacks are soldered directly to the motherboard, and are not easy for first timers to replace.
Any repairs that you attempt to do yourself are at your own risk, but ive tried to lay this out as easy as possible so you can see what you are in store for.
You are in luck with this if you want to repair this yourself. it can be done, but if you have never disassembled a laptop before i would recommend highly that you familiarize yourself with the
HP Dv9000 service manual
found here

and with this guided tutorial of disassembly. Just so that you will see what is involved.

Critical-----Proper antistatic measures are strongly advised. Touching the motherboard anywhere but the corners could cause a static discharge, destroying your motherboard.Its also highly advisable to wear a grounding strap while working on this.
Things will come apart, but sometimes it takes patience.

If you still feel up to this after looking over the tutorial, and looking through disassembly section of the service manual, then ive rounded up a short list of parts

if you want the entire assembly, this is the best route to go, unless you enjoy soldering and saving a few $$
This is a drop in replacement for your defective power assembly.

Used $12.99+ $4.73 shipping
Refurbished $23.95+shipping
New around $50-$70 depending on source

On another note, a qualified repair shop that services laptops can do the repair for you for between $100-$150. This includes the replacement DC power jack, but not the power assembly that ive listed. A shop will just use your existing power board and wiring. Ive done replacements on a good number of these and they are not as bad to do as the majority of other notebooks.

Hope this helps, and if i've helped you, please dont forget to take the time to rate.

Toshiba dc connector


If the laptop still works, then there would be no need to replace the motherboard. The DC jack is replaceable/repairable. What would be more challenging is the disassembly and eventual exposing of the bottom part of the circuitry where the DC jack is soldered into. Often the DC jack would have at least 2 solder point (not more than 3). This might interest you.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Faulty DC power connector

First pulling a machine apart takes time and careful disassembly - it is easy to snap off fragile plastic panels or rip cables and replacement parts can easily cost as much as paying someone to disassemble it for you. Usually a jack repair is $100-$150 depending on the shop.

Toshiba's are a multilayered setup - You have to remove all the screws from the bottom (note that they are labeled by screw length next to each hole - do NOT put the wrong length in when reassembling!!) Make sure to remove the hard drive and ram cover and check for screws there are well.

After all the screws are out of the bottom, remove the panel above the keyboard. Remove the keyboard and all the screws under the keyboard. Then you can get at the motherboard and power jack.

You will probably have to remove the motherboard to replace the jack - Usually the mounting screws for the motherboard are not so clearly labeled - i mark the holes with a sharpie when pulling a mainboard.

Good luck!
