Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook
The power cord to my Acer Aspire 3610 notebook was stepped on and subsequently pulled the laptop to the floor (a drop of about 18") and when I went to plug the unit back in the center pin for the DC power input had disappeared. It was not on the floor or in the coaxial plug from the dc power supply, so I suppose that it broke off and is now resident in the laptop somewhere. Any suggestions and is there an easy fix?
Part costs about $ 5-10 bucks.....labor to fix it ranges from $ 100 - $250. Problem is caused by jerking or tugging on the power cable too much. All laptops need a Cable Retention Device like the one in this video. . .

You will obviously have to replace the dc connector jack:
While unsoldering the old and resoldering a new jack is not difficult, it will void your warranty. Also a service manual for Acer products are very hard to find.

Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.
