Re: Power port

No, you don't need a new motherboard.

Unless you're comfortable with taking the laptop apart down to the motherboard, and soldering in a new power jack, take it to a repair shop.

Packard bell tj65 screen problem

Try connecting a standard PC monitor to the laptop via the VGA port. Do you still get the same problems on the external screen? If so, there is a motherboard fault relating to the Video output. If your laptop uses the NVidia chipset, this is probably the fault as some older laptops did suffer from this.
If you dont get the fault then its probably one of these:
1) Screen issue
2) The Screen cable that allows the video data to go from the motherboard to the screen

Hope this helps

Hi, There is a possibility of problems in:
  1. the adapter that you are using might be defective
  2. or the port for the power is not working
  3. or the battery fault issue
What you can do is to try another outlet to see if the outlet itself is the cause. Cheers!!

Burnt out power board


I sympathize with your problem, but I think you are knocking at the wrong door. You should contact your local Packard Bell dealer.

My packard bell has stoped charging

If your laptop has stopped charging and you've already replaced the AC adaptor, then most likely it's either the battery itself or the power port on your laptop. If the battery was fine up to that point then it's probably not the battery. To replace the power port can sometimes involve soldering the new port onto the motherboard of your laptop so it's usually best left to a professional. The port you can usually find on ebay. I've replaced a few that is just a small power board that plugs into the mainboard but other have to be soldered. It's not really hard to do, but it involves dismantling the whole laptop to gain access to the motherboard and sometimes requires soldering. Sometimes its very obvious and you can tell by trying to move the metal pin in the center of the plug on your laptop where it plugs in. If the center prong moves then it has become detached and must be replaced. If not it could also be a connection problem due to corossion. Without pulling it apart and looking at it, it can be hard to tell. Deptending on the extent of the work, it can cost from 50.00 - 200.00. I hope this helps.
