Hi, the charging connector is broken, can it be replaced easily? If so , how do i get to it? the lap top is a TJ74-RB-050UK. Cheers

the dc jack (charging connector) can usually be bought for about 5 pounds or less from ebay. As far as fitting it goes it depends how confident you are. You will need to disassembel your laptop and remove the broken jack from the motherboard and then solder the new one on.

WOW, not such a easy fix. Lots of screws, tricky to open.
HP Laptop Power Jack eBay Make sure you get the HP model number off of the Jack socket - It will be labled. Good luck and have a great day. Jack shown may not be the same to your model of laptop.

Power cord connects but it is loose and will not charge without constant pressure. Is there a part I can buy or something to fix it

1/ Find a tape
2/ Wrap the tape around the plug 2 -3 rounds.
3/ Trim off the redundant tape, to make it neat (as in the picture)
4/ Plug in to see if it works
You may add more rounds if it is still loose.

The power supply cord is very loose and loses connection

Hello kathywadman:
If this is for a laptop it is probably not the cord but the power jack that it plugs into. But I have had a cord go bad at the point that it connects to the plug. Look on the internet and you might find a tutorial on how to fix your DC jack on your laptop. And EBay is your friend when you need to buy the jack.

If this helps don't forget to give the OLE thumbs up a click.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525, I purchased a new battery and a new charger and I still getting the message that it's plugged in but not charging. What could be the problem?

Your problem is that the power jack in your actual laptop is loose. it may not seem like it is but one of the 3 connections (positive, negitive, data) that hold the jack to the board broke. In this case its the data connection that tells the laptop what kind of adapter is plugged in, and dell laptops wont charge without knowing that. Solution- 1.Pay someone to replace the power jack 2. If you can solder, by a new jack (around $5) and disassemble the laptop and replace it yourself.

Loose battery cord

As a tech I have seen this too many times! But good luck use it while you can, but at one point it'll be a 40 minute battle to check get it on just to check your email... Hm.. 3 routes... Replace the power jack, buy one with a bad screen, no hard drive, or memory and use it to charge your battery (very inconvenient), or buy something else and be very careful with the jack

Good luck though

Intermittent power connection

I am guessing this is a laptop.

If so, the DC jack on the laptop is bad. The connection between the jack and the motherboard gets loose, or the center pin gets loose. The only fix for this is a jack replacement. It takes soldering skills. You can get it repaired for $100-200 bucks, depending on the shop.

If you have soldering and electronic skills you can do it yourself, but it is tricky if you have never done it.

The only other option is possibly the power cord is bad at the end, where there might be a bend. Sometimes both the power cord and Jack are bad.

There's not going to be a simple fix for this. First check the jack on the computer to see if it's loose or broken. If so then the jack will need replaced. If not, then the problem will be with a power management system chip on the motherboard. Either way, the motherboard is going to have to come out in order to fix the problem. Hope for the broken jack, this is repairable and will run approx $100. If it's the power management system, then the board will have to be replaced, and that's expensive.

Jack is loose where charger plugs in

This same thing is happening with my acer laptop. I sent it to the company about 3 months ago, and it happened again. I really need my laptop and cant take a month without it. I advise sending it in to be fixed to your laptop company.
Good luck (:
