It's not that hard to fix yourself. . . . Just take your time when you disassemble the system. And take pictures along the way so when it's time to reassemble it you have records of what went where. If you aren't mechanically inclined and decide to have one of the shops repair it I do suggest a AC cable retention device like the one they mention in this video.

From what you described, it looks as though the jack wher the AC adpter plugs in has come loose. You'll need to have it soldered back on to the motherboard. We provide a nationwide service for fixing these types of problems. We charge a flat fee of $89.00 which includes re-soldering the part back on and express return shipping. We are licensed and insured.

Power connections were u put the power cord connected it won't charge the connection in the tablet were power cord goes in its broken can it be fix

There is a good chance it can be fixed, you would need to search for the replacement part you need and simply replace the needed part, I have a Nexus 7 1st gen and I am in need of a new charging port myself but was able to make it work by opening it up and pinch the piece back together til I get a new part. Often times the connection will be just loose and you can do that but other times the pins are warn down.

Acer 4720Z not charging, port is not damaged neither pin

Check if the led indicator is on, when you connect your adapter to power outlet. It may simply be loose connection between the adapter and connecting cord.

If possible, borrow adapter of same make and model from someone (maybe a friend who owns the same laptop) to ensure, that the port is not damaged.

If the port is all good, I suggest you get your adapter replaced, as repairing it is not worth the hassle.

I have to wiggle the wire plug at the laptop side and it intermittently charges, replaced the charge cord did not seem to help. If it starts to charge cant touch screen or move computer or it will stop...

The charging cord isn't the problem here. I've seen this a few times on laptops, and the fix isn't achievable by anyone other than an expert. The problem is the power socket that's soldered to the motherboard is loose (when you plug the charging cord into the computer, you're actually plugging it into the power socket attached to the motherboard). To fix it requires that socket to be re-soldered to the motherboard. I recommend consulting a professional computer repairman.

My laptop turn off itself while loading

You may have a loose DC jack:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it's still under warranty, it would be fixed at no charge to you.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

My gateway netbook wont charge, they sent me a new battery but again it will not charge, what could be wrong?


The problem might be either from the charger or from the laptop.

To confirm and repair if it is the charger, all you have to do is to plug the charger on another laptop to see if it will charge, if it does not charge, then you know the fault is from the charger, and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one, before you replace it, try to connect another power cord to the charger, because sometimes the power cord might have been burnt, that have happened to me twice and replacing the power cord solved the problem. But if replacing the power cord does not help, then you need to change the power cord.

To confirm and repair if it is the laptop, plug in a new charger to the laptop, if it does not charge, then you need to understand that the charging port of the laptop is faulty and needs to be replaced, have a repairman replace the charging port for you.

Take care and good luck

Dell Latitude D800 Wont Power Up

Check the status of the battery directly from the battery. Turn the laptop over and on the batter is an battery indicator button and lights to tell you if it's charged. If it is charged then you have an problem internally. Wiggle the tip of the power cord at the laptop connection to see if it is loose, if it is then you have an loose connection on the motherboard which can be fixed by an experienced tech that can solder or the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Won't charge

The plug in terminal that is soldered to a board inside the laptop has a loose solder connection. This procedure require opening the laptop and some soldering iron, and some solder. If you are not confident in doing this don't try it cuz you can mess up your laptop forever.

I can't actually solve this, but I have to wiggle my cord around to get it to "connect". I'm pretty sure my jack is loose, but haven't opened it up yet to check. This website looks like it has a promising solution on a similar laptop:

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 (:
