It's not that hard to fix it yourself if your mechanically inclined. The part is under $10. It took me three hours to fix my first one, about an hour for the second one. I did add a cable retention device
to both systems when I finished. No more problems on either system. I got mine here.

Here's a video about the product. . . .

The pin can either be soldered back if you have the equipment and its not damaged or you can buy a replacement pin to solder in. It's not that easy so if your not competent then it might be worth the cost to have it repaired professionally - costs about £100 so depends on the value of the laptop

Whats broken in charging connector?


Normally when you have a broken charging connector on a laptop. It boils down to either a bad power supply. Or a broken port on the laptop itself. If you have a voltmetor you can test the power supply. If it is dead replaced it. If it is on the laptop itselp very very few people will take the time to fix it. time for a new laptop. Good luck.

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.

This is a common complaint of the wire shorting inside, please go to my tips page so that this particular complaint was reviewed with some tips.
The short within the wire cuts off the adaptor votlage as it is in protect mode-- not a failure of the adaptor. so have the wire **** off and connected or use a new pin at the end.

Aspire 3680 Won't charge


Hello,

Have you tested the A/C to be charging correctly ? Have you confirmed that at the back of your laptop where you plug the power in that the pin is not bend and not missing or broken or pushed in ?

If your new battery and the old battery give you exactly the same issue, then most likely your A/C power adapter or cable OR the physical port on your laptop is broken and needs to be replaced.

Dc jack broken


You cannot charge fhe laptop via the USB port, you can charge a USB device from the USB port but not the other wat around.
You can get the power connect on the laptop repaired and then it will power the laptop and charge the battery.
