Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
Dell Inspiron 2200 Laptop DC power pin connector loose, causing screen to go bright & dim. Would like to know if possible to change/repair connecter without going to repair shop? Live in UK
It seems the Dell Inspiron 2200 DC in power jack connector coming loose is a common problem with this laptop, unfortunately. If you want to try it yourself, grab a copy of the service manual which will guide you through the process of taking it apart (as well as putting it back together). Once you have the motherboard out, check the solder points on the bottom of the circuit board. On one I worked on, there was practically no solder left, but the jack itself was solid. Be careful with the soldering process, because there's an RV1 component too close to the power jack's pins and you can easily dislodge it if your soldering iron / tool isn't precise enough. If things go well, and the solder goes where it's supposed to, that should fix it.
Some people replace the jack entirely - a call you'll have to make yourself.

Hi, the power jack must be removed by a strip out and de solder of jack and a new one fitted. I was lucky a guy took £30 for the job.

Not that hard to do the repairs yourself.....The pin assembly is usually available on the web for $ 10-$20. Take your time taking the unit apart, take notes on the dis-assembly so when you go to re-assemble the unit you know what goes where. Once you get it fixed you might think about getting a cable retention device to keep the problem from re-occurring.
