Use epoxy glue to fasten the socket to the board. I assume that you have a proper soldering iron (small grounded tip, not a soldering gun), and know how to use it. After the epoxy has cured, trace the damaged tracks back to another solder connection, then solder an insulated (about #24 or #26) wire to that point and to the appropriate connection on the power jack. There should be a maximum of three wires to install. If you make the proper connections, it should work as before. Good luck!

Problem with the Acer Aspire 3690 (LX.AFL0J.044) PC Notebook no sound on tv i have connected via s video and rca i have picture but no sound


The rca lead only connects the video, you need to also use an audio cable from the earphone socket to the audio in on the tv.

Power supply connector on the on board broke off


Well it depends on how much damage is/has been done. I often fix damage such as this. You can often effect a repair by bridging the broken PCB by soldering, wire bridges over them, sometimes I have even totally removed broken pwr socket and soldered the power wires directly into place, if a new socket can't be obtained. Make sure you trace out whats what though first draw it out. Remember sometimes, there is sort of a switch in the pwr socket that cuts battery in & out. So, as long as you can get a Positive connection & then any earth connection will do for the Minus. Then it should work... Be Careful.

Damaged keycap - aspire 3690


If you look very carefully - you should see 'something like' an H shaped piece of plastic that holds the key in place - this controls the position.
You need to prize the legs that meet with the key away from the centre (carefully) using 2off small jewel screw drivers (maybe 2 off paper clips)
