Question about Toshiba Satellite P15-S479 Notebook
The DC-IN Power Pin has detached from the port and lodged itself inside the adaptor. Is there anyway to fix this? Or will I need a new laptop? Thank you for your help.

The job isn't that tough really. . . . Especially considering the price most shops get to do the repair. Just take it slow and use a digital camera to document your dis-assembly. The pictures will help when you go to re-assemble the computer. When you get it fixed, get a CRD (Cable Retention Device) to take the strain off the poorly designed power pin.

Just remember, take it slow when you start the dis-assembly process.
