Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
My aspire 3680 is just over a year and the power jack on the board is broken.
Am I correct to say that this is a common problem? My laptop is out of manufacturer's warranty by few days and idea where I can purchase this part? Acer's web site is not user friendly because their search engne doesn't take me to their parts website
Your model has a power jack that is soldered to the mainboard.
Yes, this is a common problem with a lot of notebooks. It usually happens when someone walks by and trips on the power wire and pulls the notebook off the desk / table and onto the floor.
Unless you're comfortable with taking it apart, and good with a soldering iron, you should take it to a repair shop.
If you ARE comfortable with doing so, the power jack can be purchased from several suppliers on Ebay, for about $12 including shipping. Just do a search for "aspire 3680 jack" and you will see them.
PS: Most shops charge $100-$150 to replace the jack.
