Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, I am in the position of having satellite 4300 with completely broken dc jack..can of course get new part but how easy/hard is it to refit?..take it the pins are soldered in....is it possible to bypass jack or do I have to brush up on my desolering/soldering skills?/ Thanks..Mike
Not the simplist of tasks. especially on a laptop.
it,s a complete disasembly of the laptop itself, right down to barebones. the jacks themselves are very well soldered to the boards. usually 2-4 pins. i,ve done a couple myself on vaios.
i,d suggest a good quality desolder pump. and a small roll of soder-wick. be very carefull not to overheat any of the pins. and gentle pressure when lifting away the old one from the board. as you can bend/warp the motherboard. use a good quality solder and a small amount of flux, to resolder the joints. you seem a competant guy, and you should,nt have many problems.
