This is a photo guide for your exact problem Not exactly easy but if you or a friend is skilled at disassembly/soldering... the part is about $10.00 on eBay just look for averatec 3200 dc jack. Needless to say if you do not feel comfortable doing this sort of thing take it to a local repair shop

How do i replace to charging coil on my laptop


You Probably need to replace the DC Power Jack which is where the laptop plugs into the computer. If it is loose then it is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see ifthe little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptopapart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so youwill have to desolder the old and solder a new one.
Make sure your power cord is good. Some powercords have a light on the adapter portion that lights up when plugged in.

Im plugged in to the battery charger and the computer is not recognizing the charger and the light on the charger is not on? What could the problem be and how can i fix it?


It sounds like the adaptor has failed and needs to be replaced. However on some models you can get the same thing if the power jack it plug into on the laptop is loose. If you put the plug into the jack and then gently move it it side to side (very gently we don;t want to make a new problem) it should not move to the sides and should be fairly snug. If you do this with the adaptor plugged in if the jack is loose you may find just the spot where it works again and may see the lights blink on. If thats happens the jack needs to be replaced.

You really need to check the adaptor before getting a new one. For this you need to use a voltmeter. The meter will show or should show a number higher than what the rating is on the label. Thats normal. If it doesn't then replace it.

Finally some models will not run with a bad battery. They may run without it but not with a bad one.If it does anything at all with the battery then it should be good but needing a charge. If its over say 1.5 to 2 years old and you either use it a lot on the battery or not at all (always on the charger) then it may need replacing.

You just need to rule out what the cause it. Start with the plug, then the adaptor. The battery is the culprit when everything else works.

Will not work with ac power adaptor but does with


Did you wiggle it a bit when plugged in? You can't tell from looking on the outside if the plug is fine because it goes bad inside where it is soldered. This is a very common problem, and have fixed many laptops with the same problem. All of them had a bad solder connection inside. Did you dtermine the plug was fine by plugging another ac adapter to your laptop or you just checked it visually? Hit me up I will solve this one for you.

Why won't my lap top stay on ac adaptor?


you posibly have a SHORT in the wire for AC power- try another power adaptor./ the other cause could be a bad power jack on the laptop- not an easy fix.

My laptop isn't charging. I think the chargin port is lose. Is this a common problem? ANy fixes?


There are 2 common problems that end up with this.

1. Battery goes bad
2. Were ac plugs into unit becomes loose/damaged

There is no easy way to fix the connector is must be replaced by a laptop specialist and can get expensive. There are 4-6 connections holding the part to the motherboard and your looking at about 1/2 hour to 1 to just take the unit apart. Part general costs 12-30 bucks based on make and model. We have seen many of these come into our shop.

Dell Inspiron 1505; Battery does not charge; DC jack is loose..


The loose connection for the AC adapter means the motherboard needs to be replaced or the AC adapter jack on the motherboard needs to be replaced. (With Labor, it is about the same cost to buy a new motherboard as it is to have the old one fixed)

Motherboards are available on EBay for around $100

Ac adapter


In some laptops the power socket (DC jack) is soldered to the motherboard.
If the battery stops charging when you wiggle the power plug inside the jack, either you have a bad power adapter (test it with a voltmeter) or the power jack is broken or loose.
If the power jack is not broken but loose (not making good contact with the motherboard) you can resolder the old jack without replacing it with a new one.
The laptop would have to be taken apart and the DC connector resoldered.
This would cost $75 - $100. Enter your zip code in the box on the right hand side of the FixYa page to find someone close to you.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Compaq Presario 1200 won't charge battery


dear N9YK

you can follow this

If you have a loose connection where you plug in the power on your laptop, or it works intermittently, you could have a bad dc jack. Symptoms
  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection
  • Broken or cracked dc jack
  • Laptop won't charge but worked on battery
  • Power LED and battery LED flicker when the adapter tip is moved
  • Battery won't charge
  • Sparks come out the back of the laptop
Why does this happen?
  • Flaw in manufacturer designs
  • Use of universal or non-original ac adapter
  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the ac adapter
  • Tripping on or pulling the ac adapter cord
or you can check your dc amper in your adaptor

oke



thx
