Its not something the average person would try.
You need to open the laptop, Un solder the existing power socket, and then resolder the new power jack, you may only need to resolder the old power socket.
You may need access to to underside of the motherboard, so you may have to fully remove it.
If you make one mistake with the soldering iron, you could completely destroy it.
Here is a step by step guide to replace it, if you do wish to try.

Hi there,

I'm a laptop repair specialist. The DC Power Jack is soldered to the motherboard. While I am able to do this repair I no longer take the trouble because there are many vendors on eBay who perform the service for half, or less than half, of what I'd have to charge a customer.

Go to eBay and in the search window type in "Laptop DC Power Jack Repair". You will be re-directed to a page with many choices of vendors where you simply send them the laptop and they return it repaired. You should expect to pay between about $85 to $125 including all shipping.

Take care,

TheSelkie

Hello my laptop t41 power is not even flash but the adapter is working,am technician and i have troubleshoot allot.


I concur with what Diegotech stated.

To iterate further;

1) The DC Power Jack (DC IN), may have cracked solder joint/s on the motherboard connector, (Female), where the DC Power Jack plugs in.

Resolder

2) The DC Power Jack may be broken.
Center Pin mount, and/or body of DC Power Jack, and/or Outer Shell mount.

Replace DC Power Jack.

3) Wires from the DC Power jack plug to the female connector on the motherboard, may be bad.

Replace DC Power Jack.

Battery not charging !!!. replacement of new batter also has the same problem. and old batter suddenly started charging by meddling with the cable for once. and then again the same problem. would it be...


Looks like either the power jack of your adapter is experiencing a bad connection. Check if the power adapter's cable near the jack which plugs into the laptop is not severely bent.If this is the case, then you will need to replace the power adapter.

If this is not the case, check the DC socket where you plug the power jack into the laptop. This socket might be loose or broken. If this turns out to be the case, then your laptop needs to be disassembled in order to re-solder or replace this socket, depending on its condition.

How do I replace fujitsu 2727 power socket


Get it fixed by going to jackfix.com , replacing the dc power jack requires taking apart the entire laptop, then removing the motherboard, and finally desoldering the power socket, and resoldering the new jack, and putting everything back together, its no job for a beginner. Not being rude at all, but if you have to ask how, dont attempt. http://www.jackfix.com , they have replaced many power jacks for my laptops, as well as my companies, they give a lifetime warranty, and will ship the laptop back to you within 24hrs. believe me, I have tried different companies, and they are def best.

Power socket is loose


dc jack socket for Sony VAIO VGN-FW is very easy to loose, I think you can replace the cabled dc jack, no solder work, plug in and work, see this reference page: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-vgnfw-series-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2647.html
the above item is with ground cable, it is known that sony FW uses both harnesses with or without ground cable, you can cut the ground cable directly if your laptop does not use it, or order from this page for the one without ground cable: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-07300012492a-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2782.html
hope this can help you

Power socket for sony vaio is broken how do I


On a Sony, many times the power socket is a separate piece that can be replaced. Unlike many laptop motherboards, these power sockets are a separate item the plug into the motherboard. \

Bad news is you have to dissassemble the computer to get at it.

Hi i asked for my ibm t40 laptop dc jack to be replaced and i have looked in my profile but all i can see is dc jack for a printer my problem is changing the dc jack on my ibm t40 LAPTOP


Problem with power socket on the laptop, it may caused by a dry solder joint and needs to be resoldered or the power socket may be faulty and needs to be replaced. Either way to fix this, it requires the laptop to be dismantled to get at this power socket. Get a quote to repair, as it could cost a few dollars.
If it is a faulty cord/plug on the power adapter, this can be checked with a multi-meter. When you connect the multi-meter probes to the power plug the voltage should be steady and the reading should be slightly higher then the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the power adapter. If the voltages fluctuates as you wriggle the plug then you have a broken wire in the plug. Replacing the plug would not cost much.
