Dc jack Thank you. My husband actually has 2 degrees in computers so he will be doing the work. (Not ME!) Like I said I was trying to get a headstart & get an idea of the price. I was trying to find out if it was a $10 fix or a $100 fix. Thanks!

The power supply cord is very loose and loses connection

Hello kathywadman:
If this is for a laptop it is probably not the cord but the power jack that it plugs into. But I have had a cord go bad at the point that it connects to the plug. Look on the internet and you might find a tutorial on how to fix your DC jack on your laptop. And EBay is your friend when you need to buy the jack.

If this helps don't forget to give the OLE thumbs up a click.

There is a problem with connection between my powercord and where it plugs into my computer. I have to wiggle the cord around in order for the computer to recognize that it's plugged in. What can I do to...

If this is a PC, I suspect that your power supply needs replacing. If this is a laptop, then it's likely that the DC jack has popped loose and is no longer soldered to the motherboard the way it should be. That's a pretty common issue with laptops - it has happened to me twice. If that's the case, then you'll need to send the laptop off for repair - it isn't the kind of thing you can fix easily yourself. There are several services that can repair your laptop DC jack for $99-$125 or so, plus shipping, including the manufacturer's authorized repair service. Another place you can try is dropping into any big-box electronic store, such as Best Buy, that offers repair services, they can diagnose the issue quickly and manage the repair for you. Hope this helps!

I need to replace a dc jack and get a power adaptor that fits it correctly so that I do not keep breaking the dc jack what do i do

Now, I have no idea on what we are working.
If it is a motherboard, then you need to order the correct plug replacement, and then study and compare where it goes, and make absolutely sure you use a clean solder gun of possibly 30 watts. Use the very small solder available at most stores like Radio Shack.
If you never soldered anything, then this is not a job you want to do. Get some help from someone who has done work of this type.
Because, if you do not do it right, you can destroy the board.

Because the circuit boards on anything are delicate, and cannot take too much heat, you have to know what the boundaries are and how to handle a project like this.

Intermittent power connection

I am guessing this is a laptop.

If so, the DC jack on the laptop is bad. The connection between the jack and the motherboard gets loose, or the center pin gets loose. The only fix for this is a jack replacement. It takes soldering skills. You can get it repaired for $100-200 bucks, depending on the shop.

If you have soldering and electronic skills you can do it yourself, but it is tricky if you have never done it.

The only other option is possibly the power cord is bad at the end, where there might be a bend. Sometimes both the power cord and Jack are bad.

Wet Dell XPS M1210

I would try cleaning the terminals on the battery and the computer with an old toothbrush and simple green or other multi-purpose cleaner, that doesn't leave residue.
