Faulty dc power jack

I was wondering how much it would be approximately to replace my dc power jack. It keeps flickering from battery to ac adapter power, and only stays charging if I create a lot of tension on the ac adpater cord. I have a gateway mx6440.
Thanks

AC adapter 4750z


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

If you need to buy a new laptop charger, the following to adapters are for your reference:

I replace my ac power supply for my dell laptop inspiron 9100 but when connect the power supply to the laptop it keeps on blinking and the laptop does not power on


If you can , try charging the battery in another system and then try to power the laptop up with the charged battery.
If the unit will run on a charged battery, then there's a problem in the charging circuit, and you'll have to check all the components in that area.
If it doesn't, then there's a problem elsewhere on the motherboard, possibly in the DC/DC converter circuit.
Check for shorted SMT MOSFETs and blown or failing capacitors.
If you aren't tech savvy, this is not an undertaking for the inexperienced, and you may have to have the unit sent out for repair.
Most places don't do component level repair and will simply tell you that you need a new motherboard.
If you cannot find a service depot near you, you may want to consider going to www.supertech-IT.com and arrange to have the unit sent in.

Advent k200 laptop does not charge new battery


Hi,

Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.

1. Removed the battery.

2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.

3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.

4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

THE AC ADAPTOR SPARKS ELECTIRCTY WHEN PLUGD IN


Don't use it anymore. If your computer hasn't been ruined by the sparking electricity, then it will be if you continue to use that adapter. Where is it sparking from? If its sparking from the port on the computer, then your DC jack needs to be replaced. If its sparking from anywhere else on your adapter, then the adapter needs to be replaced as soon as possible.

Power problem


Check the port on the laptop where you plug in the adapter. Try to wiggle and see if you have a loose AC/DC input jack.
If yes, you need to have it repaired, unfortunately. If not, remove the battery then plug the adapter and see if you can see a light or if you can boot up the laptop.
You may try plugging it in on a different wall outlet.
Hope this helps.
