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

The battery cannot charge after connecting to a power source


Take out of your battery, then plug in your ac adapter, see if it works, if no, then you have a faulty ac adapter, you need to replace it; and if yes, then you adapter is ok, the battery or dc jack may be broken.

Advent N270 netbook will not charge. Orange light comes on initially then goes off. Also when I wiggle the plug into the laptop the light flashes on and intermittently.


It sounds like either a bad connection on the motherboard or a broken wire in the adapter making intermittent connection.

1. With the power adapter disconnected, do you have a power light? This would indicate the adapter is good and the plug is questionable.

2. Check your power adapter output with a multi-meter.(be sure to wiggle the wires around) If the power fluctuates, replace the plug.

3. If the power is solid, replace the motherboard connector.

Laptop won't a hold charge when plugged in


Remove the Laptops Battery, Plug in AC Adapter... Is it able to Stay Powered On?? Slightly wiggle the Cord Near the plug end while plugged in... Does it still receive true power??? If So, Its Not Your AC Adapter Or Your DC Jack And You should Look into Replacing Your Laptops Battery...

If You Are Not Able To Power THe Laptop Using Just The AC Adapter When The Battery Is Removed, Then You First Need To Check/Test The AC Adapter using A Multimeter To See If You Have A Faulty Cord... If Cord Is Still Getting Correct Power Through To The Plug Tip .. Then You Will Need To Replace The DC Jack (the port where your AC Adapter Plug Plugs into on the laptop)

When you plug in the ac the power is intermittent and then will go into hibernation. With a full charge the battery will last about 30 min. If you unplug the battery the ac will work for a short time then...


Sounds like you have a loose DC jack or a faulty AC adapter. Try testing the adapter with a multimeter (or have a someone do it for you) to see if it's output is consistent. If you wiggle the ac adapter plug slightly when it is plugged into the jack on the notebook and this causes the power to go on-and-off (you should be able to tell by a power/charge led on the notebook) it is likely the DC jack if the AC adapter tests ok.

Prices to replace the jack vary. My shop does it for $65 labor + $15 for the jack on most non-apple notebooks.

No power at all for my Dell Latitude D505


Sounds Like From Your Description That You Need Your DC Jack Repaired/Replaced..

THe DC Jack Is the Port where Your AC Adapter Plug Plugs into on the laptop.... THis can be proprietary or non proprietary.... But Either way, the Old Faulty Jack Needs To Be Desoldered and Removed, THe Board Cleaned and a New DC Jack Soldered On.. You Will Then Be able To Power On Laptop With AC Charger and Will again Be Able To CHarge The Battery..
