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!

Bad power cord or bad connection on laptop?


Probably the DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer. Take a ink pen and stick the tip in where the power cord goes to see if it wiggles. If so, that's your problem.

My dad gave me his flat screen tv. I didnt find a powercord for i


The plug is the same plug that powers your desktop pc or monitor. I do not know if Radio Shack carries it but you will find it on E-bay. Type "pc power cord" when searching. I know this because I have same unit and my PC power cord are interchageable. Hope this helps.

Can't get power to my laptop.don't know if it's the laptop, or the powercord


Look for a friend around and trouble shoot swapping the power cords. But I believe it must be your power cord that should be replaced.

Do the trouble shooting before replacing.

Rate this, please.

When i insert the powercord the bright ness will get dim


Its not a problem, its how it was designed. With the power cord in it will be at full power so it will light brighter, When the power cord is out, it will be less bright as its using power from the battery , it will light dimmer to conserve power.

Replace Powercord


It has a cord relief to hold the cord in near the bottom, you will have to pull that out, the cord goes in there and comes out by the motor where the the wires connect. So you will have to pull the motor cover off to get to where they hook up to.

Screen blackout when using AC cord


I think you're goin to have to replace your" dc-jack" as it's called. This is where your AC cord plugs into your laptop.DC-jack problems are very common in laptops.Over time they wiggle loose just enough to mess up the solder connection on the motherboard.Try gently wiggling your AC cord where it plugs into your computer ,if you screen returns to normal when you wiggle the plug a certain way,then you've most likely got a bad dc-jack.
