Question about Acer Aspire 55421462 Notebook
I deal with this problem often for my local clients. I used to disasseble and repair or replace the Dc Power Jacks but you have to remove the motherboard and know your soldering well to do so. Nowadays, I just send all laptops with this problem in to any one of several different repair vendors on eBay.
Go to eBay and in the search box type, Laptop DC Power Jack Repair. You'll find a host of reliable companies there and with the repair and shipping you should expect to pay around 80 to 100 dollars. If you can find someone locally you trust to do the replacement for less then take that route.
