I finally managed to remove the cover and solder the broken wire. Works fine exept the keyboard, but that is a result of old soda spill. This computer has been used with external keyboard for some months. I cleaned the keyboard with luke warm water and placed it for dry for 36 hours, but there are still som keys that dont work and Fn seems to be constantly on.

I have a ibm t60 laptop. The power cotd tests good. But the battery wont charge and the AC power light does not come on.

I see this same thing often, when people push in the power plug too hard, jostle the laptop around alot or even tried to force the wrong plug into the port---it sounds like you may have broken the solder on the mother board on the power inlet, There are 4, 6 or 8 solder spots on most power inlets, you may have broken one or more of them loose---take it to the shop if you are not handy with a screw driver and a soldering pen...

Socket of my laptop has broken where we connect our power supply..still we can charge it if we connect through some angles....if we need 2 change the whole board..or can replace the socket much...

1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

Broken dc power socket

In the case of your laptop, the dc jack is connected to the motherboard by a cable and there is no soldering that needs to be done. You just have to disassemble the laptop and replace the cable. Below is the link to Ebay where they have one listed.

Below is the link to the service manual for the procedure.

Power supply connector on the on board broke off

Well it depends on how much damage is/has been done. I often fix damage such as this. You can often effect a repair by bridging the broken PCB by soldering, wire bridges over them, sometimes I have even totally removed broken pwr socket and soldered the power wires directly into place, if a new socket can't be obtained. Make sure you trace out whats what though first draw it out. Remember sometimes, there is sort of a switch in the pwr socket that cuts battery in & out. So, as long as you can get a Positive connection & then any earth connection will do for the Minus. Then it should work... Be Careful.

Charger wont charge not sure if the problems with the charger or the bit socket on the computer you plug into,prior to today if you wiggled the charger bit it charged now it wont

I too had the same problem and posted my query on 4th September 2009 (yesterday) after I had tried a number of other things including replacing the battery.
I received a prompt response from joegoldman only a few minutes after posting the query. My sincere thanks to this person's excellent instructions I managed to dismantle my laptop and fix it on the same day.
It was indeed the dry joints causing the problem. I also had to apply some solder at the back of the power socket to stop the slight wobble of the pin on the power socket to prevent it from happening again. I also had to remove the hard drive and its base which was screwed on to the back panel through the mother board.
I suggest you too try out Joe Goldman's solution , which I am pasting here for your reference. Good luck. If I can be of any further help to you please let me know:

"First thing is to remove the top bezel. This is the piece of plastic between the keyboard and the display. Since you have removed all the bottom screws, you should be able to pop the bezel off by inserting the tip of a small flathead screwdriver under one of the plastic hinge covers. Check the back of the hinge covers for screws and remove any you see first. Once the bezel is off, remove the screws securing the keyboard and remove the keyboard. Be careful with the keyboard ribbon cable and the connector for it, they are fragile. Flip it over and remove any bottom panels. Disconnect the wireless antenna cables from the wireless card (usually black and white). Flip it over again. Snake the wireless antenna cables up through to the top and disconnect the other thicker cable (video and power) from the mainboard. Now you need to remove the display. After the display is off, remove the optical (dvd) drive. Remove any case screws you see from under where the keyboard was. You should be able to get it apart now. Be VERY mindful of connector wires/ribbons as you take it apart.

When soldering the joints (do em all on the power jack) be careful not to heat up the area too much as there are often very sensitive fuses close to the power jack. Do the joints quickly and do not use an excessive amount of solder. After you solder it, dry-fit the laptop back together and test it. If it's good, lay a small bead of hot glue around the base of the dc power jack to reinforce it."

The dc power plug is broken

Is the connector on the power adapter that plugs into the laptop?
If so, this is an easy repair, purchase a new connector from electronics parts shop, cut off the old connector and solder the new one on the end of the cable. MAKE SURE YOU SOLDER THE CONNECTIONS TO GIVE THE CORRECT POLARITY ON THE CONNECTOR, OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE LAPTOP.

If the power socket on the laptop is faulty, this repair is more difficult. The socket may only need resoldering on the motherboard or in the worst case a new socket replacement. Either way the laptop need to be dismantled to get at the power socket.

If you don't feel you can handle this, get it done by a computer repair shop or a techo friend.

How to remove the back off my smasung x05 laptop

You are looking at a real job here. The socket is soldered to the motherboard. You will have to completely disassemble the laptop and de-solder the DC socket and re-solder it. Not a job for the faint of heart, not to mention someone without real soldering skill.
I can't tell you the actual steps, but you'll have to unscrew the screws in the bottom of the case, remove the bezel that covers the display hinges, remove the keyboard, display, the palm rest, and then remove the motherboard.
FYI, the palm rest is held to the base by little plastic catches--so you have to be really careful when using a screwdriver to separate the two plastic pieces.

The connection where you plug in the power on my compact presario R3000 laptop is broken. The female part that you plug into is loose and probably broken away from the solder on the mother board it self. I...

Before you pull apart your laptop, check the male connector and power cord of the adapter, check it with a multimeter and or plug it into another Compaq. You could have a broken wire in the power cord, it could save you a lot of work.

To pull apart the laptop, remove the battery, hard drive and CD drive first.
Then remove all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, plus the screws on the back that holds the LCD's hinge to the laptop base.
Take a note of where the screws come from, some may be shorter that others.
The remove the keyboard (the screws should already been removed from the bottom of the laptop).
Carefully remove the plastic cover next to the base of the LCD screen, This may also cover the hinges, if necessary fold the screen flat to enable you to carefully pry this cover up and off.
The plastic top cover is clip fastened to the bottom of the case, carefully prize apart from one side and gradually work around the other sides.
You can now remove the LCD, there are two connects attached to the motherboard, unclip these.
The motherboard is under the keyboard and plastic top cover, there are screws securing it to the plastic base, remove these and you should be able to free it from the base.
Now you can solder/fix the power connector.
I suggest you use a temperature controlled soldering iron.

Don't use too much force, you might crack the plastic parts.
Best of luck and have fun.
