Hi,

If the DC input port feels loose then thats the problem. If not then the cable might be damaged on the inside. Happens if the cable is rolled up and unrolled frequently :)

Acer aspire one charging port loose


If I recall this model line uses a fixed DC power jack directly soldered to the main board. When they become loose, you can visually inspect the jack itself (without the cord plugged in), and use a pen or probe to see of the center peg is excessively loose. The common result is the solder connections have been broken between the DC jack and the main board. Often the jack itself needs to be replaced (involving complete disassemble, de-soldering old jack, cleaning, repair PCB if needed, and re-solder new jack in place.
TIP - if it is not charging, remove battery, and gently put pressure from different angles with the power cord plugged in, and try to turn it on. If it turns on with pressure from a specific angle, it would indicate the DC jack is indeed loose, and likely needs to be replaced. It works becomes the pressure is making the electrical contact that has other wise been broken. ALSO, if it turns on easily, yet losses power at certain angles, its a similar issue.
TIP2 - If it still indeed charges regardless of the angle, and does not lose power, it may be a "Modular" DC jack, meaning the jack connects to the main board through a wire harness, and is less prone to breaking the electrical contacts, and the jack is simply loose inside it's retaining clips/slides. Minor disassembly and hot glue are quick fixes for this since usually the plastic clip/slide in the chassis have broke.

GOOD LUCK! :)

My dv2175ea power inlet faulty


Most power cord ports are soldered directly to the mother board. Open this one up and see if it is a separate part or not. If it is, you could probably just replace the small part, but my bet is that it would take an entire system board replacement.

My laptop charging port is not working problem. I have to wiggle it about and selotape it into place for the computer to charge. What do you think is the most likely cause the port its self or the charger?


I think it is because of the loose dc jack. So
You need to get the DC Power Jack Either Repaired or replaced...this is the "female" port where your AC Power cord plugs into.. To Repair the current DC Jack...First you'll need to look closely at the Positive posts to see that they are not broken.. If visibally ok.. then you can look at the Solder Connections.. they will need to first be Desoldered.. Cleaned, then Resoldered back in place....

What's the make and model of your laptop? Most times the flashing lights will tell what the issue is.

If the laptop will not boot up so you can use it then the things below applies.

Sounds like your power cord is bad. Or the DC Jack is not soldered on good. Just because the power cord is new does not mean it works. Some Power Cords have a little green light on the adapter to show that it is plugged into the wall and getting power, check yours.

Anything ever post to the screen when you hit the power button? Do the fans start up, the hard drive spins? If not, maybe your power cord has enough power to emit a light but not enough to start the fan or disk drive.

If it's not the power cord or dc jack, then you have a Memory or Video Card issue.

OK after reading your post a 2nd time I think your only issue is that the battery is not charging, correct? If that is true the things below applies:

Either the battery is bad or the power cord is bad. Just because they are new don't mean they work. See if the Adapter portion of the power cord has a green indicator light that comes on when you plug it to an outlet. If it does, and that light is not on the power cord has issues. Also I hope you did not buy one of those one size fits all power cords from the big box stores where the end has a bag of different interchangable parts until you find one that fits into the laptop. If so, buy a power cord off ebay that is made for your laptop.

The battery might be bad and not hold a charge. I have seen new batteries that did not work.

My gateway netbook wont charge, they sent me a new battery but again it will not charge, what could be wrong?


Hello,

The problem might be either from the charger or from the laptop.

To confirm and repair if it is the charger, all you have to do is to plug the charger on another laptop to see if it will charge, if it does not charge, then you know the fault is from the charger, and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one, before you replace it, try to connect another power cord to the charger, because sometimes the power cord might have been burnt, that have happened to me twice and replacing the power cord solved the problem. But if replacing the power cord does not help, then you need to change the power cord.

To confirm and repair if it is the laptop, plug in a new charger to the laptop, if it does not charge, then you need to understand that the charging port of the laptop is faulty and needs to be replaced, have a repairman replace the charging port for you.

Take care and good luck

Why does laptop stop working through adaptor after battery flat


Hi There,

Your battery charger/adapter connects to the DC Power Jack to power your laptop and charge the battery. Since the charger/adapter does 2 things, there are 2 "cells" inside it to do those 2 different things. It's not uncommon for one or the other (but not both) to fail. So, often just purchasing a new charger/adapter solves the problem you're having. It appears that yours is continuing to charge but has stopped "adapting" AC current to DC current to power the laptop directly.

My powerbok g4 got the metal tip of the AC power cord jack broken inside of the DC port of the laptop. This caused some sparks to come out of the port when the cord was plugged in again, so had to charge...


You need this part replaced bud:

But you can't just buy this one. You have to buy the one that fits your model and processor speed.

My compaq presario will not power up (no power). I have swapped and tried a different power supply. No luck


Could be one of a few things. I'm assuming this is a presario laptop, not a desktop.

System needs to be restarted - Remove the battery and let the laptop sit a while (30 minutes). Reinstall battery and plug in power supply and see if it works. If not,

Remove the Battery and see if it is charged up (there are a set of green lights on most compaq laptop batteries with a spot to push to confirm the battery is charged). If it isn't charged, you very likely have a bad DC Jack connector on the laptop motherboard. If you apply pressure to the cord which plugs into your laptop (up and down, side to side) at the spot where the cord is connected (back of the laptop), see if the power light, on the front of the laptop, comes on for second. If it does, you can fix this by buying the DC Jack for your laptop model on ebay ($10) and removing the old connector and installing, soldering in, the new connector. This will require you to take your laptop apart. (note: Search the internet for the service manual for your laptop and this will give step by step directions on how to do this.)

Also, I think they do this at Best Buy (Nerd Herd) if you aren't comfortable doing ($75)

If it's not the DC Jack, it's a problem with the motherboard / CPU / Power Inverter or something else, most likely not worth your time to fix. You could sell the laptop for parts on ebay to recoup as much of your cost as possible, then buy another.

If you are slightly mechanical and are looking for a project and don't need the laptop immediately, you could buy the individual parts and replace piecemeal, based on directions from the service manual. FYI - I've picked up a few laptops for next to nothing and repaired this way {Compaq Evo n620c (CPU / DC Jack), IBM T22 (LCD Screen), Compaq M700 (DC Jack)}.

Possibly Need a New DC Jack In Your Laptop... the DC JAck Is The Port Where Your AC Adapter Plugs Into...

Though You SHould as well Check For Proper Power To Your CHarger Cord.. Not all AC Cords That Have Their Lights On Are Able To Charge...

To CHeck If It's The DC Jack... Remove Your Battery..... Plug In the AC Adapter Cord... Power On... If You Get No Lights/ No Power/ No Fans Etc..... It's Your DC Jack
