If you need to ask HOW to repair it, then STOP, and take the computer and the power-supply to a qualified technician, as soon as possible. He/she can re-solder the connection *before* it gets completely broken.

Power failure?

First check the power supply / adaptor to ensure this is working correctly. Measure the voltage using a multimeter - if this is correct move on ( if not replace power supply )

Does the keyboard work if you hold the plug in the socket or move it slightly ? If so this is a common problem as the power socket on the pcb fails at the solder joint and will need to be repaired / replaced.

If this appears to be solid then you may have done some internal damage by either plugging in a power adaptor with a too high voltage or wrong polarity. If this is the case you may have blown some circuitry inside which controls voltage regulation.

Please report more if you have more information.

Intermittent cable or modem problem


Check the connectors on the in-house cable, if they can move in their sockets slightly, they may become intemittent as temp and humidity changes. If you can replace the cable with a new one of a known brand. If not try pushing cable plugs all the way into each socket and surrounding the plug with Blu-Tak to stop any slight movement. If this does not work, check or replace the power supply for the modem, it may be occasionally dropping its voltage, due to other power demands within your house. A good quality power supply will keep a stable voltage for your modem.

Lenovo b750 is dead no power in lap top


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Yes, it is probably a worn connection (Where the contacts are slightly too far apart from wear and tear. You could replace the jack (probably the socket) or contact a repair service.

I moved my home office desk a few days ago. I properly powered down my computer and unplugged everything. When I reconnected everything, the computer won't power up.


1 - Make sure you have power to the outlet you plugged the computer into. 2 - Make sure all of the cables plugged into the back of the computer are firmly seated / attached.
3 - Check that the switch on the back of the computer (usually quite near the power cord) is turned on.

sounds like the power jack at back of computer has gone bad, check voltage of battery and see if it has good power if not then it is dead and not getting charged through port the jack at rear generally requires MB replacement and is very expensive and cheaper to get new laptop, u can remove HD from old lap top and copy data over. another choice is to get stand alone charger for laptop battery and use battery mode,

if battery tested good them there is slight chance power switch is bad

No power broadband router


Hi,

Initially, pls try:
  • check the output voltage of the AC adapter with the use of a DVM. Move, slightly bend, wiggle the cord specially close to the plug;
  • check the jack if it is fixed in place. If it wiggles/moves even a bit could indicate a loose/cold solder;
  • internal partial short. Possible a reverse protection diode or the voltage regulator.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
