Unfortunately, not really any way to avoid it :(

At the least, to attach a fly-lead instead of a socket would still involve having to de-solder the old socket to get at the power points on the mainboard, and that desoldering is the awkward part - pushing the new one on and just soldering the legs is the easy side of the job.


The soldering of these sockets is actually quite easy, but it's important to have a soldering iron hot enough, and to have good quality solder, flux (unless the solder has it built in), a clean hot iron tip, and if possible a magnifier to make it all easy to see what's being done.

Good luck with it.

Dc power jack replacement


Many newer laptops support easy power jack replacement (wires to an internal connector), but from what I saw online, the jacks on ASUS laptops are soldered directly to the motherboard. Unless you're a qualified technician with specialized soldering/desoldering equipment (solder pot/solder fountain), it'd be best to either take it to a service center for repair, or to replace the motherboard.

Hi i need help plz, i've my laptop do not power when i plug the ac adapter ther' is no ligth


You may have a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

Will not boot up, screen is blank power light comes on for a few second, then turns off


Either your DC jack is bad the motherboard is bad or the power supply is bad. The DC jack on that one is NOT soldered in and fairly easy to replace if you know how to tear it down. Toshiba uses a clip in clip on DC jack instead of soldering them to the board. Start by ohming out the power supply make sure its placing out the correct amperage. Thibk its around 1.58 amp at 19volts. You can see 4 sure looking at the label on it. If its good I would take it to a qualified shop to have the DC jack and board tested to see which is causing your power issue. The average replacement laptop board is $285 not including labor. DC jacks run about $5 but the labor should run around $100

How to replace dc power jack for toshiba p15


Take apart laptop and see what type of jack is on your system. There are two types. one is soldered on and the other is a module that connects to the motherboard with a wire connector.

If you have a soldered on type the you will need to de-solder it from the board then solder a new one onto the board. most ac jack issue just need to resolder it unless the jack itself is broken.

Power socket is loose


dc jack socket for Sony VAIO VGN-FW is very easy to loose, I think you can replace the cabled dc jack, no solder work, plug in and work, see this reference page: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-vgnfw-series-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2647.html
the above item is with ground cable, it is known that sony FW uses both harnesses with or without ground cable, you can cut the ground cable directly if your laptop does not use it, or order from this page for the one without ground cable: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-07300012492a-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2782.html
hope this can help you

MY GATEWAY LAPTOP NO LONGER RECEIVES POWER.


Motherboard or harddrive? I'm betting it's more towards the motherboard. The DC Power Jack to be more specific. This is the port where the AC adapter, (Charger), plug is plugged into.

The DC Power Jack is not much bigger, than the plug for the AC adapter that plugs into it. There are small pin leads that are on the bottom of this jack, and they go through the motherboard, and are soldered to the motherboard.

Accidental bumping of the AC adapter plug, while plugged into the DC Power Jack, can damage the jack. It can break the connections for the adapter plug, and/or can crack the solder joints for those small pin leads.

[Laptops use DC electricity. A flashlight battery, and a laptop battery, are examples of stored DC electricity. DC electricity has two poles. Positive and Negative. The DC Power Jack has two connections. Positive and Negative. {Even if the DC Power Jack has multiple holes in it]

There is also another known problem associated with DC Power Jacks. It may stem from a bad motherboard design.

More to the point, the area where the DC Power Jack mounts on the motherboard. In this design, the DC Power Jack motherboard area, is almost a separate part of the motherboard. It's shaped like a Peninsula. (Think of an island, with one side connected to the mainland)

This peninsula shape, has the tendency to crack away from the main body of the motherboard. Circuit traces are broken.

When the AC adapter plug is setting in a certain position, it presses the two broken halves of the circuit traces together, for a momentary contact. As the AC adapter plug is moved from this position, the circuit trace halves are moved apart, and there is no contact.

(No distribution of electricity from one circuit trace half, to the other circuit trace half. Think of a circuit trace as a very, thin, flat copper wire. When a circuit trace is broken, there is essentially a wire that is broken into two parts)

Solution?
See if the DC Power Jack can be repaired, (Solder joint connections re-soldered), or replaced.
If the DC Power Jack motherboard area is the aforementioned peninsula shape, it may require replacement of the motherboard.

There are very FEW, computer repair shops that have the technical expertise to replace a DC Power Jack. Easy fix is to simply replace the motherboard. (More $$$$$ too)

However, some laptops DO require replacement of the motherboard for this repair.
Bad motherboard design, for the DC Power Jack area on the motherboard.

Re-solder DC Power Jack solder joints? (IF, this is the problem) Average is $50 to $75 (US)
Replace DC Power Jack? Average is $125 to $150. (US)
Replace motherboard? Depends on the Gateway model. Could be $225 to $400 (US)

[Yes, most of the time the cost warrants just replacing the laptop itself, as the cost of replacing, is close to the repair cost)

Just to SHOW you ab average DC Power Jack, and the repair involved of replacing. (Doesn't show you, that the entire laptop needs to be disassembled, down to the bare motherboard in hand)

This is NOT a recommendation to replace the DC Power Jack yourself! It is just for knowledge of what is partially involved. (You can accidentally burn the motherboard when desoldering, or soldering, rendering the motherboard useless)

Hi

DC jack replacement is easy however requires a bit care since its mounted on the mainboard. Desolder the old DC jack. Solder the new one firmly. Dont keep the soldering iron too long on the PCB as it will damage the lines and will deform the DC Jack. You can get DC jack very low cos from local repair stores or you can order from Toshiba parts depot (800-524-8338)
Please post your question if you need further assistance.
Good Luck
