Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook
I've had my laptop for about 9 or 10 months, but in the past week or so, the cord that supplies the power has been jiggling in its socket. Sometimes it doesn't do anything, sometimes I have to unplug it from the laptop and then re-plug it.
Just now, however, no matter how much I jiggle the cord, it will only stay in place for about a second. I have to keep it in place with my hands -- I've tried resting it on something, but it doesn't work. Is there something I can do (I'll settle for tape, if it works!) that will give me all the power I need? Right now I'm relying on battery power, so please hurry!
The part itself (the power pin) is not that expensive ($5-10), it's the labor to replace it that can cause heartburn ($100 - 250). If you are comfortable working on electronic items it's worth a try. I've fixed two laptops successfully. If you can't get it fixed get a JerkStopper to hold the cable in position so it charges. The JerkStopper was designed to keep you from damaging the pin but it also works to hold the cable in a position that will allow the system to charge.

The DC jack in the machine has come loose or is worn out and needs replaced. Be careful, if the soldier on the jack has broken loose it can cause an electrical arch and do sever damage to the machine.
