The DC Jack is the socket into which the power cable plugs into your notebook. If it has come loose the the solder points connecting the jack to the motherboard have broken contact and that is why the notebook is not charging. A loose DC jack is not suitable for DIY repair unless you are experienced in internal notebook repairs and have all the right equipment.
The only way to get this fault repaired is for a professional notebook repair technician to completely disassemble the notebook and then either re-solder the original jack back into place or install and solder in a new replacement jack before reassembling the notebook. Because of the skill and time it takes to disassemble repair and reassemble a notebook, repairing a loose DC jack can be expensive, but if you look around you should be able to find an experienced notebook repair center that will do it for $50-$75 and give you a warranty as well.
A DC jack often become loose if it is allowed to directly bear the deadweight of the heavy AC/DC Adapter on the power cable or the cable catches on something wile connected to the notebook. the AC/DC Adapter should lie full weight on the floor during charging. If the cable is not long enough for the heavy AC/DC Adapter to reach the floor, then it should be lifted it up and placed on the desk or table beside the notebook. Any cable length problems should be solved by using a surge-protected power extension cable. Also, a notebook should never be carried around when its power cable is attached to it.

Charging problem in sony vaio VGN-N220E


sounds more like your dc jack(where you insert your plug into the laptop ) is going bad. If you have a multimeter the first thing to test would be your charger to make sure it isnt faulty. If the charger is fine then it is most certainly the dc jack. Replacing the dc jack is best to be left to someone who specializes in that kind of repair but if you know how to solder it may be something that you can do yourself. click here for more info on dc jacks.

Battery wont change


A problem is just like a mountain. You don't jump over the mountain, you climb it in steps, one step at a time.

1.How old is the battery? 1 to 2 years old, you can expect it to be at the end of it's Life Cycle. Batteries are rated in so many hours of usage.
Best bet is to let the battery charge 24 hours, then try it.

Would be nice if you someone else that has an Inspiron 1525, and they would try to charge your battery. If it doesn't charge up, you would know it's the battery. If it does charge up you can move on down the charging system, to try to find the problem.

2.AC adapter, (Charger) If you have a multimeter, set it to the 50 volt DC scale.
Laptop and desktop computers use DC current. (Direct Current) Your house, for example, uses AC current, (Alternating Current)
AC is converted to DC by the AC adapter, (Charger)

An example of DC current are flashlight batteries, and your laptop battery.
DC current has a Positive pole, and a Negative pole.
The center pin of the plug of your AC adapter is the Positive pole. Any of the four outside pins on the plug, are Negative.
The Red, (Positive), probe of the multimeter goes to the center pin. The Black, (Negative), probe goes to any of the outside four pins on that plug.
Example of a DC Power Jack, for the Dell Inspiron 1500 Series of laptops, 1525 and 1526, (This is the jack inside your laptop, where you plug the AC adapter into),
http://www.megaemarket.com/dc-power-jack-for-dell-inspiron-150150015011505.html

3.It may be that DC Power Jack itself is bad, or one of the solder connections is cracked. It's hard to see it clearly on the link I provided, (So I Right-clicked on it, Save Image As, and put it right in my My Pictures folder. Then I magnified it), but in the photo you will see some metal pins sticking out of the rectangular body.

The metal pins are sticking up. In reality those pins go down, when the jack is mounted on the motherboard. They go through the motherboard, via holes, and are soldered on the other side.
It is these solder joints that may crack, is what I'm referring to.

Solution to 1?
Obviously buy a new battery.

Solution to 2?
If your multimeter findings show lower voltage than needed, it's time to buy a new AC adapter. They have generic ones that can be used on a variety of laptops. The voltage will be stated on the top of the AC adapter.
Example: 19.2V-1.0A
That's 19.2 Volts at 1 AMP.

It may just be the plug end on the AC adapter itself. The plug end that goes into the DC Power Jack, on your Inspiron laptop.

Solution to 3?
Unless you are a skilled Electronics Technician, and have Excellent de-soldering/soldering skills, I advise taking it to a computer repair shop. It may not just be cracked solder joints. The DC Power Jack may need to be replaced. Maybe the motherboard is one of a bad design, and where the DC Power Jack attaches to it, has cracked.

Dc power jack not charging


Even though the best thing you should have just done is to take along with you the AC Power Adapter that came with it, so as to get the exact replacement, but I will still tell you the best one for your PC.
Try and Make sure that the specifications for the one you will buy meets the this output power rating :
DC Voltage : 20V
The Current should be : 3.0A.
Product Number : 76-011651-5A

Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

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)}.
