The power led won`t turn on


Remove main battery and try again, if no! sub out the ram memory one at a time and power up, if still no result! have the power supply adapter checked for correct voltage, if okay! the DC jack in the laptop is a common source of trouble, the computer must be dismantled down to the motherboard to address this, professional recommended.

Gateway kav60 not charging. i have to wiggle the cord and sometimes it refuses to charge.


I guess you've got a broken laptop power dc jack or power cable.


Symptoms of a broken Laptop DC power jack:


- The laptop only operates when you hold the DC power plug in a certain direction (DC jack is broken or loose).
- The laptop only runs on battery power (no power is getting through the DC jack).
- The laptop gets no power at all.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently due to a loose or broken power jack.
- The laptop suddenly shuts off.
- The DC jack may feel loose.
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop when you insert the power plug into the DC jack.

I have a gateway 3250GZ laptop, the DC in jack


http://forums.whatthetech.com/DC_Jack_Laptop_t105164.html

double check your power cord! i just went thru 3 days of troubleshooting my Gateway M6318. Thought it was my dc jack.... after tearing down my laptop... finding the jack in tact, soldering in tact. testing my power cord... off and on for 3 days.. it was reading 19v.. which is what it should... but as of today began zero reading on tester. Tomorrow I will buy a new power cord to see if this was the correct problem... wish i would have found the above reference site before all the other troubleshooting i had done... tearing down my lap top, pulling, tugging, twisting my power cord to get a good charge.... etc. hope this helps!

Is there a way to replace the DC jack?


yes there is, most DC jacks you can now buy online through ebay and the likes, search by make and model number, if no joy there you will need the motherboard model number which requires taking the laptop apart

Plug in power cord and push power button, nothing comes on


Yup Yup I had the 28, same problem, the issue is within the adapter plug itself, I ended up taking my laptop apart and hard wiring the the connections directly into the wires that came off the plug, it was the only way to solve the issue without ordering the part from gateway,,,this is a image of the device that is causing you this misery.
