Loose power port

The power port is very loose and if I giggle it I can get power but its a pain and its started to make a bad sizzle sound, so is there any other way to power up my Averatec 6200 series (AV6210x61-01)? I like this laptop and I could have the port fixed but is it worth it cuz it kinda old? What does something like that cost, if you don't mind my asking????

Any help would great, as long as you don't suggest I take it apart myself. hahahaha Thanks PennySue

95 chevy lumina van some time the blower moter work, sometimes it dont. if you hit a bump it will shut off or start up as you are driving

This sounds like a bad motor or the mostlikely cause is a bad connection, check connection at the blower motor and look for a melted connector then you may want to take a look at the switch if there are no sign of loose or melted connector at the motor or the resisotr check the resistor after the motor then the switch, i would bet you will find a melted loose connector or motor is bad,good luck.

Its clicking

the clicking could be from thermal expansion or the thermostat turning off or on. Be sure it's a clicking sound and not a sizzling noise. Sizzling noises are caused by loose wires or burning contacts, this is dangerous.

Power cord port is loose and mchine gets no power

sounds like the power connector inside the computer finally gave out. Bad news is most likely it is built onto the motherboard which means it has to be replaced. If you are no longer under warranty this might be a little expensive to fix.

I would probably take it into a repair shop and get a quote for a new motherboard for it.

Ptb2454grw - freezer appears to be fine if a bit frosty. The refrigerator isn't cold no matter what setting it's on. Any suggestions?

Frost on the interior back wall is a sign of defrost system failure. about a third of the way back on the fresh food control panel you will see a recessed knob (defrost timer). Use a flat blade screwdriver to rotate the knob clockwise. A click will be heard each time the knob advances. Continue until a more pronounced click is heard. You are now in the defrost cycle. Within five minutes, you should begin to hear sizzling sounds coming from just under the frost on the interior back wall. If you do hear the sizzling, replace the defrost timer. If not, the trouble will be a bad heater, defrost thermostat (located behind the interior rear cover) or loose connection. ****Before any screws are removed to make a repair.....DISCONNECT THE UNIT FROM POWER.

Microwave making noise, not heating

Was the noise something like someone growling into a coffee cup?

As odd as that sounds, that's a common sound for a bad magnetron to make, a hollow gurgling or sizzling.

It may be the magnetron, but generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
