Acer 3680 ac pin broken

Hi there, I have an acer 3680 aspire note book. One of my darling children tripped over the cord and snapped off the pin to the mother board for the ac adapter. I have tried soldering the pin back on with a contductive solder, but it did not work. Is there a way to wire the power directly into where the battery supplies the power?

That's really not advisable. At our shop we do socket repairs, I suggest finding someone local who specialises in laptops and asking them to replace it. You can get the sockets on e-bay, etc, if you wish to try it at home, though I don't advise it.

Don't forget to take static safety precautions!

Broken Power Pin


Your model has a power jack that is soldered to the mainboard.

Yes, this is a common problem with a lot of notebooks. It usually happens when someone walks by and trips on the power wire and pulls the notebook off the desk / table and onto the floor.

Unless you're comfortable with taking it apart, and good with a soldering iron, you should take it to a repair shop.

If you ARE comfortable with doing so, the power jack can be purchased from several suppliers on Ebay, for about $12 including shipping. Just do a search for "aspire 3680 jack" and you will see them.

PS: Most shops charge $100-$150 to replace the jack.

Possibly powerplug!


The poor design of the power pin is a major source of problems on almost all laptops. Do a google search for power pin problems and you'll see what I mean.

Problem stems from jerking or tugging on the cable. Every laptop should come with a cable retention device to keep from damaging the fragile power pin.

This video has some pretty good information about it. . .

ACER 3680 KEYBOARD


there are many many different keyboard designs, it is hard to make a suggestion...usually if it looks like nothing is broken on the key or keyboard you push down firmly and it snaps back into place.
