Question about Acer Aspire 5610 Notebook
I am having problems with the jack in the back for the power cord. depending on the position of the cord i get power to the pc. if it wiggles any i lose power. battery still holds good charge. i am pretty sure it is the jack in the back of the pc due to the way i use it. is this a hard or expensive fix? Can someone tell me how to do it or link to thre instrucions?
is this the correct Part Number: AC351816
part number is from laptopjacks.com
Go to radio shack, and buy a *standalone* connector that is the same size as the current connector going to the back of your laptop. the good connectors will have 2 parts. the first part is what you will connect to the 2 wires after cutting off the current connecter (3 inches from the adapter to get past the short). the second part of the adapter will have 2 prongs that plug into the first piece that you splice to the power adapter cord (twisting wires). Polarity is an important factor here, so pull the battery out, then connect the power adapter. if the laptop doesn't power on with one single press of the power button, reverse the connector (pins going into opposite holes) and then try again.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it
