Question about Toshiba Satellite P25-S507 Notebook
Can anyone tell me how to replace the dc power jack? I have a new one but can't figure out how to remove and replace.
Hi, by dc power jack, if you mean the one at the back of your toshiba laptop, to replace, you may have to completely disassemble the unit and expose the back of the printed circuit board. This would involve removal of several small screws, panels, brackets, devices (hd. kb, cd, etc), connectors, cables. The screws would normally be small philips + but others might require a torx driver. Once the back of the main pcb is exposed, you can proceed to desolder the jack. normally there are 2 or 3 solder points. Simply insert the new jack and solder in place, reassemble and that should do the trick. However, if you are not comfortable with disaasmebly and soldering, it might be to your advantage to let somebody technically trained to perform the replacement for you. Hope this helps. Please let me know how it turns up. Regards.
