A broken laptop power jack is a common problem that can be easily, quickly and inexpensively repaired. Laptop DC Jacks can either be soldered on to the system board or there are pigtails that slide into a channel on the base or top cover. Unfortunately, sometimes the DC Power Jack is pushed hard and the plastic channel breaks, causing the laptop power jack to be loose and floats in the base.
Rather than fixing your old laptop power jack, we replace the dc jack with a new one. Repairing an old DC Jack is dangerous and typically will not last. The best and safest way to ensure a quality repair is to replace the laptop DC Jack.
