Laptop DC/Power Jack Repair

Laptop won't charge anymore? Still works on battery? DC Jack Repair **$69 Flat Rate**

If you have a loose or broken DC connection where you plug in the power on your laptop, or it works intermittently, you could have a bad DC jack. We fix/replace the outlet for $69 parts and labor. There is an additional $20 for shipping back to you.

Symptoms:
  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection
  • Broken or cracked dc jack
  • Laptop won't charge but worked on battery
  • Power LED and battery LED flicker when the adapter tip is moved
  • Battery won't charge
  • Sparks come out the back of the laptop
  • Feels very loose or wobbly where you plug it in.

Why does this happen?
  • Flaw in manufacturer designs
  • Use of universal or non-original ac adapter
  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the ac adapter
  • Tripping on or pulling the ac adapter cord


Be carefull of the wrong information some repair centers give:

Most service centers don't want to deal with this problem on a micro repair basis. Many, including the large nationwide stores and the laptop's manufacturer, will either tell you the machine is not repairable or that it needs a new motherboard. These quotes usually run from $250 to as much as $800. They choose to ignore the fact that a broken power jack can be repaired without a motherboard replacement.

Common brands with this problem are HP/Compaq, Toshiba, Dell, and Gateway but any laptop can fall victim to a bad power plug. Don't pay hundreds to fix something that can be done for under $100
