DC Jack Repair

If your notebook no longer charges or you have to hold the A/C adapter's plug a certain way to have your notebook power on at all, you probably have a bad DC jack in your notebook. Fixing this problem requires the notebook to be completely disassembled and the motherboard removed, if your DC jack is soldered to the motherboard. Once the motherboard is removed the failed DC jack will be unsoldered from the board, the contact points cleaned, and a new DC jack soldered back in place. The notebook will be re-assembled and tested.


The fee for this service, both parts and labor, is generally $180. For those notebooks, like some Toshiba's, that have the DC jack on a cable harness, rather than soldered to the motherboard, your cost might be as low as $80 - $100 for parts and labor.


If you are experiencing the above problem, please don't keep using the notebook until it no longer turns on. Doing so may result in the motherboard needing to be replaced instead of just the jack because of arching that can occur and damage the connection points beyond repair.
