PC Workshop have been replacing DC Jacks for years in all makes and models and with the later laptops becoming lighter and more flimsy expect to see a lot more!
The power jack on most models of laptops do not have enough reinforcement within the structure of the casing and motherboard to handle the stress caused by movement of the power plug.
Some power jacks simply fail under normal operation of your computer. After a year or two of usage, parts come loose on certain models.
Sometimes the laptop gets dropped and the cord yanks the DC jack loose.
People, pets and vacuum cleaners trip over laptop power cords and break the power jack.
The laptop is moved around a lot. After the DC jack is moved back and forth enough times, it comes loose.
Does your laptop have a broken DC power jack?
Symptoms of a broken DC power jack:
The laptop only operates when you hold the power cord in a certain direction.
The laptop only runs on battery power.
The laptop gets no power at all.
The laptop will not charge the battery.
The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently.
The laptop suddenly shuts off.
Sparks come out of the back of the laptop.
PC Workshop do not send this work out to third parties in fact the opposite as we repair for other local companies who don’t have the know how to carry out this type of work.
