Re: Laptop Power Problem

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Have you tried waggling the socket to see if the light flickers..?
Could be the actual socket wants a re-solder... these things are only
usually held by their soldered contacts which can easily become loose
with plugging and unplugging.

Also try waggling the lead at the plug end, where it goes into the
Laptop, the connections are easily broken with continuous flexing.
These plugs are usually moulded if this is the problem then simply
snip off and connect a new one ... but you do need to get the
polarity right - that is the positive (+) and negative (-) leads and
would have to be soldered.

These should be the first things to try, once these are cleared we can
look elsewhere.
