Replacement DC jack for Compaq Presario R3306

Can anyone tell me the specification for the DC power jack that is
soldered to the motherboard for the Compaq Presario R3306 laptop? The
pin broke off one of our notebooks, and don't want to fork over $600
for the motherboard to be replaced. There is a lettering on the
connector: FOXCONN 49PCB but I cannot find that reference/part number

I have replaced jacks on laptop mainboards.  You basically have to measure
the center pin hole & outside diameter of the exernal plug ( the adapter
plug that plugs INTO the laptop ).  It will usually be either 2.1 X 5.5 MM
or 2.5 X 5.5 MM.  Armed with that knowledge, you can order a suitable
replacement from:

You'll need to scout around, but they DO sell them.  They also DO have a
minimum order, so figure out some other electro-junk you need like solder,
shrink tubing, sinking compound, etc.

If you need a 2.5 X 5.5, I have a few loose ones and can hook you up.  Reply
