If your notebook or laptop no longer powers on or charges, could your power jack be at fault? Usually that’s good news, I can most often fix them! I have worked on hundreds of laptops with the same issue. Over time power jacks will stretch, wearing out causing a faulty connection. Another type of power jack failure occurs when the solder joints crack. Causing what is know as a ‘cold’ solder joint. Repeatedly insert the power jack into your notebook or laptop causes stress to the internal jacks mounting points. Solder is considered a soft metal and can develop stress fractures very easily.
I can usually have your laptop up and running again in short time. Contact me directly with your manufacturer and model number. I will reply with the availability of parts. $120 will cover return shipping and parts for 99% of machines I have worked on. Some require more expensive jacks but are very rare. Did you save your box that the laptop came in? Do you live local to Tampa Florida?
