Easy Power Jack Repairs
For most of us, a computer is an absolute necessity. If you are ready to get to work, but when you hit the power button nothing happens, it can be a really bad way to start your day. If your computer does not respond when you turn on the power button, there are a few things you can check. Two things to check first are the DC power jack and the AC power adapter. Power jack repair is not difficult, but it is important to determine first that the problem is not with the AC power adapter.
Checking The Jacks
Begin by ensuring the AC power adapter is working by trying it out on another machine. If it appears to be working correctly, then try plugging it into the DC power jack and then hit the power button. Immediately try moving the AC power adapter side to side and up and down. If you see lights flickering and trying to come on, then you have a bad DC power jack.
You will need several tools in order to repair the power jack. These are a digital multimeter, some small wire, a soldering iron, solder, solder paste flux, and a Phillips screwdriver. IF you do not already know how to solder, you should practice on old or scrap motherboards until you are sure you are capable of using solder to make repairs. You should also ensure you understand and know how to use the digital multimeter because you will use this to test your DC power jack to check if it is bad.
You will first need to disassemble your laptop. Take it apart all the way down to the motherboard. You can usually find instructions on how to do this either on the manufacturer’s website or somewhere else online.
Once the laptop is disassembled and you can access the motherboard, you can start your inspection of the DC power jack. Using the digital multimeter, place it on the OHMS setting and ensure the sound is on. You want the multimeter to beep if the black and red probes touch.
Next, find the power jack’s center pin and place one of the probes on the front of the pin and then place the other probe on the back of the DC power jack. Many times the center pin will come loose and begin moving. This can be the cause of a faulty connection in the DC power jack. Check to ensure the sound is on and then use the multimeter to check if there is a shared connection. If there is, the multimeter should beep. If the connection is open or faulty, then the multimeter will emit no sound. If you believe the connection is open you can use small needle nose pliers to repair it. If the connection is loose, apply the flux and then solder the back.
Once you are sure the connection is good from the center pin front to the power back jack, then you should check the connection running from the back of the center pin to the motherboard and onto the bottom of the board.
It is common to find a problem with the solder at the through hole. It may be a bad solder point, but usually, the problem occurs as a result of stress from the AC adapter power cord.
You can always buy a new DC power jack and then install it when it comes in. However, if the connection is bad, you will still need to fix the problem with a repair. If the problem is with the jumper wires, there are methods of running a new jumper wire. You can run the jumper wire from the back of the center pin through the motherboard to the bottom or you can run it from the back of the center pin to the board’s trace.
You can connect the jumper wires with a solder. Just solder one end of the jumper wire to the place on the motherboard where the center pin emerges. Then, solder the other end of the wire to the DC power jack center pin back.
Making a power jack repair is simple, but you do need to know how to solder and disassemble your laptop. It is a good idea to practice both of these processes before you perform any power jack repairs.
