Laptop Power Jack Repair


If you have a loose or broken connection where you plug in the power on your laptop, or it works intermittently – you could have a bad power jack.


  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection
  • Broken or cracked
  • Laptop won’t charge but worked on battery
  • Power LED and battery LED flicker when the adapter tip is moved
  • Battery won’t charge
  • Sparks come out the back of the laptop
  • Feels very loose or wobbly where you plug it in.

Why does this happen?

  • Flaw in manufacturer design
  • Use of universal or non-original power plug or adapter
  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the power plug or adapter
  • Tripping on or pulling the power plug or adapter cord

The wrong information some repair centers give:

Most service centers don’t want to deal with this problem on a micro repair basis. Many, including the large nationwide stores and the laptop’s manufacturer, will either tell you the machine is not repairable or that it needs a new motherboard. These quotes usually run from $250 to as much as $800. They choose to ignore the fact that a broken power jack can be repaired without a motherboard replacement.
