Is your laptop not charging?
We can diagnose and solve your computer power issues

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

Symptoms:

  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection

  • Broken or cracked dc jack

  • 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

Why does this happen?

  • Flaw in manufacturer designs

  • Use of universal or non-original ac adapter

  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the ac adapter

  • Tripping on or pulling the ac 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.
