How to Fix Laptop DC Power Jack for Good

How to Fix Laptop DC Power Jack for Good

NEW VERSION (With BONUS Footage: Fix Overheating Laptops) If your laptop power jack doesn’t seem to work any more or moving the power wire causes your laptop to go on battery mode or even worse it turns your laptop off, YOU MY FRIEND need this video to help you fix your own laptop for FREE if you happen to own a soldering iron and some solder.

It’s very common for Laptop Power Jacks (the thingy where the power wire plugs into) to break. This problem happens on any brand of laptop. It’s been a problem for Acer, Apple, Toshiba, HP’s, Asus, Gateway, Alienware, and pretty much any laptop out there.

The GOOD NEWS is that the problem is really easy to fix, but it can be a little time consuming. Fixing my wife’s ACER 8930G took me over an hour but that is because I was recording this video for you guys. If I was just doing it for myself, I could probably do the whole thing in less than 30 minutes.


I include footage on how to fix laptop overheating issues which is very common on gaming laptops. Chances are that your laptop worked fine before, but now it overheats… Watch the video for the BONUS TIP.

Comment below with how long it took you to fix yours!

    To prevent losing the screws and remembering where they go. I slightly screw them in their designated place while I'm fixing to "break" stuff

    I don’t see how I’m supposed to “soder” it back on. With what glue? Tape?

    How about people who don't know what the fuck they're talking about, don't make laptop repair videos. Wouldn't that be nice?

    The Laptop is working…The Music DEFINITELY is NOT WORKING!…OH and use compressed air to clean the fan, not a Vacuum cleaner. Using a Vacuum is a good way to cause a lot of other problems with that computer

    Wait a minute aren't you not supposed to use a vacuum cleaner due to static electricity that could damage your hard drive?

    Hey LexTek, thank you for your detailed explanation, effort, TIME and informative video of such a teeny tiny small, idiotic, and petty problem. I was so exhausted and like other commenters on the music front.. No wonder you started with the ammo talk. HERE HERE.
    I will let the nerd squad at BEST BUY fix my jack issue. Again, thank you.

    Without reading any comments, I'm getting a HARD Weber Cooks vibe from this video. Thought you were going to open with, "Hello Wildcats…."

    I am unable to charge my laptop. The power port became loose over time. Is there a way to charge the battery without a cord? Also, how much do you charge to do the job?
