My boss asked me last week if I thought I might be able to fix his laptop, the power jack had been damaged and needed to be replaced. I like to dabble with electronics and after checking out a few videos on YouTube it looked like it might be possibe. I ordered a replacement jack off  Ebay  it arrived yesterday so now it’s time to take it apart and see if I can actually do it.

So far so good, managed to get all the connections off and the mother board out with out damaging anything. Now for the fun part desoldering the connection


Hard part done managed to remove the connector with out damaging the motherboard just need to remove the rest of the solder from the thru holes and solder on the new connection.





Success it boots and charges again!!!  I certainly couldn’t earn a living do this but it’s fun seeing what you can repair with a little help from YouTube
