Broken Laptop – Does it need a “laptop power jack repair”?

Posted by techie on July 16, 2006

I’ve used a number of laptops that have had problems with power. Most of the time I just end up either leaving the laptop plugged in when I’m using it. That sucks, but I didn’t know there was another solution for what I now know is called laptop power jack repair.

Here’s a list of possible symptoms that may represent laptop power jack repair:

Symptoms of a broken power jack:
– The laptop only runs when you keep the power cord in a certain direction.
– The laptop only runs on battery power.
– The laptop will not charge the battery.
– The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently.
– The unit suddenly shuts off
– Sparks come out of the back of the laptop.

I hate the power cord direction one and the laptop not charging the battery. I wonder what the sparks one would look like. Reminds me of the recent Dell laptop that exploded.
