Power DC Connector
LAPTOP DC JACK
The port on your laptop where the power supply connects to is generally known as the DC Jack. It’s called a DC jack because of the type of electrical current that flows through it is ‘direct current’ The power coming from your wall sockets is AC ‘alternate current’ and your chargers job is to convert and regulate it in DC as per your laptops needs. There are also other names such as power port, power connector, power jack, power socket etc.
Symptoms of a broken DC power jack:
- The laptop only operates when you hold the power cord in a certain direction.
- The laptop only runs on battery power.
- The laptop gets no power at all.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently.
- The laptop suddenly shuts off.
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop.
