Power DC Connector


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.

Great place, specialists in laptop repair, especially water damage. Also do iPhone screen repair. Very friendly, fair with pricing. Like a good garage for your car, will find the problem as far as possible for a fixed, small price then get consent for any costs to repair additionally. My laptop was soaked in baby milk, but was repaired overnight for less than even the £80 which was estimated and I had agreed to. Very highly recommended as I'm now completely out of a bind and I have my laptop back!read more
