Power Jack Replacement
Do you think your laptop power jack needs replacement? How do you know? Without technical advice, you may not know the correct answer. The problem could be a bad battery. The AC adapter could be broken. Without expert advice, it can be difficult to dissect the situation. Do you need a new battery, or do you need a new power jack? Is your laptop dead? TechRx Inc. of Green Bay has the answer.
Often, I receive phone calls from individuals and business that had the power jack repaired, but this simply meant it was re-soldiered to the board. This situation should be avoided. Replacement is the proper solution. Most power jacks are plastic and many shops simply melt them due to inexperience. Since we do hard drive data recovery; we have thousands of hours of experience in attaching small parts to printed circuit boards.
Please give me a call to discuss your situation, and I will help you determine if repair is appropriate and what method should be taken to ensure a proper repair.
