Laptop repair Services
Laptop Charging port (Dc socket) failure is one of the most common laptop faults, at Platinum Computers Hartlepool we have a comprehensive laptop repair service, so if you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, your laptop may need the dc socket replaced on your laptop.
1) Wiggling the power connector may cause the charging light to come on briefly or only when the connector is held at an angle, a flickering power light is a common sign.
2) The charging light may not illuminate, no matter what position the battery charger connector is moved to.
3) The battery may discharge when the laptop is turned on but charge ok when its off.
4) A burning smell may be noticed when the laptop is powered on or when charging from the mains.
5) Overheating around the power socket, you may notice that the power connector is hot when you remove the plug. Click here
The power connector used on most laptops is normally of very poor design, the stress of inserting and removing the power supply and all other movement is taken by just a few solder joints on the connector where it joins the motherboard, thus failure occurs due to metal fatigue of the solder joints and sometimes the fragile plastic housing can break inside the case. Complete failure does not always occur immediately, this is why wiggling the power connector can often cause the laptop to start charging again, however, it can equally cause the connection to heat up and burn. We cannot stress enough how important it is to have the dc socket replaced as soon as possible, as permanent damage to the motherboard can occur and then you may require a replacement motherboard, which can get expensive very quickly.

Sometimes it is necessary to replace the original laptop power supply as well, we can supply one at a very reasonable price if required. ALL our Laptop Chargers are TOP quality Laptop chargers, NOT cheap 3rd party or universal Laptop chargers.
Dc Socket Replacement looks deceptively easy at first glance, but it is a skilled job requiring full disassembly of the laptop, it is a job that requires experience and care, it is all too easy to crack the laptop case or even the motherboard, this is not a job you should attempt yourself. Many pc engineers with years of experience will not carry out laptop repairs, for fear of causing further damage to the machine.
The cost of dc power socket replacement is ONLY £40. While some laptops require a simple jack replacement, others may require a dc harness (wiring loom +socket), or a power circuit board which houses the socket, but sometimes also incorporates a usb port/s or other input sockets. The parts for this type of repair may cost anywhere from £5 to £50.
Platinum Computers will normally replace the Laptop Charging port within 1 - 2 working days.
