Broken Laptop Power Jack

2 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any experience with opening a laptop computer and repairing it? My wife's Samsung Book 4 has a broken power jack. I'm guessing it must have suffered some kind trauma that caused it to break. A small piece of the black plastic on the end of the power cord is chipped off, but I think it still works. More important is the jack in the computer itself seems to be damaged. One of the clips is broken on the inside of it and the piece in the middle seems to be missing altogether.

I've contacted Samsung, and their response to me was to call some parts dealer to buy a new power cord. I'm not sure they understand what the issue is.

Anyway, since I have experience with fixing electronics, I'm just going buy a new jack, soldering iron, etc. and do this myself. I just wanted to know if anyone has any experience or tips they'd like to share. Any information on potential hazards, tricks, or just general advice would be welcome.

And yes, I understand I'm asking on a golf forum about computer repair :-P
