One of the most common laptop repairs we encounter at Orange County Computer®, Inc. is the DC Jack (the plug that powers the laptop).
Two common symptoms for DC Jack damage:
- The laptop will not accept external AC Power. The system runs continuously on the battery, until the battery dies.
- You have to move the power cord around until it starts accepting external power.
There are several factors that contribute to this hardware failure. The two most common are poor handling and poor design.
To avoid the cost of a DC Jack repair, Orange County Computer®, Inc. recommends the following:
- Avoid moving the laptop while the power cable is plugged into the DC Jack. (This will prevent wear and tear on the internal DC Jack connection)
- Avoid stretching the power cable to its furthest length at anything but a straight angle. Bending the power cable with enough pressure will damage the DC Jack. By keeping slack on the cable or using a straight angle will prevent pressure applied directly to the soldering supporting the DC Jack.
- Keep your laptop supported on a hard even surface such as a table or desk. (Using your laptop while connected to the AC power cable on an uneven surface such as a sofa or bed can force undue pressure on the DC Jack)
Opening and closing a laptop often enough can cause the hinges to become loose and sometimes brake.

Sometimes we can find a used or pulled LCD part which can save costs significantly.
