|HP NX7400 DC Jack Repair|
It uses a seven pin jack that many dell laptops (N5010, E5510) use. The location of the jack makes it difficult to de-solder and doesn't have much room for error.
After the replacement the notebook charges the battery and powers on again.
|SONY VGN-CS118E DC Jack Repair|
The CS118E needs to be almost completely taken apart to access the dc jack. It uses a cable style connection with a dc jack soldered on the end. We just de-solder the old broken tip and re-use the cable. This is a very effective way to do it and let's us repair the jack for $65 instead of $85+.
If soldering isn't an option you could replace the entire cable style jack. Once the jack is replaced the laptop is working like new again!
