Asus X53U Broken DC Jack

This Asus X53U came in with a physically broken power plug.  The notebook also had some cosmetic damage due to the fall near the jack area.  It uses a cable style dc jack that plugs directly into the motherboard.  The chassis on this model is very similar to the Acer 5740 and gateway NV53a laptops that are also notorious for needed a dc jack repair.
The X53U needs to be completely taken apart to the motherboard level to access the dc jack.  Once replaced the laptop charges the battery and powers on properly.

You need to figure out if it has the cable style dc jack or the one that's soldered directly to the motherboard.
