Replacing the DC input connector on a Sharp m4000 widenote laptop
\015 Replacing the DC input connector on a Sharp PC-m4000 Widenote laptop computer. A user snapped off the center pole/conductor of the DC power input jack on the laptop. It seems crazy to destroy a perfectly working laptop because a 10cent part is busted.I have contacted a couple service places (listed on the web) including those that specialize in replacing these jacks and they cannot be sure that they will do this. When I contacted Sharp they can't tell me if replacing a jack or a motherboard is possible or required and provide a ballpark cost.The machine worked fine until the battery ran out of juice. And because the jack is busted I can't recharge it.In order to be sure the outside (not sharp) service providers would like pictures of the jack - This would seem to require opening the unit up, to get images inside.While I have opened and serviced laptops before (Dell, Toshiba) the Sharp seems put together differently. Does anyone have a diagram or instructions on how to disassemble the widenote computer?This kind of repair would seem standard, but Sharp wont suggest a cost figure to replace one or both.Sincerely,Sigmund@uic.edu\015
Yes it can be replaced and it has to be done with experience in soldering desoldering or the mobo will be junk. Splitting the cases is only a small part of the job if you have no experience in soldering methods. See if there is another way that you can charge the battery but I can not imagine it to be convienent

AC Adapter One day, my charger seemed to have simply become very touchy. It had to be in a particular angle just to charge my computer. After about a week of this, the whole thing ceased to work.
