Having problems with your Acer Aspire 9410 Notebook ?

Broken power port (dc jack)

\015 I tripped over the cat, bumped my laptop and it fell off the coffee table. It landed on the side that has where the AC power adapter fits into the DC jack (hole) and it broke the DC jack on the inside of the laptop case. I'm trying to open the laptop up to get to the power port to assess the damage but the repair manual pdf doesn't explain how to get to it. It says to remove the middle cover but doesn't say how to do this. I've tried to pry it up but something is holding it there and I don't want to force it as I would probably have to replace two broken pieces instead of one. Do I have to go a different way then removing the keyboard? Do I need to remove the back cover instead?\015

Answers :

Whenever I replace dc jacks, MAJORITY of the time the entire computer needs to be taken apart down to the motherboard.

Usually I just remove every screw that I see and then carefully start to pry pieces off the laptop. Don't force anything though, everything should come apart with minimal effort, as long as the screws are out.

If you're going to attempt this repair yourself you're gonna need to set aside about two hours to complete it.

You'll need:

a soldering gun
solder
solder wick

Make sure you have a big, flat, clean workspace to work on.

If you have a camera it might help to take pictures along the way. At the very least keep track of where the screws go.

I usually separate them into two categories: outside the laptop and inside the laptop.

It's not the easiest thing to repair for the home user but you can do it if you've got the patience.

Hope this helps.

Best of luck!
