Having problems with your Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro V2010 Notebook ?

Dry joint problem on power socket

\015 I too have a dry joint problem with the plug in the power socket on the laptop. i have ended up buying a new battery to see if that was the cause of the battery not charging. But I was wrong and i am now certain that the problem is caused by a dry joint on the motherboard. I have tried to gain access to the power socket but was not able to take off the back even though all screws have been removed. Can anyone suggest a site for its manual or a solution to remove the motherboard?\015

Hello,

First thing is to remove the top bezel. This is the piece of plastic between the keyboard and the display. Since you have removed all the bottom screws, you should be able to pop the bezel off by inserting the tip of a small flathead screwdriver under one of the plastic hinge covers. Check the back of the hinge covers for screws and remove any you see first. Once the bezel is off, remove the screws securing the keyboard and remove the keyboard. Be careful with the keyboard ribbon cable and the connector for it, they are fragile. Flip it over and remove any bottom panels. Disconnect the wireless antenna cables from the wireless card (usually black and white). Flip it over again. Snake the wireless antenna cables up through to the top and disconnect the other thicker cable (video and power) from the mainboard. Now you need to remove the display. After the display is off, remove the optical (dvd) drive. Remove any case screws you see from under where the keyboard was. You should be able to get it apart now. Be VERY mindful of connector wires/ribbons as you take it apart.

When soldering the joints (do em all on the power jack) be careful not to heat up the area too much as there are often very sensitive fuses close to the power jack. Do the joints quickly and do not use an excessive amount of solder. After you solder it, dry-fit the laptop back together and test it. If it's good, lay a small bead of hot glue around the base of the dc power jack to reinforce it.
