Jack on laptop doesn't work

\015 My laptop hp jack does not work. It seems like the jack for my power cord is pushed back so that I can't get any power to the laptop. The charging unit works(had it checked out), they said its on the laptop end.Can this problem be fixed easily.\015

Answers :

Hi there.
Yes it can be fixed easily but a Technician has to do the job as they will have to solder another adapter onto the laptop motherboard, which means complete disassembly of the laptop.
If you still have warranty i recommend you take advantage of that and send it in.
If you have no warranty then a reputable PC repair shop/store should be able to do the job for you within 48 hours and should be fairly cheap.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Anyone have any ideas of what it could be? Thanks!
