Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook ?

The port you plug the power cord into is not making a good connection - how to fix?


Answers :

The connector is attached to a metal block with a screw at the top of the block holding the connector in place. This arrangement also provides a connection between the power cord and the computer. The problem is that the screw has come loose and now your connection is lost. The only way to get to it is time consuming. THIS IS NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED. IF YOUR NOT SURE, TAKE IT TO A REPAIR SHOP. You DO NOT need a mother board. You must notate CAREFULLY all of your steps and the connectors you undo. First turn off your computer (goes without saying). Remove your battery pack, CD/DVD drive, hard drive, and any other plug-ins. Remove all screws from the bottom of the computer. This will loosen the keyboard. Lift off the keyboard while noting where you connectors are. They must be undone! At this point look at the top left hand side of the main board. There are a couple of small movable boards that must be unscrewed and lifted (WARNING: Remember where the white wire is connected to. And if somebody knows, TELL ME!!!) Lift the board nearest the far edge. On the right hand side is the block. Just tighten the screw on top. Reverse steps and test. Should be ok. Last point, I can't find anykind of wiring diagram and I would really like to know where that white push-in wire connector goes. Any help would be appreciated. [email protected].
Try to pull the tab from the inside (Laptop) outward a little but be gentle, this holds the cable firm.
