Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A75-S226 Notebook ?

My power jack is loose and doesn't charge my batteries. I had it resoldered but its loose again. What can I do to fix this ?


Answers :

It needs to be soldered again. Hopefully, there is not any additional damage like a broken jack or a dislodged solder pad.

The way I have helped these problem is the past is with hot glue. I will see if there is an adjacent structure and glue to it. Otherwise, I will just build a small support around the jack. I am still very cautious around the power jack afterwards.
