Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

How would you repair the recharging jack in the acer 3680 with a battery (Lion 11.1v 4400 mAh) Can you just buy the jack within the computer or is it attached to the mother board directly and you have to replace the motherboard. Thanks to everyone for their help and suggestions. [email protected]


Answers :

The jacks are soldered on the motherboard.
You can buy one if yours is actually broken and solder it on the motherboard yourself. You can also just re-solder the jack on the motherboard if it is otherwise functional (that is, not physically broken).

You have to be really careful, as you are applying heat to a very sensitive piece of electronics.

And yes, I have done this myself.
