Default But Dad, all I did was plug it in !

Guy drops off a Acer Aspire One for a jack job. His kid borrowed it to show a friend but comes back an hour later saying the "power connector thingy isnt there". He dad is furious the kid broke his machine in under an hour, the kid says "But Dad, all I did was plug it in".

You be the judge:

Nice. Looks like someone dropped it on the plug. I have seen the metal sleeve come out of the jack.

May I ask how you plan to repair it? Using crazy glue maybe, if it's just the plastic that broke?

Just curious for future reference.

You remove the entire jack and put a new one in.

Never try to "repair" a jack.

Ah, of course.

Do you need to order the part based on the laptop model, or are there generic laptop jacks that can be purchased?

Just had a Toshiba Satellite come in yesterday with a similar issue.

The problem with this one was that the power connector is not sodered directly to the board like most laptops, instead it is a little plastic module that is secured by another piece of plastic behind it.

Kid somehow snapped the plasic bracket that held the module, so I had to Gorilla glue the plastic module onto the bezel of the laptop. Seems to be holding up pretty good, I really had no other ideas on correcting this as the snapped off plastic was missing and there is no way to replace except for swapping the whole bezel (not worth it for this issue).

So far everytime one of those "slip-fit" toshibas come in, the edge of the jack itself is broken and not the mount. I have been lucky enough to just have to tear apart the wire harness, put in a new jack, solder, heat shrink some tubing and put a blob of hotmelt for looks and done.
