Removing a broken DC Jack

Laptop power problems are usually caused by a faulty DC jack, power socket or a damaged power connector pin, which keeps your laptop from recharging or powering up.

Laptop power connectors can become broken or work loose when the power cable is inadvertently tugged or repeatedly pulled, as this places strain on the DC power socket which can eventually cause damage.  PC PAL specialises in repairing laptop power connectors and broken DC jack problems.


Symptoms of a broken power socket (DC jack) include:

  • The backlight on your screen flickers whilst charging
  • Your laptop frequently changes from battery to AC power
  • Your laptop battery will not charge
  • The power socket (also known as DC jack and power socket adapter) is loose or broken
  • Your laptop will not power up at all


Contact us today if your laptop has any of these symptoms:

  • The backlight on your screen is flickering whilst charging
  • Your laptop suddenly changes from battery to AC power
  • Your laptop battery will not charge
  • The DC jack is loose or broken and requires repair
  • Your laptop will not power up at all (a dead laptop)



Not only will PC PAL get your laptop running again, we ensure that the replacement power connector that we fit is more resilient to day to day wear and tear ensuring that your laptop stays running.

We only use high quality DC jacks and use an epoxy resin to provide extra anchorage of the DC jack to the system board. Our goal is that you never have a laptop power problem again after our first repair.
