Hello,

My laptop fall down and it seems that some of its jack were broke down. I cannot afford buying a new laptop, is there a possibility of replacing just the hitted parts?

you need to tell us what jacks broke. and how do you know what broke? did a technician tell you that it was broke for sure? can it power on at all?

My laptop has a loose power connector. I should open it up and solder it back in place sometime...

I didn't know there would be a whole site for the sale of these things :blink:

If just the connectors were broken (or more likely, just dislodged from the mobo) it's an easy repair.

There's no need to buy a new one, you can buy only DC power jack. I hope only the jacks broke down and not any inside electronics!
Many thanks for that way cool link!!!!

@joan_toko As far as just the "hitted parts", Maybe... if your lucky it's just the connector... if the circuit board is cracked.... then outlook is not so good.

Also if you've never soldered... don't let this be your practice :whistle: . Buy some cheap kit and assemble it to learn.

Another skill you need to practice (again not on your laptop) is de-soldering... Very critical to get the bad parts out of the way.

Do they sell othe kinds of jacks or just DC power jacks?

Only the power jack it seems... but most of the other connectors e.g. VGA out etc. are standard types you can find in other electronic component stores.

If more than just the DC power jack were hitted you may consider taking it to a lab.
Umm... lab?
