There is no specific link to a manual that shows how to do this.
Its a rare failure that needs pro. service.

Replacing a power jack is very simple.
You remove the motherboard.
You unsolder the old jack.
You solder in the new jack.
Then reassemble the laptop.

It wouldn't be in the manual anymore that how to replace a capacitor or transistor would be.
It's out of the scope of the manual.

For an electrician?
Yes.
But for a non electrician?
Mabey.
But first you have to open the laptop, which can be complex, so my guide is of great help.

Other than being accused of being an electrician, I don't have much objection to that.
Not sure how you can claim a link to someone else's work as YOUR guide though.

Thankyou for correcting my "broken English", I live in Japan & only "speak / use Japanese" daily so my English is sometimes incorrect.

Should have read:

I was only mentioning my assistance to the question.

You are a Lecturer in English Literature and write in broken English?
Anyway, I wasn't objecting to a split. I guess I also wasn't understood.

I retired from teaching / working 7 years ago at the age of 40.
Speaking / using several Asian languages has made my British English "rusty".
I dont mind either way about the points split, as I do this to help others / myself too, in furthering / spreading knowledge.
As these comments remain for all to see, I just wanted to clarify my mistake.
Regards
