I am replacing a power Jack for Sony VGN-FS742/w.  I have done power jack replacement before, so this is a stupid mistake.  When i removed the old one, I forgot to note down which color cable was connected where.  

Is there anyone that knows which color cable (Black/Red) goes where? Bottom of the Jack has a number 7 above it, so Im wondering if this points to the red cable.  

Thank you

This is the closest I can find to a pic that shows the red wire position for the VGN-FS models
Hope it helps. Just put your mouse over the pic and it enlarges automatically

Thank you,

As portrayed in the picture, 7 does point to the red cable. So the red cable goes to the connector under 7 marking on the Power Jack.
