Replacing an AC jack pin on my laptop
Posted on 2011-05-12
I have a HP/Compaq 6720 laptop. The laptop was dropped and ever since the connection where the power cord plugs in is messed up. A slight wiggle of the connection causes the laptop to power off (battery is long gone.)
Should I consider replacing the jack pin? Is this complicated? I presume I would need to solder it , which I think I can hack, but was wondering what else I should be aware of before I dive in. I know I can get the AC pin connector itself from Ebay.
