IBM Thinkpad R40 DC Jack

No matter how many times I stress that when the jacks start to fail, you should take it to the shop. With each delay and use the problem only gets worse and more expensive. Wiggling the DC Jack to make the positive side supply power to the board eats copper! Every time there is less surface pad left, and eventually you will totally eat all the surrounding copper making a 25 min job into a 1 hr job (or worse - unrepairable).

This jack nearly killed the motherboard which would require a replacement (expensive).

I cannot repair laptops for you via the internet, I can only answer questions related to posts. This is because I have not had experience on every motherboard that is out there. Bear with me.

If you do need it repaired. Contact me for quote (US/CDN Only)
