Hi, the jack plug where i plug my charger lead in in the back of my laptop is totally buggered, it doesnt charge propperly and i have to fiddle around with the wire to 1 in 10 chance of actually getting it to work.
If i take it to a shop to get it repaired as its not covered under warranty, does anyone know how much it would rougly cost to get repaired?
need to know whether it worth repairing the laptop or buying a new one as this one is a piece of crap and is ALWAYS breaking lol
hi, yes most shops will be able to replace it I own two computer shops the one in East London we charge £55 for that the one in Greenwich we charge £85 for the same thing, it varies from area to area, so i think if you are in a poor area its cheaper, it doesn't need a professional or anything to do it, most so called engineers can do it, we buy the socket from ebay for £5 so if the workshop wants to charge you a lot just for the part say you can buy the part yourself from ebay for £5. so I say never pay more than £90 for a dc socket replacement "not repair"
As above you mean the Jack Socket, the plug is the bit that fits in it. Will not be cheap as the Laptop as to be striped down and thats what costs, unless it need a new motherboard. that will push the cost up even further
