Does your laptop dc jack suffer from any of the following?
- The DC jack (the place where you plug in your charger) is physically broken, but the laptop worked when the battery had charge?
- The DC jack area is slightly wobbly and seems loose?
- The laptop only charges in a certain position, but it is not very reliable?
- The DC jack has come off from the laptop altogether?
Predominantly, the laptop charges but only if you put it to charge in a very specific position and occurs on laptops which are over 1 year old due to wear and tear and also maybe misuse of the port.
