A guy next door brought me this laptop for repair. The laptop was completely dead and when he tried to charge it, something was wrong because it was not charging.

I believe it was the charging port because when I looked at it,

it was complexly broken and needed replacement.

The sweet thing about this charging port is; it does not need soldering to replace it. I just took it out and replaced it with a brand new one.

I bought a lot of charging ports off Aliexpress so I have plenty of them in the shop.

    Replacing these charging chassis power DC power jacks normally indeed require decent desoldering before a new jack can be inserted back into the mainboard. It can be done with hot-air desoldering and often requires insertion of the new jack while heating up the old solder in the meantime. This way avoiding having to clean out all solder from the vias and avoiding risking damaging their tracks or the mainboard multilayer tracks which often isn't easy and this way not necessary. And can be done with a good standard solder station too by using plenty of new solder.

      Albert:yes, I agree but in my case was just plug in and the repair was done. Not all laptops require soldering job when replacing the charging ports. some need soldering and other ones just sit in a special place and a socket. have a good day my friend.
