Power connector internal pin broken - Anyway to repair charging port?
My dads Ux31a internal power connector broke when someone tripped over the wire such that the internal pin snapped. Any way to fix?
Hi @davidm71 ,
Here’s a link to a video that shows how to remove the motherboard in the laptop to gain access to the DC-In jack.
You will need soldering expertise and tools to remove/replace the part.
Replacement parts are available online. Just search for Asus UX31A DC-In jack part to get results for suppliers.
Please avoid the video above… If you’re looking to change the DC port, I followed this one instead… You don’t necessarily need to have a heat gun, but it sure helps… Leave the heat sink and fan on there (as per this video) else you’ll need to reapply thermal paste….
N.B. This isn’t my video… It’s just the one that shows you what you need to do…
