Hello and Welcome to BC
The cost of the DC power jack is relatively cheap. Unfortunately, it require a complete dismantle of the laptop and specialized soldering tools to replace it on the system board. I would recommend a local repair shop instead of a Geek Squad type of shop. I've seen prices between 50-80 dollars.
It sounds like when it's apart you should have it totally gone over and cleaned up
why won't my laptop work?
Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
