I am working on a Toshiba Equium L20-197 laptop, Model PSL2ZE-001002CY. The center pin of the AC input socket has been pushed back, so contact cannot be made by the AC adapter plug. I have looked on the net for instructions on re-seating the socket. The only service manual I could find(http://tim.id.au/laptops/toshiba/equium%20l300%20satego%20l300%20satellite%20l300%20l305%20pro%20l300%20pslb0123.pdf) was for am L30 model, and shows a complete strip-down, removing the keyboard, top and mobo before exposing the AC socket. Please tell me there is another way. I have done alot of laptop repairs, dvd/network card/keyboard swaps, but never a display or complete disassembly.
BTW: I am not opposed to cutting the case. It appears that cutting a hole thru the side of the battery compartment or bottom might be easier than the mobo removal method from which I may never recover!

In order to repair it or hard wire it you are going to have to access the motherboard.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
