I'm having a issue with my Asus N550jv. I bought this laptop 4 years ago and the power jack is no longer working correctly.The only way to get the laptop to charge is to fidget with the jack until the charging light come on and then hold it in that position.
I thought the port would need replacing but upon sending my laptop to Asus they told me the mother board need replacing and would cost me over 700 Pounds!!
Obviously i refused the repair and paid the 45 for the return of the laptop.
once i got it home i went about replacing the port myself.However having taken the mother board from the body of the laptop i have tested the connection using my multi meter and the power seems to be flowing.
Anyone got any idea what the issue could be? If it was anything else other than the port itself would fiddling and putting pressure on the jack in certain positions ever help as it does in this case?
Thanks advanced for any help given
