Laptop Repair: DC PowerJack replacement

Laptop Repair: Dell Precision 5510 DC PowerJack replacement

This Dell Precision 5510 needed a new DC Powerjack after some wear and tear from over the years. After using my multi-meter I determined that the battery was not getting enough charge because the DC jack was just too damaged to make a good connection to charge the battery.

This type of repair should only be attempt by experienced techs with proper tools.
