Lenovo G510 broken power jack? Dead computer?

Hi!

I recently got my hands on my friend's old laptop that hadn't been used for a year. The problem with the G510 was the power jack. It was pushed back and repaired multiple times by professionals but still didn't completely work.

I thought that if i bring the power jack outside the laptop it would work. But it doesn't. I plug in the charger and nothing, no led lights no fan no sound. The same charger worked on another computer.

So i removed the power jack and i saw no external problem with it. I don't have a multimeter. Next i thought the power jack doesnt really cost much, but then again, the shipping costs would be overwhelming and i can't afford it at the moment.

I also tried turning it on with only one memory card, done the 30second thing, charging without battery in case the problem was there but still nothing. The silence is killing me.

Could there be any way to charge the battery outside the laptop? Or do you have any other ideas i could try?

Hi whyisthisbroken,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

You can try to look for something like this external battery charger compatible to the battery part number.

If you are sure that it is just the dc in port and cable, maybe looking for a refurbished model or via dc in port part number locally can be an option.

 

Regards
