Y410 Power / DC Jack

After few years of use, the dc jack on my Y410 finally came loose. I tried to continue to use it by opening up the back and push the loose jack outward while plugging in the power, and that worked for a few weeks. Now, I can see one of two cables that used to connect to the jack is completely detached.


So I guess my question is ... am I assuming correctly that if I just connect the loose cable, I can at least get the laptop to continue to function. Or, as I've been reading almost everywhere that I should either try to (get someone to, at least) replace the motherboard or solder the jack back onto the mother board?


Any response would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

Re: Y410 Power / DC Jack

the jack is a detachable unit, so it attaches to the motherboard through the two wires, which you can remove and replace, if they are broken.


I think the Y410 is made by ASUS, as they seem to use the same adapter.
