Can I replace a broken soldered-in DC jack on laptop, with a DC jack cable connector with harness? Please help! Answered
This is for an Asus K53E laptop. I tried to remove the bad dc jack, but I've given up. Since I cracked part of the MB/circuit board where it is soldered in, I'd like to know if I can connect a dc jack that uses a cable harness instead? I already have removed an ethernet port on the laptop, so I have a slot to insert a new jack.
My thinking, is that this would plug directly into the MB, instead of the plug that is soldered into MB, and then I can charge my laptop again! My other option is to buy an external battery charger, but those run about $70 and the harness is only $12.
Is there anyone that can tell me if this will work? Please? :)
