Dell Insprion 1100 power jack negative positive pins? Answered
I was given a Dell inspiron 1100 with the charger and as I went to pull out the power cord from the the power jack at the back the wires ripped leaving the end of the plug still in the power jack at the back. I removed the end part and am now trying to figure out what pins of the 3 are what.It is a 3 pin jack all them are numbered 1,2 and 3.My problem is when the wires ripped out they left no evidence of what goes where when I tried to put them back in..Another problem is that the cord from the adapter only has 2 wires,centre and one around it,so two pins must be the same?.I placed smaller wires into the connection pin holes and glued it so later on its easier to connect them up to the cord as the wires from the cord are thick and too hard to get back in the end connection.
Can anyone please help me identify the 3 pins?
