    So my Dell Inspiron 15″ 7570 Laptop for a while has not been charging well via the AC connector and when the  AC plug is inserted into the laptop, it is loose and sometimes only charges if wiggled into position.

    So I decided to replace the Dell Inspiron DC Jack socket which I purchased via an online reseller.

    Note: Whole job took me about 15 minutes which was not complicated and cost just under £10.

    Steps:

    • Removed 10 screw from the Dell Inspiron back cover and gentle separated the cover from the main laptop chassis with a plastic leaver tool

     

    • Unplugged the battery from the motherboard power connectors (stops any damage (electrical shorts) whilst working) – ‘picture taken before battery was unplugged’

     

    • Located the DC Jack Socket and removed the single black retaining screw

     

    • Unplugged the DC Jack Socket power connector from the main circuit board.

    • Removed DC Jack Socket from motherboard by sliding it out of recess it was sitting in.

     

    • Then added new DC Jack socket and repeated above process but in reverse order.

     

    Also whilst the back was off the laptop, I decided to give the fan area a clean and remove all the dust etc, ‘yuk’

     

     

    AC connection to laptop is a good solid connection and no charging issue .

    All the laptops I had opened in the past had it soldered on a small print or directly on motherboard (what I can remember) and needed resoldering only.
    For me it’s unusual that even in your case as standalone plug it could go to fail.

    The DC Jack socket failure was my fault, A few times I accidentally got the AC cable trapped in my chair and when I moved from chair the trapped AC cable connector/Jack damaged the DC plug socket in laptop (got caught)   

    An easy repair and I was lucky the DC Jack Socket was easy to get at (no motherboard removal)

    Love my Dell
