POWER JACK REPLACEMENT
We responded to a service call today to replace the power adapter port on a Dell Inspiron 15 (model 7568). Upon initial inspection, it was clear that the power port had broken off inside the laptop case and was dangling loose. Any attempt to plug in the adapter just pushed the adapter around inside the laptop shell.
One cheap replacement part and 15 minutes was all it took to get this laptop back up to speed. We had to use a bit of glue to secure the mounting hardware that snapped off inside the laptop case, but it was a relatively straightforward job, overall.
