Say “Hello” again everyone. Today, friend asked me to fix his notebook DELL XP series. He said “It was not charging when connected to the charger”. I have checked it out and see that the power supply connector on the DELL is broken ( May be kicked by his son while it was charging). As the DELL charging is designed in a special way. There three difference contracts (+, – and sensor in the middle), so when the middle plastic part is broken and you plug the charger in the + pin are bended and touched the middle pin, make it multifunctional. I have check the repair price about $200 (too expensive). So, how i fixed this problem this problem by less than 1$ price?? follow me .
Problem: DELL XP’s Power supply connector is broken.
Below: left shown the broken connector, right shown the original connector
Close look at the round part at the middle of the connector. how to fix!!
Step 1 : find a “Straw” that about to fit into the connector then cut it approximately 6 mm.
step 2. put it in the middle of the connector as shown below (Be careful leave only sensor pin inside the straw)
step 3 optional : put some super glue in to make permanently placed.
I finally try it with the charger. it works!!
It takes 5 minutes to fix this problem.. let try if you have the same problem and do not want to spend a couple of hundred dollars. This is just an idea. however, you can adapt it in your way.
