Could I fix a power adapter socket on the logic board?
I took apart my powerbook g4 15" HR (A1138) for the first time when I was having problems with a very noisy right fan. When I put my logic board back in, I wasn't exactly gentile. I broke the power adapter socket on the left part of the board. One of the prongs is missing and the others are out of place so you can't put the plug in. How could I replace this socket and where would I get the parts?
It can most likely be fixed but first I need to know exactly which book you have. Would you give the last three letters of your serial number (located in the battery compartment)? Then I can direct you to the correct repair guide so you can identify which part you may have broken. Would you tell us what it's doing or not doing and why you think it's broken?
G4 Aluminum 15" 1.67 GHz DC & Sound Card is the DC Jack/sound card part for the A1138.
Is the part that is broke on the DC/Sound part of the board or on the logic board itself?
