Power supply won't connect

Hi

The post inside my laptop that the power cord goes onto doesn't seem to make a connection anymore. If you put something in there you can see that the post moves around pretty freely so it must have either broken or come loose. Is there a way for me to fix this or do I need to find a repair centre?

Thanks!!

After you take apart the laptop, if it is just a loose connector, you should be able to just solder it back in place.

I have this happening to my Toshiba again - third time since I began using it in December 09. Going to try the workaround to see if I can avoid buying yet ANOTHER power supply. Thanks!

Using Toshiba Satellite Radius 14 and worst laptop ever. Power cord doesn't keep connection after 1 year and on their website they want $55! The screen broke on one side at 7 months when your supposed to be able to make a tablet, never again.
