Power input broke - can it be replaced? Thanks.

My wife dropped her Chromebook while it was charging. It landed on the power cord connection portion. The tip of the cord bent pretty badly. I was able to bend it back into shape and was able to use it for a while. But yesterday some pieces broke off in the power input of the Chromebook.

I've had quite a few experiences replacing laptop parts. So I am not completely a novice.

My question is how would I go about replacing the power input? Is it one pieces or is it part of the motherboard?

Any help would be apreciated?

We have resoldered the center pin and had that fixed it in some cases if that's what you are talking about. The wave soldering leaves the power connections a little sparse on solder and a little flux helps. We have so many and the motherboards are getting hard to find!

Hi John Davies,

Don't the Chromebooks that you service have the plug in DC-In connector socket as per the links in the Chosen Answer below then?

Hi,

Here is a link to the Ifixit guide on how to replace the motherboard in an Asus Chromebook C201. This is handy as by using this you should be able to gain access to the DC-in socket in the Chromebook.

Asus Chromebook C201 Motherboard Replacement

Unfortunately the only replacement part that I can find is for an Asus Chromebook C200MA here which is identical to the DC-in socket for an Asus Chromebook C300 here which is the same as a DC-in socket for an ''Acer Chromebook C201 ''here so I suspect that all Chromebook DC-in sockets are the same.

You may wish to inquire with the seller whether this is the case or not. (these links are not a recommendation to use the seller only to show what the part looks like)

Hopefully this is of some help.
