DC power receptacle for Acer 3000 laptop

  1. I believe I have an Acer laptop with a bad DC power receptacle. The
    power adapter is providing the proper voltage(19Vdc); however, when I
    connect to the laptop circuit board (which I have removed from the
    laptop), the solder points of the receptacle to the circuit board show
    no volts.

    There are no apparent dicrepancies seen on the receptacle. The power
    receptacle's negative spring contact appears to be in working order
    though there is evidence of wear. All solder connections look good, no
    burning, cracks, or bad welds.

    The plan is to remove and replace the receptacle. However I don't have
    the part number nor a manufacturer name the would suit a good
    replacement. Does anyone know of a company that would sell or provide
    a new receptacle? I will use 63/37 solder to resolder the new
    receptacle.

    Search Ebay with the model number. I have regulary found exact
    replacements for not much money compared with the laptop jack
    replacement "specialist" web sites.
