  1. Hi,

    Let me apologize in advance for not knowing ANY of the proper
    terminology to describe my problem!

    I have a Cyberhome CH-LDV 712 portable DVD player with a broken DC
    adapter 'socket' (the recepticle on the side of the unit that the
    travel DC adapter plugs into). The plug itself is a 'standard' shape
    (a hollow cylinder). What broke was the little post inside the socket
    that fits into the hollow cylinder of the plug.

    I'd like to replace the socket, which is soldered onto a very small
    circuit board.

    Here is the best description I can give of the socket itself:

    1) It is a small black plastic brick
    2) It measures 9mm Long by 6mm Wide by 5mm High
    3) The opening for the plug is 3mm in diameter, and located on the Wide
    dimension (i.e. the 'side' of the brick)
    4) There are three conductors soldered to the circuit board. All three
    conductors are arranged in a straight line on the 'bottom' of the
    brick, on the opposite end of the brick from the opening for the plug.
    5) There are two small plastic posts which extend through the circuit
    board from the 'bottom' of the brick on the socket end of the brick
    6) The input voltage is listed as 9V = 2.2A
    7) The brick itself has no markings, but the circuit board has the
    following text: 'J1 LDV702 DC-POWER 15-307-260200'

    My desired outcome is to find someone who sells small electronics
    parts, and buy a replacement for the socket. The actual replacement of
    the socket looks like something I can do pretty easily, even with my
    limited skill with a soldering iron.
    How do I find a replacement part?

    Best Regards,

    David Montgomery

    Try Mouser Electronics. Catalog 617,page 612, "DGS DC Power Jacks".

  3. Hi Doug,

    Thanks for the response.

    I looked through the current catalog (#620), but didn't see a direct
    match.

    Should I unsolder the part to see if there is a part number hidden on
    the bottom? (I suppose it couldn't hurt anything at this point...)
    Best,

    David

    Hi David,

    Probably no number there. You could try to match it up with something
    close from the catalog. Or you could try Cyberhome (510-353-6099). They
    might have a parts or service dept. By the way, is the part actually
    broken or is it possibly just cracked loose from the board?

  5. Hi Doug,

    The part itself is broken. The little metal pin inside the jack is
    broken off (the kids put too much tension on the adapter plug while
    watching a Disney film in the car).

    Thanks for the Cyberhome number, I'll try it.

    Best Regards,

    David Montgomery

    Hi Dave,

    Just checked the new CES directory, and they have a different number
    listed. It's 510-226-2723.

    Good Luck,

    Doug
