Laptop won't charge up any more? - Need to hold the plug to make it charge?

Power problems with your laptop? We can sort this out for a low cost of only £69.

Laptop power problems are usually caused by a faulty DC jack, power socket or damaged power connector pin, which keeps your laptop from recharging or powering up.

Laptop power connectors can become broken or work loose when the power cable is inadvertently tugged or repeatedly pulled, as this places strain on the dc power socket which can eventually cause damage. @Home PC Laptop Repair specialises in repairing laptop power connector and broken dc jack problems.

We can repair loose dc sockets, sockets with broken centre pins, even dc jacks that have completely snapped off by re-soldering or replacement of broken power sockets / dc jacks. Low cost with quick turnover service
