DC Jack burnt motherboard

by Steve Smith

Hello, the DC jack on my laptop burnt the copper sleeve on my motherboard and can't make a connection. I read the repair under #48 and had a few questions.

#1. What type of wire do you use to make the bridge?

#2. Where on the motherboard can I solder that wire?

Appreciate your help

This wire should be not too thin but not too thick to bend it and route it between soldering points. Sometimes I use a wire that comes with PC speakers or so called magnet wire. A USB wire is also good if it is thick enough.

I can't tell you right now where to solder because I need to know what laptop model this is.
Usually it is a DJ Jack's central pin and a copper pad near by.
