Laptop not charging repair is a repair that involves repair of the charging circuit or a charging port of Laptops. There are a couple of possible faults causing this issue, all depending on what happened to the Laptop. Often in our workshop in Adelaide, we see Laptop not charging fault being caused by a damaged power jack or faulty USB-C connector.
USB-C type connectors are similar to phone charging sockets, internally. However, dimensions vary a lot between different models, more than the regular power jacks. Which delays sometimes turn around on these repairs as we need to source the correct power jack. Otherwise, jack may not fit or may have different internal dimensions.
Symptoms requiring Laptop not charging repair could be:
- Laptop not charging Repair
- Laptop is not turning on Repair
- Laptop charger is not working Repair
- Laptop charger is not charging Repair
- Black screen on Laptop Repair
- Blinking Orange light on Laptop Repair
Laptop not Charging Repair Cost
The repair cost depends on the type of fault and can vary from $200 for a simple power jack replacement to $600 for substantial electronic failures on high-end laptops. In most cases, we quote based on our experience and known common faults in particular models.
If the quote is within the customer’s budget, we book for a diagnostic (Fees Apply).
While we repair it if we notice more issues that require price change. We call the customer and ask for their permission for the cost change.
If it is outside of their budget – we cancel the repair (Diagnostic/Repair Attempt Fees Apply)
Laptop Power Jack Repair
In most cases, Laptop not charging repair is required when there is a damaged charging port.
Therefore, a faulty power jack can be a regular jack, as shown above. Which is easier to source and replace. In other cases, it is soldered to the board and desoldering is required.
Laptop USB-C Jack Repair
Laptops with USB-C type chargers have their connectors soldered to the mainboard. These charging ports come as part of the laptop board and require soldering. It is a finicky repair as we work with small components having 24 pins. Mostly these are not through-hole components and require precision soldering.
Laptop charging chip issues
Quite often also we receive laptop which has electronic failure causing the system to do not charge. This often can be caused by a damaged USB-C type connector that has shorted a charging circuit. Or even can visibly blow a component on the board, as seen on this HP ENVY above.
In situations like these, we need to perform a Laptop Motherboard Repair and replace the faulty chip or component. Additionally, we also need to replace the charging port, otherwise, we risk damaging the newly replaced chip if we try to charge it.

Repaired, not Replaced!
We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the repairability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Laptop Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Laptops having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Laptops we repair. Check some of our Laptop Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.
That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 1000$ or even 500$ today by repairing our faulty Laptop is great. That’s an extra half Laptop cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned Laptop from polluting our one and only Planet.
