Replacing DC Power Jack on Fujitsu LifeBook P1610
I've always enjoyed dissecting gadgets to upgrade components, replace broken parts, or just to see what it looks like inside.
I recently had to replace the black DC power jack on my Fujitsu LifeBook P1610. I looked around and found a used yellow DC power jack from a Sony Vaio VGN-S150 series. No soldering required since the jack connects to the motherboard via wires and a plastic connector. The original jack was black and the wires were shorter than the yellow Sony jack, but the new jack worked out fine. It was a fun little project taking apart the mini tablet and replacing a broken part.
