Hello
After replacing a damaged DC jack in a laptop, the laptop turns on just for 2 secs and then it turns off again. Might this be caused by a bad soldering of the DC jack? Actually I do not think I could have pushed the DC jack's legs further into the corresponding motherboard's holes.
Any idea?
Thanks

Take the battery out and see if it boots at all.

I suspect you failed to get the jack connected to the proper lan or layer in the board.

Sorry,
in my last post I meant
"Actually I COULD have pushed the DC jack's legs further into the corresponding motherboard's holes but it was very late when I noticed this because I had already soldered it to the mother board."
As for your comment, whether I use just the plug without the battery or with the battery, the effect is the same, it turns on for just two seconds and after that it turns off. I do not even get to see anything at the laptop's screen.
Any other idea?
Thanks
