My charging port is faulty on Acer Aspire 5 - Model N19H2 / A514-52-582Y

Can i use the USB C port to charge it ?

Alternatively this looks like a solder job to replace it - Any ideas where to purchase a new one

I know its the port as used 3 different chargers it sometimes works but the charger just falls out easily

Thank you for any help

    No, you cannot charge your model laptop with a USB-C charger, trying that will damage the USB-C port(s) and motherboard. I recommend bringing your 2020 model laptop to Acer Services in your country to replace the DC power port and not try to repair or solder in the laptop.

    To find out if the dc port is shorted, turn off the computer and disconnect the lithium battery. Then, set a multimeter to the continuity scale. Touch the positive red tip to a USB port and the negative black tip, touch the positive pin of the dcin:

    If the multimeter beeps, the dcin is shorted.

    The port works just inside its worn slightly broken and needs replacing

    The charger just falls out when you plug it in but works if you hold it in

  • I recommend desoldering this connector, so that there is no risk of causing a short on the board. Ideally, you should send the laptop to be repaired.
