    Laptop Spare Parts/Sony Power Jack

    The power jack on my laptop has broken and I have to keep wiggling the wire about to keep it charging. I've found the part I need, A1186808A MS10 ASSY DC IN CABLE, but I can't seem to find any reasonable prices/stockists for it. I can get the jack itself off ebay, but I don't have any soldering skills so this seems the best bet as it has the cable pre soldered.
    Does anyone know of any good stockists for this type of part?

    How old is it? I'd start with the Sony Centre maybe?

    What about getting your local small PC repair shop to quote on soldering the part you're going to buy off eBay?

    It's around 2 years old. I don't think I have any Sony centers nearby, and I've a feeling they'd refer me to get a out of warranty repair (expensive!). I think the local PC shop is a good suggestion though and it will be my last port of call if I can't locate the part myself, I know my local one usually charges around £50 for such work. Thanks for the ideas :thumbsup:
