The DC jack that the power pack connects to can sometimes pull loose from the circuit board and may need to be re-soldered.

Occasionally the connection pins break, in which case a new jack will need to be fitted.

When this type of problem happens the jack may feel loose and the power may sometimes cut on/off when the plug is moved in the jack.

Let me know if you intend to carry out the repair yourself or if you are looking to locate a repairer in your area.

Happy Holidays!
