    Hi!

    Merry Christmas!

    I've got a Samsung NP550p5c laptop which is a bit..broken.

    I've gotten it from my brother-in-law and he had probably dropped it while the charger was connected.

    Does anyone have a clue on how it is supposed to look in the poweroutlet?

    It seems broken somehow and now there are just two small pins in the centre. Bit weird since the connector is female with a male connector inside.

    Attached some pictures of it.

    Any ideas/tips will be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    Best regards

    Judging by my Sammy NETBOOK... you seem to have lost a very thin plastic collar, that supports those two 'pins' - it MIGHT still be sitting in the connector which you plug into that 'hole'.

    Those two pins are used because they can be tensioned to press against the male 'probe', where-as a 'tube' would be loose

    Hope this makes sense...
