Why you must get a faulty IBM Thinkpad i Series laptop power jack repaired immediately
When the power jack connector fails it could also inflict damage to the motherboard. In some cases part of the circuit board around the socket may crack and even break off. Sometimes the conductive copper tracks (paths) come off the board or melt. In other cases the insulating material is burnt, which gives off a distinctive burning smell. These circuit faults may lead to short-circuiting of the motherboard in which case the complete motherboard has to be replaced which is much more expensive than simple power jack repair and replacement for your IBM Thinkpad i Series laptop.
