    Hi guys!

    My Toshiba has a problem. I need to wiggle the charger to make it work! Then one day, it won't charge anymore. I diassembled my Laptop to get my DC-IN Jack to figure it out why. Luckily, it is removable :worthy: . Then i discovered that the DC-IN Jack has a problem. I want to buy one but, it's not available in our country and no shipping is available here. Then I see 4 wires. 2 Red and 2 Black. Then 2 Red wire are interconnected and the 2 Black wires connects each other too. Then I was thinking, to do McGyver and Modify it to connect it into another DC-IN plug that is not same with the old one. So my question is, is that possible?

    Ty.

    Check the voltage of the charger you are charging now and were charging, if it differs for ~2V then it's quite risky you can burn internal charging circuit after some time, or charger. :)
    Sorry if I misunderstood, but I understood that you made DC-IN with larger diameter jack, and by my logic you are using another charger. :)
