M3438G - A/C Power Problem

Postby T0MMY_B0Y » Thu Jan 31, 2008 6:39 am


Hopefully someone here can help. I have an Amilo M3438G (a little over 2 years old) and am having an issue with the A/C adapter.

When I boot using battery power it is fine.

When I boot from A/C it is fine until:

A) you slightly touch either the cable or the casing near the power input,
B) you adjust the angle of the screen,

When you do either of these it just shuts down immediately - will not just go to battery power.

If I boot up using battery power then adjusting the angle of the screen has no effect/problems so...I'm guessing it is something to do with the actual socket you plug the A/C adapter into? Is it possible to replace these easily?

This is a major problem as I use it for music and won't be able to do any live gigs with it in its current state. Argh!!! Help!
