I have an HP G60 series laptop. The charger port is very loose. It has been for a while now but now it has finally stopped working. I've tried wiggling it around to get it to charge but to no avail. But, when i plug in my brothers charger cord it works. So I'm not sure if I need to replace the port?

If you want it to work with the original charger, then yes, the worn out port would need to be replaced.

Note that the motherboard has to be removed in order to replace the soldered-on port.

Someone I know that had the same problem with his Toshiba laptop had BestBuy fix it, (solder in a new port), for $376.00 (USD). Personally, I would have just bought another laptop. <shrug>
