I am making a guide to explain in detail how to replace a charging port on a Toshiba Satellite A505-6005. While iFixit has many guides up, I was unable to find one that matched the design of the laptop I chose to work on. I believe that this guide will help expand on the vast knowledge that is already available, and will enable many consumers to save money and have success when replacing a charging port. This is a necessary repair because without a way to charge the battery, the laptop will soon be rendered useless with the power supply runs out. To avoid damage to hardware it is strongly recommended to take your time and move slow. This is because the components are small and fragile. As far as safety goes, the only risk comes from opening the system up if there is still power running through the system, this is avoided by removing the battery before you begin. It is strongly recommended to use labeled bowls to place the screws you removed. This is to avoid losing screws or having screws leftover after reassembling the laptop.
