Power Flicker on Laptop (Philips X53)

The power keeps flickering on my Philips X53, in the past I’ve gone for the time honoured tradition with older laptops of the “Cable Wiggle”, but on this occasion that doesn’t seem to be the problem!

The DC pin inside appears to be loose – to the point where I can wiggle it up and down with a pen. Clearly this is on the otherside of the motherboard so probably a heft job to replace, anyone who has done this on a Philips X53 / Freevents, please get in touch below!
