Hi. My Asus G752 had recently been on the charging fritzes. I thought it was just the plug; if i rotated and applied pressure it'd charge. Eventually i noticed the plug heating up; i thought nothimg of it until today. The heat from the DC jack apparently melted the plastic on my plug and melted the rubber so hard it was permanantly bent. I realized this was not normal and shut it down. How do i prevent my G752 from turning into a blast furnace.

It sounds like you might need a new charging brick and cable. Was there ever any undue force applied to the plug and socket connection? Wires inside the plug may be broken, but the problem could also be in the socket in your laptop. Something isn't making good contact there, and it might be arcing which is causing the overheating. Other than an RMA which may or may not fix the problem, I would recommend an inspection of the parts involved. May need some cleaning. You might also try some dielectric grease on the fittings. Use a toothpick and place a small amount inside the charging cable barrel plug and insert, twist, and withdraw several times. Good luck.

I tried the port with 2 different bricks. One had been giving me problems for some time, but the other was used exponentially less, making me think it's the PC itself.

The DC-IN board has the "port" as you call it. Simply replace it and the power brick, or not, it's your choice.

Sorry if that hurts your feelings, you ask for solution and I provided answer. I researched part numbers and source. This is a common problem with the DC-IN port on the side of many laptops. Replacement will require teardown of the laptop and removal of the motherboard. If I were you, I would also replace the battery while doing this repair. Better still, take it to a local repairman for the work.

Look up the teardown video of your model on You-Tube.

If you continue to use your laptop with this problem, your motherboard will become toast.

Good Luck

Thanks for the help. One last question; is it safe to use a wire plug that's had the plastic cap melted or not?

As I have already said:

That is why i'm getting the DC jack replaced. My question is do i need to replace the brick that has had damagw to the plastic ring on the metal plug in?

If it was my laptop I would replace the power brick. Note the two part numbers above. Check out Ebay with P/N.

Don't forget the battery, while you are having the DC-IN board replaced you should also have the battery replaced.

And that was the end of my G752. Fried the motherboard, too costly to repair.

Goodnight, sweet prince.
