so i have a hpzd7020us with a bad ac power jack and i'm trying to get to the mother board to fix it and or replace it.. wonder if anyone has fixed this on their zd7020us?
my question is in looking at the service manual at 5.2 Disassembly Sequence Chart is that: do i need to remove everything listed previous to the steps for access to the system board to replace the jack or can i just start with 5.12?
wonder if anyone has done this and can save me time before go the long way and maybe i don't need to remove everything preceding the system board and go straight to 5:12 and follow those steps only.

i actually had no problem figuring out what was wrong, how to fix it and or how to do it... all i was looking for was if there was shorter way to do it in case someone had done it before. maybe someone would have said "yeah don't worry about this step" etc. but thanks for the replies!
