Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook ?

The prong where I plug in my battery charger broke off in my laptop. What can I do?


Answers :

This is the DC Power Jack. Aslo known as the DC-IN jack.

You'll have to have it replaced.

IF, this is a reference to a Compaq Presario V2000 Series Notebook PC, (The exact Model Number, is on the bottom of the laptop in a white Service Tag),
the DC Power Jack is soldered directly to the motherboard.

The DC Power jack resembles this one,

[At the top of the page you can click on the multiview (Three views shown), to enlarge it]

You can see the size of the jack. Not much larger than the AC adapter,
(Charger), plug.
The rectangular dark body of the jack is made of plastic. The metal center pin is riveted to the body.

This shows you the inside of your laptop. Shows you how various components are removed, and installed.

[Tells you about Static, and how it's harmful to your computer, therefore before diassembling the computer, you should take appropriate measures. ESD wrist s-trap. Price is around $6]

Included this file download link in case you are curious about the inside of your computer.

To repair, or replace, (IN your case it would be replace), the tech has to,
1) Wear an ESD wrist s-trap, and have the alligator clip attached to a good ground source. [Electro Static Discharge]

The human body carries Static electricity. Static wil fry out the delicate hardware components inside a computer. (Laptop or desktop)
Can do it in less than the blink of an eye, and you won't see it, or feel it.

The ESD wrists-trap helps to prevent this. (It works, trust me. IF, you have the alligator clip attached to a good ground source)

A multi-compartment container is used for the various areas the screws come out of, and the various screws. There are over 60 screws, and 12 different types. Some look the same, but they Aren't.

2) The laptop must be Completely disassembled down to the bare motherboard in hand.
No Processor, Ram Memory, Wireless module, Harddrive, Optical drive, (DC/DVD drive), and other hardware components, can be attached to the motherboard.

Bare motherboard.

3) The DC Power Jack, (DC-IN), is unsoldered from the motherboard, using careful desoldering techniques.
The new jack is then soldered in using careful soldering techniques.
(Very few techs are qualified to do this anymore. They just want to replace the motherboard)

4) Then the laptop is reassembled, power sources are attached once more, and the laptop is tested.
