Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv8000t Notebook ?

DV8000 power jack problem. Has no one solved this?

\015 Same problem as everyone else. Called HP. Told me to search online. Lame. Has NO ONE solved this? Has anyone tried replacing the internal dc power jack and cable?FYI, I noticed the jack itself heats up quite a bit as the connection gets worse and worse. I bent the pins back inside the black dc jack block and it bought me a few extra weeks.\015

Answers :

Hello,\015\012

You are speaking of the female power jack plugin...that is inside your laptop.\015\012\015\012

Ok first thing you would have to find a replacement power jack...ebay\015\012would be your best bet or a quick search on google might find a website.

If you can do that know in advance that you will have to take your\015\012laptop apart. Working on a computer can get complicated but a laptop is\015\012even harder.\015\012\015\012

If the first two things I mentioned is not a problem then the last\015\012thing is you will have to be pretty experienced at soldering. If the\015\012power connector is soldered onto the motherboard (always is) then you\015\012will first have to remove it without damaging the board itself.\015\012 Then you will have to be able to solder all the connections back on\015\012without getting any solder on the area around it as you will damage the\015\012motherboard.\015\012

Post back with any questions or comments. But what I'm getting at is if\015\012you can't do all those things then your only option is to go to HP's\015\012support site and email them to ask how much it would cost you to have\015\012them repair it.\015\012\015\012
