Compaq R4000 Power Issue

\015 Hi. Appreciate any advice. The past 2-3 days I wake up to an "off" computer when I know I left it on. When I try to boot up the laptop the computer appears to be dead, no lights, nothing. I cannot start it up.\015\012I started doing some tests. I have found when I start playing w/the cord I can get a front charge light. then I quickly push the on button and it boots up. So, when I move the computer, it can quickly just die. Totally off. I thought it was the power cord, but now I'm thinking it's not. So, I ran a test. I checked the battery and it said 100%. I moved my laptop (which includes the cord) and it died. I think it's a power problem, some where near the power cord inlet. Anyway to fix myself. Thank you all.\015

I have a r4010US. I was having the same exact problem with my laptop. It would only charge if I the power cord in just the right angle, it would turn off if moved, and it was driving me nuts. I bought a new power supply off eBay and it didn't work at all. I then figured it was the power jack, so I took apart the laptop and started looking at the jack. It seemed to be fine so I put the laptop back together and th same thing happened. This time just for the heck of it, I cut the end off of the old power supply. I was shocked, all of the little wires were frayed away and broke from where the cord and tip of the connector joined. I took off the plastic barrier from the power supply i bought from ebay and took a bunch of the wires from it and wrapped them around the tip of my old power supply and then wrapped it with electrical tape then duct tape. Walla my computer works like a charm again! don't know if I was sold a **** power supply off ebay, or if the r400 is just picky, but my jerry rigged power supply works great and solved th problem.
Poor deb---

are you referring to the fan assemblies that go all the way across the back , including over the jack? It comes out in one piece, there are screws at the forward and kind of hidden and hard to get to without completely disassembling the entire thing. I think you'll see that the little piece that comes up and over the jack is part of the fan assembly.

The hp website has a service/hardware manual that has blow-apart illustrations in it...that's how I found it, and you will too.
