    Yes I can disassemble. I have had it apart but did not get all the way down to the circuit board. I cautiously backed out until I could get some feedback from someone that has done this. I'm thinking that the jack needs to be resoldered on to the board, is that what you have seen? Do you have any schematics or disassembly instructions?
    Thanks

    Hi Guy's,



    I am having the same problem with my presario r3000 and I have found that my power cord is fine by using a simple tester to test the continuity so this leaves the jack, just like it was with a lot of other people.



    That being said, how do I remove this jack to replace it, I have tried taking this thing apart from the back but I run into road blocks, Need help.

If you are good with a soldering iron, you can replace the Power Jack. For a replacement part, Google COMPAQ R3000 POWER JACK. You will find the part on eBay for about $6.

If you are not a soldering whiz, take either the complete machine or the system board to a repair shop. If you provide the part and the board to a shop, replacement cost should be failrly low.

After the Power Jack is replaced, reinforce it with a bit of 5-minute epoxy to prevent flexing.

Remember - Power Jacks usually break because of rough handling. Plug the cord straight in and pull it straight out, no twisting, no bending.

Good luck

My compaq is power on for 2 second and off , how to fix is thank you


You need to print this out-on someone else's computer. Hope it works for you!
Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Compaq Presario F700 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Compaq Presario F700 . This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your Compaq Presario F700 laptop on.

Boot in "safe mode". As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you'd like to start in safe mode. Highlight "safe mode" and press enter. See if your laptop is booting up ok .

If your Compaq Presario F700 boots ok, do the following,

Try System Restore first,
Start Menu->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore. Choose the most recent date before you the encountered problem. If it doesn't work, try the next date.

If System Restore does not fix it, as a last resort, you might need to fdisk, reformat your laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS, that usually fixes all bugs. Before going that route, try following,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program

DEFRAG C:

CHKDSK C:

Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your Compaq Presario F700 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your Compaq Presario F700 power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Compaq Presario F700 laptop battery charger, especially its power cord/cable, lifespan is limited and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like www.topmic.com

My r3000 has a tempermental power supply. it


whatabout the lead that plugs into the laptop ? does the plug in the laptop move easily, with the lead in, Sounds like the actual plug in the laptop is breaking away, the solder around the connector. Sadly to fix that you will have to get it repaired for about £50 to £70, maybe more ?? please make sure the lead from power supply is not loose or a bad fitting.

Right after the rj11 jack where you plug your landline in. You can follow the leads easy from the jack. Opposite side of the processor side.

My Compaq R3000 does not charge up


The problem might be the battery itself. Four years is a long time for rechargeables. Also, check if the error ocurs when the battery is not in the slot.

COMPAQ V2000 WILL NOT POWER UP WITH DC/ADAPTER OR BATTERY


Hve u tried a differnt adaptor , the adaptor might be blown too ,try replacing the adaptor , also check for the power cord if it has any kinks in it which may be interrupting the power supply , since the adaptor 18.5 v 3.5 a is the most common of all hp adaptors u should find one to try .

All kinds


It's the power connector on the motherboard, and the more you wiggle the connector on the cord to make contact, the more you damage the motherboard (from the sparks and heat).

There are a number of sites on the web that offer to fix that problem (it's probably the worst part of the design of any laptop) for prices ranging from around $75 to $200 - try this search to find someone you feel is competent:
