Replacing the Power Jack on my labtop

Hi I have problem with my hp/Compaq V2000(Does't TURN ON). It seems like the problem comes from the power jack. I'm just wondering if it would be hard to replace the power jack on my labtop. It costs me $200 to have someone replace it for me. I would like to try it myself. Any suggestion? Thanks. Ava

Re: Replacing the Power Jack on my labtop

Sepi, Here is the service manual for your laptop: You can probably get your replacement part from Ebay, I saw several listed. The real issue is probably going to be if you have the skills, tools and time to successfully disassemble, repair and reassemble your laptop. Expect to spend about 1 or 2 hours during the process. Be sure to protect the system board and other parts from static charges and slips of the screwdriver. Good luck and please don?t forget to rate this post.

The small rubber button on my compaq presario V2000 isn't working. When I open the screen of my laptop the light on the screen will switch on for just a moment, and then switch off. How can I fix it so the...


The most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

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

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 is the Maintenance and Service Guide, (Really a Service Manual), for the Compaq Presario V2000 Series Notebook PC's,

It's a download page for the Maintenance and Service Guide, from HP Support. (As you know HP bought out Compaq)

Left-click on -
Compaq Presario v2000 Notebook PC, HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook PC, HP Compaq nx4800 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

(Last file in the list)

This is a PDF file. (The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files)

After you click on the link it may take up to 24 seconds to see the first page. The file is downloading in the background.
(First page usually comes up faster)

After you see the first page, the file may still be downloading. (Blue download progress bar)
I advise letting it fully download, before looking through it.
You may break the download connection otherwise.

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.

Compaq V2000 overheats at power-in plug.

Sounds like the power jack has a short and needs to be replaced.If it melted the ac adapter tip then its a ground problem in the power jack or where it connects to the mother board.

Laptop dead Compaq / new dc jack

Does the hard drive have to be in for the power to go on? NO
