Question about Compaq (480082-001) ( 480082-001 ) Power Supply
I bought a new charger but I think something is loose on the inside of the laptop because the charging light just flashes. Help please!
I had a similar issue with the Armada M700 from Compaq. Never did figure it out exactly. But I do know this. When you unplug the power chord and take out the battery and plug the power chord back in while the battery is out usually for some reason it turned on allowing me to replace the battery which would then begin charging. Your problem interests me because I can really relate!

SOURCE: Loose battery cord
As a tech I have seen this too many times! But good luck use it while you can, but at one point it'll be a 40 minute battle to check get it on just to check your email... Hm.. 3 routes... Replace the power jack, buy one with a bad screen, no hard drive, or memory and use it to charge your battery (very inconvenient), or buy something else and be very careful with the jack
Good luck though

You might be able to replace the jack easily enough. I am not sure what model you have, but some Compaq laptops have modular jacks, meaning they can be replaced instead of having to be repaired or having to replace the entire motherboard. I would recommend you do this or have someone qualified to do this beucase if you leave it as-is then you might burn something out on your Motherboard.

I had the same problem on my CQ60. HP battery test showed one or more cells not working. After spending about 2 hours talking to some guy in India,or somewhere, he came to the conclusion that my battery was bad. HP sent me a new battery, which fixed the problem.
