If you are sure that you have to wiggle your laptop charger to let your laptop charge normally, it means your hp laptop power jack is loose or dead. Either you need to replace it or fix it.
While if you are good at tech and you have a good knowledge of laptop, you may fix the power socket by yourself based on the following instructions article:

SOURCE: vostro battery seems to have an issue

The battery may have died if it cannot hold a charge. It is also possible that the battery is not plugged in correctly to the back of the laptop. Follow these steps: Go to the Start/Control Panel/Power Options "Launch Power Manager" to see if the battery is recognized. This Power Manager has 3 tabs, and you can get quality information on your battery. If you can not see the battery levels, then the battery is either DEAD, or not plugged in all the way. Make sure that the battery is seated in the battery holder behind the laptop.

Your power connector on the laptop has been bumped too many times and the solder connection has worked it's way loose.. somewhat of a common annoyance. Find a good TV Repair shop, maybe a reputable PC repair shop and tell them to please resolder ( better to replace, but could cause rejection if they don't have a source for micro parts ) the connector back onto the motherboard.. could cost you $100 because of what it takes to access the location for a 1 minute solder job.. sad but true, sometimes, EVERYTHING in the laptop has to be removed to solder the connectors on the bottom side of the motherboard, sometimes you can get lucky with bottom side access. Get someone experienced in circuitboard soldering techniques. A hobbist will burn up more than what they are attempting to fix.

How do i fix a battery on a samsung tablet


The problem may be a frayed wire inside the charger cable right at the connector, or the charger jack may be worn or have a cracked solder connection. If it charges reliably with a different cable (such as a USB cable connected to the computer, it is probably the charger cable. If it has to be wiggled to get it to charge with a known good cable, then the charger jack should be replaced. This requires an expert technician; the solder connections are very small, and the circuitry requires special handling because it is easily damaged by static electricity.

HpG60 laptop charger port is not functioning properly, I have to wiggle the charger around when its connected to get a charge. I want to fix it because if i want to mobile with the laptop i need to make...


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues 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 a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

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

Hope this helps.

It wont charge im holding it right nw hoping it wont shut down help fast


If your laptop won't hold a charge and you need to hod the connection in order for it to stay on, you may have a power jack issue. The power jack on the laptop may have been moved around from moving the laptop while connected or wiggling around the connection, and needs to be re-soldered back on the motherboard.

Also, just before taking that step, try using a different or brand new charger. Sometimes the pin inside a charger might be bent or broken, therefore not making a proper connection with the power jack.

Hope this helps.

When I first switch on the new blackberry curve 8300 , the battery is not charging . The battery is not having voltage , around 0.7V. left it to charge for 24 hours , still the same. this is he first time...


there is some danger in charging a lithium battery once the cell voltage goes below a critical value .. so some chargers will refuse to charge such a battery .. you can "jump start" the battery if it hasnt been dead too long ... some special chargers do that ... they momontarilly force a voltage across the battery .. that gets the cell voltage above the critical value where the charger can kick in .. the charger will take over from there ... some people use a 9 volt battery connected momontarily across the lithium as a jump start .. but this is definatly not safe unless you know what you are doing ... if you reverse polarity or leave the battery connected too long then the lithium can overheat even explode .. once the battery is "jump started" then it should be monitored to make sure it doesnt get hot during charge .. if so you should replace the battery ... another possibility could be that your charger has a broken wire .. that usually happens right at the plug in connector ... if the charge light lights then thats not the problem ... if it doesnt or is intermittant as you wiggle the wire then thats a good place to start ..

LG shine wont charge


Zoe-

The charger port is going bad. It happens over time The symptom of this is you have to hold it into place.

The first step is to contact your carrier to see if it is covered under warranty. If it is, great get it replaced.

If not, you have 3 options:

1. you can get the charging port repaired. The cost is about 50 dollars. I recommend Cellulardr.com

2. you can get a new phone. cost ???

3.Youcan get an external battery charger to charger the battery separate fromphone. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you canhave one charging at all times. The best and cheapest place to buy a new charger for yourshine is ebay. They run about 5 dollars shipped. Check out thefollowing link for the selection.

Battery charging


All lead-acid batteries contain highly corrosive sulfuric acid, generate explosive gases and have warning labels which should be observed closely. For best results, charge the battery as soon as you know it is discharged. To charge your battery, follow these steps and important safety tips: Before Charging: 1) Read the charger manufacturer's instructions. 2) Put on protective eyewear, rubber gloves, work clothes and remove all jewelry. 3) Place the battery in a well ventilated area. 4) Don't charge a frozen battery. Allow the battery to warm to about 60?F before charging. 5) If applicable, remove the vent caps and check the battery's water level and, if low, add distilled water to cover the tops of the plates. Do not overfill. 6) To determine if the battery needs to be charged, test it with a hydrometer to determine its specific gravity and/or with a voltmeter to determine its state of charge. 7) If applicable, reinstall vent caps before charging. 8) While the charger is unplugged, connect the leads to the proper battery terminals. Note: For side-post and studded batteries, we recommend that you use adapters to insure adequate contact. For additional information regarding adapters, contact Interstate Batteries. 9) Set the charger to the proper settings for your battery, e.g. 6 volts vs. 12 volts, low-maintenance vs. sealed, standard automotive vs. deep cycle. 10) Plug in and turn on the charger. 11) Don't wiggle the connections to check contact while the charger is turned on or plugged in. 12) Choose the lowest amperage setting initially. Once the charger is on and the battery is charging, you may want to choose a higher amp setting to reduce charge time. During Charging: 1) Keep the vent caps on. 2) Don't allow smoking, open flames or sparks near the battery. 3) Don't allow the battery to become hot to the touch. After Charging: 1) Immediately after the battery is fully charged, turn off and unplug the charger. Continuing to charge a fully charged battery will severely damage the internal plates and shorten battery life. 2) Disconnect the leads from the battery.

Env help plz


The reason the phone won't charge is because the internal power port pins are broken off of their solder joints to the main board inside the phone. Wiggling it helps at first because the pins can still touch their connection points but after a short time that will cease to help. Google "cell phone repair". It usually cost around $50 to get it fixed with a new power port installed. Turn-around is usually 2-3 days.
