Question about HP Pavilion ZV5000, ZV6000, ZX5000 Series 12 Cell Li-Ion Battery - DP390A (DP390A1) CD-ROM Drive
Like many others, the power connector broke. When i had this problem on my Compact Presario, i bought a port replicator that had an excellect power connector. i had hoped the Targus universal docking station would do the same but am told it will not power the laptop. Anyone know of a docking station or port replicator for this model that will power the laptop? i am seriously not into paying over $100 to get it fixed only to have it happen again...as so many others have done.
Nothing made by man lasts forever
find used parts on EBAY
buy them and be happy you fixed it.
after 10 years, new parts are not sold.
if it was desktopl, we can fix them all. standard parts there.
but not this PC.
yours has the crapppy power jack, direct soldered ! BS !
that means after flexing 10000 times, its fails. all do. no stopping that... unless.....
on my newer Elitebook it has cute flex cable that never fails. eg;
that leaves you 2 choices fix it or upgrade to better laptop or desktop
1: fix it with new mobo
2:fix it with new connector, takes skills , we pay for skills.
3: upgrade. to newer better hardware, ask. (hp8540)
this is what HP did to stop this failure.
when the jack move the wire flexes and not the frail
all good laptops use this, if not, its just a toy laptop.(throwaway)

SOURCE: I have an HP zv5000
At this point, you can't find any such cable, since it is outdated. The only thing I could suggest is try to disassemble the dock to remove the cable, the only problem is you would now need desk space to hold the computer...
