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 hp pavilion dv6700 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.
You are very lucky the notebook did not bounce!
Yes a small amt of wiggle is normal. I would advise against "checking" it too much. (Applying more wiggle may not help the situation)
If at some future date you experience issues with keeping power connected, you will know what to check first. I think you'll be fine.
Your notebook may be fine. You should check your power cord for any cuts or breaks. The power cord may have gone bad. You can check by feeling if it gets warm when plugged in. If not, you will need a new power cord.
Test your voltage on your power supply...There should be a voltage amount on the sticker on your power supply telling the output.Make sure yours is putting out the right amount.If this test good,your probally looking at a bad dc jack.Jacks need to be checked by a certified repair person.....Goodluck......If this is helpful ...Be so kind as to give a testimonial.....Thank you
I would start with the AC jack. Plug the power cord into the jack and see how much it wiggles. If it does wiggle, try to see if the jack is wiggling inside the computer. HP had a huge problem with the ZD7000 models, the AC jack would break free from the soldering on the motherboard. Solution at that time was new motherboard! Since then you can now find folks to fix the motherboards.
But this also could be the power adapter. Is there a light on the adapter? You could check for power with a multimeter.
