Most likely there are two wires a + and - power wires.
If you strip the broken ends of the wires on the plug and the end of the broken cable then you can solder the broken ends of the wire together. make sure the colors of the wires match and the wires are insulated so they do not short against each other.

SOURCE: won't Boot, power cord bad or perhaps female

It is most likely the female jack your adapter plugs into. Many laptops can have this port break if the laptop is put into a bag, etc with the power chord attached. Since it is attached to the main board itself, this is very hard to fix. Some vendors however will cover it under the manufacturer's warranty.

SOURCE: My dog chewed my power cord. Dh

ask the dog.....!!!
ok sorry jokes apart...

was the battery working before ur dog helped u out...
remove the power cord and check how long ur battery can hold on till it dies down...when ur notbook is ON

if it holds for more than 10 mins then the battery will charge if the power cord gives it enough power to charge, else u may have a power adaptor that gives enough for notebook to work but not enough for the battery to charge at the same time....
u may have to change both the adaptor and battery....or else change the dog...ha ha ha...
u r the best judge....ask the dog to do some work on it may be......
just kidding....

My compaq presario cq62 wont turn on i bought a new power chord but it still does nothing


Shane, new power cord? Does this mean the old one was bad?

Do I assume you used a multimeter;
1) To test the voltage output of the AC adapter (Charger),

2) And had an assistant gently wiggle the cable TO laptop, and power cord TO AC adapter; to see if there was an intermittent reading on the multimeter?

[The Center Hole on the plug end of the AC adapter cable TO laptop, is the Positive connection. The outer cylindrical metal shell of the plug, is the Negative connection.
You should be reading 18.5 Volts DC.

An economical multimeter can be purchased for as little as $5 to $12. Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example. I have seen them on the checkout aisle racks, of large discount stores.

The Positive (Red) probe lead is inserted into the multimeter, in the Red hole that has DC Voltage next to it. (DCV)
The Negative (Black) probe lead is inserted into the Black hole ( - )

The Function knob is set to DC Voltage. If just a symbol, the symbol is a dotted line over a solid line.
IF there is more than one DC Voltage scale, the Function knob is set to the 0 - 50 Volt scale. { 0 to 50 ]

AC adapter checks OK?
Then check the DC Power Jack.
The DC Power Jack is the jack on the laptop, that the cable from the AC adapter is plugged into. (DC_IN)

AC adapter removed, ('Natch), and Battery.
Use a No.2 pencil, and it's eraser, to see if you can gently move the Center Pin, in the DC Power Jack.
ANY perceptible movement means replacing the DC Power Jack.

However good news. The DC Power Jack is NOT soldered directly to the motherboard.
It is a DC Power Jack that has wires coming from it, and the wires end in a small white plug.
This assembly is called a DC Power Harness,

All you have to do is partially disassemble the laptop, unplug the DC Power Harness plug from the motherboard, and replace,

http://www.amazon.com/Harness-COMPAQ-Presario-Pavilion-Series/dp/B004SFQA7U

USE AN ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case.

You can also set a large metal serving plate (Unpainted), on the table you are working on, and connect to it.
Or a large metal knicknack. (Unpainted)

Use a mutli-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws.
Advise do NOT mix them up.

AC adapter checks out, DC Power Jack checks out?
Check the Power On switch.

The Power On switch is pressed with the Power On Button.
The Power On switch is part of the Power Board,

This part separates the user from the tech. There are 6 wires in that flat cable. (I believe 6) There are 6 contact pins in the motherboard connector, for those 6 wires. TWO of those contact pins turn the laptop on. A tiny flat tipped Jewelers screwdriver, is used to MOMENTARILY touch the two contact pins.

{The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch }

Laptop comes on you have a bad Power Board.

Laptop does not come on;

One or more Power MOSFETs may be bad, and may include bad Ceramic Capacitors (MLCC) for the Power MOSFETs.

Compaq Compaq Presario CQ62 white screen


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Dog chewed power cord. how do I repair


assuming this is a window air cond? It is not safe to use electrical tape, duct tape or any other kind of tape on a power cord to cover bare wiring. Many times I have cut the cord short enough to cut out the place where chewed and gone to a hardware store where I can get a new cord end that matches the wall plug and wire it in to the shorter cord. If this is not possible, you will need to either make a new cord or try to find a cord at an appliance supply house.

My dog chewed the cord in half! ?? dog is ok


Yea yea yea ... blame it on the poor dog ...

Is this printer a 110 VAC into the device or is it powered by a transformer?

If by a standard cord, use any computer cord. If by a transformer, there is that possibililty you can repair the broken wire by removing the damaged portion and reconnecting the two ends. Pay attention to the marks on the wire (white mark or ridge or color of the conductor). Make sure the two wires are insulated from each other.

If you are not able to effect this repair yourself, or by a neighbor with a such skills, get yourself to the computer repair shop around the corner from where you live and plea your case. Expect to pay $15.00 for this repair job. If you require a new power supply, please check www.hp.com/support for your model, e-bay or Craigs List.

There are a few emergency ideas for you. If it is really really really critical and you can't find or make the repair ... you can always get a new, economy printer to use until you can get this one going again.
