Power chord must must moved continually to show charge

Power lost to computer...port seems loose, but turning & bending power chord at port makes system charge..
Can problem be isolated to determine wire defect or port defect problem with power supply?
Is this a common problem? Does HP gurantee parts?

Yes, this is common, if the power cord at the connector is flexed continually then the metal fibres in the cord will break due to metal fatigue.
You can cut off the connector away from the break and fit a new connector on the cord, make sure the the wires are soldered correctly to provide the correct polarity at the connector.
The problem could be at the laptop where the connector plugs into the laptop's power socket. It could have a dry solder joint or the socket is faulty. This requires dismantling to repair.
The HP warranty would cover the normal warranty period and would not extended for worn parts.

Speakers not Charging


Make sure the power cord is completely plugged into the back of the speakers. make sure the speakers power button/switch/knob is turned on. if both of these things are not the reason call the company you got them from and ask about a warranty.

Spy pen not working


If you have a Spy Pen, sometimes it just appears to be either stuck with the light on, or dead and won't turn on. We wrote this report to show you some of the tricks we found to getting your it to work again.
1. Perform A Hard Reset
The majority of the time, just inserting the end of a paper clip in the opening below the status light on the back, and performing a hard reset, will get your Spy Pen working. Just bend a small paper clip end out, and insert straight into the opening. When you meet resistance, push lightly, and you can feel the reset button depressed.
Make sure it goes straight in, and not at an angle, or you could damage some of the components inside. Let go and try to turn it on.
2. Rule Out The USB Cable
If you are using a USB cable to either connect the Spy Pen to your computer, or to the 110V wall charger adapter, one day the cable will fail. If you use the USB cable because you can't connect the pen directly to the computer, try just plugging it directly into the computer.
Don't use a USB hub, as sometimes there is not enough power for the it; just connect it directly to the computers USB port. On some computers, use the USB port on the back, as front USB ports are sometimes weaker.
3. Rule Out The 110V Wall Charger
Just like the USB cable, the 110V wall charger adapter will also fail at some point; so if it does not seem to take a charge, try charging it for 3 hours in the computers USB port. If the status light is on while its charging, its getting electricity to charge the battery.
4. Put The Spy Pen Back In Video Mode
Several Spy Pens have switches to go to photo mode, or voice activation mode. If you move the switch to change modes, and you do not move it back to video mode, the computer will say it is not recognized. Try moving the switch back to the original position.
5. Erase & Reformat The Spy Pen
If the Spy Pen shows up as a removable drive on your PC, just right click on the icon and let go on "Format." Then check the "Quick Format" button, then hit OK. The drive will be erased, and reformatted. This usually takes care of any pens that make it this far.

Computer stopped receiving power and won't turn on.


When you move the hard drive from one computer, it won't boot up unless the both computers are exactly the same model and configuration and with the same installed devices.
Generally you need to install Windows again to get a functioning computer when you transfer a hard disk into another computer.

Problem power chord


Hi,
The problem that you Actually Have, Is that the Mains In DC Jack on the Motherboard. Has worked Loose.
You need this replacing A.S.A.P as it,s burning your power packs out, it,s also possibly arcing across the motherboard.
If you look on the internets largest Auction Site :) services are offered to repair these. Usually varying From £40-$80. Plus, Dependant on sending the complete laptop, or just Motherboard.
Alternatively A Computer repair centre. I,d estimated £100-$200 Maximum. But worth Doing to save your Motherboard And future power pack purchases.

Dell 620 Battery Issues


Chances are pretty good that your battery just needs to be replaced. Over time all rechargeable batteries loose their ability to hold a charge. It's also possible, but less likely, that there could be an issue with your AC power adapter or the charging circuitry inside the laptop.

Best bet would be to find a similar laptop with a battery that does charge and switch. If the problem follows the battery then you need a new one.
