Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
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.
