To RescueTecLA. I have pavillion dv9000 17" with the same problem ("the plug in seems to be bad...have to wiggle the power cord to get it to work"). I read your posting here ("You can go the DIY approach for a cost of $10-30 and 1-3 hours of your time; or have someone with experience repair the laptop for $80-120 dollars. If it's worth it for you to go DIY, let me know and I'll point you to a guide"). Can you point me to a guide? Thanks in advance, Ron dory@flash.net

It's not that hard. You need to open it. And actually afterwards just look inside and you can see it all. If you can't see it, it's not user repairable. If it's the lead, either the high or the low voltage, replace! 
It's that easy, that's why there are no guides for this... :-)
Best tool you can use is a soldering pen, but can go on with a hobbyist gun. soldering honey yes, as you want it to hold, but NO need for any special solder(like silver...)-just any will do.

HP Pavillion dv6700 - won't power up


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.

Bad power cord or bad connection on laptop?


Probably the DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer. Take a ink pen and stick the tip in where the power cord goes to see if it wiggles. If so, that's your problem.

I have a HP Pavillion DM1-10. Everytime I plug in my power cord to my notebook it says 22% plugged in, not charging. I'm worried that my notebook is malfunctioning so I hope you can give me some advice to...


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.

Wind Tunnel vacuum motor won't turn on


The fact that you wiggled the cord and it came on would seem to indicate a defective cord, either at the plug end or at the machine itself. Look again at where the cord enters the vac and at the wall. twist it slightly if you see a thin or collapsed area that is your problem.

Power chord won't charge laptop


If you need to wiggle the cord in order for it to charge, then you have a problem.
If you have to wiggle it at the computer, you probably have either a bad plug on the adapter or the power connector on the motherboard is going bad. This situation will not cure itself. It will only get worse.
Check the voltage at the end of the power adapter cord (the plug where it goes into the computer). If it's constant even when you wiggle the plug, you're gonna be looking for a new motherboard soon. I have actually replaced the power adapter on motherboards, but it's tricky--you have to be really good with a soldering iron!

Hp pavillion zd7000 notebook unstable connection


This is a common problem with laptops.

You can go the DIY approach for a cost of $10-30 and 1-3 hours of your time; or have someone with experience repair the laptop for $80-120 dollars.

If it's worth it for you to go DIY, let me know and I'll point you to a guide.

Screen blackout when using AC cord


I think you're goin to have to replace your" dc-jack" as it's called. This is where your AC cord plugs into your laptop.DC-jack problems are very common in laptops.Over time they wiggle loose just enough to mess up the solder connection on the motherboard.Try gently wiggling your AC cord where it plugs into your computer ,if you screen returns to normal when you wiggle the plug a certain way,then you've most likely got a bad dc-jack.
