I own a s3120n and had to replace PSU unit , removal requires dissembling entire desktop to remove old unit & you,ll also be removing the CPU heatsink you,ll have to clean both surfaces and reapply artic 5 thermal paste to CPU before reinstalling heatsink , if not sure what needs to come apart , search youtube.com for video help , just remember god hates chickens , also if you buy aftermarket it might be smaller in size , so requires a little bit of time to install , check ether Ebay or amazon for replacement & doesnt hurt to upgrade to a 350 watt PSU from the standard unit , just take your time & before you know it you,ll back in business , good luck

Power supply failures in a HP computer can cause your computer to fail to turn on, to operate erratically or cause certain system components not function.

However, the power supply is one of the easiest parts of a computer to replace.
You don't need any special skills to do this.

If you're nervous about opening up your computer case and potentially damaging a computer component, don't be.

All you are really doing is plugging in power supply cables after securing the power supply.
The process should take 10 minutes maximum.

Shut down your HP computer.
Disconnect the power cable from the power supply on the back of your computer.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.

Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.


Unscrew the side panel from the back of the case and slide it off.
Newer HP computers may have a case door you can open for access or have access buttons to press.


Look at the back of your HP computer case for a set of four screws near the top of the case. Remove these screws and set them aside.
Carefully slide your power supply out of the mounting brackets and set it on a clean working surface.
Do not disconnect any of the power connectors yet.

Slide your replacement HP power supply into the case and use the mounting screws to attach it to the chassis.


Use your old HP power supply as a guide to connect your new power supply to all the computer components.

Switch the power cables from each device from the old supply to the new supply so you don't miss connecting any cables.

Check that all the components have power cables inserted and the old HP power supply is completely disconnected from the system.

Close the HP computer case and plug the power cable into the new HP power supply.

Acer aspire one charging port loose


If I recall this model line uses a fixed DC power jack directly soldered to the main board. When they become loose, you can visually inspect the jack itself (without the cord plugged in), and use a pen or probe to see of the center peg is excessively loose. The common result is the solder connections have been broken between the DC jack and the main board. Often the jack itself needs to be replaced (involving complete disassemble, de-soldering old jack, cleaning, repair PCB if needed, and re-solder new jack in place.
TIP - if it is not charging, remove battery, and gently put pressure from different angles with the power cord plugged in, and try to turn it on. If it turns on with pressure from a specific angle, it would indicate the DC jack is indeed loose, and likely needs to be replaced. It works becomes the pressure is making the electrical contact that has other wise been broken. ALSO, if it turns on easily, yet losses power at certain angles, its a similar issue.
TIP2 - If it still indeed charges regardless of the angle, and does not lose power, it may be a "Modular" DC jack, meaning the jack connects to the main board through a wire harness, and is less prone to breaking the electrical contacts, and the jack is simply loose inside it's retaining clips/slides. Minor disassembly and hot glue are quick fixes for this since usually the plastic clip/slide in the chassis have broke.

GOOD LUCK! :)

Hi my x58 won't start up, the light on the power adaptor just flashes when I connect the laptop to the power mains, please help


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 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.

My computer won't come on. Adapter is new. How do I know if its the battery or the adapter?


It's probably the power jack where the adapter is plugged into the laptop. If you try to wiggle it, it might come on - the male part may be dirty or the solder junction at the part where the jack is soldered, is broke. First, spray the socket with contact cleaner to try to clean the contact. If the jack is bad, then it will need to be taken apart and will be a major labor. The job is complex just to dis-assemble the laptop.

I have a CTK-518 Casio Keyboard unit, second-hand. The DC Jack went out on it--the metal rod that makes the connection with the adapter simply broke off. So I purchased a new part and installed it,...


You probably got the WRONG type of jack. Thes jacks have different sizes, including the pin. You probably got one with a smaller sized pin.
These are really a pain to make sure you got the right one.

If you can, verify the pin diameter with a caliper.

ALSO verify the adapter is putting out power FIRST. The forces that broke the jack MAY have destroyed the plug on the cord from the adapter or brolen the cord. Use a voltmeter to verify operation.

If cord is broken, get new plug and replace the plug on the cord that plugs into the unit.

Cable broke off in the input jack


I'm pretty sure t6hat the output jack is a sealed unit(contacts inside soldered to the surface of the circuit board. You may be able to grasp the center shaft of the plug with a thin jawed hemostat or really skinny long nosed pliers and pull it out that way. Make sure the amp is off and unplugged from the wall. If that doesn't work you will either have to get it removed at a shop or disassemble the amp to remove the circuit board and unsolder the jack and replace it or get the broken plug out of the jack once it is unsoldered. I've never had a Line6 apart yet but thats probably the type of jack they used. Thats because it has to be electronically isolated from the chassis. Hope this helps.

DC input jack broken


Yes it's not usually something that can be repaired at home. Your chances are better if the jack just seems loose and not actually broken, however replacing it is better. I work for a Laptop Repair Shop in NYC and we deal with this issue frequently.
