You can buy a power plug and solder it to the wires. You need to be careful so that the polarity of the plug is correct for the laptop, if you reverse the wires you can damage the laptop. If you are not sure, get a computer service techo to do the fix.

My HP-35DX always plugged into the wall and the power cord keeps falling out of the computer and it loses its charged. I have replaced the power cord 2x's in a year and when i turn on the computer

Replace, or have the DC Power Jack replaced.

This is the port on the laptop, that the plug from the AC adapter (Charger), plugs into.

The Good news is the DC Power Jack is a jack connected to a harness with wires in it, and has a plug on the end of the wires.
{ Power Connector Cable }

This means the faulty DC Power Jack, does NOT have to be un-soldered from the motherboard.

The Power Connector Cable, (HP name), is simply unplugged from the motherboard, and replaced with a new one.

(The Power Connector Cable's plug end itself, { Jack }, sits in a channel, formed in the outside edge of the bottom case. The plug on the end of the Power Connector Cable, just plugs into the motherboard )

The bad news is the computer has to be completely disassembled, down to removing the motherboard. Just like laptop models that have the DC Power Jack soldered to the motherboard.

You yourself perform this easy repair?

1) Use an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
{ Electro Static Discharge }

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Using an ESD wrist strap prevents this.

Average cost of an ESD wrist strap is around $3 to $6.
Average example,

[ Note*

Isn't just a piece of wire wrapped around your wrist, and connected to a good ground.
The wrist strap has a piece of metal that contacts the skin of your wrist.
From the piece of metal there is a 1 Mega Ohm resistor, that then connects to the wire/s in the ESD wrist strap's cable. The cable's wires connect to the alligator clip ]

2) Use a multi-compartment container, for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

If no multi-compartment container is available, substitute with a clean egg carton. Label each egg holder.

SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws.
DO NOT mix them up.

3) Make a record as you disassemble. Make notes, and drawings.
Perhaps use a digital camera, and/or video camera. (Use good lighting. Make your drawings and notes legible )

It's nice to have pictorial guides, (If available) ,and a Service Manual, but nicer to also have a Personal record to refer back to, in case you are interrupted.

A) Disassembly pictorial guide,


(IMHO, I would just close the small HP window that comes up. X at top right )

On this page click on the blue file name -
Compaq Presario CQ60 Notebook PC HP G60 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the above file name, it may take up to 30 seconds for the first page to come up.

Page 87 - Power Connector Cable


D) Additional;
How to remove the Display Assembly,

The Power Connector Cable (DC Power Jack) is worn out.

Since it does not make a good contact with the plug of the AC adapter (Charger), it cannot pass power To the Battery, or TO the laptop.

If you need guidance please post in a Comment.

Power cord

this model has a 110v or 220v power supply built into it.
Make Sure it the matching required voltage on its case if you plug 220v power point into a 110v rated power supply inside the laptop it will let out lots of smoke and stop working !

The part number is 255135-AA1

Seems more like a problem with the power receptacle where you plug the power cord into the laptop.In order to fix this problem, you will need to disassemble the unit to get access to the motherboard & replace the power receptacle with a good one.

I want to replace the cord/plug is it easy?

Malibu power packs are 1-piece units that can't be taken apart.
However you can cut off the cord and leave about 4-6" of cord sticking out, and then splice into the cord that's sticking out.

Usually I buy heavy orange or black extension cord with male-female plugs on each end.
I cut off female end and use that end to splice into the cord that's sticking out.

How to splice wire.
Use knife and slice down the cord lengthwise... just cut through the outer plastic covering.
Pull the outer cover cover back to reveal black and white wires.
Cut off extra cover.
Cut back insulation on each black and white wire.
Now you have 2 black wires and 2 white wires/
Twist together the copper wire on whites and cover with plastic electrician tape.
Do the same with copper wires on blacks.
Now the blacks are joined/ and whites are joined, and each has tape over copper wire.
Wrap black tape around both sets of wires until all the black and white is covered with several wraps of tape.
That's it. Plug it in.

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.

The metal plug on my battery power cord is bent. I can plug it in, but have to twist the cord every which way to get it to charge the computer and must be careful not to touch/move it or it goes off again....

You can replace the plug, you can purchase a matching plug from an electronic hobby shop, When you cut off the old plug and solder the new plug onto the lead, MAKE SURE the wires are connect to the right terminals and not shorting against each other.
NOTE - the laptop socket is polarity sensitive, the + and - leads MUST be correctly wired or you will damage the laptop when you plug in the power supply.
If you feel you have not the skills, then I would suggest you get a computer repair shop to repair the power adapter for you.

Power chord must must moved continually to show charge

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.

HP Pavilion ZV5000 Charger

HP has a cord that plugs into the right side of the zv5000 that is intended for use with a docking station that they sell separately. The connector has a blade with a bunch of connections, but I only use 2, power and ground. The outermost contacts are power +and-. I bought the cord - re-wired my power cord to the new cord power wires - takes some figuring to determine correct wires - soldered them up and it has worked great for 2 years - much better connector also - squeeze side tabs to plug in or un-plug. This solution was about $25 if I remember - compared to $135 that the shop quoted me to replace the internal MB power connector
