HP Dv9500 not charging battery

Just brought my friends Laptop home today, a HP dv9500. I happen to have the same one. Her's would not start i notice that when you plug the power adapter in the blue ring lights up, although the battery is not being charged. If i swap batteries it will run until that battery is dead. If i remove the battery while plugged in it will not start.

I am assuming that there is a possible bad solder point somewhere, has anyone dealt with this of have any ideas?

Sounds like the AC port is faulty, these can be a real pain to get hold of replacements and a complete nightmare to replace if you are not very experienced with a solder iron! my advice would be take it to your local computer centre to have the port replaced but expect to pay around £70. if you do attempt to do this yourself you will need solder wick to soak up the solder holding the port in, a very steady hand and time.

HP DV9500 has start problems.

Here is a fun fact about this HP laptop....the keyboard want to be grounded before the laptop will fire up in certain situations. Make sure that the three screws are secure in the battery compartment that secure the keyboard and there is another screw inside the memory compartment that has to be secure. You can tell its the keyboard screws by the keyboard icon embossed in the plastic. Also the ribbon cable that carries the input signal tend to go bad in these, especially around the fragile ends. You can get these cables on ebay for under 7 bucks.
