Question about Compaq (480082-001) ( 480082-001 ) Power Supply

1 Answer

Loose battery cord

Yeah, I have the same problem. The only way I can get my laptop to charge is to either push down on the charger or push it in hard until the blue light goes on telling me it's charging. For now I've wedged a piece of paper into the charger slot with the chord so it pushes down on the plug and charges the laptop =\

As a tech I have seen this too many times! But good luck use it while you can, but at one point it'll be a 40 minute battle to check get it on just to check your email... Hm.. 3 routes... Replace the power jack, buy one with a bad screen, no hard drive, or memory and use it to charge your battery (very inconvenient), or buy something else and be very careful with the jack

Good luck though

Dead compaq cq40 laptop no power no charging


Step 1:
If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge. You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly. When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop. It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling. If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power. This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury. A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible. Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open. The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors. Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery. Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it. See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed. If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced. If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number. Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay. If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems. Troubleshoot Mag Safe adaptors

No power


Try another outlet, cord/charger, with the EXACT same power specs. Has the cord plug been pulled while pluged in damaging the AC jack? Does the computer boot on battery power?

My laptop is not charging. i plug the power in but still doenst charge. im not sure if its on the power cords or on the laptop please help asap i need my laptop for school :(


Does the laptop work on AC ? Is the battery or cord/charged a replacement? First, try another cord/charger of the EXACT same specs as original. Second, Is the battery good? How old? Over 4 years? Have it tested. Beware of inexpensive aftermarket batteries and cord/chargers. I assume the laptop works on AC? If you unplug the AC , with battery in, the laptop shuts down immediately?

Battery is not charging


The Ac connector on the system board is loose from it's connection. It needs to be resoldered. That entails opening up the laptop down to the System board.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
