For all those with the ZV series power jack problem, I have replaced a few of these jacks and it is not an easy job unless you are an engineer.

The entire laptop needs to be disassembled, all the panels need to be removed, including the keyboard and you almost have to remove the motheboard.

Even when you eventually gain access to the offending part, you will need to be competent in using a soldering iron to remove the jack without damaging the printed board, then clear the holes so the new jack can be fitted.

While you are doing all this, you need to remember that the circuitry is static sensitive. This means that you can kill your motherboard just by touching it.

When you have finally finished the job, unless you have been pretty smart, you'll end up with a box full of different size screws and you won't know what goes where!

With the ZVs I have repaired, I usually supply a short jumper lead that plugs into the power jack on the back of the laptop. This is two or three inches long with a cable power socket on one end and a power plug on the other. This means that the user can leave the power plug plugged into the laptop all the time and just disconnect and reconnect the power unit from the other end of the patch lead instead of wearing out the laptop's power jack.

SOURCE: No Power - Power Indicator 3 Seconds

This line of hp notebooks is the most notorious for power jack issues. There a re a few different symtpoms but 95% of all problems can be fixed with a power jack resoldering or replacement. It very rarely damages anything else on the motherboardis and seldom has anything to do with the power adapter/supply itself. There are a few options:

1) take to computer repair shop and get new power adapter. (As this requires a complete tear down of the notebook, it can be a bit expensive in terms of labor. The part is less than $10 on ebay and is readily available. You can download the service manual and break down the notebook yourself and take just the mb and new adapter to the shop and save some money. I don't recommend attempting to soldering on the MB yourself

2) If you don't need portability as much as just being able to use the laptop at home, then purchase an xb2000 expansion base from craigslist and power thru the docking port on the side. Be sure and confirm that the adapter is included with the purchase as some owners may have discarded it since their particular model didn't need it.

3) If you can manage to get an XC1000 cable for a reasonable price off ebay or craigslist, this is a portable option. However, as they stopped making these All-In-One media cables a while back, those who have them know their value and command a pretty hefty price. I personally would rather pay a computer repair shop a $150 before I pay some person who capitalizes on my misfortune.

4) I am in the process of confirming this least expensive solution but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
-- adapter from the xb2000 expansion base (you can pick these up cheap or free)
-- xc2000 all-in-one media cable ($35 - $50)
-- 120w power adapter for Presario R4000,R4100, R4200, and Pavilion ZV6000 (oval shaped multi-pin connection required.) Note: The original lower wattage adapter will not work. ($25 - $30)
Although this solution may cost a little bit depending on how creative you are, you can sell your old power adapter to offset the cost of the new adapter AND you can sell all 3 for what you paid when the laptop dies completely.

5) the paper clip trick has been known to solve a few problems where the connection in the socket is the problem

Ultimately, you can purchase a MB and replace it your self, the MBs run around $150 and you can use the service manual to break down the notebook. However, this is only a recommended solution if you have video problems since breaking down the laptop is just time consuming and the soldering of the power adapter is cheap

I had the same problem. You will need to put it in the car cradle and plug it into the car charger. It will come on immediately.

    JBL flip only plays while connecting to the mains


    Seems the battery has gone bad prematurely. Charging circuits have to be good since the unit works fine off the adapter plugged into the mains.

    My flip mino HD has been charging for 3 hours and will not turn on. I've tried resetting the battery and it still won't turn on


    Is it plugged in directly or with a USB extension cable? Some cheaper cables are not sufficient to charge it.

    Flip Mino won't turn on!


    I had the same problem. Here are the steps I took to fix it.

    1. Adjust the power options on your laptop to ensure it does not sleep/hiberate ever.
    2. Reset the camcorder by inserting a paperclip into the hole in the tripod mount. Hold the paperclip in there for about seven seconds.
    3. Then immediately plug the flip into the cpu.
    4. You may not see anything besides the little blinking white light on the USB arm for a while (about 30 minutes maybe) but leave it in.
    5. Eventually it should spring to life and show the recharging battery on the little screen (the Flip Share program may start too.)
    6. Leave it charging until the little white light stops flashing - full charge about 3 hours.
    7. You can then remove the flip and change the power settings back to normal.

    My flip video camera froze.it wont turn on....


    Have you tried resetting the camera? Hold down the power button and the red button simultaneously until the camera shuts off (takes about 10 seconds). Then, just press the power button again and the camera should turn back on. I had the same problem; when I pressed the red button to stop recording, the camera froze, and the red light remained on. I tried resetting it like this, and it seemed to work.

    Flip video won't charge


    If you look on the bottom of the camera there is a button that slides from a locked to an unlocked position. Slide it to unlocked and then slide down the back of the camera (the side with the lens) there is a removeable rechargeable battery pack. Remove it for a moment and then put it back in. Try plugging back into the USB port. This should work.
