    Trying to take apart a Compaq Presario V2000 to repair the power supply input pin, which is broken loose from solder. If I figure it out, I'll let you know how it went. I'm hung up, got all the screws out, taking loose everything I can, but the back is still connected near the screen opening button.



    Wish me luck!

    I ordered the replacement jack and successfully took the laptop to bits, but I am having problems actually getting the old power jack unsoldered from the motherboard. The laptop was obviously put together by a machine and a soldering iron seems insufficient to get at the joints. I've tried a solder ****** and copper gauze but with no success. Anyone have any idea how I can remove the solder from the holes?

I did this myself with my HP laptop and after many tedious hours of work I was able to remove the motherboard, remove the dc jack, and resauder a new one on the board and it worked out perfectly.
If you feel comfortable doing the work yourself first start off by removing the screws on the bottom. You then should be able to remove the keyboard, look for a cable that connects it to the board. Now you should be able to remove the pieces of the case around the keyboard, look for the cable connecting the touchpad to the motherboard. After that you should be able to remove the LCD screen, look for the cable connecting it to the motherboard. Now remove the screws holding the motherboard in and remove the tiny bolts around the external monitor connector and the printer connector if you have one. Now you should have access to the DC jack. You will need to sauder the current one off the board and resauder a new one on. Keep track of the many many screws and try placing the components in the order they came out so will know which ones need to go back in in the proper order.
This is VERY tedious if you are not familiar with working on laptop hardware. You maybe able to find a local shop willing to do this or you can look online for a place that replaces DC jacks on motherboards.

Hope this helps!

Remove the power cord, battery and all accessory covers on the bottom. Then remove all bottom screws plus the ones under the harddrive and battery. There are retaining clips around the battery holding area and the front release button. Just use a pocket knife and pry between the bottom cover and the side of the case to break them lose.

I fixed my friends by removing the bottom cover and then soldering the main pin in the back of the power jack back to the rear copper clip. It must break lose after being wiggled. I had to add flux to get the solder to stick. It is about a 30 minute repair after you know what to do.

I have the same laptop,and had the same problem.After enough prying,I got the bottom off to find a plactic clip near the LCD latch button.The service manual says after removing the screws on the bottom,lift the bottom off.They don't mention anything about having to pry the bottom off.But I had to.Why all the clips when they have that many screws?That's what I would like to know!Maybe so you will break it,and buy a new one?Or send it to them to be fixed?I have a V6000 manual that said to remove the power button panel,you remove two screws,but there was actually three.The manual helps,but sometimes they do have mistakes.Here is the link to the manual.I hope this helps.If you have any questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!

The small rubber button on my compaq presario V2000 isn't working. When I open the screen of my laptop the light on the screen will switch on for just a moment, and then switch off. How can I fix it so the...


Hello.

The most common reasons 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 no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Laptop dead Compaq / new dc jack


Does the hard drive have to be in for the power to go on? NO

All you will get is the BIOS boot up screen then and error screen saying it can't detect hard drive.

Power supply malfunction?


Remove the battery and try the cord again. Complete with the moving it around. It sounds like you have already diagnosed the loose DC plug adaptor, but the battery could have gone terminal.

Testing dc jack on laptop


You are not supposed to get a short on the power you could take out the power socket and try the test straight to the board.


On a board I have that works using my digital meter on the diode setting I get a reading of 1200 aprox and 190 aprox when the probs are reversed.

If you have a dead short and the power socket is ok then likely there is a resister shorted out or a diode or even a transistor chip on the mainboard.

It should be ok to power up while in bits so long as the cpu fan is running.

Good luck Regards Wayne.
