The fix depends on where the issue is - if it's an issue w/ the power cord input, then it's an easy fix - replace the power supply input - if it's an issue w/ the internal input on the laptop, then it's a much more involved fix. Replacing the motherboard, or, if you want, trying to replace just the power input - is your call. Here's a good article w/ pictures if you decide to go that route - good luck!

Can a hp pavilion dv5-1127cl power port work in a


Hi there
I think in this particular case it might not be wise. The power blocks for these two appear to be different wattages (65 & 90 respectively) and also the connector to the laptop does not look to be the same, in which case damage to the power inlet socket of one or the other laptop could occur if you tried to fit it too energetically. I did find this eBay seller who gave quite a list of compatible laptop models for the power supply he was selling, but although the DV7 series is there, the DV8 series isn't.
AC Adapter Charger for HP Pavilion DV5 1127CL DV5 1128CA Power Supply
I think you would be better to get a power supply that exactly matches to prevent potential future problems.
Perhaps not the advice you were hoping for, but I would get a new one for whichever machine you need it for, and make sure that compatibility with your machine is specifically stated.
Cheers

I have a DV 9700. It wont power up. No lights anywhere. I tried a friends AC adapter, battery remove, power button press etc etc. Is the power supply replacable? HP repair shop said they will only replace...


It may be the dc connector on the motherboard is broken. Take it to a repair shop and ask them to confirm whether it's the dc connector or your power supply that is faulty before ordering any replacement equipment.

I can't start my hp zd 8000


If no power check;

  1. If on battery take out battery and plug in ac adapter to a known good outlet.
  2. Make sure power connections are snug
  3. Make sure ac adapter connections are good.
  4. If ac adapter on power strip, turn off and on power strip
  5. Try again.
If theres no display try the following;
  1. Reboot and keep tapping on F8 to go to Safe Mode.
  2. In Safe Mode select "last known good configuration" and then press Enter
Still no display;
  1. Connect an external monitor, toogle to external monitor
Let me know if any these solutions work if not we can try something else
