Computer HP Pavillian won't start

The electrical cord that plugs into the computer doesn't seem to make contact with the prongs in the computer. The green light flashes on as I place the cable in the plug. Then as I complete the connection, it will not stay on.

My 4+ yr old hp g60-235dx won't power up anymore...

If the computer does not power up with either this would seem to be telling you that possibly the power cord is not working. Just because there is a light on the power supply unit does not mean the unit itself is working. Obviously the only other problem will be check the plug input as well to see if it is loose or feels wobbly is that is the case replace I would start with a new power supply unit go from there.

I have an HP PSC1610 printer that was given to me. Somehow in the process of moving things around I seem to have lost the short cord that plugs in to the power source - the typical 3 prong housepower plug...

You can source the power plug from any Computer accessories center. The short and the long type can be bought from any of these shops.
You don't have to wait for the part to be sourced from HP service unless it is closer to your place.

I need to find the grey power cord for my HP Deskjet F340

Computer equipment stores should have those 3 prongs power supply.
Radio shack sells them as well.
It does not have to be gray as long their the same size plugs. 95% at a time they are compatible.

I hope this helps.

Hello- carriage jam

I was just getting ready to pull the plug on this printer of mine, and order a new one, when I happened on a solution that worked...

Unplug the unit.
Open the top.
Move the carriage to the left.
CLEAN the black plastic tray that the ink cartridge "parks" over - it seems to collect gunky ink that impedes the movement of the cartridge... also clean the "rail" hehind it. I used a Windex knock-off -- and Q-Tips, somebody else said they used alcohol.

Seems to have done the trick for me. I wasted so much time downloading drivers thinking that it was a hardware problem :-(

Can you help me find a pwer cord for my 32''flat screen (Proton)

Unless this set is really oddball, it probably has the same type power cord connector used on computers and so many other electronic appliances. If this is the case, you can use a standard computer power cord as a replacement. The computer cord is a three-wire plug with a ground pin and the TV probably only had a two-prong plug, but the cord will still fit. Your electric outlet should be the three-prong type (if it's not, get it replaced!) so the plug will fit.

If the connector in the set is really different, you can check online by doing a Google search for replacement parts for you TV.

I need a power cord to go to a new Hp deskjet F4100 series, All in One I just bought and it did not have a power cord with it. I want to keep it because I already have one and like it very much.

You can buy the power cord at any computer shop for $3, the printe uses a generic three prongs computer cable:


If instead the whole power adapter is missing , that costs over $30, in that case, better contacting the seller, here is a picture of the adapter:

Four prong plug to three prong plug

Is the receptacle in the wall a four prong or three prong. You will have to match the cord on the dryer to the wall recepticle. If the wall is four prong the dryer cord has to be a four prong. The green wire with the yellow line, that is on the end of the dryer cord, is a cabinet ground and should be attached to the cabinet of the dryer and making good contact. The other three wires on the end of the dyrer cord attach to the terminal block.
