Question about HP Xb3000 Notebook Expansion Base And 400gb Kit 400 GB Hard Drive
My expansion base power is intermittent, once power is lost so is access to the optional internal hard drive and USB connections to the ports attached to the base except the RJ45 port (internet connection). I can remove the power connection from the back of the expansion base and connect direct it directly to the HP Pavilion dv9000 Notebook PC to continue PC charge put I still lose access to the base connections.
Wow like XB3000 day, find it in garage sale for $3?
DV9000 is a match !
This is dead product, now in the LEGACY status....(means dead)
NO OS stated, XP??? why post leaving out the most key part.?
this device has zero support at HP now. zip
and is a 2005 produced (first one) and is XP only, (will 2005 is that)
the drivers are not available now. anywhere,
so... only google might find them, I see zero
HP does not support old legacy devices, who does?
no law requires over 10 year support.
so if all XP drivers for the XB3000 are present
and all batteries are good.
power packs all good.
and no XP viruses present (never seen 1 XP clean in my life)
then it can work
did you read the manual first
A WISE OWNER, GETS THE SOFTWARE BEFORE THE 10 YEAR ENDS, AND KEEP IT.
try to know that parts this old can not even be sourced now.
did youo ever work in production factory like me.?>(sr. tech)
ever see things go obsolete like the drop of hat??
need list of all chips not gone. from earth , have it. its near endless.
no company in the world , can just wave a wand and have parts
not made now , magically , show up.
how ever if rich and want to fix a device that has street value of about $3 it can be fixed,, $300 labor.?
with hard work, finding legacy parts, only ebay has them.
parts not made now. or google for them. 1 by 1.
we do this all the time but not on $3 devices
(high end projection systems?)
now learn this, first find what is really broken and then lay blame
not throw mud lacking facts. and win.
the batteries are not in warranty and not one other part either.
this is what LEGACY is all about.
No lie i could fix it but you cant afford me or my tools.
sorry for the hard truth.
one other problem is the HP has no books with schematics
a tech needs those. to do the diagnosis.
its really just a toy, a throw away device.
if you went to ebay they can be had for $5 working, near free
less than a pack of CIGS.
why fix a $3 box when a $5 box works> ????

your laptop docking bay has quite a simple circuit, inside it is just connecting extenal base socket to connections to laptop.
All you have to do is rebuild connection using solderer and replacement cables.
Use a tester to find out what cable is not working. You put tester extremities on the two sides of the cable, if it returns infinite impadance, then contact is faulty, rebuild contact with a piece of wiring.
