Yes and most shop usually charge around 150.00 because the laptop needs to be disassembled to remove the motherboard. The problem is you must have this repaired as soon as possible. The bad connection creates arcing which will eventually destroy the motherboard.

My hp pavillion dv6700 will not power up all of the blue lights will flicker as i press the power button for a few seconds then it will power off. ive tried taking the battery out and running it strictly...

Your DC jack may be loose or broken off the system board.

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it's still under warranty, it would be fixed at no charge to you.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

My HP G60 is saying plugged in not charging its only 4 months old

Its a very common problem in hp laptops. When the laptop is very overheated it automatically stops battery charging. I had same problem, i consulted hp service center. They made a BIOS update and suggested me to use Laptop Cooler(Heat pad) and my problem was solved.
Also i mostly keep my laptop in Power Saver Mode to keep it cool.
Hope this will help.....cheers:)

Doesn't power up, power light flashes 3 times when power button is pressed

Hello mate,
check that:
1. power supply is connected correctly to the electricity and from the other side to your laptop. 2. there is normally a light on the power supply, make sure that this light is one. in case it's off, that means the power supply is broken. 3. There is a charge light on the laptop which should be on once you connect the power supply to the laptop even tough the laptop is off. if this light is off, that means: a. the power supply is not passing the current to the laptop: you may test with another power supply. b. the power connector on the laptop is broken.
In the worst case, the motherboard maybe broken.

No power from cord to computer


If your laptop is under warranty go back to the manufacturer. If not go to hp center and buy a power cord of your charger which is totally fix to the charging hole.

Good luck

HP Pavilion dv2020us laptop battery won't charge

How is your power supply? does it seem like you have to wiggle your cord that connects to computer to make it recieve power?...Many laptops power supply become loose over time form moving the cord around..when it does, the battery has a hard time getting electric power to recharge. Also, you my have other problems with your lithium internal battery that powers your cmos.

Check to see if your power supply is loose and go from there. the power supply is the little hole where you connect the cord to the laptop.

let me know what the status is
