Question about HP Pavilion zd7000 zx5000 zv5000 presario 3000,R3000 Series 120W Laptop AC Adapter-360699-001 CD-ROM Drive
For all those with the ZV series power jack problem, I have replaced a few of these jacks and it is not an easy job unless you are an engineer.
The entire laptop needs to be disassembled, all the panels need to be removed, including the keyboard and you almost have to remove the motheboard.
Even when you eventually gain access to the offending part, you will need to be competent in using a soldering iron to remove the jack without damaging the printed board, then clear the holes so the new jack can be fitted.
While you are doing all this, you need to remember that the circuitry is static sensitive. This means that you can kill your motherboard just by touching it.
When you have finally finished the job, unless you have been pretty smart, you'll end up with a box full of different size screws and you won't know what goes where!
With the ZVs I have repaired, I usually supply a short jumper lead that plugs into the power jack on the back of the laptop. This is two or three inches long with a cable power socket on one end and a power plug on the other. This means that the user can leave the power plug plugged into the laptop all the time and just disconnect and reconnect the power unit from the other end of the patch lead instead of wearing out the laptop's power jack.

Beyond what others have said.... It is important, if you try to do this repair yourself, that you use a High-Temp solder, say 450 F or your repair will slowly melt down and require re-repair after a month or two of use. Normal solder is rated around 250F (give or take).
I make this point from personal experience having repaired a few of these types, both compaq and HP labels. The basic design is terrible, and if you trip over the cord, it will easily crack the power port, or at least cracking the solder points on the motherboard, mandating replacement.
My HP zx5295US came to me with its power port damaged. I got a new port off ebay for like $10, and did the repair, unknowingly using solder with too-low a temperature rating, and had to re-do the repair after about 6 weeks. This time I used the 450F (or so) solder and so far the re-repair has held having seen pretty heavy use of this laptop including a new battery.
Just my 2 cents....

I have the same problem with my zv5000. HP started using the cheapest material and labor, and so they screwd up the company and decided to buy face, so they acquired Compaq. I hope they don't screw up Compaq too.

The power jack on the hp series of laptops is rubbish which is
fundamentally the root cause of all your problems.... visit the
