This is the DC power jack. Some solder points have most likely come undone. If it's in warranty have Compaq fix it for you. If not, you can call around and get the cheapest price you can to fix it. If your handy with a soldering iron and feel comfortable enough to take apart the laptop yourself, we can provide instructions on opening the case. You can purchase a new jack if need be for about $25 - $30. Just remember this most likely the problem. I can't say for sure without looking at it. You may want to take it in to get fixed just be on the safe side. Hope this helped.

Dead compaq cq40 laptop no power no charging


Step 1:
If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge. You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly. When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop. It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling. If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power. This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury. A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible. Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open. The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors. Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery. Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it. See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed. If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced. If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number. Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay. If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems. Troubleshoot Mag Safe adaptors

Compaq cq56 will not charge


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

I have bought a new charger for my laptop, compaq presario cq56, and it is still not charging


Other expert is right--if not charger may be a loose socket where it plugs in or even a bad battery is possible.

I have a compaq 610 laptop is saying plugged in,not charging.Am using a universal charger


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.
Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, try another charger.


Hope this helps.

I have a compaq presario cq60, I was having problems with the battery and did a battery check, it said I need to replace it so I got another one from hp, I have also replaced the charger as that broke...


It sounds like a loose connection between the charger and the battery/PSU. Have you tried moving the charger around to see if there is a loose wire or connection somewhere?

Are the battery and charger you purchased official Compaq replacements? Using third party or unofficial batteries and chargers is not recommended and can result in there problems.

I have a compac lap top and when i plug in the wall charger nothing happens it wont charge


check to see if you can hear a hum from the charger it self , push the box hard againts ear if its humbing charger is ok, if you cant hear anything from it check fuse to plug. if this is ok then charger is broken.

If charger is ok check the conection into the laptop if it feels loose and when u move it slightly it goes on and off then possible conection to laptop prob.

If this conection is ok and the charger is humbing and working, could be a possible internal switch gone in the laptop that decides to charge and not charge when battery is full. These are always failling on laptops but hopfully its not this.

If you find the charger is broken search ebay for a new or secound hand one, aint to expensive. hope this helps

Compaq presario C762NR notebook pc I have trouble charging it, the blue light turns on and off. Once I plug it in I need to move the charger around in order to start charging


You either have bad wires or loose connection. Take the prongs on the plugin and bend them both outwards. Use wrench if needed. Bend them just enough so they will stay in the outlet without being loose. This is the most common problem with charging
