Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook

2 Answers

The power plug won't charge the battery which prevents the computer coming on

My Compaq Presario R3000 won't come on because the battery can't charge because the power plug seems to have a shortage in the connection. The power plug doesn't seem to get a complete connection. The plug on the back of the laptop is really loose. It has a lot of wiggle room or move from side to side room.

    I need to find out the power jack part number and how to change this out on my compaq r3000. my computor wont charge the battery. The shop said it was a loose power jack and needed replacing but heard it was connected to the motherboard. There seems to be alot of chats online about this problem with this model and the heatsink

    I have the same Presario R3000 problem with the plug in battery charge. How do you get it fixed through HP considering class action suit?

    power cord won't charge laptop battery. Instead of solid charge light indicator on pc it flashes. No power!

    Power cord is really loose and won't charge the computer anymore. Thought it might be the cord and got a new one. It didn't fix the problem, so it's definitely a problem with the power jack in the back of the computer.

With no battery fitted to the Laptop and the power supply fitted and working o/k, the Laptop is dead. Could it be the convertor on the motherboard faulty , if so, can it be repaired.

There was a recent class settlement agreed to by HP regarding these models. HP failed to notify a ton of its customers and I've contacted Scott Kamber regarding.. (We were consultants for the suit).. Weve repaired a ton of these and you are not alone. Did you buy the machine new and register w/HP? Just curious...

My compaq presario r3000 wont charge. its plugged in but when i unplug it it immediatly turns off. the battery life constantly says 0%. it wont drop from that or get any higher. in the bottom right hand...


Sounds like the battery, had similar problems.. if you purchase a new battery make sure you get the right kind there are two types, an 8 cell or 12 cell..

The fix for my pressario involved completely stripping it and soldering 3 pins on the power connector on the mainboard.. not difficult but no mean feat.. now works perfectly (with the inclusion of a 12cell battery)

Compaq presario battery charging


All you can do is to leave the battery out for a few days or longer. It will completely drain and then you can try charging it back up again. Im suspecting that the battery is starting to go bad anyway but at least this way you can verify this. If it still doesn't charge completely then the battery needs to be replaced.

My r3000 has a tempermental power supply. it


whatabout the lead that plugs into the laptop ? does the plug in the laptop move easily, with the lead in, Sounds like the actual plug in the laptop is breaking away, the solder around the connector. Sadly to fix that you will have to get it repaired for about £50 to £70, maybe more ?? please make sure the lead from power supply is not loose or a bad fitting.

Compaq R3000


r u mention for battery light?if is it true,then the light is blinking because of your laptop want to make sure the power supply charge that battery.if it is in charging condition,the light on.but if the light goes off,that mean, the battery is already full.

But when u use adaptor without battery, the light will goes off because no charging session is in progress which has same behaviour with battery full(during battery full,no charging session occur)

My Compaq R3000 does not charge up


The problem might be the battery itself. Four years is a long time for rechargeables. Also, check if the error ocurs when the battery is not in the slot.

COMPAQ V2000 WILL NOT POWER UP WITH DC/ADAPTER OR BATTERY


Hve u tried a differnt adaptor , the adaptor might be blown too ,try replacing the adaptor , also check for the power cord if it has any kinks in it which may be interrupting the power supply , since the adaptor 18.5 v 3.5 a is the most common of all hp adaptors u should find one to try .

Battery won't charge


If the battery is not charging, then the charging circuit of the motherboard is bad.

Page 3-22 lists the spare part number for the motherboard. (4 versions depending on options)

Chapter 5 covers disassembly and reassembly

Wont charge


It could be that your battery is defective/worn out. If the computer just shuts off immediately (doesnt try to hibernate/standby) then you're likely looking at replacing the battery. They can suddenly do things like this if a cell shorts out in the battery or due to common wear. But first, here are a couple of things you can try.

1. Try reseating the battery (pull it out and put it back in). Sometimes something that simple can fix the problem.
2. Try to calibrate the battery. Your computer may come with instructions on how to do this, but if not you can do it manually. Turn the computer on but go into BIOS (press F10 at the compaq logo screen). Don't load your operating system
Unplug your computer. If it turns off at this point, your battery is already toasted. Replace it.
If the computer keeps running, let it go until it finally shuts off due to battery drain. Then plug it back in and let it recharge completely. This will let the microchip in the battery learn its charge potential and may allow you to get more life out of it.

Note: Calibrating these batteries is good practice but it shouldn't be done very often. If your calibration doesn't work after 1 or 2 tries, you probably still are looking at a dead battery.

Laptop won't stay on


it might as well be a internal problem related to power or loose contacts with RAM or the power chords internally.
Better to go to the technician in this case.
Your first Battery would have been fine too..
