Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
Need guidance to remove cover and get at AC Jack. I believe it has broken loose from motherboard. Repair shops want 100-300 + parts to fix. I'd like to try this on my own. Any help, warnings etc will be greatly appreciated.
This is an easy fix if you are comfortable taking apart your notebook and are able to solder the jack back into place. This is very common problem for HP notebooks. Go to the HP website, find your notebook (I would have, but you didn't list the model) and download the Maintenance and Service Guide. Print it! Don't leave it on your notebook because it won't help you! It will walk you through the entire disassembly process, just follow the instructions. Be careful to keep track of all of the screws as there are a TON that go into a notebook. Once you are down to the jack, solder it back into place. If you find that you need a new jack, you can get them for about $5.00 on eBay.
I own 2 HP notebooks and a friend has 2. We have done this on all 4, with no problems. Good luck
