This is an extensive fix, You will need to tear the laptop all the way down and remove the motherboard in order to remove the old jack and resoldier a new one. I purchase all jacks for my shop from Ebay, you can generally get any jack for $3 to $6. Here's a disassembly guide for an r3000, it's similar to the v3000, and from experience, I can tell you that all laptops are similar enough that once you take one apart, you can take just about all apart. You might browse the site at the lower link a bit, it has many different assembly files, you may find more that will help.

Presario laptop issue with power indicator light and detecting powers supply


Sounds like your DC Power Jack is bad or broken. The DC Power Jack is where the power cord plugs into the laptop? Most times it get damaged by too much stress on it such as sitting in bed with the laptop, or putting the laptop in the laptop bag with the power cord still plugged in.

Take an ink pen and put it into where the Power Cord normally plugs into the laptop. If the pin inside the DC Jack is loose or wiggles then the jack is probably bad. Sometimes the jack can be completely burned out and you can smell smoke .

If the internal DC Power Jack is loose, you will have totake the laptop apart to repair it. The DC Power Jack is on themotherboard and most times it is soldered to the motherboard. That meansyou will have to desolder the old one and solder a new one in it's place. Sometimes the dc power jack sits in a slot between the bottom case and palmrestwhich hold it in place and has a cable harness that plugs into the motherboard.

Can this HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter fit for Compaq Presario V3000 laptop? I doult that HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter on website:http://www.laptopbatteryshop.ca/hp-pavilion-dv9000-ac-adapter.htm...


Have a look at the label on the bottom of the V3000 laptop and check the voltage and amps power rating of the laptop.
If the DV9000 adapter has the same voltage and current rating (amps) or higher amp rating then it is suitable for the V3000 laptop, provided the power plug fits the V3000 power socket.

Ineed to access the power jack? How do i get


go to hp.com you can download manuals and drivers for your specific laptop,

on a side note, It has been my experiance that the power jacks are soldered on the mainboard and then thinly coated with glue so they hold position, keep that in mind because with yours being loose the odds are that the glue around your power jack is broken, so when you pull the jack out from the plastic case be careful not to break the solder connection on the mainboard

SYSTEM POWER SUPPLY OFF


If the AC adapter is working but the computer doesn't recognize the power (the indicator on the computer isn't on) and the battery isn't charging, the trouble is probably bad solder connections at the power jack. Because of flexing of the power connector, the jack can break loose from the main board and needs to be resoldered. It's not a difficult repair, but involves taking the main board out to gain access to the bottom (solder side). In some cases the main board can be burned by arcing and heating from the bad connections, and sometimes the damage is too severe to repair. The only solution then is to replace the board.

Compaq Presario 900 power cord connection problem


I've fixed a couple and finally resorted to using a cable retention device like the one in this video to stop the constant tugging and jerking that seems to cause the failures. PS the design of the pins/sockets is really shabby.
