Loose Charging Port

My charging port has become a little loose. I was wondering if there was a way to fix it without soldering. It's still working just fine, I was just hoping to find a simpler way to tighten it before it does break. How much to fix in a shop?

 

Is there any kind of parts break down available for HP laptops?

 

I read a thread below stating that is isn't part of the warranty, and know if it gets worse I will not be able to charge the battery. 

 

Thanks for any insight.

The warranty does not cover problems with the power pin port. There is nothing you can do to tighten it up short of soldering and you never reuse the old module....always get a new one. The price for the repair has stabilized on the internet and in shops that can do it (which are few and far between) at $100-150 US. HP does not do or even acknowledge that this repair exists. If you send it to HP you would get a new motherboard. I encourage you to live with it until the battery stops charging, which is when the problem must be repaired.

 

Service Manuals for all HP laptops are posted here and they all have an exploded diagram and parts list, but the power pin module is not a separate numbered HP part; you buy them from the Internet/eBay. If I knew your model number I could link you right to the Manual.

Re: Loose Charging Port

Thanks Huffer for the reply. The power port is a different post by someone else on the forums, it's not me.

 

My screen/display is loose  on the hinges, I want to find out how to repair the issued.

Re: Loose Charging Port

First of all please post what model laptop it is that has the loose d/c jack. The d/c jack is not always on the system board itself but is a power a harness that you can replace. So if you can post the model of laptop then i can tell you exactly what part you will need. Like all the dv2000/v3000, dv6000,v6000, dv9000, dv2-, 3-, cq50, g60, dv5-, dv7- well to get my point across most newer say 2006 on up to laptops all have cables you replace to fix the d/c jack.

Re: Loose Charging Port

i have a g71  345 cl laptop

it was purchased on black friday at sams club and was given to my daughter as a Christmas present - so it has been in use for roughly 4 months - the power jack - where the charger cable plugs in is very loose and does not work about half the time -my questions are - is there a replacement part for this - would it be covered under warranty - would it be something i could fix by myself (with replacement part)

thanks
