refurbishing a pavillion dv6500

[ Edited ]

I am becomming increasingly aggravated over the nonsense of refurbishing machines.

 

Today's headach is a DV6500 with an AMD Turion CPU and NVIDIA graphics

 

so I bought  a replacement brick, not the right connector

 

4.8mm/1.7mm bullet shape

 

is evidently not the right one

 

the connector has a hex nut over it, suggesting its a higher power connector

 

so can somebody tell me what the proper size is?

 

the BS over 1001 power connectors is why I am preparing a class action to clean this nonsense up

 

where do I deal with the battery recall?

Re: refurbishing a pavillion dv6500

Maybe a picture of what you are working with? The dv6500 uses a very common 18.5v 3.5a barrel type adapter like this:

 

 

This is a 3 year old post but may still be viable regarding the battery recall:

Re: refurbishing a pavillion dv6500

so far 2 bricks later, both are too small

 

the exact model i have is the DV6645CA

 

 seems HP is still offering garbage service manuals that do not point this out

Too small how? The brick or the plug? I have seen quite a few of that model series and that picture shows the AC adapter that they take, from what I have seen. The make a 65w and 90w version but the plugs are the same.

I have a 65W and a 90W general vesion, both are the same connecor and neither is the right size.

 

the machine's connector is obviously larger.

Re: refurbishing a pavillion dv6500

Could you post a picture of the DC jack plug? Perhaps someone has modified it to use the later "center pin" type connector.
