Charging Light blinks 8 times After charging port replacement in 13-4003dx (spectre)

HP Recommended
Spectre 13-4003dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have seen this issue brought up in several other threads . Unfortunately none of these solutions seem to be helping me out. I have 2 of Laptops That I have been using for approximately 5 years. Both of them are having issues with charging. I changed the charging port Following the procedure that was outlined in the Manual. Initially the laptop powered on but It almost immediately Flash off . Now there is no Charging light when plugged in however when I hit the power button, It flashes 8 times Briefly and then turns off . I have tried to Disconnect the battery, utilized different charge port commector, charged the battery all night. All to no avail. I even Attempted to maneuver where You hold down the power button for 30 to 40 seconds And connect the charger with no battery power. I saw that some people were able to Improve the situation with alternate adapter however I Connect to the known functional charger With no Improvement.



At this point it would not be cost-effective To replace the mother board. I am also terrified to attempt to fix The other charge port. 


Any help would be very greatly appreciated.
