I Have a H.P.Spectre 360 convertible 13 Which does not charge anymore. 3 days ago I was watching some news and the power indicator came on that is low on battery . So, I pick it up to connect to the charger and the notebook was
extermely hot.I did plug in and indicator showed that is charging .And even the light indicator(the Orange on the side) was
on .But after awhile yhe screen went black.Right now even rhe orange light does not come on.
So i am in a desperate situation how to fix it or where i should take it to be fixed. Please Help.

I had found this to be the issue in my situation. Unfortunately, I was traveling in Europe with a USA bought product, and the service HP channels were of no assistance. I ended up taking the machine apart and soldering the broken power port myself.
Agreed, this is a great machine but this small defect had caused costly and unnecessary delays and inconveniences in my business trip. The current service HP structure did not lend itself to the problem at all, especially if the product is out of warrantee (just).
The damaged Power Port is still operating after soldering; 4 months now.
The issue in replacing the component is the cable is threaded behind the heatsink-hinge connection; you do not want to remove the heat sink from the processor. This maybe why repair costs always involve motherboard work.
I do not recomend taking apart the machine yourself, this may give further insite to Bjamesons post.

Just received my laptop from HP's repair service center.
Their diagnostics are as follows:
- Mother board: No power or post (ReplacedMotherboard)
- Battery: Battery - battery does not charge (little or no operation without external power); Replaced Defective Battery
... That is after 1 year and a half of normal usage.

@Sawbet I don't have an extensive knowledge in IT. I can only share my own personal experience. If you are Canadian, try calling [Number no longer active] for assistance.
