This laptop will not charge. It does not even recognize that it is plugged in. I have tried multiple wall outlets and adapters and none of them work. The orange light next to the charge port never comes on or flicker or anything like that. Everything with this laptop is in perfect condition and i have used it lightly.
I have seen from others that this is either a charging connector issue or a motherboard issue? What chance do i have to fix this at reasonable cost? Will HP help me out because this is clearly a manufacturing defect even though I am out of warranty?
I bought it in 2015 and the warranty expired a few months ago.

If this is a connector issue then you can fix or can't fix it, Sometimes you can solder it back to the motherboard.
Is it possible there is a short circuit?
Are you familair with working with soldering or opening laptops?
If not i don't recommend checking if the connector inside your laptop is broken.
If you know an experienced store which repairs laptops, etc then ask them (if you are not experienced)
Hope this helps,
(Don't go with people repairing it on websites which are not shops, They can get your data from your disk and use it for bad things.)
