Hp g62 flashing caps lock

BjBnet - I think I can speak for a WHOOOLE lot of people here: A BIG thank you to you for getting us past the immediate crisis, buying time and allowing us to salvage the info from these duds. Really, it's amazing how many people have benefitted from your insight. I'l be interested to hear more about the baking solution.

My laptop is down again this morning. The baking trick didn't last long. It might for someone else so if you're willing then give it a shoot. I give up

That's good BjBnet!

 

Back to square one.  I am thinking that if your computer started......that it still could be a poor solder joint issue.

 

When you did your reflow, what temperature did you set and how long did you go?

As per the instructions 385 and I did it for 10 mins. I might try it a little hotter next time. This happened with xbox 360 from their first batch some years ago. They were using cheap solder and people were getting RROD.
I have too many things to do in the next couple weeks so I can't bake it anytime soon.

My phone lets me know everytime someone replies to this post.. There is no doubt in my mind that The admins at HP know too.. and yet, No responce.  My advice is cut your losses, throw that laptop in the trash, and Move on. This company does not have our best intrest in mind.  I personally will never buy another HP product, and will recomend the same to my customers.
