I've had a problem with the charger on my notebook (HP Pavilion ZV6170CA).
It's only 8 months old (got it in October) but around the beginning of
January, the tip of the A/C adapter; the bit that plugs into the computer
to charge it started to rip and would shoot sparks. I called HP and they
replaced it without problems. This time, I was careful, because I've also
got an HP printer with the same problem, and made sure not to bend it or
anything and it ripped again yesterday :banghead:...I'm not sure if they
will replace it, and even if they do, it will probably do the same thing,
so is there a way for me to fix it on my own?...If not, is there a way to
preserve the next one so that it lasts for at least a year?
Any help is appreciated, and thanks in advance :thumbs:
Oh right, here are some pictures of what's going on, because I probably didn't explain too well...
Not the greatest quality, but the best I could do...
I tried that yesterday, but the negative is wrapped by some sort of insulation thing, and on the other side of the insulator is the positive cable, and the insulation rips, and sparks start to shoot out...Here's the best I can do to describe it:
Are the wires different colors? If so, strip the cable of the insulations and re-cover each with electrical tape.
It might be possible, but the outer layer of cables is ripped too, can they be soldered together? Or will that ruin it?...
Bump lol...can't go much longer lol
Wow those pictures suck.... Does the power supply hang off the desk?
I couldn't get them much better, and Photobucket shrinks them down automatically lol...A lot of the time, it will hang off of a desk, yeah.
