Hi everyone,

I just tried to replace my power jack in my hp zd7000 laptop. I had a hard time removing the old jack my soldering iron wouldnt remove the factory solder so i had to remove it the best i could in other ways. (should i have used a desoldering iron?)

when i first plug the power cord into the computer(igo juice power adapter) the lights turn on and says its got power and is charger. although when i hit the power button the power light flickers indicating a poor connection of some kind. The flickering continues the entire span the laptop is on.

i was wondering if anyone here has used an igo juice power adapter and had problems similar or is it just my hardware install.

Thanks,
Jason

Check for cold solder joints at the circuit board. The Manufacture uses a high temp solder when making the boards to prevent premature joint failure due to overheating components. I have a butane powered soldering Iron that I use, never had a problem.

Either a bad soldering job or the traces were damaged during "removal" of the jack.
