Hi all

I have an HP 520-1030uk touchsmart desktop, 14 months old with a faulty power cable.

Tried to buy from HP UK but they " don't keep that kinda thing in stock ".

Infact it looks like there is none in the UK.

I could order from the US or through a third party in the UK with a 3 week delivery. 

What I can't believe is some of the prices out there, as much as £124 + vat for what in effect is a lenght of wire with a box and a plug on it. UNBELIEVABLE. 

Any ideas guys where I might get lucky. I did not realise buying a power cable would be such a big deal. 

Cheers

Jim

Well a 180W Switched Mode Power Supply isn't just a cable...

 

And HP parts are notoriously expensive. But looks like you should be able to source in Europe? e.g:

Sadly this one is a different part number to mine. I did ask the seller if it would be suitable but they could not say for sure. Trust me I have spent a long time trawling around looking for the same part as mine but nothing. Thanks for your input though.

I did think the correspondence was more direct than that when I posted the link, but all the indications I can find point to that being an equivalent - assuming your part number is 669265-001 as per HP:

 

http://h20141.www2.hp.com/Hpparts/part_where_used.aspx?mscssid=134DBA818B314F52BE0CDA6991E8FB5F&SearchCriteria=669265-001

 

If this is the part number of your PSU, scroll further down past where your 520-1030uk is shown, and towards the bottom of the list you'll find HP's device category 180W 19V/9.5A 3 Pin Right Angle EPS 2 QS962AV. Click on the QS962AV link then "List all parts for this product", and you'll find HP's equivalent supply is 681059-001. (I can't show a link to this screen as it's generated dynamically.)

 

Both this 681059-001 and the 463952-001 are offered as replacements for the same products, e.g. HDX9000:

 

http://www.mini-laptop-accessories.com/180w-hp-tpcaa501-tpcba521-681059001-ac-adapter-charger-p-19430.html

 

http://www.splusdirect.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=8602

 

I suppose it's fair that the sales staff can't offer you a guarantee, and true, neither can I, but it certainly looks to me like the equivalent that came up on my search should be suitable.

I've purchased a 463952-001 and you were right it is compatible. I still have no power light on the rear of the desktop nor will it start. Obviously there is more to this than what i first thought. Many thanks for your help and advice.

That's unfortunate if there's more to the problem that just the PSU. But glad to offer what help I could. Thanks for the update.
