Repairing Power Supply
« on: May 10, 2011, 02:22:32 AM »
I bought an HP power supply on eBay but found out the terminal jacks are cracked and loose. See photo.

Anyone knows where I can get/buy these type of HP terminal jacks? I don't want to use generic jacks, and hope I can find the same type/color of terminal jacks.



Thanks!

Write to HP?

I did... they want me to buy the whole front panel assembly $280.
or send the unit in for repair  $380.

Crazy HP! I just need the freaking plastic jacks.

I'll just buy a defective HP unit on eBay for cheap and salvage the parts I need.

Not the same, but you could change the whole set. Looks like the originals are crap anyway.
Nice power supply tho.

Thanks for the links. I thought about replacing all jacks, but in the end I decided I'll just buy a broken HP power supply on eBay for $10 or so, and cannibalize the jacks. This part is common to a lot of HP PSUs.
