I lost my normal AC adaptor for my dv7-1285dx. I let my friend take it to his shop to use an adjustable adaptor to charge it. Well now it wont turn on, the little light that normally turns on when charging isnt on either. Is there some sort of fuse or something that he could have blown?
Are you once again using the required adapter that goes with it? Chances are that the other adapter may have had a bit too much voltage and could have fried something (over current). Have you tried taking the battery out and while keeping it plugged in, starting it up? If it starts, the battery is shot, if not, something internally was probably damaged using the wrong charger.
Yes, i ordered and tried a new adapter and that didnt work. The guy who take it said he couldnt have possibly ruined it, but i disagree.
And yes, i took the battery out and plugged it in and nothing happened.
HP has it now so we'll see.
