HP ZD7000 laptop DC jack repair issue -- motherboard damage

The HP ZD7000 series of laptops are, in our opinion, among the best of HP's creations. This laptop has a full 17 inch LCD as well as the extended numeric keypad keyboard. Typically a DC power jack repair on this model goes smoothly without incident. On some of these laptops we have received, however, the motherboard will sustain some burn damage right at intersection of the motherboard and the positive terminal of the DC jack itself. In some cases the motherboard will burn through its own insulation between the positive and ground circuits and cause a short. The good news is that we can almost always repair this problem while we replace the DC jack in this laptop. It takes a little improvisation, but we have a fix for this problem. And, it won't cost you a penny more than the standard $99 we charge for our DC power jack repair service.
