where do you get the replacement parts for charging port

Scott Winstone - Yanıt

Since HP does not supply the replacement ribbon, or many other parts for that matter, it is easiest to search on eBay and/or Craigslist for the parts needed. I found that the UK version of Amazon and eBay offer the best availability for such parts.

Zachary -

I had to stop at Step 1. The T4 Torx screwdriver is too big.

stevwatsn - Yanıt

My apologies for the incorrect sizing of the Torx driver; please use a T3 sized driver, as it is the next size down from the T4.

Zachary -

do you have a product number for the charger strip?
