How to take apart HP Pavilion dv8

In this guide I explain how to take apart a HP Pavilion dv8 laptop. I’m taking it apart in order to replace failed DC jack.

The LED light on the DC jack started flickering when adapter plug moved. I tested it with another known good AC adapter but it didn’t fix the problem. I assumed this is DC jack related failure and decided to replace it.

I believe that HP Pavilion dv8  have many different flavors.

It’s possible that your model will be a little bit different but most disassembly steps should be very similar.
