I don't see anything damaged. Maybe you can insert an arrow in the pic and upload it again?
A small bit of the black shielding of my adaptor was accidentally cut away leaving a very small bit of the wire underneath exposed. I really don't want to *have* to get a whole new adapter. The only part that's damaged is the cord seen on the left of this jpg:
Would I be fine by fixing with electrical tape? Would I be able to find *just* that part as a replacement? (I already checked the official HP site- out of stock) Thanks for any advice.
