Presario R4000 battery is charging but the lightning bolt is not lit

When you first turn on the laptop, does the lightning bolt LED light up for a split second, even before Windows opens? That is a test that the LED is not burned out. If it does, then are you using the correct AC adapter that came with the laptop? Some look identical, but are not as powerful enough to run the computer correctly and you wouldn't necessarily notice a difference except something like the LED. How old it the battery and how long does it take to fully charge?
1. Reset the laptop by shutting down the laptop and unplugging from AC power;
2. Remove the battery;
3. With the computer unplugged and no battery, hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Remember no power on the computer at all for this step.
4. Replace the battery and plug it back in and turn on.

If that doesn't help, search the internet or HP's web site and update the BIOS for your specific system. Look for good directions for doing this and don't run the BIOS update from the internet, you should download the BIOS to your computer and then run it from there. The BIOS cannot be interrupted. If the BIOS is interrupted while installing, it WILL render your computer useless and you will have to replace the motherboard (extremely expensive).

Hp pavilion g6 series

Have you tried another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs? Has the AC jack, in the laptop, been damaged due to pulling on the cord/charger? Have you tried with and without the battery? Does it power with the battery? Has there been ANY damage? If you remove the battery what does it do? Describe what happens, without battery, when you push the on/off button? Anything? Led blink? Fan spins?

Hp PSC1210 All-In-One not turning on

HP makes a couple of different power cords for the PSC 1210 and their other printers. First make sure you are using the correct power cord (Amperage and voltage). Unplug the power cord (from the wall and the printer and from a power module if you have one). Leave all of the sections unplugged for at least 15 seconds to reset the power module/printer.

Next connect the power cord to the wall outlet and to the power module if present and check if the LED (if present lights up). If it doesn't try another outlet. In either case, check what the outlet voltage/amperage is at the end of the power cord with a multimeter (before you plug it into the printer). If you have a power module, then check the Amperage (it will be a DC current out).

If you are not getting the correct voltage and amperage out or the LED doesn't light (with a known good outlet), try a different power cord/module.
You can order these from HP.

If you have the correct power at the cord, plug the power cord into the printer and attempt to turn it on. (Press and release the power button.) If the printer still doesn't come on, the unit needs service. Contact HP if the printer is under warranty. Decide if it is worth fixing if it is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

My HP Pavillion Laptop is not turning on. Whenever I press the on button the tiny lightning sign under the screen flashes 3 times but the computer does not turn on!

The lightning bolt you describe is the laptop trying to accept a charge, I'd also look at the charger, if the led on the charger is blinking, there is a fault on the mobo charging circuit ( power not being able to complete a circuit)

If you are lucky it could be the powerboard button connection to the motherboard, remove the powerswitch cover carefully and check for broken or crimped connections.

If removing the battery and running on ac power alone will not work, you may have a faulty dc port, and will need to replace it ( cheap enough).

After that, the indications are that there is a more serious fault on the motherboard.

PC won't come on. LED for the little lightning

Most definitely the motherboard. Contact HP to see if they have extended the warranty on your model as this was a known issue.
