    I am having the same problem and can't understand. Called HP. They wanted 49.99 just to give me Technical Support. i told the lady that I wasn't interested as I had already been to many websites including this one, no one had a solution other than sending to HP. So, I asked her where I needed to take it to get it fixed, she then informed me that if I sent it to HP it would cost 298.00 just for them to look at it, since the one year warranty expired less than 3 months ago. At that point I told her that for $300 dollars + whatever repair costs would be (remember the 300 was just to look at it) it wouldn't be worth it because I could buy a brand new one for that. This sweet little lady then told me she would switch me to Purchase Dept. This was when I lost it and with many expletives explained that I would never under any circumstances buy another HP anything ever. I then hung up on the clueless idiot and am resigned to either A) buy a bunch of parts (power supply/motherboard) probably a waste of money or buy a new laptop. No wonder the extended warranties for these things are $400+. They must expect them to break immediately after the original runs out. This is ridiculous. Congrats HP you've lost several thousand customers over a default that is a known issue with HP and you'd sell a lemon product with no honor. Oh and the supposed BIOS update that is what supposedly causes this issue is not true. I just ran BIOS update within the last two weeks after I had to do a reinstall of Windows and my BIOS was the most current version.

I just fixed my friends dv6500
it had same probs as mentioned above

the probs i found : shorted schottky diode marked LG = smd10k45
                           shorted n-ch mosfet      marked 702 = 2N7002
                           defect smd cap
All these are placed just below the battery connector on mobo
see page 128 of service manual
replaced these smd's and laptop worked again

the damage was caused by overheating of the smd's
could be you have the replace other smd's surrounding these mentioned above
depends on how hot it was

hope this helps

If the PC works while the AC power is attached but the battery does not seem to be holding a charge, the battery is probably bad. Unfortunately they do go bad after a while. Before spending any money, make sure the contacts on the battery are clean and there is no physical damage/misalignment that is preventing proper contact from being made between the battery, PC and charging hardware.

The charging indicator light no longer comes on when the laptop is plugged in. Just replaced the battery. Also tried a different power cord.

Possibly a failed or damaged charging port (does it feel loose)? After that, charger may not be chucking out the voltage (19.5 volts)? Test with multimeter set to DV volts, with one probe on the inside of the plug ant the other on the outside.

Does the charger LED light blink when connected (sign that power is not making a circuit)

If the above fail to work, then the problem is with the connector on the mobo, this may just be a Charger port needing replacing (wired or soldered version), or the charging circuit of the motherboard gone

My hp pavillion dv1000 wont turn on it is plugged in but the charging light doesnt show up and when i push the power button nothing happens

Problem with your charger, try this :

1. Check whether the charger plug is properly inserted in the Power port/jack of your Laptop!

2. Check the power cord (any cuts OR torn-out)!

3. If above steps don't work, replace your charger.

Hp pavillion dv6000 no charge or power

I would say you have destroyed the battery charger. You can get someone with a digital mulitmeter to easily check if its charging or not.

No power from cord to computer


If your laptop is under warranty go back to the manufacturer. If not go to hp center and buy a power cord of your charger which is totally fix to the charging hole.

Good luck

Failure to start

Will the laptop start if the battery is removed and just the charger plugged in? I would remove the battery and charger for a few minutes and try it with just the charger plugged in. Unfortunately it sounds like a hardware fault. Let me know how that goes. The other thing to try is removing the ram and then putting it back in. this will solve alot of problems like this.

Pavillion wont work with battery

Hi there,
First, I recommend you to try removing and reinserting the Battery when the Notebook is turned on and powered with the Power Adapter.
I recomend you to first clean the Battery Connectors by removing the Battery and use a Earbud to clean the Metal Connectors which connect to the Battery to remove any dust which is peventing from the Battery to supply the required power to the Notebook.

You can find some related topics related to troubleshooting issues related to Batteries in HP Notebooks from the links below :

Additionally, you can download and install HP Battery Health Check SP3229.exe and check the status of the Battery by following the instructions.
Hope this helps...

HP Pavillion dv6500 won't charge

Compare voltage and current (amps) from the original to the new. If the new one is different (voltage is lower, or current substantially lower), then it might not be an adequate replacement. If these are near identical, and you have the correct sized tip, there shouldn't be a problem with the new unit. Obviously, you could get an exact replacement supply $$. Also check online for replacements.
