Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook

1 Answer

Hp pavilion dv2000 notebook will not boot up

Black screen with all lights on Cannot boot, LCD is still, but all blue LEDs are on. Short sound on DVD drive and fan.  Even if I plug in an SD chip on the side, it will blink the LED.
It souns like the HP design problem on the MB that most everyone is having on this post... to bad I live abroad and cannot use the extended repair offer.
HP stinks.  If you need to spend more than $200 on the repair.... better buy a new machine.

Im on a laptop and the back light usually just flickers but the screen has gone dark and i have to use a flashlight to see the screen.


Replace the Inverter, rickeyjsmith.

An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. An additional light source is needed.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. (Lamp = Bulb)
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale in physical size.
(Average size is 3 to 5 inches long, and half the diameter of a No.2 pencil)

An Inverter is used to provide power to the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

90 PERCENT of the time the Inverter is the problem.

Which is a Good thing.
The Backlight is located inside the metal frame that hold the LCD panel layers together.
Usually on one side of the LCD screen.
{Some LCD screens require Two Backlights}

Replacing a Backlight is a job for a trained repair person.
The LCD screen is a composite of layers.

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Vikuiti1/BrandProducts/secondary/optics101/

A lot of times the LCD screen is replaced for Backlight replacement, because some LCD screens require this.

Backlights cost more than an Inverter, and of course an LCD screen costs much more.

This is an example of an Inverter for an HP pavilion dv2000 series Notebook PC,

http://www.buy.com/prod/new-usa-lcd-inverter-hp-pavilion-dv2000-dv2100-dv2200/q/sellerid/23962916/loc/101/217117085.html

The above is ONLY an example.
An Inverter MUST be matched to THE LCD screen.

Stating Pavilion dv2000 is only stating the series.
The EXACT Product Number is located on the bottom of the laptop in a white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number

Also, there is an HP part number on the Inverter.
Match the HP part number to the listing for the Inverter you are going to purchase.

A reputable seller will list THE HP part number so that the buyer will purchase THE correct Inverter.

How to replace an Inverter in an HP Pavilion dv2000 series Notebook PC;

1) Service Manual

I'm going to use the HP pavilion dv2000 CTO Notebook PC as an example.
The Service Manual is the same for All of the Pavilion dv2000 series of Notebook PC's,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1817074&

On this page click on the file name >
HP Pavilion dv2000 Notebook PC Maintenance and Service Guide.

After you click on the above link it may take up to 30 seconds, or more, to see the first page.
In the meantime you will be viewing a blank white page.
The PDF file is downloading in the background.

In the Bookmarks menu to the left, click on the + sign to the left of >
Maintenance and Service Guide.

Click on the + sign next to > Removal and Replacement Preliminaries
Read up on Anti-Static Precautions

Now go back, and click on the + sign next to >
Removal and Replacement Procedures.

Scroll the sidebar down, and click on > 5.12 Display Assembly

Direct information on replacing the Inverter is on Page 152.
(Page Number Box at the top of the PDF file, to the right of the blue Down Arrow)

I use a computer pick to ease up on one side of the rubber Screw Covers. You may have a similar device you can use.
If you are careful with the rubber Screw Covers, you can reuse them.
There is a contact cement on the covers.

Lay them down glue side up on a piece of paper.
(They do like to stick to the computer pick, and your fingers, however. Giving you a 'heads-up'.
Try to keep the glue side from picking up debris, however)

If you need guidance, no matter what it is concerning this procedure, please post in a Comment.

One more thing that pertains to the HP pavilion dv2000, dv6000, and dv9000 series of Notebook PC's, that I think you should be made aware of,

My HP Pavilion dv2000 turns on, but screen is black


If the laptop appears to boot up but the LCD screen is black, then the problem is a back-light fault caused by either a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to determine the fault and fix :-

Got a HP DV2000 boot then freezes


Hi,
It seems that the problem is with the display chipset ( assuming its with Nvidia chipset model).
If you are not a technical person, take out the mother board and do a reflow of the chipset with a blower or else take it to a qualified service person or authorised service center.

HP recall this model because of damage in the gpu(graphics processor) the main problem it is that you didnt have video in your lcd neighter on external monitor but your leds turn on right,
The solution:
you need to reheat your gpu for resoldering it and put a few termic compound to avoid new damage. I know this is a very complicated fix, we can repair your motherboard for $80 in our shop if you liked

Hp pavilion dv2000 notebook will not boot up


hi,
i m in Hong Kong. The stupid HP repair center charged US 90 just for inspection!!!!! They they said the whole motherboard had to be replaced, thts additional US 630 dollars, the thing is just 1.5 yr old. They also said i don get to keep the broken mother board after replacement. This is simply irresponsible, unethical, sleazy and UNJUST!!

Thanks. right now the computer is fixed for US70. when i hv time, i'll open it up and see if i can figure it out how it was fixed. The shop suggested tht the computer wont last too long. This is such bad quality for HP... Sorry, i hv to do the following for other victims to find this easily:
