Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
The blue LED light doesn't come on, or if it does, just for a moment to tease me and then fades. The computer is not charging, and I tried to replace the AC adaptor and that is not the problem because it still doesn't charge. HP says it's the motherboard and will be 250.00, and it is 2 years old, so it is out of warrranty. Any ideas?
If you have tested the power adaptor with a multi-meter to confirm it is OK or the other adaptor is also OK assuming that it is the correct voltage and at least the same current rating. Then the fault is most likely the power connector in the laptop.
To confirm this, power up as normal with the power adaptor connected and switched on, when the blue LED dims wriggle the power connector where it connects into the laptop and if the LED comes on or blinks, that means that you have a faulty power connector, it couls be a dry solder joint at the power connector.
It is possible that the power adaptor is shutting down (thermal overload) due to insufficient current capacity, Check the Amp rating of the laptop, it is usually on the lable on the botom of the laptop and check it against the power adaptor, the adaptor should be equal too or greater that the laptop's current rating.
To fix a faulty connector, you can dismantle the laptop and with a fine tip temperature controlled soldering iron, resolder the power connector and hopefully this will fix your prolem.
