Hp notebook zd8000 wont power on

When i plug in the power cord and press the power button the only light that flashes is the battery light, it only flashes for a few seconds then stops. the light on the ac adapter is on so i think the power ac is good because if it wasn't i don't think even the batter light would work. without the ac pluged in the battery light does not go on. Do you think i should order another plug and see if that is the problem. my laptop is 3 years old.

In this case i suggest you to remove the battery from the notebook and try to power on the notebook with the help of AC adapter so that you come to know whether the issue is with the Battery or AC adapter. If still the notebook is not getting power with AC adapter you need to take for service retailer store and fix the issue.

Hp ZD8000 worked witout problem. Got it out today ,hit the power button and initial fan noise and leds lit - thats it . no screen nothing. Any simple tests?

Hard reset. Turn off the notebook. Remove the battery. Remove the power cord. Press and hold the power button for thirty seconds. Do not expect the notebook to turn on. We are trying to reset something internally. After that put the battery in. Now, the power cord too. See if you can login to windows. Hope this helps.

I have a HP ZD8000 laptop, which wont turn on. When I press the on button the LED's light up, and sometimes the fans begin to fire up, but only for a split second. When I press the on button whilst both...

Try just the power supply fromt he wall to the laptop without the battery inserted. If it comes on and then turns off, you probably have a bad power connection. DC power jack may be bad and would need to be replaced or re-soldered.

My hp zd8000 switched off when using it and wont go back on! Any ideas?

Unplug the laptop (if plugged in). Take out the battery, and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds, plug in the power cord and see if you can power the unit on at that point in time (without the battery in). If it powers on then insert the battery. If this does not work then contact HP to find your closest authorized HP service provider (assuming you have a warranty on the product still).
