I have a HP DV6000 and recently my power jack went out and I could not charge my laptop battery. Now it was charging with the older power jack, but I took it to a computer repair shop and got my laptop back and now it will run while on charge, but take it off charge and the battery will say 0% remaining. I have tried a new battery, reimage computer, everything i know of and it still shows 0%. I did run the battery tester and it said that my battery was invaild so I got a freinds battery (who has the same computer as mine) and it still said the same thing. I travel alot and this computer must come with me and be able to run on battery. Please help.

If your battery, charger, and DC Jack are ok, then the most common problem is the surface mount transistors on your HP's main board called MOSFET's. They are small 30V N channel 8 pin components soldered to the main board. The boards also have transistor circuits which switch back and forth between a charging and discharging state. However these rarely ever fail. The MOSFETS fail because of the thermal loads which they must endure. Although some notebooks (like the Gateway I'm currently on) have a DC jack which serves dual purpose of supplying DC 19V AND connecting/disconnecting charging circuit. However your HP dv6K does not. However it's worth mentioning that these models have had all sorts of problems...most notably poor thermal design to begin with that usually creates solder connection problems with the main chipset especially on AMD models. Good luck.. :)

My Hp dv6000 laptop battery is not working?
Your battery is likely dead. Batteries over time lose their
charge and eventually fail completely. I had a DV9000 laptop and after about a
year or so it would report the battery was fully charged but it would only last
15 or so minutes before dying completely. Yours has probably met this fate.
Also, the HP DV6000 and DV9000 series of laptops (some
batches) had defective batteries out of the box that there was a wide spread
recall on (although HP did not publicize this much unfortunately so many that
actually were affected never was notified of it, you might want to check HP's
website to see if your products SKU was part of the recall.
But if your system is out of warranty they probably won't
honor the recall at this point.
First try to reset the battery to see if it helps any by doing the following: Turn off all power saver settings on your laptop, disconnect the laptop for the ac adapter. Then use your laptop and run the battery down ignoring any low battery messages until it dies. Then let it fully charge for a night without turning it on, and see if it has saved any charge. If it still hasn't saved any charge, it seems like the only option is that its a dead battery and needs to be replaced. Best of luck!
If the notebook does not charge even after replacing it with new battery and checking with several chargers then it is laptop power jack issue.
You may need to replace it. However to confirm the issue is with power jack just remove the battery and try to power on the notebook only with AC adapter. If it does not then it is the power jack which is allowing the ac power to be charged.
If your notebook is in warranty then you can ship it to HP and if it is out of warranty then check the link below, you can purchase the power jack of the laptop from here.
Hi, believe it or not?; sometimes the current in certain areas of the home or apartment have separate power circuits from the main direct current system. Check to make sure there is electrical current running through your socket, and or light switch to open the circuit. Thanks, paul7of9
The charging process is suspended temporarily because the battery has overheated. My brand new DV5 (3 weeks old) does the same, because it's really hot here.
Turn the laptop off and the battery should charge. Also, when you do not need the battery and are running off the mains, remove it from the laptop. Keeping a battery at 100% wears it 4 times faster than doing regular charge/discharge cycles.
Solution for HP Pavilion DV6000 Battery Not Charge
Reinstalling the power management software has just fixed it for me. Go to device manager and under batteries, unistall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery. Go to Actions on the menu bar and select ’scan for hardware changes’. It will reinstall it and hopefully start charging immediately (mine did anyway).
If your HP Pavillion dv6000 has a battery that won’t charge yet still turns on when plugged in, turn off the laptop and remove the battery then wait for around 30 seconds, re-insert it and turn it back on, the charging update should say, plugged in, charging.
Just got it to charge again.While the laptop is powered and in Windows XP, press and hold the POWER button until it dies. Then, remove the dv6000 laptop battery. Power it back up and enter Windows. Then, re-insert the battery.
So I always remove the Hp dv6000 battery after I have powered down the laptop, and I have not had any battery problems since then!
I had the same issue my fix was a new cmos battery that was only $10.00 and install updated bios software from HP
I had the dv6000 battery problem where it showed my battery NOT CHARGING. I took it apart because my QUICKPLAY would not work either and the QUICKPLAY lights stayed on even after I shut down the laptop. I found that the black ribbon cable on the right (the other looks the same but you can see it is for the power button) was slightly kiltered in the flat socket it goes to underneath the area where the quickplay button is. I straightened it out and made sure it was pushed all the way in and locked and put it all back together and everything worked perfectly after that. About a month before that my POWER and SOUND didn`t work. I did the same thing to fix those problems. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THOSE CABLES EXACTLY RIGHT in there, IT MAY JUST BE YOUR PROBLEM TOO.
Some people dont realise that you should avoid short charges and discharges, if your batery does not go above 40% mabe its charge memory thinks its full. to fix this problem let the batery run fully down, then charge it all the way again. try it a few times if it doesnt work. and you have to go all the way, not let windows go into hibernation. to do that you need to get the batery low, then boot to some boot disk and let it sit till the batery dies.
HP has posted BIOS updates to address battery problems as well as the auto startup on some.If you will post the full model number,someone can help you find your driver/updates page.
