On the DV4 that I'm working on, multiple known good chargers were tried and multiple batteries were tried. The laptop would not charge the batteries. Unlike other laptops this one will not work if the battery is removed on AC power.

I have replaced the DC Jack where the power cable plugs in. I believe this problem is with the mosfet on the motherboard as described in this thread.

Here are some pictures of the component on my motherboard.

To be clear this is not the DC Jack where you plug in the cable from your charger. It's the other end of the wire inside the laptop below the battery if the battery is at the top.

I wish I knew more about electrics to repair this. The vietnemese poster suggested connecting the soldier pads, but I do not know if he meant to combine 1,2,3 and 5,6,7,8 or if he meant to connect 1 to 5 and 2, to 6, etc.

I believe this is the component diagram

No power, will not turn on.

For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:

DV4 won't charge

Maybe it's the charger or dc jack that was broken. Just test with a known working adapter connected, see if it charges, if yes, then your charger is broken, while if not, then you have to resoldered your dc power jack.

It sounds like the problem is your power adapter, not the battery. Check the adapters output using a vollt meter. The reading should equal to the output printed on the adapter's label which should also be equal to the input printed on the laptop's label

This is a sign of a bad video display adapter. Depending on your laptop model, if this adapter is integrated int the motherboard, you will have to replace the motherboard. However, if it is a daughter board that fits into a slot on the motherboard, you will only have to replace this daughter board.

Hp pavilion dv4 screen will not work. everything

Few trouble shoot solution when it comes to these HP Laptop from 08-09.

1). Remove battery and ram. Plug in AC Adapter and insert only ONE RAM into a slot. Boot up and see if this will turn on display (it work on a HP Dv4-1225dx) IF it works then shut down and re insert the two ram and should be good to go :)

2). If your tech savvy remove keyboard and gain access to LCD flex ribbon cable to check if cable is loose (or go on a limb and replace the lcd flex cable ). I would detach it and re attach the ribbon back to motherboard. ( This happen sometimes by chance)

3). Your LCD is shot dead so it will need to be replaced. Current used LCD can range from $40-$50 and new ones with warranty $60-$100. HP is set up for easy LCD removal so shouldn't take more then 30mins to replace, just be careful when handling the ribbon and inverter cables.
