Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Posted by Anonymous on
When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

I have the same problem as well with my pavilion dv6000, From my research it's know that these batteries and chargers were "built to die". The answers HP has provided me with were as follows:
-My Adaptor was broken and not reaching the port well enough to charge it.
- I replaced my adaptor... no help, it would flash as if it is charging and almost immediatly stop.
-My battery was dead, and the average life-span of these batteries is 18 months. If it stops working you must replace it.
- My laptop started showing symptoms at 8 months (now 14 months) and has been living for 6 months plugged in slowly reducing to 0% charge and not charging.
I have come to believe that this hp dv6000 battery is the main problem and I am hoping this is the problem and that it hopefully is in your situation too. I am currently looking into buying a battery at the moment. If you are thinking this is the issue of your laptop as well, I reccomend http://www.diggingshop.com/laptop-battery/hp-pavilion-dv6000-replacement.htm as a cheap, efficiant place to get your replacement hp dv6000 battery
