Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
Pavilion pv4 battery wont charge but runs plugged in
Posted by Anonymous on
If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it
with a new one.
To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,
If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.
To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

The problems with the HP Pavilion (Particularly the ZD8000) are sadly well-known by HP. It's not a problem with the battery or the charger or anything you can easily fix. The problem is heat. If you search long enough, you'll find hundreds of people with three problems: 1) the battery stops holding a charge after about 8 months, they buy a new one and get the same problem; 2) certain keys stop working on the keyboard, they remove the battery and the keys work again; 3) permanent lines start to appear on the display and never go away.
Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about these problems with the ZD8000, except stop using it as a laptop and ditch the battery. I have been problem-free since I ditched my third battery and just use it with a power cord.
Last year, I filed a formal complaint with the Better Business Bureau regarding HP's failure to acknowledge this problem and recall the machine. Each time I called service, I was instructed to follow the battery initialization procedure. All this does is allow support to get rid of you for 24 wasted hours, after which you have to call again and talk to some one new who tells you to do the same thing. The problem is, the procedure fails because the battery won't hold a chage in the first place. If you get to the end of the procedure with them after wasted days, they tell you to buy a new battery.
The HP ZD8000 is defective and never should have been released with a Pentium 4 processor. It's too hot and fries the battery and damages the screen.

It sounds like you have a faulty power jack, and possibly a dead battery as well. You should take it to a person you may know that can order and solder a new one in or take it to your local electronics repair shop. I do repairs like this on a daily basis for my computer business.
