Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

HP Pavilion Dv6000z will not turn on

This laptop will not power up with or w/o the batt. I believe that the batt is bad, but it is my understanding that with the batt taken out, the unit should pwr up when plugged into the wall. The wall pwr adapter has tested good. With the batt in place and pwr cord attached, 1 of the computer LED pwr indicator lights comes on and stays on. No lights come on when only the pwr cord is attached and batt has been removed. When attempting to turn on the computer with the batt in place and pwr cord attached, all LED indicator lights momentarily (~1 second) come on and then turn off. This includes the above mentioned pwr LED. Then a second later the pwr LED will light up and stays on. Without the batt in place nothing happens when attempting to turn on. Help please!

Florida Bob,

Battery is part of the power/charging circuit. As you have found it needs to be in place; kaput or not.

Believe your problem to be Power MOSFET's.

SOURCE: HP Pavilion dv4000 battery won't charge

all you really need to do to find out if it might be broken is to check and see if that DC Jack on the computer is "wiggling" around, if the center part is moving around. If it is, then there is a chance that it is broken. I used to work at a computer store where the owner would resolder new DC power Jacks into laptops, but he was the only one in town who did that. So you might want to check around at the local computer repair or electronics stores to see if someone does that type of thing. Also, have the power supply checked out, it could just be dead.

Power drain would be a better solution in this case.
1.first shut down the comp
2.unplug the charger
3. remove the battery
   and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .

SOURCE: pavilion dv7 starts up then shuts down

This sounds like you have a bad DC jack on your motherboard. This is one of the most common problems with laptops and can be caused by jarring the DC plug in or hitting it into something or simply from normal use. As a result the pins on the DC jack become loose and consequently do not provide a charge to the laptop and battery. Wiggling the plug can make the loose pins contact sometimes which would explain why it "sometimes" works when you unplug it and plug it back in. Of course if this is the case then your battery is mostly out of power and that is why it powers off after a couple seconds. This repair costs between $150-300 from a professional repair shop and I would not recommend trying it yourself unless you've had experience soldering DC jacks
Another issue could be the CPU fan/heat skin if this is failing or the CPU is overheating the laptop will power off.
Please comment if you need further assistance

SOURCE: HP DV9410US laptop turns on for 1/2 sec and shuts down.

Yes, there is a solution to this issue. Go to:

and look up your p/n # on the back of your laptop. If it matches, just call HP at in North America call 1-866-671-7362 from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm MST, 7 days a week. Why they never had a recall is beyond me. I have had two of these replaced one DV9743us and one DV9410us. There is a catch however... HP will only replace this free if it is within 24 months of the start of your original warranty. If it is out of the Enhancement warranty time frame, they will replace the Motherboard for $259 (included shipping, parts, and services). Not bad for what they are doing. Should there be a recall? YES~!!!

New batt

there's a really good offer here - NewEgg, costs $109. Basically, the warrenty lasts for year (parts+labor). However, I wouldn't guarantee it. I know for a fact that HP tends to deny any liability in some cases and refuse to replace products. I hope that you'll have better experience that I had.
Plus, according to HP's details on their battery, your laptop doesn't support this specific battery-
