Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Over several weeks the on button has become balkier & balkier to start the machine. When we do get it to work the laptop runs normally, but now it seems to have failed altogether. The quickplay will power up annoyingly as ever just by accidentally brushing by the clickless button.
Any good troubleshooting guides for this? Good sources for parts?
If the physical switch isn't the problem what else need I think about? Anything a guy good with tools & delicate parts should leave to an "expert?"
WORKAROUND: until I get brave enough to open the case and fix/swap the cable I use the QuickPlay touch button to start system. I must hit CTL/ALT/DEL when the first HP screen appears which causes Windows to start normally without going through the QuickPlay/hibernate hassle. Hope this helps a little.

Switch the wires from the quick play to the power button the wires are under keyboard

The solution is to replace the chip that is underneath the power buttom (it runs the speakers too). First remove the battery. Then remove the three silver screws that are underneath the battery (the ones in the middle - not the black ones at the edge). Now flip over the laptop and open it. Use a thin screw driver to pry off the switch cover - start at the sides in the seam next to the esc and del keys. you will see a small green chip on the left side. It is secured to the cover with a single srew. Unplug the wires and replace with a new board (http://www.google.com/products?q=33AT8BB0017&oe=UTF-8&ved=0CBQQrQQwAA&scoring=p)
