Remove battery and power lead for 30 seconds, then plug both back and start up again. If you still have the same problem, please let us know if any lights (power, hard disk activity) show when you try and start the laptop.
The DV6000 series of notebooks are known to have problematic motherboards. Try the below options:
1) Hold the power button down for 5 second and the machine should shutdown. Then power on again.
2) Flip the laptop over and switch the "lock" switch to "unlock". Then flip the release button to remove the battery for a few seconds. Put the battery back in and try to power the laptop on.
3) Power on the notebook like normal. Watch the Hard Drive activity light (the one that looks like 3 stacked plates), if the screen is blank and the activity light is solid or flashing, you know that the LCD screen is bad and needs to be replaced. If that light is not flashing then the problem is your motherboard and it needs to be replaced. Call HP and ask them if your model was part of a DV6000 series recall, if so your repair costs might be covered.
If there no indicator of power on the laptop , There could be two problems either the AC adapater is bad or the motherboard connector pin or board is faulty.
If you see power light activity , but the screen is blank. try connecting an external monitor to the laptop. Press the Fn+ F8 key to toggle the screen to the external display. If you see the display on the external screen then the LCD is bad . Otherwise its your video card.
The connecting data bus between ur laptop monitor and ur motherboard has either been at fault or else there has been some problem with the wire connection between the two......i.e it has been loosen up....
Get ur laptop checked from the hp representative and if possible get ur laptop insured under different laptop policy schemes.....
Is this laptop brand new? If it is new then it is still under warranty. I suggest you return it for repair or exchange because if you try to fix it you most likely void your warranty.
If it hasn't any warranty then let me know and I will advise what to do.
Try taking the battery out before you turn it on. Have seen completely a dead dead battery keeping a laptop from starting up. Does the hard drive activity light flickering? If it is you can try holding down the Function button (FN) and there should be another button to hit to switch between LCD\CRT.
Can you hear it doing various thinks, ie the hard drive light activity, whilst the screen is blank?
I am thinking that the button the change the screen to the TV or scart socket has bee pressed which means you can choose between the laptop screen and tv screen or an external monitor.
Usually actived unsing combine "function" and "CRT/LCD" buttons (or similar names).
