Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

1 Answer

No Lamps with battery

I've got the typical DV1000 issues of working-not working but I also have an additional issue. When it does work, the lamps will not come on when the battery is used. I have to start it up using AC in order for everything to run fine. But if I turn it on using ONLY the battery, everything comes up and the OS loads and can continue working but the LAMPS will not come on at all. It'll be on for hours with the lamps off. Any ideas, any one???

My passing lamps and headlights keep burning out and now this morning my headlight and passing lamps are out all together. Does anyone know what is causing this on my 2005 Heritage Softail Classic? I...

Hi Tony, obviously there is a problem in your light circuit. For your lights to keep burning out you have either to much voltage/amperage getting to them or a loose or broken ground in that front light circuit. I would first do a charging system test at the battery, voltage at 3000 RPM'S should be 14.3 to 14.7 volts anything higher replace the voltage regulator and make sure it has a tight clean ground. Other than that you will have to check all your wiring and connections from the ignition switch to the passing lamp switch and the high/low beam switch for worn or chaffed wires and corroded, broken or loose pins.

2001 Monte Carlo SS 3.8 v6 Rear park lights are out as well as the dash lights, brake lights work headlights work front running and park lights work, all turn signal lights work. replaced headlight switch...

Park, Tail, Marker Lamps, and License
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, turn on when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or the HEAD position, or anytime the headlamps are requested. The RT I/P #1 fuse in the RH I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to both the park lamp relay switch contacts and to the park lamp relay coil circuit. The park lamp relay coil is controlled by the body control module (BCM). When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the BCM energizes the park lamp relay coil control circuit.
Current flows from the park lamp relay switch to both front and rear park lamp fuses and to their respective park/tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G302. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G302. The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lamps from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left on. If the park lamps are turned on after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain on until turned off or until the battery runs dead.

Did you the REAR PARK LP fuse 15 amp in the right insturment panel fuse box.

Replaced lamp in 55vg825 approx 1500hrs ago & lately the picture has lost brightness compared to when the new bulb was installed. Is there another adjustment or is the bulb defective already? Past...


You are correct about lamps working or not, but that is the extremes. Over the course of operation all lamps lose brightness as the hours add up. All lamps will lose their brightness over time.

Typically lamps only last at best 6000 to 8000 hours. That is not long if the unit is used most of the day everyday. In addition the cheaper the quality of the lamp, cost and manufacture, the quicker they go down hill.

Assuming that you have a low quality lamp what you are experiencing is normal. You may be able to improve the brightness and clarity of the picture by cleaning the lenses, mirrors and screen. I have a tip at

This tip is labeled projection tv but is also appropriate for cleaning an LCD or DLP unit.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

My tail lights for my 2002 ford f-150 doesn't work.

When you say tail lights, is this the parking lamps or the stop lamps ?

If it is the parking lamps:
Do the front ones work ?
Do you have power at the 4 pin trailer tow adapter for the parkign lamps ?
- If not could be the fuse for the parking lamps, engine compartment Fuse panel, Fuse # 6.

If this is the stop lamps, try raising the tilt all the way on the steerign wheel, and see if they work again ( this is if the truck bed ones do not work and the CHMSL / 3rd brake lamp does work ).
- Some times the connector can be pulled apart, causing issues with the brake lamps on the truck.
