HP dv9208 pavilion laptop screensaver & briefcase not working

HP dv9208 series pavilion laptop.
Have laptop 1 yr, up until Dec all was working perfectly.
Laptop was recalled by HP for a defective left hinge. Sent it in for repair 12/12/08 got it back 2/6/09. It came back all messed up; from functional failure of mother board, video driver, disk drive to screen saver not working & color is not right $ unable to add anything to the briefcase.

    Thanks for your advise.

    My hp dv600 when powered up looks normal but if i give it a few seconds the screen goes black and wont come back i shined a light and i do have picture but no light maybe ballast?


    An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
    A Backlight is the additional light source.

    A Backlight is a CCFL.
    Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
    Very similar to the Fluorescent lamps, (Bulbs), used in homes and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

    HP Pavilion dv6000z series Notebook PC, is a general series designation. The EXACT model number is on the bottom of the laptop in a white Service Tag.

    The HP Pavilion dv6000z series of Notebook PC's used either an LED or CCFL type of Backlighting.
    Depends on which model it is.

    As stated in the above information a Backlight is mounted in the back, or on the side of the LCD screen.
    The LCD screen is composed of layers. These layers are held together by a metal frame which emulates a picture frame. If the Backlight is a side unit it will be held in place next to the layers, and inside the metal frame.

    [Which means the LCD screen's metal frame, (LCD Panel Frame), needs to be opened on one side.
    This will leave the layers which compose the LCD screen loose. The layers MUST be held in the proper placing when changing out the Backlight. Not an easy job to accomplish]

    An Inverter is used to change the power coming from the laptop, to be used by the LCD screen, and Backlight.
    90 percent of the time the problem is the Inverter.

    The Inverter for the Pavilion dv6000z series of Notebook PC's is located inside the Display Assembly.

    The Display Assembly is the
    1) Display Enclosure Cover, (Plastic top of laptop),
    2) LCD screen,
    3) LCD Panel Frame, (Metal frame around LCD screen),
    4) Display Bezel, (Thin plastic frame which surrounds the LCD screen in the front)
    5) Camera Module
    6) Inverter
    7) Display Enclosure Cover Hinges (2)
    8) Display Enclosure Cover Hinge Covers (2)
    9) Wireless Antenna Transceivers and Antenna Cables
    10) Microphone receivers and cables
    11) Various mounting screws

    [The Top Cover for a Pavilion dv6000z series Notebook PC is essentially the Palm Rest. The cover under the Keyboard]

    With the Display Bezel removed the Inverter is located at the bottom.
    (Display Assembly removed from laptop first)

    Screensaver is not coming on

    This is a common issue which usually happens if there is a Wireless Mouse or Keyboard being used with the Notebook.
    To confirm this, try unplug the Wireless Mouse/Keyboard and set the Screensaver time to 1 or 2 Minutes and the Screensaver should appear.
    If this happens, you need to check if the PCM and DVDLauncher services are running in the background and disable them from Services window by stopping the Services and setting the Startup Type to Manual.
    Now, connect the Wireless device back to the Notebook and visit the following website to find any Updates available.

    The available Updates will be listed which you need to install in the Notebook to resolve the issue with the Screensaver.
    Hope this helps....

    Hp pavilion dv2000 notebook will not boot up

    i m in Hong Kong. The stupid HP repair center charged US 90 just for inspection!!!!! They they said the whole motherboard had to be replaced, thts additional US 630 dollars, the thing is just 1.5 yr old. They also said i don get to keep the broken mother board after replacement. This is simply irresponsible, unethical, sleazy and UNJUST!!

    Thanks. right now the computer is fixed for US70. when i hv time, i'll open it up and see if i can figure it out how it was fixed. The shop suggested tht the computer wont last too long. This is such bad quality for HP... Sorry, i hv to do the following for other victims to find this easily:
    (can some creative netizen bring this to the public light to pressure HP to do the ethical things??)

    Zd8000 keyboard is skipping letters and spaces

    I also had this very frustrating problem and found that removing the battery that would no longer hold a charge solved the issue. Go figure. Haven't bought a new battery yet to see what that does and I run my computer on AC power all the time now.
