Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

I have an hp pavilion dv9350ea. Over a couple of years the battery became defective and I installed a new one. It showed 30% charge. I disconnected the charger to discharge the battery before re-charging it. After a while the computer went off, and I re-inserted the charge lead. The icon says "0%, plugged in, charging", but the icon does not show the battery level being charged (although removing the lead for a second and replacing it runs the icon through four (increase charge" cycles - around 8 seconds before the charge motion stops), and the battery is not charging at all - even when left overnight! When the power lead is removed, the battery powers the computer for around 1 minute before it dies out. Please help!

If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it
with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

My laptop is not charging. it says 0% available (plugged in, not charging) plz help i have a stock hp pavilion dv5


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

My HP dv4030us is about six years old. I use it, primarily as a desk top, so it is always plugged in to AC. I perodically used the battery, but after 6 years, it would not hold a charge. I bought a...


I had a similar problem with my Acer Aspire after I got a replacement battery about 6 months ago.
I was told to disconnect the laptop, turn it off, disconnect the battery, then press the power button for 30 seconds to reset the charging circuit.

I did this, but it didn't work any better. I thought that since my charger seems to run the computer, but it says 0% Available (plugged in, charging) that there was something wrong with the battery.

So, I contacted the manufacturer of the battery and they said they would refund my money within 7 days after receipt, and they gave me an RMA number for the return on the address label.

I, also, got the battery from Ebay.

Since your problem is that the battery icon with a red X over it says 0%, I would say that maybe the battery is bad, or maybe the battery is not connected very well at the contacts. Maybe blow the contacts off with compressed air in order to clean any dust which may be on it.

I would maybe try another battery to try to see if the charging circuit is bad on the laptop.

If another battery doesn't work, then the charging circuit between the laptop and the battery may be faulty.

Good luck on this repair.

I have to agree that the battery is defective or maybe it is NOT the correct one for your system, although it may be similar.
Did you buy the battery direct from HP a third party?
The AC adapter charger could be defective as well, maybe the defective battery ruined the charger.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Battery led is blinking, this usually means your battery is faulty. Try replacing the battery with a new or tested second hand one.

Hope this helps
