Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I turned it upside down and cleaned it as best as I could, saved off all the important files. I let it dry for a few hours and the keys are sticky (not a big surprise on that one, I plan to change out the keypad) however now the sound isn't working at all. This is my work laptop and it is no longer under warranty. I dont want to tell my boss that I spilled anything on it, but I want my sound back. I tried headphones to see if it was the speakers, or possibly the main board inside, the sound didn't work with headphones either so Im guessing its an expensive fix. Any suggestions?
Yes most likely this is a main board problem. The one thing you should have done was keep it upside down take out the battery and leave it that way for days. I have almost the exact same laptop and had a beer spilled all over the keyboard. Flipped over removed battery and then had fan blow on it for 3 days. Had no problems besides a little bit of sticky keys. There are usb audio solutions. Try usb speakers for one. but as for actually solving the problem. It would need a whole new main board. Which does get pretty expensive for the part itself. If you have any other questions or need further assistance please let me know. Also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
