    Same problem here

  • suechan28 Jan 09, 2008

    I had the same problem (the laptop is about 6 months old) - the buttons flash but switch off again, then the computer can't start up. The volume light flashes red while all the other lights are blue. I went through MANY steps wit HP helpdesk (email and phone) to try to get it fixed; finally they put me in contact with a real person. He replaced a couple of parts, but the same thing happened, so he took it again to work on it - said the whole inside of the computer was now new; ie there should be no more problems. It is now only a few weeks later and the volume light is flashing red on start-up again and the laptop is making those same noises. So far it is still working but I am wondering for how long.

    is the hp a lemon

  • node Sep 07, 2008

    I have a hp dv6000 series. But when i press the power button - does not boot!. It started with the internal speakers having problems but at the same time starting it needed some hard press on the power button, I was unable to turn off the pc from the button.
    Now, I opened the top cover having speakers and quickplay lights, tried to fix the power cables by exchanging them in some way, but now the PC is totally silent wont start. Does these two cables under the k-board have something in common, as in when one is not connected the other is dead? Please help, some ideas on the trick will be much appreciated? Thanks


  • Bill Van Goor Oct 29, 2008

    My laptop does the same thing. The power button does nothing (I turn it on and off using the "quick play" button) and the laptop speakers (Altec Lansing) do not work. External speakers connected through the headphone jack work fine.

    I have this problem as well. Unfortunately, the problem with my HP is that the power button does not depress fully. I called HP support and though my laptop qualifies under the extended warrenty, the power button is not covered so they cannot help me unless I pay an extra charge. When I start the laptop with the Quickplay button, there is no way to get to windows besides hibernating.



    I am putting money away for a macbook.

    I have the same problem. Power button wont work. Can start PC through QuickPlay button but when I try to go to Windows, PC hibernates.

  • flyboysmb Dec 27, 2008

    We have the DV6000 RK654AV. Pressing the power button & quick play buttons result in the same thing. The lights turn on (including the USB mouse, for a second or two, but then they go off. Sometimes I can mess with the quick play buttons & get the lights to stay on & then I hear a little life from "inside" but nothing. This is about 1.5 to 2 years old.

    We'll see how I get on


  • Anonymous Feb 18, 2009

    I had the same problem. Mine wouldn't start up but all the lights came on & you could hear the fan kicking in for a second. I have no idea what i did but i took it off charge. Took out the battery. Turned off the wirless and let it sit for 10 minutes. I put the battery back in after then & it came on straight away

  • shanthi2522 Apr 07, 2009

    i took off the memmorey card and fixed it back and i turn on the computer it make some noies so i switch off the plug 2/3 time and i can't still turn on my computer please help me to fix this trouble.thank you.

  • suechan28 May 11, 2010

    zedmanauk's information sounds helpful but is only "available in North America for 24 months" (those of us in the rest of the world often have to deal with this situation).

    My lap-top, supposedly fixed with completely new hardware, has again gone to blue-screen, restarted etc. I have needed to re-download and install all the upgrades, which in Australia means paying for the extra bandwidth that requires.

    My 'solution' for the moment is to stay late at work and use the computer here! I will probably end up with a new non-HP lap-top.

This is apparently a common problem for HP dv6000/dv9000 laptops. HP has extended the warranty on these models for this problem. See this page:

The problem is the ribbon cable to the power switch is bad, sound goes thru same cable. Look for a new cable on ebay. That fixed mine. It turns on and has sound now.

Well guys my problem started by one side of the speakers not woking, then they both went dead, soon after the power light went off and then i was unable to start it not even with the quickplay button because it would just hibernate. it is not a faulty os nor is it any sort of software problem. its the fact that the hp customer service is not good at all and their ability to use good computers parts does not exist. so... if u want to use my solution first u have to make sure u have the same problem... try with all ur might pushing down the power button without hitting the quickplay button and see if that will get ur laptop on. then, try applying pressure above the power button and the area around it see if u can get it to turn the light on, if u can then all u have to do is unplugg the ribbon like cable, clean out the connectors and plug it back in. hope it helps.

    And KOTL is same poor quality. You'll end up with the same problem very soon.
    Unfortunately, 120 days warranty for NO VIDEO repair,- which is BGA REFLOW/REBALL, - is not enough. Cause after this repair it'll work ~ 6 month, and quit. Those boards are not very good.

    hey guys i found the solution
    you need a KOLT E220709 (Arround 12 USD on Ebay).

    - If your power button is not working, your sound should be off
    too, you can move the right kolt to left and fix the power button and
    sound. If you need the QuickPlay, get a new Kolt and change it.

Newer HP Pavilion dv6000 turned off while in use and wont turn on


1.Start your computer and see if your hear your fan noise,and cannot see anything on screen then there is problem with your power supply.

2.If you cannot hear your fan noise,and do not see anything on screen,then there is problem with your motherboard

3.if you hear fan noise and can see something on screen,then it is the issue with your hard disk (very less cases)

Mostly it would be the 2nd case that you will have to get your motherboard replaced

I had a similar problem with my pavilion. They have a cooling fan design that allows for lint buildup and subsequent overheating. You could try using a compressed air and blowing out the exhaust vent area for the fans.

Laptop Pavillion DV6188eu doesn't start up


From what you are describing, the motherboard has failed. I would however like you to try a couple of things though. First remove the hard drive and see if the computer will go to the BIOS screen. If it does not, then the Motherboard has definately died. If you can get to the BIOS, then you might consider a hard drive failure, or your windows installation is so corrupt, it is causing this problem. I would however lean toward a bad MOBO....seems this model, the DV6000 and the DV9000 have serious cooling issues and tend to burn their mobos up. HP recently started updating the BIOS files for these models so the fans and processor run more efficiently to keep the laptop cooler.

Power Issue turn on and is turns off after 2 sec


Could be a glitched battery. Turn it on without battery installed. Also, to eleviate the memory - take it out. The unit will still turn on. I have to go along with HP support, that's it's probably the mother board. Now all is not gloomy. Hp has extended their warranty on many models, Dv2000-Dv6000 to name a few. Ask for a supervisor.
