    Hook up an external monitor and see if you can get video to the external monitor.

If neither of those worked then its the motherboard that has to be bad. Needs to be replaced.

Took our HP Pavilion DV6500 to the local service center and because the screen does not illuminate when the system is on, they are telling me the motherboard is bad. Have you heard of this problem...


Yes the service center is correct and this type of problem is common with HP motherboards.

If you do have extended warranty this is still valid the of course HP will repair or replace the motherboard for you at no cost. All you have to do is contact HP.

My hp pavilion dv6500 won't boot up. When the power button is depressed, the power light, dvd light, and all other lights near the keyboard come on for a split second, then shut back off The screen never...

Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately

Need polarity of adapter plug for HP Pavilion DV6500

The cables for these are fairly specific, but if you have a cbale that has the same plugs and fits both the transformer side and the computer side, you cna use that as a replacement. The cord itself has no polarity.
Are you looking to do something else here?

Hp dv6500 screen wont turn on

You may be in a hibernate mode. Please remove all power including the battery from the laptop. Then wait about 10 sec. Then plug in only the ac adapter and try to start up the computer.
