DV6000 GT375EA#ABU Only powers on from its battery

My DV6000 will not power on from mains power or show any signs of life apart from the blue led on SPS-USB PWR CONNECTOR BD (65W) - PAV which does illuminate even when not connected to the laptop systemboard and has mains power connected to it.

The laptop does power up and work fine from a charged battery from my other DV6000. I have stripped the laptop and tried changing the SPS-USB PWR CONNECTOR BD (65W) - PAV for the same part number SPS-USB PWR CONNECTOR BD (65W) - PAV from my other DV6000 but it still will not power up from mains power ?

I have a soldering iron but zero knowledge of components or what to look for, I would really appreciate any advice on what to do or if there particular component that is likely to be causing the problem.

    The warranty ran out over a year ago and I brought this from a friend so i dont think HP will be much help. Im sure this is only a matter of replacing a component but im not to good at component level.



    Thanks for your help

I have had the same issues with my HP dv6208 laptop. I ended up sending my laptop in at their expense to get it fixed. My suggestion to you is to go to the HP support website and chat or call them. The dv6000 series laptops had several issues with the MB and wireless card. they should replace the failed part for free even if the laptop is past its regular warranty. HP extended the warranties on several of these laptops in this product line because of the failures. You have to tell them the serial number, product number and model and they tell you wether it is covered or not. Otherwise I am pretty sure you are looking at a new motherboard for your laptop. Hope this helps...

No charging light but charger works and no lights or life on the laptop even with a charge battery. it just will not start or show any sign of life


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

No power


Look if you can safely get it apart for the fuse inside the unit and if possible test the power cord and where it connects, this is the place to begin---total dead units are usually easy to fix, follow the AC voltage from the wall or voltage source inside to the fuse etc.

You may have already tried this... Please remove the battery to see if the machine responds to pluged in power by itself. Press the power button for about 30 seconds befor pluging in the power... this is usually the way to reset the laptop. A defective battery can keep the machine from working.
If there is no response, the motherboard may have been damaged or a solder gotten loose, either way, it would need to be taken apart to verify and the solution could be expensive.

Not power on


Your Pavilion DV6000 laptop is the key to your productivity, which is why it is essential that it turns on when you need it. The DV6000 is lighter than comparable models from other brands, and has a large, sharp display. While it has plenty of processing power, the DV6000 can have normal boot problems as well as problems caused by faulty battery packs that were installed in some units. Attempt to troubleshoot the laptop and find out if the laptop is eligible for a new battery pack.

1.Hard reset your laptop if there is no life at all. Unplug all peripheral devices and remove the battery. Unplug the AC cable and press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to drain all power. Reconnect the AC cable and hit the power button.
2.Verify that the battery pack is on the recall list if the laptop powers up without it. Fill out the form on the battery pack recall website (http://bpr.hpordercenter.com/hbpr/). You will have to input the serial number of the battery pack as well as a location to ship the replacement battery if you are eligible.
3.Hold the AC cable where it plugs into the laptop and wiggle it while hitting the power button one time. LEDs that come on and off intermittently indicate a faulty power cable. Order a replacement power cable through HP or a third-party vendor.
4.Write down any visual or audio error codes such as LEDs blinking or unusual beeping. The error sequence will be helpful when talking to an HP support person.

I hope this may help your concern.

The fact that the laptop is recognising the battery's presence and yet is not receiving any power from it is not a good sign I'm afraid. There are batteries available online for around £40 but you may want to take the laptop to a repair centre first where they can usually tell you (for around £7-£10) if it is definitely a battery malfunction or not before you splash out on a new one.
Sorry I can't be any more help, battery issues are usually pretty black and white, they're either broken or working. Hope you manage to get it sorted either way.

The laptop doesn't boot. Its dead. I tried connecting the charger, but it doesn't shows any signs of charging. It doesn't even show the laptop is charging.i.e no led is lit when charger is connected.Please...


Hi.

If it is completely dead check the voltage at power adapter DC contacts using a multimeter.

If there is voltage within 0.5 Volts from specifications, then try starting the laptop with no internal battery. A shorted battery may cause the laptop not starting.

If battery and adapter are OK, then the problem is the DC socket in the laptop motherboard. The laptop must be taken apart and the solder joints soldered back. This is a delicate job and must be done by an experienced repairer.

In some case the whole power circuit or the main board may be faulty. Testing is done reading Ohms at DC socket solder joints on main board (or power board, depending on model).

Regards.

Ginko.
