HP 6500 laptop media bar not lighted and unresponsive. No sound
There is a strip of controls above the keyboard that is normally lit up in blue. I can control volume and manual playback for a dvd. It is now not lit up and the controls don't work. Moreover, there is no sound, even though the speaker icon shows sound (i.e. it's not on mute) and the device manager shows everything is working. When the headphones are plugged in, I CAN hear sound. So, no sound without the headphones plugged in.

The HP2530p buttons are "touch sensitive" and are located at the top of the keyboard just above the F4 & F5 Keys along the strip where the power switch is. Just touch the orange light and it will change to blue (on) this is the same for the volume screen etc, blue is on, orange is off, Just touch and play
You can enable your wireless lan via quick launch button on the strip , when tapped it will show you blue light when disabled it will show you with orange light, if you see that light is still blue but you are unable to find any wireless network in network and sharing center
simply open network and sharing center > go to change adapter settings
right click on wireless network connection and select enable ,
now your wireless should work,

Two things that we seriously consider, one is that if the lights on the keyboard is lit? Normally, when you turn on the laptop, lights on the keyboard lit so that the motherboard which is inside of your laptop will generate the necessary circuitry for your pc. Second is that if the monitor turns it on . Well we can diagnose your request, make sure you turn off the laptop and remove the cables and battery to it . Then press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Then reinsert the cables and battery on your laptop and turn on the laptop. Observe it very closely. If the lights on the keyboard did not lit, then there is a problem with the motherboard. For that, you need to call HP and set an appointment with a technician to replace the motherboard. Otherwise if it is lit (keyboard), then check if the monitor is on. If the screen is off, then there is a problem with the video card which is also inside of your laptop. If you dont know how to remove and reinsert it back, then call a technician. If you know, then try to reseat the video card. If the symptom persist, then call HP to replace your video card.
Your wireless command switch is not a physical switch. It should be one of the touch sensitive contacts on the media control bar (right above the keyboard). It should look like a little straight up line with comas coming from the top (the idea being a tower sending out radio waves). You should just be able to touch it with the pad of your finger and activate the wireless which will then light up blue like the other "non" buttons.
If you are talking about the quick volume buttons above the keyboard then it could be two things. first the cable that goes from the mother board to the control is bad or the volume control part under the plastic has gone bad. If it is any of these then the buttons should have stopped lighting up blue. If they have stayed lit up then it is a software problem.
DV9000s has I believe 6 small screws holding it in place. The keyboard has three, one in the wireless compartment and two in the battery compartment. The six small screws that hold the power and media plate on is in the battery compartment. Pry up the power bar with your finger tips starting on the right side and work your way over to the left. The movement is going to be restricted because of the power and media cables attaching it to the motherboard but it will give you enough room to pry the keyboard up and move it out of the way. You do not have to remove the power strip if you don't want to, if you do want to move it, the flat cables should be disconnected at the motherboard, just pull them free of the sockets, there is not lock tab like there is on the power strip itself. There is a small black plug on the power strip on the left side where the flat cables attach, this just pulls free of the strip.
You have a FNC key on your keyboard. Since it is a laptop, your keyboard can not have all the keys that a normal keyboard has. This is handled by making some keys perform two or more functions. Thus, the alternate key use if the blue keys (function key is depressed). You will pribably find that there is a light labeled as FNC where you see your caps lock, num lock etc.. it sounds to me that you have your keyboard in alternate function mode so that the keys are performing the alternate functions (probably the numeric keys if it is a normal configuration..).
