Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook

1 Answer

Hp zd8000 wont turn on...

Last time it worked, I was watching a movie on it and I didn't realize that the ac adaptor was not connected to the laptop, so it immediately turned off after about 20 minutes or so...
When I connect the laptop to the ac adaptor, the ac power light ticks on and off repeatedly (until I unplug it) and when I hit the ON button the battery light blinks on and off 3 times.
Has anyone else had a similar issue, or perhaps know whats wrong with my laptop? I assume that either the ac adaptor is dead (or close to) or that maybe the power connector is not working.
HELP!!

    OK, so I removed the battery, connected the AC adaptor... when I hit the ON button it doesn't turn on and the AC power light (on the laptop) just flashes on and off...


    Note: The light on the AC adaptor is green.


    Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi thanks for using fixya!!

Try first to remove the battery and connect the AC adapter to your laptop, you will use the power supply directly from the AC adapter without the battery. Turn on your laptop, then if its working normally as it should be,

Then try now to install back the battery then connect the AC adapter, turn it on. If still does not work, perhaps you have a problem with the battery.

If you need further assistance, let me know.

    hi again!



    That is not a good sign. Perhaps the power supply inside your laptop is not responding properly. I suggest that you bring your laptop to a serviee technician to check further the error. I don't want to advise you to buy right away a new battery or new AC adapter. It is better to have it check further.



    Regards

Does the blue light come on at the side where you plug your ac adaptor in? If it does, and your laptop still wont turn on, its likely you have a motherboard failure. Also try this without the battery inside. If the light is not coming on the charger port at the side, then its most definitely your ac adaptor at fault.

I have a HP dv7 laptop it does not work with the ac adapter but worked with the battery, whenever it is working with the battery and the ac adapter is connected it shuts down.


Remove the battery and plug the ac adaptor in check wethere the light on the port where you connect the ac adaptor glows or not, if no then check the wethere the ac adaptor is getting warm or not after you plug it in for few minutes if not then ac adaptor has to be replaced.
If the light on the port is glowing then it is likely that the power supply of the notebook has gone bad as it is not able to switch to ac adaptor or the port where you connect the ac adaptor to the notebook has a short circut when the acadaptor pin is connected , better try with a different ac adaptor to be sure wethere the issue is with ac adaptor or the notebook.
My best wishes

If the Computer turns ON and the CD/DVD drive gets power then first, remove the disc from the drive. Then, turn off the Computer, disconnect the AC Adaptor, remove the Battery pack and clean the metal contacts on the Battery and in the Battery compartment.
Next, press and hold the power button on the Computer for 30 seconds.
Then, reinsert the Battery pack in the Computer then connect the AC Adaptor and turn the Computer ON.
This will resolve the issue.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HP zd8000 will not boot on battery


If every thing is correct ( the Battery, the AC adapter, etc ) then also the Power light is not turning on, then somewhere the power is not transmitting. The laptop must have a internal connection Breakage. Oh, I saw that you didn't mention AC Adapter. Have you checked it. Also check the the Control Board of the Laptop. Better you give it a Servicing.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Remove the battery and ac adaptor. also remove any peripherals.

Then press power button and hold that for 20 seconds to statically discharge the notebook. Then plugge that into the mains (without battery) and try to turn on. IF Notebook will not boot. Call service as mainbord needs to be replaced.

AC Power adaptor wont work without usb printer connected


Hey alberto,
First off thanks for choosing Fixya.com. The Ac adapter itself could be bad or it could be the dc jack. And also the problem with your cpu fan could also be that the fan has gone out or the motherboard itself needs to be replaced.

If no power check;

  1. If on battery take out battery and plug in ac adapter to a known good outlet.
  2. Make sure power connections are snug
  3. Make sure ac adapter connections are good.
  4. If ac adapter on power strip, turn off and on power strip
  5. Try again.
If theres no display try the following;
  1. Reboot and keep tapping on F8 to go to Safe Mode.
  2. In Safe Mode select "last known good configuration" and then press Enter
Still no display;
  1. Connect an external monitor, toogle to external monitor
Let me know if any these solutions work if not we can try something else
