Hp dv6000 laptop won't turn on!

Okay i got this laptop for my birthday in 2007. It was working fine up until a few months ago. Now it won't turn on. The blue lights turn on and i can hear the fan too, it tries to start and the screen is blank. A few seconds later it shuts off and then it turns on and the finally off. I thought it might be the battery so i got a new one....still the same problem. sometimes it does turn on and when i want to go back on it won't turn on. also it freezes when i do use it, i shut it down and i won't turn back on.

what's wrong with it? i've searched over the internet for information and it seems others have the same problems. what should i do?

Dv6000 won't power up


Remove main battery and try again, next! have the power supply adapter checked for output voltage, if okay! the DC jack in the laptop is a common source of trouble, at this point the laptop must be dismantled down to the motherboard level to address the situation.

Failure of Printer to Print Color


Try using a new HP ink cartridge. I had the same problem with a printer I purchased off of CraigsList even though the ink level was good. I installed a new color HP ink cartridge and it printed without a problem.

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

How do you fix DV6000 backlight not switching on?


It is unlikely an issue with the backlight. The HP Pavilion dv6000 line had an overheating issue which caused issues with the motherboard, often resulting in the video card and/or monitor not working.

HP offered an extended warranty on the affected models, but it ended a few months ago. Please see this page for more information:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&docname=c01087277&product=1842155

If Step 2 of this page aptly describes your problem, it can only be repaired by replacing the motherboard. Apologies.

My battery is at 0% and does not charge and whenever i take out the power chord my computer automatically turns off. Any help


here is a good resource I found:

Solution for HP Pavilion DV6000 Battery Not Charge
  • Reinstalling the power management software has just fixed it for me. Go to device manager and under batteries, unistall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery. Go to Actions on the menu bar and select ’scan for hardware changes’. It will reinstall it and hopefully start charging immediately (mine did anyway).
  • If your HP Pavillion dv6000 has a battery that won’t charge yet still turns on when plugged in, turn off the laptop and remove the battery then wait for around 30 seconds, re-insert it and turn it back on, the charging update should say, plugged in, charging.
  • I made the bios update, and works for me. My Dv6000 battery problems were fixed. The battery led always blinking every time and the battery didn’t charge. Now it’s ok !
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=3245619
  • If it is still under warranty you can chat with an online hp tech who will check it out over the internet and send you a replacement for free. the dv 6000 laptops have a recall on a few problems and there is a bios update to fix it before it happens but will not correct it after the fact the recall on specific problems extends the warranty to 24 months http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=3245619 should get you to the warranty page.
  • Just got it to charge again.While the laptop is powered and in Windows XP, press and hold the POWER button until it dies. Then, remove the dv6000 laptop battery. Power it back up and enter Windows. Then, re-insert the battery.
  • So I always remove the Hp dv6000 battery after I have powered down the laptop, and I have not had any battery problems since then!
  • I had the same issue my fix was a new cmos battery that was only $10.00 and install updated bios software from HP
  • I had the dv6000 battery problem where it showed my battery NOT CHARGING. I took it apart because my QUICKPLAY would not work either and the QUICKPLAY lights stayed on even after I shut down the laptop. I found that the black ribbon cable on the right (the other looks the same but you can see it is for the power button) was slightly kiltered in the flat socket it goes to underneath the area where the quickplay button is. I straightened it out and made sure it was pushed all the way in and locked and put it all back together and everything worked perfectly after that. About a month before that my POWER and SOUND didn`t work. I did the same thing to fix those problems. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THOSE CABLES EXACTLY RIGHT in there, IT MAY JUST BE YOUR PROBLEM TOO.
  • Some people dont realise that you should avoid short charges and discharges, if your batery does not go above 40% mabe its charge memory thinks its full. to fix this problem let the batery run fully down, then charge it all the way again. try it a few times if it doesnt work. and you have to go all the way, not let windows go into hibernation. to do that you need to get the batery low, then boot to some boot disk and let it sit till the batery dies.
  • HP has posted BIOS updates to address battery problems as well as the auto startup on some.If you will post the full model number,someone can help you find your driver/updates page.
Hope this helps, please rate! ^_^
