Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

2 Answers

My HP Pavillion dv6000 shuts down with battery in, runs on power no problem for quite sometime; w/batter it shuts down. Is it the battery? I called HP and they said I would have to bring it in for evaluation, it could be the battery or the motherboard!!! It works fine on power only it seems, it is now 1 year and 7 months old. I use my laptop mainly for email and Office Works, and not much at that as I do translation work. I am leary of taking and leaving the laptop when the problem may be the battery alone, shouldn't any professional tech be able to test battery w/o paying through the nose to the HP department for eval and then labor, time driving over etc. I am at a loss, please advise.

When battery is in if laptop shows charging (charging light blinking on laptop) then battery is faulty.
but charging not shows properly then motherboard is faulty.

Hi,
In most cases its the battery cells which have degraded and won't hold a charge, in some cases its the power board on the motherboard which has gone.
To determine which it is you will have to take the laptop to a PC repair shop for a technician to test, it will be a lot cheaper than sending it in for HP to look at and you can stand there while its tested.
If they have a compatible battery in store they will test that battery in your laptop to see if the battery charges, if it charges then its the battery, if it does not, then its the motherboard and that will be an expensive fix.


Good luck.

Hi, believe it or not?; sometimes the current in certain areas of the home or apartment have separate power circuits from the main direct current system. Check to make sure there is electrical current running through your socket, and or light switch to open the circuit. Thanks, paul7of9

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! ^_^

Laptop turns off when charger is plugged in !!


Charger is bad and is not putting out the correct voltage which causes the computer to shut down. Battery probably isn't much good either if it only lasts for one hour. Get new batter and charger. Ebay'ers will help you find one cheap.
