Question about HP Pavillion ZV6000 Notebook
This can be caused by a few problems, but I think yours is caused by a faulty power jack on laptop or your power adapter is no good.
Power Adapter: Plug it into the wall and notice if the light on adapter lights up or not. If it does light up, test it with a multimeter for proper voltage output. The output is labeled on the adapter sticker, an example would be "19 volts". If the adapter checks out okay then you need to look at where the adapter plugs into the laptop (power jack). If the power adapter did not check out okay, replace it.
Power jacks are known to come loose from the motherboard by the power cord being moved around from normal daily use. What happens is the jack breaks the solder joint and loses the connection. You most of the time see this problem getting worse by having to move your power cord around to get your charging light to come on.
If the computer is under warranty still, this is an issue you would turn it in for work. If it is not under warranty you are either going to need a replacement motherboard or replace/re-solder the jack (cheaper). If you are familiar with soldering circuit boards you can fix this yourself, if you are not experienced, you will have to take it into a electronics repair shop.
The jack and solder are very cheap, it is the labor that will cost you.
Hope this helps give you some direction as to where to look. Good luck.

Two things that could be the cause
1. the distrubution unit inside the power adaptor is indeed bad
2. you have a bad connection or loose connection on the latops power input connector on the man logic board or mother board.
Ether way its going to need to be looked at first thing to try is get a new AC power brick for it if that does not work your looking deeper as a logic board power input connector is shorted or loose
