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

OR

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

My laptop HP Pavillion ZV6000, battery started decreasing and wouldn't charge when the ac adapter was connected. I purchased another ac adapter thinking that was my problem. It didn't work. Now I have...


As others have said, the most common fault with the ZV series is the power socket. However, you mentioned the Lightning Bolt. This indicates that the battery is being charged and it should go out as soon as the battery is fully charged.

If the Lightning Bolt flashes on and off regularly, especially when the power cable is moved, then the socket is at fault and needs replacing.

You can check to see if the battery is receiving a charge by doing the following

1. Right Click the Desktop
2. Click Properties
3. Click the Screen Saver tab
4. Click the Power button
5. Click the Power Meter tab

This will tell you the computer's current power source and whether the battery is charging.

I have replaced several of these sockets on ZV5000s and I'm sure the 6000 will be similar. I would not recommend this job for anyone without technical knowledge, despite some of the websites that say you can do it yourself. You will need to strip the entire laptop down and all but remove the motherboard before the socket can be replaced.

Hope this helps

Hp 4365us will not power up at all-ac adapt ok--removed ans reseated batt/hd ????? Charging lite is on but can't start


Remove battery and power adapter.
Press power button a couple of times and then hold it down for about 6 seconds.

Then just plug in the ac adapter, keep battery removed, and try to turn on the laptop

Ac cord


And the problem is??
If nothing else, go to ebay. cheap prices, plenty to choose from.
If money doesn't matter and you're in a hurry, purchase a high quality "universal" power adapter, such as ICE. Make sure it carries 90 watts and can handle the appropriate amperage.
Good luck

HP PAVILION ZV 6000 SHUTS DOWN AFTER LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES


Is this on battery or power supply?
If on AC power supply, then it sounds like a heat related issue.
Make sure you can hear the cooling fan running and you may need to blowe the dust out of it with a can of compressed air.
