Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
The sound quit on the laptop (it's above the function keys, says Altec Lansing), but when external speakers or earphones are hooked up, the sound is there. HP's troubleshooting steps indicate that the appropriate systems are working fine--checked to make sure there is no mute box checked as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thx.
It seems as though the speakers wire connector may have become loose or disconnected. You will have to remove the switch cover above the Keyboard to check. Here is the typical instructions for removing it:
Before you begin any removal or installation procedures:
1. Shut down the computer. If you are unsure whether the computer is off or in hibernation, turn the computer on, and then shut it down through the operating system.
2. Disconnect all external devices connected to the computer.
3. Disconnect the power cord.
4. Remove the battery by following these steps:

the LED board cable is connected and disconnect the cable 2
from the LED board.
