    HP has the power card in and has been saying not charging and is stuck on 55%.


  • skulls77 Jun 11, 2008

    I had bought a second battery for my HP dv6000 after it had got to 0% not charging and a new battery did the same thing in a couple months.



    Yesterday, I noticed I had got up to 1% not charging and found that it was shutting down PC with AC cord in and battery in, take out battery, put it back in. Did it 2 times and second time charge light came on steady and it charged. Seems like when powered down, the charger has a chance of working when putting a battery back in with the power connected as it takes a number of seconds to react with the charger light. Taking battery in and out when powered on doesn't seem to help.


    Wonder if it letting it get down to 0% that causes the trouble? Also as a precaution, I remove the baterry after I power it down.



    But I see some of you have gotten stuck at other power levels, so trying powering it down with AC adapater and battery in, remove battery and then put in back in, see if charge light will come on steady.


    The Hp battery check is junk always recommending to "calibrate" the battery. Also tried re-installing ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery, no change.


    3 Cheers for trial and error! HP laptops have problems with their charger systems!

    My battery is at 0% available (plugged in, not charging). This is probably the third time it's happened since I bought my laptop at least a year ago. I had a year warranty to replace the battery / charger. But I think my time is up. I'm not sure why this happens, but it has fixed itself twice before, so I'm hoping it will fix itself again.

I had a similar problem for over a week .... I wanted to smash my computer but I searched and searched and nothing that solved my problem, but I saw something about a bug where putting your computer on hibernation can cause a bug that makes the computer to not be able to recognize batteries, then I remember that before my problem came I put my laptop on Hibernation ...


So what I did to fix this problem was:

1 Unplug your battery
2 Start your computer with only AC power
3 Put your computer on Hibernation
4 Wait until is on Hibernation and Close the lid
5 Put the battery on
6 If the charging led is not blinking after a minute then is working, just turn on your computer to get out Hibernation
7 ???
8 Profit

Sorry for the bad English
Hope this might help for some people

Please bump this if it worked for you

I threw out a battery because it wouldnt charge, but the same problem occurred after a couple months with a new battery.

Basically, power down the laptop and then remove the AC adapter plug. Remove the battery, perhaps wait a minute. Then put the battery back in and then plug in the AC adaptor plug. You then should see the charger light come on showing the battery is charging. Perhaps wait a few minutes before powering on the laptop to confirm that the battery is indeed charging. The problem seems to be in the logic (not sure where, if it is the software driver, etc.) when the laptop is on, it doesn't get a charge. But with the laptop off, plugging in a battery after it has been removed - it works with a simpler charger system that doesn't use the computers's main CPU.

Also second , it is clear with my 6000, that the battery can discharge all the way after some time when powered down even though it had say 50% or more! This is well beyond the normal battery idle loss over time and I suspect the laptop has turned on in some way to drain the battery. So I always remove the battery after I have powered down the laptop, and I have not had any battery problems since then!

Finally, I agree with one posting I saw. The Pavillon HP laptops battery problems are truly the pits and may be enough for people to stop buying HP laptops! Where has all the engineering gone at HP?!

    Are you sure everyone is:



    1) Powering down the laptop.

    2) Remove battery and power adaptor

    3) Wait a few minutes.

    4) Plug power back in and then plug back in battery.

    5) See if charger light (blue light in front) comes back on.



    If not re-try this.



    When charger light comes on, then power up laptop and check for charging.



    This had to be done for me with laptop powered off.



    Also, if you get it fixed and battery charged, remove battery after powered down

    as it seems to discharge after not using, more than it should for being idle!

Two possible problems for this -

DC JACK Issue
1: one side of the DC ground is not conntected to the rest of the system, so no circuit is complete to the charging section.

CHARGING Circuit issue
2: bad power controller chip (MAXIM IC) or zener diode in that circuit, maybe bad

Any one with a HP Pavillion 6000 series, who is having certain tech difficulties should go to HP page and search for extended service warranties to see if your system qualifies. I had an issue with my wireless driver and all I had do was to first turn your system completly OFF, then remove the battery, then remove the middle cover (underneath Lap Top) and then remove the wireless card. (You will see it connected to two small cables) remove the cables and the small screws and remove the card and then reinserted the card and close the cover -do remember where the two cables go- . Then turn on your system, -do not put the battery yet- and go to control panel/ device manager/ look for network adaptor, and see if you see your lan card, once this is done reconnect your battery. If you don't then contact HP they will fix it for free, even if your warranty expire. They will even pick up your postage!.

    Mine did that to. but if you do that all the time when the wireless does not come up sooner or later you are going to wear the card, connectors, or cables out. Here is a simpler solution. It is called a soft reset. Turn computer off. Unplug the ac adapter, take out the battery, and hold the power button for about 5 sec. This will reset it. YOu will retain all your settings. so do not worry about that.

Why can't the battery be charged?

  1. The battery has no voltage.
  2. The charger has no output electric current.
  3. Low charging efficiency due to external cause
Solutions to the problem:
  1. Test whether the charger has voltage and output electric current or not.
  2. Check if the charger is well contacted with battery.
  3. Activate the battery with voltage and current 1.5 times higher than those of the battery. (Use this method only when the battery can't be charged.)

I had the 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.

    How long have you got your HP PAVILLION DV6000 Battery? as i know , most laptop batteries can be normal used in 400-500 charge and discharge cycles, in another word, a laptop battery should be normal in 2 year. my suggestion is that you should 100% discharge the battery power and overcharge it for 4-5 hours, to eliminate the memery effect, if it can not recover, you'd better to get a new one

    When your laptop doesn't work, you need to troubleshoot the AC power supply, system board and the battery are functioning correctly. The battery is an important part. It supplys power to the input-side of the voltage regulators, just like the power from the AC adapter.
    How to solve the batery can't be charged?

    Possible Reasons:
    a.The battery has no voltage.
    b.There is problem with charger, as it has no output electric current.
    c.Low charging efficiency due to external cause.
    Best Solutions:
    a.Test whether the charger has voltage and output electric current or not.
    b.Check if the charger is well contacted with battery.
    c.Activate the battery with voltage and current 1.5 time higher then the highest ones of battery. (Use this method only when the battery can't be charged.)

      So how to fix latop overheating problem and prevent notebook overheating?
      Here are simple solutions for you.
      1. If you have an overheating laptop and your computer is still under warranty, you should promptly report the problem to the manufacturer and seek their help. And you should also read the information on laptop overheating on this and related sites so you can better understand the causes, the consequences and the possible cures for notebook computer overheating.

      2. If a laptop is starting to overheat all of a sudden check the CPU fan, you should be able to hear it running, also check the thermal paste which helps transfer heat from the processor to the heatsink as it can lose efficiency and will need to be replaced.

      3. Applying the power saving functions of a laptop will make a it run much cooler, plus increase its battery life.

    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.

    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.

    The BIOS update sorta fixed the issue for me, which was annoying, the battery now charges but doesnt always report the charge correctly in MCE 2005 so I had to set it to shut down while it had a little more juice in it.

    Word of warning, avoid sending it to HP if you can, as once serviced the warranty resets in 90 days...basically HP is trying to patch its bad hardware which is prone to overheating with a BIOS fix to make the fans run constantly at a low level... instead of turning on and running noisey when the CPU is real hot.

    Ultimately the hardware is faulty, and most of these machines will probably have total failure in 2 years... if your running Vista and not MCE 2005 the failure rate will be higher as Vista is more graphics intensive.

    We ran a typical laptop battery of tests,such as HP Pavilion DV2000 battery HP Pavilion DV6000 battery HP 510 battery HP 530 battery, including games, applications, and a couple other areas. Time constraints limited the amount of testing we could get done before the NDA lift (and it's already a few hours late), but we will be providing a follow-up article with further testing and information. That said, if there are any specific areas that you'd like to see tested, feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.

    Well...I have had the same problem with my DV6109. When the battery completely discharges due to lack of use and charging, it gets stuck at 0% and the red X appears across the battery.

    I 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 battery. Power it back up and enter Windows. Then, re-insert the battery.

    Works for me!

    Rlee97 has the solution.

    My pc didn't show the battery charging in the task tray. The blue light was lite by the adapter plug but the battery icon didn't show a plug next to it in the task tray. So I thought the battery was bad. I bought a new battery but when I recieved the new battery the old battery showed it was charging in the task tray. Then a week later both batteries didn't show charging. I checked the ac adapter and it was outputing 18.67 volts so I knew the adapter was working. Now I thought the ac circuit board was damaged. I found this thread and used "rlee97 " advice, powered off the pc and removed the battery and discounted the a'c plug, waited a few minutes and pressed the on/off button for 10 seconds, put back the battery, plugged in the ac plug, powered up my pc. The battery icon didn't show the ac plug next to the battery immediately but after a few seconds in showed up and it started to recharge the battery. It recharged my new battery. After ityt was charged , I power off, changed it to the old battery, power up and it show it charging my old battery. It must be the pc program not working properly and not the battery or the ac adapter. I read HP has a problem with the software. What a waste of $ in buying a new battery.

    The first thing to replace is the battery. IF that doesn't resolve the issue, your logic board is defective. There are two ways to fix it. You can reflow the logic board (repairs the solder connections) or replace the logic board. You can do it yourself or have a third party laptop repair service do it for you. You can try to replace the part yourself, it is available on any auction website. There is a Laptop repair guide that teaches you how to install the part yourself.

    I had the same problem. Tried a new battery, charger, bios update, etc, etc.... Finally tried an Antec brand charger with an adjustable voltage output. Plugged it in, moved the slider till the "charge" light came on. Been working great for about 6 months.

    As i know, after 2 years of being plugged in constantly, the battery could be near end of life. Better to unplug the computer and let the battery run down every couple of weeks. Or better yet, remove the battery if computer is plugged in for extended periods.

    Take the battery and send it to HP simple.... They will test it and send you a refurbished or new on back if it's bad. Very simple. Then if you want ask the tech guy if you should flash your BIOS.... If thats something that sounds major to you, then you might just have to send them the laptop for a few days for them to do it... Or call your local computer tech to flash the bios. It's very simple. so A) send them the battery, B) Flash the bios. Stop reading all these posts to have you buy a new battery...

    I think your battery need to be actived, you can try to active it, discharge it until it's off, then charge it full.
    Most batteries are easy to sleep if you don't use it for a long time.
    If the way can not work, you have to purchase a new HP pavilion dv6000 battery. Well, the replacement battery is very important to make sure.

    Hp Pavillion dv6000 will not turn when hit theon off button nothing happens


    A lot of times these laptops are in a sleep mode (after a certain period of time which is decided by the windows or the user, the computers turn of the screen). I would start by pressing on the power button for a long time (about 1-2 minutes), then try all the basic stuff:
    1. check the laptop's cable, if it looks okay or not, maybe there's a problem charging the battery.
    2. try replacing the cable and the battery.
    3. try removing the battery for about 24 hours.

    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! ^_^

    HP PAVILLION DV6000 REPORTS BATTERY NOT CHARGING


    If you charged up your battery up for 2hrs but didnt increase the percentage or didn't charge up at all it means that your battery is faulty. I have also a same case with you.

    Send it to the service center near you and ask them to rplace your battery. Replacement is free if machine is under warrant.y
