HP Pavilion zv6000 notebook won't power up

I thought it was the battery, but even after installing a new battery the LED indicator (sort of a broken circle with a line at 12:00) flashes and it won't power up? Any help greatly appreciated

    I have a zv6ooo HP laptop. It runs beautifully. However, I am about to go on a road trip and want to continue doing some offline work. I have never had the battery in the computer. To charge it, do I simply put the battery in and plug it into the AC outlet. Dumb, I know! I've never been where I needed to use the battery.

    My battery indicator says full, the battery is in and the light goes from amber to green but when I unplug the AC power the laptop turns off.

    I had the keyboard replaced because of sticky keys, and sine then it does not work on battery, is there a setting to turn the battery on?

    the ZV 6000 would not power up at all, so I bought a new battery, and followed instructions to allow it to discharge and recharge. The discharge worked, but nothing since, and yes, the adapter/charger is plugged in. The blue flash sign will flash once, sometimes twice, when I press the power on key.

    HP Pavillion dv6000 won't turn on. I press the power button, the lights come on for 2 seconds, and they they're back off again. I've tried taking out the Memory Module and then replacing it and that didn't work. I also tried taking out the battery for 5 minutes then trying to turn it back on but it still won't work. Please help!

    I put in a 12cell because the old wouldn't hold a charge, now it won't power up unless plugged in but after starting then I can disconnect the power cord for hours.

  • Carl Otto Apr 24, 2009

    I replaced the 6 cell with a 12 but now it will only power up when plugged in. Then I can disconnect for hours.

I bought an HP Pavillion zv6000 on Ebay and the keyboard is not working. It is a used laptop. HOPEFULLY SOMEONE CAN HELP ME


PN494AV is the part number -- please verify this on the baclk of your notebook

if so, the keyboard (US English) p/n 383664-001 . This is for HP Pavilion zv6000 (PN494AV) CTO FF Notebook . call LAPTOP PARTS, phone [949]-878-9501, USA they have it for about $20-$30

i would suggest getting this notebook to a qualified technician. Otherwise, if you think you are bale to replace it (it's fairly simple), save some money and DIY (do it yourself) .

here are the instructions HOW TO Remove the keyboard
first shut down system, unplu power cord, remove the battery from compartment

In the battery compartment you'll find three screws securing the HP Pavilion zv6000 keyboard to the laptop base. Remove these three screws.

Carefully lift up the top side of the keyboard as it shown on the picture below. There are small plastic latches securing the keyboard on both side but they should't be a problem. Do not lift up the keyboard too much, it's still connected to the motherboard.

Set the keyboard so you can access the cable connector underneath. You'll have to unlock the connector before you can release the cable and remove the keyboard.

Carefully lift up the keyboard. Disconnect the keyboard from the motherboard . remove old keyboard and replace with the one you bought.
WARNING! Be very careful with the connector. Lift the tab, as it releases the connection. You cannot replace the connector if you accidentally break it. The connector is permanently attached to the motherboard. If it's broken, the whole motherboard has to be replaced.

here is a video for a DV6000 series, same concept -- to give you the idea on how it's done

please rate me 4 thumbs up

My HP dv7 laptop wont turn on I purchased a new battery and a new cord it worked for an hour then shut off again!!!!!!!!!!

Your DC connector is loose from the system board:

Problem symptoms:

  1. Laptop randomly shuts down without any warning.
  2. Power LED and battery charge LED start flickering when you wiggle the power cord or the AC adapter tip on the back or your laptop.
  3. The battery will not get charged.
  4. When you plug AC adapter, the laptop appears to be dead and there is no LED activity at all (DC-IN jack on the system board is broken).

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by resoldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it's still under warranty, it would be fixed at no charge to you.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

MY notebook cannot power on

It could be a faulty battery, try removing the battery and use the mains lead on its own.

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.
