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 have the same problem although I am able to trace 18.46v from the power jack to the board. Oh I got one better, this is even after replacing the motherboard.

My Pavilion g6-1b79dx notebook will not charge even with a new battery and charger. The light indicating the charger is plugged in is blinking white

When you say it won't charge, does it charge at all?

1. It indicates that it is charging, but as soon as you unplug the charger the battery quickly or immediately indicates it is dead. If the laptop is off, the LED on the laptop shows it is charging but the battery is always dead,

2. It is as if you didn't have the charger plugged in. No light on the laptop at all when the charger is plugged in.

Possible solutions:

1. The battery has died and is no longer capable of taking a charge. An alternate explanation if you can't even get the laptop to turn on even though the laptop charge LED is on, is that the internal power supply that converts the incoming and battery voltage to all the voltages required has died.

2. The power connector inside the laptop is a common failure point. The solder joints break from various minor shocks over time. This is going to become more common with lead-free solder as it is more brittle. Less likely is that the charging circuit inside the laptop has failed.

Follow the steps below to determine whether the problem is related to the AC adapter or your notebook system board:
  1. Remove the battery and disconnect all external devices from the computer.
  2. Hold the Power button for several seconds, with all power sources removed. This drains residual power from the system, and may correct many problems.
  3. Connect the AC adapter to a wall outlet and plug the other end into the computer.
  4. Press the Power button .
  5. Is the Power indicator light (LED) on or off?
****If notebook power indicator light (LED) is on, the AC adapter is working correctly***
If the power indicator LED is off, the AC power adapter may need to be replaced. To determine if the AC power adapter needs to be replaced follow the steps below:
  1. Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged directly into a known working wall outlet.
    NOTE: To check the wall outlet, plug in a different known working device like a light, radio etc.
  2. Check all of the following connections:
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the wall outlet.
    • The connection into the power adapter from the wall outlet.
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the notebook.
  3. Press the power button again to test the notebook PC.
  4. If the power indicator does not turn on, remove the AC power adapter from the notebook PC and re-insert the battery. Then press the power button. If the power indicator light still does not turn on, then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced.
*****Reseating the RAM may resolve this issue.****
Step 1 - Remove the battery
  1. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
  2. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.
Step 2 - Remove the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Use your finger or a flat head screw driver to lift the inside edge of the memory module and remove it.
  4. Push both tabs outward simultaneously to release the memory module.
  5. Grasp the memory module by the edges and pull gently to remove it.
  6. After removing one module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
Step 3 - Replace the battery
  1. Insert the battery into the notebook.
  2. Push the battery into the base enclosure until you hear a click.
  3. Connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook.
fter the memory is reseated, connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook. If the notebook boots normally and the Windows desktop appears no further action is needed. If this problem re-occurs often, contact an HP Support Specialist to schedule a repair.

Laptop will not power up with Adapter

It sounds like there is a problem with your motherboard. You would have to take it someplace to run diagnostics on it. It may be time for a new laptop
