PAvilion ZV5000 Screen Issues.

It is my third happy year with my laptop, however a strange illness has befallen its screen. Unlike the usual screen deaths, the screen gives out a pseudo-inverted color scheme. Red turns to black and white gives way to a wired shade of green. Occasionally pressure on the "D","F" and"V" buttons on the built in keyboard will fix the problem, yet sadly relief is only temporary.


My suspicion is on a loose contact or connector within the Laptop, not the screen. Can anyone provide a second opinion, or perhaps even a solution?

If all else fails, I will open the laptop up and pray for the best; HP is known for making sure that people stay out of their systems.

Does rebooting fix the issue? if so it could be a driver issue.

However I believe its probably a loose ribbon cable. It happens from time to time, the cable eventually loosens up. If your mechanically inclined you can open up the laptop and secure the cable. However if you have never opened up a laptop, theres a good chance you will break a piece of plastic as they are fragile and force must be used in the correct places.

Good luck!

HP Pavilion zd7000 lap top Power on issues


I just built/repaired one of these the other day. My son uses it now. Motherboards are notorious for going out. However you need to give more description to your problem. You just say it has issues but that doesnt really tell me anything. If you turn it on and get no beeps and no screen and everything seems dead except for the power light then it needs the system board replaced. But if you see the hard drive light running like normal with nothing on the screen then try it with an external monitor. If the external monitor works then the screen has died but the motherboard video card components are good. If you still got nothing then the board is bad and will need replaced.
I'm sorry it is almost always bad news on these.

I attempted to upgrade the RAM on my HP Pavilion zv5000. (the one under the keyboard) when I tried to turn it on, there is just a blank screen. Any idea what the problem is? The laptop was installed...


According to the link below you can do the upgrade. If is not working, make sure you have the memory seated correctly, then mix and match the memory and switch slots to find the problem memory. It may be incompatible with either the motherboard or the other memory sticks, or just a bad stick.

Hp Pavilion zd7000 turns on and off with different colored screen


The graphics chip needs resoldering (reflow). Got the same laptop in for repair yesterday. At first when power cord plugged in all LEDS stay, hard drive spins but fans don't work and nothing on screen. A bit later everything's dead. I've seen too many HPs with poor soldering issues. can't really say they're making good laptops these years.
