Question about HP Compaq Presario V6000T Notebook

HP Pavilion zv5000: Screen blan, power light, fans are on.


I have HP pavilion zv5000 laptop.

Since few months back, power supply jack was giving problem, so I opened it (hoping to easily attach two wire, re-solder power supply jack on motherboard).

I opened-up laptop cover which is at the bottom of laptop.
Also removed harddrive and battery.

I finally gave up power jack fixing, since solder connection is not easily accessible (at least from the side which I opened laptop. and I was not too confident that I should further open other parts. So I decided to put it back and take it to a shop/repair center.

(BTW, When I hold/tag on power cord, laptop seems to get power, and the power jack seemed to be loose on the motherboard, so I confirmed that it was power jack-to-motherboard connection problem)

In this process, un-knowingly, I opened four screws that fix CPU-Heatsink to motherboard, and detached CPU from motherboard. Only when I turned it upside down, and looked at CPU, I realised that I had detached CPU from motherboard !

Anyways, carefully I put CPU, Batter, Harddrive together, and turned on laptop (by holding/wiggling power cord by hand to a point where power light comes on).

BUT, now the screen is BLANK !

(it used to try to boot up before I opened up).
Both fans seems to turn on, and the harddrive light flashes normally.

I need all the help in resolving this issue.

Thanks in advance for looking into this !

Lala linda is right. . . repairing the power pin isn't that expensive ... In fact I've fixed some myself and it's really not that hard. It is time consuming and tedious to make sure that all the bits and pieces fo back in the right place. Take some pix as you take it apart and you will find that's it much easier when you go to re-assemble the unit. btw . . . The power pins are available on the net for $ 10 or less usually.

Also . . .Once you get it fixed get a Cable retention device to make sure you don't damage the pin a second time. Personally I recommend (and use) this one.

How do i get my hp pavilion zv5000 to run on ac power only. it will only run on the battery.

Zv5000 Laptops are plagued with problems related to the jack on the back of the computer. After prolonged use the jack tends to make the solder joint loose. Jacks can also go bad. The solution would be to check if the power comes on momentarily when wiggling the plug in the jack, if the power comes on intermittently then chances are you have a loose solder joint and may need repaired by a qualified tech. Fortunately, for the technically savvy this may be done carefully provided the proper static sensitive precautions are taken, due to the fact the computer must be totally dismantled to get to the jack and properly inspect the solder connections and repair or replace the jack. Silver heat sink compound must also replace the silicone on the processor ( one dab and compress, do not spread compound!) The jack need should it be replaced can be found on Ebay

Hp pavilion ZV5000 was working fing, now it does not start, no lights, with A/C adaptor or battery, wonder if this is a common issue that others have seen.

Yes it is. You either have a bad AC adaptor or a bad internal power supply. My guess, the power supply.
About a $300 fix when sent back to HP. I fixed mine once. Next time its a new computer.

HP Pavilion zv5000 won't boot

You probably have to have a techie install a new d/c jack onto the motherboard. Not real expensive, only about $60us in my market.

HP Pavilion Laptop zv5000 wont power on. NOT power cord problem.

I think your motherboard has gone bad, even though you hear a fan working, its just on a hot wire on the motherboard.
