HP Pavillion power link blinks

Hi,

I have an HP pavillion DV1000 laptop, and it seems like there is some problem with the power supply.

Every time i plug in the power supply, the laptop screen and the ac adapter light indicator starts blinking (on for 1 sec, off for next). Screen has a different brightness setting for connected vs not connected to power, and i am pretty sure that's why the screen is toggling between the 2 power setting. It looks like there is something wrong with the power supply as if some connection is loose, it keeps toggling between connected and non-connected.

The laptop does boot up and i can work on it, but its really annoying, and ofcourse it takes a long while to charge it up, (as the AC adapter keeps toggling between charging and not charging).

I have tried using 2-3 different power supplies (the big brick and the cord), but the same issue.

The adapter connection doesn't look to be loose, so i am not sure what the problem is. Any pointers/help would be really appreciated.

Thanks

    Really?

    Even if I leave the laptop alone on a table (and even all night), the LED for power supply consistently keeps coming on and off, almost at a predetermined frequency.

I have a DV1130us and I'm having the same problem. I've already replaced 2 blown SMD capacitor on the motherboard, originally would only short out and obviously not boot or charge.

But I think it may be the MAX1907a chip, basically the actual power supply controller for the laptop, though it may also just be another bad cap somewhere. If/when I get mine working I will post what I did to get it to charge.

I can almost guarantee you this is an issue with the power jack on the laptop's motherboard. Even though it may not appear to be loose, its most likely the solder connection on the motherboard has broken, only allowing intermittent connection when the laptop is in /just/ the right position.

It'd be best to get this looked at sooner rather than later, preferrably if the computer is still under warranty. The connection will steadily decline, until the laptop is unusable.

Otherwise, let me know if you want to get rid of the system! I have a system, almost exactly the same model, that I need parts for!

Hope this helps!

    Is that the LED on the power cable itsself? If that's the case, I would point to a bad power supply, or a bad outlet...

My hp pavillion dv1000 laptop fan doesnt work..


Hi,

Have to try to update the BIOS on your machine? usually that's what HP support do, you can download the BIOS driver to HP website. If happens that you already updated the BIOS and still the fan is not working, it means that the Hardware is faulty.

Hp pavillion wont start at all under battery power or under ac power..


Hi,

I think its the Motherboard problem because if there is no power at all that means the hardware is already faulty. I recommend try to call the manufacturer or go to any computer local centers.

I bought a new ac charger for my hp pavillion dv1000 it will not power on


Check and make sure the Voltage on the AC adapter is the exact same as your previous one. Just because the connector fits in the port, doesn't mean it's the right one. Look in your manual to figure out if your AC adapter voltage is correct. If it is, it's possible that you have a dead battery, it happens when surges happen during power outages. If it's so, look on the HP website for a new replacement battery. It should allow you to type in your pavillion model number.

HP pavillion dv1000 won't charge


Try using your laptop without the battery and just using your power supply (new universal or your old one).
If your laptop works on just mains power it means your battery is causing the problem, which is not unusual.
