Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I had the same problem, then I replaced the DC jack and it worked for a few days. It turns out that these HP models have a very high failure rate of the motherboard something to the like of 85%, and it sounds very much like what has happened to yours.
However, the root cause of that problem is the motherboard capacitors. There is a chance that being able to replace just those components *may* solve the problem and it won't cost much to find out.
The capacitors in question are the black square shaped ones that are protecting vital components on the motherboard...when they fail then there's no protection. They are soldered onto the board directly beneath where the end of the copper tubing extends to in the cooling fan heat-sink just beyond the CPU. There will be about three of them mounted next each other, one or all them may have the appearance of starting to melt. De-soldering these could possibly solve the motherboard problem and it wouldn't cost much to find out. But if you sent it away to have it professionally repaired, they will likely just want to replace the entire motherboard and it would cost about as much to do that as it would to just buy a new computer.
