Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
If the local screen is pink, but the external is not.
then the local screen is bad.
as most are this old. (i just changed one out)
but no photos posted of your internal screen failing OP?
so answers will be wrong. lacking that key fact.
on all DV with those funky CCFL tubes turn yellow. all do.
but that is on white screens, lamps bad. (the ***** rattle)
but on other screens sure pinkish possible !
so run notepad, is that pink? well if yes, its not the silly back ground images of the desktop or any screen savers.
all CCFL go bad, and fast.
NO OS stated so>>>>?XP?

It seems that the problem lies in a type of cable called a ZIF connector. There are two of these cables attached to two different boards on the laptop. The first is attached to the power board, and the second is attached to a board that controls the LED touch keys. The ZIF is essentially a small ribbon cable. The problem arises when the cable weakens and breaks due to repeated flexing (pressing of the power button). What ended up happening to my laptop was quite simple actually. My friend and I replaced the broken ZIF cable with other ZIF from the LED touch pad, since I don't use them that much. And voila the problem was solved, both speakers work now and so does the power button. This will do for me right now until I find out where to get a new ZIF cable.
To open up your laptop:
Un-plug the laptop and remove the battery
Flip the laptop over so the area where of the battery compartment is facing up.
Remove the three Phillips PM2.5X5.0 screws at the back of the of the battery compartment to remove the switch cover.
Flip the laptop over again and open the laptop as far as it will go. Remove the switch cover by pulling up from the back of the cover.(The switch cover is the piece with the speaker mesh)
Unplug the first ZIF connector to which the LED board is connected.
Remove the four Phillips PM2.5X7.0 screws which connect the keyboard to the laptop.
Remove the keyboard and rest it over the mouse pad.
Then remove the small circuit board from the switch cover.
Remove the ZIF cable from the power board and replace it. either you can find a new ZIF cable or you can swap it for the other one. Be advised that if you swap the cables you will lose the the ability to use the touch keys.
To put everything back together just follow the steps in reverse order.
It is kind of to explain and to take apart a laptop without pictures. But I will just give you the information and you can decide if you want to take the risk.
Best of luck I hope it works,

You don´t have to replace it. Just cut about 1,5 - 2 cm off the end (that´s where mine was broken) and scrape the tracks free with a knife. Then but a small batch of tape behind the end so it will be held in the socket. That´s it, a 10 min fix.
