Your Pavilion DV6000 laptop is the key to your productivity, which is why it is essential that it turns on when you need it. The DV6000 is lighter than comparable models from other brands, and has a large, sharp display. While it has plenty of processing power, the DV6000 can have normal boot problems as well as problems caused by faulty battery packs that were installed in some units. Attempt to troubleshoot the laptop and find out if the laptop is eligible for a new battery pack.
1.Hard reset your laptop if there is no life at all. Unplug all peripheral devices and remove the battery. Unplug the AC cable and press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to drain all power. Reconnect the AC cable and hit the power button. 2.Verify that the battery pack is on the recall list if the laptop powers up without it. Fill out the form on the battery pack recall website (http://bpr.hpordercenter.com/hbpr/). You will have to input the serial number of the battery pack as well as a location to ship the replacement battery if you are eligible. 3.Hold the AC cable where it plugs into the laptop and wiggle it while hitting the power button one time. LEDs that come on and off intermittently indicate a faulty power cable. Order a replacement power cable through HP or a third-party vendor. 4.Write down any visual or audio error codes such as LEDs blinking or unusual beeping. The error sequence will be helpful when talking to an HP support person.
just remove the battery and disconnect the AC adapter.. then press and hold power button for 30 secs... Then power the sys with the battery.. this might fix the issue.. Its recommended to go for a new battery if the Laptop has aged more than a year after purchase...
If I remember correctly, DV6000 series laptops have a modular power connector, meaning that if you pull the laptop apart you can just simply replace the power port as opposed to having to solder it on. Typically this part can be bought on ebay for about $20-30.
Even if there was a way to get your laptop to power through the battery port, that would be dangerous and probably just blow out your motherboard completely.
Solution for HP Pavilion DV6000 Battery Not Charge
Reinstalling the power management software has just fixed it for me. Go to device manager and under batteries, unistall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery. Go to Actions on the menu bar and select ’scan for hardware changes’. It will reinstall it and hopefully start charging immediately (mine did anyway).
If your HP Pavillion dv6000 has a battery that won’t charge yet still turns on when plugged in, turn off the laptop and remove the battery then wait for around 30 seconds, re-insert it and turn it back on, the charging update should say, plugged in, charging.
Just got it to charge again.While the laptop is powered and in Windows XP, press and hold the POWER button until it dies. Then, remove the dv6000 laptop battery. Power it back up and enter Windows. Then, re-insert the battery.
So I always remove the Hp dv6000 battery after I have powered down the laptop, and I have not had any battery problems since then!
I had the same issue my fix was a new cmos battery that was only $10.00 and install updated bios software from HP
I had the dv6000 battery problem where it showed my battery NOT CHARGING. I took it apart because my QUICKPLAY would not work either and the QUICKPLAY lights stayed on even after I shut down the laptop. I found that the black ribbon cable on the right (the other looks the same but you can see it is for the power button) was slightly kiltered in the flat socket it goes to underneath the area where the quickplay button is. I straightened it out and made sure it was pushed all the way in and locked and put it all back together and everything worked perfectly after that. About a month before that my POWER and SOUND didn`t work. I did the same thing to fix those problems. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THOSE CABLES EXACTLY RIGHT in there, IT MAY JUST BE YOUR PROBLEM TOO.
Some people dont realise that you should avoid short charges and discharges, if your batery does not go above 40% mabe its charge memory thinks its full. to fix this problem let the batery run fully down, then charge it all the way again. try it a few times if it doesnt work. and you have to go all the way, not let windows go into hibernation. to do that you need to get the batery low, then boot to some boot disk and let it sit till the batery dies.
HP has posted BIOS updates to address battery problems as well as the auto startup on some.If you will post the full model number,someone can help you find your driver/updates page.
Not sure if this is whats up with your laptop but there is a recall on the dv6000. The following link has more details on whether your laptop is one of those affected. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&docname=c01087277&product=1842155
I had a similar problem for over a week .... I wanted to smash my computer but I searched and searched and nothing that solved my problem, but I saw something about a bug where putting your computer on hibernation can cause a bug that makes the computer to not be able to recognize batteries, then I remember that before my problem came I put my laptop on Hibernation ...
So what I did to fix this problem was:
1 Unplug your battery 2 Start your computer with only AC power 3 Put your computer on Hibernation 4 Wait until is on Hibernation and Close the lid 5 Put the battery on 6 If the charging led is not blinking after a minute then is working, just turn on your computer to get out Hibernation 7 ??? 8 Profit
Sorry for the bad English Hope this might help for some people
