HP Pavillion dv6500 won't charge

My computer charger broke and I just bought a universal charger at Best Buy today (Rocketfish AC Power Adapter). I tried every tip, and the only one that (M5) simply keeps the computer on, but refuses to charge the battery at all. I jury-rigged the old charger in hopes that putting a little bit of charge in the battery would help jumpstart the new charger. I let it charge to about 40%. No joy. Is this charger just not compatible with my notebook or can I make it work somehow?

Compare voltage and current (amps) from the original to the new. If the new one is different (voltage is lower, or current substantially lower), then it might not be an adequate replacement. If these are near identical, and you have the correct sized tip, there shouldn't be a problem with the new unit. Obviously, you could get an exact replacement supply $$. Also check online for replacements.

Is there a substitute AC adapter charger I can use for my V-Net 760 notebook


Ebay has tons of them. Log into ebay and type in AC charger for V-Net 760 notebook and several options should appear. I have bought several for my laptop computers through ebay. BestBuy also sells a generic charger made by Rocketfish that will come with a plethora of adapter ends to match your computer.

I have a dv6500 and it work only whit te battery. the ac adapter dont charg the battery and the pc dont work and the charger its ok. maybe a fuse?? tks rgds


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

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.

Computer not charging with universal adapter


hi i had the problem before , you have to buy dell charger in order to charge your battery, universal charger doesnot work with this, the only way not to lose your power is to keep the charger connected, in this way the battery will not be charged but u will not lose the power. again you need dell charger the universal only gives power but doesnot charge.
Best Regards

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.
