Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Charging cable gets hot, charge port too, not battery though

So, when I plug in my HP Pavilion dv1000 laptop, the power brick gets really hot, and so does the port where the cable plugs into the computer. The battery, however, still holds a charge and does not get hot. The fan is still running as it should, and I've had no shutdown problems. Could this be a capacitor problem, a sensor issue, or anything else I don't know of? Thank you.

No it is not a problem. The power dissapiation in the adaptor causes it to become hot.

My hp dv1000 power cord goes on and off from charging mode to battery, is the power port the problem?


Alot of laptops have the same problem. Power ports and the plugs get wiggled around and they eventually get loosened up. It is most likely the problem. Try holding it in a position that you know it's charging and the let go and see if its still charging or not.

My hp pavillion dv1000 wont turn on it is plugged in but the charging light doesnt show up and when i push the power button nothing happens


Problem with your charger, try this :

1. Check whether the charger plug is properly inserted in the Power port/jack of your Laptop!

2. Check the power cord (any cuts OR torn-out)!

3. If above steps don't work, replace your charger.

Battery is working fine but laptop is unable to charge the battery


If the battery is definatly not faulty, and the laptop won't charge it, then I would assume the charging circuit is faulty. As they are built in to the motherboard that would need replacing.

RE: HP laptop no power


Give this a try -

1. Unplug all usb devices.(Printers, MP3 players, webcams, etc etc)

2. Remove the battery and power cable.

3. Press and hold the power button for 30sec.

4. Plug in just the cable (no battery)

If this doesnt work then it most likely needs a repair.

Also check the USB & power port for damage or if the charger jack is loose when you plug it in.

My HP DV1000 will not start.


You have a power issue. The board is not charging the system or the battery. If you know someone with a similar model, ask them if you can borrow their battery and see if your system boots with it. If it does, you may need a new adapter or the power board in the notebook is out. When you remove the battery and try it, there's enough juice to power it up for the moment, but not sustain it.

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.

Battery life is very short


Not really. What happened is you shorted the life of the battery by always having it plugged in and in a charging state. The battery has a memory and since it's always been plugged in, it will never charge fully. There are products out there that will drain your battery down and reset the memory issue. But it would be cheaper to get another battery. If you are going to keep it plugged in the majority of the time, charge up the battery and remove it.

HP Pavillion power link blinks


aa505 -

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!
