    Do you hear the hard drive spining and any noises from the speakers? If so you have a display problem... it could be set for external display so if you have a monitor or tv you can hook it to try and see if you get display that way. LMK... TKS!

Try this solution :

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
Note : Please see that there are no external devices or cables connected to the Notebook.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook.

Additionally, try removing and reinserting the RAM sticks by following the instructions listed in page number 119 of 266 :

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00530488.pdf

If the issue repeats, try connecting the Notebook to any Desktop Monitor and press the FN and F4 key so that the display will transfer to the desktop monitor connected.

If there is no display on the LCD of the Notebook or on the Desktop monitor connected, issue can either be with the Graphic Card of the Notebook or Motherboard itself.

I am sure these instructions are helpful.

I had the same problem with the HP Pavilion dv4000 where the lights would come on at power and the hard drive light flicker, then nothing. I went through the same procedures outlined here to no avail.

What worked for me and maybe there is a loose connection or glitch in the BIOS, but when I powered on the laptop I squeezed the lower left side of the laptop next to the touchpad from the top and bottom. Voila, I saw my Windows logo pop up. I then decided to see if messing with it would cause any reaction and it did. The progress bar on the Windows start up screen froze until I squeezed the left side again and it continued.

I am in the process of updating the BIOS and see if this resolved the issue. If not, possibly the RAM is loose or needs to be cleaned since the modules are near this area of pressure I apply.

The scan function won't work on my HP Deskjet F4280. When I press the scan button, all that happens is the light on the power button starts flashing. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

HP Pavilion dv4000 does not power up.


I have had this happen a couple of times but not sure if its the same for you. There is a small button on the upper right that engages whenever the laptop screen is closed. I was experiencing the same thing when I accidentally brushed the button. I didn't notice anything happen but, I next pressed the power button and it came on???? I guess there is some dohicky in there that triggers the off feature. I haven't decided to ignore this with software yet.

I saw this while researching charging issues where a new battery is installed, calibrated and now will not charge?? any ideas?

Computer won't turn on.....


Try taking the battery out and leaving the laptop sit then put it back in and try turning it on, if this fails take the battery out and leave sit replace and plug it it and try powering it up then repeat all but leave the battery out.

It may also be a loose connection within the laptop, if it feel or something may of shorted, in desktops reseting the cmos or jumping the computer can help start a dead machine

let me know how you get on (i dont have any faith in the system it worked once out of 1000 for me)

The printer apear to be dead!


Buttons and lights on the printer Two buttons and three lights are located on the front of an HP Deskjet printer.
  • The lights tell when the printer is working or when it needs attention.
  • The buttons help control the printer.
Buttons and lights Purpose c00123886.jpg POWER button and light Push the POWER button to turn the printer off and on. When lit, the light shows that the printer is turned on. c00123889.jpg RESUME button and light The light blinks when there is a problem with paper. When the problem is corrected, press the button. c00123892.jpg Print cartridge light The light blinks when there is a problem with a print cartridge. When the problem is corrected and the top cover is closed, the light will stop blinking. Troubleshooting blinking printer lights Blinking lights Reason c00123895.jpg

All lights are off. The printer is off (asleep).

Press the POWER buttonc00123886.jpg to turn the printer on.

The printer should turn on automatically when a print job is sent to it. c00123898.jpg

The POWER (top) light is on. The printer is idle.

The printer is ready to print a document. c00123900.jpg

The POWER (top) light is blinking. The printer is busy printing.

Allow enough time to print. When a document has many fonts or graphics or uses complex color such as a color photo, it takes longer to begin printing. c00123902.jpg

The PRINT CARTRIDGE (bottom) light is blinking. Possible causes:

  • The front cover is open. Make sure the front cover is completely closed.
  • The print cartridge is missing. Make sure the print cartridge has been installed correctly.
  • The print cartridge is broken or incompatible. Lift the front cover, and wait for the print-cartridge cradle to slide out. Check the part numbers on the print cartridge:


Black: 51645A

Color: C1823D,

If the print cartridges are compatible and correctly installed, they may be defective. Try replacing the print cartridges.

If none of the above suggestions fix the problem, and, if the error message still occurs, it may be a hardware failure. Call the HP Customer Support Center.
