Your battery is most likely dead and needs to be replaced. You can contact the manufacturer or shop around sites like amazon.com for a new one.

    HP PAVILLION Dm4 BATTERY NOT CHARGING


    When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

    My HP pavilion ze4949 will not charge the battery. I got this laptop 2nd hand, and the "charging" light that the manual states should be lit while the AC adapter is plugged in has never lit;...


    Take the battery out and see if the A/C charger will run the PC.
    If so the portion of the PC Motherboard that charges the battery has failed.
    The Motherboard is the heart of the PC and quite difficult to replace at home.

    Go to a PC repair and see if it is worth fixing. BIG Labor cast.

    Sorry!

    Check the power adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage of the power plug that plugs into the power socket on the laptop should be slight higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
    If it is faulty, there are replacement power supplies available on the Internet or at your friendly computer shop.
    If the adapter is OK then the power socket on the laptop is faulty or this socket has a dry solder joint connection on the motherboard.
    You can test this by wriggling the power plug when it is connected to the laptop, if the charge LED flickers and if you hold this plug in a certain position the charge LED stays on without flickering, then the power socket is faulty.
    This can be repaired, but requires the laptop to be completely
    disassembled. I suggest you get a quote first.

    My laptop HP Pavillion ZV6000, battery started decreasing and wouldn't charge when the ac adapter was connected. I purchased another ac adapter thinking that was my problem. It didn't work. Now I have...


    As others have said, the most common fault with the ZV series is the power socket. However, you mentioned the Lightning Bolt. This indicates that the battery is being charged and it should go out as soon as the battery is fully charged.

    If the Lightning Bolt flashes on and off regularly, especially when the power cable is moved, then the socket is at fault and needs replacing.

    You can check to see if the battery is receiving a charge by doing the following

    1. Right Click the Desktop
    2. Click Properties
    3. Click the Screen Saver tab
    4. Click the Power button
    5. Click the Power Meter tab

    This will tell you the computer's current power source and whether the battery is charging.

    I have replaced several of these sockets on ZV5000s and I'm sure the 6000 will be similar. I would not recommend this job for anyone without technical knowledge, despite some of the websites that say you can do it yourself. You will need to strip the entire laptop down and all but remove the motherboard before the socket can be replaced.

    Hope this helps

    Charging problems


    Hopefully the battery is just confused and needs to be reset. Drain the battery down until the system shuts off automatically, then take the battery out of the laptop for two minutes and plug it back in, and connect the AC adapter, let it charge without turning the laptop on, then turn it on and hopefully it should work fine again. If not then you may need to buy another battery. Try again with another AC adapter just in case because you don't want to replace your battery (expensive!)

    Please rate, thanks!

    plug in the power adapter, make sure the battery is installed firmly, let it run for 6 to 10 hours..hopefully the battery, installed under the unit, will be fresh enough to accept a recharge cycle.

    got backup for that computer?
