    Looking at the same model for a co-worker. Charge light comes on, but pressing the power button only results in a half-second of lights and then turns off. Person also reported a loose power jack. I took laptop apart. Reseated RAM, CPU and heatsink (replacing thermal compound with pad). I was able to get something on the screen once for about 30 seconds after unplugging and removing the adapter for several minutes. I am about to give up.

    I tried witout the battery, and just I plug the charger it's turn on but shuts off in about 5 minutes sometimes less than that. I need help I cleaned the fan and change the thermal compound. But nothing seems to work.

HP ZD 7000 wont power up. Will plug in, power light on, press the power button, light goes out computer doesnt turn on


I had a similar though somewhat different problem. My zd7000 was plugged in but it was oscillating between charging the battery and running from the battery. In the past I'd adjust the jack position and life was good - this time nothing mattered. I turned the laptop off and noticed that the charge light came on and stayed on - I guessed something was freaky with the battery so I switched to my spare - the charger light came on, I turned on the power I had a brief power on followed by zzzzttt then everything died. I could smell the stench of electrical burning. I disassemble the whole laptop and removed the motherboard - the back of the power jack is burned. A new jack is $10.

If I had to guess, I"d guess you have a bad jack. I've seen offers to repair this on the net for $100. If the offer is legit, I'd rather pay the bucks - theres only 5 billion screws in the laptop - plus the risk of static discharge damaging to boards or the pain of getting the processor heat sink out without damaging the processor and then getting heat conducting "grease" between the processor and the heat sink when you put it all back together again. I figured my unit was dead anyway, might as well see if I could find the issue. Now I need to get a new jack - and see if I can get it all back together again...

Hello,

First of all, disconnect your battery from back of the

laptop, then try and get a friend or a technician that

uses the same type of laptop, and try to swap the

battery just to check whether it works and charges

it properly. Also do the same thing with the

Adapter/Charger and charge it with it.

This is because, there are two diagnostic possibilities

here:

1.) It is either the battery that you bought is not good

and you need to return it quickly before its too late

or;

2.) The charger that you are using is bad, or not

supplying enough current to charge the battery

cells...and this might even damage the battery after

a while, or make the battery not to charge to its full

capacity and as well discharge quickly.

Try this out and let me know how it goes.

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck and thanks for using fixya.

I installed a new battery in My HP DV4000 laptop but it won't charge. It's a 8800mah and says 11.1 volts. The old one says 10.8 volts. Any ideas?


this problem happens when the voltage of the battery is slightly less or equal or more than the output voltage of the charger u need a more powerful charger for charging that battery

HP ZV 5000 AC PROBLEM


Hello,

You either have a bad adapter or a broken power jack in the laptop. To check the adapter use a multimeter set to voltage and connect one lead to the center in and the other to the outside metal contact. You should get a reading from 18 to about 26 volts. If you get no reading then the adapter needs to be replaced. If you get the correct reading then the power jack in the laptop will need to be replaced. If yo are ok with electronics repair you can get the jacks from Ebay.com if not your local computer repair shop should be able to do it for you.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution,

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

HP ZV 5000 laptop AC adaptor switches to battery power randomly. The AC adaptor has only one year of usage on it and it works fine when the switch to battery power problem (luckily) doesn't occur. Also the...


We have two different HP Pavilion laptops, and they've both done this. For us it hs been the AC cord itself where it plugs in to the computer that has been the problem. Personally I think it is a scam with an imminent design failure built in. The cord bends right after the plug over an over again until the cables inside start to break and or short. At first you can get it to work by angling the cable just so until the charge indicator comes on, but after a while it just gets too far gone.

The scam part for ALL laptops that I have seen is that the cable is not replaceable. You have to replace the whole adapter. Of course the section of cable from the wall to the adapter is replaceable, but the cable from the adapter itself to the computer is hard wired, and that is the only part that breaks!

I have had minor success in repairing or replacing the ends, but the best fix is to get a new one. eBay has some for much cheaper than HP.

please check first that does the notebook work fine on the battery mode.
if system does not work on battery mode also it is a fault of the board that would have to be replaced

if it works fine on battery, then the problem could be with the adapter
to check the same, please try using another adapter or the same adapter on another hp notebook.
if the adapter does not work on another notebook, please get the adapter replaced.
