Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

6 Answers

I have an HP PAvilion dv6000 that won't turn on. My brother was able to use it just fine couple of days ago then when we tried to use it just the other day, it won't turn on. I can see that it is charging but when we turn it on, nothing happens. No noise or other lights. No activities at all.

The common failure on the DV6 line is the power flex cable goes bad. If you can power the unit on by pressing the Quickplay button on the keyboard cover (icon looks like a circular arrow), then your prob is resolved by a simple cable (that HP doesnt sell individually :/ ). If you still have no power to the unit, your next likely candidate for failure is the dc harness (percentage-wise unlikely, but part of the troubleshooting process), or the mlb (systemboard). 10bucks on the flex cable ;) -Sy

Ok, you have a DV6000 series unit.
If the unit has not been dropped or mis handled you may just have a simple connection problem.
1st. You dont need the battery to run the 6000. If the battery charges and after 20 or 30 minutes, the charge light go out, the battery has completed its charge and thats a plus for you.
2nd. Remove the battery from unit, remove the large cover where you will find the memory and remove each unit.
Please the memory in or on a plastic bag and take care not to have dammaged.
3rd. You will see a CMOS battery with a white plug on the end, carefully disconnect.
4th. Flip unit over, open the cover and press power button for 15-30 seconds. This will discharge any caps. inline with your power.
5ft. Re-install memory first and plugin CMOS battery.
Last of all try powering up unit with and without battery.
When plugging in power supply, check and see if a blue light come on at the plugin point on laptop.
Good luck hope all works for you. [email protected]
P.S. dont forget to secure the base cover on the bottom.

I just want to share my experience with the HP Pavilion dv6000 (dv6105 to be precise) laptop. I purchased this laptop in Jan/Feb 2007. It worked OK for the first year. It ran very slow due to all the **** HP makes you load when you install the OS. Late Feb 2008 it began to not turn on. Power button wouldn't turn it on unless you pressed really REALLY hard. My husband immediately googled this problem and found this website http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us. He immediately called HP. They told us that we didn't qualify for the free repair. We didn't understand but for whatever reason we trusted the rep. The laptop continued to have problems turning on. We had to use the tip of a ballpoint pen and press it in a certain spot on the power button while standing up and putting all our pressure on the button. This method stopped working in Nov 2008. My husband called HP again and again we were told we didn't qualify for the free repair. Again not understanding why but trusted the rep. So we opened the laptop to try to see if there was something we could do to fix it. At this point the laptop has no use. The quickplay button brings you to a screen with a windows icon that doesn't take you to windows, it takes you to hibernate and you can't escape out. August of 2009 we decided to reinvestigate the $600 doorstop to see what could be done. In researching and calling HP again, two more times, turns out it is a faulty motherboard (HP admits this) and our problem DID fit the scenario for the free repair but now it had been longer than 2 years and so we would have to pay $400 for it. HOW CONVENIENT. I started researching how much it would cost to repair myself and decided that I wasn't comfortable doing that even though I thought I could do it for around $150. So I call HP AGAIN. They have a big rubber stamp that says "NO" on it. The first rep I called says "sorry, nothing we can do, you will have to pay for the repair" so I demand to speak to the supervisor. They come back on the line and say the supervisor will offer a discount of $259 for the repair. So they are still trying to profit off of my unfortunate predicament that THEY put me in. This doesn't satisfy me. I am put on hold for 40 minutes while I hold for a supervisor and no one ever comes to the line. Wayne was this persons name. I call in again to the number in the link above. The woman immediately says "well we've already told you what we can do and you didn't accept it" when I ask for a supervisor. She finally gets the supervisor, "Donald" who repeatedly says "You can try to "COMPLAIN" to get a "FREE" repair, but I have seen this a hundred times and no one ever gets a free repair so you are wasting your time." I keep pressing and then get routed to a "case manager." The case manager was so nice. He looked at my case, saw that we had called in during the first two years twice to report the issue and were told in error that we didn't qualify when really we did. We get our free repair now.

Keep calling the number in the link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us and demand to have your case routed to a CASE MANAGER even if you never called before and it has been longer than two years. The only person who can authorize the repair is the case manager so skip that horrible customer service team. If that doesn't work, join the CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT http://www.sfmslaw.com/pages/cases.php?id=300 against HP due to the faulty laptops that HP won't recall and fix.

Cheers.

I have a refurbished dv9535nr that suddenly would not turn on. When you pressed the power buttons the lights came on and then turned off. After trying some of the above with no success I replaced the Cmos Battery and it worked. That was a $5.00 fix. Computer tech's that checked it over said the motherboard had failed when in fact it didn't. Good thing I'm persistent and didn't throw it our or recycle it.

Newer HP Pavilion dv6000 turned off while in use and wont turn on

1.Start your computer and see if your hear your fan noise,and cannot see anything on screen then there is problem with your power supply.

2.If you cannot hear your fan noise,and do not see anything on screen,then there is problem with your motherboard

3.if you hear fan noise and can see something on screen,then it is the issue with your hard disk (very less cases)

Mostly it would be the 2nd case that you will have to get your motherboard replaced

When I turn on my HP dv9000 I get a constant loud beep. have to hit escape button to stop it several times

Re: dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 recall ubatz - Just got my laptop back from repairs a couple of days early. Cosmetically it's perfectly fine.

I kept the easy peel plastic on the lid, had an extra one and covered all around inside the keyboard (but not the keyboard itself). Got a page that says the LCD cable was fixed.

The rubber circles at the bottom of the LCD panel are pushed in at an odd angle but I'm afraid if I try to move them back, they're going to pop backward and disappear altogether behind the LCD.

I did order my Vostro last night and changed my sig file a few minutes ago to remove the DV9700T from it.

I haven't turned it on yet. Mixed emotions. Ah well.

My hp ze4300 will not turn on

Has there been a power surge meanwhile? If so, try unplugging the power cord, press the power button, reconnect power and try booting. Sometimes works.
