Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
My Hp laptop speakers stopped working...first it was the left one for a while, and last night the right went out along with it. Now I have NO sound at all. On the left side on top of the keyboard, it is raised a little bit, I've tried to look behind it to see if something is unplugged, but can't tell anything...I'm afraid to pull it totally off, because there is hundreds of wires connected going everywhere! Someone please help! Am I going to have to call the Geek Squad to get this fixed?!
If your laptop is still under warranty then this is something they have to repair for you. It sounds like a hardware error, not sure about the actual fault but two speakers burnt is weird. (Especially if you keep the volume near 60-70% of the max volume)
Still if the laptop is out of warranty then dissasemblying is required. The information required are all give to the Service manual of th DV6000 provided from HP itself along with the part list and coding of the new set of speakers you need.
The process is not hard actually for this model. It can be done fairly easy. (in other laptop a complete disassembly is required which is very tough task)
The manual you will need is the one below. (Simply left click)
At page 146 you will see how the speakers are removed. Also follow the instruction on the quoted previous sections.
The part number of the speakers is 431447-001 and it is mentioned at the same page.
The part costs around 5$ used from Ebay :) If you dont believe me check it out yourself :)
Many regards and I hope you can get your precious laptop working again as a charm :)
