Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

2 Answers

Sudden power shut down/will not power up

MY HP dv6000z is about 1 1/2 years old. It has worked just fine but it lost power, just like someone pulled the plug, and now it will not power up at all. The blue light by the power jack is on but that is the only indicator light that is on.

I was starting to plug my Garmin in the USB port but it shut down before I could get it in, I don't think I even touched the port at all.

I have not noticed any clock problems but I did notice a strange time stamp on an IM I sent a few days back.

Try these steps :


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 power.

If the Notebook doesnot start fine, we may have to need a Desktop monitor to check whether the issue is with the LCD, Graphic Card or the Motherboard itself.

Connect a Desktop Monitor to the VGA Port of the Notebook and press FN + F4 key to get the display on the Desktop monitor after the power button is pressed.

If you get the display on the Desktop monitor, the issue is with the LCD of the Notebook.

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

Confirm if the Notebook is in warranty or not.

There are some known issues with few HP Pavilioin Notebooks installed with AMD Processors.

I just got this laptop from a friend and was working fine. now i cant get it to power on after i shut it down using the normal shut down. I didnt cut off by using the button. Now i cant get it to cut back...


a 17 year old Laptop , 99.9% now in the dumpster.
are you going to spend cash on this? if yes why?
if it was a horse it be in the glue factory.
a dead laptop
step 1: is remove that old shorted huge battery now.,
step 2: then that 17 year old useless as a brick RTC coin cell.
replace it now. or BIOS will be DEAD.
strep 3 , a working power pack 19vdc,65watts up. and does the PC fan work now?, if not, it needs lots more cash !!!!
ask if you can get this far.?
above can be done for $10 (8buck pack and 2 buck coin)
leave that main battery out , until the PC runs like new.
do not buy a battery main, do not. unless cash dont matter.

if this far, and the power button fails, then we must strip the PC down, to find out who is shorting the power buses !
or fan is bad, or just packed fully in lint , as all are that old.


do the HP hard reset yet,
?
see line 6 here, to the HP page on , hard power reset.
http://pcdied.com/black-screen.html#Laptop


and then the other tests. after that.


here are the goals
1: power seems to work (the switch)
2: the fan works, and actually blow air, not packed up
3: screen shows text of any kind, like, "hit F10 to enter HP setup"
as seen for 17 years but not todaY?
4:BIOS key works. F10 key works as prompted . and BIOS screens all work.
5: more, get this far say so... lots more its not a toaster

Sudden shutdown


If the battery is full and still shuts down suddenly then it could be a heatsinking problem on your Notebook. Also try unchecking the option "Automatically Restart" from StartUp & Recovery section in System Properties.

3. remove the battery
and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer

HP L2000 Sudden shutdown wont power up power supply good


what makes you think the ac park is ok
19vdc measured with a voltmeter proves this , only.
a 2005 (as old as) Laptop
its not new, things this old do fail.
Laptops are like dog years.. 7:1. so yours is 84years old
to fix a desktop is super easy
to test a laptop takes greater skills, the take down. is tricky
we take out the battery,
the the pack just make the fan run in the PC
does it>? if not the pack is bad.
or the MOBO regs are shut down. (shorts on any thing inside
some times the 19vdc is ok, at that pack
then 1 inches inside the PC its dead due to that silly power jack loves to fail. but not taking the thing down and testing that
its all just a guessing game...
the only insight there is on electronics, is power first.
no power, no joy.
test the power feeds first.

Won't boot up, Hard drive self test result #1-07 Fail


Hi there.
The hard drive has failed and you will need to replace it.
If the laptop is under a year old take advantage of the warranty and send it in to be repaired for free.


Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
