Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V5000T Notebook ?

Lid switch location??????????

\015 Anyone know where the lid switch is located on a compaq v5000 laptop. My display keeps going blank and if I close and then open the lid it flickers back into life before going off again. Any help greatly appreciated....Compaq V5000 backlight is out. I can see the logo during POST and Windows boots, I can see the Welcome Screen.I've hooked up external VGA, it works just fine. I've swapped 3 LCD panels that are known good and 3 inverters known to be good. Same problem on all of them. I cannot find any information on the switch, whether or not it's magnetic, etc. I'm stumped.\015

If You want test lid switch, just connect A+B together for a monent!
If the monitor flashes on...? Lid switch is faulty.
It is too dificult to change the lid switch, so the easiest way is connect these pins together forever. :))

Dont forget to turn off your notebook... he wont sleep anymore ;))

Hi, I have a hp pavilion dv2000 one day just the backligth of LCD dont work. First I think in a inverter problem, later an lamp problem. But after some days I did find many people have the same problem with this model (dv2000); and 90% the problem was a fail in LID switch (magnetic detection) to know if the LCD is open or closed. So the main board think the LCD is closed and for save energy keep turned off the LCD backligth. In my laptop the problem can be workaround by disconecting the lid switch . I think the V5000 series have one LID1 connector like the DV2000 series. You can get more info in the next link
