Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook ?

My HP Pavilion dv6000's sound system is not working anymore. The mute option on the touchpad is stuck. Every diagnostic I've run says the audio is fine. I've tried to do a system restore and now the system restore doesn't work either. My little grandson loves to watch himself on videos on my computer and he's coming tomorrow. Please help.


Answers :

This is a common problem, the cable that connects the button board to the system board goes bad. Usually but not always the power button stops working as well and the speakers. Replacement cables can be purchased on eBay or from: www.2fix.net. Its fairly easy to replace the cables.
Its a known problem with this laptop,everything appears to be working , but you get no sound from the speakers though the headphone jack works fine.
\015\012If you press down on the casing near to the power button and the sound comes on then you have a loose contact/ribbon cable fault which these laptops are prone to.
\015\012As to the "Fix" either use a set of external speakers or take it into a repairer to get it fixed,
\015\012If it's still under warranty then you have a claim.
