Hp pavilion dv8000 help

\015 I thought my power supply cord was going out because the battery would not charge and the plug lights did not come on, so I purchased a new one. The battery is completely dead but when I plug in the cord the battery does not charge and the laptop boots into windows xp fine and then shuts off. I tried using it without the battery and only the plug and it has no power. It is not the power supply cord..for sure...what else could it be?\015

Answers :

I had the EXACT same issue on my HP Pavilion DV8000. After reading this thread I started disecting the machine, sure the issue was a faulty internal power plug/cable. It is TRULY a big job, but very doable without special tools. You pretty much have to take every single screw out of the thing to get to that stupid cable.

Here are a few things to know:
1) there are a lot of screws - mainly long black (L 12) and short silver (L 5x2.5). Keep track of all of them in order so you don't end up like me - with 3 leftovers. Lol. There is ONE long black screw that is a little shorted than the others (L 10). This is one I had left over. There are two VERY tiny black ones. I also have one of those left over. There is also a few smaller black ones, too. Just keep them all noted as you remove them and remember where these odd ones go!
2) There are some very flat band cables that plug in to tiny plgs. However thereis no plug on the cable. The flat end just shuves into the plugs. These are very delicate. be gentle with them.
3) When you finally get the housing for the fan loose you can now get to the entire power supply cable. Here is a note: I FIXED my problem by unplugging this cable and plugging it back in. The cable runs under the fan housing, and it seems like you have to remove that housing to get to the cable, but actually it comes out again right next to the processor and heat sink. There is a thin sheet of black sticky insulator tape over the processor and the cable at that point. You'll have to gently remove it. There is not much room there, but you CAN unplug the cable without removing the entire fan housing.

Here is what I did to test this plug and cable. After unplugging it, I shoved a tiny straightened staple (the female plug is very tiny) into the female receptacles for the prongs on the motherboard (red and black only). Then I plugged the power supply in to the power jack. With a DC meter I verified that the female end of the power cable inside the machine was getting juice, and it was.

With nothing left to test, I put it all back together (save three screws) and it is now charging the battery and running from the ad power plug. Whatever I did fixed it!

One last note: There are 4 sequenced screws that hold the heat sink tight. These are under a bit of pressure so the sink is tight. DO NOT remove these as the sink has a heat conducting "goo" that helps it disperse the processor heat. As old as these machines are now, you don't really want to disrupt that "goo" and risk the processor over heating.

I hope all of this typing helps someone.
Find out how to open up your computer youself and where the wires run from your ac power plug to motherboard has a little socket it plug. sounds like it is not connected. lol, free advice. Just plug it in
