HP pavilion zd8000, Battery not charging

\015 Some days ago the battery stopped charging and the indicator led blinks every time the battery is in the device, my computer is a year and a half old. I tried with a new battery but it isn't charging, it still the same. I updated the BIOS and also did the power drain. None resolved the problem. \015\012\015\012I will appreciate any help!\015\012\015\012Thank you\015

The problems with the HP Pavilion (Particularly the ZD8000) are sadly well-known by HP. It's not a problem with the battery or the charger or anything you can easily fix. The problem is heat. If you search long enough, you'll find hundreds of people with three problems: 1) the battery stops holding a charge after about 8 months, they buy a new one and get the same problem; 2) certain keys stop working on the keyboard, they remove the battery and the keys work again; 3) permanent lines start to appear on the display and never go away.

\015\012Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about these problems with the ZD8000, except stop using it as a laptop and ditch the battery. I have been problem-free since I ditched my third battery and just use it with a power cord.

\015\012Last year, I filed a formal complaint with the Better Business Bureau regarding HP's failure to acknowledge this problem and recall the machine. Each time I called service, I was instructed to follow the battery initialization procedure. All this does is allow support to get rid of you for 24 wasted hours, after which you have to call again and talk to some one new who tells you to do the same thing. The problem is, the procedure fails because the battery won't hold a chage in the first place. If you get to the end of the procedure with them after wasted days, they tell you to buy a new battery.

\015\012The HP ZD8000 is defective and never should have been released with a Pentium 4 processor. It's too hot and fries the battery and damages the screen.
How many HP ZD8000 owners have to experience this problem before a class action suit can be filed against HP for a recall and a permanent fix for the problem? Just curious if anyone knows the answer to that question?
