    Default HP Pavilion DV6 Power Issues

    Hi Lads and Ladies,

    Having a slight issue with a HP dv6 I was given a few weeks back now.

    Was all working sweet a month ago. Left it sitting for that time period to order a new battery as the original wasnt holding charge. Went to fire it up the other day and nothing.

    Tried 2 known working AC adaptors
    Tried both batteries
    Removed/reseated RAM/ HD/ CMOS battery.

    Still nothing, no LED indicating power to motherboard. Tested voltage and getting 14v on the DC jack off the motherboard and 19V on the AC adapter.

    I see this is a common issue with the ol' DV6s.

    Anyone out there that can suggest anything else before I go and reflow the solder joints?

    Just seems funny it was working a month ago and now it's a paperweight.

    If I've missed anything so let me know

    Cheers !!

    Its not a common issue with DV6's, its a issue with old notebooks in general . This issue can happen to all brands, all models .
    A reflow isnt a magic fix, you may need to repair the internal power circuitry , or replace the GPU , or may be as simple as a faulty power socket . Or may be stuck in Win10's 'fast start' mode (less likely)

    The DV6 is old. Its not really worth repairing with this sort of fault.
    You could buy a working one or similar spec off trademe from $100 upwards . (sometimes less)
