Hp pavilion dv6 charge light blinking with no power

Hi guys, my laptop fell like 3 feet off the bed and now won't charge or turn on. When I plug in the ac cord, the charge light rapidly blinks. It is a white color led blinking. What does this mean as the manual only has white, amber, and blinking amber options. I tried just using the battery and it does not turn on. Also tried the hard reset where you hold the power button for 30sec to 1min. Any solutions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello,

I understand that you are not able to turn your notebook on, or charge it. I would like to be able to assist you with this, but first I would need a bit more information. What would be the full model number of your notebook be. I have included the following document 'Guide to finding your product number'. As well what version of Windows are you running. I have included the document, 'Which Windows operating system am I running?'.

Thank you.

Re: Hp pavilion dv6 charge light blinking with no power

Hello,

Thank you for the information. For the battery light blinking repeatedly, I have included the following document 'Computer Does Not Start and the LEDs Blink or the Computer Beeps'. Once you do have the link open, click on Battery power LED blinks' and follow through the steps.

The second document that I have included is 'Computer Does not Start (Windows 7, Vista, XP)'. Once you do have the document open, please click on the symptom that your computer is having, and follow through the steps in order.

The last document that I have included is, 'Battery Does not Power Notebook or Hold a Charge'. This will take you through the different options of testing the battery, power supply, and system board.

Please let me know if you are able to turn the notebook on after this, thank you.

Thank you for the info. According to the diagnostic tests, my system board is most likely busted. So I guess it's time to bury my 1 year old friend.

Re: Hp pavilion dv6 charge light blinking with no power

Hello,

Thank you for the information. After completing the troubleshooting steps and finding out that the system board i no longer functioning properly. One option I would suggest is replacing the system board. I have included the 'HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide', and if you scroll to page 85. It will show the parts that are need to replace and how to replace the system board.

Please let me know if this works, thank you.

Re: Hp pavilion dv6 charge light blinking with no power

I have a similar problem with a DV6408nr. The blue light is on around the power adapter. When pressing the power button, all blue lights flash for a second then the system shuts down immediately.It's as if the power is getting to the LED's but not flowing elsewhere and prompting the system to turn itself off.

 

The battery charge light will blink continuously. I let it charge for at least 30 minutes and tried to power on with the same result as above.

 

Thanks for the information so far.
