Re: help with scroll volume bar on pavilion dv6-1330sa

Sounds like an issue with the keyboard bezel, it is most likely a loose ribbon cable from the circuit board on the keyboard bezel to the ZIF connector on the motherboard.  A HP Authorized Service Center can take a look at this if your laptop is under warranty.  The warranty status can be checked here:


If it is not under warranty, consider looking up the maintenance manual for your model laptop.  The manual will have schematics on how to disassemble the laptop, a keyboard bezel is a little tricky but not too hard to remove.  You'll need a spudger, an Torx-8 screwdriver and a Phillips-1 screwdriver.  Remove the ribbon cable that connects the bezel to the motherboard and re-seat it, ensuring that the ribbon cable lays flush with the bottom of the ZIF connector, push down on the ZIF to seal the connection and re-assemble the keyboard bezel and keyboard, putting all the screws back in.
