My power button is not working either.  Last night everything was fine.  This morning I found my PC off and the power button will not work to power up the PC.

Re: pavillion g6 power button not working

Hi, guys

 

I know this post is a bit old but I too did the same thing, and I just figured out how to fix it.  Follow this youtube clip.

At about the 4:20 mark he takes off the keyboard.  In the top right hand corner you will see a ribbon join, all that happened is that this has been disconnected when you cleaned your fan.  So you will see the corresponding join not too far away from it, insert the ribbon into the latch then close it.  Once youve done this put it all back together again and if it doesnt work then it probably means the latch is broken or the ribbon is broken.  Or the issue is further in again, but this fixed mine.

 

Cheers
