I just purchased a replacement battery for my HP Pavilion dv6-7000 laptop to replace my older one. The replacement worked fine for about a week, and now when I have this battery plugged in the computer only works when the charger is plugged into the computer. When the charger is pugged in, the computer does recognize the battery and says that it is fully charged, but when the charger is unplugged the computer dies as if I had removed the battery (or the battery was not plugged in).
I have run multiple diagnostic tests such as that in the HP Support Assistant which says that the battery is OK, and the computer can still boot up with the original battery (which just has a decreased capacity). So I do not believe that this is a problem with the computer, but rather with the battery.
How can I determine the problem with this new battery and get it to work again?

Thanks for stopping by the HP Support Forums! 🙂 Good day. 🙂 I understand that you are looking for assistance regarding battery issues on your computer, where the new battery does not hold any charge. It will be a genuine pleasure to assist you here. 🙂
A commendable job was done by diagnosing the issue and troubleshooting correctly, before posting your question in the HP forums. 🙂 It is always a great pleasure to work with tech-savvy d customers like you. 🙂 Kudos to you for that. We definitely value your relationship with HP tremendously. We appreciate you greatly for doing business with HP and I take it as a privilege to share this platform with you. 🙂
First off, we need to diagnose the issue correctly and establish whether it is hardware or software related.
Going by the troubleshooting that you’ve done it could be an issue with the new battery and you could get a replacement battery if the battery is under warranty. (accessory being under warranty).
Please perform a few steps to isolate the issue
Please perform a hard reset first. Link: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01684768
Then please run F2 diagnostics for the battery from this link: http://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c03467259
Please run diagnostics from component tests on the batter and make a note of any failure code for a failed component that may get displayed.
