There are only a few parts involved.
The top of this forum plus google tells you enough but here it is. What other parts are involved? (Hint: CCFL tubes and wires.)
But I have grim news. Too many dv6000/dv9000 and a few other models are dropping like flies. My advice is to cut your losses and move on.
These models are WELL DISCUSSED. Your choice to continue the pain.
HP dv6000 inverter and backlighting problem
Thank you Bob. You're probably right and I should buy a better and newer laptop but before doing so at list let me try one time more before giving it up.
So the CCFL tube has been replaced and the inverter board as well. No other part (e.g. wires) has been replaced. I am personally concerned about the inverter since the replacement was an equivalent and not a true HP part number. Of course this is only an opinion
It could be just that.
That the replacement suffered the "infant mortality" that you read so much about. It seems the choices are limited to "what next?" One think I would not do is get the same unit from the same vendor.
Re: I have the same problem with HP dv6000 model
it has been a half yr since i left it unfixed. The problem is that the screen is black while the power is still on. if you were successful, could you tell me how you did? is it just the matter of inverter between the panel and video card?
HP DV6000 light bulb and inverter problem
Actually I am still thinking on what to do. I mean I'd like to buy another inverter to see the result but before doing that I wanted to wait some time until something new pops up.
So far the behaviour is very consistent and repetitive: 10 minutes after PC switch on the LCD goes black. There is no way to recover but rebooting the system. It is very frustrating.
I was also thinking about some bug within the OS. Maybe somebody may advice.
Anyway I will keep the community posted about the results, if any.
And does an external display work? The dv6000 is well known in the shops and other places as a problem unit. Maybe it's the known issue and not the inverter?
Yes, definitely the PC works perfectly if connected to an external screen. I noticed it the very first time the LCD turned black. At that time the behavior was very stable, in other words the LCD continued to remain black until I decided to change both the light bulb and the inverter. Then the behaviour I described previously appeared. I was not aware of the bug you are referring to in your message. Do you mean that there is a way to solve this issue?
Easy enough to research.
DV6000 all by it's lonesome on goggle finds the discussions. I don't duplicate all that. Sorry about that. It's done. Done to death. Thousands of times.
Moving on. HP is changing motherboards.
DV6000 backlighting problem
Hey, I solved the problem! Or better I found the way to go round it.
It was enough to reduce the backlight intensity to nearly 50% to get a stable and continuous LCD performance. It's roughly a week it is running that way.
I definetely was not able to understand the reason of the defect but at least I can still use my PC.
This my little contribution
To get the most life from this machine.
1. Put it on a cooling pad. At the very least some blocks on the rear to give it more air.
2. DON'T USE IT AS A LAPTOP. Park it on the desk and don't carry it around.
can you write down what you exactly did in numbered forms?
locate on your PC keyboard the keys for increasing or decreasing the backlighting level and simply adjust it!
