HP DV6000 Laptop wont stay on or use the screen at all

By techjoe898 ·
The computer will try to turn on but then shuts down several times and nothing ever comes up on the screen. I can get it to stay on if I use the ctrl, alt, delete keys or just the windows key but still nothing on the screen just black like its not on at all. I kind of suspect that the switch for the screen may have went out but I don't really know and cant find a site to find out how to get to this switch. I would be wiling to try about anything.

This is a known issue, although I doubt an HP tech (and I use the term loosely) would know about it.

Have a CAREFUL look down at the screen hinge ...

Somewhere between the laptop screen and the laptop body, there'll be a teeny-weeny little switch that gets depressed when the screen is closed, so the laptop hardware gets the 'signal' the screen has been shut (for instigating Hibernation/Standby it it is invoked).

See if altering the screen angle quickly shows any improvement but BE CAREFUL - these screens can flex quite easily - probably best to open/close it holding both sides at the same time.
