HP DV9000 wireless on/off switch fail?
Posted on 2010-09-23
I'm working on an HP DV9000 sometimes wireless works and sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't it seems to co inside with the switch on the front of the laptop only staying orange.
Usually when the wireless switch is moved to the right the light goes blue and the wireless card picks up signals.
Now it only stays orange either way.
I have reseated the wifi card.
I have also opened the laptop and made sure the ribbon cable is seated firmly. (the ribbon also does the leds for the hd,pwr, and ac.
Has anyone dealt with this or could help me confirm where the problem lies. IE faulty mechanical switch?
