Replace A Dvd In An Hp Dv6000

Replace a DVD in an HP DV6000

The components in a computer with moving parts are often the first to stop working, and if you have owned your HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop computer for a while, you may find that the DVD drive has difficulty reading or burning discs. If this is the case, the DVD drive may need to be replaced. You can remove the DVD drive in the HP Pavilion dv6000 if the original drive has stopped working or if you simply would like to substitute a drive that can only read DVDs for one that can read and write them.


1. Shut the Pavilion dv6000 down and remove the battery along with any cables or peripherals attached to the computer. Place the dv6000 on a scratch-free surface with the screen closed and facing down.

2. Unscrew the Phillips-head screw near the battery release latch and immediately under the DVD drive. Place the screw in a safe location.

3. Extend the paper clip and push it into the small hole next to the eject button for the DVD drive. With the paper clip held inside the hole, grip the edge of the DVD drive with your fingers and pull it out of the Pavilion dv6000.

4. Unscrew the two Phillips-head screws holding the small metal bracket to the back of the DVD drive. Reserve the screws and bracket.

5. Place the bracket on the back of the replacement DVD drive and screw it into place.

6. Slide the replacement DVD drive fully into the Pavilion dv6000 and replace the Phillips-head screw on the bottom of the computer.
