dv6000 power switch issue

The power switch on my dv6000 doesn't power the computer. I've taken the thing apart and checked/reseated the connections, and then shorted the power switch in case it was defective, but that didn't work either. I also removed all hardware (CD, wifi card, hard drive).
I figured the board was bad, but then I got it to turn on with the quickplay buttons for loading the HP os that just plays media. From there I can tell it to go to windows which successfully boots.
Has anyone had this problem? The exact p/n is EZ829AV which is NOT listed on the HP recall, although some of the symptoms are similar and its part of the dv6000 line. Any ideas of what to do?

In case anyone ends up here with the same issue, this link has the solution: the cable itself was bad.
