Time for a trip to the repair depot - it is likely that the system power controller is fubar.

Did you get original HP charger and battery or cheap after market ones?

Re: hp pavillon g6 will not charge and displays plugged in, charging 80 80

got an original charger and the hp battery check software itself displays "status ok" for my battery.

Yet it won't run if not plugged in?

Current is one thing. Voltage is another. Did your repair guy also verify the voltage while charging the battery?
