This sounds like a loose power connector on the system board. Users tend to wiggle the AC adapter out of the laptops, rather then pulling it straight out. It can be fixed, but the unit has to be dissasembled.

Hp pavilion g6 series


Have you tried another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs? Has the AC jack, in the laptop, been damaged due to pulling on the cord/charger? Have you tried with and without the battery? Does it power with the battery? Has there been ANY damage? If you remove the battery what does it do? Describe what happens, without battery, when you push the on/off button? Anything? Led blink? Fan spins?

No Power


Your laptop's power jack may be broken, which is why your laptop doesn't charge your battery at all, which is why it won't turn on now. I would take a look to make sure that the power supply is good, the battery is good, and then see if the power LED is even coming on when you plug the laptop to a power source.

Dc jack of labtop getting vey hot


A common weak spot on most laptops is the DC power jack. If someone trips on the wire while you have the power adaptor plugged into your laptop, chances are that the power jack will get damaged.
On most laptops the DC power jack is soldered directly to the motherboard and there are only three or four small pins holding it in place. Unfortunately that makes the power jack quite weak. Any sideways pulling of the DC power cord while attached to the laptop will usually dislodge at least one of these pins, breaking the solder around it. Modern laptops use quite a lot of power, from about 70W to 120W or even more. The bad electrical connection from the dislodged pin will cause sparks and heating that will eventually burn a hole through the motherboard and can even be a fire hazard.

The usual signs of that are:
  • The battery is not charging properly or stays at half charge despite that you have been using the power adaptor.
  • The screen flickers (the brightness is changing) while the power cord is plugged in. This is caused by the laptop switching between DC power (screen is brighter) and battery power (screen is dimmer).
  • The DC plug gets hot after a few minutes of use and may even smell of burning.
  • There are "scratching" sounds coming from the DC jack.
You need to take the unit apart and check/resolder the DC jack on the system board.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Sony laptop just turned off, it won't turn on. It was not hot.


The problem is your power supply charger, or the DC jack in the laptop, or bad battery. Remove the main battery and see if it will start up, if yes! the battery will need to be replaced, If no! plug charger in the computer and apply side-way pressure on the DC jack "not to hard" and press power repeatedly to see if you can start it, If yes! It is the DC jack that has broken free from the motherboard, If no! It is the power supply or motherboard. I suggest a computer tech

I have a asus m6000 laptop the power supply green led flickers when plug in and the power light. I tried different power supply and the same problem. Cheers Greg


Hello.

The most common reasons are the power adapter/cord and power jack.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Also, power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

Hope this helps.

I just replaced my ac adapter for my gateway lap top mx 6931 thinking that was the problem for why my screen flickers when i plug my ac adpater in to charge my battery. The battery wont charge unless i...


Chances are the power jack in the laptop that is to blame. It's common for the solder connections holding the jack to the motherboard to break because of the power plug flexing. One way to check is to keep the laptop steady and wiggle the power plug. If the power indicator flickers, that's what's wrong.

The good news is that this is usually repairable. The bad news is that not all service shops are willing to get into this level of repair. The motherboard needs to be removed from the computer so the connections can be repaired. Sometimes the board needs some mechanical repair as well, and occasionally the only way to fix the trouble is to replace the board. Most shops want to replace the motherboard right off.

Call around to shops in your area and see who's willing to try soldering the board. That is usually all that's needed to get you going again.

What is the ac polarity of a fujistsu lifebook c2330?


In household and commercial electronics 110-125 AC has no polarity unless there is a safety ground, in which case the green safety is connected to to the white wire via earth ground. Black is "hot" meaning if you touch it you will feel a shock because your body connects the circuit to ground. A laptop operates on DC power delivered from an AC-DC converter usually around 20 Volts dc and 3.5 Amps, and charges the battery as well. Polarity of your computer is positive tip meaning the fat part of the plug going into the jack is ground, or negative, and the center is positive. I hope this helps.

Battery: Fast Discharge, Slow Charge, Charging Lights Flicker, Runs off battery when plugged in


Problems sounds like a damaged power pin from pulling or jerking on the AC cable. I use a Cable Retention Device like the one in this video to keep from hurting the pin.
