    Hi

    No power to the laptop when disconnected from the mains.

    Laptop used as desk top, never really run on battery power.

    Indicator has been flickering for a few weeks +/- amber / blue.

    Does this mean the battery is useless?

    Thanks for your response

When connected to AC adapter the amber light for battery doesnt change to blue even after full charge.


Hello.

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

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty. If the battery indicator flashes amber or is a steady amber, the
battery will probably needs to be replaced, since it's not charging fully.

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.

Hope this helps.

The battery indicator of my Inspiron 1420 flashes amber and blue indicating that the battery is too hot to charge. Obviously the cooling fan is stuck. can anyone help me where I can buy a replacement...


It is not obvious that the cooling fan is stuck. If the battery flashes amber, amber,amber, amber, blue then repeats, the battery has an internal failure and needs to be replaced.
The cooling fan only cools the CPU and the graphics, not the battery.

When i plug in my dell studio 1737 in i get a blue light then 4 amber blinks and then a blue light. Does anyone know what this might be


Most likely the battery is failing. Boot to BIOS (F2) most Dell Systems have a battery health indication there.

Bettery problem


Hi,


It could be the battery is already degraded. If the battery is more than 2 yrs. old you could check the battery health meter and see if you need to replace it. Hope this helps

The blue & 3 amber light flashing on the battery indicator


The battery has an internal failure. While it may still run the system, the only way to stop the LED indication is to replace the battery.

I've a dell inspiron 1521 battery problem


The battery has an internal failure (Most likely a bad cell) While the battery works, the resolution for the LED indication is to replace the battery. Batteries are a consumable item and generally, batteries have a life of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before replacement is necessary.

1721 Inspiron shows flashing amber, three times, then blue.


The cells in the battery are starting to go bad which is why the light is blinking the way it is.

Once you get a new battery put in there the light will stay blue instead of flashing amber.

Problem with extended battery


LED indicator for your laptop model
Steady Blue = Battery charged and AC adapter plugged in
Amber = Battery charging and AC adapter plugged in
Slow Amber Flash = <10% battery life
Fast amber flash = 3% remaining TPC will automatically go into hibernate
Slow flashing amber Adapter plugged in = Overheat condition

Do you have a multimeter to test the battery that you are using? check the output current of the battery.
