Charger is plugged but in not charging


Hi,

I see that when the Adapter is plugged-in on the Laptop it does not charge, Have you tried a different AC Adapter to see if this is an Adapter issue or if this will be a hardware issue.

This concern can be an Adapter issue try a known good AC Adapter to see if the laptop will Charge or not if still it does not remove the battery and try the Known good AC Adapter to see if the Laptop will power ON using the known good adapter if it does then the issue can be the Battery or the Charger Board in the laptop now use the Old AC Adapter and see if the Laptop will as well turn ON with out the Battery if it does then the issue is either the Battery on the laptop or the charger board on the Laptop.

I hope this helps.

Tip

Troubleshooting Laptop Power Failures - The Battery


Symptom:

Battery does not charge while the laptop is plugged.


Diagnosis & Solution:

First thing is to make sure that there is AC power to the adapter. Some AC adapters have an indicator LED which glows when they are receiveing power from wall outlets. If your AC adapter does not have one, then make sure that the cord from the wall outlet to the AC adapter is firmly plugged into the AC adapter. Also make sure that the AC adapter is plugged into an operational wall outlet. You could also check the laptop's power indicator LED to verify whether it is receiving AC power from the wall outlet or not.

Next thing is to make sure that the AC adapter's connector tip is fully plugged into the power receptacle in the laptop. If this did not help, then the next step is to check & confirm that the AC adapter itself or the cable connecting it to the laptop has not failed. You can easily verify this by using a digital multimeter set to measure DC voltage. Use the digital multimeter's probes to measure the output voltage from the connector at the end of the adapter's cord to the laptop. Compare the reading you get to the nominal DC voltage required by the laptop, which you could find written on a label stick to the bottom of the laptop. The output DC voltage from the AC adapter should not read significantly less than the nominal DC voltage required by the laptop. If you find no or a significantly low output DC voltage from the AC adapter, then you will have to replace this AC adapter with a new one.

It is also necessary to make sure your AC adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the AC adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the AC adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the AC adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the AC adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the AC adapter's nominal amperage might be OK, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by using a good or new AC adapter, or by testing your laptop's AC adapter with another laptop.

If the previous tests confirmed that everything is OK so far but your laptop's battery is still not charging when the laptop is plugged, then there might be a possibility that the battery is not making good contact with the laptop's charging circuitry. To eliminate this possibility as a root cause of the battery not charging, turn off and unplug the laptop, take the battery off the laptop, and using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self. When done, put the battery back into the laptop, plug it, and turn it on. Check if the battery starts charging or not.

What if after all this the battery is still not charging? Well, we might then start to suspect that the battery itself is bad. This could be verified either by testing the battery in a similar laptop, or by swapping the battery with a new one or one which is known to be in a good working condition. If your battery does not charge when tested in the other laptop, then it is obvious that the battery is bad and has to be replaced. However, if your battery starts charging in the other laptop, then we are left with a couple possibilities: your laptop needs a BIOS update, or your laptop's charging circuitry is defective.

When laptop owners call tech support to report that their battery isn't charging or the life doesn't seem to be what it should, tech support will often tell them to download the latest BIOS. While it's marginally possible that the laptop shipped with a BIOS that has been improved in regards to battery management, the BIOS upgrade process, called flashing, is not reversible without special equipment. In other words, if something goes wrong, instead of having a laptop with a battery charging problem you'll have a collection of perfectly good laptop parts that won't do anything. Flashing the BIOS is a last resort we only recommend if you find references on the Internet that it fixed an identical charging problem for somebody else with your exact model.

If at last it turns out to be a defective charging circuitry, then you will definitely need to disassemble your laptop in order to gain access to its motherboard. The motherboard should then be checked for any burnt out components in the area surrounding the power receptacle. Burnt out components will need to be replaced, or if not possible, the motherboard will have to be replaced.

You may have a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

My Acer aspire 4935 is not recognizing the AC adapter. When ever I shutdown the system and connects the AC adapter, it works and the charging LED lights up. Once I press the power button to boot the...


Problem description:The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause:1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.

2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.

3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.

4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

Compaq Presario 1200 won't charge battery


dear N9YK

you can follow this

If you have a loose connection where you plug in the power on your laptop, or it works intermittently, you could have a bad dc jack. Symptoms
  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection
  • Broken or cracked dc jack
  • Laptop won't charge but worked on battery
  • Power LED and battery LED flicker when the adapter tip is moved
  • Battery won't charge
  • Sparks come out the back of the laptop
Why does this happen?
  • Flaw in manufacturer designs
  • Use of universal or non-original ac adapter
  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the ac adapter
  • Tripping on or pulling the ac adapter cord
or you can check your dc amper in your adaptor

oke



thx
