Does the battery indicator on the bottom left hand corner of the screen flash when you charge it ?
If not it sounds like the batteries are over discarged.
Hold in the function button on the side as yoe plug the charger in.

Try plugging and unplugging the charger/ac adapter several times to see if the switch that is built into the jack might be stuck from dirt or corrosion.sometimes you can take a toothpick and get them unstuck too.

Ac keeps shutting


Hi,
Remove the battery and plug in the AC adapter. If you can not power on the laptop, your AC adapter has gone bad on you and will need to be replaced.

If it will turn on with the AC adapter, place the battery while the laptop is on. See if it registers the battery as charging in the task bar. If not, there may be something wrong with the battery or the components connecting to the battery within the laptop.
Also you can below steps to check:
1) take the battery out of your laptop and the laptop charger
2) plug your laptop charger in your laptop without the battery in it,
3) Try to turn it on the normal way:
If it turns on, then your battery has gone, (Its drained and run out of use like all batteries do)
if it stays off then its a charger problem
You would want to hope its a charger problem as they are cheap and easily replaceable
Hope i helped
I guess its a charger problem because its not turning on and the laptop automatically would use the charger as a main power supply if the battery doesn't work
and oh by the way
If the battery isn't in it, your laptop will act as a pc whereas if you plug the charger in it will work, but if you take it out while the laptop is on then it will go off instantly without a successful shutdown which could mean a loss of work

Rahul

Nikon s6300 won't turn on


Coolpix Cameras are tricky to use with chargers. I will assume your USB Charger EH-69P is 100 - 240V 50/60 Hz so it CAN work in many places around the world with an adapter. Do not go over 240V or you could damage it.

These cameras like to have the power supply connected when it is on to charge - meaning if you have it connected and you plug the charger in the wall it will NOT charge. So if you plug the charger in the wall first and then plug the cable in the camera it will work. The camera is actually ON when it charges and I never REMOVE the memory card when it is ON.

When you have a dead battery. Plug the camera in and make sure the ON LED lights and the Charge LED flashes. Then don't mess with it. Let it charge completely (Charge LED stops flashing and is OFF) and then unplug it. It will turn off. Then later you can turn it on.

I have had 4 pantech jest phones and it wont charge!!!! i had it plugged in then i thought it was charged fully cause the bars were full when i took it out.....BAM!!!! i shutt of!! im sick of it i had 4...


Make sure you're using the Pantech charger you got with your phone. I had this problem, got a new one, and realized I'd been using my old charger charger. Plugged it in with the wrong charger, it wouldn't work. Plugged it in with the Pantech charger, it started charging up and worked fine again.

Why does laptop stop working through adaptor after battery flat


Hi There,

Your battery charger/adapter connects to the DC Power Jack to power your laptop and charge the battery. Since the charger/adapter does 2 things, there are 2 "cells" inside it to do those 2 different things. It's not uncommon for one or the other (but not both) to fail. So, often just purchasing a new charger/adapter solves the problem you're having. It appears that yours is continuing to charge but has stopped "adapting" AC current to DC current to power the laptop directly.

My Gateway NV5386u battery died and the computer shutdown. When I tried plugging it in, it still would not turn on. The adapter part of the charger has a green light, indicating power is being applied, but...


Often when a battery is real flat, it hangs up the entire system. What you need to do, is remove the battery completely, as the laptop should be able to be powered by the AC adapter itself. You may find if that is the case that your battery has gone bad, and you will have to replace it. If your laptop, will NOT work from the AC adapter, then either the adapter is faulty, or there is an internal vault, in the Power conditioning circuitry inside the PC. Try another adapter, if still no go, then it is definitely an internal problem.

Dell Inspiron 6400 wont recognize new battery


Well often batteries from 3rd party manufacturer do not work in some laptops, see even the batteries have a "Chip" in them identifying them. Also sometimes these batteries are just no-good. or arrive flat, too flat to be charged up via the supplied charger. Anyway hopefully none of that applies and this will work. Now Turn PC OFF, put battery in unit. Now plug in wall unit, then plug into the PC, now leave the PC totally alone for at least 3 hours. Now the unit should work. Now how we tell where the problem lies is like this, Turn OFF, take out battery, now plug in the wall adapter, now the PC should work Fine like this. Now remove wall adapter, and insert the battery, the unit should go on this.. ONLY of course if charged. Now if when plugged in there are problems, it is more than likely, that indeed the battery is faulty, in some way.
These links below detail what steps to take to remedy any situation. The 2nd link is great.

Computer will not turn on


You need to charge a battery at least overnight 8 hours for a real flat battery. During this time it must NOT be used at all. When you get it that flat, it will take some time to "Come Back" from flat. I suspect you just need to be more patient and leave on charger, when using it for at least a couple of days while working on it. After the 8 hour initial charge.

Screen went black


That is a low battery warning icon. Check first the DC adapter/charger output. It might be not working so the battery is drained. Then the player will not turn on. The player will still turn on even the battery is dead when plugged into an outlet.
