Dell Inspiron 1200 Charging Problem

Won't recharge when charge plugs in. Charger and battery are good. Charges very intermittently. Checked motherboard for cracks and bad solder joints. Changed jack. Still won't work. Charger is fine, battery is fine. Just won't charge.

Can I power the thing with voltage to both sides of the mother board?

Was the battery a Dell replacement? or was it a Chinese replacement battery?
Your charging circuit may have been damaged.

I Have a 9100 xps with a new battery and it only charges to 30%


I would advice you to try another Charger first.
This is because I have seen a case like that where we thought it was the battery that was faulty until we just decided to try a friend's charger instead...and you know what? It gave us 2hrs 45 minutes 100% Full-Bar Battery life.
So please try and check it with another charger first.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

Dell Inspiron 8200 Battery


I assume that you have your charger plugged in as long as you use the laptop...

There are very minimal chances o the battery having been damaged, since the casing on the inspiron 8200 is quite sturdy.. i suggest you get the charge socket (the socket that leads to the main wall electricity outlet) from a qualified technician...

Inspiron 1200 battery light continually flashing orange


If your battery LED flashes or is solid Yellow or Amber color, this usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

Sounds like you have a bad Stick of ram.If you have 2 sticks remove one then try to load the operating system.If that doesnt work replace it with the other one and try to boot.If you are not sure what ram is leave a comment and I will explain.If neither work buy a new stick of ram and that should take care of your problem.Rate me if this works!GOOD LUCK!

My c600 is not puttin power in battery


if its the battery with a press button that lights up 5 green lights.. if u hold it for about 6 seconds it should light up all or some in a row like 000.. ( depends on charge it has) after 6 seconds none should flash , they should turn off . if any do flash or led green are missing in between its likely a bad battery.
