I f this is a laptop, what usually happens is that the connector on the system board is loose. And it will need service. Luckily it is in warranty.To keep this from happening again, pull the ac adapter straight in and put it staright in without wiggling it in/out.

Desktop do not have ac adapters. If it is a desktop, your power supply probably needs replacing.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

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.

Laptop is turning on and off


Remove the AC adapter (Charger)

PROPER method is to disconnect the power cord of the AC adapter, from power; THEN unplug the AC adapter from the laptop.

Same thing in reverse to plug the AC adapter back in.
AC adapter is plugged into laptop, THEN AC adapter is plugged into power.

Unplugging the AC adapter from the laptop, while being plugged into power; can cause a Voltage Spike.

You may get away with it for years, and several laptops; and have no problems.

However it only takes ONCE, to fry out the SMD fuses, Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors, and Power MOSFET's, on the laptop motherboard's DC to DC circuit.

Jus sayin'.

Moving on........

AC adapter removed, remove the Battery.
Press the Power On button in, and hold in for a count of 10 seconds.
Let go.
Do this procedure 2 more times.

(Draining residual power)

Reinstall the Battery. Attach the AC adapter, plug AC adapter into power. Let the Battery charge 24 hours.
Then turn the laptop on, and tell me what happened.

Dell x200, no power at all.


By no power you mean the computer is not turning on right?

If that is the case there are just a few things you can check,

1. Check the adapter if it is working fine the LED on the adapter should be lit on when you plug it in the laptop.

2. Check the port where you plug in the ac adapter.
Make sure that the port in the back of the laptop is not damaged.

3.Check the wirings of the ac adapter.
Make sure there not damage.

4. After the 3 steps and you're sure it's a good adapter try to turn on computer. If not.
The best thing to do is to use another working adapter or if you have another laptop try to use the adapter you're using to that laptop and if it is working
then you have a problem.

5.If it ends up that the ac adapter is working including your battery. Then to fix your problem you'll need to replace the motherboard of that computer.

Hope this helps!

Ac adapter dont work it isnt the laptop itselfs its the ac adapte


Check your mains adapter plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
The adapter is a sealed unit and is very difficult to open and repair. Usually you need to replace the power adapter.

Charger isnt recognized


Dell portables use a sensing wire in the barrel of the adapter plug to determine the wattage of the ac adapter. If that fine wire in the center of the plug is bent or broken, the system cannot ID the adapter and the battery charger is disabled.
SO, first try a known good AC adapter for a D-Series Dell (You might be able to check with Geek Squad at a local Best Buy if you don'e have access to another ac adapter) If a known good ac adapter works, then replace the ac adapter.
If a known good AC adapter does the same thing then the fault is in the charging circuit of the motherboard and the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Wii console isnt working


Have you tired resetting the AC adapter? If not, then try this:


  1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, memory cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, hookup cables, the AC Adapter, and Sensor Bar) from the outlet and Wii.
  2. Let the system rest for about 90 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that controller cords, AC Adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
  3. After the 90 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. Check to see if the power light on the Power button comes on.

Garmin 1412, wont run on battery power, DC only. Need info on maybe a full reset whether to return as defective


I found there are select 120v AC adapters that will work on Magellan GPS. When a working 120v or 12v adapter to mini USB adapter is plugged into the unit, the battery bars will be 'scrolling' and therefore charging.

When your adapter, or even USB cable from your computer, is plugged into the GPS unit, and the battery goes to FULL, it is NOT CHARGING. The battery bars must be SCROLLING for the unit to charge. In this case, get a different adapter until it works.

Acer 4520 light going dim


Normally the way it works is if you plug in your AC Adapter to a laptop the computer screen will Brighten up since its no longer running off of battery and is actually charging . The reason why it should go dim is when you unplug the Ac adapter it goes dim to save battery life and last longer. If you are getting a really dim you can check and make sure that the Ac adapter jack on the adapter or motherboard isnt loose and it could be having contact to the unit and be loose inside and every small movement causes it not to charge / charge in and out and would cause this Dim effect. Again this depends on how old the computer is and I dont really think its the LCD or backlight going bad but you can try to mess with the screen brightness and If im not mistaken on that model it should be the FN key and the Right > and Left < Key for lower and higher brightness. Give that a try and check the adapter connection and you can pin point the issue . Hopefully it doesnt come worst to worst which could be a bad LCD going bad or damaged lcd internal cable. Hope my answer helped guide you closer to a solution.
