Charger overheating and melting the tip, Irregular charging

Hi,

Every time I put my laptop on charge the charger gets extremely hot and the nodule/tip that connects to the laptop is getting burnt. Also because of this I have to fiddle around with the nodule/tip to get it to charge. When it does start charging it will charge for a second then stop, then charge again and stop and so on.
Please help.
What am I to do.
Your assistance will be greatly appreciated

First, Check for damage (frays, tears, melting, or cracks in/on the insulation) on the power unit from tip to wall socket. If all looks well then I would check the voltage on the power unit by using a voltmeter. If it's within manufacturer printings on the box, then you might have a possible short.

Hope this helps.

many thing made that happened, but the important thing is to check whether ur charger gives a 19V-21V or higher!, u can use a multimeter, or voltmeter.. if OK check if there is a space between the laptops connector nd its charging port . because the connector's metal can get hot if it's not connected as well...

GOOD LUCK

Burning


The motherboard in your laptop is overheating badly if its melting chargers but more importantly its not charging at times as well. Both symptoms relate to a bad motherboard. Try getting it replaced if you can.

1. buy some transfer compound
2. replace the fan and heatsink over the compud do not spread compound with finger.
3. Reset the unit by takeing out the battery and unplugging it from AC source then after a few min. plug everything back in.
4. if that does not work you may have a overheated cpu and this would need to be repaired at this point seeing that the compd was melted off.

The socket where you plug the charger into the laptop is loose and now will not charge. where can i send it to be fixed and how much will it cost? I am in Niagara falls, ONtario


Hi
This is typically caused by tension on the plug. For instance, you allow the charger to dangle and hang on the plug. This causes poor contact and the socket gets hot and melts.
If you go to the manufacturers they will charge you for a new mainboard. Your best bet is to take it into a local TV/Hi-Fi repair shop and get a quote.

Overheating presario 2100 charging port


hi,
 all laptops heat up rapidly if u place it on a flat surface...so when u place the laptop, keep a small support( like tv remote, ac remote, folded book) anythin like that, so that there is free ventilation of air beneath the laptop....dis might solve ur problem


good luck
