Battery charger wires-Can they be fixed?

Hi, My laptop was plugged into the charger. Somebody got tangled up in it and the wires that go from the computer to the charger box pulled apart. I'm no electrician but am wondering if there is a simple fix for the wires or if I have to spend 90.00 for a new one. Please help!

Re: Battery charger wires-Can they be fixed?

If you can clearly identify which wire is which, simply strip off a half inch or so from each broken end, twist together, then solder or simply wrap twist with electrical tape. repeat till all wires are connected then tape into a single bundle. Zaak

SOURCE: toshiba satellite m35 power issues

Hi !
While power off, disconnect the power adaptor.
Take off battery.

Plug the power adaptor back and try to start !
Is it running?

If yes, than the power adaptor is OK.

Now shut down and disconnect the power adaptor.
Put back your battery and start!
Leave it untill you 'empty' the battery.
Do not start your laptop.

Plug the power adaptor and do not start your laptop yet.
Is there a led idicator showing that the battery is charging ?
Does it shows when the battery is full charged (e.g. red/yellow=charging, to green/off charged)?
If not, leave it for at least 3 hours. After that, start your laptop (adaptor is plugged) and see if you still have an icon saying charging 99%.

If that is the case, then something is wrong with the battery.

Check your warranty, and replace it.
DO NOT OPEN the battery - nothing interesting you will find inside - nothing you can do !

SOURCE: Help with taking laptop apart

I have a toshiba satellite p105-s6024, and have had to take it apart multiple times. I have also taken apart the a105 series, and they both presented me with this problem. i finally found the solution when i took off the top panel that houses the power button (P105), or the panel with the speakers (A105). It can be snapped off with a small flat screwdriver at about 4-5 snap points along the border of the F-keys and the black trim of the top panel. under there you will find 3 screws for the keyboard, and four screws for the monitor hinges (2 per hinge). I hope this helps! if you need pics, i'll be taking it apart again soon, just e-mail me at

I have a Dell Precision M60 laptop and the charger adapter's led light is on when i plug it in, but the laptop won't turn on.I've replaced the battery and tried a different charger but that...

Unfortunately it sounds like you have an issue with your motherboard. If you remove the battery and just try to power on the laptop using the AC adapter and it still won't power on then it's probably the motherboard. The power supply circuit (where the AC adapter plugs into) for the motherboard is integrated into the motherboard.
Sorry. If it's still under warranty Dell will replace the motherboard.

My acer aspire 5738 charge only works when i toggle the charger head and if i move the laptop it stops charging, i bought the laptop second hand 2 months ago. thanks in advance for any advice given :-)

The DC jack, where you plug the power adapter cable, might be loose or defective, & needs to be either re-soldered or replaced.
In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard taken out. Also, the motherboard needs to be checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Alternatively, the charger wire just next to the charger head might be damaged.
Some wire has frayed apart and is making intermittent contact with itself. This could be fixed by either replacing the charger with a new one, or replacing the charger head & the few centimeters of the wire connecting it to the charger & re-soldering a new charger head instead.

Hi there
this is just a wild guess but i think that is you ac conector that is fry there is not fuses for that so the only option is to take it to a local repair guy an get it replace. depending where you are may run from $50 to $150 the repair since they have to take apart the laptop to change it the part is no more than $ 15 but labor is the costly here so maybe the docking station will be the best in your case .

Difficulty charging

Sounds like you have a bad internal dc jack. These go bad after so long. This is a normal problem on all laptops. Make sure it isn't your battery by seeing if you could use another same model battery. If having tried a new charger and a battery and the problem still persists then take it to your neighborhood computer shop or send it to me. I can replace the dc jack for you since you'd have to sodder a new one on.

This is a common problem, these adapter go faulty all the time, you need to test with a meter, or get a replacement Power Adapter... You need to take out battery and plug in adapter all laptops should work, with just the Power Adapter connected, if it doesn't then it is faulty.. well that OR laptop.. When you get a new charger you will need to leave charging at least overnight to recharge the battery.

My computer is not opening b/c of the battery chrager accepter from the computer side is not accepting the power properly

Ya laptops run out of charges within hours,so if you plug yours into the socket and get the power properly you can switch the laptop "ON" after the battery runs out.

first check the socket and do plug into another socket check whether its receiving else its the problem with the charger cuz even the other end of the charger may have the problem that we may not no .

There are two parts to charger.

1- Plug to charger box
2- Charger box to computer

the box is a power converter.are you getting power to the box ?

1)if not, as the BOX charger concerned you should give only to your company for service .

2)when the problem lies in the computer side can give it to service at local shop but my advice is to get a new charger.cuz this problem keep on bugging people.

Dell laptop charger

If the charger is older and since you saw the light go on then off again, it could just be the charger wires. Assuming your charger has a black box attached to it, try pushing the cord in towards the black box (usually the end leading to your laptop) . If that doesn't work, wiggle the cord in that area. If this works, your problem is simply the wire is worn out. You can fix it by exposing the inside wire where the bad connection is, snip it, reconnect and cover with electrical tape. I just did this to my sister's last week.

Acer aspire 1705 smi charger problem

The power supply is detecting a fault. You are probably correct thinking it has the wrong pinout.
Before you pull it apart, consider returning it to the seller if it was sold with incorrect information.
If you disassemble anything, your refund/replacement and warrantee will be voided.
