Question about HP Pavilion zt1135 Notebook

Power cuts out

The battery is completely dead and/or wont charge. So the battery has been removed. I think it will charge the battery if it stays on long enough. It worked fine plugged into the wall.
About 2 months ago, all of a sudden it quit. Worked with it, restarted it and it would run for 2 minutes and then completely loose power. Now it will stay running when it feels like it. But at any moment it cuts out. Some times it takes 5 - 6 times trying to start it before it decides to stay running for a bit. Sometimes when you wiggle the cord it cuts out, other times it doesnt. Could it be the power cord? Or the port that the power cord is plugged into?

    The battery trouble light usually didn't light up, but when it finally did, it charged for a bit and then ran for a very short time. The main trouble is not the battery.

    Has anyone had an adapter jack or power cord go bad?? Could replacing these fix this problem?

Try to check the adapter jack with a multitester and see if there is any voltage (take note of the polarity = red test prod goes to the inner part of the jack and the black test prod goes to the outer part) set your multimeter to 12v dc. then try to move the jack with the test prod connected in a swinging motion and see if the voltage drops and comes up. if it does then you have a defective jack.

Whenever you plug the adapter to your laptop, there is a small pilot light which lights up. if it doesn't light up that means your adapter is not charging your battery. if it does, then maybe you should change your battery. just a little tip : it would harm your pc if it often goes off unexpectedly or improperly shuts down.

2004 polaris ranger battery not staying charged when operating but when engine is off battery not affected cutting out and dying what could be the problem?


battery is being drained as it operates and not taking charge

check tightness and clean both terminals and cables

how old is the battery
may have a dead cell ..wont take charge

check the charging input to the battery with a volt meter
has to be above 12 volts
if lower or equal to 12 volts ...no good
the charging stator inside the engine needs testing or repair or replace

stator is another word for an alternator or a generator


why it plays up
best guess the ATV if a 12 volts system wont run on 11 volts

Craftsman power drill - batteries wont recharge. When I insert dead batteries into the charger The green light ''Fully charged'' comes on and stays on. The batteries do not charge as when they are inserted...


the battery's are most likely dead, (like the real dead) after many uses of rechargeable battery's they slow stop holding charge at all, make sure when you get a new rechargeable battery you fully charge it once and fully discharge it once this will increase batterys life time

Sansa wont cut on when i press the power button,


That could be for a large number of problems - either internal damage from water or being dropped, a completely dead battery, a batt that wont charge, or the software is caput. The only way you can fix it is to have it repaired or refurbished. Hope you have a warranty.

My blackjack wont charge or turn on


i think you should also change your battery so that you will know if the problem is with the charger of the battery.

or may be the charging pin is the problem or is broken, so you should try and check all.
