Battery is not charging

I have a ZD8350LA ,some days ago the battery stopped charging and the indicator led blinks every time the battery is in the device, my computer is only 10 months old, can it be a configuration problem on the motherboard? or the battery has broke down?

    HP zd8205us. I bought a new power cord AND a new battery, no change. After charged, the system shows battery at 100%, but if unplugged, will shut off after about 1 min. If I turn on while unplugged, it will almost make it past POST.

    What a shame for such an expensive laptop.

  • winsalm Apr 23, 2008

    I have an HP zd8000 with a similar issue. The battery would not charge so I bought a new battery but it still will not work. The power shows at 0%. If I am using the laptop with the cord and unplug it while it is on it will operate for about 30 seconds before dying. The battery has been checked and is fine. Any ideas?

    I have this problem now with a Dell Latitude. But a few years ago I had a Compaq with the same problem, and there was some kind of charging device inside -- after the ac cord -- that went. They replaced the charger and away I went. No problem in 6 years since. But aparently the orange light flashing on the Dell means the battery is dead. Personally, with all these Dell battery problems, I'm starting to believe Dell is ****.

From HP website- worked immediately for me.
This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with Windows Vista. Understanding battery charging issues If the notebook battery is not charging or the notebook does not indicate that the battery is charging, the most likely scenario is that the battery itself is operating correctly, but its power management software may have become corrupt. In order to correct the problem, you will need to uninstall and reinstall the power management software by using the Device Manager. This document will explain how to uninstall and reinstall the ACPI Battery listings in Windows Vista, as well as how to obtain and install updated BIOS files, if needed to correct other battery issues. Uninstalling and reinstalling power management software in Windows Vista In order to correct problems with the battery's power management software, follow the steps below.

  1. Click Start and type device in the search field, then select Device Manager .
  2. Expand the Batteries category.
  3. Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall . WARNING: Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver.
  4. On the Device Manager taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes Battery is not charging - c01176420.gif . Alternately, select Action > Scan for hardware changes .
Windows will scan your computer for hardware that doesn't have drivers installed, and will install the drivers needed to manage your battery's power. The notebook should now indicate that the battery is charging.

It could be the either the battery or the AC/Adapter. Due to the Sony battery situation, HP will need to see if your battery is one of the ones that will need to be recalled. http://bpr.hpordercenter.com/ebpr/landingpage.aspx The AC Adapter may also be defective and not charging your battery. Is the indicator light on the adapter turned on? Can you get another AC adapter to test out? If not, you can order another one from here: http://www.comptick.com/

I had bought a second battery for my HP dv6000 after it had got to 0% not charging and a new battery did the same thing in a couple months.

Yesterday, I noticed I had got up to 1% not charging and found that it was shutting down PC with AC cord in and battery in, take out battery, put it back in. Did it 2 times and second time charge light came on steady and it charged. Seems like when powered down, the charger has a chance of working when putting a battery back in with the power connected as it takes a number of seconds to react with the charger light. Taking battery in and out when powered on doesn't seem to help.

Wonder if it letting it get down to 0% that causes the trouble? Also as a precaution, I remove the baterry after I power it down.

But I see some of you have gotten stuck at other power levels, so trying powering it down with AC adapater and battery in, remove battery and then put in back in, see if charge light will come on steady.

The Hp battery check is junk always recommending to "calibrate" the battery. Also tried re-installing ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery, no change.

3 Cheers for trial and error! HP laptops have problems with their charger systems!

I have the same problem with our HP pavilion dv6000. You might want to try a BIOS update. That helped me... but for only two weeks after which the problem returned. It may be a permanent fix for others... check hp.com

I opened up the adaptor and found that they didn't solder a contact point to the copper plate. I use a clamp from the outside to force that contact and it works now. I also have that battery problem. Its spoilt

I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


Maybe your battery is totally drained.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

Battery is not charging


Portable batteries are a consumable item and have an average lifespan of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles.

If the computer is only 10 months old, contact HP for a replacement after following the instructions for the HP Battery Check HERE

Digimax i5 problem charging battery


Hello,
■ Charging LED 


Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged
Red LED is blinking = Charging error
 Green LED is on = Charging is complete


● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.


If the charging LED doesn't turn to green could mean a signal that the battery is bad or can't charge 100% anymore = too old, needs a new battery. Hope this helps.

Charger red lite flashing. Camera comes on for one second and shuts off


Hello,
Here's a copy from the owners manual:
■ Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged 
Red LED is blinking = Charging error 
Green LED is on = Carging is complete


● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.


Another charging error is when the batteries are so depleted, they won't charge up to 100% anymore = red light doesn't go out and remains on for too long, means get a new battery.

Same Problem


Hello, it was: 
■ Charging LEDCharging LED
 Red LED is on = Being charged
Red LED is blinking = Charging error 
Green LED is on = Charging is complete


● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.


Or if the red LED remains on without turning green could mean a bad battery that no longer charges to 100% - get a new battery. Hope this helps

WON"T WORK


sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)

Battery is not charging


Let the battery go all the way dead. You may have to adjust the settings in your bios so that the laptop will stay on until the battery goes completely dead. Then charge the battery. Do this a few times if it does not fix the problem you do need a new battery.
