Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

Dell Inspiron 6400 no DC

Hi there.
I was wondering if anybody can help me.I accidentally swapped plus and minus when I fixed my DC jack and blew up sth on my motherboard.Now It won't register the adpater at all.I found that one of tha transistors are faulty
2N70002 but I can't get it anywhere so I tried to replace it with some other but as soon as I plug the adapter in the mosfet blows up again.So either the one I have it's not the right one or there is some more damage done.
Would anyone had a circuit diagram???I'll pay 50$ on yor account if I fix it:-)
thank you

If you are really ready to pay, I suggest that you refer to Dell center closest to you. Laptops inner parts are very sensitive and should never be modified by a non-expert. Not to mention that you can't replace a transistor on the motherboard with just any other one, or else it would cause much damage, which ,I afraid, is already done in your case.

Where is the michrophone on del inspiron 6400?


Hello,

Unfortunately the Dell Inspiron 6400 is not equipped with a built in microphone.

You can use an external microphone having a 3.5mm jack by connecting it to the microphone connector found on the right side of the laptop.

Hope to have helped you.

Power jack replacement Dell Inspiron 6400


When you press the power button, no lights, fans, beeps, anything?

Is the power jack moving around? If not, I would check the charger and cord to make sure power is getting through to the plug that goes into the jack.

Dc jack broke. tech guy replaced but now none of my 3 power bricks will charge the battery. they all give power to run laptop but do not charge battery. when boot up get error message saying I connected an...


It is possible that it could be a bad solder joint. It could also be that the connector is a different one. Some laptops use a dual voltage power structure. On the Inspiron E1505 (same as the 6400) I have it requires the dual voltage power. This is where the outside of the plug is the ground and the inside of the plug is one voltage and the center pin is yet another voltage. In this case, (if I remember correctly) the inside of the plug is like 19.5 volts and the center pin is like 9 volts. The inside of the plug supplies the power to the laptop and charging circuit and the center pin tells the laptop that the power adapter is plugged in and should start charging. If the laptop recognizes the Vostro power supply then this is a good possibility. Either way, it is worth getting it checked out. The last thing you want to do is burn out the charge circuit on the motherboard by having the incorrect power supply plugged in to it. It may work for a while or it may work forever but you never know.

Dell inspiron 9300 doesn't charges i doubt its dc jack is broken , wanna fix it


If it works from DC jack try to change the battery first, for example to the same battery from another comp. If DC jack is broken and laptop don't works from wall outlet better change the jack in service center. Disassembling Dell is hard work... Cheers.

The little green light on charger goes off when i plug it into Dell Inspiron 6400, the charger works fine


Unplug the battery from the laptop and then plug the AC adaptor into the laptop. If the green light still goes off then your motherboard is shorting out the adaptor and the motherboard needs to be replaced.

Dell Inspiron 1505; Battery does not charge; DC jack is loose..


The loose connection for the AC adapter means the motherboard needs to be replaced or the AC adapter jack on the motherboard needs to be replaced. (With Labor, it is about the same cost to buy a new motherboard as it is to have the old one fixed)

Motherboards are available on EBay for around $100
