Re: dell d610 latitude wont charge new battery
First off, do you have a way to check the output of the ac adapter to ensure it's putting out the correct current?
If you've done that and have a multimeter handy, you can remove the battery, system off, and check the charge pins for current/voltage. I believe one of the end pins is neg (ground) and at least one of the other pins should show 2.6-3.6V, as well as other various voltages. If you fail to get any response at the charger pins, we'll need to look at the board circuitry, assuming again that the ac adapter is operating properly.
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.
- Provide details, support with references or personal experience.

This is possibly an internal power Supply fault. take the battery out, plug in the adapter, IF the unit works now, you have A: A battery problem, or B: a charging circuit problem. If the unit still fails to work, the power supply in the PC has faulted. You need to get a "Quote: for a repair.
the charging system on your motherboard has blown a capacitor, if it is still under warenty you should call 1-800-456-3355. to get it repaired. if it's out of warenty, they can help you buy the right part
What needs to be done is the jack that your adaptor plugs into has solder points underneath it. All the solder points need to be resoldered to make sure that there are no cracks in the solder that are preventing the jack from charging your battery.
After this is done if the laptop still isn't charging then if you know for sure your using the correct ac adaptor with your laptop then at that point the moterboard would have to be replaced.
if it is the original battery, then the answer is buy a new battery. The average life of a portable battery is 300 to 500 discharge/recharge cycles. (1 to 2 years normally) If it is the original battery, then it is going on 5 years old and due for replacement
The battery light flashing RED/AMber is an indication of a failed battery.
Portable batteries have a life expectancy of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles. (roughly 18 months under normal use) After that, the charge life starts to drop off and eventually it will not hold a charge. Because of this, the battery is considered a consumable item and is only warranted for one year from the manufacturer.
Since all the systems listed in the post are D610's (4 to 5 years old) it is not surprising that the batteries are failing.
Dropped Puck, if you replace the battery and a new battery doesn't charge/run the system, then the charging circuit on the MB is failed.
