    thanks guys i think the problem is likely to be in the ac dc transformer lead. there is supposed to be a pin down inside the jack pin to laptop lead i think and it's not there. I'll look into that.Thanks Rory

    Are you sure the charger works? Does the laptop run without a battery?

Hey,
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.
Good luck

Dell lattitude d610 notebook wont power up. Got new battery yesterday, worked fine. Shut it down & now it wont power back up & yes the battery is fully charged.


Take the battery out (1 screw in the bottom of the case, then it pops out with the tab) and attach the power adapter, and see if it boots up now. If it does, you have a problem with your battery.

Did you have this problem before the new battery?

My Dell latitude d610 charging circuit not working on board


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.

Battery light blinking red even when charging


Looks like you need a new battery. Same thing happened with a DELL XPS, once the new battery was in place, all was fine.

Battery charging


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

My Dell Latitude D610 Battery Stopped Working


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.

Power for battery on DELL laptop Latitude D610 as posted FixYa


In the BIOS, does it show the battery and it's current state? As weird as it sounds, I've fixed an issue like this on a D600 by updating the BIOS to the most current level. Weird, but true.
