The problem could also be the power cord. A friend of mine was complaining her HP CQ60 wouldn't charge unless she jiggled the plug connection at the laptop. She thought it was the battery and ordered another one but found it was still not charging correctly. I looked at it and confirmed that the cord had one loose connection at the barrel plug.

If it is the power cord you could purchase a new one or repair it like I did below:

The cord can be fixed by slicing a concentric circle around the plug about a 1/2 inch down from the rubber end and then peeling it off to expose the two wires. I found one wire broken from the solder joint and thus not getting a good connection. I drilled a small hole into the metal barrel to make a better contact and then re-soldered the wire into the hole. I then super glued the concentric section I sliced off and then put a piece of 1/2" 2:1 heat shrink tubing ($1.25 on eBay) around it and shrank it around the repair. It's fixed and due to the black heat shrink tubing, you can barely tell it was repaired. Hope this helps!

Battery Icon reads. Plugged in but not charging. What's the fix?


Confirm that the charger is plugged into the electrical wall socket and the light on the charging unit is on. Ensura all connections are secure and not loose.
  1. If all is in order and the laptop is still not charging, the battery OR the charger may be defective.
  2. Shut off the computer.
  3. Remove the battery for 10 seconds
  4. Reinstall it.
  5. Try charging it with the charger again. If that works, good. If not, call customer support.

My hp mini 1000 will not turn on. When I plug it in the light on the side will not say it is charging. It will not charge.


Hi,

Here are some steps that can help you resolve the issue.

First, try removing the ac adapater and the battery and press and hold the power button for about 10-15 secs to remove the flea power. Then try to deattached the power cable and the power brick and attach it again properly, plug it to the computer without the battery and try to turn on the computer. If still the same problem try a good known power socket, if your using power strip try to plug it directly to the wall socket. If nothing works, try a good known ac adapter, or try you ac adapter to a good known working computer. If a good known ac adapter didnt work, contact HP as this is a power supply issue on the computer (power supply are mostly attached to motherboard for portables) contact HP to check your warranty and have it serviced. If the good known ac adapter works, contact HP to check the warranty and have the AC adapater replace or simply replace the ac adapter.

I hope this will be able to help you.

Thank you for choosing Fixya.

Why would the plug melt on an Acer 5315?


Plugs melt when the connections 'short circuit'.
This means the positive and negative energy paths are touching.
Even the smallest AAA or 9V battery will get really warm if your connect the terminals together, and the power supply of a laptop computer pushes more more power (amps) than a little battery.
If it is indeed the power connection of your laptop has some melting damage, I must recommend you have your laptop and its power supply serviced or replaced, and to not plug it into the wall until you do. Fires have started by malfunctioning/damaged cameras and computers.

I hope that helps.

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.

Not charging


which green light?

light from the ac power adapter or the light from the battery?

if ac power adapter you are referring to try a diff power wall socket if ac power adapter still off then replace ac power adapter alone.

if battery light is off but the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone try updating the laptop BIOS.

if ac adapter light turns off when it plug to the laptop replace motherboard.

Acer aspire 3680 laptop will not charge while plugged in wall


It appears that you have faulty laptop power connector socket.
This is why it appears to work sometimes when you plug the connector into the laptop in some direction.
To confirm this, wriggle the connector while you look at the charge light on the laptop, if it blinks as you wriggle it then the power socket is either faulty or just needs resoldering so it will make proper electrical contact.
You can get a compute techo to do this or you can do it yourself but it requires dismantling the laptop completely to get at this power socket.

Want stay charged


Sounds like a bad battery cause its not keeping a charge. Try a new or known good battery and see if it will charge and then unplug the ac adaptor to see if the laptop stays on.

If the laptop stays on with a different battery charged then your old battery is bad. If your laptop doesn't stay on with a known good or new charged battery without the ac adaptor hooked up then its a bad motherboard.
