Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
This is not for merka65, but for jodha who said his D610 shorts out his charger. I just fixed a D610 motherboard that would short out the charger and make its green light go out. I was able to track down the problem to a shorted monolithic capacitor on the motherboard. I replaced it and the problem was solved. Prior to the fix this motherboard would run on a charged battery. Now it runs on the charger and charges the battery.
It wasn't easy to track it down without a schematic. Took about an hour or detective work with a bench power supply to force a little voltage in and look for a hot component.
I could do more component repairs if I had schematics but Dell apparently doesn't release them. Very frustrating!!!!

Laptops are notorious for having the adapter plug come loose from the motherboard although, most laptops will power off of the battery if this happens (if the battery has a good charge). Some laptops have a DC power board that can burn out. Or in some cases, It can be the power button bar. If you are not comfortable trying to repair it yourself, I suggest taking it to a reputable repair shop but it will probably cost you quite a bit to get it fixed. If you know someone who does this type of repair you might check with them.
