    Does the system start at all, or are you having a problem getting the thing to start regardless of how you try to power it?

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.

My Dell Lattitude 610 will not power on when the power button is depressed. The battery has been switched with a battery that was fully charged, still no sign of life. What can I do?


Remove the battery and power on the laptop with the AC adapter and see if it powers up. If not then you probably need to have the motherboard replaced.

Your battery could have given up.
Check the voltage coming out of the transformer. You should have 18-19 volts.
Either that or your motherboard charging circuit could have quit.

I have a DELL lattitude D610 and the power brick LED switches off whenever its plugged in. I bought another brick but it did the same. Doh! The laptop will function on its battery but the battery won't...


First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

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?

Flashing Lights On My Computer?


You've changed the batteries, but are they fully charged?

I usually leave my charger in all the time when using the laptop as Advent laptops have bad battery life.

Try charging it for max 8hours. If the problem stil persists,then i guess its something internally wrong with the laptop?

Or even, the charger wire may be a bit loose which is preventing it from charging the laptop either completly or partly.

Hope that helped

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.

Dell d610 latitude wont charge new 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
