Usually, red LED light on Samsung laptop lights when it is sourced with power using an adapter to charge the laptop battery. Thus, if you are getting a red light when attempting to charge your laptop battery via an adapter, it is normal. If not, we request you to share with us your laptop model and the exact location of the red light on your laptop to address your issue better.
Try removing your battery pack. Then connect the power adaptor (even without the battery) and connect is directly to the power outlet. If it powers up, then the battery pack might be defective or totally drained.
If the battery is just totally drained, simply place the battery to the laptop. Do not turn the laptop on. Plug the power adaptor to the laptop and plug it to the power source. If you see that the charging LED is blinking in your laptop, then just leave it charging up to 5 to 8 hours.
Never use a laptop on battery mode while it is plugged in to a power source. This is the number 1 reason why laptop batteries don't last longer.
Finally I got it working again, after a lot of try's (just put the plug in for a few hours) the led was red again for a brief moment, then it starting to flash orange again.
I looked it up on a lot of forums, the problem is that the (old) bios doesn't charge the batery anymore when it is deeply discharged.
So I put the plug in and out for about 10-15 times , and the brief moment it is not flashing it's still charging. Until it is not deeply discharged anymore and then it is charging the batery like it did before.
But I still don't understand why it is not working without the batery inserted ??
the battery LED is indicating an internal battery failure. While the battery may still work, the LED indication will not change until you replace the failing battery. It can be an indication of a Failed Cell, low voltage etc. Something in the battery is no longer meeting specification and that triggers the LED indication.
Seeing as you notice that your battery life is half, this most likely means your battery is no longer able to hold a charge, or a full charge. It could also mean the battery is defective. If your laptop is still under warranty, the manufacturer may replace it. If not, you'll have to buy a new battery, unless you always keep it plugged in anyways.
Change your AC charger. It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows
tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery
level drops by about 1% every few hours" That's the reason why: "battery has completely died" If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on.
This is usually caused by a bad battery. Sounds like both batteries are not working properly. They may still hold some charge, but they are wearing out. After all, they are batteries, and bateries wear out. Keep in mind that some batteries are better than others, even though they may be the same brand, some will hold a charge longer, and some wear out faster. I'm on my second new battery in a year and a half on my Dell, the first held a great charge but wore out after approx 8 months, the one I'm using now still charges fine but only last about an hour and 15 mins.
I would call the manufacturer. Depending on your battery and what you do on it, that may be all of the time you get out of your battery. I have a small laptop and even on a full charge, I can only get like 2-3 hours of use.
