The battery will not charge. xt512 will not boot up, with cord

The battery is not holding a charge, and even with the AC cord plugged in, my laptop will not boot up, or if it does, it is only for a second before it turns off

    The power cord is showing green, which indicates the cord is working ok... I know that rechargeable batteries (such as in our cell phones) need to be replaced. Sorry for my ignorance, but does this apply to laptop batteries as well?

    Do laptop batteries need to be replaced? This one is two years old.

Welcome to Fixya-

it sounds like you a faulty battery. they do have a shelf life of about two years may be a little longer. But first i would make sure the two piece of teh cord are properly connected and that the cord is pushed in all way into the wall. If the green light come on then there isn't anything wrong with your power supply or cord. The problem will be in the battery and I wold replace. hope this helps you and thank you for using premium fixya.com

thanks Tom

Hi,
the problem is most likely not in the battery or the ac adapter, but I do suggest that you inspect the ac cable mine was loose from the adapter and it didn't actually power the laptop.
Suggest you possibly try another charger and if the laptop is under warranty call your dealer for repairs. Warranty will take care of it.

    Yes they eventually need to be replaced, but if your laptop doesn't start up with only AC power then there another problem not the battery, hear any beeps?

How old is the battery? They have a finite lifespan. It may just be time for a replacement.

    If your laptop's battery is not lasting as long as you feel it should the issue may be that the battery is malfunctioning or
    it may be another component of your laptop that is not charging the
    battery properly. Sometimes the power adapter pieces could become
    damaged and as such not charge the battery properly. Or that the
    internal wiring of your laptop could be damaged and not supplying the
    power to the battery properly to charge it.

    Check for warranty statements. Depending of brand, warranty for battery
    is 6...12 month. If battery is under warranty, call in support centre
    of brand.

Dell latitude runs but does not boot up


Remove battery + power cord from AC adapter. Wait 10 minutes. Plug in only the power cord. Power-on the laptop.

If laptop starts correctly, plug in battery while it is up using the adapter. Leave on for battery to recharge.

I would try the following steps, then contact HP (if these don't work, chances are it's hardware related).
1) Remove the battery and power cable. 2) Hold down the power button for 3 seconds. 3) Reattach the power cable and battery. 4) Try to boot again.

Hello,

First of all, disconnect your battery from back of the

laptop, then try and get a friend or a technician that

uses the same type of laptop, and try to swap the

battery just to check whether it works and charges

it properly. Also do the same thing with the

Adapter/Charger and charge it with it.

This is because, there are two diagnostic possibilities

here:

1.) It is either the battery that you bought is not good

and you need to return it quickly before its too late

or;

2.) The charger that you are using is bad, or not

supplying enough current to charge the battery

cells...and this might even damage the battery after

a while, or make the battery not to charge to its full

capacity and as well discharge quickly.

Try this out and let me know how it goes.

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck and thanks for using fixya.

As others have said, the most common fault with the ZV series is the power socket. However, you mentioned the Lightning Bolt. This indicates that the battery is being charged and it should go out as soon as the battery is fully charged.

If the Lightning Bolt flashes on and off regularly, especially when the power cable is moved, then the socket is at fault and needs replacing.

You can check to see if the battery is receiving a charge by doing the following

1. Right Click the Desktop
2. Click Properties
3. Click the Screen Saver tab
4. Click the Power button
5. Click the Power Meter tab

This will tell you the computer's current power source and whether the battery is charging.

I have replaced several of these sockets on ZV5000s and I'm sure the 6000 will be similar. I would not recommend this job for anyone without technical knowledge, despite some of the websites that say you can do it yourself. You will need to strip the entire laptop down and all but remove the motherboard before the socket can be replaced.

Hope this helps

HP Pavilion Laptop zv5000 wont power on. NOT power cord problem.


I think your motherboard has gone bad, even though you hear a fan working, its just on a hot wire on the motherboard.

Laptop will not power up with Adapter


It sounds like there is a problem with your motherboard. You would have to take it someplace to run diagnostics on it. It may be time for a new laptop

Try this:

With the AC adapter and battery installed and it will not power up remove the adapter and the battery. Then plug in the
AC adapter after both have been removed for 30 seconds and let the laptop set for 30 seconds and then unplug the AC adapter and then slide in the batter within 15 seconds and try to start the laptop.
