Lg 0168 charging problem


Laptop ???
Take the battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works.
If it works, the battery may be the problem.
Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop.
Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity.
If that light isn't on, try a different outlet.
Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it.
If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing.
Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.

Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery.
Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection.
Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement.
Fix a Broken Laptop Charger
If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge.
You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly.
When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop.
It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling.
If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power.
This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury.
A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible.
Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open.
The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't.
Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors.
Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery.
Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it.
See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed.
If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced.
If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number.
Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay.
If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems.

My Laptop charger is not working


Srivastav,What you have described indicates that the charger has gone. And unfortunately these things can not be repaired. In the past two months I have had to replace three chargers due to spikes or high voltage. Too bad. So, please replace the charger and see your laptop running again. And use a good voltage stabilizer that has cuts high voltage.

My env2 wont charge. whenever i plug it in, the battery stays the same. what do i do?


This seems to be a common problem for the env2. If you hold your charger a certain way in the phone does it charger? Is the charger port broken or damaged?

If so the easiest workaround is to get an external battery charger and extra battery to charge the phone.

Check out the following link for information on the battery charger and other options for the env2 charge issue.

Lg prob


it is better way if you have warranty then make use of it ...

if not if you are good at opening then open it and just have a look near port ... if you have the broken piece join it by soldering...

if you dont have that broken piece then just take two small wires an d carefully identify the positive and negative in the circuit board & solder it near the port which is used for charging and then cut the pin of the charger and connect the positive & negative correctly to those wires whenever you want to charge ....

else visit the technician he will replace if the spare part of it is available ..

this doesnot charge too much it is affordable so i suggest you to visit the technician....
