Question about Panasonic CF18DJAMXKM Notebook

Open Question

Panasonic cf-29 will not pwoer up

The computer was running in a docking station and when the person came back to it, it was off. No charging lights or any functions at all. Does this have a fuse of some type internally? I tried putting a battery from another unit in and it did not make a difference.

Thanks Chris

Panasonic CF-29 not charging, I've changed the battery and tried 3 different chargers but it still won't charge. What else can I try? I'm willing to go inside and even solder if I have to.


I would look at the charging port on the laptop itself. It may be bad or not fully attached to the motherboard. Does the charge indicator light come on? If not, try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol and then slowly moving the charging plug around where it connects to the laptop and see if the light comes on at all. If that doesn't work, you could disassemble the laptop and look at the connection/solder joints. This or similar video's may help in doing that - How to Remove Bottom Bezel on the Toughbook 29

    Cf-29 replace mouse pad


    Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 series of Notebook PC's, Service Manual,

    http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-panasonic

    Go to the line that starts with CF-29N3LGZBM, and CF-29NTQGZBM

    For the CF-29N3LGZBM the disassembly starts on Page 19, and for the CF-29NTQGZBM.
    I don't see the difference, but perhaps you will between the two.

    To me a CF-29 is a CF-29

    You disassemble from the Bottom up. Remove Base Enclosure,

    Remove Mousepad,

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=8BJRwBwCKhg&feature=endscreen

    A) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery

    B) USE an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
    (Electro Static Discharge)

    Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
    Wear an ESD wrist strap, and your laptop is safe from Static.
    (From you)

    Don't wear one, and use your laptop for an expensive paperweight.
    Average cost is $3 to $6. This is but one example,

    http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

    I connect to an unpainted surface, of an empty open desktop computer case. (I don't feel an Anti-Static Mat is warranted, and can explain)

    You can set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it.
    Or perhaps a large metal knickknack. (Unpainted)

    You can't discharge Static by touching the metal frame, of the laptop.
    Doesn't work that way. (ZZZZZzzzzap! Goodbye computer )

    C) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
    Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
    SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws!
    Advise do NOT mix them up.

    D) Take photos, or use a video cam; if available. Use good lighting.
    Make notes, and/or drawings if you wish.

    It's nice to have a Personal record, as well as a Service Manual, and pictorial information.
    It's nicer to have YOUR method YOU used, along with the above.

    Jus sayin'.

    No.1 Philips screwdriver

    Put everything back just LIKE it came out. Don't pinch any cables.

    Toughbook CF-29 computer died


    Torrential rain storm left out in it running? I'm sorry to say there is only one thing you can do for this laptop. "Do not turn it on at all again" Take the battery out of it and take it completely apart and use a blow dryer and dry everything out. "Everything" you may already be to late. Board may be shorted out and fried I hate to say it.
    So take it apart piece by piece and top case and bottom case and dry it completely out. So that there is nothing wet or moisture is dissipated and gone. That is the only thing you can do to salvage this machine other than a new board, rain and left running in the rain is pretty easy to figure out that you may have ruined your computer leaving it running in the rain. "Lets hope this will work for you" I would be pleased to know if it did solve this matter drying it completely out." Do not power it up again until this is finished. John

    I haven't played my wii in a while and have just plugged it all in and my controllers are not working. They don't seem to be charging in the docking station, their individual docks are not lighting up...


    Yes they should light up blue when they are charging.
    Double check and make sure your docking station is still plugged in and turned on.

    Most Docking stations are third party accessories, meaning, they were not manufactured by Nintendo. Some of them do not work very well.

    If all else fails, remove the rechargeable battery pack from the Wii Remote and put regular AA batteries inside of it. The Wii Remote should work just fine.

    Personally, I prefer to use rechargeable AA batteries rather than charging packs or docking stations. The charge packs/docking stations just never seem to work as well as they're supposed to. The rechargeable AA's work great and they're much more versatile since they're not limited to use in the Wii.

    My CF-29 has battery issues


    I'm just thinking that this might be caused by your power supply unit that came with the laptop although I'm not totally sure about this. When you are at home what I would recommend you do is remove the battery and just use the laptop whilst it's connected to the power supply as this preserves the life of the battery. Obviously charge the battery up and when it's full use the battery alone without the power supply unit. Carry out this test if you haven't done so already and connect the power supply but remove the battery and see if you face any problems. If it is the power supply then you may need to replace that. Good luck. Andrew
