Charging Problems with FUJITSU SIEMENS AMILO PRO V2055
My laptop recently stopped running from the mains power, and hence did not charge the battery. It would still work whilst the battery had power but when the charger was plugged in, the battery wqould not charge and the laptop would continue to run only from the battery power.
I know the charger is fine but have bgeen told it could either be the motherboard connection from the charger socket or the battery itself. Apparently when the battery reaches a certain age, it no longer charges. This would explain why it does not charge but would the laptop not run off the mains power even in this case. Surely even if the battery would no longer charge, the laptop would draw power from the mains??? as apposed to the battery taking mains power then the laptop working from the battery (indirectly from the mains).
Does anyone know if this laptop can run without a battery connected to it using the charger cable only???. Also if i need to replace the motherboard, what is the type/model/part i need to look for?, and is it used in any other similar laptop models?
Re: Charging Problems with FUJITSU SIEMENS AMILO PRO...
SOunds to me like the charge board inside the laptop has gone bad. If it will not run off of the mains supply without the battery and will not charge the battery, this is your problem. AS far as where you can get the parts or have it repaired. I am unsure of because I would need the full model and make of the laptop which didn't fit in the listing title bar above If you could send me more info, I would be glad to try to help.

When you plug the charger in does the charging light light up? Is is amber or green? If the light doesn't light up you may want to look at the charging unit itself as the culprit and get it replaced. If it does, then the problem could be either with the power management unit or with the battery itself. You can reset the power management system pretty easily to see if it resolves your issue. You can do this by powering down your laptop, removing the battery and then holding the power button down for 5 seconds. Replace the battery and power your laptop back on and take a look to see if the battery starts charging again. If the battery still doesn't charge you can easily check the battery. Download the app "Coconut Battery" from this website: http://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutbattery/ and run it. This will tell you what the current and max capacities are of your battery in mAh (milliamp hours). It will ALSO tell you what the designed capacity was of your battery. If your current capacity is significantly lower than the design capacity then you will need a new battery. You can buy these straight from Apple. If your battery reads as good you may have an issue between the charger and your battery...and now you're talking logic board issues and you would need to get it repaired by an Apple technician.
Try the battery from the other Dell system. If it charges fine, then its a problem with the battery, go for a replacement. Else, try updating the BIOS once from http://ftp.us.dell.com/bios/1525_A17.EXE. If it still doesn't charge the battery, then you may have to go for a motherboard replacement. If the system is under warranty then call Dell Tech Support @ 1-800-624-9896.
Dont be panic. Your laptop has absolutely no problem.Your manufacturer had set a 80-20 policy for the laptop battery charging such that the battery wont be charged to 100 percent but it will charged only upto 80 percent. The makers of the lap are doing this because to give good life to the battery.You can change it by going into the power options inside control panel.
Sounds like you need a new battery. When you have it plugged in it bypasses the battery so just providing constant power to the laptop but obviosuly when unplugged it's solely dependent on the battery and if this ist working and ant hold a charge it will just run out.
I'm afraid you will have to buy a new battery by searching the web with your model number.
Sorry to be the barer of bad news!

Probably you damaged the motherboard with an incompatible charger, You are very likely to need to have it replaced and to buy a fujitsu spare charger or at least an aftermarket compatible one...the charger might have broke instead because of overheating caused by the higher load, but cannot be sure about it because you didn't post full specs.
I found out how to solve this problem...first power down your computer. Then take out the battery, remove the power supply, and then hold down the power button for 30 secs. Put the power supply in only (not the battery). Start your computer after everything is done loading up put the battery back in. Give it a min. and then you should be able to roll your cursor over the battery life indicator in the lower right corner of you computer and is should say charging. I have found that other people have had this problem and it has worked for myself and for them.
Hi Jasbir, Laptop batteries only have a set life span and if your battery does not hold charge the only solution is topurchase another battery. You will find the cheapest way to do this is to search the computer section of ebay [laptop assessories ]
and find the battery for your laptop model.
