Dell pp01l Power Problem

I think that my laptop power jack is not working because i bought a new charger and is working fine but when i plugged it to the laptop, the laptop doesn't do anything. In some minutes later i start to smell like if the laptop was on fire. I unplugged it and i smell the back where the power jack is and the smell comes from the power jack. Any suggestion on how to fix it.

My daughter's Dell Latitude E5500 won't charge. If I plug her charger into my exactly the same model - works fine. The moment the power lead touches her input port, the light goes off and then the cha


1. Does YOUR charger work on her computer? If yes, you need to replace her charger.

2. If YOUR charger doesn't work on her computer, then the problem is most likely a broken power jack (or a "cold solder joint" on the power jack). The power jack is mounted directly on the motherboard, therefore the entire computer needs to be disassembled to repair it. Here's a link to a YouTube video showing this repair:

Charging light is flashing


There are two possible causes for this issue:
1) Your dell 9400 charger is malfunction
2) Your laptop dc power jack is loose or dead

Possible troubleshooting step:
1) Borrow a compatible dell charger to plug in your laptop, if it works without any issue, it means your dell inspiron 9400 adapter need to be replaced.

2) If the compatible dell 9400 charger won't work normally, the problem may lie in your dc power jack.

Hope this will help.

Is the AC Power adapter the original adapter of the laptop? If it is, try to drain the battery and charge it for 8-12 hours without using or opening the laptop just charge it. After charging, remove the power adapter as you open your laptop. Make this way a habbit of using and charging your laptop to make the charging and battery life last long.

Inspiron 1720 is shorting ac adapter? laptop has


It can be the AC power jack on your laptop. Believe me I have an inspiron myself and this problem is a real pain. However you can easily fix it by un-soldering the old jack, re-soldering the new one in. You can find a replacement on e-bay. If you are not good at soldering,I suggest you take professional assistance. Its a very inexpensive repair.

Dell 620 battery and charger good stll will not charge


Bad? Most likely, that laptop is pretty old, (at least 2 years) surprised that it lasted that long. Sorry, no disresprect, but they are only available as outlet. Of course you can still get support and downloads from Dell.com. Also you can still get batteries, power supplies and etc. (I do not work for Dell.com, nor advertise any of their products) Not that this will do you any good I think. It seems as though the actual module that your power supply plugs into is bad....Imagine that. It's a dell, not the first or last time that I had to buy a new power supply or that happened to me. Also it has somewhat to do with the power surges from the plug that you are in...Please I rather not get into that. Sorry I can't be of any more help. I my opinion, your original thought is pretty close to your solution. Let me know..m_nastasi@hotmail.com

DELL LATITUDE D600 WON'T POWER UP AT ALL!


The charger may be bad. You need to measure the output voltage at the computer end of the cord with a voltmeter. Zero volts means bad unit, but may be just the plug end wires are broken near the plug (common problem). A repair shop might be able to fix it with a new plug. A new charger is outrageously expensive.

Dell xps m1210 won't power up with new battery. Check notes.


If it is working fine with a fresh battery then it is not a motherboard problem. It is either a bad ac adapter jack on the motherboard or the actual ac adapter cord is not working. Try cables2go.com as they have replacement ac adapters for almost everything under the sun. Hope this helps.
