I not sure what a "latern" is but I would suspect a bad cord or a faulty plug in (device side). Has the device been pulled, tugged, yanked, by the cord?

Power cord

That is the power supply board, I suggest you replace it or remove it and check for poor solder connections or a cracked circuit board.

The adapter need to match the charge voltage requirements of the battery in the Swissgear lantern.

I have an ASUS eee netbook. Recently the power cord hasn't been connecting well to the computer and now it doesn't even register. It's plugged in but isn't charging. Is it the cord or the laptop?

You have a bad DC connector, which came loose from the system board:

Problem symptoms:

  1. Laptop randomly shuts down without any warning.
  2. Power LED and battery charge LED start flickering when you wiggle the power cord or the AC adapter tip on the back or your laptop.
  3. The battery will not get charged.
  4. When you plug AC adapter, the laptop appears to be dead and there is no LED activity at all (DC-IN jack on the system board is broken).

Here is a tutorial on how to fix a DC connector problem. You may want to have a tech fix it.

Hi, your problem is the DC socket Plug on the motherboard. This is a solution 5$ (for the plug only) and soldering iron and solder. If it is within warranty give it straight away for repair at their cost. THIS IS a VERY common problem to HP laptops. Dont Accept anything other than a full repair. (requires dissasembly of the plastics to expose the connector and be able to resolder it.)

If it is out of warranty then find the plug, and DIY or engineer friends may be in order :) If you send it to 3rd partie tech shops they may charge 100-150$ for a 5$ spare part..the rest is their time spent and many six packs.

It sounds like either the power cord is bad or there is a fuse/circuit breaker in there that has been tripped. If you have a manual see if there is one of those (or look in back, maybe you can see it). If it is the power cord try jiggling it around and see if the light flickers, meaning there is a break in it. If that fails try Googling it -- maybe Kenmore has a troubleshooting webpage or you might be able to download a manual.

Battery: Fast Discharge, Slow Charge, Charging Lights Flicker, Runs off battery when plugged in

Problems sounds like a damaged power pin from pulling or jerking on the AC cable. I use a Cable Retention Device like the one in this video to keep from hurting the pin.
