    When you plug your charger into the Wall it sparks? or when you plug it into the Laptop?

    You have a short in it. Don't use it until you replace or repair it. If you post the make and model perhaps someone can tell you how to do that.

Are you talking about the laptop charger? Was it wet when you plug it in?

Wipe the plug with dry cloth and try to plug it in directly to another wall socket. If it still cannot power up it means the charger must have been fried. You must replace it. You cannot repair the charger by yourself.
I suggest you bring the charge to a radio shack for spec reference

Laptop died suddenly and is not charging


Take the battery out and discharge the capacitors by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. plug in the charger without the battery in to see if you get a charge light. If you do, replace battery and plug in charger and power on laptop. If this does not work, you may have to pull the cmos battery for 15 minutes and try it again.

Sounds like the charge socket is not properly seated on the motherboard. I would call customer service on where you bought the laptop and tell them the situation. But by all mean DO NO continue to use it. You may do damage that they say "Is your fault"

Trust me I have had clients that have "Been there .. done that"

Good luck

Computer wont charge. Plugged up and still wont charge. Is it internal, battery or charger?


I'm not asking if the computer will charge, I'm asking if when you have it plugged in does the computer operate normally. You should be able to take the battery out of a laptop and plug in the computer in and the computer should still operate.

The socket where you plug the charger into the laptop is loose and now will not charge. where can i send it to be fixed and how much will it cost? I am in Niagara falls, ONtario


Hi
This is typically caused by tension on the plug. For instance, you allow the charger to dangle and hang on the plug. This causes poor contact and the socket gets hot and melts.
If you go to the manufacturers they will charge you for a new mainboard. Your best bet is to take it into a local TV/Hi-Fi repair shop and get a quote.

Faulty Charger


If the unit works with the charger plugged in, but not with the battery, the most likely problem is the battery itself. Replac the battery. While possible, it is rare for the charging system to fail within the laptop. Let us know if the new battery has problems.
