Laptop plugged in not charging:

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

2. Make sure your toshiba power cord is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.

3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.

4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.

5. The power button could be bad

6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: my laptop stopped charging

You need to get the DC Power Jack Either Repaired or replaced...this is the "female" port where your AC Power cord plugs into.. To Repair the current DC Jack...First you'll need to look closely at the Positive posts to see that they are not broken.. If visibally ok.. then you can look at the Solder Connections.. they will need to first be Desoldered.. Cleaned, then Resoldered back in place....

SOURCE: My Dell Latitude D610 Battery Stopped Working

The battery light flashing RED/AMber is an indication of a failed battery.

Portable batteries have a life expectancy of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles. (roughly 18 months under normal use) After that, the charge life starts to drop off and eventually it will not hold a charge. Because of this, the battery is considered a consumable item and is only warranted for one year from the manufacturer.

Since all the systems listed in the post are D610's (4 to 5 years old) it is not surprising that the batteries are failing.

Dropped Puck, if you replace the battery and a new battery doesn't charge/run the system, then the charging circuit on the MB is failed.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite a205 Battery Will Not Charge

You did what all should not have been done. your battery works as a buffer between high surge of electricity which comes through electrical supply i.e. it protects your smps from burning up. From your current position it seems your smps fuse has blown. If they have given one or else your smps itself has gone. I'll tell you for your future usage of battery. Whenever you get any electronic equipment with chargable battery you should never switch it on unless and untill you have charged it for continuous 24 hours. Never try to run such equipment directly through dc or ac power. Hope your fuse has gone its not costly.

We got a RULU in 12/2013. It worked for 3 months and now can not charge i


Some tablet brands will not recognize certain charger brands or connections.
First, try all available connections-USB-wall inverter, and direct computer connection (making sure the computer is awake and logged in). Second, try restarting your tablet. Third, try gently wiggling the connections on both ends, to see if it recognizes a charge. Finally, leave it plugged in for a few hours, even if it says it isn't charging. You may have a trickle charge-to put it simply, the cord is not giving the device enough power to qualify as a charge, but there is power traveling through the cord. If the charge level goes up a little over that time span, you have a trickle.
If these don't work, just purchase a new charger. They're sold everywhere-Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, 7-Eleven, name a store and they probably sell USB charger cords.
I hope I helped.

Packard bell netbook nav50 battery stopped charging properly. bought a new charger and battery and it still wont charge it up.


LOL, I didn't know Packard Bell was still making computers. I would think they sold you a bad battery. I've purchased new batteries before that would not charge.

My computer no longer charges. I replaced the charger and for a little while the new charger was working. But now the new charger will be in the charger portal and the computer does not charge at all once...


this problem comes from a bad Battery.
you told:"I replaced the charger and for a little while the new charger was working"
it means that the battery is damaged and only because of a new charger, charged for a little time.
so change the battery.

Logitech harmony 880 won't charge


Clean the leads on both the charger and on the remote itself with rubbing alcohol.
We had this problem (it would lose connection periodically for no apparent reason, then eventually wouldn't even register that it was set down). The leads sure looked clean, but shining them up with rubbing alcohol (recommended on one of the Logitech boards) got it to start charging again.

Magellan Maestro 4250 wont charge


No the device is not defective. magellan has this stupid usb interface problem preventing the unit from being charged and used at the same time, they do that so you have to use there charger. the unit will say usb connected and will not boot up like normal at all. unit will be locked up until the usb is unplugged. most usb devices charge at 5v with 500mA, and the magellan requires 5v 1A. Ipod Charger charges at the 1A with 5v but wont work
