Question about Compaq Presario 1200 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop won't turn on, battery won't charge

I have a Compaq Presario 1200 laptop. It will not turn on when I push the power button. I bought a new battery thinking that was the problem. The battery charging light does not come on when the adaptor is plugged in. There is no heat on the bottom of the unit so I don't think the battery is charging. The adaptor lights come on when it is plugged in and the light on the laptop indicates it has electrical power. It worked fine the last time I used it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I had a similar issue with the Armada M700 from Compaq. Never did figure it out exactly. But I do know this. When you unplug the power chord and take out the battery and plug the power chord back in while the battery is out usually for some reason it turned on allowing me to replace the battery which would then begin charging. Your problem interests me because I can really relate!

Other expert is right--if not charger may be a loose socket where it plugs in or even a bad battery is possible.

You need to replace your old battery. Don't over charged your battery. If you are using your laptop in your house it is better not to use it with battery. Just use the power adaptor/supply only. Then make sure you will drain the battery let say once a week. =)

When i push the power button on my compaq 3000 it and the lightning bolts flash 3 times and then nothing , i have a brand new cord and battery


There seems to be a problem with charging your battery. Please remove the battery, connect the power adapter and turn on your PC. If it works, test with battery alone. If possible, check your battery in a simliar laptop to make sure if there's a problem in the battery.

Compaq Presario 1200 won't charge battery


dear N9YK

you can follow this

If you have a loose connection where you plug in the power on your laptop, or it works intermittently, you could have a bad dc jack. Symptoms
  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection
  • Broken or cracked dc jack
  • Laptop won't charge but worked on battery
  • Power LED and battery LED flicker when the adapter tip is moved
  • Battery won't charge
  • Sparks come out the back of the laptop
Why does this happen?
  • Flaw in manufacturer designs
  • Use of universal or non-original ac adapter
  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the ac adapter
  • Tripping on or pulling the ac adapter cord
or you can check your dc amper in your adaptor

oke



thx
