Troubleshooting Laptop Power Failures - The AC Adapter


Symptom:

Wiggling the AC adapter cord causes the power status LED on the laptop to blink.


Diagnosis & Solution:

The problem could be that the copper wires inside the AC adapter cord became frayed or broken right where they enter the connector on the end of the AC adapter cord. The wires (a number of very thin conductors twisted into a heavier cable) are sized for the amount of power the laptop requires. As thin wires break and lose contact, all of the power must flow through the remaining conductors, leading to overheating, which can cause damage or be a safety hazard.

To make sure that this is the case, first test the output voltage from the connector on the end of the AC adapter cord using a digital multimeter set to measure DC voltage. While measuring, bend the AC adapter cord in various directions. If this causes the reading to jump betwwen zero & the nominal output voltage (written on the label on the AC adapter), then you know that you will need to replace the connector.

In order to get this fixed, you will need a new connector and basic soldering skills, or you can take it to an electronics shop for a cheap repair but get the price before agreeing. If you decide to repair it yourself, then you will have to find a replacement connector. Most of these connectors are easy to find and your local Radio Shack often has them in stock. Just bring your laptop along to make sure you get the right size. However, some laptops use a highly proprietary connector for which you can't easily find a replacement, in which case your best option is to find a failed AC adapter for your laptop model, cut the end off (with plenty of slack) and splice it onto your AC adapter's cable.

If you work on irregular surfaces (like a lap) and allow the cord to dangle, the wires may break just inside the connector due to pulling, despite the fact that the factory connector is encapsulated in molded plastic. You can carefully take apart the molded plastic with a razor knife to temporarily fix a connection, but it's smarter to replace the connector end as soon as you determine it is causing intermittent power failures.

Another possibility might be that the power receptacle in the laptop (where you plug the AC adapter cord) has failed. Sometimes the center pin of the connector breaks off, sometimes the solder joints on the main board fail, sometimes there's a break between the connector contacts and the motherboard contacts. In all these instances, you or the technician has to gain clear access to the laptop's motherboard to make the repair. In order to get this done, you might need clear disassembly instructions, as well as decent soldering skills. You could get a replacement connector usually for less than $10, but the repair charge can be several hundred dollars for some models if you take it to a local shop.

Need to find out where power cord for Westinghouse ld-3255vx goes


Hello
You have to use an AC adapter to this set, which will be already been supplied with this set, when you bought it. Connect the adapters' output to the "DC IN" connetion socet at the back of the TV.

My gateway laptop note book, will not power up, I have checked the cord, battery etc. Went to turn it on one day and no power? someone mentioned that it over heated?


First of all, take the battery off and try to turn it on with the ac adapter (power cord) connected. If it comes up without the battery then it's your battery.

If it doesn't turn on without the battery and with just the ac adapter, try a different ac adapter. You can find one to try at your local pc shop or electronics store. If it comes up with another ac adapter then all you need to do is purchase an ac adapter at the store or order one online (cheaper).

If it still doesn't come on then it's either your dc jack or your motherboard. Normally if it's just the dc jack it will turn on or attempt to turn on when you wiggle the connecter in the ac adapter connection. If it's your dc jack it's relatively inexpensive to purchase online. The problem comes with having to take apart the laptop, desoldering the old and soldering the new dc jack, and putting the computer back together.

Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.

I m have a laptop without the ac adapter and its an older modle serial no. is 82143976p and i want to know is which one to get for it.


Your quickest & easiest option is to take your laptop with you to an electronics store like Radio Shack to find an adapter with the correct size plug, polarity, and voltage by looking & comparing your options directly from the info on the chassis. Radio Shack would be my first stop since I know they have a good system for cross referencing the various ac/dc plugs & adapters, and if you need assistance later on, they are easy to find.

Hi I have a acer aspire 1694WLMi laptop which doesn't charge fully. Also when the ac adapter is connected the screen keeps flashing between battery mode and ac mode.


The source of the problem obviously is either the AC power cord or the battery, or it could be a combination of the two. In terms of the symptoms you describe, it could be a faulty AC cord. This could involve a few possiblities: loose connection between the AC plug and the AC adapter unit, a loose connection between the mini plug (the part that goes into your laptop) and the AC adapter unit, or the AC unit itself could be going bad.

Not sure how intermittent the flashing between battery and ac mode is. If you're talking very frequent such as once every minute or so, I would be suspicious of either the plug (both AC and input to laptop sides) or the connections between the AC adapter portion and the plug. Not sure how long you've had the laptop and cord, but it is possible that the cord has somehow worn out. This wearing out can be accelerated if you often use the AC cord and there is tension on it.

One finally suggestion of course is to either try a new cord. You can often find them on e-bay and can even purchase used ones for a cheap price. If you do, you will then obviously be able to confirm that the cord was the problem. One might think or say the battery is not charging fully and is the problem. True, the battery may be a problem, but the root cause may be the cord.

Good luck!

I need a replacement power cord



Found one here:
http://acebargains.stores.yahoo.net/acpoadforwel.html

and ebay looks to have a few as well:

Hope this helps. You are right this far from a typical power supply cord. Most just need to the cord with a 3 hole female end that plugs straight in the monitor.
