Question about Dell Inspiron 600M Notebook

Insprion 600m Reddish Tint when on Battery Power

Hello,

I have a Dell Inspiron 600m that is a few years old. I bought it used and it has worked great. About 3 weeks ago my screen went completely black so I took it to a local repair guy and he replaced the inverter which made things right.

The problem I have now is that when my laptop is running on or starting up on battery power, I have a red tint to the entire screen. If I plug the power cord into the laptop the red goes away.

What could be causing this?

And thanks to all you who provide answers and your time in helping others.

My Dell inspiron mini 10 is just over 1 year old not used very much at all, last week for no reason there is no display on the screen, I tried to reboot on battery power and ac no luck. Thanks Frank.


There are 3 mini 10 models sold by Dell. The Inspiron 1010 (Mini 10), Insprion 1012 (Mini 10) and the Insprion 1018 (Mini 10v). Depending on which model you have, you can try to connect an external monitor and see if you get a display. The 1012 and the 1018 have a 15 pin VGA plug on the left side of the laptop and the 1010 has an HDMI jack for video. If you get a display then your LCD display is bad and needs to be replaced.

Laptop won't dock


The inspiron 600M will not function in a D-Dock, but will work in a D-Series port Replicator. (Although the D600 and 600M share the same motherboard, the bottom plastics are different)

After trying the 600M in the D-Dock, it is possible the dock is damaged. I would undock the D630, then delete the docked profile. power off, dock, and reboot and see if it detects and works.

Dell 600m Laptop Killing batteries


If you are using known good batteries, and you have the most current BIOS Flash, then it is likely a failure of the charging curcuit on the motherboard. The flashing Amber (Some people see it as red) led indicates a failed battery

The Multiple good batteries, I assume have been recently purchased, because computer batteries are consumable and are rated for 300 to 500 charging cycles before they wear out.

I replaced my 700m motherboard with one from Ebay for about $170.00 about a year ago.
