HP4530s battery dischargs when turned off

My HP4530s's battery discharges when it is switched off. It discharges at a rate about 1%~2% per day (switched off) But when the battery is removed from the laptop, battery never discharges itself. It seems like laptop uses battery even it's turned off. I have noticed that HP Power assistant keeps history data about laptop on,off time etc. Off time timer works only when battery is available. There is no option in bios or HP power manager related to disabling battery usage when laptop is turned off. Could anyone please help me to solve this problem?

Remove the battery when the laptop is OFF. I am not good at electronics, but I think this is normal and is NOT A PROBLEM.

SOURCE: Hp laptop... black screen... caps lock flashes 5

When the Caps Lock flashes, it is then being used in a diagnostic mode. 5 times flashing means a problem with the System Board.

Motherboard.

I don't doubt it.

Two common problems, all based on one issue.
Overheating.

1) Problem One;

Primer;
The Processor, and the GPU are the two hardware components that produce the most heat.

[ GPU = Graphics Processing Unit. Slang? Graphics chipset,

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

It could be something as simple as foam has melted, and melted down onto the motherboard, near the Processor socket. Removal puts the laptop back into service again.

It could be much more complicated, and follow an issue that has beleaguered the HP Pavilion dv2000 series, dv6000 series, and dv9000 series.

The cooling system for the GPU is inefficient. Allows the GPU to overheat.
Constant overheating partially melts the solder connections of the GPU to the motherboard.

The graphics chipset (GPU) is mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_grid_array

To explain the BGA surface mount;
Compare to an older Intel Pentium 4 processor, and it's Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

The processor has contact pins on the bottom. (478 of 'em) These line up with matching socket holes in the Socket 478 processor socket. (478)

With a BGA surface mount there are no contact pins, nor socket holes.
Solder Balls take the place of the contact pins, and Copper Pads take the place of the socket holes.

The graphics chipset's Solder Balls, are lined up with the matching Copper Pads on the motherboard.
Heat is then applied at a specific temperature, and length of time.

This procedure melts the Solder Balls, and solders the graphics chipset to the Copper Pads.
(Motherboard)

With constant overheating the solder connections that were created, start to melt. This creates a poor connection.

The professional method to repair this problem, is to use a BGA Rework Machine, to Properly re-solder the connections.

Due to the location of repair shops that have a BGA Rework Machine, and the C-O-S-T, many are attempting to perform the procedure with a non-professional method.

A thin metal shield is cutout in the middle, for the graphics chipset. This shield is set over the graphics chipset, and lays on the motherboard. Heat is then kept just to the graphics chipset, and the other components on the motherboard are protected.

Heat is applied with a propane torch, or a hot air gun, (Not hair dryer), in a circular (Spiral), pattern to the graphics chipset. With a more proper method used, the tip of a thermometer that can read this heat range, is laid on the chipset, and is used to keep the chipset at a specific temperature.

(Too much heat will burn up the chipset. Too little will not properly remelt the solder connections. A Cold Solder joint, or joints, will result)

The heat from the heating instrument, (Propane Torch/Hot Air Gun), is rotated around in a spiral pattern on the chipset. Constant moving around to distribute the heat evenly.
(You do not want a 'hot spot')

When the specific heat range is met, the heating instrument is slowly moved away from the chipset.

Move up an inch or so, keep spiraling. Then move up another inch or so, and keep spiraling the heat source. Slowly move up in increments while spiraling. S-L-O-W-L-Y back away. Method is used so that the chipset slowly cools down. Otherwise a cold solder joint, or joints, could result.
(Right back to where you started)

This link is to a video that shows one style of the procedure. It is not an advertisement for the video, just linked for the procedure information,

Okay, I'm working on a scooter for my nephew that originally came with (2) 12 volt 12Ah batteries minus the charger. and I know I need to replace them with (2) batteries of the same 12 volts and lets


not exact, to charge apropiate needs 10% more than nominal voltage. if not, will not charge the batteries.
And the charger its very important because you can over charge the battery.An example,if you have a 12 Amps Batteries each one if you put it in series will be 24 Volts.at parallel conection will be 12 volts but the double of Amps.
At serial connection will be 12 Volts the amps will be the same but the volts will be 24.

The charger at 12 Volts must be 13.8-14.5 DC Volts and divide the Amps in Hours.
The charger at 24 Volts must be 26-28 Volts. to charge well.

The charger for 12 amps batt example must charge 2 amps per hour at 6 hours = 12 Amps.(2 Amps Charger by 6 Hours Charging= 12 Amps.(Fully Charged.
3 Amperes Charger needs 4 Hours to charge 12 amps Batt.
5 Amperes Charger needs 2 Hours charging an a quarter
All of this is at DC Current.

Luck.

Photosmart M447 wont turn on.


50 pictures is way more than I get from this camera per battery charge. It draws 500mA when on, and 1000mA of current from the batteries when charging the flash so battery life will be short.

It also has a design flaw that says low battery and shuts off even when the batteries are 95% charged.

Be aware that rechargeable NiMH batteries self discharge at a rate of about 1% per day. They have a strong Amp-hour rating but need to be freshly charged.

IF the camera won't turn on at all when trying NEW 1.6V Lithium AA's (those are the strongest AA's made) or freshly charged 1.2V NiMH batteries and you know they are charging up to at least 1.35V per cell (they charge above their rating) then the camera itself has a problem.

Even if you get it to work, this is one of the lowest quality camera's made. I have quite a few decent camera's and I've never seen anything like this one, it's rated for 5Meg but has less resolution than an old 2Meg Canon. I paid $39 for it new on 3-2010 and I sent it back because it has no purpose since it can not take a clear picture.

Sorry but the only solution with this camera is to get something better (Canon, Sony, Nikon).

Your inverter has a peak of 3000 watts rating and should power that hair dryer. Make sure your batteries are in good shape. The inverter can only put out what it takes in. 1800 watt demand on the inverter requires 1800 watts from the batteries.

What is the difference between the available AA battery chemistries?


AA batteries are available in four basic varieties: Alkaline Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) Nickel-Cadmium (NiCad) Photo Lithium (Li-FeS2) Alkaline and photo lithium are non-rechargeable, while NiMH and NiCad are rechargeable. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Non-Rechargeable vs. Rechargeable: Rechargeable batteries are desirable from an environmental standpoint because they are reusable. Self-discharge refers to the fact that batteries lose energy when unused and even when not in a camera or other device. Rechargeable batteries tend to have relatively high self-discharge rates, approximately 1-2% per day for nickel-based batteries. Non-rechargeable batteries generally have very long shelf lives and extremely slow self-discharge rates. This makes non-rechargeable batteries a better choice for infrequent usage. Non-rechargeable batteries are available fully charged in stores all over the world, which makes them a convenient choice for travelers or customers who have dead rechargeable batteries and no time to recharge. Photo Lithium Batteries (Li-FeS2) (non-rechargeable): Photo lithium batteries will yield the longest battery life of any AA battery, surpassing NiMH by 50-100% and surpassing alkaline by 100-500%, depending on the load. While they are more expensive than alkaline batteries, their additional energy capacity makes the cost the same or less per shot than alkaline batteries. Nickel-Metal Hydride Batteries (NiMH) (rechargeable): NiMH batteries are the lowest cost overall solution for users that take a lot of pictures (more than the equivalent of a roll of film per month) or use a lot of high-power features. The largest disadvantage to NiMH batteries is their fast self-discharge rate of 1-2% per day whether the batteries are in a camera or not. NOTE: NiMH batteries need to be completely charged and discharged a few times when new to achieve their full capacity. Rechargeable batteries will eventually fail. If you have been getting acceptable battery life and then see a decrease in life, either quickly or slowly over time, a worn-out battery may be the cause. Storing or charging the batteries in high temperature conditions will accelerate this potential failure. Alkaline Batteries (non-rechargeable): Although the cheapest and easiest to find, alkaline batteries yield the worst performance of all the chemistries in a digital camera. They lose capacity at high power drains and at low temperatures. Skiers and other winter outdoor enthusiasts may find them unsatisfactory. Alkaline batteries are frequently available in two types: High drain (ultra, titanium, maximum etc.) Regular The high drain versions are a premium product designed to operate better under heavy loads than the standard product. However, there is a trend of major brands to increase the performance of their standard battery to b
