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 the power adapter 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.

My device won't charge


This situation sometimes occurs when the batteries get overcharged. Use the phone for a day and then attempt to charge. If it still won't charge, remove the battery for about a minute. Then re-install the battery and attempt to charge. If that doesn't clear the problem, you may need to get a new battery.

My Nikon Coolpix S3000 says battery exhausted, but when I plug into charge it won't charge. Any suggestions?


The rechargeable battery probably needs to be replaced, I would take it to a camera shop let him have a quick look to make sure the charge light is coming on and try a new battery.

Acer Aspire 5050 I bought a new battery . My laptop works fine on Ac power but when I installed the battery it shuts off immediately


I apologize that I am having a hard time following the thread as to what you have tried and so forth. I will assume the following:
1. You have an old battery that does not hold a charge but the laptop does run with this battery installed, from AC or from AC w/no battery installed.
2. You have installed the new battery (with the laptop off) and it does not run from the battery or when plugged in.
3. You have tried charging the new battery 4-6 hours.
4. You are using the original charger or one that is fully rated for the laptop - I think this needs a 90W.
New question: does the charge light come on?
If the above are all true then there are 2 possible problems:
1. Bad (shorted) battery - this is possible, although unlikely, fro a new battery.
2. Power connection on the motherboard is faulty. The center pin may be loose, thus not giving full power to the system to charge the battery and run the laptop at the same time. This should be "overcome" by charging the battery w/system off. OR, the connector is like a headphone jack in that when you plug in, the primary connection is opened but on this series of laptop I have seen this fail.
Try powering up with the battery in and adapter plugged into the laptop but not to the wall.
Let me know what you discover. Reply w/my name so I know which thread to read.

I just replaced my H320 iRiver battery last night. When I plug it in, it says it's charging. I let it charge overnight and it's still saying it's charging. When I unplug it and try to turn it on,...


Probably you installed wrong. Depending on the battery manufacturer, the end contacts must be swithced in order for the battery to work. Read about it in the Misticriver forums. Good luck!

Compaq Presario needed a new battery was installed labtop will not charge up!


When you install a new battery and remove a battery always make sure the laptop is completely shut off and have the power cord removed so that you avoid any possible power surge.

Batteries generally don't last much longer than a year and I have found removing the power cord or battery when it is off to be a good practice.

Before you charge a battery make sure it is run most all the way down. Recharging a battery when it is not run down can give it a memory and you may only be able to charge it up to the point you started charging it.

Anyway, if the computer won't charge a new battery then you could have a bad motherboard. To be sure try another battery.

My Vector Vec157 Flashlight won't Charge...


It is the battery, I have a similiar Vector light for a few years and tried re-charging the battery but only the little LED light would come on. I have another Vector light, same model and switched batteries from the worjking one to the non-working one and now it works fine.

I then proceeded to purchase a new battery for the non'working one and when I arrived home I installed it and turned on the main light, still won't turn on, I tried the LED's, they work. I figured maybe the new battery needs a good charge so I plugged the charger in and charged the light for 12 hours, still no main light.

I guess the new battery is defective, so now I will return it and exchange it for another one.
