Question about HP DG937A - HP Tablet PC TC1100 Tethered Pen (DG937ATABLETPEN)

1 Answer

HP TC1100 The power plug appears to be bad.(Or the battery?) When the adaptor is plugged in, the "plugged in" light does not light. Is it possible the battery is bad? If not, is the plug the likely issue? Can it be repaired? Do you have the parts?

Try plugging in the tablet with the battery not installed. If there is no battery the tablet should turn on with just the AC adapter. If that works there might be a dead short in the battery and you would have to replace it

My hp pavilion dv6-2117ax laptop won't power up (no power light on where adaptor meets laptop). Replaced power adaptor / charger and laptop powered up and operated for a day and then next day woul


The laptop probably isn't charging. Could be a bad d/c connector on the laptop or the battery is bad. Remove the battery and plug in the a/c adapter and see if it powers on. Wiggle the a/c plug in gently while pressing the power button on the laptop. It powers on and off briefly then I'd say it's the d/c jack on the laptop, bad sodder joint.

I have a HP dv7 laptop it does not work with the ac adapter but worked with the battery, whenever it is working with the battery and the ac adapter is connected it shuts down.


Remove the battery and plug the ac adaptor in check wethere the light on the port where you connect the ac adaptor glows or not, if no then check the wethere the ac adaptor is getting warm or not after you plug it in for few minutes if not then ac adaptor has to be replaced.
If the light on the port is glowing then it is likely that the power supply of the notebook has gone bad as it is not able to switch to ac adaptor or the port where you connect the ac adaptor to the notebook has a short circut when the acadaptor pin is connected , better try with a different ac adaptor to be sure wethere the issue is with ac adaptor or the notebook.
My best wishes

My Gateway 1450 will not power up. For the last 2 weeks that battery light has been red (battery need recharging). i had the unit turned off with no ac power to it all weekend and not it will not power up....


The motherboard battery is just a little round battery that you can buy at almost any retailer in most pcs. The model number to the battery is usually a CR 2032. This battery does not receive any power from your power supply. Have you noticed your PC loosing time over the last few months? This is usually a good indication that the motherboard battery is dying. The lights that you refer to though should only partain to the rechargable battery of the notebook. During the past two weeks while the red light was on, was the AC adaptor plugged in to the laptop and plugged into an AC source? If your AC adaptor has been plugged in and is not charging the notebook battery then there could be one or both of the following problems: your notebook battery could be bad or your AC adaptor could be bad. Something you may or may not know is that it is not good to keep the AC adaptor plugged in all the time. This causes the notebook battery not to fully discharge after being charged. Over a long period of time, the battery will not even charge anymore. My suggestion is that if you know someone with a similar AC adaptor to yours, borrow it to see if it charges your battery. If the battery doesn't charge then you know to replace. However, I am almost certain that you problem is the battery. Sometime older laptops like the one I have has a reset button on the underside. If yours has one try removing the battery and leave it out. Then plug in the power and press and hold the reset button for 10 to 20 seconds. If no reset button is on yours then do the same process with the battery removed and power adding, but hold the power button instead.

Does not start; no power indicator light


Take out the battery and then try the different ac adaptors. If you still get no lights on the laptop then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced. Just make sure that you know at least one of your ac adaptors are good.

If the adaptors have lights and they turn on then you know the ac adaptor your working with is good. Also make sure they are plugged into a good working outlet.

TC1100 does not turn on!


Check the wall outlet to be sure it is providing power. Use a lamp or a fan or other electrical device to be sure that outlet provides power. Check the power surge supression strip, and ensure it is switched on if it has a switch, and it it has a fuse reset button, push that in or push it to the reset position. Recheck the connection of the wall connector cable to the small DC converter box. Finally recheck the connection of the end of the power cable where it connects to the PC. If the Tablet still does not show a green light indicator on the front, try removing the battery. The TC1100 works with the battery completely removed. If you have power but no display, then the problem could be with the display. I suggest that since there are a lot of problems with the older tablet PCs, that if you still have problems with it and do not really need that type, check out the new low priced Atom processor netbooks and the new moderately priced Intel Core2 Duo notebook PCs and AMD dual core and tri-core notebook PCs, with plenty of RAM like 2GB or more, and preferably dedicated video RAM, like an NVideo or ATI video that provides 64MB or 128MB or 256 MB or 512MB or more of dedicated video memory. Back to your TC, ensure it has good power, then look to possible bigger issues that power or power adapter - the CPU or board could be bad, or it may boot up but not display because of a problem with video on board or in the connector to the screen or in the screen circuitry.
