A620 wont operate from batteries but will work off of ac adapter

I've had this A620 for about 2 1/2 years. Bought new. I've kept good care of the cam. Batteries are good. When I push down on the on/off button only the green indicator light flashes momentarily once.

Try replacing the batteries and check again. If this fails to solve the problem, try cleaning the battery terminals and the camera's contact points with an eraser. It could also be possible that the battery chamber's door is not closing properly. Try to press it while you turn the camera on.

LOL, I didn't know Packard Bell was still making computers. I would think they sold you a bad battery. I've purchased new batteries before that would not charge.

You do not need a battery to run the camcorder off ac power supply. It is one or the other. The only time that both will be used is when you are charging the battery on the camcorder with the power off.

Hope this helps.

You say you bought a new adapter--was is a Toshiba adapter? Was it a "generic" one?
You have to be careful, because some adapters have different polarity and could damage the computer.

If you are sure the adapter is OK and is putting out the correct voltage (~18 v.) then disconnect the battery and try running the computer without the battery just using the adapter.

I don't think this is a BIOS problem. The operating system should not affect the function of the adapter.Most likely you have a motherboard problem if all else is working.

Is the AC Power adapter the original adapter of the laptop? If it is, try to drain the battery and charge it for 8-12 hours without using or opening the laptop just charge it. After charging, remove the power adapter as you open your laptop. Make this way a habbit of using and charging your laptop to make the charging and battery life last long.

Dell XPS 1530 wont power on at all..


Troubleshooting is pretty simple.
  1. Try a different Dell 90W or larger D/E-Series AC adapter and see if the system gets power. If no known good AC adapter is available, then check output voltage of AC adapter (Should be about 19VDC or so) If you can't do either, then the AC adapter is still the cheapest item to replace for a no power issue.
  2. If system will not power on with a known good AC adapter or new one, then the motherboard is the likely failure point. Roughly $150 on Ebay

Battery doesn't stay charged


The problem is with the battery. All Lithium batteries last for around 1000 charges or so. Since the laptop is 2-years old the battery needs to be replaced.
I Hope this solves your problem. Kindly Accept my solution.

Dell d610 latitude wont charge new battery


Hey,
First off, do you have a way to check the output of the ac adapter to ensure it's putting out the correct current?
If you've done that and have a multimeter handy, you can remove the battery, system off, and check the charge pins for current/voltage. I believe one of the end pins is neg (ground) and at least one of the other pins should show 2.6-3.6V, as well as other various voltages. If you fail to get any response at the charger pins, we'll need to look at the board circuitry, assuming again that the ac adapter is operating properly.
Good luck
