My Dell Latitude D610 Battery Stopped Working

Ok so my dell latitude D610 battery stopped charging and now there is a red flashing battery light. I tried a different charger and the battery still will not charge. Here is how it stopped working. Starts with the computer crashed so i shipped it to dallas and my dad fixed it. He got a new battery and it was working just fine. It had a full charge on it and then he sent it out back to NM. When i got it, the battery had no charge and won't change. How the story may help a little more. Thanks for your help.

The battery light flashing RED/AMber is an indication of a failed battery.

Portable batteries have a life expectancy of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles. (roughly 18 months under normal use) After that, the charge life starts to drop off and eventually it will not hold a charge. Because of this, the battery is considered a consumable item and is only warranted for one year from the manufacturer.

Since all the systems listed in the post are D610's (4 to 5 years old) it is not surprising that the batteries are failing.

Dropped Puck, if you replace the battery and a new battery doesn't charge/run the system, then the charging circuit on the MB is failed.

Have dell d610 battery light flashes 4 times red then one green, can't unplug


I would take note of the message you are getting and buy a new battery. I believe the red flashing lights mean that one or more of the cells in the battery are dying, and it's best not to turn off alarm lights like these. Did the battery hold charge for a longer period than one hour before you started to see the flashing light warning?

The battery is usable, but will slowly decline.

The system has the option of a 2nd battery in the media bay (In place of the optical drive) but since you don't have one installed, it just shows the 2nd battery as an option

Battery light blinking red even when charging


Looks like you need a new battery. Same thing happened with a DELL XPS, once the new battery was in place, all was fine.

Battery stopped working


Hey,

Test your charger, the battery light blinking and the computer not starting up indicates not enough power to start up or not pluged into ac power, check the power adapter or charger. I suspect the battery is fine.

Thanks,

Power for battery on DELL laptop Latitude D610 as posted FixYa


In the BIOS, does it show the battery and it's current state? As weird as it sounds, I've fixed an issue like this on a D600 by updating the BIOS to the most current level. Weird, but true.
