Question about Dell Latitude D610 Notebook
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.
