Laptop charger melting

I recently had trouble with my laptop charger, which was purchased a year ago. At first the charger would keep flashing on and off, then the other day whilst plugged in the charger end melted. What is the cause of this problem, and would it affect my laptop functioning in the long run seeing as it was plugged in when it melted. Would i still be able to use another charger on the laptop?

    more or less the same is happening to my 2year old laptop. the charger has melted and the metal charger is stuck inside the laptop and will not come out.

    when using the laptop charger connector tip (the metal bit) gets incredbly hot.
    does the problem reside with the charger? the laptop? or what?
    and how do I remove the charger connector tip from the laptop!!

    thanks

The cause was high resistance in the charger, probably from a poor solder joint. It is likely your laptop was not damaged. You can use another charger.

Lenovo laptop sparks when charger is plugged in


Normally this should never happen. There is definitely something wrong with your laptop charger. You should stop using it. You can purchase replacement from stores such as ebay, amazon, google shopping, and etc. They are the cheapest compared to the your laptop brand's company. However, their prices and policies also vary greatly.

Personally, I would suggest buying from chargerbuy.com

According to your laptop model, you may search the correct replacement lenovo charger from the following link:
http://www.chargerbuy.com/laptop-ac-adapter/ibm-ac-adapters.html


This is where I bought my laptop charger sometime ago, and it is still working fine. Although their price is in the mid-range compare to the places I listed above, the price is much less than the original brand.
Moreover, this reasonable price comes with a year warranty. You should really take this website into consideration before purchasing. Their warranty and policy are very clear.

Hope this helps! Best of luck!

Acer aspire 5750 charging problem


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.
The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

Your battery is faulty.

If you are sure that your laptop charger is dead and you are in the market for a new one, try the following one:

Things that you can try:
1. disconnect the charger and the battery. 2. press and hold the power button for 15 secs. w/o the charger and the battery (the reason for that is to drain flea power). 3. connect the laptop straight from the charger w/o the battery and turn it on. It should turn on fine. If nothing happens, the motherboard is bad or the charger.

Yes you need a new battery. I had the same problem almost exactly a year ago. You need to contact Casio and tell them the problem, they should send you a new battery free of charge. This is the proper number to call, 1 800 435 7732. Just tell them your battery charger is flashing red when you are trying to charge and they will send you a new battery.

Dell 600m Laptop Killing batteries


If you are using known good batteries, and you have the most current BIOS Flash, then it is likely a failure of the charging curcuit on the motherboard. The flashing Amber (Some people see it as red) led indicates a failed battery

The Multiple good batteries, I assume have been recently purchased, because computer batteries are consumable and are rated for 300 to 500 charging cycles before they wear out.

I replaced my 700m motherboard with one from Ebay for about $170.00 about a year ago.

Battery Charge error


Hey Lak_69,
One problem I know of is the battery for your camera should be model NP-20 not model NP-40. The NP-20 has 650mAh. I would exchange your new battery for the correct model battery, and see if this works. If this doesn't work I would try cleaning the battery terminals in the camera, and if that doesn't work go ahead and try a new charger.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
