The power jack has most likely become unsoldered from the main board. If you can GET to it, you resolder it, then lay a bead of epoxy around the back and sides of the jack to keep it from happening again. Getting to it is the problem. Places online advertise repairs for about $100. I don't know if they add epoxy, though. Bad for return business.

Laptop is turning on and off


Remove the AC adapter (Charger)

PROPER method is to disconnect the power cord of the AC adapter, from power; THEN unplug the AC adapter from the laptop.

Same thing in reverse to plug the AC adapter back in.
AC adapter is plugged into laptop, THEN AC adapter is plugged into power.

Unplugging the AC adapter from the laptop, while being plugged into power; can cause a Voltage Spike.

You may get away with it for years, and several laptops; and have no problems.

However it only takes ONCE, to fry out the SMD fuses, Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors, and Power MOSFET's, on the laptop motherboard's DC to DC circuit.

Jus sayin'.

Moving on........

AC adapter removed, remove the Battery.
Press the Power On button in, and hold in for a count of 10 seconds.
Let go.
Do this procedure 2 more times.

(Draining residual power)

Reinstall the Battery. Attach the AC adapter, plug AC adapter into power. Let the Battery charge 24 hours.
Then turn the laptop on, and tell me what happened.

Nc6000 multibay battery does not recharge


Perhaps remove the multi-bay battery, and let main battery charge all the way. Then reattach multi-bay battery, and see if it's recognized.
(Will charge)

That is AC adapter (Charger) removed, then remove multi-bay battery.
Plug AC adapter back into laptop, THEN plug AC adapter into power.

[You do Not want to unplug an AC adapter from a laptop, with the AC adapter plugged into power. Could be a power surge/voltage spike. Unplug AC adapter from power, when plugging into laptop, or unplugging from laptop ]

Main battery charged, unplug power to AC adapter, unplug AC adapter from laptop. Plug multi-bay battery in, then AC adapter.
(Then plug AC adapter into power)

Advent modena m200 will not turn on or charge.


Connect the AC power adapter to the laptop and confirm that the AC power indicator is on (I wish you stated the brand of laptop). If the AC power indicator is not on, try and get a working AC power adapter for your laptop and connect it to your laptop.

With the AC power adapter connected, you can power on your laptop. If the laptop powers on from the OS you can see if the Battery is charging or not.
If the laptop does not power with the AC power adapter connected, then the power port of the laptop is bad.

However, if all these are okay and the battery still does not charge, the battery is faulty and will need to be replaced.

Dell Inspiron 1521 battery not charging


Laptop batteries power a laptop when it is not connected to an electrical outlet. If the laptop battery fails to charge when the laptop is plugged into an electrical outlet, the battery is likely dead and needs to be replaced. Unfortunately there is no way to fix a dead battery. However, while a dead battery is the likely cause, it is not the only cause. The AC adapter may be broken, in which case the battery won't charge, or the battery contacts may be dirty and need cleaning. Prior to replacing the battery, perform simple tasks to ensure a dead battery is the cause of the problems.

1.Power down the laptop. Gently pull the AC adapter from the side of the laptop for removal.

2.Place the laptop in front of you, bottom side up. Locate the battery release mechanism. This can be a button that slides or needs to be pushed to unlock or release the laptop battery from the housing unit. Press or slide the mechanism. Slide or lift the battery from the battery bay for removal.

3.Insert the AC adapter into the side of the laptop. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not power on, ensure the AC adapter is securely plugged into a working electrical outlet. If the electrical outlet is working and the laptop won't power on, the AC adapter is not properly working and needs to be replaced. Remove the AC adapter.

4.Dip a cotton swab in a small amount of rubbing alcohol. The cotton swab should be damp, not dripping wet. Lightly rub the dampened cotton swab onto the battery contacts and battery bay contacts to remove dust, buildup and grime. Allow the contacts to air dry.

5.Align the battery over the battery bay. Either press or slide into place. A clicking or snapping noise produced from the locking mechanism will confirm the laptop battery is securely locked into place.

6.Install the AC adapter. Allow the AC adapter to fully charge the battery for 8 hours.

7.Remove the AC adapter. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not power on, the battery needs to be replaced.

Approximately 5 weeks ago I started getting the message when on AC power that the "smart AC adapter is not providing enough power" (something like that anyway!) And even though plugged in would...


first, you need to try to power on your laptop with another battery with the AC adaptor plugged in. if your problem was not solved you need to check the power jack on your mothernorad.

No power to the laptop when plugged in


Hi,
Turn the laptop off and remove the battery and AC power. Clean the brass contacts on the battery and the laptop.
Plug in AC power only and see if the laptop boots up without the battery, go into the BIOS and set the BIOS to default settings. Save the changes and let the laptop boot into Windows. Once in Windows power down the laptop again and remove the AC power.
Reinsert the battery and AC power and boot the laptop up. See if that has helped.


Good luck.

Laptop battery not charging wanna know how to run without battery


The problem you described here shows that, the case is not likely to be a battery problem, but the laptop AC-Adapter (Charger) problem, because, the red light you are seeing shows that your battery has rundown, and even when you plug-in the adapter to AC, it still blinks red, showing that the AC-Power is not charging it. I would suggest that you get another Laptop AC-Adapter (The Charger), or try it with a friend's own first, then you'll see that the problem might not be with your battery but your AC-Adapter

Will not boot up or turn on though it is getting power


The Charger could be bad, Try replacing that, or let charge, then try to turn on. The laptop might not boot with AC power. kinda stupid but maybe. If that doesn't work, the AC adapter is bad.
