I have been working on a Sony Vaio PCG-K35 with the same problem. I replaced the motherboard and the problems still continued until I plugged it into a Sony power supply. Once I did that there was no problems and it now runs fine. The reason why I think it worked was because the Sony power supplies give the laptop more juice maybe? Anyway I hope that this little paragraph was able to help you out just a little bit.

May the force be with you!

When you plug it in, does it show that the battery is charging? If not, then the DC Power socket has failed on the laptop, so a new power supply would not fix the problem.

The manufacturer will tell you to replace the motherboard, however the DC power sockets are readily available, and relatively easy to fit.

Acer aspire 4339 wont turn on with new battery


That means the laptop is not detecting the battery as authentic or full enough to boot the laptop. Most batteries are now smart batteries, so the battery you bought may be an aftermarket battery not supported by the laptop. Return it and cite the issue.

TomTom Rider unit wont charge. Tried mains charger, USB connector and bike charger. Swapped out the battery and the unit boots up but that is just the charge in the new battery. Any help appreciated.


Power board is faulty, repair or replace. Workshop repair required. Oh, stop plugging a charger into the USB socket. It doesn'tlike it, thats for data transfer only. The round pin socket is the charger port

Charged the battery,and the cammera still wont turn on


Hello, Quite possibly the battery is a few years old and has lost the capacity to power the unit on,these type batteries become weak over time and the unit requires quite a bit of power to boot the camera,only solution is try a new battery that has been charged for at least 4 hours.Hope this solves your problem,the battery is very cheap on E-Bay,Battery is KLIC-5001.
Best Regards,Russell

My toshiba r10 laptop wont turn on the green power light to the front is on but the yellow battery light only comes onn when i plug in the power cord to it and it only stays about 2 seconds


Ok here's what you will do

1) Unplug the notebook from the ac adapter (charger power cord)

2) Take off the battery pack on the notebook

3) Once the ac adapter and battery is off the notebook, hold down the power button for 15 seconds

4) After 15 seconds, let go of the power button

5) Now plug in the AC ADAPTER (OR CHARGER POWER CORD) ONLY (DO NOT PUT BACK THE BATTERY PACK)

6) Now press the power button once.

7) If the unit boots, the unit suffered a slight surge

8) If the unit does not boot and remains dead, the unit suffered a severe surge and may be burned out and needs replacing

I hope this helps and let me know how it goes afterwards

try pulling the hard drive out. boot the unit if it boots your drive is the problem. if you have replaced the battery and cord . also first try removing the battery and plug into wall and boot unit. if it boots up then you may want to see if anything is fried that connects to the battrery.

My dell inspirion won't start-up, I just replaced the Cmos battery, and I also bought a new battery[kd476, 85w] If I try to boot with or without the battery, same thing happens. After pressing the power...


Display could be bad, try plugging in an external PC display to verify it.
Other than that it may be the main board is bad.
Some older laptops and PC's had issues with capacitors going bad and would fail to boot.
There was a recall but I'm sure that expired now.
If it's new and under warranty contact www.dell.com to get an RMA to send it in.

The light thats a lock with the letter a starts blinking and it wont boot up. how do i fix this


The blinking light is just a status for the caps light. If the unit does not power on or boot , you may have
A) a low or bad battery, Take the battery out and try to power up just by plugging the unit into the outlet.

B) If that does not work, You may have a loose DC connector on the system board. Unplug the plug from the outlet, then slightly wiggle the connector at the back of the laptopwhere the adapter plugs in. If it moves , the connector is loose on the MLB.


The blue lights located above the keyboard indicate the following:
about27.jpg
Turns on when the numeric keypad is enabled.
about28.jpg
Turns on when the uppercase letter (caps lock) function is enabled.
about29.jpg
Turns on when the scroll lock function is enabled.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
