HP Elitebook 2530 Pindicator says battery charging but battery not charging


Could be a back power brick or DC jack yes. Power off the computer and remove the battery. With the battery out plug in just the power brick and turn on the computer. If the computer doesn't power on gently wiggle the plug into the laptop and repeatedly hit the power button if it comes on briefly then off again you dc jack is loose. If it doesn't come on at all then its the power brick. If the laptop comes on gently wiggle the plug into the PC. Powers off while wiggling DC jack.

Is not charging battery


If the laptop works with the AC Adapter Power Cord ok without any problems except the battery is not charging, then the battery is dead. Batteries only have a useful life, then they have to be replaced.

If the laptop does not work with the AC Adapter Power Cord then either the Power Cord is bad or the DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop is bad. If either of these is bad, a good battery will not charge.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

I always get plugged in not charging when i charge my laptop even when it is not fully charged


If the laptop works fine off the power cord without any problems then your power cord is ok, but if the battery is not charging then the battery is probably dead and needs to be replaced. Batteries only have a useful life, and when it's over they have to be replaced.

If the laptop does not work with the power cord then either the power cord is bad or the DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop. If either of them is bad the battery will not charge.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad.

Does the laptop work with just the power cord plugged in? If so, that means your power cord is ok and if your battery is not taking a charge then the battery is dead. Batteries only have a useful life, then they have to be replaced.

If you laptop is having issues staying on or booting up with the power cord then either your power cord is bad or the DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop is bad. Either one will cause the battery not to charge.

Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Inspiron 1525: "plugged in, not charging"


Not charging means the battery is not being charged. Batteries only have a useful life of so long, then they die and will not take a charge so you have to replace them.

If the laptop works fine when the power cord is plugged in, then just replace the battery. if the laptop does not work on the power cord, then you need to either replace the power cord or look to see if the DC Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop is broken or wiggles. When the DC Jack it bad the battery will not charge and eventually the laptop will not turn on if the power cord can't make the connection correctly.

Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

My new laptop battery is not charging


Maybe the battery is bad. Just because it's new does not mean it will work.

Does your laptop power on and work with the AC Adapter and Power Cord? If not, that is why your battery is not charging. You need a New AC Adapter & Power Cord or the DC Jack where the Power Cord plugs into the laptop is bad or broken.

I have an Acer Aspire One and when I plug the charger in I have to spin it or wiggle it or both to get the battery to charge. Once I have it in position it generally stays on charge, but if the cable is...


It could be either one Sarah.

The AC adapter's (Charger) cable, or the DC Power Jack where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop.

This is an example of the DC Power Jack not installed,

http://www.laptopjacks.com/view_part/Acer-Aspire-ONE-AOA150-ZG5-DC-Power-Jack-AC351816.html

(You can click on the three views of the jack to enlarge)

1) Check the DC Power Jack to see if it's in good repair.

Battery removed use a small flat tipped screwdriver, and Gently see if you can move the Center Pin around in the jack.
See if the Center Pin will move side to side a small amount. There is supposed to be No perceptible movement.

Referring back to the closeup photos of the DC Power Jack, the flat blade-like prongs are upside down, in relation to how the jack sits on the motherboard.

The flat prongs go down through the motherboard, and are soldered to the motherboard.
If the center pin of the jack is stationary, but the jack as a unit moves around, one or more solder joints, (Connections) for the flat prongs may be cracked.

The repair consists of completely disassembling the laptop, removing the broken DC Power Jack, and installing a new one.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name (One) it may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

(Took 12 seconds just now for full download)

No perceptible movement of the DC Power Jack? Suspect the cable of the AC adapter right near it's plug. (Plug that plugs into the DC Power Jack)

There are a few things left you can try. First take the battery out and make sure the unit is unplugged. Next push the power button a few times to discharge any power inside the unit. Now put the battery back in and while plugging in the unit see if the charge light comes on or flickers at all.

If it flickers and goes out, you have a bad power cord or worse a bad jack on the laptop's main board. If it never comes on, you have a bad power cord or mainboard. The battery is probably dead (doesen't have a charge left in it.)

You said this happens regardless of if the battery is inserted. Have you tried powering up the unit with no battery installed and just the power plug?

I'd see about gettting a replacement cord first. If that doesen't do it you probably have a bad board.

Dell Inspiron 1505; Battery does not charge; DC jack is loose..


You have either a faulty connector plug on the power adapter which connects into the laptop or the loose power input socket on the laptop is faulty. This is because you need to press the connector upwards to make electrical contact.
Test the connectot plug on the power adapter with a multi-meter, wriggle the connector to see if your get the voltage to fluctuate, if it does not then the connector is OK anf the fault is in the laptop power input socket.
If the fault is in the power adapter plug or the laptop's power input socket, this can be repaired, a techo would have no trouble in repairing these faults.

New battery will not take charge


Check the powers supply for output voltage, as it could be faulty. You should also make sure that the DC plug to DC jack connection is good.
