Error occurred regarding battery

My battery light is flashing even though I am connected to A/c power. How do I get it to stop?

    The computer works fine, just the battery light is incessantly blinking yellow when the computer is off or on, plugged into the wall. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and the blinking stopped, along with a high pitched "dinging" that I hadn't realized was coming from the power box on the cord.



    I guess I need to know if this was a weird glitch, or a larger problem that could result in disaster?

Laptops don't powerup either because the battery isn't full, or it isn't plugged to the mains using the lead. if you think the above is fine then it must be because the laptops isn't accepting power in, either because of the motherboard has died, the chips have burned or the power button is faulty. if it's working using the battery but not using the charger then you need a DC socket repair. if it's plugged to the mains but there is no sign of any lights you're likely to have lost your motherboard. if your laptop does start but you see nothing on the screen its usualy the memory ram or the screen or the motherboard, plug it into an external screen and see what happens

this isn't something you can find a solution for in here, the best way is to take it to your repair shop
an independent one will do, or else I recommend a website which collects it and does it for you

Why does the light fladh green and then stay green even though there is no battery in it!?


If you can remove the battery, remove it.. Wait about 30 seconds+ Then place the battery back in and try charging it again. This is a solution that fixes quite a high percentage of battery related issues.
EVEN works with laptops. Hope this helps. So many other issues could be wrong with your phone or source of power.. Good luck.

Fast flashing green light when trying to charge


usually fast flashing charge is faulty battery its trying to get volts in to the battery. you see the battery has a charging board on the battery not in the camera the camera sends the volts to the battery and the battery tells the camera its voltage, and when at the right volts stops charging. but these batteries can only be charged to around 10000hrs depending on the type of battery. you see when you get a new battery you need to charge it before use, now this can be 6hrs to 12hrs for fist time use if you interrupted the charge or have a power cut while it charges it can damage the charging chip in the battery. if this does the flashing light on other batteries then the signal is not being read by the camera and the camera can be faulty on the charging circuit, usually (sometimes) removing the battery for a few hours can fix this but it will rest the camera. hope this helps you.

2004 Toyota Sienna horn blows and lights flash for no reason, then stop for a few minutes and repeat again.


If a critical supply is removed, (relay that feeds?) then the alarm will think the car has been tampered with.

My Acer Aspire 6530-5753 laptop stopped charging the battery even though the power supply light was on--it's an aftermarket charger from Radio Shjack. The battery ran dead and it wouldn't run on...


This is not the motherboard. The batteries in laptops have electronic sensors in them. When they reach the end of life, they stop the computer from turning on. Once that happens it wont power on with the battery in or out. Batteries are not that expensive. Only about 25 dollars.

Earlier my laptop shut down with no warning even though the charger was all connected and plugged in. now even though the charger is plugged in everytime i try to turn it back on the needs to be charged...


This could be caused by several things, but try the obvious first. I just bought a brand new power supply, and in less than a week the customer called and said it stopped working. I suggested she take the cord from the old charger and try it - it worked - the brand new cord lasted less than a week. The other thing that could cause this is a bad connection on the end of the power supply, going into the computer. It could even be a bad power supply.The last thing I can think of is a bad battery that won't hold a charge.

I cant solve your problem, but I have a problem with my "hot" light coming on. I left my lights on for 3 weeks, so my battery was junked. When I replaced the battery my fan kicks on with just the turn of the key, and the hot light flashes even though the engine has'nt been running. Polaris 08

Should my HP510 laptop work without a battery


Yes your laptop should power on with just AC power. The issue could be a loose connection for the AC power which caused the battery to stop being able to charge also. Unfortunately only solution for that if it is incase the problem is to open the laptop and have the power connector re soldered onto the board.

Keyboard not responding


Solution. My wireles keyboard stopped working except for the F-Lock key, the Media key and the sleep key. It wasn't batteries, even though I tried, communication was there because the above keys were working. Remove the batteries from your keyboard and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Press the red connect button a few times and other various keys every few minutes during that time. This may be the whole "capacitor discharge" trick, but I tired that with someone elses instructions and my keyboard did not work after 2 minutes of key pressing. I think it just needed more time to clear out the secure settings. Good luck, I was about to trash this keyboard until I tried again

No POWER ON out-of-the-box & after initial battery charging.


Even if the battery is dead it should still be able to boot on external power.  I think the best bet, though slow, would be warranty.
