Panasonic Toughbook PC Laptops usually have
very reliable battery pack. When your unit is plugged-in
but the Power is OFF, you should see an LED light as follows:
RED FLASHING: Means the battery needs replacement.
Orange/Yellow Solid: Means battery is charging.
Solid Green: Means battery is fully charged.
NO Light AT ALL: Means that Battery Pack is missing.

There is also a battery calibration utility on all Panasonic
Toughbook PC's manufactured since 2004. This is a factory
installed software and is only present in factory units.

This software may also be downloaded as a driver from the
Panasonic Toughbook website as follows:

http://pc-dl.panasonic.co.jp/dl/

Check also in the bottom right hand corner under
Windows for the battery Icon. This will indicate if
the battery is charging, present or not present,
and under Windows 7+ will indicate if the battery
needs to be replaced or not.

Good Luck!
Regards,
Richard - Montreal Based
Panasonic Toughbook Authorized Dealer since 1989.

I plug the laptop in and it wont charge the battery that I just puchased if I unplug it it dies if i plug it in and take the battery out it dies I purchased a new 95W adapter same thing


Sounds that the power receptacle in your laptop is either loose or damaged. You will need to disassemble the laptop in order to re-solder it or replace it if it is severely damaged.

Battery light blinking red during charging


Dell or Panasonic? Your post has both listed.

If the blinking light on a Dell is yellow or amber or orange (somewhere in that color range) and continues to blink the entire time it is plugged into AC power (wall outlet) and when you unplug it from the wall the laptop immediately dies .... then you battery is dead and needs replaced.

If the blinking light stops after a while (perhaps a minute?) and then turns green while plugged into AC power, then it is successfully charging - or so it thinks.

When you unplug it from the wall, does it stay up and running?
If it runs, it's OK - just ignore the light and plan on getting a new battery one day, start browsing now. :)
If it dies immediately upon unplugging, then your battery is dead and needs replaced.

Computer dies FAST when unplugged even though power may register 100% befor unplugging also laptop does not seem to recognize battery properly . battery power goes from 100% to 35% overnight if unplug


You have a dead battery or the charging circuit is faulty. If you have had the battery since you purchased the laptop, then it is worn out and needs to be replaced.

Dell C800 Laptop dies when unplugged


Check the pins that connects the computer to the battery. Something might be bent and wouldn't make contact with the battery. Turn the system on with both the battery and ac adapter plugged in. Press F12 on the Dell splash screen. Go to Page 4 (press ALT-P to move to pages). Check if the battery is detected. If not then the motherboard needs to be replaced.

You can contact Dell Spare Parts dept: 1-800-357-3355. Just give them the service tag of the system so they'll know the part number of the motherboard.

If you think this is helpful, please rate it.
