Thinkloko,
With the power off and the system unplugged, connect the AC adapter to the system to see if the system powers up. If so, then the battery will need to be replaced. You can call the Dell Spare Parts Department at 1-877-717-3355 to check the price for a battery.
Thank You,

What does a orange power light mean


please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.

Mydell 5160 has a yellow blinking light on the front 1st from right. any suggestion on cause or solutions.


It is the battery Status indicator and flasing orange light indicates that battery is low. After connecting the charger it should turn solid green, which indicates that the battery is charging and it turns off when battery is charged completely.
If it continously blinks, check out the charger and battery.

I have a Dell Inspirion 1525. I have a fairly new after market replacement battery which I have only had now for 4 months. I am using Vista. As soon as I unplug, computer shuts down. I go to power settings...


The adapter is working correctly. The battery is either slow to charge or in need of replacement.

It's possible your battery isn't charging at all so to test this boot into bios -> battery status and watch it run overnight.

I have a Dell Inspirion 1525. The Battery would not charge and the light would flash orange. I bought a new one and upgraded from a 6 cell to a 9. Now it says plugged in but not charging and the batt light...


Hello,

Firstly, i suggest you try to use the charger with a similar laptop to see if it will charge it.

If it does, it means the charger is still very much good.

And as for the battery you change, it will be better for you you to check the voltage rate on your charger and the voltage rate on the battery because it is very possible, the voltage rate of your charger might not be able to power your new battery.

The voltage of the new battery might be higher than what the battery could power, so you might need to get the same voltage rating of charger for the new battery.

**** you can still test the charger with a similar laptop to be sure the charger is still good.

Take care.

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon


If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

Can't charge battery or run off AC


You may have a problem in the DC charge circuitry. These parts are located on the moatherboard directly and can't be bought separately and repaired. You must send your Dell to a specialised service to have it fixed by them. Sorry, I can't see no other way for this problem to be solved.
