Plugged in not charging


There could be several things wrong. You could have a broken DC jack on your motherboard. To prove this, wiggle the DC jack with the adapter plugged in. If the charging light comes on when you wiggle the jack, then your jack is broken. You could also have a defective AC adapter.

How to troubleshoot your laptop at start


When you plug in the power adapter and press on the power button, there is no signs of life at all. The laptop will not make usual noises, LEDs will not light up, the fan will not spin, the screen is blank and black, etc… In short, the laptop is dead. What you can do in this case?
1. Make sure the wall outlet is working and the laptop DC adapter is getting power from the outlet. Try another wall outlet.
2. Test the laptop DC power adapter, make sure the voltage output is correct. You can test the DC power adapter with a voltmeter.
3. Let’s say the DC adapter is fine and the adapter outputs correct voltage. In this case unplug the power adapter from the laptop, remove the battery, wait for 1-2 minutes, plug in the adapter and try turning on the laptop again.
OK, you tested the adapter and it’s bad. If you decide to replace the original DC adapter with a generic one, you’ll have to follow this rule:
The voltage output on your new adapter has to be exactly the same as on the original adapter. The amperage on the new adapter could be the same or higher.
If nothing helps and the laptop is still dead, apparently the motherboard is fried or there is a problem with the DC power jack. It’s possible the DC power jack is broken and the motherboard is not getting any power from the adapter. In this case you’ll have to disassemble the laptop and replace the power jack.

Dell latitude d510 has no power


Please check out the following steps to confirm the real issue:
1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

I think the most likely cause is that your dell charger is broken, just try a new charger to test:

AC adapter power connection LED blinks but not charging


This suggests to me that you need to check out the AC adapter, and see if there is an intermittent short. In otherwords a break in the wires.

AC adapter unplugged from laptop, and power, remove the AC power cord from the body of the AC adapter.

Use a multimeter set to OHM's, (1K), and connect the Positive (Red) probe lead to one of the flat bladed prongs, in the power plug that plugs into the surge protector.

Touch the Negative (Black) probe lead to one of the holes in the plug, that goes into the AC adapter 'body'.
Keep going from hole to hole, until you get a reading.
Now have an assistant gently wiggle the power cable, and see if you get an intermittent reading.

Do the same for the other plug's flat bladed prong.
Intermittent reading means replace the power cable, or if more feasible, the entire AC adapter.

Power cable proves to be fine, move on.
Plug the power cable back into the AC adapter. Plug the AC adapter into power.
Using a multimeter set to DC Voltage, touch the Positive (Red) probe lead of the multimeter, to the center hole of the plug that goes into the laptop.
(If just a symbol, the DC Voltage symbol is a dotted line over a solid line)

The Negative (Black) probe lead, touches the outside cylindrical metal shell, of the plug.
Have an assistant gently wiggle the cable, and see if there is an intermittent reading on the multimeter.
(Reading should be 18.5 Volts DC)

[There are Analog multimeters which have a scale, and a needle, and Digital multimeters that just have a digital readout.
If using an Analog multimeter the needle will drop towards 0.
If using a Digital multimeter the readout will drop to smaller numbers, or 0 ]

AC adapter checks out? Go on.

The port on your laptop where the AC adapter plugs in, is the DC Power Jack.
AC adapter unplugged from laptop, Battery removed.
Take a pencil, and gently use the eraser end to see if you can wiggle, the center pin of the DC Power Jack.

ANY perceptible movement means a problem with the DC Power Jack.
The GOOD news is that the DC Power Jack, is NOT soldered directly to the motherboard.

It slides down in a Channel on the outside edge of the Base Enclosure, and has a wiring harness coming from it.
The end of the wiring harness has a plug, that plugs into the motherboard.

The HP part number for this DC Power Harness is HP 600630-001

A) http://www.dectrader.com/600630-001-New-HP-DC-input-power-socket-connector-With-cable.html#.UD0_w6B0k9Q

B) http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Compaq-600630-001-DC-Power-Input-Jack-Cable-CQ42-G42-Notebook-Series-/180932154005?_trksid=p4340.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D11%26meid%3D1653940420718665976%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D1005%26rk%3D1%26

This is a link to a free Service Manual from HP Support,

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02627955.pdf

Page 73 is for the Power Connector Cable.

No damage to the DC Power Jack, and the harness is not slightly unplugged?
Now you have real problems.

You have a bad Power MOSFET,

However it doesn't take a rocket scientist to replace. (Sorry Gort)
These SMD's use a J-lead contact. Simple unsoldering, and soldering.

(Better be fast though as you don't want to overheat a power transistor. Better be good, because you don't want any cold solder joints)

Advent N270 netbook will not charge. Orange light comes on initially then goes off. Also when I wiggle the plug into the laptop the light flashes on and intermittently.


It sounds like either a bad connection on the motherboard or a broken wire in the adapter making intermittent connection.

1. With the power adapter disconnected, do you have a power light? This would indicate the adapter is good and the plug is questionable.

2. Check your power adapter output with a multi-meter.(be sure to wiggle the wires around) If the power fluctuates, replace the plug.

3. If the power is solid, replace the motherboard connector.
