Have you tried removing the battery and if possible plugging the correct power supply directly into the camera, im not sure if you can do so but if you can i would try that if it does turn on and work then you just fried your battery if you are able to do so and it does not turn on i would say you fried the camera and if it is under warranty send it back for repairs.

My compaq cq40 laptop charger is not working


Before you make a decision about the next step, maybe you would like to know why the laptop charger is not working. Here are some commonly found reasons for this problem.
  • You have been using the wrong laptop charger for your machine, or someone else has been using your laptop charger for another machine. This may seem like a harmless act, but it affects the battery on your laptop, and charger you are using as well.
  • Your laptop battery has become weak and worn out from excessive use. Due to this the battery is not charging at all (or charging very slowly) when you plug in the charger. In this case there is absolutely nothing wrong with the charger itself.
  • The wire of the laptop charger has got a distinct curve at one point, and this is restricting it from transmitting power. You need to look out for such bends in the wire, as this will ruin the efficiency of the charger in no time.
  • This may sound elemental and stupid to some, but it does happen to many people. Maybe you are simply using the wrong laptop charger by mistake, or maybe you have failed to switch on the power switch. Check both these things to be sure.
Any of these potential causes could be the reason behind your laptop charger not working. As a result of these, either the mains power lead of your charger may be damaged, or the power supply unit may be damaged, or maybe the lead itself is damaged or broken somewhere, or some circuitry inside the laptop is damaged, and not responding to the charger. It's hard to accurately tell which of these problems could be the real cause of your laptop battery not charging, without physically examining the machine.

Solutions and Answers

Now if you are well versed in computer hardware you can attempt to fix this yourself. Most people cannot do this, and it is advisable for them to visit a computer repair shop instead.

I am traveling to italy. My sony dvd 101 handycam


In Europe and other countries the voltages are higher and you'll need an adapter to plug your charger into.
You can usually find them sold at department stores near or in the luggage section.

I have a thinkpad t40 that won't start, the battery light doesn't come on i just bought the charger and it won't do anything. please help


The charger you purchased - is it new or used? Are you positive the charger is working? I would see if you can obtain another charger that you know is good and connect. There are universal chargers that you can buy locally for a low price. Also double check to make sure you have a good battery. laptop batteries usually last 1-2 years.

Ibm a31 0190 erroe


Error 0190 means you need to charge your battery. Either your battery is not charging properlty or your charger is not working anymore. If the computer works while plugged in and gives no error then it would be the battery that needs replacing. If the battery is a few years old then you may want to order a replacement. The Thinkpad A31 uses the ThinkPad Ultrabay 2000 Li-Ion Battery. You can purchase a replacement battery from this website:

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?GroupID=38&Code=02K6646&current-category-id=4364BD0F20B94413B5AD6E684D2848E9

If the laptop doesn't work while plugged in and you dont get any lights on the battery or power indicator on the front of the laptop then you may need a replacement. Depending on which region you are in you will need a different A/C adapter. You can find a list of different A/C adapters here.The A31 uses the 72 watt power adapters on this page:

I hope this helps.

BATTERIE


There is no setting to change, Thinkpad batteries work and charge automatically.

If the battery does not work, either the battery is faulty, or there is a fault in the battery charger contacts , inside the battery slot.

the most likely is a defective battery.

Go back to the shop and ask to test the battery on a different thinkpad, if battery works, then there is a bad contact in laptop battery slot. If it doesn't, then the seller must replace the battery.
