SOURCE: My ibook won't charge. Everything

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

To help with getting your battery to charge, try resetting the PMU

-PMU RESET-
The Power Manager (PMU) is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is usually on the logic board of your Mac computer.

It is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

• If the computer is on, turn it off.
• Now refer to this article from Apple.com Support
Resetting the PMU for Powerbook and iBooks

If this process does not help to allow your battery to charge normally, you more than likely have a battery which may be either dead or eventually will die in its charge capability.

What I would recommend if that is the case, would be to consider purchasing a new battery from Apple or via a third party reseller like online Apple authorized resellers like Amazon.com, MacMall.com or Fry's Electronics for example. You may also Google with keywords "purchase iBook battery " and shop for the best priced iBook battery.

Again, you would only consider the latter, if the former procedure listed above does not help.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Mactechtrainer

I have a hp compaq6535b and i'm having power cord/charging issues. i initially thought that it was just a power cord issue but i borrowed an iGo universal power cord from a co-worker and for a few days it...


The component that you refer to inside the computer is called a 'jack', not a plug. The problem with the connection to the jack is that there is no mechanical connection from it to the circuit board--just the three solder connections and they usually will tear the copper traces going to the jack. A proper fix is to epoxy the jack to the board for mechanical support and use short sections of wire to bypass the broken circuit runs. As far as the intermittent computer actions are concerned, don't change the power plug in or out without shutting the computer down temporarily. Does the overheating occur just when the charger is connected and is it around the battery area? If so, the battery itself may be getting electrically leaky causing the heat. This may mean replacement time for the battery in the future. You might limit the charging time to just enough to keep the battery fully charged. Hope this helps!

Have a Gateway Laptop Computer Model #MT6708. Previously computer had blank screen and no power. Currently purchased new battery and power cord. Computer now operating screen and power is on. However, when...


First thing check that the battery charge light is on when the battery and the charger are connected.
If it is it indicates that the power supply is charging the battery,
If it isnt it may indicate a fault with the battery or that the charger is not compatable with the laptop or that there is a fault with the charger.
If the battery is charging then try running the laptop on battery only without the charger and on charger only without the battery.
This will eliminate which one is faulty.

You mentioned that if you wiggle the cord then the light comes on again.
Check to see if the charger end plug is lose or the actual port on the laptop is lose.
If the charger plug is lose then return to seller and make sure they gave you the correct charger. if the actual port on laptop is lose then perhaps u got a bad connection and you need electrician or local laptop technician to open it up and solder properly on motherboard.

Let me know how it goes.

Acer laptop won't charge.


When you finally get the charge light to come on, does the battery get fully charged? How long can it run while not plugged in?
A junker will not charge properly, or hold a charge for a short period of time. If this is the case, time to get a new battery.
If the battery seems to charge fine and the uptime is acceptable take a look at the charger and connectors, make sure their clean and free of debris. Maybe try to locate someone with the same charger and see if the problem continues (Some computer shops may have your charger)

Completely white/gray screen


First try this: shut it down, disconnect the power cord, pull out the battery, then hold the power button for a full 10 seconds. Reinstall the battery, reattach the power cord, turn it back on.
Still doing it? Put the reboot disk that your Mac came with, or the disk to the version of Mac OS X that you're running.
To start from disk hold "C" as your Mac is first turning on from a complete shutdown.

Power problem


I don't think you are dealing with a short in your system. Your battery is probably dead and/or needs to be charged. See if your new power cord will work and will turn your computer on. Make sure that you have the exact power cord that your specific system calls for, because not all laptop power cords are the same. I mean you can't just use any laptop power cord; it has to be one that is rightly built specifically for your laptop system.

Ds lite charging lite comes on but when i press power button nothing happens


Are you leaving the DS charge until the light comes off? Remember that there are two likes too, one for charging and one for power. If you're just charging for some random period of time (lets say... One hour) then your Battery isn't going to be fully charged. The best way to ensure that your DS Lite is charged is to leave it charge until the charge light turns off. You can play your DS Lite while you are charging (I do it all the time), but it just means that you're just running off of the outlet.

A good test is to charge it fully (until the charge light comes off), unplug the charger cord (Make sure it's secured tightly to your DS while charging), then play for a little bit, your light should be a normal color (green).

If you cannot even play by using the outlet, then you need to
find a charger cord that actually works (You may need to send in the charger for replacement). If the same thing happens with 2 different batteries (assuming that you have two official Nintendo batteries).

TIP: Also run your fingers across the Charger cord. You're going to get a slight friction burn from the rubber, but you're going to get all of the kinks out of the wire in the cord. My charger cord had a similar problem (did not charge all the way, only charged until I moved the DS) but when I ran my fingers across it (pinching) it worked again.

Also check the pins in both charger cords, charging will not work if one pin is missing, nor if any are bent.
