If you leave the old type NiCad batteries on charge all of the time, they will barely last a year. Run the battery down at least once a month.

SOURCE: My notebook's battery doesn't last

your battery cells are dying to over charging coz its system is similar to that of a cell phone, but in future you will need to buy an extra battery.
Thank you.

Did you press the FN hold it down and do the brightness? If you did then you need a new keyboard replacement. John

SOURCE: SAMSUNG NP R430 POWER JACK

There is something seriously wrong with the power jack for it to get very hot. I doubt replacing the power jack will fix this problem. The laptop needs to be repaired by a specialist.

SOURCE: samsung NP-R480l laptop not charging

When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Hi, my Samsung laptop v25 does not hold battery charge. I have replaced the battery with new one but it still does not hold it. thanks for help.


Is it charging? Does it Fully Charge? When you say "not holding a charge", how long are we talking about? Minutes, Hours? Battery life depends on what your doing and what is running and other factors, Some aftermarket batteries aren't very good. Inexpensive batteries are cheap for a reason.

Samsung n145 will not power up


Related to a Samsung Np-n145 Notebook PC:

Plug the laptop into power for 24 hours. See if the Battery charges up.

Next test, or have tested, the AC adapter (Charger) See if it is putting out 19 Volts -> DC.
Know someone with a multimeter? I can guide you in testing.

AC adapter is good? Things go downhill rapidly here.
The next problem could be a DC Power Jack.

The DC Power jack is the jack on the laptop, that you plug the AC adapter into,

1) The DC Power jack may be broken
2) The solder joints holding it to the motherboard may be cracked. Poor connection to motherboard.

The DC Power jack can be replaced, or it's solder joints re-soldered.

DC Power jack proves to be okay?

Let's hope it's a bad AC adapter

My Samsung N145 Battery does not power the notebook


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

When i pull out the power cord on my N150 plus the comp crashes,even though the battery is saying 100 per cent..any idea?


A lot of times this happens when the battery has gone bad and needs to be replaced. It might say 100%, but due to use (and sometimes just due to a faulty battery) the battery will charge less and less and eventually won't hold a charge at all. For example, when I first got my laptop a year and a half ago, I could get almost six hours out of a charge. Now I get almost twenty minutes. Unfortunately, I would say you need a battery. You can get one either from samsung (though you may have to call them, I couldn't find your battery on the site), Newegg.com, or ebay.com.

Some good tips for handling your new battery. First, if the computer's plugged in, remove the battery. Put it back in before you unplug it. This will prevent long-term wear on your battery. Secondly, it's good to regularly (I'd say yearly or so) let your computer "die" on battery (run it until the battery dies), then charge it completely THREE TIMES. This will "cycle" your battery. They say that with the newer batteries used nowadays this isn't an issue, because the new type of battery doesn't create the crystals like the older type does, but it can't hurt anything and I've noticed a difference when I do it.

I'm sorry about the bad news, but hopefully this will help!

My fine pix z20 won't stay on after charging. As soon as I turn it on...it shuts down. We've charged it for several hours and we have replaced the memory card as well.


All rechargeable batteries eventually die and fail to hold a charge- that may be your problem. Unfortuantely the NP-45 (also used in some Olympus cameras as a LI-40b)  battery is not common to lots of other cameras, so you may have to go to camera store that sells Fuji cameras and ask to put your charged battery in one of their cameras- if it does the same thing there as it does with your camera- it's definitely the battery- if it runs strong for a while, you have some type of problem in your camera or charger that needs fixing

Battery life?


Here is a replacement source

The batteries are covered under warranty for three years. Sony batteries are know for not keeping a good charge after a few years.

If there not holding a charge, they wouldn't appear on the LCD screen at all. I the AC power is working fine, then that probably isn't the source for not getting a charge.

You could try lightly scraping the contacts on the battery and see if that makes a difference and recharge them.
