Battery icon flickering when plugged in

The battery icon on my Dell Inspiron 6000 flickers (orange light) when it is plugged in. On screen, however, it does not seem to be using battery power but the orange light is very persistent, and as soon as I unplug the charger, the computer turns off.

This is common within your product series. i actually havent seen one that doesnt do that. it either means the battery is dead or the motherboard is bad. and im starting to lean tword motherboard only because this is such a comon problem. and even after people buy new batteries, it still does it. so i believe its your motherboard.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 the battery light was blinking orange and wouldnt come on so listening to an expert i bought a new battery when you first plug it in should the light still be orange??


Hi. Blinking orange light on battery indicator means it's charging. To make sure, point your mouse to the battery icon on the Taskbar located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen...near the system time and speaker icons. It should say plugged in, charging. If you see "plugged in, not charging, then you need to call Dell Phone Support for additional help.

What does it mean when lights flicker on dell inspiron 1100


Most of the time it means your battery is dead... try to unplug the battery on the bottom of the laptop and plug in the power supply. Try to turn on the computer. If it comes on, then you have a bad battery. Check eBay for a new one.

If it comes on but still flickers with the AC adapter plugged in, then you have a bad battery and it needs to be replaced.

My inspiron 6000's power flickers on and off intermittently, switching between A/C & battery power. I've replaced the power cord. Any other ideas?


Try removing batt and use ac adapter alone. Check if laptop works fine also check if LED flickers still.

Try removing ac adapter and use battery alone and check if batt flickers as well.

If flickering only happens when both are connected or vice versa try this first. Update the BIOS for your laptop. Download the BIOS update from http;//support.dell.com

Inspiron Battery Light Flashing Orange


Battery.

Dell has a chip internal to the battery programed to shut down after a certain number of charge cycles. This means every time you plug the laptop in with the battery installed. When it reaches this determined number the battery effectively shuts down, even though technically it's still good. There have been loads of complaints on the net toward Dell over this issue. I have myself experience this. Battery good one day, powered down, went home, powered up... only to receive the deadly flashing light. Only cure is to replace battery. Several hacks trying to get around this but they're all horrible. Bad Dell - bad, bad Dell!

Flashing battery icon


The machine is telling you the battery is not charging or is otherwise no good.

The battery for this unit is subject to a recall, if it has part #OU091 or W1435. This recall started in October 08. Go to:

http://www.dellbatteryprogram.com/

for more info.

Alternatively, bring your power supply to a Radio Shack, and make sure it is putting out the requisite 19V DC power.

Battery Light Flashes Orange and Green


I have had three different laptops, last one an XPS from DELL which did the same thing. Replacing the battery solved all three laptops. How old is the battery you have in there now?

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop computer and I'm experiencing a problem with the orange battery light flickering continuouslyl; though the green battery light is displayed. Thank you


I think you may be referring to the green power light and the orange hard drive activity light.you should have a power icon located on the bottom bar on the desktop near the clock that indicates battery power.

Permanent blinking icon of battery status


If the battery is blinking orange, it means there is a problem with the battery connection. Try taking the battery out, use a canned air canister and clean out the area, and connect the battery back.
If that doesn't help, there is a change that it's a power error.
