SOURCE: dell d610 latitude wont charge new battery

Hey,
First off, do you have a way to check the output of the ac adapter to ensure it's putting out the correct current?
If you've done that and have a multimeter handy, you can remove the battery, system off, and check the charge pins for current/voltage. I believe one of the end pins is neg (ground) and at least one of the other pins should show 2.6-3.6V, as well as other various voltages. If you fail to get any response at the charger pins, we'll need to look at the board circuitry, assuming again that the ac adapter is operating properly.
Good luck

Contact the manufacturer, they should be able to reference the part number from the model number of the laptop.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 1505; Battery does not charge; DC jack is loose..

The loose connection for the AC adapter means the motherboard needs to be replaced or the AC adapter jack on the motherboard needs to be replaced. (With Labor, it is about the same cost to buy a new motherboard as it is to have the old one fixed)

Motherboards are available on EBay for around $100

SOURCE: Need to replace Power Jack on motherboard for Dell 5150

its not too difficult, you just need the proper soldering stuff and the confidence to do it. On the 5150 you do have to remove the screen, keyboard, drives and worst of all, the processor in order to get to the power jack. the motherboard needs to be removed from the case so that you can get adequate access to do the job. it reminds me of changing a water pump on a car- you have to dismantle half the engine just to get to it but once your there its only 2 bolts. the hardest part is remembering where everything goes back and in what order and making sure that all the right screws go back in the right places when reassembling. it can be done in about 1-2 hours for a beginner. most computer repair places charge about $100. and if you have not already aquired the replacement jack you can find them on eBay for $6-15

If this motherboard is a multi-layer motherboard then it is impossible to repair.
You can try to repair the motherboard by glueing the broken piece onto the motherboard with epoxy glue. Then identify the broken power circuit tracks between both parts of the circuit board, and then solder wires across these tracks or to the closest solder connections to re-establish the electrical connections on the motherboard.
If this does not fix the problem then most likely it is a multi-layer motherboard and you cannot bridge the internal connection inside the motherboard.

XPS M1330 issue -- laptop won't charge battery using power adapter which has been replaced. The unit will only work with the power adapter plugged into electrical outlet. How can I tell if it is truly the...


Try another known working battery in the laptop and see if it charges, if it doesn't then its going to be a problem with hairline cracks in the dc jack on the laptop. The solder points underneath the dc jack if they have hairline cracks in them won't allow the battery to charge. Basically the laptop would need to be taken apart and the motherboard taken out.

If you have soldering skills, all that needs to be done is to put new solder on the solder points that hold the dc jack in place.

If after you do this the battery still wont charge then you know for sure the connector is bad and then the connector would need to be replaced.

Dell Studio XPS Laptop Won't Boot


if the charging light doesn't come on i think it would be your power jack in your computer loose. this is not a home fix if so it would need to be sent off to get done. i would definitely suggest doing this especially if it is the problem and because if its under warrenty still they will fix it.

Wont charge


The most common cause of this is the input jack being broken off of the mother board. There is a fair amount of stress on the jack which is surface mounted onto the motherboard. It is common for the connection to break off. This can be fixed easily by anyone that works on surface mounted equipment. Please note that the laptop will need to be dis-assembled to gain access to the area that needs repair. This is a fairly involved process and should not be attempted by someone not familiar with laptops. Expect to pay around $100 for this repair. No parts should be required.

Power issues


Dell laptops use proprietary power supply adapters. Inside the adapter there is a communication device telling the laptop the power supply is a genuine dell product. Which in turn allows the battery to charge. Anyways it appears that your charger is having problems. You should probably try to locate one local (from friend or computer repair shop) to test. if you try a good one with no problems, then just get on Ebay and get you a genuine dell charger. they are about 40-60 dollars. Or try calling dell.

If trying a known good charger doesn't correct the issue, you could have broken solder pins on the power jack inside the laptop.

If this helps you solve you issue please rate my solution.

I would try cleaning the terminals on the battery and the computer with an old toothbrush and simple green or other multi-purpose cleaner, that doesn't leave residue.
