What does a orange power light mean

please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.

My laptop won't work on battery now!!

look at the bottom of the laptop where you install the battery, there's should be what looks like metal contacts where the battery connects to the actual computer. make sure that when you installed the battery you didn't accidentally bend 2 of them so they were touching eachother. you may have created a direct short which is what caused your heat and the smell. try to plug the battery back in and be careful that you don't bend the metal contacts.

Hi, i have asus eee pc net book, what was the issue is...... when ever i try to charge my netbook when netbook is truned on, the adopter light is blinking. when the netbook is truned off its chargeing...

When the adopter light is blinking. when the net-book is turned off means that is charging, but if the light remains for a lobg period of time there is something wrong with the battery or the charger.

Here is small tool Imtec Battery Mark designed to test the battery laptop life. You can run laptop battery test in two modes (fast and normal) and Imtec Battery Mark will provide full assessment of your Laptop battery at the end of test.

The dead battery charger means the charger can not work : can not charge the laptop battery or can not run the laptop. When our laptop battery can not charge, we must check the battery and charger state. Now let me list the steps of test our battery and charger below.

Make sure the powerbook g4 battery charger cable is plugged in and the output is to power.

Look closely at the battery. Is there corrosion or leakage? If so, replace the inspiron 6400 battery immediately.

Test the charger. For DC chargers, a voltmeter set at 25 VDC and touch the contacts with the probes. The meter should read about more than 1 V Evaluation of the shipper. If the reading is zero, change battery catheters.

Testing a AC charger through the establishment of a voltmeter to 25 VAC. Tap the contact probes. The transformer in the charger is bad if you get no reading.

Check contacts. These are strips of metal or points in the appliance and charging cradle. With the batetry charger unplugged, clean with a cotton swab. Use a fine emery board to remove visible corrosion.

Laptop battery not charging wanna know how to run without battery

The problem you described here shows that, the case is not likely to be a battery problem, but the laptop AC-Adapter (Charger) problem, because, the red light you are seeing shows that your battery has rundown, and even when you plug-in the adapter to AC, it still blinks red, showing that the AC-Power is not charging it. I would suggest that you get another Laptop AC-Adapter (The Charger), or try it with a friend's own first, then you'll see that the problem might not be with your battery but your AC-Adapter

Battery and or charger

Try removing the battery and see if the laptop works with the AC adaptor. If not either the AC adaptor is bad or the motherboard is defective.
If your battery LED flashes (yellow or Amber) or is solid Yellow or Amber color, this usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.
As for the error message “failed DST short test 1000-0146”, this is flagging an error on your hard disk drive. This could be caused by a bad hard drive or just needs to be reformatted.
