SOURCE: My Samsung laptop rv511 won't

Check in the back side you can see battery inside the laptop. Pull it then reconnect .if still same then make sure your battery is working fine. There should be issue with battery if battery is fine then you need to take it to nearest service center because there is problem inside the laptop like motherboard or circuit related issue. most of time laptop battery create this type of issue..So check the battery. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: my samsung RV511 laptop won't boot and the monitor keep on flashing on and off but the power indicator still ligths on

The monitor keeps flashing on and off? Or does your system keeps trying to reboot which causes the monitor to go on and off. Does the screen turn Blue before it goes off?

My samsung laptop charger gets hot and starts to melt when pluged in and powered up and does the same if i take the battery out please helptried a new battery and new charger could it be the jack on the...

I'm unclear however
Does the new charger get too hot? If so the problem is not the charger or the socket.
Does the laptop work with the new charger plugged in but no battery? If so the socket on the laptop is probably ok
Is the actual charger melting or is it just the plug that goes in the laptop that's getting hot, if it is the plug on both chargers then the socket will need repairing or resoldering, they are a weak point, the soldered pins go high resistance and can generate a lot of heat around the plug and socket. Its usually obvious if the socket is faulty because as you move the plug it makes contact intermittently.
DONT USE THE CHARGER THAT'S MELTING and if both are getting hot have the socket repaired.
If only the one charger getting hot the short is probably in the plug on that charger but read on
On a different note the genuine chargers should be over current protected and overheat protected, they should never melt.

Adapter from power cord gets power, but is not charging samsung rv511 laptop

Step 1:
b> If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge. You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly. When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop. It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling. If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power. This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury. A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible. Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open. The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors. Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery. Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it. See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed. If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced. If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number. Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay. If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems. Troubleshoot Mag Safe adaptors

The needle from my charger broke inside my laptop how do i get the needle out

You mean the charger pin stayed in the power jack? Power jack is very fragile, you'd better not force it out. Take it to a repair company, they will help.
