Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron 1505. It works when connected to A/C power outlet, but has a loose connection in DC jack. The adaptor needs to be pressed upward. But it does not charge when connected. I bought a new battery pack in Feb 2008 from Dell. So I cant believe that the battery is bad. How do I know what to replace? DC Jack or battery? Is there a problem with charging function? Any help is appreciated. I have the exact same problem. The computer does not register that it is plugged in, when it is. Either way can you suggest a company that would be able to fix it in Albuquerque NM?
You have either a faulty connector plug on the power adapter which connects into the laptop or the loose power input socket on the laptop is faulty. This is because you need to press the connector upwards to make electrical contact.
Test the connectot plug on the power adapter with a multi-meter, wriggle the connector to see if your get the voltage to fluctuate, if it does not then the connector is OK anf the fault is in the laptop power input socket.
If the fault is in the power adapter plug or the laptop's power input socket, this can be repaired, a techo would have no trouble in repairing these faults.
