Question about ASUS 1025C-BBK301 Eee PC Netbook Computer / 10-inch Display Screen / Intel Atom N2600 1.6 GHz Dual-core Processor / 1GB DDR3

Battery not charging, need to find extra voltage load?

Battery went dead, bought new one. WOuld not charge. Replaced adapter. Still nothing. Orange light blinks normal because battery at 8% and holding that charge through 4 charge cycles. HPCUID says battery wear at 3%, but gradually decreasing charge voltage. Need to figure out where voltage is getting pulled: looked at motherboard, no damage, did the ACPI compliant uninstall/install method, nothing changed, updated BIOS, chipset, and all possible drivers, nothing. It still says on battery meter that it is "Plugged in, charging 8%" and the only thing changed through 4 overnight charges is the charging voltage went from 8.9V now at 7.4. Charge current/W =0. Power settings set to minimal usage/power saving. Only solution I found is DC-DC converter but not sure how to go about replacing it without having to replace entire motherboard. Again, the only thing wrong with entire setup is that battery wont charge beyond 8% and it shows 46000 of 48000 charge capacity with 3%wear. Any suggestions are helpful.

    Good with schematics, just can't find them on this model- ASUS E ee PC 1025C-bbk301, motherboard #60-OA3FMB1000...I have 2 batteries, the OEM went dead which started all the troubleshooting, the new one is the current problem, but will be able to exchange it once they test it in store...I'm concerned that after all that the problem still persists. So is there a schematic for this particular motherboard so I can test the right circuits and/or repair if necessary?

    There is definitely a schematic or service guide for it, but they would normally be for a service techs eyes only, I have the details and will have a look for you as i do have access to all of Acer service guides (used to work for them) and let you know asap.

    Sorry, that should have said, they must be available on the net somewhere...

    You may be better off trying to find out who the board was made by as it will not be Asus, eg: all of Acer boards were manufactured by either Foxconn, Gigabyte or ECS and you can usually get a schematic from the real builders.

Hi gelly, unless the battery you have purchased just happens to be faulty (can you test with another) then i would suggest that the mainboard is faulty (charging circuit is not working as it should) and unless you are good with a diagram & soldering iron i would recommend taking to a good local tech. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: ASUS EEE PC 1008P the system

Maybe try cleaning the battery contacts on the netbook. If it happens with both batteries, then it may just be bad contact between the battery and the laptop. An emery board, or a small piece of fine sandpaper can be used to clean the contacts on the netbook. Clean both sides of the contacts - do it gently as you don't want to sand down the metal, you just want to clean off any oxidization or corrosion on the terminals. If this doesn't help, it may be a bad charging circuit on the board (new netbook). You could also try charging with a different a/c adapter and see if the problem persists.

Hope this helps!

You may have a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.

First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

First have the battery(s) tested. A number of car parts places will do it free. The test must be under load. Voltage may be fine in a discharged battery. In a 1985 Gold Wing the problem may be in the ignition switch. have the switch checked out.

08 650 executive, new battery but charging system doesn't charge

Your running off the battery until it dies. Check your chargng system. It should put out 13.0-14.5 volts. If not then the current will flow from what ever source has the most voltage. Thus, your dead battery. Try changing he voltage regulator and then check the stator next. Sometime stators can have burned section on them and reduce the voltage produced to the battery. Also check for really good connectin to the terminals. This can rob current and voltage by upt o 40%.

Battery Charge

The best way is to get a voltmeter and check the voltage of the battery with the truck running and not running. When the truck is running, the voltage across the battery terminals should be aboput 14.9 volts (showing the alternator is charging the battery). With the truck off, the battery voltage should be about 12 volts (showing that the battery is holding the charge). From there, you should be able to tell which is bad.
