SOURCE: Receiving Charge will not turn on

Take out the battery and only have the ac adaptor hooked up to the laptop and then try to turn it on.

If that doesn't work, then the motherboard is faulty. Probably a short in the motherboard but the whole thing would need to be replaced.

Also make sure your using the correct adaptor as well.

SOURCE: Hp pavillion will not turn on, took battery out and put back in still not working. blue light around power cord on and blue lightening bolt flashes

Hi Iceprincess5

The three flashing lights indicate the battery is dead. Since it still wont power up with the cable plugged in I'd say the port has gone. Try wiggling the adapter about in the port to see if it begins to charge. If not then you would need to take it to a laptop repair centre to get a new dc port soldered on or buy a docking station.

SOURCE: How can I tell if

You can check the status of your battery by following the below:
To access Battery information: Select Start > Help and Support > Learning Center > Battery information.
OR
Select Start > Control Panel > Mobile PC > Windows Mobility Center. The time shown indicates the approximate running time remaining on the battery if the battery continues to provide power at the current level.

SOURCE: Hello! My HP nc6220 notebook will not turn on-if

Hello Francisco,
I also have the same problem, I was able to turn it on two days ago. But now, I can't. I have tried your suggestions, removed the battery, turn it on but it only show green light for few second and off it goes again. I am not sure the battery is flat since it is a new computer. Even when I use the cable, this time in fact the green led does not come on at all. Please help.

The second light from the left in the lower left hand corner of my Vostro 1510 is flashing. It looks like it might mean the battery is charging - ie it has a lightening -like symbol in the middle of the...


A flashing orange battery charging light is a failry universal symbol that means the battery is detected, but NOT charging. Usually, this means the battery has gone bad. In some cases, a slow orange flash means bad, a fast flash means very very low charge (or vice versa)

For your laptop in particular, go here for official illustrated documentation on the battery lights and meanings :

It appears lightening has damaged your router. Do you have a surge protected powerboard and do you plug all your computer equipment into this powerboard?
If you do not have a surge protection board, I suggest you install one to protect your equipment.

Is the lightening bolt supposed to flash orange? The battery will not keep a charge at all, so I have to keep it plugged in all the time. Does the orange flash mean I may be in danger of losing files, etc....


The orange flashing lightening bolt is confirmation the battery does not charge. It is not an indicator of any other hardware failure.

You can remove the battery if you find the flash annoying. The laptop will be lighter without the battery too!

No power only plug light and battery light is on


Hello,

The lights are indicators of which operation does your laptop operates.
1. Power indicator is lighten to green meaning you are in the mode of charging your power.and if the power indicator turns to orange meaning you are now using battery power or the charging is finished.
2. Reading indicator is blinking meaning your laptop is currently processing but if the Reading indicator is not blinking and made a static light then your system is in hang up or not reading the processes.
3. Wireless indicator is blinking or lighten then you are in the a wireless mode connection. Also the bluetooth and Infrared connectivity.
So please check which light indicator is lighten when you on your laptop.

Thanks

Battery light flashes 4times orange then 1green


We had the same problem. I figured out it was NOT the main battery, but the auxilary battery. The batter life WITH the auxiliary was 68% total, when I removed the 2nd battery the battery life shot back up to 98% AND the flashing orange / red lights were gone (both on the power source and off). I then replaced the auxiliary battery with a spar back up to make SURE that it was not a fluke and with the new backup battery firmly in place the lights still did not flash. Problem solved.

I have had three different laptops, last one an XPS from DELL which did the same thing. Replacing the battery solved all three laptops. How old is the battery you have in there now?

Flashing device status light


Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.
