You might try cleaning the battery compartment. Makeing sure there are no damaged pins. Often times even a single messed up pin will cause this. Also this is a very good indication of adaptor failure. If you haven't allready I suggest getting another ac adapter specific to you machine. Even a substitute will casue the same issue you are now experianceing.

SOURCE: sony viao wont boot, battery light flashes amber

Move the power jack around while plugged in, does the blinking on the battery stop when you hold it in certain positions? If so, your dc-jack needs to be soldered, but i probably was loose already before you started using it. It could be a broken motherboard issue as well. You can try to open the laptop and check the dc connection. There is a Laptop Repair Guide that shows you how to take apart a laptop, the sony may be made in a similar way. Sony Repair NYC

My laptop is not powering on help


1.Connect the Ac adapter to a known good power outlet. Check the Power LED indicator on AC adapter (without plugging into the Notebook). We are only checking the power AC adapter to see if that is working.
2.If LED on the AC adapter is not lit (when unplugged from notebook), reseat the AC adapter brick and cable. If still there is no light on AC Adapter replace AC adapter and Power cord.
3.If LED on the AC Adapter goes off only after connecting to Notebook, the issue is with the motherboard. Replace Motherboard, DC-In port (AC adapter connector).
4.If the AC Adapter LED is always ON, take a technician's help and reseat the Power Button Board. You can refer to the Service Manual for details on how to reseat the Power Button Board. (NOTE: Before the notebook chassis is opened ensure all the power connections including battery and external devices are disconnected)

Power problems


Unplug the AC adapter (Charger) from power. Unplug the AC adapter from the laptop.
Remove the Battery.

Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds.
(And I mean 10. Count, 1001,..1002,..1003,..etc)

Reinstall the Battery. Plug the AC adapter back in. Plug the AC adapter into power.

(ALWAYS plug the AC adapter into the laptop FIRST, then plug the AC adapter into power.
Why?
To avoid a voltage spike at the laptop)

WAIT 1 minute, turn the laptop on.

Still no?

Then the AC adapter needs to be checked, to see if it is putting out the correct voltage.

Don't know, Model Number wasn't stated.

AC adapter checks out, then it is on to the DC Power Jack.
The jack on the laptop (DC_IN) that the AC adapter plugs into.
What style?

Don't know the Model Number wasn't stated.

DC Power Jack checks out, then I suggest you have a problem with a Power MOSFET,

(Model Number is on the Bottom of the laptop. Plus, this IS a Dell, right?)

Hello, when am using the Ac power adapter with my Toshiba satellite it hangs but when am running on batter it works perfectly. what can i do


I suggest you try another adapter which is known to be working without problems. If the problem disappears, then your AC adapter is defective & needs to be replaced.

Plugged it in and there is power going to the computer (orange batter light is flashing) but the green power button is not lit and the computer is not booting up. I should not need the battery if plugged...


You're correct. The laptop should power up when connected with AC adapter with or without the battery being installed. If you still have no power, the power supply on the laptop may be bad.

When I press the power button on my studio 1555 nothing happens. I have tried with and without the battery plugged in. I am so confused as to why it isn't turning on. over the past week it has been a bit...


It could be a mechanical failure of the button in the hinge assembly.
It could also be that the AC adapter wasn't working and the system was powering off battery till batter died.
Are there any power indications on the system? (Battery LED with AC Adapter connected?) If there are power indications then the power button seems to be the possible fault.
If no power indications, try a different AC adapter

Compaq N610c does not power on on AC adapter or on Battery :(


Hello,

it might be that the AC adapter is no more working. To confim this, remove the laptop battery and test the AC adapter with the laptop.

You can also borrow a friend's AC adapter and test it with your laptop.

I wish you good luck.

Hi forum, I have been using Compaq N610c notebook and was working fine but was not power ON . on AC adapter but it was working on Battery. From last day, the battery become zero showing battery indicator...


It's possible that the AC adapter "died", and then your computer ran on battery-power until the battery went to 0%.

Or, the socket on the laptop where the AC adapter connects could have broken, or become disconnected from the motherboard, such that the power from the AC adapter was not being accepted, meaning that your computer was running on battery-power.

Take the AC adapter and the computer to a qualified technician, who can test that the AC adapter is working fine, and can disassemble the laptop, to inspect that socket where it connects.

Sony Vaio PCG 7v2l won't turn on


this may or may not be the solution but its some sort of indication of what is going on. Ok when you plug the ac adapter do u get a flashing light to indicate your batter is being charged? If you do then there is power going through the laptop to the battery, which is great. Now if you don't have the indicator flashing then it could be that the where the AC adapter plugs to the laptop could be now faulty. The other one could be that the AC adapter plug i.e. head that goes into the laptop some how internally has a severed connection.

comment on what you find and ill see what else i can advice :)

Hp notebook zd8000 wont power on


In this case i suggest you to remove the battery from the notebook and try to power on the notebook with the help of AC adapter so that you come to know whether the issue is with the Battery or AC adapter. If still the notebook is not getting power with AC adapter you need to take for service retailer store and fix the issue.
