Sorry to here about your problem with the orange flashing light.
1st. You really are not giving enough information to identify your problem.
2nd. If your battery is charging when unit is turned off and you can see a blue charging light on the front left panel, that's good but should only charge for 1 or 1 1/2 hrs. max.
3rd. If your charger is getting to hot to hold while attempting to charge the battery, you may have a bad battery.
4th. If the orange light disappears after removing the battery and replacing it with a known good battery, its the battery.
This unit is an HP and HP has a recall on many battey's. ( I have worked on al least 25 HP Laptops and in two years have not found a battery to return under recall ) Thanks, HP !!!

All and All, it sounds like the battery is NFG.
Drop me a email or reply here as to what you have found.

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 :

My Sony Vaio battery light remains orange


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all.
OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon


If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

Green and yellow lights flashes where the charging icon apears


There are a few LED lights on all laptops if that's what you mean, each usually have a symbol to indicate their meaning, the meanings can vary according to colour as well. For example mine has a picture of satellite dish (wi fi) which flashes orange as it communicates with my wireless router, there's a battery which is green when plugged in and orange when using battery. I have a bluetooth icon as well. There should also be one for the computer being on.

You can't as far as I know do much about them. Aside from sticking bluetac over them :-)

Flashing battery icon


The machine is telling you the battery is not charging or is otherwise no good.

The battery for this unit is subject to a recall, if it has part #OU091 or W1435. This recall started in October 08. Go to:

http://www.dellbatteryprogram.com/

for more info.

Alternatively, bring your power supply to a Radio Shack, and make sure it is putting out the requisite 19V DC power.

Red Flashing Icon


The icons from the left: 1. Power indocator 2. Hard Disk indicator --> it is a tube icon, not battery, but means hard drive. 3. Power Source indicator 4. Bluetooth indicator
The third from left means the power source indicator. Normally it is light green. If there is battery problem (can not charge or battery overload) it flashes amber/orange. If flashes red, it indicates that the battery power is low. You need to change the battery or connect the AC adapter.

Battery is shot, time for a replacement. Keep in mind that a Dell battery can aquire a dead short, this won't hurt the system, but it can keep the machine from starting up. If you find that your machine won't start up try pulling the battery.
