    definitely try another charger. maybe find a friend who has one compatible with your laptop,before going out & buying one.also try a different outlet.i see you bought a new battery,is it possible is not the right kind or not installed correctly? or it could even be defective. i bought one for my phone that wouldn't charge, but when i tried my friends with the same phone it worked.i would also see if your actual charger port is loose.

If you moved the computer & tapped it the wrong way,the battery might not be correctly sitting.
while you're checking that,take some q-tips soaked in alcohol & clean the battery terminals & the computer contacts. this way if its clean & inserted correctly,you know it's not either of those issues.
can your charger be old or damaged?
also try another electrical outlet.
if none of these work,you may have to purchase another battery.
if that's not it,i would find a local computer repair guy.ask him what's wrong & how much to fix. at least you'll know what's wrong & can decide what to do from there.

Has this been an ongoing issue? Is your laptop old?

I had exactly the same issue with my daughter's netbook. It just wouldn't hold a charge, not matter how long it was plugged in. It would work if it was plugged in, but die as soon as it was unplugged.

If it is worth keeping the laptop, consider buying a new battery.
Good luck,

Paul

    Hopefully you didn't through out the old battery. It may be the charger. Make sure the battery is installed until it clicks. Maybe you could find a charger on eBay, Craigslist, or Kijiji.

  • paulgbrandon Apr 05, 2015

    You could try with the computer unplugged. Try booting it with just the battery. Normally, they come charged;)

What does a orange power light mean


please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.

My laptop pavilion dv7 window 7 core i5 stops starting on fir any reason and when I plug it on ac there is a blue which appears and if I press the power button this light becomes orange and the laptop does...


I take it is the HP Pavilion
try to charge the laptop for a couple of hours without switching it on, it might be the battery is completely drained.
the light will change to orange to let you know it is charging, when fully charged it should change to blue and stay blue until you remove charger. you should try to use the your laptop with the charger adapter connected at all times when it easy to do so. I do hope this helps.

This sound as though the power supply adapter needs replacement.
If you can find a compatible power supply adapter perhaps you can charge you laptop.
A company call Batteries Plus may be able to help or Ebay may have you adapter power supply if you do a search.
You may also contact Dell for support on this issue.
Some Dell power supply fail due to overheating.
you may also want to check the power supply connector.

I just replaced my laptop battery - BATBL50L6. My charge light flashes orange. Win7 says plugged in, not charging. shows 0%. I tried reinstalling the ACPI battery monitor in DM.


try putting the old battery back in and see if you get the same problem. Also check where the chargers plug goes into the laptop. If it fits loosely your charger port needs replacing.

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.

Battery light flashing orange


That means that the battery is faulty. It starts reaching certain level and then it starts blinking. You laptop is ok, it's just the cells inside the battery are going bad. So just replace it. Try to find an original battery because those replacements are not that good and it is not going to last very long. Dont forget to rate if my answer helped you. Thank you :D
