You can easily test this by removing the battery from the laptop, plugging it to the wall & see if it will work on or not. If it works, then the problem lies within the battery. If it did not work, the problem might be in the adapter or the laptop itself. Try using another adapter which is known to be working fine & see if the laptop will work. Beware that the adapter must be of the same type used by your laptop.
You can also try your adapter on another laptop of the same type to see if it will work.

Sony vaio not charging while charger plugged in


Seemingly your laptop dc jack is dead. How to confirm it? If you should wiggle your laptop charger on a position to let your laptop charge, it indicates your dc jack is loose. Either replace it or repair it. If your dc jack works well, please check your ac adapter. Maybe your charger is dead.

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.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

Problem description:The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause:1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.

2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.

3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.

4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

1525 dell battery not charging.


this could be one of 3 things.

Bad battery
Bad AC power adapter
Bad internal power jack (where the plug goes into the laptop)

The easiest thing to do is to try and use your laptop with the ac power adapter plugged in and no battery. This should work but if it doesnt then you know it probably is your ac power adapter. But if you feel like you have to wiggle and hold the cord in then it may be the jack on the inside. The only way I know how to fix that is to take it apart and resoder the joint holding that part together to make a stronger electrical connection.

As for the battery if you let it sit out for a day it will discharge any current it currently has inside of it and then you can try again to charge it. If that doesnt work and your cord and jack seem fine then you will need to look for a new battery to replace the one that died. This happens over a couple of years as the battery life shortens over the life of the laptop and more so if you use it heavily.

If your computer won't charge the battery, but the battery charges fine in another computer, and you are sure that the charger is good, then your problem is probably the DC power jack. If you wiggle the end of the power cord where it attaches to you laptop, and it starts charging properly, then the DC power jack is broken.

Won't accept AC


A couple things to check. In most cases the AC adapter itself fails and needs to be replaced.
  1. If there is another D series AC adapter available, try the system with it and see if the system works. If it does, replace the AC adapter.
  2. If no known good adapter is available, see if the AC adapter is putting out around 19 Volts DC at the connector that would normally plug into the system (Ground is outside of plug, + is the inside not the pin in the center) If you have no power detected, replace the adapter.
  3. If the LED on the AC adapter is not on when disconnected from the system but plugged into the wall, replace the adapter.
  4. If the LED goes out when plugged into the system or the DC jack on the system is loose, then you most likely need the jack replaced or the motherboard replaced both are about $100

Gateway laptop AC adapter not working


Fixable? Maybe
Sounds like a problem with the power jack on the Motherboard. If so, it is possible to remove the board and replace the jack but this requires soldering skills and is probably not something the average person would want to try.

You might try another adapter to be sure but if it is a motherboard problem the best solution is probably to junk it and buy a new laptop.

Acer 5100 laptop doesn't work on ac or charger battery


Motherboard is bad and will have to be replaced unless of course the AC Jack on the back of the laptop is loose. That would cause the ac adapter not to charge and then you would have to take the motherboard out and put solder on each leg on the bottom of the ac jack to make sure it stays in place then the ac adapter can charge the battery properly.

Even going thru the solder method the motherboard could still be bad and have nothing to do with the ac jack.
