Question about Computers & Internet
My laptop is 17 months old and I cannot use it as I can't get it to charge, I think it could be the charing circuit as I thought I should I be able to use it if it is plugged in the mains without the battery fitted, do you know if this is correct?
The charger has been tested and it's not that, Samsung say it's either the battery or charging circuit, which isn't a surprising answer and not helpful.
Most laptops will work with or without the battery and with the power adapter connected.
If the power adapter is OK, just connect it to the laptop's power socket and wriggle this plug. Does the charging LED flash as you wriggle this plug? If so the power socket may have a dry solder joint or it may be faulty. Either way the laptop needs to be dismantled to solder or replace the power socket.
