Re: Dell D610 charging problem

Does it run without the battery installed? Also, will it run only off the battery? Isolate those two conditions, then we'll be able to narrow down the problem.
Good luck

Will keeping the ac plug connected kill my battery on Dell latitude d610?

I will suggest you to use laptop after it is full charge by removing the charger . when ever you feel battery is down then you can plug in the charger and keep using it, and when ever you see battery is full then remove the charger.
I'll not suggest you keep plugged in the charger when you are done, this way it can effect your Battery. and yes your battery can die with in a year if you are not follwing the correct way to use it.

My dell latitude d610 ac power is work is properly but battrey is not charging plz tell me soulition.

If the D610 works when attached to the AC Power Cord, it is likely that your battery is not capable of taking a charge and needs to be replaced. I have 2 D610 Dell Latitudes and they are very good laptops.
Please vote if my information is helpful or not. Recommend me. Thanks UAW 974

Hi! My Dell D610 doesn't charge the battery. When I plug the charger without a batt, the system powers on but the batt doesn't get charged when attached. Help me solve this problem pls.

1. Install and update the system BIOS:
Note: Make sure that both the ac adapter and the battery are attached to the notebook. Follow on-screen instructions on how to flash the BIOS.

2. If Dell QuickSet is installed, press <Fn><F3> to display the QuickSet Battery Meter. The Battery Meter displays status, battery health, charge level, and charge completion time for the battery in your computer. If battery health says that the battery is degraded and needs replacement, then you may need to replace your battery.

Why wont my dell D610 charge i have changed the battery and charger


If you are still encountering the problem charging your laptop's battery, it is possible that the port where you connect the adapter or the port for the battery is damaged. It will still receive power but it won't charge.

Best solution is to replace the motherboard. Just make sure you would get the exact same devices on a replacement board.

Hope this helps! :D

Dell Inspiron 6400 wont recognize new battery

Well often batteries from 3rd party manufacturer do not work in some laptops, see even the batteries have a "Chip" in them identifying them. Also sometimes these batteries are just no-good. or arrive flat, too flat to be charged up via the supplied charger. Anyway hopefully none of that applies and this will work. Now Turn PC OFF, put battery in unit. Now plug in wall unit, then plug into the PC, now leave the PC totally alone for at least 3 hours. Now the unit should work. Now how we tell where the problem lies is like this, Turn OFF, take out battery, now plug in the wall adapter, now the PC should work Fine like this. Now remove wall adapter, and insert the battery, the unit should go on this.. ONLY of course if charged. Now if when plugged in there are problems, it is more than likely, that indeed the battery is faulty, in some way.
These links below detail what steps to take to remedy any situation. The 2nd link is great.

This is possibly an internal power Supply fault. take the battery out, plug in the adapter, IF the unit works now, you have A: A battery problem, or B: a charging circuit problem. If the unit still fails to work, the power supply in the PC has faulted. You need to get a "Quote: for a repair.

My Dell latitude d610 charging circuit not working on board

What needs to be done is the jack that your adaptor plugs into has solder points underneath it. All the solder points need to be resoldered to make sure that there are no cracks in the solder that are preventing the jack from charging your battery.

After this is done if the laptop still isn't charging then if you know for sure your using the correct ac adaptor with your laptop then at that point the moterboard would have to be replaced.

Battery stopped working


Test your charger, the battery light blinking and the computer not starting up indicates not enough power to start up or not pluged into ac power, check the power adapter or charger. I suspect the battery is fine.

Dell D610 Batteries don't charge when AC adater is plugged

this is usually a sign of a common problem with these laptops. Usually the power works but it will not power the batteries to charge them. If the power adapter is fine- you have a bad motherboard.
