Question about Dell Latitude D505 Notebook

Dell latitude d505 will not power on

I plug it in, push the power button and nothing.. The battery light will light up and then dim about every 5 seconds.. Could this be due to a bad battery? I thought if it was plugged in to the wall the battery really didn't play a part to power the laptop.. Any suggestions or thoughts are greatly appreciated..

The dim on and off indicates
the ac power jack or adapter may be bad
its charging battery then not
take out the battery
check the pin in the laptop to see if it moves
or the end of the adapter could be bad
even if the green light is on
try not to wiggle to get to work, or you can break connection

Dell latitude D505 battery not charging


Take Dell latitude D505 battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works.
If it works, the battery may be the problem.
Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop.

Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity.
If that light isn't on, try a different outlet.
Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it.
If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing.
Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.

Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery.
Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection.
Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement.
hope this helps

My Dell D505 Latitude will not power up. The 3 green lights flash for less than a second and then it switches off. It was working fine until a few days ago. Any ideas of how to fix this as all my work is...


Sounds like ether a blown power supply. That happens when the laptop battery has alittle juice left.

Try to take out the battery from the bottom and plug the laptop in the wall. If the laptop powers up you battery needs to be replaced. If it doesn't power up, you need to replace the power supply.

Good Luck,

It doesn't do anything. get nothing when i press the start button either with ac adaptor or without battery appears to be fine.


Please elaborate on your issue: If your PC does not turn on or give any lights with or without AC adapter, most likely the internal power supply/connector has gone bad, and with it being a Latitude D505 it probably is out of warranty. Only on eBay might you find an old part or two to replace it.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I got a dell latitde d505 wont power on or anthing no blinking lights no noises. i plug it into the charger n the charger light goes off. can some1 please help me??


Sounds like you may have fried your dell latitude. I have seen many laptop's fry and it is nothing you did, but they just go sometimes.

Recomendaitons:
Take the battery out of the laptop.
Plug the charger in.
Hold the power button for a minimum 10 secs (which will reset the power options)
If there are still no lights than it is your cpu
If the computer turns on then you have a bad battery.

When batteries are bad or dead, the computer tries to run off of the battery befor the charger, it switches over to the charger after your OS has booted. In that case you can just order a new one no big deal, but if your cpu is fried then there is no hope for the laptop. :( I have lost four laptops because of this, so for your sake I hope its the battery or the GND Drain.

Also possible that the GND's drain on your board is too short and Gate 4 is driving low. To fix this you have to remove a SMT ceramic cap, which is located opposite side to the power connector, almost under it. I would guess at 1206 or slightly larger and there is an 0402 cap just next to its bottom pad at 90 degrees to it. A couple of Dell Latitude d505 have had this problem and can easily be fixed, but must be cautious and know what you are doing. I would advise seeing a professional.

Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

My Dell laptop d600 suddenly shut off and will not power back up....led light on adapter blinks when plugged in...I have tried re-inserting RAM modules but this or nothing else seems to work.. thank you...


Unplug your battery and then plug in AC adaptor and see if laptop powers on. I assume you power button doesnt turn on at all? If so, your motherboard seems to have a power issue. Unfortunately, you have to replace motherboard. If laptop. powers on withour battery then you then battery needs replacement.

My dell d505 latitude laptop has the dreaded


Sounds like your battery is dead. They go bad in laptops and need to be replaced in a couple years.

1) Unplug your battery and power laptop on with just AC adaptor. If laptop runs normal then you need to replace battery.

2) If it doesnt turn on at all then your motherboard may have a problem. The power supply is integrated on MB on most/all laptops.

2) if you need a motherboard replacement, try http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/DellPartsFamily.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs

I have a Dell laptop D505. The laptop powers up but the screen display is very dim. I can't see the image on the monitor. I've tried to manually increase the color/brightness button and nothing changes. ...


Sounds like your inverter or your backlight is failing. The inverter is an easy repair, the backlight can be replaced but it involves taking the LCD panel apart, The backlight comes installed on new screens. I can include a service manual below and possibly a generic guide to backlight replacement....

DELL Latitude D505


Have you tried the other fix? It often times works.
Remove the battery AND the power cord.
Hold the power button for 10 seconds.
Now plug in the power cord.

Magic should happen
