Dell's are the worst. First is the wire broken out sidde the box? Most I have repaired have broken at the plug real close to the end that plugs into the computer. Looks fine but the wire breaks inside the insulation. I slice the insulation back looking for the brake, cut each wire at different locations, so you do not get a large patch in the same place. Solder the wires back and tape them up = match color for color.

Battery won?t charge and AC adaptor not recognized


I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 that just turned two years old.

After one year, my dell 6-cell battery started to falter, so Ipurchased a new 9-cell battery. This worked fine until a couple ofmonths ago when I noticed that my 65W adaptor was frayed. I bought anew 65W Dell Inspiron 6000 ac adapter andit worked well for about a week until I noticed that my battery wasn’tcharging at times. If I was patient, or unplugged the adapter andplugged it back in, the battery began charging and all was saved.

This lasted only a short time until my Dell Inspiron 6000 batterywouldn’t charge at all for long periods of time, and sometimes thecomputer wouldn’t turn on, even if plugged into the wall. I thought itmight still be the adaptor, so I borrowed a fully functioning 90W Delladapter from a family member to test the system. This worked better,but still not great.

When I removed the battery and started only fromAC power, the functionality was also intermittent. Usually, if thecomputer actually started, I received the start-up error “The Inspiron 6000 AC AdapterType could not be determined, etc. etc. etc.” After pressing F1, thecomputer booted, but if the battery wasn’t in, the computer didn’tusually last long before shutting off. Unsure if maybe the battery wasthe problem, I put the 6-cell Inspiron 6000 batteryback in, and it too wouldn’t charge, although (together with the 90Wadapter) my computer would at least start more consistently if pluggedin. The error remained however, and sometimes the system stopsrecognizing power and switches to my ever dwindling battery power untilthe adapter is recognized again.

The problem is with the jack on the motherboard inside our Inspiron 6000’s. This is the jack you plug your power plug into on the back of the laptop.

Somehow the jack gets worn and does not make correct contact withthe laptop so the Laptop does not see the power supply as a legit Dellbrand. So the powersupply will not charge the laptop battery and run the laptop at the same time.

Modern laptops are all sold with built-in wireless laptop ac adapter.Some power notebooks used by corporate road warriors will have powerfulcellular adapters that connect the laptop to the Internet via the cellphone infrastructure

A bad connection between DC-IN power jack on the system board and the system board is a very common problem with dell pa 12,dell e1505 and Dell Inspiron 6000notebooks. If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix theproblem by resoldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it’s stillunder warranty, it would be fixed at no charge to you. Problem symptoms:

  • Laptop randomly shuts down without any warning.
  • Power LED and battery charge LED start flickering when you wigglethe power cord or the AC adapter tip on the back or your laptop.
  • The battery will not get charged.
  • When you plug ac adapter for laptop, the laptop appears to be dead and there is no LED * activity at all (DC-IN jack on the system board is broken).
To fix the problem, you have to take your laptop apart, remove the system board to resoleder or replace the DC-IN jack. dell pa 12 and Dell Inspiron 6000 disassembly guides will help you to remove the system board. Take a closer look at the power jack on the system laptop board witha magnifying glass. In most cases you get the power problem because ofa bad connection between the DC jack and the system board, you’ll see acrack between the DC jack connector and the system board.

Hi, I have a inspiron 6000. 6 years old but works like a charm. Only problem now is the adapter won't charge [not an adapter issue as it works on other dell laptops]. And after the battery has...


Remove the battery and replace it, test. If this does not work, attempt to power on with the AC adapter plugged in and no battery in the system. If this works, you have a bad battery. If this does not work, watch the light on the ac adapter. If the green light goes out when you press the power button, something more is wrong with the system. Further information is desired. When you press the power button, do any lights on the system light up? Do the fans in the computer turn on? Does it make ANY noise? Finally, if available, it is desirable to try a different and known functional AC adapter.

Dell Inspiron 6000 (approx 4 years old) has an issue with the power cord internal connection? Battery and Power cord/adapter are fine. Computer constantly switches from battery to AC when powered on. ...


The input jack that is soldered to the motherboard (where the AC jack plugs in) probably has a cold solder joint. Thus the laptop switches from battery to AC power. You can try to have the solder joints
re-soldered.

Will not start


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Dell inspiron 6000 power adapter problem


If the DC socket at the back of the laptop is moving, that means that one or more soldering joints on the motherboards are broken. The way to fix the problem is by disassembling the laptop completely, the laptop, taking motherboard out, and replacing the socket.
This requires full disassembling and a precision de-soldering and soldering job on the motherboard.
Using the computer in this conditions can cause further damage.

Dell inspiron 6000 power supply shot...


There are no internal power supplies in laptops. What has most likely happened is as your laptop fell it either landed on the part of the power cord that was sticking out the back/side of the computer or the tension was so great on the plug from it falling that the power supply connector on the motherboard has broken loose from the motherboard. I have seen this happen a lot. This is not a job for an amatuer. It takes someone with knowledge of laptop repair and motherboard repair. In your best case scenarios either the little strip that contains the power button has popped loose and is not making contact (seen this happen in one case) or the power supply adapter (not part of the laptop) has been damaged and torn some wires. In the first case just try to push that power button strip down on the laptop first to see if it will snap back in place. If you can find someone else that has the same adapter you can ask to borrow theirs for a few minutes. Medium case scenario is that it has broken the solder loose and just needs to be resoldered or a new power plug soldered in. Worst case scenario is that it has cracked the motherboard, which will be expensive to fix (it would have to be replaced). Continuing to try and use it in this state (unless it is the best case scenario) will further damage the motherboard as the electricity will start jumping to places it should not go and eventually destroy the motherboard.

Labtop not charging


Try removing the battery and see if the laptop powers on. If it still doesn’t power on then either the motherboard is defective or the AC adaptor may have a broken wire in the cable.

Dell Inspiron 6000, charging AC problems


This sounds as if the jack in the machine is loose or broken. Take a small screwdriver, place it in the jack, and see if there is any play in the jack. If there is play then you know the jack is loose/broken. I would suggest checking it or having someone check it. A loose or broken jack can create an electrical arch that can do severe damage to the machine, so if it is the jack, you will want to get it fixed ASAP. I also suggest not using the machine, if possible, until the jack is checked out. If it turns out not to be the jack, then it's going to be a problem with the power management system, and this is a major fix. From what you've posted, I'm going to say that it's the jack, and repairing the jack will fix your problem. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.
