    Please disconnect the battery and test alone with power adapter, does the DC in led turn on? then connect the battery, does the battery led turn to charging ?

    Do the power leds blink when you attempt to turn it on? does there appear to be a sequence that they blink in?

3000 c200 is dead and wont start up even though there is power to ac adaptor (warm)


Remove the battery and try to start the laptop. If the battery is totally down it may cause an issue even though it isn't supposed to. Also, check the voltage at the plug that connects to the laptop. A short at the plug will give you a warm power adapter but no power to the laptop.

Powering off


Actually, if it is beeping as though the battery is low even while it is plugged in, it is because the battery is no longer any good and is sucking all the power from the wall. You need to purchase a new battery. Until you get a new battery, you can simply remove the battery and use the laptop plugged in. That will stop it from turning off. Been there - done that. Hope that helps! ; )

Samsung YP-Z5F MP3 player malfunction


I have that kind of Mp3 Player too... that happened to me, but the PC was able to read mine. However, the reason why the message: "Low Battery USB Disabled" appears, is that you still have remaining battery life, but will only last for less than an hour (indicated by low light and red empty battery sign) you have to make sure the Mp3 is completely discharged. (you'll be notified when you turn on the device while it says: "Low Battery") once that it is completely discharged, you can now plug in the USB cable with the device to the PC... if problem persists, check your PC.. can it read the device? Check if a notification balloon appears at the bottom right corner of the monitor screen. It should say, "Found New Hardware... Samsung YP-Z5F..." if it did not appear, try to INSTALL using the Installation CD given when you bought the product. Just insert the disk into the PC and continue on, then when it is already installed and ready for use, plug in the device! This may be a little hard, but this is the only way I know. Feel free to ask me! I am no technician but I know a lot on devices and fine mechanics. Good luck!

No juice


Sounds like a battery issue. Try powering up without the battery, just AC. If it powers properly, then the battery needs replaced. If it doesn't then it may be the power supply malfunctioning, or the motherboard.

Ethernet card problem


I have a Dell Inspiron and when it operates on batteries it automatically (by default) shuts down the wired network adapter when not in use. The solution may be to insure the network cable is plugged in before starting the laptop or to learn where in the power management utilities to turn on the wired network adapter -- I believe it can be done permanently at the cost of reducing battery operating time overall. It can probably also be done on a when needed basis. My Dell currently does not have windows on it and the operation on my machine may not be the same as on a Latitude. When this happened I used to get little balloon notices from a systool bar icon, however I also modified the default configuration to show my network devices in the systool bar when connected as well as when disconnected.
