Laptop lost battery back-up suddenly.

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Thanks for posting in Fixya

1st of all did you try on the other laptop with the same model and make? if yes then did you check in windows if the battery of that laptop is showing it is charging?

Try to remove the main battery keep pressing the power button for 15 - 20 secs. then release it. now connect the charger directly to the laptop and try to turn on.

If you want to install the battery back do not insert when the laptop is running. Turn it off and then install the battery back and load windows later check if the OS shows that battery is getting charged

Remove the battery and check the voltage on the battery, if low try to JUMP charge, if not replace. Also check the charging voltage with the adaptor connected to the latptop. If there is no voltage then the charger must be checked.
However if the battery and adapter seems good then the mother board is a suspect and it is ideal to get the help of Tosibha service for estimation.

How long have you bought your laptop? If it's still under warranty (specially the battery), bring it back to where you purchase it and tell them the detail. You have problems with your battery that's why you cannot fully charge it and it easily drain. The problem with 3 to 4 times pressing the power button is that when you put your power chord, it will take a moment for the battery to charge an enough power to start your laptop, but I believe nothing is wrong with the switch. It's basically a battery matter. Word of advise, if you have the chance to replace your battery, do not overcharge and do not keep the power chord attached to your laptop most of the time. Allow your battery to reach the lowest level once in a while. This will help you maintain a healthy battery.

Hi my Samsung R530 will not turn on. I have the charger in and the battery is charged to 40% and the orange light is on to say that it is charging. I press the on button and nothing is happening, please...

Hi danielgardha,

I see that you are experiencing issues with your Laptop, you mentioned that the battery has %40 charge and that the adapter is plugged in on the laptop to the wall but still you get an orange light, but when you press the power button nothing happens on the machine.

  • Remove the battery and the adapter from the Laptop then press and hold down the power button, this is to drain power from the motherboard.
  • Once the power has been drained from the Laptop, connect the adapter back again but leave the battery out of the machine, then turn the system ON using the Adapter only.
  • If the Laptop turns ON using the adapter only then it is possible something is wrong with either the Battery or the motherboard of the Laptop.
  • Turn the Laptop OFF again then put the battery back in, then power the system again check if it will turn on with the battery and adapter in the Laptop.
  • If the Laptop does not turn ON when the battery is plugged in then you will need to have the system checked for a motherboard issue.
I hope that this will help.
