My new dell battery wont charge

My old battery just ran out of juice. I bought a new battery that was shipped to me, put it in, but its only charged up a tiny amount and doesnt seem to charge up any more no matter what i do. Im not sure if its a faulty battery or an issue with the laptop. My AC pack is fine.

I bought a new battery for laptop and it still wont charge


Dell uses proprietary equipment. IF the laptop wont work when plugged in and it is the original Dell charger, you need to check the charger, if the charger wont work then the battery wont charge. Note that it might be the connection on the board inside the laptop especially if the cord got pulled on while plugged into the laptop.

Lithium batteries mustn't be fully discharged or it can loss the possibility to recharge it: only every 2-3 months you have to dischage it until the pc shuts down and then recharge to preserve its capacity. Is normal that in the battery remain some volts but ther's no sufficent ampere to make works the pc, listen if someone has different ideas but I think you've to buy another one.

We have a Dell latitude d600 and the old battery had gone bad some time ago, would charge, but lasted maybe 10 minutes. We bought a new OEM Dell battery for it, and put it on charge all night. The charge...


Sounds like you should try a regular Dell factory refurbished battery. Or if not that, try a battery that you knows works for sure. Then try charging it up, if it doesn't charge up then you know its a situation with the motherboard.

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon


If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

Dell Inspiron E1505 won't recognize new battery


It won't charge or work correctly if it's not the correct one and of the right voltage etc.I don't know how the battery even went in if it's not the Dell specified battery.If it went in and looked to fit maybe the battery itself is bad but its hard to say.

New battery wont charge back up


there is a problem with your charger. dell chargers have a habit of blowing. there is a small chip in them that tells the computer that it is ok to charge the batery, that little "safety feature" blows out and will no longer charge your battery. you will have to buy a new charger, either at a store like best buy (make sure it specificly says it is compatible with dell) or go to the dell website to order an "official" one. both options are unfortunately a little expensive, but your only option. i had the same problem with my xps1330.

Compaq nx500 battery wont charge


I could be that your battery ran out of juice. 6 cell batts can only charge upto 1000 charges then they die. Or it could be your internal laptop power supply.

good luck

Dell d610 latitude wont charge new battery


Hey,
First off, do you have a way to check the output of the ac adapter to ensure it's putting out the correct current?
If you've done that and have a multimeter handy, you can remove the battery, system off, and check the charge pins for current/voltage. I believe one of the end pins is neg (ground) and at least one of the other pins should show 2.6-3.6V, as well as other various voltages. If you fail to get any response at the charger pins, we'll need to look at the board circuitry, assuming again that the ac adapter is operating properly.
Good luck
