Try pulling out the battery. Then plug in the power supply and see if you can get it to power on. If so wiggle the plug and see if it shuts off. If either if those are true, en you most likely need your DC Jack replaced. You would want to take it to a laptop repair shop. It is usually $20 for the part and around 1.5 - 2 hours labor for the repair. Requires pulling out the motherboard and desoldering the old jack. And soldering in a new one. No fun

Gateway nv52 won't charge


It sounds like you either have a dead mother board or a bad power inlet. Did the machine work with the new battery while it was charged? If so, then the battery connector was good and the inlet was bad. If not, your motherboard could be dead. I've also seen where a bad battery connector would syphon off enough power to not power on the machine or charge the battery.

Hi I have a Gateway MT6840 laptop. The problem I'm having is it won't run or charge a good battery. I have borrowed a friends Gateway MT6840 laptop to test it and my battery charges and works great in his...


Are you sure that the charger is working?
If not it could be the battery slot. There is nothing you can do on your own except swap batteries ant try.

My gateway mt6840 does not read my new battery


Have you tested your power supply to confirm it's sending out the right amount of current.A simple ac tester is all you need.On the back of your power brick it will tell you your in-put and out-put voltage requirements.If your ac adapter tests good your new battery is probally the problem.

My sanyo pm 8200 wont hold charge!


Hello,

Since the battery and charger are new and yet it does not still hold charge.

Have put the battery in another similar phone and try to charge with your charger to see if it will hold charge? if you have.

It means the charging port of your phone is bad and you will need to replace it.

The charger is not charging the battery in anyway because the charging port is bad, so just change your charging port, your phone will now hold charge.

Take care.

I have a gateway MT6840. I am having charging problems.


This problem requires the dismantelling of the system and the socket either being resoldered to the motherboard or replaced if it is damaged. if you cannot or are not comfortable with doing this yourself, you will need to get a tech shop to do this for you.

Gateway mt6841 won't turn on or won't take a charge, no lights when ac adapter is plugged in


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the charger unit is acturally giving out the power, then it maybe the DC Jack in the laptop (where it plugs in) Is this loose


It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Power port for gateway MT6840


First easy check is to stick a toothpick into the jack to see if the middle pin is loose. If it's not loose, try another power adapter to check just incase. If you dont have one ask around to borrow a universal one. Dont jiggle and wiggle the plug with the power plugged in if it is loose because i've seen shorts happen.

usually plugs are mounted onto the mainboard. To get to the main board, you'd have to take apart everything because everything attatches to the main board. The case, keyboard, heatsinks, speakers, and so on must come off before you'll be able to see the power jack. With parts and labor, it comes close to a new laptop.

if its not the power port then it could be a bad switch...or main board

what happens when you press the power button?

can you hear your cd drive fan or anything start up?
