Yes the laptop should work without the power adapter aslong as the battery works and has power. depends on how old the laptop is the battery may work with the laptop for 30 minutes up to few hours depending on its age and how the computer is being used.

    Its a faulty laptop - hardware problem if your winbook J1 doesn't work with both the power adapter and battery plugged in.

    But what you need to do is first remove the power adapter from the laptop, then install the battery lock it in place, then plug in the ac adapter. that way it should work, if it doesn't you got a faulty laptop or your charger is ment for another device or is not working properly anymore.

Winbook. Why doesn't it turn on or charge?

It probably fails to turn on because the battery is drained. If it won't charge, first check the charger. Make sure it is working and putting out power. If it is working, then it could be the charging port in the Winbook, because it should power up with the charger plugged in regardless of the battery state.

No powe

Most of the time it is the battery, or the battery contacts. Make sure, when you place the battery on the charger, the charger acts like the manual says. If the charger does not starts with a slow blinking light, something is wrong. If it does not give any light, check the power (cord and outlet) on the end of the charge, the light should burn continues.
When you are not sure the battery is good, try mother battery.
It also can be the contacts are not free or oxidised. Check the contacts on the battery and in the camera, if they are clean and shiny. Just a spec of dust, or a very small pice of paper on one of the contacts cab spoil all the fun. You could clean the contacts with a dry cloth, or a cotton swab. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.
After you replaced the battery, try again. If nothing (not even a new battery) works, contact a Nikon certified service centre. Or visit the dealer.

Had trouble booting then just quit booting altogether...
For a quick fix that won't require soldering....
Replace the cmos battery2.gif. If it is more than 7 years old, it will most likely be weak or dead.
Remove the keyboard by sliding the KB toward you and lift the top up and slide out, Remove KB ribbon cable2.gif from connector by pulling on the plastic tab, remove the 4pin KB power connector. Then remove bottom screws and separate the case.
Locate the 3V battery, Pry the top tab of the 3v battery off the welded ends with a small needlenose, Pry the battery off the mini board, bend battery tabs so the new non-tabbed battery will be squeezing the new battery for contact, + is up!, add a piece of electrical tape to secure it from sliding. Replace bottom case and screws and then re-attach keyboard2.gif ribbon cable and 4 wire power connector. Re-boot and reset cmos ( CTRL-ALT-S ) on boot. Set your time. You must set the boot sequence to C:. It will then auto boot to C: WALLA! WIN98!
