I found that a BatteriesPlus store can rebuild battery packs for almost any device. In most cases they are faster and cheaper than buying a new one. Their website: www.batteriesplus.com

My tablet wont charge unless turned on but battery is so low it wont turn on so cant charge it up.heeeeeelllllpppp


You Power Cord must be bad. If you cannot get on the laptop by using just the power cord, then the power cord is bad and needs to be replaced. Also it sounds like you've been operating off your battery since the power cord is bad, but now the battery is dead because the bad power cord was not charging it.

Get a new AC Adapter and Power Cord. Or it could be that the pin where you plug the power cord into the table is damaged or broken.

T will indicate charging but it won't charge actor


If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

My Sony laptop is not charging when it is pluged in on to the electric oulet


If the battery is not charging when the power cord is plugged in then the battery is completely dead and needs to be replaced.

Are you sure your power cord is good and that you are not operating on battery power?

Take the battery out and see if the laptop stays on. Or you can reboot with the battery out and the power cord in. If it fails that means the Power Cord is the issue and you were working off the battery.

If you leave the power cord off and insert the battery, then reboot. If it boots up and stays up that means the battery has some charge in it. If it does not boot up or boots and shuts down, the battery is drained and you will need another one if the power cord is good and it's not charging.

Why is my acer emachine charging blinks in red


That is a signal that your battery is almost dead or drained. If you have the power cord plugged in and the battery is not charging at all, that means the battery is dead and you need to purchase another one.

In windows xp you should be able to click Start/Control Panel/Power Options. When the power options window opens click the Power Meter tab. It will tell you if your battery is charging.

Now to isolate if it's really the battery that's dead or if it's the Power Cord that's bad. You might really be operating on battery power even though you have the power cord plugged in.
1) Turn the laptop off and remove the battery. Turn it back on with only the power cord plugged in. If it comes and and boots up ok, then your power cord is ok.
2) Turn the laptop off and this time put the battery in, but leave the power cord off. Now hit the power button and see if it boots up. If it does that means you might have a little power still left in the battery, but since it was not charging when the power cord was plugged in, the battery is bad because you verified in step one that the power cord is good.

It is problem with your laptop's SMPS ie. Switched Mode Power Supply.

Due to which your laptop can't get regulated power supply neither from Power Cord nor from Battery.

Yes, your LED will show charging but its useless because your laptop's Mother Board Chip is not getting power.

So please ask some hardware engineer to replace it.

Rate this solution if it was helpful to you.

With Regards,

Battery wont charge.


Unfortunately, Mintek seems to have gone out of business, so there is no way to purchase replacement parts without finding them online somewhere.

The problem could be caused by one of three things:
  1. The battery is dead and cannot be recharged
  2. One of the battery connections is broken in some way
  3. The cord is bad and will not provide power
If the battery is dead, you're stuck with keeping it plugged in or trying to find a battery online. If one of the battery connections is bad, the only way to test it is with a new battery and you're back to finding one online. If the cord is bad, it wouldn't provide power at all, so it sounds like both of your cords are fine.

The battery will not charge. The player was bought 10 mnths ago


Test the voltage at the end of the power supply cord. perhaps the cord is broken or the power supply is dead. The output voltage should be listed on the adapter or by the DC input jack on the unit.
