Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook

1 Answer

Battery will not charge

I have had this problem 3 times be.fore the first 2 times I paid $250 each time to have the power plug resoldered to the motherboard and the last time I did it myself and it worked for about a year 11 months longer than when I paid someone repair companies to do it. My brother was using my laptop and it came loose again so I once again opened it up and reseolder it again, I then put everything back together and the battery still wont charge so I took it apart again to double check the solder and to make sure everything was to put back together correctly and as far as I could see it was.

    you would check the voltage on the motherboard to see if voltage is getting to it.
    radio shack you can buy one pretty cheap.

Hi my presario cq62 battery is not charging can u help me


There are 4 things this could be:
1.) There may be an issue with your outlet/power strip. Try plugging the power cable into a different outlet.
2.) The power cable's brick (that box-like component in the middle of the cable) may have gone bad. Some bricks will have a green LED on them to show when they are operating properly. If the LED is OFF, you need to replace the power cable. If it's ON, the cable is probably OK. If there is no LED, test with a multi-tester.
3.) Your battery may be bad and, therefore, cannot charge. The steps to test this are below (after #4).
4.) You're DC jack (the part inside of your laptop which the power cable plugs into) has broken solder joints due to too much tugging of the power cable over time. The steps to test this are below.
For issues 3 and 4, try the following: 1.) Remove the battery, 2.) Plug the power cable into the laptop, 3.) Try to turn ON your laptop.
If your laptop can power ON, then the power cable and DC jack are working fine and your battery needs replaced. If checking the brick's LED (Issue #2) has proven the power cable is fine, AND the laptop does not power ON, then you need the DC Jack resoldered (PC shop).
I hope this is helpful and best of luck!

No problem just bought a mpd-1760 from someone its brand new never even been used ,but no instructions/need to know how long to charge battery for first time or at all //charging time for battery to watch...


Hello,
To charge the battery back you want to
  1. Turn the power off the DVD player first as the battery pack will not charge with the power on.
  2. Attach the battery pack to the player.
  3. Connect the AC power adapter and the power cord to the player.
  4. Charging will now start and the Power/Charge indicator should now be orange.
  5. Do not unhook either cord until the Power/Charge turns off.
  6. Time of charging is approximately 4 1/2 hours.
  7. The battery pack will more than likely get warm while charging. This is normal. Keep it as much in the open as you can for the best ventilation possible.
  8. You will get a low power indicator on the screen when the battery has a low charge.

As for playback time you will get about 2 1/3 hours of actual playback and about 4 hours of standby with the DVD player actually on.
Regards, Tony

Problem description:The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause:1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.

2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.

3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.

4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

The power button doesnt seem to be working


It sounds like a short in the button itself. If you have a soldering gun, take it apart and resolder the connection. This is typical for Acer laptops.
It's either the button itself or the jack where the power supply plugs in. It's not real difficult.

My 2005 Crf 250 r will not start by kicking when cold if you roll it it will fire right up like it should runs great after you get it started the first time what are some simple things that i could try to...


Add water to the battery. Enough to cover the plates in each cell.
The battery may be on its' last legs. If you don't have a 1 or 2 amp charger, push start the bike and ride for a few hours. This should charge the battery < IF > it will still take a charge. If it won't take a charge and hold it then it's time for a new battery.

The reason you can push start the bike is that the flywheel is able to spin fast enough to generate enough current to provide spark. Kick starting won't do that. Just because a battery has SOME power does't mean it has ENOUGH power to do as needed.

Please rate this answer. Thanks hunterdan01!

"Plugged in, not charging", Toshiba Satellite A135 S4527, under Windows Vista Home Premium


It sounds like the power socket on the laptop is faulty and needs replacing or resoldering. To check this, power up the latop with the power adapter, wriggle the plug in the power socket and check if the battery charge indicator flicks on and off indicating charging and not charging. If it indicator flicks on and off then you have a faulty power socket.
This can be repaired but required the laptop to be completely dismantled to access the power connector.

Battery or charger ?


well...this one is interesting, for certain. You bought a display model, so the chances of it working off battery are mighty slim. Could be that the m/b was running off ac power all the time, and can NOT charge a battery. I'd take it back, and have them show you that it will run on battery, which is considered a fairly important issue with laptops, at least around these parts on Hawaii
