My Gateway laptop, NE56R1u, shuts down automatically when unplugged even though fully charged?


Dear Leslie,

I had the very same problem with a HP Pavillion DV4 laptop and the problem was inside the battery - one of its cells became defective and the charge did not last more than a few seconds - it also showed a 100% charged icon but the battery was depleted in seconds.

Before buying a brand new battery you could check with a friend that has a similar laptop if he/she can lend you his/her battery for a few minutes and check whether the laptop keeps on or not with that other battery. In the case it remains on, it is the battery for sure, and you will need to buy a replacement one. Check the link below, for one option.

Hope you may find this information useful!

Best regards,

Miguel L. Martins

Gateway laptop shuts down instantly when unplugged but fully charged.


I have come across connection issues on the battery terminals. Make sure the brass contacts are not tarnished or bent. Have you tried another battery?

Can not run netbook off battery even though battery shows fully charged' When charger is removed netboook will not turn on


Make sure the battery is fully inserted and clicks in to the netbook body. Your battery may also be showing that it's charged but is actually dead. Try a new battery and see if it solves your problem.

Even though the battery is most likely fully charged, it will continue to show the battery symbol to show that it is charging/charged. Depending on the brand, there will be a different symbol between a charging battery and a charged battery.
As for your music, make sure you have the most current driver(s) installed on your computer.
Also try searching FixYa for similar problems.

My unit just shuts off and will not turn on again until I plug it in as if to recharge the battery. I checked the battery when I first turned it on and it said the battery was fully charged.


Hi there!

It probably does need a battery replacement.

Even though it may show fully charged, and even test as fully charged, it may no longer have the capacity to deliver it for any sustained period.

If you think of a comparison between a 12V car battery, and a 12V alarm battery. Both show full charge, and the same output voltage, the difference is the available plate area. This is reduced due to degredation, and will no longer provide the same output.

Hope this helps.

If you want to make the battery last longer, charge for the recommended time (as was the first charge), then run the battery right down before charging.

If this solves the issue, Please rate as Fixya! thanks.

Won't turn on.


Try starting it up without the battery. Batteries can pickup a dead short which will cause a laptop not to start even though they show a full charge.

Dew


Model: VL-Z800 Sharp ViewcamZ

I was in Shanghai in Dec 2008 over Christmas and I experienced the 'DEW' problem. The cassette tape door would not close either. I did not experience this before even after 2 years. I suppose the cold & the rain water causes the dew to accumulate in the CAM.

Solution.
I did the reset by taking out the small tiny battery situated just above the big battery. The small battery has a cover. Pull it up & Get the small battery out and the whole camera resets. Re-entering the date & time is the only inconvenience. After reseting, I could use it again, but not for long as the problem comes back. When I came back to Malaysia (Temp 32-34 degrees celsius), the DEW problem disappappers.

You could also try this method to get rid of the dew. Buy a small sack of rice. Yes rice, the uncooked ones. Cut open a small opening just big enough to put your CamCorder into the sack. If you do not want to get your CAM dirty, wrap the CAM with tissue paper. Close the opening with a musking tape and leave it a few days. The dew should disappear from the CAM. It works for mobile phones too when it is accidentally drop into water. Of cause you should not switch on the mobile when it is still wet. It will self distruct if you do. Try the rice solution for a week before you on your mobile.

Laptop shuts off when unplugged, battery is fully charged


Chosenone, Even though the battery meter shows it fully charged I doubt it?s correct. Over time rechargeable batteries loose their ability to store power. How long depends on the battery manufacturer and how well you treat it but you can consider yourself fortunate if your battery lasts three or four years. Beware of people who suggest you take apart your batter to bypass the safeties or replace old battery cells. Defective or improperly handled batteries can overheat and cause fires when you least expect them. Let us know if you have any more questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
