Question about GE AV23636/AV93636 Universal AC Adapters (500 mA)

2 Answers

I just got a new AC adapter for my laptop, and it was working fine when I started using it, but the brick is small, and though I have the battery taken out, it keeps switching between the AC mode and Battery mode, or it will have "AC Mode" *pause* "AC Mode" *pause* and so on until it just shuts down.

Nope, I never figured it out. I think it just might be that the brick overheats, and I need to get a larger one.

Though I love how your thing works.

Inspiron 1545-my AC adapter doesn't seem to charge my battery


Check the LED Your Dell Inspiron 1525 offers five small blue LED lights on the front left corner of the laptop that display the status of various areas of your machine. The middle light shows the charge status of the battery, with a solid light indicating charging. The light changes to a blinking sequence as it nears full charge and turns off when full. Without the adapter cord plugged in, the battery LED turns orange as the charge runs down. Check the color of the light to verify charging status.
Verify Connections and Power
Start with the simplest cause and work backwards to the laptop. Use a different electric device to check for electricity from the wall outlet. Verify that the connections of adapter cord are tight and secure at the wall outlet, the brick and the laptop. Check the adapter cord's brick for a small LED that lights to indicate the presence of electricity.
Check the Battery
Battery issues can prevent proper charging, ranging from something as simple as a mis-seated battery to as serious as a completely dead battery. If the adapter seems to be functioning properly, try removing the battery and checking the small metal contacts in the laptop. Clean any corrosion or dirt from them to ensure a solid connection. Reseat the battery so that it clicks securely into place. If in doubt, try purchasing a replacement battery and see if that works.
Check the Adapter
Unless you keep your adapter cord in one place and never move it, every day use of the cord can cause the wires inside the insulating material to fray and kink. This wears them down, and can cause short circuits. The circuitry within the brick can also short out, preventing the delivery of the proper amount of voltage to the 1525. Use a voltmeter to double check that the cord is supplying the correct number of volts to the Inspiron.
Inside Problems
Internal issues can prevent a battery from charging, such as short circuits and a broken adapter port. The adapter port, the small opening you plug the end of the adapter cord into, is attached to the motherboard to carry the electricity to the various internal electronics. If this component breaks loose from the motherboard, the electricity can't go anywhere. A repair shop can fix this, as well as diagnose any other short circuits, for you.

Hi,
Welcome to FixYa!
Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Hi, my laptop crashes when the ac adaptor is plugged in yet it will charge the battery fine when the laptop is shut down.


Problem description: The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause: 1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.
If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

Check if the AC Adapter brick is getting warm when connected, if not then you need to replace the Adapter.

If AC Adapter brick is getting warm and still its not charging the Battery, please perform the following steps.

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

Note: With an extensive use of the notebook, some times notebook would store some static charges which indeed will stop the notebook from powering up or charging the battery.
The procedure to remove this static charges from the notebook is known as power drain.
Performing a power drain procedure will not effect any personal data or delete any pictures from the hard drive on your notebook.

If issue persists, contact Notebook manufacturer for further support.

HI, My Hp DV9000 will turn on but shuts off the


There could be a few possibilities here, first the ac adapter needs to be checked for voltage at the tip, it has to be between 18.5 and 19.5 volts. The battery is most likely dead or has dead cells which will not carry a charge. The third problem could be the motherboard. Try leaving the battery out and just run the laptop off the AC adapter....if the laptop runs fine , then the battery is bad and sending signals to the motherboard causing a shutdown. If the laptop is still shutting down or refusing to start, then there maybe a problem with the voltage resulator in the charger brick. If the battery and charging brick are in good condition, then the laptop may be getting a thermal shut down signal from the processor because of an overheating condition. The processor heats up immediately, if the laptop has been run overheating for some time, the thermal grease on the processor can be cooked off reducing the efficiency of heat bleed off, thus causing a shut down to protect the laptop from a terminal meltdown. Try using compressed air and blow out all the ventilation grills and compartment openings to clear out debris, hair and dust.

Laptop not working


Hi,

Disconnect the battery and the AC adapter from the computer.. Hold down the power button for 2 mins. Now connect the AC adapter only..

If it was an issue with the static electricity then it should fix it.

Else try changing the wall outlet and chk if the connections are fine.

If the brick on\f the ac adapter does not get warm then probable the adapter has gone bad and need to be replaced.

If the it still does not work then you can also try reseating the ram and the hard drive.

If all the above does not work then probable the power module on the nb has gone bad and need to be repaired.

Laptop not working


The Brick is the external power adapter, My acer uses model # ADP-60XB 19V X 3.16A= 60 Watts
Yours I believe is also a 19V but I believe the amps are 3.45 making yours a 65Watt power supply ac/dc adapter.

Test the voltage, if your unsure how, take it to Radio Shack and have them do it.

Do you have a different power brick to use? Sounds like the brick output no longer supplies the required voltage/amperage.

What is the DCV power output and Amperage of the brick?
and what is the Part number of the brick
