Question about IBM ThinkPad T21 2647 Notebook

1 Answer

Battery charging recepticle

The female plug on my charger shorted on the inside. It got real hot and I'm affraid that it may have melted the connections to the male recepticle in the computer as it does not make connection when plugged in. I repaired the charger and tested it on another computer. Works fine. I would loike to access the back of the male recepticle in the computer to see if a connection came unsoldered that I might resolder it. How do I gain access to this? it is a thinkpad 2653

Here is a link to the IBM manual - warning what you want to do is probably a complete teardown of the machine and soldering equipment.

You may want to buy the power jack before taking it apart.
Try www.laptopjacks.com they have the right one.

My samsung laptop charger gets hot and starts to melt when pluged in and powered up and does the same if i take the battery out please helptried a new battery and new charger could it be the jack on the...


I'm unclear however
Does the new charger get too hot? If so the problem is not the charger or the socket.
Does the laptop work with the new charger plugged in but no battery? If so the socket on the laptop is probably ok
Is the actual charger melting or is it just the plug that goes in the laptop that's getting hot, if it is the plug on both chargers then the socket will need repairing or resoldering, they are a weak point, the soldered pins go high resistance and can generate a lot of heat around the plug and socket. Its usually obvious if the socket is faulty because as you move the plug it makes contact intermittently.
DONT USE THE CHARGER THAT'S MELTING and if both are getting hot have the socket repaired.
If only the one charger getting hot the short is probably in the plug on that charger but read on
On a different note the genuine chargers should be over current protected and overheat protected, they should never melt.

Why would the plug melt on an Acer 5315?


Plugs melt when the connections 'short circuit'.
This means the positive and negative energy paths are touching.
Even the smallest AAA or 9V battery will get really warm if your connect the terminals together, and the power supply of a laptop computer pushes more more power (amps) than a little battery.
If it is indeed the power connection of your laptop has some melting damage, I must recommend you have your laptop and its power supply serviced or replaced, and to not plug it into the wall until you do. Fires have started by malfunctioning/damaged cameras and computers.

I hope that helps.

The battery does not charge anymore ,the bios setting says idle


remove battery and reseat.
Use VOM (Volt-Ohm Meter) and phsically check to make sure the power supply is putting out advertised voltage (typically 19-20 VDC)
Make sure power supply recepticle (the female part on the laptop itself) has not been broken or reamed out such that contact is not being made.

When you plug power supply in, does the charging light on the laptop come on?

Carefully read across two pins, without shorting to the case or other pins. You should have 1 hot, one ground, and usually another ground that acts as a charge inhibit to keep the scooter from driving while charging. I would expect to see around 27 Volts DCX on the output, maybe more without a load attached (battery)
