Shows Li-On battery charged when plugged into AC, shuts down when unplugged

My 3715 shows the battery (replaced once already to no avail) as charged 100%; once I unplug the AC charger, the battery reading immediately goes to 0% and it shuts down. Any suggestions?

Here is a palm article on the battery not holding charge-

My battery loses its charge very quickly

Like all Lithium Ion batteries, the battery in your device will eventually wear out. If you charge your device fully but it loses power after a few hours (or sooner), it may be time to replace the internal battery.

Sounds like you already did this. Do you have someone you know who has the same battery you could try? Or try your battery in their device?

Step #11

You can connect it via USB and let it charge that way a little while, then try charging it normally. It's called trickle charging-

Trickle charging
Some Palm devices have the ability to "trickle charge" from a USB port on a PC or Mac. This means that it receives a very small amount of charging from the USB port, even if it is not connected to its AC charger. If your device is capable of this function, the charging time will be significantly longer for a trickle charge (depending on the power rating of the PC USB port). However, the device may not charge at all on an unpowered USB hub (or for example off off a keyboard).

My laptop only works when plugged in to the AC adapter. Once I unplug the adapter the laptop shuts down after 30 seconds. It is probably not the battery because I used a new battery and the same thing...


Hi

No its not a problem with your adapter or battery.

It is related to your motherboard. There are some regulators which control back power to be used when the main power is off, and charging the battery etc., hence i would suggest you to please check the motherboard for any damages.

The toshiba laptop a505 S6980 will not charge the battery when the AC is plugged in and dies immediately if unplugged . Meters shows 0% available (plugged in), charging. But it is not really charging.


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

I donot know what is wz my battery but it is show 100% but in real it is like 15% plus it is only stay like 15min while it is unplugged


Hello,

This is a sign that you need a new battery. If you can not get a new battery try calibrating the old one. Here's how:

1. Charge the batter to full. (I know you stated it is like 15% but charge it till it shows full.
2. Unplug the AC adapter and let the battery drain. (If your notebook shut down b/c of low battery, keep powering it on until it will not come on anymore.)
3. Once drained, charge it again to full power and repeat the process at number 2.
4. Finally, charge the battery again. This time it should be recalibrated to hold a full charge close to the factory setting.

Good Luck

My lenovo x 60 tablet battery shows 0% available, not charging. I have got a new battery and it still shows the same message. can u provide a solution


Hi deepak_nangi,

There are two possible reasons why you are getting 0% available, not charging prompt even if you already got a new battery. It couls be an AC adapter issue or the DC In. Kindly follow the basic troubleshooting below that will help you isolate the issue:

1. Remove the battery from your system and use the AC adapter alone. If your system is not charging using the charger alone, then it's already defective and needed replacement.

2. You may also try using your AC adapter with other system where it is compatible. If it will work with other laptop then the issue is the DC In.

3. The DC In is the port where you are plugging in your AC Adapter. It is buit in to *********** board. If the DC In is loosed your system will not be charged as well. If this will be the case then the mother board needs replacement.

Doing these steps will help you determine the cause of the problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Battery not charging


Hi. I would suggest that you powerdrain your computer might fix this. To powerdrain your computer you must remove first the battery and unplug the ac adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, after that you must place back the battery and plugin the ac adapter then turn on your computer. If this doesnt work try to powerdrain again the laptop then just use the ac adapter to turn on your computer and that is without the battery. If this one work consider replacing the battery or you call the tech support dept of HP if you are still under warranty so that they would replace it with a new battery without any charge. Hope this helps.

Battery will not charge compaq presario v5000


I would try replacing your ac/adaptor (power plug) before troubleshooting any further. It sounds as if the adaptor is faulty. Check eBay, you can get a replacement for less than 10 dollars.

T30 2366 8GA After removing AC Adaptor battery icon shows Charging and working on AC


there is a switch in the plug end to the back of your comp its like a little swinging door that when you unplug out of back of comp this switch engages battery now if you unplug just from wall its going to see these 2 things the doors not shut but i have to keep working so it sets aside the plug still recognizing it of course but running off the battery trying to still find out why the powers not there but the plug is still plugged in and it will continually search until it reaches its falt point of dead battery
its like a battery backup for your system it gets unplug but wants to know where the power is

now in reference to the little swinging door i call it its a power over relay in your comp for some reason its not closing properly to allow battery to run by self
this is usually just a switch that needs adjusted in the motherboard configuration
