Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

My Dell600 won't power on with or without A/C adapter

The original adapter (which came w/computer)blinks green but shuts off when plugged to computer. I bought a new adapter & battery. The new adapter reads green when plugged into wall but shuts off when attached to computer. The new battery also does not power up the computer. Prior to this have had no problems. (computer bought used 4 mos ago) Since I'm not computer savy I don't know if I was supposed to charge anything prior to trying to start-up?

Thanks for your assistance

Hi!
If the unit was a Brand New purchased, and still 4 months old, its better to avail the "warranty" of the unit, to save you from any trouble. But if it is a second hand without any warranty, you can eithertake this risky step or submit it to a certified service center.
The risky step is to open your laptop, and check the "charger terminal" for loose contact, or solder detached terminals.

Power light flashing amber


Follow the steps given below. (Please be careful when handling computer electrical components like batteries and AC Adapters)
  • Remove the battery and hold down the power button for few seconds (to drain all remaining power)
  • Power up the computer without the battery with the A/C adapter plugged in.
  • Wait for few seconds and plug the battery back in
After a few tries the computer should start charging normally. The amber battery stops blinking and turn green when fully charged.

Monitor won't turn on after a few hours of being shut off


If it EVER works, then the problem is not a failed part, but a weak part. The most likely component type to give you such problems are capacitors. But very few repair techs know how to find such problems, and even fewer have the equipment needed to find the bad one(s) in-circuit. The failure mode is high ESR (ESR means Equivalent Series Resistance). The lower the ESR, the better. Capacitors with high ESR cannot stabilize circuits which demand high pulse currents, such as in switch mode power supplies.

No power battery flashes 4 orange


If it is orange or is blinking orange, the battery charge is low or expended. Remove the battery and re-install it. Plug in the AC adapter and connect it to an outlet. Turn on the computer.

When the battery status light blinks green and orange, the battery temperature is too hot for charging. Shut down the laptop, detach the AC adapter, and allow the laptop and battery to return to room temperature before attempting to charge the battery.

If the battery status light blinks orange rapidly, the battery itself may be defective.

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera,...


Because the camera is what is technically known as 'Portable'and is designed to work purely from the internal battery. the Power Adapter merely charges the internal battery

If it happens only when you move the adapter plug inside the power jack, it's likely that you have a problem with the power jack inside the laptop. The power jack has to be resoldered or replaced.
If it happens even without touching the adapter plug, the problem could be related to the faulty power adapter.
You can test the power adapter with a voltmeter and find out if the ouputed voltage is correct. If the voltage is not correct, replace the adapter.

But don't trust that even if the output votage matches specifications. It's possible that the power adapter doesnt' work correctly under load. Test your laptop with another known good adapter. If the laptop works fine with another adapter, your power adapter is defective and has to be replaced.

Sir i have acer 4720Z series laptop. when I plug in the power adapter it show adapter light green. when adapter pin connect the laptop then light show blink and laptop not charging.


Your laptop battery seems to be broken.
To be a 100% sure, can the computer run on only battery?
Try to have the computer plugged in to the charger for a couple of hours without starting it.
