Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
A while ago, i made the power jack external because the wires were broken. I used like that for quite some time without ant noticeable problem. One day, i noticed that one of the wires was really hot and was not charging (I believe that i inverted the cables, brown with the white). Since then, it is not charging the battery and is not working as an AC power ? Consequently is not starting. I do not have an extra charged battery to test the computer. Is there a fuse somewhere that i blowed? thanks cesar
Hi, since u say the wires were hot , that means -ev and +ev got shorted, that might have damaged the power supoply, or the polarity is reversed,if u can manage to open the adapter, then try replacing the fuse if present , and the filter capacitor. let me know
