    I have the same problem.
    what do you do now you've realised your power supply is no good?
    which bit is no good; the fuse in the plug? the AC Adapter cuboid?

    Bought a new power adapter from ebay (about £15). However, a couple of months later, tripped over the lead while it was plugged in and it wasn't long before the laptop was dead. I had damaged the dc jack and it needed replacing. Bought a new one from ebay (about £5), googled for some disassembly hints, bought a disassembly manual from 9manuals and took laptop apart. Once the motherboard was out I got an electrician friend from work to do the soldering. There are sites that talk you through this step in great detail though This seems to be quite a common problem with laptops, but cheap to fix if you attempt it yourself. Mine has been back up and running again for 6 months now.

It sounds like your power supply is no good or the chip in side your laptop has over heated

I've just fixed one of these for a customer. The problem in their case was a damaged DC jack. Very fiddly to do, but definitely fixable!!

Packard bell easynote r1938 laptop powers on then turns off


The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

I have a Packard Bell Easynote TK87 which wont turn on. There is a small orange flashing light that keeps going off at the front but I don't know what it means, please help??

On most PC's it is an indication that the battery is dead and getting ready to shut down the pc. Thus, may answer why it wont turn on. If it has some age on it MY guess is the battery pack has failed and won't accept a charge. If the charger is good, remove the battery and plug in the charger and see if it will turn on. Some PC's require a battery to operate. You may be lucky. Battery packs are available at placed like Amazon and Ebay and Yahoo.;_ylc=X3oDMTM5cDRwa2xvBF9TAzc4NDcxODMyNgRrA2Vhc3lub3RlIGJhdHRlcnkEc2VtX2FjdAM1NjYyODM4Njg4BHNlbV9hZGcDNDc4OTQyMzEzBHNlbV9jbXADMjE1NDA3NzMEc2VtX2t3aWQDMTA1MzAyNTAzMQ--?p=easynote+battery&sem=Google

HI, Packard Bell Easynote L4, switches off after 5 seconds

no..this is a motherboard issue. if the power won't stay on, even without a battery, then it's the m/b..replacement is a bit dicey, but not impossible. The hard drive with data should be fine.
