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

The battery died when the power adaptor was plugged in. The light to show the battery was being charged was not lit but the light on the power supply was. I am guessing its the battery. I have had some...

Just check the Battery diagnostics if you have the software installed...If it is there then it will be in Start - Help & Support - Troubleshotting Tools - Battery Check.......If it shows the battery needs to be replaced contact Packard Bell...Since you told me that the A/C Adapter is not functioning and after you wiggled the lead it started functioning then if the battery test passes you will have to ask for a new A/C Adapter...

You may need BIOS update. Check your CMOS time at bios page.
If time is wrong, set it up and try again. If this is solved the problem, change the CMOS battery.

The battery is probably faulty, try a different one. If it does the same thing with a different battery, then must be a short in behind the battery socket on the laptop. In that case better take it to service.
