Re: Orange and green light flash

The flashing battery light is an indication that the system is attempting to charge the battery. The orange light indicates a problem charging one of the battery cells. This usually means that the battery either needs to be recalibrated or replaced. To recalibrate the battery just use the system until the battery is dead, then recharge and repeat the process twice, after which time the battery should be recalibrated. If this doesn’t fix the flashing orange light then the battery may need to be replaced.

hope this helps

Hi i am using dell latitude d600 problem with charging the battery 3 or 4 time orange light flash n 1 time green light . im unable to use my laptop with battery it working well with A.C power

Try to perform power drain. Take out the battery unplug the power adapter then press and hold the power button for 30secs. Put the battery back in then plugin in the power adapter then turn on the computer. If same issue occur, then you need to replace your battery.

My Dell laptop's battery charging circuit faulty.

try to remove your batt and check if laptop works fine with ac adapter alone.

if yes then put batt in then check how much charge you have if you have about 10% then update the bios immediately.

if fails then have the batt replaced.

Dell latitude D600 battery charge light flashing

Go to and download the latest bios firmware to update it. If it still does not work then most likely it is already a hardware issue so you need to contact dell support for the hardware issue.

Dell latitude d600 blinking battery light

I would say its defective. Bring it back to where you bought it and show them. Bring your laptop charger also so you can show them it in action. Hope this helped.

Dell D600 Doesn't switch on

check to see if the charger has current flowing. maybe the charger not charging the battery.
get hold of a voltage tester hold the black end on the outter round part stick the rred end in the middle place it on the male prong you should get a 19v reading.anything like 14v 10v or loweer can charge the battery.if you get a19v 18.blah v reading then you need a motherboard repair or replacement
if so get one cheap on ebay
