Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
My Dell Latitude 610 won't start. I have tried several power adapters & docking stations and each one will shut off whenever it is connected to my laptop.
Whenever I plug my laptop into another power adapter the little green light on each adapter will shut off.
Tried switching batteries, no luck. My battery works fine with other laptops.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
I have two old Dell 610, both had the problem of not switching on via the button. It is caused by the design of the tactile switch. Over the years, the mechanism grinds away at the plastic inside, and debris accumulates in the switch. Its tricky to fix. Remove all power leads and the battery. Remove the trim that covers the switch. by inserting a small flat screwdriver into the slot on the right of the trim and levering it up. You can now see the switches. Now use a dressmakers pin to lever away the metal catches on either side of the switch. It's really fiddly but achievable. When both sides are free, lift the tiny metal case away from the body of the switch, the soldered tab at the front will break away but it's not needed. Now you can remove the button, and then the metal disc which forms the contact. You should now see a pile of plastic debris, which you can blow or brush away. Re-assemble the disc and the button, and clip the metal case of the button back on. replace the trim. That's it. I suspect this must happen to many devices with the same design of button, because both my laptops had it. Photo of switch attached

Will your laptop start if the battery is removed and the power supply is plugged into the laptop? This would indicate a battery problem.
Make sure you are using the correct power supply for the DELL D610.
It should be PA-12 family. Model AA22850.Output 19.5V.
