Battery and Charger problems

I can not use my laptop with the charger plugged in. When the laptop is going just on battery it is fine but as soon as i plug the charger in the laptop turns off instantly and i can not turn it back on untill i take the battery out and put it back in. When i plug the charger in before i turn the laptop on (so the orange light comes on) and try turn it on it makes a few noises then the fan goes mental and wont stop untill i take the battery out again.

AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.


So your saying the charger will charge the battery, as long as the laptop is off...But when it is charged, you remove the ac adapter, start up the laptop, running on battery power alone, then hook the ac adapter to it, and the laptop cuts off..???

My Pavilion g6-1b79dx notebook will not charge even with a new battery and charger. The light indicating the charger is plugged in is blinking white


When you say it won't charge, does it charge at all?

1. It indicates that it is charging, but as soon as you unplug the charger the battery quickly or immediately indicates it is dead. If the laptop is off, the LED on the laptop shows it is charging but the battery is always dead,

2. It is as if you didn't have the charger plugged in. No light on the laptop at all when the charger is plugged in.

Possible solutions:

1. The battery has died and is no longer capable of taking a charge. An alternate explanation if you can't even get the laptop to turn on even though the laptop charge LED is on, is that the internal power supply that converts the incoming and battery voltage to all the voltages required has died.

2. The power connector inside the laptop is a common failure point. The solder joints break from various minor shocks over time. This is going to become more common with lead-free solder as it is more brittle. Less likely is that the charging circuit inside the laptop has failed.

Toshiba Satellite A45-S120 laptop battery does not charge


Sounds like you need a new battery. Try removing the battery and running the machine on mains power. If that works, you know the charger is ok. Its usual for batteries to deteriorate over a few years, so my money would go on a new one.

Remove the battery and try again.

If the laptop works ok with the charger connected (with battery taken out), then the battery needs to be replaced.

Refer to user guide on how to remove the battery.

Charger light going off when laptop plugged in. Light is on when no computer is plugged in, but as soon as i do the light goes out and no charge is being sent.


its usually the other way around iof the battery is fully charged. Light off when removed from the charger. Have you tried another charger? Especially try another battery if you have onje. It may be the battery itself is at fault.

I suggest taking the unit to a PC shop and have them check both the condition of the battery and the Connedction /charger unit

Thanks for using FIXYA

Medion 2310 laptop switches off as soon as charger is plugged in


1. It can be a screw loose inside the unit shorting something out.
2. The AC Port is damaged and needs to be re soldered.
3. Bad motherboard.

I've seen this be a bad motherboard more than not, however it has been the other 2 options from time to time. Most likely need to take it apart and you can see if it's the first 2 and if not than your board is bad.
