1)try to check also if you'll see a solid GREEN LED light on your ac adapter.if yes, possible problem could be on the battery port or the battery itself

2)With regard to the battery meter,where did you find that?If not in the BIOS,try this.restart computer and press F2 several times .Once you're inside the BIOS.try to go to the battery option-try to see if the battery indicator would say 100% also.

3)if 100%,try another battery if you have one.use only the battery as the only source of power..if a known good battery works then the problem is with your old battery.if a known good battery won't work,that would mean that you have a problem with your battery port.if that is the case, you may have to replace your motherboard for that but if you still have an active hardware warranty on your pavillion dv 4000.try calling the manufacturer for a motherboard replacement and try asking also if your battery is part of any recall.

4)if the battery meter in the BIOS does not say 100%, try charging the battery for an hour then go back to the BIOS try to see if the battery meter would go up.if it increases the battery meter try using the battery as the only source of power...if nogo,go back procedure 3.

Unit is indicating that the battery on my Magellan 400 indicates dangerously low. How can I resolve this? The indash charger doesn't seem to be the problem.

i fix these 4000 and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your 4000 still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

this should help you....let me know if you need more help or info

Computer dies FAST when unplugged even though power may register 100% befor unplugging also laptop does not seem to recognize battery properly . battery power goes from 100% to 35% overnight if unplug

You have a dead battery or the charging circuit is faulty. If you have had the battery since you purchased the laptop, then it is worn out and needs to be replaced.

It acts like the heads are dirty but they have been cleaned

4000 hours is not bad for a clean machine that is fresh

they reset the drum and capstan run time meters when the machine is serviced: so you can have circuit boards that are getting tired.. The boards have lots of Surface Mount Electrolytic Can Capacitors... the parts used are rated for 3000 hours of use at 100 deg Celcius.. they last longer as the temperature goes down..

they have a chemical inside that dries up...

so the machine may need overhaul.

but an old tape can cause this, a worn & dirty pinch roller can cause this also...

Wont charge anymore? hp dv 4000

Does the computer acknowledge when you plug it in? Are there any status lights indicating AC power? If not then the electrical contacts in the laptop power plug may have broken. If you are not under warranty, you could take a peak inside the case where the connector is and possibly fix it with a soldering iron. In the meantime I'd backup any important data.
