AC Adaptor Problem

The little thingy where you plug the laptop to the AC is very loose and a little bubble pops up saying my I have a critical battery problem which means the AC thingy isn't working, right? Ok. I called Dell, which is pointless, and they said I need a new motherboard or I could borrow a friend's docking station to see if that would work. Am I really gonna have to buy a new motherboard or do you think the docking station will work? Will I loose the info on the computer if I do have to get a new motherboard? Would it be better to send it to Dell to have it fixed or could I have it done locally? Help!

Laptop is charging but cant turn on


When you say "you fixed the thingy" (ac jack), how did you fix said "thingy", did you open the laptop and replace the damaged/broken "thingy"? Need more info. Perhaps the "thingy" isn't fixed? Try remove any DVD,CD, USBs from the laptop, removing the "thingy" , remove the battery, Hold down the on/off button for 10 seconds, replace the battery, replace the "thingy" push the on/off button. That said, When you fixed the "thingy" was ALL power removed from the laptop AC plug, Battery, If not a short may have occurered.

Acer laptop will not boot up


Dead (ish) Laptop.

Press the power button momentarily to check if it is hibernating or in stand by. If this doesn't work;

Try firstly removing the laptop's battery as it may be at a critical voltage and the system will not start because of it. Plug in your ac adaptor and monitor what happens. Does the power light illuminate? If it does it should then boot up, if it doesn't, try a known good ac adaptor before going any further.
If the adaptor is fine and the laptop still won't start, then you may have a mother board fault and should contact a dealer/repairer for further advice.
Hope this helps.

Acer battery no charge/plugged in "battery is criticically low"


This is a tricky issue, it's either a problem related to the battery or the adaptor.

Try removing the battery and just plug in the adaptor and see if the computer will boot. If it does then there's a problem with the battery and you just need to replace it, if it doesn't then there's a few other things it could be.

The two most likely options is that the adaptor is bad, or the AC port on the computer has become loose. Most of the computers I've repaired that had these symptoms was that the AC port was bad if the battery wasn't. The best way to test this is to plug in the adaptor and just see if it wiggles around a lot, if it's loose then it might not be connecting to the board correctly and will need to be soldered bad on. If it's not loose then the adaptor might be bad, you can test another adaptor on your laptop or that adaptor on someone else's but be carefull, I can't stress this enough, if you're going to switch adaptors you have to make sure that the voltage IS EXACTLY THE SAME and has the same amps, if the voltage is off you can damage the computer, if the amps is off you can damage the adaptor.

If by some fluke it doesn't seem to be the battery, and you tested the adaptor and the AC port doesn't feel loose, then the charging circuit in the laptop might be shot, in which case you'll need a new motherboard.

I think that covers everything, sorry for the wall of text

What is the ac adaptorfor sdr-h40


It's the little black box that's got "Panasonic AC Adaptor" written on it. It looks a little like a power brick, but you can put a battery into there. (You also need to plug in the DC power cord, which goes into the same compartment on the camera as the battery does. It looks like a battery with a cord.) Hope this helps.
