Question about Fujitsu LIFEBOOK B2562 PC Notebook

1 Answer

Doesn't power on

The laptop, when plugged in to a known good power source flashes the adapter indicator on the status monitor panel for 2 seconds. It gives no sounds and no response when the power button is pushed. Any ideas? I'm going to re-seat the memory, but there are also 2 CMOS batteries in this computer and I am wondering if these are required for startup as both are well below the required voltage.

    I have good voltage at the motherboard (meaning adapter, jack, power leads are fine) Some laptops don't boot without a CMOS battery. Replacement adapters are about $20. Thanks for the help though.

Inspiron 1545-my AC adapter doesn't seem to charge my battery


Check the LED Your Dell Inspiron 1525 offers five small blue LED lights on the front left corner of the laptop that display the status of various areas of your machine. The middle light shows the charge status of the battery, with a solid light indicating charging. The light changes to a blinking sequence as it nears full charge and turns off when full. Without the adapter cord plugged in, the battery LED turns orange as the charge runs down. Check the color of the light to verify charging status.
Verify Connections and Power
Start with the simplest cause and work backwards to the laptop. Use a different electric device to check for electricity from the wall outlet. Verify that the connections of adapter cord are tight and secure at the wall outlet, the brick and the laptop. Check the adapter cord's brick for a small LED that lights to indicate the presence of electricity.
Check the Battery
Battery issues can prevent proper charging, ranging from something as simple as a mis-seated battery to as serious as a completely dead battery. If the adapter seems to be functioning properly, try removing the battery and checking the small metal contacts in the laptop. Clean any corrosion or dirt from them to ensure a solid connection. Reseat the battery so that it clicks securely into place. If in doubt, try purchasing a replacement battery and see if that works.
Check the Adapter
Unless you keep your adapter cord in one place and never move it, every day use of the cord can cause the wires inside the insulating material to fray and kink. This wears them down, and can cause short circuits. The circuitry within the brick can also short out, preventing the delivery of the proper amount of voltage to the 1525. Use a voltmeter to double check that the cord is supplying the correct number of volts to the Inspiron.
Inside Problems
Internal issues can prevent a battery from charging, such as short circuits and a broken adapter port. The adapter port, the small opening you plug the end of the adapter cord into, is attached to the motherboard to carry the electricity to the various internal electronics. If this component breaks loose from the motherboard, the electricity can't go anywhere. A repair shop can fix this, as well as diagnose any other short circuits, for you.

My acer aspire laptop has crashed---the power light is still on but the screen is black and it doesn't respond to anything I do! I can't even turn it off properly---is there a reset button or...


If your laptop screen is not working and is blank, you are out of luck as far as working on your computer. However, while there may be a major problem you need to troubleshoot, there are some easy solutions to keep in mind as well, such as brightness settings and your power source.

1. Check the power source. While you have presumably already attempted to turn your laptop on and off, the problem may lie with your AC power adapter. Is the power-indicator light on the adapter on? If not, your problem may lie here. However, whether or not you have a power indicator light on your adapter, consider unplugging it and plugging it into another outlet. This may turn on your laptop and take care of your blank-screen problem.

2. Check your brightness settings. While it seems like a simple oversight, the brightness on your laptop may sometimes be turned all the way down. Thus, the screen appears to be black, off or defective, when the problem is simply that the brightness is on its lowest setting. To fix the brightness, check your laptop keyboard. Most laptops have the brightness settings mapped to two keys at the top left of the keyboard, accompanied by a symbol (often a sun). Use these keys to fix your brightness, but keep in mind that some laptops require that you press the Function key at the same time as the Brightness key.

3. Check the status of your laptop battery itself. There should be a battery indicator on the laptop that is connected to the battery. This indicator is either on the bottom of the laptop or (likely) on the side. If there is no indicator, your battery itself may be the problem, and may require replacing. Keep in mind that older batteries of the nickel-cadmium variety are more likely to decharge over time and forget their initial maximum charge level; this may be a particular issue to users of older laptops.

4. Find a VGA connector and hook up your laptop to an external monitor if the above steps have not alleviated the blank-screen problem. Turn on the computer and the external monitor. Does the external monitor light up? If so, the blank screen is likely due to a video subset problem/LCD problem in your laptop.

5. Consider that a deeper problem may exist if the external monitor did not light up This problem may lie in the motherboard. In this case, taking the laptop to a professional repairman or sending it off to the manufacturer is recommended.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards from fixya

My IBM ThinkPad has shut down and won't turn back on. What can I do to get it to start-up.


Hi,

I suggest try to isolate the problem first what could be the cause, If its software or hardware. I suggest try doing these steps and see if it works.

NO POWER

1. Verify the status indicator.
The power status indicator anespera.gif is illuminated whenever the computer is on.

2.Check all power connections.

3. Inspect the AC Adapter
See if there are physical damage, and ensure the power cable is firmly attached to the power brick and the system.

4. Remove the machine from any docking station or port replicator.

5. Remove all devices and then test for system power with minimal devices attached.

You might need these things; Philips Screw Driver, Tweezer and any Flat Bladed tool.


5.1. Disconnect the AC adapter.

5.2. Remove the battery pack.

5.3. Remove any externally or internally installed options and other devices.

5.3a. Remove the memory module (DIMM).

5.3b. Remove the Mini PCI and Communications Daughter Cards if applicable.

5.3c. Remove the Ultrabay devices, usually CD-ROM, CD-RW, or DVD drives, that are customer replaceable.

5.3d. Remove the hard drive.

4. Wait for 30 seconds before reconnecting the devices and power sources.

5. Reinstall only the memory DIMM and the known good battery pack or AC adapter to test the system with minimal devices attached first.

6. Reinstall each device one at a time that was removed in the steps above.

NOTE:

If happens you're not comfortable doing those steps I suggest try to get help from someone who's capable doing those steps or go to any local computer center.

Hope it helps.

Monitor shuts down after 8 seconds


brian967, Well we know what happened after 8 seconds! Now tell me all about seconds 1, 2, 3, 4....7???? You could also tell me if the LCD panel is BLACK or BLACK and BLANK??? How old is the unit? Do you own a soldering pencil 25-40watt? Haven't you visited YOUTUBE to see video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly"/"LCD monitor repair" ??? How is your PC doing? Is it working perfectly when connected to a KNOWN GOOD monitor??? Will your LCD monitor (unknown model#) do same thing when connected to KNOWN GOOD pc? Do you know and understand the BLACK SCREEN flashlight test to evaluate "switch-mode-power-supply" status?? Do you have a digital camera for taking 2 to 3 inch "close-ups" of parts on circuit boards? Does this unit have a "lay on floor" black brick switch-mode-supply, or does unit plug directly into the power-strip or wall outlet(internal SMPS)??? Brian, do some reading in my FIXYA profile so that you will understand all of your options for repairing your unit.But more important is that I want you to know the ROOT CAUSE for your need to repair something that should not have failed in the first place.

Dell e137fp monitor flashing green...


Below you will find my recommendations for troubleshooting this issue:

1. Reseat the power cord and verify a good power source.

To reseat the power cord, follow the steps below:

1.1 Power down the system.
1.2 Unplug the power cord.
1.3 Wait approximately one minute.
1.4 Reseat the power cord.
1.5 Verify that the power cord is plugged directly into a known good power outlet.

2. Verify that the monitor is receiving power from a known good outlet and bypass any power strips.

To test the power outlet, perform the following steps:

2.1 Unplug the monitor power cable from the power outlet.
2.2 Plug in a different device, and verify that the device is operational.
2.3 If there is no power try another outlet. Remove any power strips and try plugging directly into the main power outlet.

3. Verify the monitor is powered on and the power button is engaged.

Ensure that the monitor is powered on and that the power button is fully engaged. To do so, check the power LED on the front of the monitor; it should be lit.

NOTE: There are two types of power switches:
A mechanical switch characterized by a long travel. You have to push it further and you will hear an audible click.
An electrical switch that has a short travel and almost no click.

A lit monitor LED can be any of the following:

* Green
* Blinking green
* Yellow
* Blinking yellow
* A combination, such as alternating green and yellow

Any of these states indicate the monitor is receiving power and that you should proceed.

4. Swap power cables.

To try a known good power cable on the monitor, follow the instructions below:

4.1 Turn off a working monitor.
4.2 Unplug the cable from the back of the working monitor, and unplug the cable from the wall.
4.3 Unplug the cable from the monitor in question.
4.4 Plug in the cable that came from the working monitor.

5. Run the monitor self test.

To run the monitor self test, perform the following steps:

5.1 Power off both the computer and the monitor.
5.2 Unplug the video cable from the computer or video card.
5.3 Reseat the power cord to the monitor, ensuring it is plugged into a known-good outlet.
5.4 Power on the monitor.

NOTE: The monitor self test will move around on some monitor models. If the monitor self test moves, allow it to move to the affected areas of the monitor to check for the problem described.

If the Self test failed, it's possible that the monitor is faulty. Contact dell to check if it's still under warranty so they can replace it.
