Question about Dell Latitude D620 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell Latitude D620 isn't getting power to the mainboard.

Hello. I'm trying to fix my dads Dell Latitude D620 laptop. It was working fine then he said it wasn't doing anything when he hooked up the ac adapter.
I checked the ac adapter, I also checked the battery and ac jack.
All of the above are in perfect condition, I even OHM tested the cord and ac jack.
He said it was working up till the battery died.
From what I can see this is a somewhat common problem, I tried the charger from my brothers Dell laptop and it does nothing, no power light or charge light.

From what I've found, people want over $200 to repair the mainboard. I found one thats used for under $130 and I'm going to go that route if I can't figure this out.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Dell Latitude D620, Black Screen/Power On


It is the backlight! That laptop uses a fluorescent lamp. It is bad.
If you look carefully at the screen, you will see the Windows desktop (or whatebver you are running). It just needs to be lit up.... from the back. Tel them to replace the LCd screen or replace the lamp.

Hope this helps!

Dell Latitude D620 Gray Screen


I don't know about that particular laptop but it sounds like a loose connection between mainboard and screen plus a bad inverter (regulates and supplies voltage to the actual screen from the main power source). Laptops typically have the inverter hidden somewhere in the frame that surrounds the actual lcd screen. Sometimes this regulator is part of a small circuit board, sometimes it is not (I suppose it might be part of the actual lcd in some cases, but i've never seen that). I would investigate things further in that direction and just hope your lcd itself isnt bad.
