You Probably need to replace the DC Power Jack which is where the laptop plugs into the computer. If it is loose then it is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see ifthe little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptopapart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so youwill have to desolder the old and solder a new one. Make sure your power cord is good. Some powercords have a light on the adapter portion that lights up when plugged in.
Hi Assume you are trying this on battery and mains? 1st thing is to check if the AC power adaptor is giving out any power, which you can do by obtaining a multimeter and setting it to 50 volts DC. Place the positive probe in the centre of the adaptor plug and the negative against the outside of the adaptor plug and see if you get a reading. this will confirm that there is power getting to the laptop
(NOTE: THIS IS TO BE TAKEN FROM THE DC END of the power adaptor NOT from where the kettle lead AC source enters the adaptor.. if in doubt, get someone who is competent with using a meter)
2nd, is to check that the power button is not sticking and that the small plastic pin between the laptop body and the screen ( I think these have one) is not stuck, preventing it booting
3rd, If you are getting power by AC to the laptop, check the condition of the DC jack socket, if it is loose, appears to spark whrn the jack is plugged in or crackles, this will need replacing
4th, If the above do not work, it is possible that the main fuse in the laptop has gone...specialist repairers job.
If the power point is ok try using another AC adaptor of some of your known person who is using the same laptop, and check it should work else the fault will be with laptop and you need to get the same checked at the service center,
make sure you do not open the laptop on your own as you may loose the warrenty of the same
Did you wiggle it a bit when plugged in? You can't tell from looking on the outside if the plug is fine because it goes bad inside where it is soldered. This is a very common problem, and have fixed many laptops with the same problem. All of them had a bad solder connection inside. Did you dtermine the plug was fine by plugging another ac adapter to your laptop or you just checked it visually? Hit me up I will solve this one for you.
Keep in mind since you cleaned it out, only have the AC adaptor hooked up to rule the battery out. If the laptop stays on with only the ac adaptor hooked up and doesn't shut off then you know that the battery is faulty. If it still shuts off even with just the ac adaptor hooked up then it could be the ac adaptor.
Also check one more thing, with only the ac adaptor hooked up, wiggle the cord where it plugs into the laptop and see if the laptop shuts off, if it does then the dc jack on the motherboard is loose and needs to be resoldered back into place so it stays put.
Hi ! While power off, disconnect the power adaptor. Take off battery.
Plug the power adaptor back and try to start ! Is it running?
If yes, than the power adaptor is OK.
Now shut down and disconnect the power adaptor. Put back your battery and start! Leave it untill you 'empty' the battery. Do not start your laptop.
Plug the power adaptor and do not start your laptop yet. Is there a led idicator showing that the battery is charging ? Does it shows when the battery is full charged (e.g. red/yellow=charging, to green/off charged)? If not, leave it for at least 3 hours. After that, start your laptop (adaptor is plugged) and see if you still have an icon saying charging 99%.
If that is the case, then something is wrong with the battery.
Check your warranty, and replace it. DO NOT OPEN the battery - nothing interesting you will find inside - nothing you can do !
I had a similar issue with the Armada M700 from Compaq. Never did figure it out exactly. But I do know this. When you unplug the power chord and take out the battery and plug the power chord back in while the battery is out usually for some reason it turned on allowing me to replace the battery which would then begin charging. Your problem interests me because I can really relate!
Is the power adaptor made for the country you are living in? It's possible the plug you are plugging it into has a higher current than the plug was certified for. Have you tried plugging the laptop in in another location (like, in a different building)? You may just need to replace the adaptor, how old is it?
