    Same bug: DELL is defective battery=

    When you replace ONE cell in the Dell Laptop battery pack, and

    certify that now all battery cells charge well and quickly, the,

    DELL battery pack, now upgraded,(repaired), with new cell=DOES NOT

    WORK at all in the Dell computer.

    I heard there is a secret to zap few terminal in the battery pack,

    or twicked to, to start the triac conducting, to be active.

    Which terminals are to be energized, to ACTIVATE the

    Dell battery pack?

    Once the pack is activated, it WILL charge in the laptop, not before.

    and, then, you have a "NEW" battery working for you 4 more years.

    (untill next time for another exchange, so save your OLD battery

    pack, as there is some very good cells in it)

    THE Pack contains 8 cells, only one may short, 7 are good.

    When one shorts, it shuts down the entire pack.

    Power drill packs, are the same problem.

Very bad DELL battery pack, now NEW.
Dell pack contais 8 cells, one may short. Save old packs.
Open it and replace the shorted cell, verify all cells are good
and charging. NOW your pack must be ACTIVATED by
zapping the triac to turn it on. Two terminal must be zapped.
Afterwards, charge pack in laptop.
Now you are good for another 4 years.
Save your old Dell battery packs, many cells are like new.
Power drill's have like battery arrangement, one cell may fail.

Try entering the system setup at startup, usually pressing the Delete or F2 key, it may also indicate whick key to press. Once in the setup look for a battery utility. Running the utility, if there is one, will calibrate the battery.

Battery failure. The power cells in your laptop are a set of 6 batteries inside of a long battery pack case. Inside the case, any one of the 6 cells can die or no longer charge. A replacement is the only option.

How to Open a Laptop Battery & Replace the Lithium Ion

Laptop batteries, like all rechargeable battery packs, lose their charging capacity over time. Because new Laptop batteries are expensive, replacing the individual cells inside the battery casing can save a lot of money. However, rebuilding a battery sometimes does not work as expected, so it’s important to be willing to purchase a new laptop battery if the procedure fails.
HP Pavilion DV1100 Battery 12 cells
1、Allow the laptop battery to run down completely. Turn off your laptop, then remove the battery. Write down the model number located on your battery to help identify the type of Li-ion replacement cells you need to purchase.
2、Split open a small section of the laptop battery pack (at the seam) with a screwdriver or craft knife. Continue to pry the plastic case loose moving around the outer edge until the entire top is free. This may take a bit of force.
3、Note the number of cells inside the case (usually four to eight). Write down the part number and voltage information printed on the cell casings. Draw a diagram showing the arrangement of the cells and how they are connected, or take a few photos to help with reassembly.
4、Purchase the correct number and type replacement batteries from online shop such as, based on your battery model and cell specifications. Six Li-ion cells typically cost around $30 to $40.
5、Carefully remove each cell using a craft knife and wire cutters as necessary. Each battery pack is different, but the cells are usually wrapped in a plastic casing with metal contacts attached to one end. Lay the metal contacts, wires and casing material aside.
6、Use double-sided tape or a solder gun (only if necessary) to attach the metal contacts to the cells and circuit board. When finished, the old cells should be completely stripped (naked) and the new cells should look like the old ones as much as possible.
7、Place the new cells inside the case, referring to your diagram or photos if necessary. Glue the battery(Compaq DV6000 Battery) pack top back on. Charge the new battery for at least 24 hours before using it.
Tips & Warnings
Keep an eye on the new battery while it charges for the first time. If the contacts are not connected properly, the battery could overheat and cause damage to the laptop.

I have a laptop acer aspire 6935g that its battery charges for a while and then stops & after it says 100%charged charger is logged off then it remains about two minute and shut down , help please&...

Hi , Laptop batteries deteriorate with the passage of time and upon every charge and discharge cycle, the battery looses some of its charge holding capacity and thus the backup time reduces. Eventually, the battery comes to a point where it can not hold charge any more and requires to be replaced. So, it is recommended that you replace the battery with a NEW and GENUINE one, which would give you good back up time. Also, don't discharge the battery completely as it damages it the most and whenever the AC power is available keep the AC adapter connected to your laptop. In this way the battery lasts longer and serves you when AC power not available.
First, make sure that the battery you have is the original not any replacement. Replacements usually don't last much due to the quality of the individual cells inside the battery pack. You can google a bit to find out the details such as photo, number of cells, Amps etc, which would help you assess the quality and specifications of the battery. Furthermore, as I stated earlier, battery suffers damage when discharged completely and on every charge-discharge cycle. Therefore, it certainly depends upon the make, number of cells and how many times the battery was charged/ discharged. Thus, needs replacement
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

My battery doesnt hold a charge even when the battery is full it only last a couple hours,im forever charging it,and it turns its self off.

Hi, most causes of battery cell running down very fast is because the problem is not from the battery, but from the cell phone it self.

Some times a phone will just start malfunctioning due to when something happens to a phone earlier and no action was taking during that particular period in time, it might make the cell phone to malfunction later on.

The problem of the phone is an IC chip inside on the board of the cell phone that has been damaged that is making the battery cell to discharge.
You will need to replace the IC inside the phone.

The more you don't repair the IC on time inside the phone,you will keep on buying more batteries.

To fix or replace the damaged IC, you can contact an expert on phone repair for's a little bit technical to handle.

Hope it helped.

Where can I get battery power pack(shell with recharchable batteries inside) for metz 45 cl series,good second hand,off market brand,or even geniune brand,thank you

I have a lot of old 45-40 Series Metz 45 NiCd battery packs, that I will eventually rebuild with new NiCd batteries. I got them from Photographic Trader magazine and from ebay. I've heard that NiCd cells are going out of production, in favour of NiMH cells. I've found it's easier to put NiCd or NiMH cells in the alkaline battery holder, the flash recycle time is only slightly longer. I charge them separately out of the holder, or in the holder with a connector I made. NiMH cells need a suitable charger, with peak detection, as NiMH cells don't like being overcharged.

The battery does not get any charge, it looks as it is.


This is an indication that the battery pack has shorted out and is not functioning. The batteries in laptops have a thermal fuse inside that blows if the pack gets to hot to prevent exploding. When the battery cells die sometimes they will short out and pull to much current, this causes them to quickly overheat. The fuse blows and the battery cools down but is dead because of the shorted battery cell. The laptop can see a battery but can't charge it because of the blown cell and fuse. Its time to replace it.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Hi there, im having a problem with my compaq laptop, its not turning on. the power pack (extention cord) is functional as it works in a friends laptop but it isnt working in mine can you suggest something?

If the power adapter is not charging your laptop but it chargers a friends, then that means the DC input jack inside your laptop has either broken off, gotten pushed in, or has otherwise been disconnected. Unfortunately you will need to have the machine serviced. Your best bet would be to call Compaq support.
