Dell latitude D600 battery charge light flashing

My Dell laptop's battery used to work properly and charge and show a green light flashing while charging. Now I can't get the battery to charge and when it is plugged in I am seeing the charge light flash orange quickly 4 times, followed 1 longer green light flash.

The computer appears to work fine while plugged, but won't work when it is not "plugged in".

have inspiron E1505 laptop. When i plug power cord in it says i need to have a dell 65w ac adaptor for proper charging. (that is what I have) computer works fine when plugged in but will not charge. you also sometimes have to wiggle end where it plugs into laptop to get proper connection. Any thoughts?

Thanks
BT

    hi, my dell E1505 will not charge the battery and the laptop will not identify the battery and will say used a 65w power adaptor or higher. i have tried new batteries, new adaptor, the laptop works only with the adaptor plug in or with a fully charged battery from another laptop.i think is a board fault. do any have a solution to this problem? thanks

    I had an hdmi cord plugged into my laptop connecting to my hd tv and when i removed the cord from my laptop sound no longer plays. There's an x on the sound icon on my laptop. But if i plug the hdmi cord back into the laptop and play music the sound works fine

You have a ground fault issue in the DC JACK.

There are escentially 4 circuits in the jack and one is not making contact.

1: Negative Charge circuit (outter ring)
2: Negative Run circuit (outter ring)
3 Positive (Inner Ring)
4: Signal (center pin)

I believe the negative charge circuit (outter ring) is not making contact internally. Typically what happens on that model DC Jack is the tension contact metal becomes fatigued, and does not touch the outter ring.

This could come from Heat causing early fatigue of the metal.
Or normal wear, the metal has simply worn out from regular insert/removal.

My suggestion is that you allow the batteries to fully recharge(which only happens when the computer is fully off, when the battery is deep discharged.

that will take around 6 to 10 hours each..

    then either the battery is history or the motherboard lost part of it's functionality. Only way to tell, with least investment, is to check battery with someone elses charger configuration.

My Dell laptop's battery charging circuit faulty.


try to remove your batt and check if laptop works fine with ac adapter alone.

if yes then put batt in then check how much charge you have if you have about 10% then update the bios immediately.

if fails then have the batt replaced.

Go to support.dell.com and download the latest bios firmware to update it. If it still does not work then most likely it is already a hardware issue so you need to contact dell support for the hardware issue.

I would say its defective. Bring it back to where you bought it and show them. Bring your laptop charger also so you can show them it in action. Hope this helped.

Dell battery problem


Hi Roy,

Dell, apparently have had some problems with their batteries, as they called back some, including yours.
Goto Dells homepage here and goto -> a bit down this page -> Step 1: Is your battery model affected?

Hope your battery is among these, as you will be able to get a new one.
regards

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

Orange and green light flash


The flashing battery light is an indication that the system is attempting to charge the battery. The orange light indicates a problem charging one of the battery cells. This usually means that the battery either needs to be recalibrated or replaced. To recalibrate the battery just use the system until the battery is dead, then recharge and repeat the process twice, after which time the battery should be recalibrated. If this doesn’t fix the flashing orange light then the battery may need to be replaced.

hope this helps
