Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook
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?
DONT BUY DELL. Same thing just happened to my latitude d610. Can't even turn it on - bettery wont charge. Its less than 3yrs old. My 8+ year old HP still works.

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.
