If the player has a rechargeable battery older than 2 years, it is probably going to need to be replaced. Look at the volts-Ampere-hours rating, and replace with same volts more ampere-hours AH rating.

Adapter from power cord gets power, but is not charging samsung rv511 laptop

Step 1:
b> If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge. You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly. When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop. It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling. If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power. This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury. A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible. Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open. The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors. Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery. Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it. See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed. If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced. If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number. Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay. If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems. Troubleshoot Mag Safe adaptors

I have an Acer Aspire One and when I plug the charger in I have to spin it or wiggle it or both to get the battery to charge. Once I have it in position it generally stays on charge, but if the cable is...

It could be either one Sarah.

The AC adapter's (Charger) cable, or the DC Power Jack where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop.

This is an example of the DC Power Jack not installed,

(You can click on the three views of the jack to enlarge)

1) Check the DC Power Jack to see if it's in good repair.

Battery removed use a small flat tipped screwdriver, and Gently see if you can move the Center Pin around in the jack.
See if the Center Pin will move side to side a small amount. There is supposed to be No perceptible movement.

Referring back to the closeup photos of the DC Power Jack, the flat blade-like prongs are upside down, in relation to how the jack sits on the motherboard.

The flat prongs go down through the motherboard, and are soldered to the motherboard.
If the center pin of the jack is stationary, but the jack as a unit moves around, one or more solder joints, (Connections) for the flat prongs may be cracked.

The repair consists of completely disassembling the laptop, removing the broken DC Power Jack, and installing a new one.

Acer Aspire One service manual,

(Click on the blue - One - in Aspire One.
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name (One) it may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

(Took 12 seconds just now for full download)

No perceptible movement of the DC Power Jack? Suspect the cable of the AC adapter right near it's plug. (Plug that plugs into the DC Power Jack)

My issue is the following i have a gateway laptop and the charger when plugged in doesnt seem to power the laptop with the battery in or out

Is there a green LED light on the large box part of the charger? If there is, is it lit up green when plugged into the wall? If it isn't, then the charger is bad. If it is lit up green, and it isn't charging your laptop when it is plugged into it, then most likely the DC Jack that you are plugging into is broken. It is most likely the kind of jack that has 3 metal pins/posts that come out of the bottom of it and are soldered to the motherboard. Usually one of the pins gets broken so then there is no connection for electricity to follow into the laptop. It usually can be repaired at a computer store or electronics repair shop for around $200 or less.

Hi, the battery won't charge. We rang and spoke to someone about 2 weeks ago and they said it was probably a faulty battery and they were going to email us and send a new battery, We have heard nothing...

It could be the battery but it is also possible that charger is broken. Try with another charger and if it still doesn't work than the battery is the problem. If both of this things don't work for you than this could mean that jack on the phone is malfunctioning.

My Audiovox 8910 will not turn on evenafter buying anew battery

This is not likely a battery issue but is indicative of a phone that has gotten wet or has been infected with a virus or has other software issues. We work on cellular phones and would be willing to look at your phone to see if the phone numbers and pictures can be retrieved. Call 1-800-297-5550 and speak with Debby, 9 - 5, M - F, EST for shipping info. You can also contact Audiovox in NY to arrange for out-of-warranty repairs but they will not save your data as a part of the repairs.

Dead short on power jack

Should be battery first, Then AC adapter (Charger)

Dead short on DC Power Jack?
Are you aware of how a DC Power Jack is made, (Component structure), and how it attaches to the motherboard?

If not, allow me to explain. This is an example of an average DC Power Jack,

The outside housing of the DC Power Jack, is barely larger than the outside of the AC adapter (Charger) plug.
It's about a 1/4 inch wide, 3/8 inch inch tall, and 1/2 inch long.
The body is made of plastic.

The outside shell opening in the body is the Negative contact.
The pin in the center is the Positive contact.

Those flat metal prongs, or pins, you see in the photo, go down through the motherboard, are are soldered on the bottom side.
The photo of the jack is upside down, in relation to how the jack sits on the motherboard.

When the 'Charger' plug is plugged into the power jack, it can get bumped. A hard enough bump, or repetitious bumps can damage
the center pin mounting, break the outside metal shell loose, and/or break the plastic housing.

It can also break the solder joint/s for those flat metal pins.

AC adapter unplugged from the laptop, battery removed, see if you can take a pencil eraser, and move that middle pin around. You may see the entire jack move.

There is also a large number of laptops, made with a defective motherboard design. To explain, I'll have to give you a crude example.

Think of the laptop motherboard as being a 1 foot square. (It isn't. It's irregular shaped)
Now along the edge of the 1 foot square, attach a 2 inch square.
It's actually all one piece.

Due to accidental bumping of the 'Charger' plug while in the power jack, this 2 inch 'Peninsula' can break away from the main body of the motherboard. (1 foot square)

There are circuit traces on the motherboard. (Think of a circuit trace, as a Very, Flat, Thin, copper wire)
These circuit trace can become stretched by the cracking, or breaking away of the 2 inch 'Peninsula'. They can then be exposed to circuit traces they're not designed to touch. This can cause a direct short.

(Also, due to the bad design of these motherboards, the laptop user can be just using the 'Charger', in an everyday situation, and this 2 inch 'Peninsula' can break.
Just by plugging in, and unplugging)

Audiovox SMT 5600 will not charge

If your battery goes COMPLETELY dead, which it will do if phone is not turned OFF and not used for a long period of time, you will need to JUMP START it using you OEM SMT-5600 AC charger. Other AC chargers will not work for this purpose and neither will a USB port.

You can JUMP START the battery using a USB port by cutting off a USB cable to expost the red and black power USB PORT power pins 1 and 4. Remove your SMT-5600 battery and while the modified USB cable is plugged into your USB PORT, hold the BLACK wire to the negative (-) terminal and the RED wire to the positive (+) terminal for about a minute. Replace the battery in the phone and connect the phone to a USB PORT using a standard USB cable. The SMT-5600 charging light may not register for a while, but will eventually light amber to show it is charging, assuming your phone is recoginzed by your computer.

Note some mini USB cables DONOT carry the USB power leads through to the phone, only data. If you have a very thin USB cable, be suspicious the power leads are not being carried in the cable.

Since the USB PORT power is limited to 100ma it cannot hurt the battery, but will insert enough current into a totally flat batter to cause the battery to register a voltage large enough to alllow USB PORT charging, typically 3.7VDC.
