Usually the power socket in the laptop develops poor soldering to the motherboard - any decent repair technician should be able to fix it.

Y samsung netpad mod N210 mains power light at the laptop constantly changes from green to orange and is not charging the battery if i remove mains power the laptop go off immediately


Have you checked your Cord, Verify that the cord is good by using a computer like your, make sure the power specs are the same. Or get a cord and try it with your laptop. Perhaps the jack is damaged in your laptop, pulled, yanked, tugged, you get the idea. If so replace the AC jack. Bad Battery? How old, mine lasted 4 years.

Presario laptop issue with power indicator light and detecting powers supply


Sounds like your DC Power Jack is bad or broken. The DC Power Jack is where the power cord plugs into the laptop? Most times it get damaged by too much stress on it such as sitting in bed with the laptop, or putting the laptop in the laptop bag with the power cord still plugged in.

Take an ink pen and put it into where the Power Cord normally plugs into the laptop. If the pin inside the DC Jack is loose or wiggles then the jack is probably bad. Sometimes the jack can be completely burned out and you can smell smoke .

If the internal DC Power Jack is loose, you will have totake the laptop apart to repair it. The DC Power Jack is on themotherboard and most times it is soldered to the motherboard. That meansyou will have to desolder the old one and solder a new one in it's place. Sometimes the dc power jack sits in a slot between the bottom case and palmrestwhich hold it in place and has a cable harness that plugs into the motherboard.

When i swich on my laptop it switches off after a few seconds. the mother board was replaced 2 years ago. can this be the same problem im facing again?


Remove the main battery and power supply, wait a few minutes to get rid of any residual charge. Now plug the power supply back in and power up, If no change! the problem might be the DC jack in the laptop, make sure the power supply is plugged in, now put your thumb around the plug and gently bend it sideways as you do so press the power repeatedly to see it you can power up, if yes! the DC jack needs to be resold-ed or replaced on the motherboard, if no! remove the hard drive, if no! swap out the ram one at a time, if you still do not get results the likely culprit is the motherboard.

Only getting intermittent power supply when AC adaptor plug in,power can be ma to come on by gentle movement of the connector in the laptop socket?


You need to replace the DC Power Jack on the motherboard, of the LAPTOP.

What is the LAPTOP manufacturer name, and Model Number?

Just to give you an idea of what is entailed;

No ac power but plugged in


If you plugged in the ac adapter, and you still get no power and cannot turn it on, the first thing to check is the AC adapter. Get a voltage meter, set it to 200 DC, put the positive on the inside and the ground on the outside. Unless you have a highpower alienware laptop, it should read +/- 20 V, most likely 19.xx. If your AC adapter is good, then the DC jack, what the adapter plugs into, is bad. In this case, the laptop will have to be disassembled, the mother boared removed, the old DC jack de-soldered and taken off, and a new DC jack soldered on. You would really need to take it to a qualified techninician at a shop to di it.

No power at all for my Dell Latitude D505


Sounds Like From Your Description That You Need Your DC Jack Repaired/Replaced..

THe DC Jack Is the Port where Your AC Adapter Plug Plugs into on the laptop.... THis can be proprietary or non proprietary.... But Either way, the Old Faulty Jack Needs To Be Desoldered and Removed, THe Board Cleaned and a New DC Jack Soldered On.. You Will Then Be able To Power On Laptop With AC Charger and Will again Be Able To CHarge The Battery..

I have a CMZ984 coleman portable rechargeable bug zapper.I have lost the manuel and charger for it.It is 4 watts.The company that made it for Coleman has gone out of business.It is about 2 years old.What...


The CMZ984 takes 6 volts DC at about 850 ma or 0.85 Amp. The problem is finding a plug that will attach to the Coleman charging port. Use the Radio Shack universal DC power supply. This is a little unit that comes with an assortment of plugs and has a number of switches on the Radio Shack DC power supply. (1)-Find a plug inside of the Universal DC power supply that fits without forcing, (2)-set the voltage to 6 volts and (3)-the polarity to "+". When the universal power supply is plugged into the bug zapper and the universal DC power supply set at 6 volts, turn on the BUG ZAPPER. If the lights inside turns on when the battery is dead then you probably have all switches set correctly. At yard sales, this UNIVERSAL power supply sells for about $1. It comes with a number of different plugs. Don't forget to write the voltage and polarity on the bottom of the bug zapper for the next time.
