Make sure that you are using the correct AC Adapter. Dell usually supplies two different ones. They look very much the same. The difference is the amps. One is meant to be used in their port replicator. Look in the BIOS and make sure you have the setting correct for charging the unit.

Got a dell latitude d520 charges battery ok will not power up with mains plugged in only works on battery power any ideas


Hi there!

Your laptop is working with just the battery but not with the main power. This issue you have here is usually caused by a motherboard problem but have you tried to remove the battery then try to turn on computer? If it works then you might just need a BIOS update for the computer of not then there's a high chance that the motherboard your using is having a problem using the main source.

Hope this helps!

Lattitude d520 I buy a new ac adapter, and the battery dont charge. I put the battery in other lattitud and it charge. I think my Lattitud d520 is not charging. What may be the problem?


If the battery and AC adapter work fine on a different D520 then you have an issue with the charging circuit on the motherboard. Could also be the DC adapter jack soldered to the motherboard.

I have a Dell D520 and it currently says plugged in not charging 0% available. I bought a new battery thinking that this was the problem about a week ago. However it again says the same thing. As long as I...


It would that you have a low powered AC adapter. The wattage output of the adapter will cause the problem you are having. Try shutting the laptop down, not suspend, and letting it charge over night. This should charge the battery. I have found that an underpowered adapter will not power both the laptop and charge the battery. You may want to check in the battery compartment for the adapter part number and see if you are using the correct one for your laptop. Please let me know how it goes.

I have a dell lattitude d520 that won't power up, I have tried different charges, and I try removing the battery.


The most-likely cause is a "dead" motherboard.
Or, it could be that the circuits that recharge the battery have failed,
so that the battery has no charge left.

Take the computer to a professional technician.

Dell D520 wont power up


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa!

I've worked with Dell tech support for a year and whenever we get this kind of problem ( No power when AC adapter is connected ) the culprit is usually loose power terminal or bad battery. If you have a spare battery and it still doesn't charge or turn ON with that. Then you've already isolated the problem. You have a loose power terminal. If your laptop is still under warranty, you'd better contact dell right away. They will give you free troubleshooting and service for that problem. If your laptop is out of warranty. You might want to just bring it to a local shop and have the power terminals re-soldered.

Have a nice day.

Dell D620 not running on AC power


I'm afraid that Power Controller IC is went bad/fried.
It didn't sense correct DC voltage from adapter and were giving you those messages.
Best case scenario is Cold Solder and resoldering of IC will help.

Dell D610 Batteries don't charge when AC adater is plugged


this is usually a sign of a common problem with these laptops. Usually the power works but it will not power the batteries to charge them. If the power adapter is fine- you have a bad motherboard.

Can't charge battery or run off AC


You may have a problem in the DC charge circuitry. These parts are located on the moatherboard directly and can't be bought separately and repaired. You must send your Dell to a specialised service to have it fixed by them. Sorry, I can't see no other way for this problem to be solved.
