Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

It goes dark, shuts off constantly. Battery meter isn't showing charging.


Unplug the battery and plug in the AC power plug into the laptop;

Does the laptop start up and stay on?

If yes,

Then put the battery in WHILE IT IS ON; See if it starts charging.

If it does not; You have a bad battery and need to replace it.

If it does start charging here's what happend;

Some laptop batteries if they are fully depleted on charge will not let you power up the laptop EVEN IF the power cable is plugged in. In some cases the PC won't turn on at all.

The reason for this is because the battery must have a certain % of charge in order for you to start the PC even IF the power cable is plugged in.

By removing the battery we eliminated the battery as being a cause for this issue; Once the PC is up and running in windows.. LET THE BATTERY CHARGE! You'll want at least 10% charge minimum for the PC to start up.

If however the battery replaced still doesn't hold a charge it's going to be the AC Adapter power cable that's causing the issue.

Best advice start off with the power cable replacement first; This is the cheapest to fix; Otherwise the battery can cost in excess of $50-$150 or more. But universal AC power adapters can be cheap $70 or less which varies depending on laptop.

Rdrhow to find recharge componets on a215-s4807 motherboard?


POWER SUPPLY & BATTERY PROBLEM
If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Not Charging problem


Your battery is dead. Batteries only have a useful life and have to be replaced. Your power cord is ok because you are allowed to be on the computer with it plugged in. But the power cord cannot charge a dead battery that is beyond it's useful life. Replace the battery.

Battery won't charge


So put the old power cord back on since you say it charged the battery normally. Why did you change it if it was charging the battery? It's quite possible that the new power cord is faulty. Just because it is new does not mean it works.

Remove the battery and plug the new power cord in. Does it boot the laptop up? Are you able to function with the new power cord plugged in. If so, then your battery is more than likely dead and needs to be replaced. The battery only has a useful life and once it is completely bad it will not charge.

Charging my juke with a usb cord


Fully charge the battery to maximize playing time. However, it is not necessary to fully charge or completely discharge the battery each time. You can charge the battery by connecting the jukebox either to the AC power adapter (fastest) or to a USB port on the computer. The battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen indicates the remaining battery charge.
  1. Connect the USB combo cable to the AC power adapter, and then plug the power adapter into an AC power outlet. Or, you can connect the USB combo cable to a USB port on the computer.
  2. Plug the combo cable into the jukebox. Make sure that the top of the plug (the side with the arrows) is facing the same direction as the front of the jukebox.
    View Picture
  3. If you are charging your jukebox from the computer's USB cable, turn your jukebox off. If your jukebox is on, it cannot charge from the computer's USB cable. Note: If you are charging your jukebox from the AC power adapter, you can leave your jukebox on as it charges, but it will take longer to charge.

  4. If the jukebox is on, the power cord icon appears in the upper right corner of the display. The keypad's backlight turns on while the battery charges, and then turns off when the battery is fully charged.
  5. When your jukebox battery is finished charging, pinch the two side buttons on the plug, and then pull the plug out of the jukebox.

PLEASE HELP!! I am going on a business trip tomorrow and ALL of my requisite files are on my Dell Latitude D610 that won't power on. PROBLEM: once I removed it from my docking station at work, it won't...


When you say you "tried turning it on with the battery removed", did you leave it plugged into the wall with the charging adapter at the time? Please clarify that you tried to use it while plugged in without the battery and it would not power up? When you plugged it in without the battery, was the green charging light on? Or did you get no power light at all?

With your battery in, try using a different outlet to plug into. Plug it into another outlet and when the green charging light comes on press and hold your power button on your keyboard and do not release it for 30 to 45 seconds. Tell me if this boots up the pc even if just for a moment?

There are three lights on your keyboard that should come on when the laptop is plugged in and turned on. One is the power light, the other is the battery charging light and the last one is the hard drive indicator that looks like a round cylinder on the picture. Tell me when you plug it into the outlet and the battery charge light is on, does the hard drive light come on and/or flicker when you try to power up the laptop? How many lights come on when you press and hold down the power button with the cord plugged into the wall?

No power will not trun on


Hello

Plug in the printer power cord into electricity to charge the battery.The battery might need charging if the On light flashes green it indicates that the battery is charging.

Switch ON the printer, the battery charging icon (lightning bolt icon) flashes above the battery icon on the printer screen to indicate that the battery is charging.

If the battery is charged and the printer does not turn on with the battery power, unplug the printer power cord, if it is plugged in. Open the battery compartment and remove the battery. Wait for about 10 seconds, and then reinstall the battery.

An empty battery should fully charge in approximately four hours when the printer is not in use. If the battery still does not charge in 4 hours,you should replace it

Good luck

Battery will not charge on a dell d610 when plugged into outlet


I have seen this with faulty batteries.
Try changing the battery.
Also, check in the BIOS that the adapter you are using is recognised and shows a state of charging with the battery in.
