BATTERY PROBLEMS? My battery needed to be charged since it had 40% charge left so i shut off the computer. I let it full charge. About an hour and a half later tried turning on the laptop and it would not turn on. I plugged the computer in and it turned on without a problem. It says the computer is running on ac power and it says there's no battery in the computer and the light indicating the battery is charging does not turn on . PLEASE ... help me.. I really need the computer for school any help would be appreciated!

Hi

Latitude D620 battery module has a battery charge tester. First remove the battery or turn the laptop over and press the battery icon and the note the battery LED indication.

If there is no LEDs lite, shut down the laptop, connected the power Adaptor, install the battery and check if the battery charge LED lites up.

If it doesn't double check the power Adaptor. Latitude D620 is rated to use a 90W Adaptor. There is a 60W Adaptor (looks very similar to) but this is for other Latitudes and AMD Vostro systems.

If the Adaptor has the correct rating, then check below for more info;

1) [Very Likely] The battery may be faulty or end-of-life and needs replacing. Check the battery connector on the Latitude and battery itself for any broken or bent pins or bits.

2) [Possible] You have the wrong power Adaptor or the Adaptor is faulty. This however would not explain why the battery is undetected.

Start up the Latitude into System BIOS (F2). Under System > Battery information check the battery and AC Adaptor status

If the Latitude D620 has warranty you may open a warranty claim with Dell Support.

I had this same EXACT problem.
I even bought a new battery and the problem persisted.
I followed these instructions and hit the charger button and it had 4 out of the 5 LEDs lit up, so I knew the battery was fine.

I then took it out and blew any dust out, re inserted it and triple checked to be sure it clicked in properly. NOW IT WORKS. I have been messing around with this thing for almost 6 months... taking it in and out. all I can guess is that maybe some particles were interfering with the connectors, or perhaps it just wasn't fully clicked in right.

So, give it a good clean, and slide the battery in gently until it fully clicks.

Believe me, I feel like an idiot for not getting this to work sooner. I really hope you can use the same solution!

Gps shuts off regularly


From what I've experienced, repeated restarting, and frequent shut downs, can be traced back to a defective power cord, and/or a low battery state. Garmins operate best with a full battery charge, regardless their connection to external power.
If you can get it to connect to your computer, and can see it as a device with removable storage, right clicking on it's icon, and select "properties" to show you the battery-charge state detected.
Mine won't charge when connected to the computer for some reason, and won't boot even if left for a few hours, but if I connect it to a dedicated usb charger, (the kind that plugs into an A/C outlet with a USB port) it will begin to charge. After fully charging it returns to normal operational state. If it still can't charge it may need a new battery...

Samsung galaxys 2 drain battery fast


The power cell should only get warm if you have it powered on all of the time. That is natural. 6 hours is short, and that may be one of two problems, the time of charge is too short, or the battery is dying. HINT! If you replace with a NEW battery; you must set the battery memory for the start. That means, when you first charge it, make certain it gets a long 24 hour charge to full. Use the phone until the device shuts down because the battery was exhausted. Now Do a full long term Charge. That process will set a Memory for the Power Cell and allow you to fully charge and discharge the battery from there on. One more thing...if you use a Charger Device, make certain it is working OK or else the Battery will not charge well.

Coleman rechargable lantern Model 5327A750. Have not used it in a while have left it on charge for over 24 hours. the night light works but the main light does not go on. Replaced the bulb and still...


just read the charging instructions. Charge for 16-18 hours. If stored for more than 6 months recharge for the full 16 hours. Do not leave the lantern on after the battery has stopped, has overdischarging the battery can cause problems in recharging to a full charge. If this does happen, switch lantern to off and recharge for 40 hours.YES 40 hours. Only the LED is the only light to be used while charging. If you hane the other light on hi or low the battery does not charge.

Hope this helps

I have a Dell XPS M1210 laptop for which I have just purchased a new 9-cell compatible battery. It worked great for a couple of hours, but now shuts off immediately when unplugged from the AC power supply....


You might want to try what I did when I had a completely discharged battery for my Dell Laptop. I attached the battery to the computer, make sure the computer is off and plug in the charger for a full twenty four hours (undisturbed). And this really worked. I had no problems with the battery. Good luck.

My kin-1200 ap doesn't charge the battery properly.


The reason for this is that the UPS, is unable to efficiently charge those BIG batteries, you see they generally only charge at a low rate, anyway, of say 10% - 15% capacity, of the-battery-usually-charged. Now with these BIG 40 Amperes by 2, well, there simply isn't enough "Juice" to charge them up... (Oh it might do in a month or so)... from that UPS's Charging Circuit. You will most likely have to rig up some other higher rate charger for those BIG batteries. OR modify the charging circuit IN the UPS. They need to be charged at about 1 Amp or maybe more. See it is simply Charge over Time... 40 amps at 1 Amp will take 40 hours.. 40A at 2A = 20H & so on. If only 1/2 flat 2A over 10hours.

How long should I let my battery recharge?


If you have the PS130 12v Battery, and the one-hour rapid charger from Black and Decker, then, in theory, it should only take an hour to charge the battery (according to them). However, I would leave the battery on charge for at least several hours to guarantee a full charge each time. That battery is a NiCad cell battery, and these typically take longer to reach a full capacity charge. So give it a few hours at least, but it probably wont hurt it if you left the battery on charge even overnight either... But don't let them charge for longer than 18 hours maximum!

Unit will not turn on


Your battery is recharged when connected to your computer. Turn the player off and connect it to your computer via the USB cord. The computer must be turned on. Initial charge should be for 10 hours with subsequent charges 3 to 4 hours for a full charge. A quick charge of 1-1/2 hours will give you a 70 percent charge. A fully charged battery will last up to 15 hours under normal use.

Battery charge


The charging time is different between every product and product. Usually, the standard charging time is 5 hours (full charge). A full charge will give youabout 40 minutes of cordless use.

Battery back up is limited to 1 hour only


Did you do a full cycle charge when you got the Laptop? When you buy the Laptop you have to use the computer on battery till the battery dies and then charge battery for 12 hours and you repeat that another time. Most likely your battery it is damaged. Maybe you call the company and they might replace it for you.
