SOURCE: dell inspiron 1525 will not charge the battery


The problem is as JCHUNTER identified. On my Inspiron 1525 I got the same dreaded message "plugged in...not charging." What I found is this: The problem is NOT the charger. the problem is NOT the motherboard (at least it wasn't) on mi laptop. The problem is the jack on the laptop that the charger plugs into. There are 3 metal contact parts on the charger jack that mates with three essential contacts in the charger input jack on the laptop. If you look at the charger tip you will notice (1) the outside metal piece, (2) the inside of that same outside metal piece, and, (3) (the metal tip inside that looks like a piece of bare silver wire (forgive me, I do not have the technical terms). If you look inside the power input jact on the laptop (does not require any opening of the laptop) you will see a rounded black piece in the center of the input. This iw where the problems lies. There are four metal contact points on that inside piece that must be in contact with the inside metal on the charger (#2 above). Over time, these four metal contacts gets pushed inside the rounded black center piece on the input jact so that they fail to maintain constant contact with the corresponding area of the charger, so you get the dreaded message.
Here are possible fixes:
1. replace the sub-board on which the power input jack & USB jacks are located (I do not know if all inspirons have this sub-board but mine did). To me it was not that difficult to open the computer and take that part out. P.S., I did not even have to remove the motherboard. OR
2. Replace just the power input jack (if you are good with soldering micro circuitry. Do so at your own risk. OR
3. This is what I did, and it worked like a charm. Find a way to pull out the four metal contacts on the inner black piece of the input jack of the laptop. This requires a little ingenuity and some patience. I took a straight pin and using a pliers bent the point so that it formed an "L' shape (the bent piece should be short enough so that you can fit it inside the powe jack and maneuver it around). Hook the bent end of the pin under each of the four contact pieces and gently pry them outward. It is my belief that as long as at least one pin gets contact with the charger that it should work.

(Some people suggested banging the laptop or wiggling the charger tip and some strange other tactis, which appear to work for some people. I have tried them and found that some work intermittently at best. They will work only as long as there is contact of the two parts I mentioned above).

To arrive at my solution, I opened up my Inspiron 1525. I put a multitester on the power input jact and realized that there was no problem with the sub-board or its connection to the mainboard. I tested the charger and that was fine also. Next I checked the power input jack and the contact points I identified as 1 and 3 above had good contact. It was difficult to check no 2. For this, I used a piece of tin foil placed inside the charger tip before inserting the charger tip into the power input jact on the laptop - and WOW, IT WORKED - NO MORE MESSAGE. I unplugged and removed the foil and.. you guessed it... the message was back. So, I knew that this had to be the problem. Since I used method 3 above, my laptop has been working like a charm, even after multiple times reinserting the charger into the power input jack on the laptop.

This is only my experience. I am no expert. I am just some one who uses self to save tons of cash.

SOURCE: battery of laptop not charging

If the laptop works when plugged in, the power supply is OK. The battery controller is probably the problem, which would mean replacing the battery.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 the battery light was blinking orange and wouldnt come on so listening to an expert i bought a new battery when you first plug it in should the light still be orange??

Hi. Blinking orange light on battery indicator means it's charging. To make sure, point your mouse to the battery icon on the Taskbar located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen...near the system time and speaker icons. It should say plugged in, charging. If you see "plugged in, not charging, then you need to call Dell Phone Support for additional help.
