    yes, but If a take the battery out and try to turn it on it will try to boot and shutdown. I can get it to work if i bend the charger cord. My worries is that I dont think that method of making it work will last long.

    oh it does try to charge the battery but quickly switches to battery power.

  • precado999 Apr 13, 2008

    well I have tried it in different locations and the problem is still the same. for example at school, library etc. I have to move the power jack around to be able to make the battery charge. So I think that the problem is the power jack.

  • Ekse Apr 13, 2008

    you said you bought a new charger so its odd that it would be the cause but, check the cables, is there a power cable going to the adapter? is it removeable? it might be a loose connection.

  • Ekse Apr 14, 2008

    its the power jack or then the cable, or the ac converter or the cable that does into the converter from the wall. Give atlasuk2007 a thanks for trying or innapropriate rateing for ansvering someone elses problem.

Battery not charging

Bad battery or charging unit. A volt meter can check the charger although the battery is the problem if old I think

Difficulty charging

Sounds like you have a bad internal dc jack. These go bad after so long. This is a normal problem on all laptops. Make sure it isn't your battery by seeing if you could use another same model battery. If having tried a new charger and a battery and the problem still persists then take it to your neighborhood computer shop or send it to me. I can replace the dc jack for you since you'd have to sodder a new one on.

I bought a charger, one with multiple ends, to fit my Canan ZR200, it will power on, but it doesnt show that the battery is charging, also purchased new battteries

have a look at what the volts and amps are set for, if there to low it wont charge your batterys up as all the power is used up just in running the camcorder

My battery is not charging and i just replaced charger

There is probaly a loose connection from the input for the charger.
but sometimes thats not the problem.
This happenned to me before , and I just called the company that made the laptop, and they said to just buy a new battery instead of going through the trouble of trying to repair it, which would take about 15-$ and 2 weeks. I would just buy a new battery for about 30$.

Palm tungsten e2 will not turn on, replaced batttery,

Plug you E2 into your PC for 8 hours to slow charge. Press reset button on back and later in life your E2 will come on by itself.
