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.

When i plug in my toshibba satellite a205, the plug light turns on, but the batery charge lights flashes just once, then goes off. my battery says 2%, not charging. is it a battery or combination laptop...


True turning it on while pluged in but without the battery in. If it works its your battery if not it is you charger or laptop, my bet is on the charger they have a tendancy to go out.

Acer aspire one battery light flashes orange. When booting after a few seconds it shutsdown. Now all lights stay off. Can this acer netbook work without batery ? It doesn't seem to charge the batery


Finally I got it working again, after a lot of try's (just put the plug in for a few hours) the led was red again for a brief moment, then it starting to flash orange again.
I looked it up on a lot of forums, the problem is that the (old) bios doesn't charge the batery anymore when it is deeply discharged.
So I put the plug in and out for about 10-15 times , and the brief moment it is not flashing it's still charging. Until it is not deeply discharged anymore and then it is charging the batery like it did before.

But I still don't understand why it is not working without the batery inserted ??

Batery hang problem


batteries have a charge memory in the, when you purchase a new battery the best thing to do is to fully drain the battery before charging it up, this will tell the battery that it needs full charge, if you charge the battery before this it will only charge the battery to a certain percentage.
what you need to do now is find a way to fully discharge the batteries

kind regards

Batery problem


I would call the manufacturer. Depending on your battery and what you do on it, that may be all of the time you get out of your battery. I have a small laptop and even on a full charge, I can only get like 2-3 hours of use.

Samsung V25 Laptop When it is powered up nothing is showing on the screen although the power light is on and you can hear a noise. This has happened before and it just came on.


One way to make sure the system is still working, remove the Batery, then plug the power adapter only and turn the computer back on, normally if the laptop goes into Hybernation mode and the battery is low on power this can happen. If that fixes the system then you can do a safe shutdown and re-install the battery and turn your laptop on and it should come on, the fact that you mentioned this has happened before makes me believe it is Hybernation issue. Good Luck.
