This sounds like either the power plug/cable is broken of which a new plug will need to be fitted or the power socket inside the laptop is broken or needs resoldering to the PCB (known as a dry joint)

Dropped my new zte n9130 boost mobile phone when it was just about dead . Went to charge it and no light no charge and not turning on?? Is this product a good one?


You may have knocked loose the little "plug" that your charger fits into to charge it. It is soldered onto the board inside and, and if it is no longer attached it won't charge anymore.

See if the plug jiggles a bit if you play with it when a cord is plugged in. If it moves that is a problem and means that you need a repair. Even if it doesn't move, it may just be packed in there tight but is still broken.

Hi. Our Advent Roma 2000 laptop seems to have a problem charging. Thought at first it was the charger so bought a new one, but still the same. The charging light flickers on and off as though there is a...


If you wiggle the connection to the laptop and it feels a bit loose, then the power connection on the laptop itself probably needs re-soldering. This is a common problem with laptops. Unfortunately unless you can do it yourself or know someone you can, then it will cost quite a bit to get fixed outside of warranty.

Intermittent power problem on Dell inspiron 2200


First check the plug on the end of the adapter with a multi-meter, The voltage on the plug should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the mains adapter. Also wriggle the wires on the plug to see if the voltage fluctuates, if so it could be a loose/broken wire on the plug.
When you jiggle the plug in the power socket on the laptop and the charge LED flashes and in the right position it charges, this indicates that the power socket is faulty or there is a dry solder joint on the motherboard where this power socket is attached.
To get at the power socket will require dismantling the laptop completely.
When you remove the screws from the bottom of the laptop, take a note where the screws come from as the vary in length.

The toaster does not heat and it's only 6 mos. old.


1. check outlet where you plug in your toaster with lamp or vacuum.
jiggle plug of lamp or vacuum while plugged in to check for bad outlet.

if lamp or vacuum do not work, check breaker panel/fuse box for tripped breaker/blown fuse.
if breaker/fuse okay, replace outlet.
if lamp or vacuum work okay, go to next step

2. plug toaster back into outlet, jiggle plug, then jiggle cord at plug, then jiggle cord at toaster.
this checks for intermittent power cord.

if cord okay, check that the toaster lever or toast basket are not blocked from going completely down.
might be a bit of bread, muffin, bagel that blocks the basket.

if all okay, you need other solutions.....

Power problem with laptop


The problem may be in the charger now. It could have shorted out. Do you see any lights on the unit when it is plugged in? James

Compaq Presario V2000 touchpad/battery charging problems


I noticed you were talking about over heating issues. Does the mouse issue happen when the computer is on for a period time?

I know with some laptops there is software for the "gadgets" on the mouse pad. If you have software related to it.. try reinstalling.

I am getting mixed thoughts of what you maybe talking about... please explain.

Laptop wont start no lights


Check the power jack inside the laptop that you plug the cord into. Can you jiggle the cord? It's possible the power jack inside the laptop has broken off the motherboard. The reason I suspect that is the fact your wife says it works sideways. It's possible when she is holding it sideways the broken part is sometimes resting on the board just right to make the connection. Unplug the cord and take something small like a q-tip and see if you can move the power jack around inside, or if it's even still there where it should be. The computer would be able to turn on without a battery plugged in as long as you plug it into a wall. If you take the battery out and it still doesn't kick on then you can rule out any problems with the battery. Take a look, if you discover the power jack to be broken like I suspect it may be you're going to have to take it to a repair shop to have a replacement soldered in. You can actually defer some of the cost of this by purchasing the replacement dc jack yourself. You can find them on ebay for very cheap. just type in your brand and model laptop dc power jack and you should fine a ton of them. Then just take it to a computer shop and they should just charge you 1 hour - 2 hours labor depending on the shop. I hope this has explained your question in detail. If I've helped you please don't forget to rate me. Peter
