1. You may possibly have a faulty power supply adapter. Contact the manufacturer and see if there are any call backs on the power adapter for you laptop unit
2. you may also have a damaged connector at the laptop connection. This will require repair by a technician.

Nc6000 multibay battery does not recharge


Perhaps remove the multi-bay battery, and let main battery charge all the way. Then reattach multi-bay battery, and see if it's recognized.
(Will charge)

That is AC adapter (Charger) removed, then remove multi-bay battery.
Plug AC adapter back into laptop, THEN plug AC adapter into power.

[You do Not want to unplug an AC adapter from a laptop, with the AC adapter plugged into power. Could be a power surge/voltage spike. Unplug AC adapter from power, when plugging into laptop, or unplugging from laptop ]

Main battery charged, unplug power to AC adapter, unplug AC adapter from laptop. Plug multi-bay battery in, then AC adapter.
(Then plug AC adapter into power)

My Orbit 57899 is saying no ac but the outlet to where this goes is working fine


I believe that you plug a transformer into the outlet. If this transformer is not working, no power goes to the timer. Remove the battery and if the timer display goes out (and it may take some time, possibly hours) the transformer is in need of replacement. They are available at sprinkler suppliers and maybe even a local hardware.

Hi al85009,

Have you tried draining the power of your computer? Often performing power drain resolves any display issue. Please follow the steps below for the basic instructions on how to perform a power drain.

2. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet.

3. Remove the battery from the system.

4. Now, press and hold down the power button for 15-20 seconds.

5. Plug in the AC adapter to the power outlet and put back the battery inside the computer. Try turning on the system.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My battery died, I plugged in the charger and the battery light flashes and then shuts off


Your battery might be completely drained. Remove your battery and and plug your laptop directly to the power outlet using just your laptop's AC Adaptor. If should now work with the battery being bypassed.

If it won't work in this way (connecting to AC Power with the battery removed), there must be something wrong with your laptop's board.

The battery is drain.

DO NOT use the USB cable to charge your Blackberry.

When the PC/Laptop/Mac go to power saving/SLEEP mode it will cut off the charge to the Blackberry.

Use the official AC charger to charge the Blackberry.

Make sure the AC power is not switch off to the power pack at night.

Flickering screen - Acer (laptop) 1690 series


You have two problems and they are separate issues.
First your battery is nearly worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and as the battery ages the charge capacity will drop. When the battery is worn out, it may not charge at all or show it is 100% charged but when you remove the AC power the laptop will shut off because the battery is dead. A new battery is required to fix this problem.

Second when you connect the AC adapter into the laptop's power socket, and the screen flickers and the charge LED also flicks, it means the power socket is faulty or the power socket has a dry solder joint connection to the motherboard. If you hold the power plug in a particular position you should notice the charge LED will stay on without flickering as well as the LCD screen.
This fault can be repaired, but it requires the laptop to be dismantled completely to access the power socket. I suggest you get a quote first.

My Compaq Pres V2000 laptop does not get on with power on switch


Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter to see if the laptop turns on. If it does then you know the battery is shorting out the laptop and either has very little power to turn on the laptop or is shorting out the laptop cause its bad.

If you don't get the laptop to turn on, make sure your using a well known working wall outlet to plug the laptop to and only use the AC Adapter. If you AC Adapter is hooked up and the Green Led turns on then you know the adapter is good.

After those two steps, you can also try taking out the dvd drive and the hard drive. Then try turning on the laptop and if the laptop still doesn't turn on then the motherboard is bad in the laptop.

I HAVE A LAPTOP ACER AND THE POWER DOES NOT TURN ON


It could be a battery problem. Try switching to AC mode by plugging in to an AC outlet using your Acer power chord (battery charger also). If the charger led don't light, it means it's defective and it can't charge your battery. Please try another power chord or battery charger then. Just remember to take out your battery when using your laptop in AC mode to lengthen your battery life. Regards!
