First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

Roland r8 has flashing green light


Are you using the correct AC adapter? An aftermarket unit will do this if the power is insufficient, or the polarity is wrong (- / +). If you're using an aftermarket unit, it may not be providing the right amount of Amps and Voltage to the unit; causing the display to blink. You can try this cord to help: http://www.powerpayless.com/ac-power-adapter-for-roland-r-8-r8-drum-machine.html

Suddenly won't turn on no charge light indicator


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then -The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty.Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging 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 lightstays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder jointwhere it is connected to the motherboard.This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Lexmark x4650 hi, I have plugged a in the printer, nothing happening at all , no indicator lights, it has suddenly died , last used it a couple of weeks ago , any suggestions ? thanks


Verify that the power cable is firmly connected into the printer. Plug the printer in to a different outlet, one that you have confirmed works (plug in a lamp to verify that the outlet works). You may plug in the printer without the computer connection to test this. Check to see if the printer has an additional power switch on the back near where the cable attaches. If the problem persists, verify that the voltage is correct with a multimeter. The output voltage should correspond to the DC Output value written on the adapter. Confirm that this voltage matches the DC voltage required by the printer as written on the underside model placard on the printer. If the voltage is incorrect and the adapter is the correct one for the printer, replace the power adapter. If the voltage is correct then there is a problem with the printer that requires repair service. You may want to consider a new printer if this one is not covered by your warranty.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

When you plug in the adapter into the laptop a LED lights up to indicate that it is connected to the mains supply and is charging.
A faulty adapter or the connector is not making proper electrical contact, this causes the LED not to illuminate. Wriggle the connector plug to see if the charge light comes on, if it does then the loose connector needs repairing.

Check the adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage reading should be a slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter. If the voltage is more than 10% below the nominated voltage then replace the adapter it is faulty.

E Book 500GB drive does not get power


It sounds like the adapter more than the e-book.
If the adapter plugs into the e-book, remove it and buy another one with the same voltage and correct power orientation. The best way to do this is to take the old adapter with you to any shop that sells electrical equipment - even K-mart has them.
If it's one of the fixed adapters, it's best just to take it to a sparky and have them change the adapter for you, it's a 2 minute job.

Toshiba m35-s456 no power


To test if the adapter is faulty check it with a multimeter.
Test the output voltage on the connector that plugs into the laptop. The voltage should be 19 volts (the voltage is printed on the label on the adapter) or slightly higher because the is no electrical load on the adapter.
If there is no voltage or if the voltage fluctuates when you flex the power connector, then the adapter is faulty.

If the adapter is OK, then plug it into the laptop and the jiggle the connector a observe the charging LED light and if it flickers the fault is the power connector on the laptop. This can be repaired, it needs to be resoldered or replaced.

R40 2724-BU1 Power Problem


Check the ac adapter. It seems your adapter is not charging it. Either the ac adapter or your dc port may be the problem. Is this the correct adapter, is it giving the correct voltage. These should be considered also.

 

Hope this helps you
