Question about Compaq Presario CQ60-220US PC Laptop

2 Answers

When I plug in my Compaq Presario CQ60-220US, the adapter light does not come on, nor does the computer charge. I am not sure if it is a problem with the plug adapter on the side of the computer or my batter is bad? HELP!

If the light on the ac adapter does not come on then there is no power going to it or it is bad. Try connecting it to another outlet. If that does not work, take out the battery and connect it to the ac adapter and try to turn it on. If it works then your battery is bad. If it still does not work try a different adapter from Radio Shack or a another electronics outlet. If it still does not work then it's more than likely the dc jack inside the computer. It's not that expensive and you can order it online but you have to take the computer completely apart and do some soldering to replace it. Have fun and let me know. Good luck!

Hello,

the problem shouldn't be from the battery. It should be from he adapter.

Does the laptop power on? If the laptop does not power up, then it means the problem is from the adapter.

Irrespective of the battery, then adapter should power up the laptop.

You can test the adapter with another laptop to be more sure where the problem is coming from.

Take care.

i cannot think of a commercial product designed for this. I believe that you either may need to send it in for repairs, or if the pin inside the female end is bent, try bending it back. BE CAREFUL.

Compaq is plugged in with charging light on and the computer will


Pull the battery out of the laptop. Check the AC adapter to make sure the light is on, then plug the laptop in. Turn it on, if it doesn't boot, gently wiggle the end up and down side to side, while holding down the power button. If it boots, there is a problem with the DC jack, and it will need to be replaced.

Battery won't charge


Hello,
This is true, you will not be able to charge the battery without the correct charger. For mostly all laptops, when the charger is not maintaining a charge, it is time for a new one. However, it does not have to be the manufacturer's adapter, but I recommend purchasing the battery made for the Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook.
NextTag.com has decent deals on these adapters. http://www.nextag.com/ac-adapter-compaq-presario-m2000/search-html

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank You, Raph30

Compaq Presario needed a new battery was installed labtop will not charge up!


When you install a new battery and remove a battery always make sure the laptop is completely shut off and have the power cord removed so that you avoid any possible power surge.

Batteries generally don't last much longer than a year and I have found removing the power cord or battery when it is off to be a good practice.

Before you charge a battery make sure it is run most all the way down. Recharging a battery when it is not run down can give it a memory and you may only be able to charge it up to the point you started charging it.

Anyway, if the computer won't charge a new battery then you could have a bad motherboard. To be sure try another battery.

Compaq Presario 1200 won't charge battery


dear N9YK

you can follow this

If you have a loose connection where you plug in the power on your laptop, or it works intermittently, you could have a bad dc jack. Symptoms
  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection
  • Broken or cracked dc jack
  • Laptop won't charge but worked on battery
  • Power LED and battery LED flicker when the adapter tip is moved
  • Battery won't charge
  • Sparks come out the back of the laptop
Why does this happen?
  • Flaw in manufacturer designs
  • Use of universal or non-original ac adapter
  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the ac adapter
  • Tripping on or pulling the ac adapter cord
or you can check your dc amper in your adaptor

oke



thx
