First, 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.

Laptop won't charge. Replaced battery and charger and still does not work.


Please check the connector / port where u plug-in the charger. Does it happen with all other compatible chargers or only with the one you have. Also try charging some other compatible laptop with the same charger. If that works, it means there is some problem with the port. Its not making the connections well.

I Have Misplaced My Charger And I Am Wondering If There Is Any Other Way To Charge It Like Maybe In The Computer?


Yes, you can charge the battery by connecting the camera to a powered USB port. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge batteries, and you want to connect it directly, not through a hub. Alternatively you can use a USB charger that plugs into a wall outlet; such devices are available for cell phones.

I tried this but I think my charger might have widened the charger port. Is this a possibilty?


i dont think think that is very possible because the charger has been designed to be smaller than the charging port so as to enable it fit in. the only way this is possible is if you forcefully tried another charger or object which may have been probably bigger than the charging port.

Not plugged in for two days, no response to pwr button or reset?


you can not charge a magellan 4000 with a USB connection. you either need the car charger or home charger.

this model is also prone to have power port issues that will prevent it from charging or turning on at all...

if you think you might have other issues if you cant seem to charge it, id be more then happy to help you.

The charger slot on the phone does not work when plugged in, think it needs a new port


Hello,

Why don't you use the charger to charge a similar phone or use a similar charger aside yours to charge your phone to see if it is the charger or the charging port.

If your charger charges a similar phone as yours, it means the charging port of your phone is bad.

But if it does not, the charger is the problem.

If it is the charging port, all you need to do is to replace the charging port and your phone will charge.

Take care.

I have just purchased a sendai universal home charger, when I plug it is my Garmin 200, and the other end into the electrical socket I get a picture on the screen, looks like a computer with a plug running...


The nuvi thinks you've connected it to the USB port of your home computer. It's charging, so pay no attention to the screen.

If you HAD connected it to the USB port, you would also see the nuvi as a storage device attached to your computer. That's how you can download pictures that you can display on your nuvi. It's also the mechanism used when you update your maps and/or software.

Sounds like your battery is shot, bad or discharged or shorted batteries will shut the charging circuit off.

My daughter's LG EnV charging port


You can get a charger at factorydirectcellular.com. The link is
http://www.factorydirectcellular.com/home/universal/universal-battery-only-charger.htm

The charger charges the battery independent of the phone. It is the only one I have found and it works GREAT. I had a couple issues at first but the rep, Matt, bent over backwards to resolve them. I would recommend this charger and company to anybody. The charger is a universal charger and will charge other cell phone batteries as well. The only con is that it does take a little longer to charge than using the port.
