The DC jack, where you plug the power adapter cable, might be loose or defective, & needs to be either re-soldered or replaced.
In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard taken out. Also, the motherboard needs to be 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.

Male power port is loose hard to chasrge unit


The port is female with a center pin, the male portion is on the charger.
If you damaged this pin and it is loose you will need to replace the plug on the charger. Since these are very similar to some laptop charging ports, having a broken laptop around with same size charging port would be a bonus, or a friend with one too, but they are relatively cheap, I fix broken ones on laptops several times a year and can find a pair of them shipped for under $10 typically.
Sometimes you need to solder them on, sometimes they connect with a dongle, should be easy enough to take apart and peek inside.
Other wise, if that is beyond your expertise, does the charger have a cigarette lighter, you could likely charge it through that port, or with a trickle charger directly on the battery cables on the unit if need be.

Garmin nuvi 2555lm battery want charge


A common problem with these units are loose/broken connections on the rear USB port. There are 5 pins on this port. If the power pins are loose/broken, the unit will not be able to charge the battery. The unit will not turn on because the battery is dead. Even if you plug in the charger, there battery will not charge.

The unit will not charge the battery if it won't turn on.

While you could have a bad battery, the Nuvi 25xx series is not that old and the date code on the battery is probably from 2010 or later.

If you plug in the charger, the green battery status indicator should go away or you should see a lightning bolt appear over the battery status indicator . If you don't see a change to the battery status indicator when you plug in the charger, then this confirms that the rear USB port is broken and not applying a charge to the battery.

Port for car charger broken


the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

My blackberry bold wont charge no light comes on just completely dead could it be a faulty battery


Does the red light come one when you plug it into a charger? if not, and your charger works on other phones, than you probably have a broken usb port. (check if it is loose). You're gonna have to disassemble the phone and repair the USB port : Blackberry Repair Guide.
