A battery normally lasts about 2 years before it goes. Take the battery out and leave the laptop on mains and turn on the lappy.
Make sure the metal connectors on both laptop and battery are clean and then put the battery in. If the computer indicates charging then likely you've just a loose connection somewhere else the battery is dead.
In most modern laptops they have a battery checker in BIOS which will tell you if the battery is gone or not.

What does a orange power light mean


please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.

The battery on my c650 laptop has a charging problem


Your battery may not be securely in the laptop.
You may also need to purchase a new laptop battery.
I would go to ebay or amazon to find a decent priced laptop battery.

Lenovo G550 battery shows fully charged but when you unplug the laptop, the laptop shuts down and will not start up again until power cord is plugged back in.


Shows a clear indication of the battery to be faulty. So in the first place remove the battery and checck the voltage, now keeping the battery off the laptop, plug the adaptor to the mains, Now checck the voltage in the battery terminals which is in the battery compartment. If voltage is present then the battery is bad as it is not charging.
However if there is no voltage then the main board has a fault in the charging section which must be looked into.

Y laptop will only work on mains power. When I put in the battery, laptop shuts down.


This is either a problem with the battery or the motherboard.

If you can find someone with a similar Toshiba you can try their battery in your laptop, if it works then it's obviously a problem with the battery itself and you'll need to order a new one.

If it doesn't work then it's a motherboard problem which can be pretty expensive to fix (hopefully you're still under warranty)

My laptop won't charge when plugged in...I changed the charger but still won't charge


When you say it won't charge, does it charge at all?
1. It indicates that it is charging, but as soon as you unplug the charger the battery quickly or immediately indicates it is dead. If the laptop is off, the LED on the laptop shows it is charging but the battery is always dead,
Or:
2. It is as if you didn't have the charger plugged in. No light on the laptop at all when the charger is plugged in.
Possible solutions:
1. The battery has died and is no longer capable of taking a charge. An alternate explanation if you can't even get the laptop to turn on even though the laptop charge LED is on, is that the internal power supply that converts the incoming and battery voltage to all the voltages required has died.
Or:
2. The power connector inside the laptop is a common failure point. The solder joints break from various minor shocks over time. This is going to become more common with lead-free solder as it is more brittle. Less likely is that the charging circuit inside the laptop has failed.

BATTERY is charged, but will not work without being plugged in


Your battery is old and worn out, even though it indicates as fully charged. The battery capacity is practically zero. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles.

You need to buy a new battery if you wish to use the laptop without connecting to the mains.

Battery is showing its there and at 82% and charging but not charging and laptop crashes when mains fails ?


The laptop's battery might be weak to hold the laptop. The indicator will indicate the battery is ok, but when mains is removed there, it goes off. Try swtch on with only battery and see if it goes on and then off, it is the battery that is bad.
