    Dell Laptop (Inspiron E1505).Contacts cleaned, but NO lights on battery. Is there a manual that shows how to open it without destroying anything?

    Is this a laptop? Yes? Have you cleaned the contacts off with a pencil eraser? Are the charging lights blinking, but the laptop won't run on the battery?

Beachfellow,

Don't try to open the battery. If you are still under warranty seek support from Dell. Opening up your Laptop will kill any warranty your have.

If you have a bad charging circuit you should seek out an authorized Dell repair shop for the work.

If you are a qualified Electronics Technician and can troubleshoot digital circuit and realize what you will be doing to the potential of your machine to ever charge a battery again, then be aware of the challenge and the pitfalls. Only then, give it a go, and I wouldn't suggest anything higher than a 10watt soldering iron and use every static precaution in the book including groiunding youir soldering iron if it isn't a three prong plug as many are not.

Regards,
Worldvet

Dell latitude e6410 chargin fault ,will run on dc adapter but shows not chargin ,battery not conected


  1. If the motherboard has ever been replaced, check the service tag section of the BIOS. If it is blank, enter the service tag off the bottom of the system. (The charging circuit will not work without it.)
  2. Also in the BIOS see if the AC adapter is identified or is listed as UNKNOWN. If the system cannot ID the adapter as a Dell Branded AC adapter 90w or larger, then the charger is again disabled. If unknown, check the barrel end of the DC jack of the adapter for the fine wire in the center, if broken or bent, then the adapter is not identified.
  3. Try with a different Dell branded 90w or larger D or E series adapter.
if all the above make no difference, and the Adapter is recognized, the battery may be at fault.
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3743571-long_will_battery_in_portable_computer
if the adapter is unknown, replace the adapter, unless it works normally on another system, and the other system's adapter has the same issue, in that case the motherboard is likely the issue.
Note: a 65w Auto/Air adapter will only charge the battery if the system is OFF

Dell PC losing battery very fast


hi

turn off the computer , then remove the battery . reboot system and try rebooting the notebook with the AC adapter only.
this is to ensure the Ac adapter is working fine, and if it is, it should be charging the battery properly when its installed.

now, turn off the system again. re install the battery and try booting it up with the battery only

if the battery hasn't enough charge, then attach the AC adapter. If you have allowed the computer to charge the battery (while the computer is powered off) and it is not charging the battery, then you need to replace the battery definitely.

you can get a new battery (if you are in North America) from www.compluscominc.com

My Acer aspire 4935 is not recognizing the AC adapter. When ever I shutdown the system and connects the AC adapter, it works and the charging LED lights up. Once I press the power button to boot the...


Problem description:The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause:1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.
http://www.chargerbuy.com/replacement-acer-aspire-9400-ac-adapter-19v-3-42a.html

2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.

3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.

4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

Hp compaq nx7400 - battery died and power cord will not turn comp


Some laptops will not power up with a completely discharged or faulty battery. Remove the battery from the laptop, plug in the power cord and try to boot the system. If the system boots, your battery needs to be replaced. Replace your battery as soon as you can, it's not a good idea to run the laptop for extended periods with an open battery bay.

Charging problems


Hopefully the battery is just confused and needs to be reset. Drain the battery down until the system shuts off automatically, then take the battery out of the laptop for two minutes and plug it back in, and connect the AC adapter, let it charge without turning the laptop on, then turn it on and hopefully it should work fine again. If not then you may need to buy another battery. Try again with another AC adapter just in case because you don't want to replace your battery (expensive!)

Please rate, thanks!

You may have to use the battery and the ac adapter at the same time. it could be that your battery is not yet charged that's why its not working.

if you want to know if there's something wrong with one of the components of your system..you can try this...

turn your computer on with just the ac adapter plugged in - if working then try both ac adapter and battery.

if your system will not turn on with just the ac adapter plugged in, it could be there's something wrong with the ac adapter or with the motherboard of the system
