All fairly modern Apple laptops work fine with 240v power.  It should even say so on the power brick for the unit.  You just need an inexpensive adapter to convert from the 110 style plug to the 240 style plug.

It sounds like what you are looking for is a Step up/Step down converter. I do not know of any laptops that come with a 240v adapter since most things here in the U.S. run on 110v.

Do a search on Google or such for a 240v 100v converter.

Orange battery light comes on and the computer says low battery. Computer does not work even when plugged in to wall outlet. I don't think it is the adapter because blue ring on plug in to the com


Diagonizing and analysing this problem, it's obvious that the orange light means battery low.
Have u ever tried charging the laptop with another charger/adapter?
If no try it because some adapters/chargers don't work with some laptops. Also be careful to use the recommended adapter, some can spoil the laptop's panel.

Can i change the plug socket over from 110v to 240v supply on my HR2470T-1/1


It would not be OSHA approved if in the US in an industrial location.

While not recomended practice, it can be done in the US to run off of 4 wire 240. You are just connecting to one half of the 240 outlet.

If you are in the UK or elsewhere with 240/250 volt mains- do not do this, use a voltage reducing transformer instead..

In the US, the standard is 120 /240 Or put another way- a 240 volt circuit in the home in the US, has 2 120 volt branches that share a common return, the 240 is derived across the 2 "120 sources"- hence your 2 pole breakers on 240 volt branches. If the socket is 3 terminal- which was old code- ground and the return were common at the outlet, it is a matter of just making sure the 240 volt plug terminals the 120 volt drill gets attached to is the ground/return (the one with the nib on it to make it index correctly in the outlet- (should be the wide blade lead or white and one black in the drill goes to either"hot" side of the plug- either one will work, and only one. On a 4 wire outlet, which is new code- the return goes to the white wire of the drill. And the black goes to either one of the hot sides. If drill has conductive case and grounding wire- that should connect to the outlet ground.

Mark on plug which two blades are used, so if you take it somewhere else, you can check (which should be standard operating procedure) with a meter to make sure their outlet is wired correctly.

When I push the power button to power the lap top up the light display that says outlet power changes from green to amber and the laptop will not power up.


try removing the battery and just use plug power only if it boots normally then change the battery and the change the power supply unit as well I would just start with the power supply unit first then see if the battery charges up if not the battery is bad replace it. Now if the computer will not start with the battery removed then you have a power supply issue.
Change and replace it. Hope this helps. Also when computer lap top get hot they will shut down to protect the computer wait and let it cool down then try to restart your computer. If this does work and the lap top restarts normally get a fan cooler that is USB powered and the lap top sits on top of it. Also make sure the fan is running and is not stopped. Clean and dust it out once in awhile. I hope this assists you with your problem. John

When the lap top logs off front light stays on


Do you still have the power cord plugged in? There are indicator light s for Battery operation, power on, hard drive activity. If you just logged off but the laptop is stillpowered on, then there will be a light indicating that. If you powered off the laptop but left it plugged into a wall outlet, then there is a chrging indicator that will stay lit.

Cut battery off


If it is plugged in, and still running from the battery, you likely have a bad adapter or power jack. If you have a multimeter, set it in a range that would display 16v dc voltage, then stick the red inside the plug from the adapter, and touch the black to the outside of the plug, and see if the voltage registers (most IBM laptops use 16 volt adapters).
