Try this: remove the battery and the power cord for a few seconds. Now connect the laptop to the power and try again.

Laptop compaq will not charge will not turn on. Puting charger on it and pushing the on button i see lights once i release on button light goes out. thinking its charger or its where i plug in charger on...


Try this quick fix, if there are no issues with your charger and/or battery, this might work...
- remove battery
- make sure charger is not connected
- long press the power button for about 1 minute
- release then connect charger or power adapter, without the battery
- press power button to turn on the laptop

If this did not help, try using other power adapter.

Power button not working!!! This is different though....


This is a common problem that I run into. The battery will show charged when it really isn't. Take out the battery, plug the charger into the computer and try turning it on. If this works, you have a bad battery and it will need to be conditioned or replaced. If this doesn't work it could be a serious hardware issue.

When i charge my acer aspire the power button flashes


The DC jack in the laptop is showing early signs of intermittent issues, the jack is solded to the motherboard which sometimes breaks free over time, this is something that will eventually need to be addressed.

THE SWITCH ON IS NOT WORKING CAN YOU HELP ME TO FIX IT


The Switch ON? Are you talking about the Power Button? If so it could be that your Power Cord is bad. Some models of the Power Cord has a light on it and some laptops light up somewhere when the power cord is plugged in and working.

You might have been working off your battery and if the power cord is bad it was not charging the battery and now nothing will work because the battery is completely drained.

If the power cord is good, you might have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the power cord and the battery, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in (not the battery, leave it out) and press the power button. If it starts booting you had a Static Charge Buildup and can put the battery back in now.

If all fails, take an ink pen and stick it inside where the power cord goes. If it is not tight then the DC Power Jack is bad and need to be repaired. This will require a complete disassembly of your laptop.

I have a Dell XPS M1710. PC will not boot, no green light only yellow. Received error code that PC did not recognize poweer source. Bought new power source. PC will not boot, no green light only yellow and...


HI there!

A amber light power button means that the
distribution of the power is not working properly,

And as you have said the battery won't charge anymore,

Usually what fixes that problem of yours is a BIOS
update but from what i see you cannot fix it with a BIOS update anymore.

And on what they said yes your gonna need to replace motherboard because it's not detecting the charger anymore if you can still access BIOS setup go to battery info you will see that the ac adapter is unknow.

So for the fix of your problem there you'll need to get a motherboard for your computer.

Hope this helps!

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start. The battery light would flash orange 4 times then blue once, and then start over with the same sequence. Pulled the power board and fixed the solder joints on...


This is directly from the User Manual:
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows:
• Solid green: The battery is charging.
• Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
• Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).
• Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.
• Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.

My iRobot scooba won't turn on after a full charge


Do you have the charger terminal, or do you have the charger that you have to take out the battery and charge. Because I have found that my base terminal charger works better than the battery charger that needs the battery to be removed to charge.If you have the terminal charger and the power light is green when it is in the charger I would start from the terminal

My charge light constantly flashes orange and my C600 won't turn on at all. I hold the power button and all the lights turn off. I got nothing. Just a blankscreen.


When you say charge light, was that the battery led light that you were referring to or the power button?

If it is the battery led light, try this:
Try to power on your laptop without the battery in your laptop.
take out the battery and just use the ac adapter, if it works fine then there could be a problem with your battery.

If is the power button that is flashing orange, then try to power cycle laptop.
turn off laptop.
take out the battery and the ac adapter.
then while those are out, you hold down power button for atleast 10-15 seconds.
put back the power source and check the led again.

Power problems Inspirion 8600-battery not charging


Most Dell batteries have an LED indicator that allows users to see how much run time and how much overall battery life are available at the touch of a button.
To check battery charge, press the button and the number of lights that appear will tell you charge status. If all lights appear, you have a fully charged battery. Each light that appears accounts for approximately 20% charge.
To check the battery health, press and hold the status button on the battery charge gauge for at least 3 seconds. If no lights appear, the battery is in good condition and approximately more than 80 percent of its original charge capacity remains. Each light represents incremental degradation. If five lights appear, approximately less than 60 percent of the charge capacity remains, and you should consider replacing the battery
if the ac adapter will power the laptop without the battery installed its fine. if the cord is fine and your battery is fine its a mother board issue and it will most likely have to be replaced
