That can indicate one of three things: the ac adapter has gone bad, the battery has gone bad, or the charger assembly on your motherboard has gone bad. Here's how to determine which is which: If you have a spare ac adapter, test and see if your system is charging with it instead of the one you normally use. If it still flashes red, you've eliminated the AC adapter. Next is the battery. Remove the battery. On one of the sides will be a button with a small gauge- if it shows a none-serial pattern of dots (for instance off on on on or off on off on) you may have a bad battery. If it shows no dots- then it's a tossup- either your battery or the charger board. At that point, if you are in warranty still- contact Dell technical support to get either a tech to your location or your laptop sent to depot for repairs. If it is not, try purchasing another battery first- if it still has problems, then it's the charger board- At that point, you can purchase a replacement board from Dell spare parts, find a reputable laptop repairperson that could do the same, or try Ebay or other sites for the part.

My dell d600 is not charging what is the solution and it always flash red light when it is plug to power

That means either the battery is no longer good anymore or the laptop is unable to charge and/or recognize the battery. Try cleaning the contacts of both the battery and the laptop when everything is unplugged and powered off with alcohol and a q-tip. But usually if a laptop is not charging the battery then most likely you will need a new one

Red battery light flashes when chargin dell latitude

If the battery light flashes red, this is usually an indicator of a bad cell in the battery or the battery is not being charged. This could be a power supply problem, a battery problem or a power adapter problem on the motherboard (The piece mounted to the motherboard that the power cord plugs into). Laptops are becoming notorious for this last problem.

Go to and download the latest bios firmware to update it. If it still does not work then most likely it is already a hardware issue so you need to contact dell support for the hardware issue.

I would say its defective. Bring it back to where you bought it and show them. Bring your laptop charger also so you can show them it in action. Hope this helped.
