Re: Laptop was working fine, but doesn't turn on...
You might have a Loose DC Power Jack.. Or.. if you're using the same AC Power cord for both laptops that you tested, you apparently have a break(short) in the Power charging cord which is quite common...
To Test the cord..take the battery out and try to boot with just the AC power cord plugged in, If it does'nt power up, try turning and slightly twisting the plug into the port.. LOOK to see if the power light is on or flickers...
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

you may have had a surge on your charger, i'd unplug it and try a different outlet. After you unplug it, remove the battery for about a minute, then when at the new location plug the battery back in and then the charger. see if that works. if it doesn't it's possible that your charger just died. Did you happen to look and see how much battery you had available when it died?
I would say your battery is fine. What happened is the computer was running off the battery even though it recognized it was plugged in. There is a piece in the power jack that tells the laptop that you are plugged in, but it doesn't necessarily mean the adapter is working. I would have the adapter checked to be sure it's working before I suspected the battery.
make sure the battery is unplugged from the laptop and only hook up the ac adapter. If you can't get it to turn on then try anotherr knowng good working adapter and if it still can't turn on then the motherboard is bad and will need to be replaced.
You may have more than a dead battery problem, but possibly a problem with the ac adapter or the internal psu. Does this only happen with you try to use the laptop with the battery removed? or does it fail to turn on with or without the battery snapped in?
Hi. Forgive me for asking, but did you try unplugging everything, including the firewire, and plugging it in again?
If you try this and it doesn't work, try shutting your laptop down gracefully, then unplug all the Firebox connectors including the electricity. Wait about 10 seconds, then reboot your laptop. Don't open your recording software yet.
Connect the electricity and the firewire as described in the Firebox manual, and then open your recording software. If this doesn't work, something might be wrong with the Firebox.
The problem you have happens once in a while with mine--it seems to be connected with overheating or something. Anyone else have this problem?
Hi, Remove the adapter and the battery from the laptop.
Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the
battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER
Now connect only the adapter and try to turn it on.
If it starts up, there is no problem with the adapter or the laptop.
If it doesn't, it can be either the adapter or the laptop.
You will have to check it with a different adapter to confirm which one is faulty.
The second case is that the computer powers on only with the adapter.
Then you can put the battery back in and try powering it up.
If it doesn't work, try connecting the adapter too.
If still it doesn't work, its a faulty battery.
Sometimes after doing a power drain, the computer will work fine.
If you have any more issues, feel free to contact me.
