1. Install and update the system BIOS:

Note: Make sure that both the ac adapter and the battery are attached to the notebook. Follow on-screen instructions on how to flash the BIOS.

2. If Dell QuickSet is installed, press <Fn><F3> to display the QuickSet Battery Meter. The Battery Meter displays status, battery health, charge level, and charge completion time for the battery in your computer. If battery health says that the battery is degraded and needs replacement, then you may need to replace your battery.

Will keeping the ac plug connected kill my battery on Dell latitude d610?


I will suggest you to use laptop after it is full charge by removing the charger . when ever you feel battery is down then you can plug in the charger and keep using it, and when ever you see battery is full then remove the charger.
I'll not suggest you keep plugged in the charger when you are done, this way it can effect your Battery. and yes your battery can die with in a year if you are not follwing the correct way to use it.

Why wont my dell D610 charge i have changed the battery and charger


Hey!

If you are still encountering the problem charging your laptop's battery, it is possible that the port where you connect the adapter or the port for the battery is damaged. It will still receive power but it won't charge.

Best solution is to replace the motherboard. Just make sure you would get the exact same devices on a replacement board.

Hope this helps! :D

Battery has gone dead. When I plug the A/C cord in the light on the charger immediately goes out and won't charge battery.


try connecting ac adapter alone without the laptop, check if ac adapter light will stay green or blue.
try another power outlet using the ac adapter alone without the laptop check if the ac adapter light will stay as green or blue. if all fails replace ac adapter.

if ac adapter stays green or blue try connecting to the laptop without the batt, check if the ac adapter light will stay on, if yes then try connecting ac adapter to laptop with the batt plugin check if the light stays green. if not update the BIOS. if fails replace motherboard.

My Dell latitude d610 charging circuit not working on board


What needs to be done is the jack that your adaptor plugs into has solder points underneath it. All the solder points need to be resoldered to make sure that there are no cracks in the solder that are preventing the jack from charging your battery.

After this is done if the laptop still isn't charging then if you know for sure your using the correct ac adaptor with your laptop then at that point the moterboard would have to be replaced.

Plugged in, not charging inspiron 1521


Hi,
 
This is a known issue with the AC adapter. If you are under warranty Dell would replace the AC adapter which will fix the issue. If not you may need to purchase one. Also do make sure you have the latest BIOS update on the laptop.
 
Latest BIOS

Before updating the BIOS make sure you unplug all the USB devices and restart the computer once, and only then start the BIOS update.
 
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
Thanks,
VJ

My Dell Latitude D610 Battery Stopped Working


The battery light flashing RED/AMber is an indication of a failed battery.

Portable batteries have a life expectancy of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles. (roughly 18 months under normal use) After that, the charge life starts to drop off and eventually it will not hold a charge. Because of this, the battery is considered a consumable item and is only warranted for one year from the manufacturer.

Since all the systems listed in the post are D610's (4 to 5 years old) it is not surprising that the batteries are failing.

Dropped Puck, if you replace the battery and a new battery doesn't charge/run the system, then the charging circuit on the MB is failed.

I have a dell lattitude d610 that it wont turn on at all i already check voltage on the charger it gave me 18 volts and battery is fully charge when i plug it nothing turn on neither lights does this...


Laptops are notorious for having the adapter plug come loose from the motherboard although, most laptops will power off of the battery if this happens (if the battery has a good charge). Some laptops have a DC power board that can burn out. Or in some cases, It can be the power button bar. If you are not comfortable trying to repair it yourself, I suggest taking it to a reputable repair shop but it will probably cost you quite a bit to get it fixed. If you know someone who does this type of repair you might check with them.

The light indicator for the battery is; green-charging, yellow-battery failure, and red-charging system failure. The charging system failure happens when the power management chip fails. The pm chip regulates and controls the power input & usage, allows the machine to switch from AC to battery, and cotrols the charging. This will also cause the problem with the power button not workin or being hard to start. Unfortunately, the motherboard will have to be replaced in order to fix this.
