If you think you might have damaged the socket (the place you plug it into the computer) when you removed the piece stuck in i, the the first solution might be true. I'd try something easier first though.

1) make sure the adapter is good by testing it on another laptop.

2) check the end of the charger. If the circular piece surrounding the "prong" in the middle is bent so it doesn't make a complete circle, it might not be getting good contact. Press or pry this back into a circle.

3) make sure your battery can take a charge by either testing it in a friend's iBook. If you plug the charger in and it doesn't turn orange, check the battery indicator in the upper right to make sure it doesn't say something like "unable to charge".

My battery won't charge even if I replaced it with new battery.


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

Dell inspiron M5030 won't charge, green light is


This is a common problem. It may be that the charger is dammaged. these Dell chargers have a micro thin communication cable in them that tell the charger to charge the battery. this micro thin cable can often break. Its use it to prevent the laptop battery from over charging, but if it breaks or becomed broken inside tha charger cable, then the laptop simply won't get the charge signal and the battery won't charge. If this is the case, then you will need to replace the charger with another Dell charger compatible with your laptop

If your laptop is still under warranty, contact dell and they should be able to fix it free of charge, The same thing happened to my laptop a few years ago and fortunately, it is still under warranty, The fault is the charger itself which dell replaced free of charge.

My dsi xl won't charge. I've bought a new charger yet it still won't charge


I have many times repaired small electronics with this problem by checking the solder connections from the power jack to the circuit board.(I am self taught,not an expert)Anything that plugs in to the device can easily break the connections to the board.Electronic manufacturers do this construction technique to save space,but I would rather have the jacks connected to the board with short pieces of wire.(I recently scored a Magellan GPS in the dumpster at work-someone pitched it WITH THE CAR CHARGER because of the same problem)It took me longer to figure out how to get the case open than it did to fix it!

Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

Having problem with phones battery charger, won't charge sometimes, seems to be a problem with the charger port


Sometimes you will have to buy a new charger. If it is the phone, you may have to rig your battery to the charger itself.
