Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? Ifnot then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

The laptop charger just stopped working is a solution to repair it


Mr. Mabelann i suggest you a new charger to buy if your charger is burned due to electricity. Me and my friends have a experience to repair a charger of our laptops but after some time it create disturbance like touch pad does not work properly. Mouse cursor is not working properly and often a problem of up and down.
I also recommend you to see your charger carefully with other wire plugs.

My compaq cq40 laptop charger is not working


Before you make a decision about the next step, maybe you would like to know why the laptop charger is not working. Here are some commonly found reasons for this problem.
  • You have been using the wrong laptop charger for your machine, or someone else has been using your laptop charger for another machine. This may seem like a harmless act, but it affects the battery on your laptop, and charger you are using as well.
  • Your laptop battery has become weak and worn out from excessive use. Due to this the battery is not charging at all (or charging very slowly) when you plug in the charger. In this case there is absolutely nothing wrong with the charger itself.
  • The wire of the laptop charger has got a distinct curve at one point, and this is restricting it from transmitting power. You need to look out for such bends in the wire, as this will ruin the efficiency of the charger in no time.
  • This may sound elemental and stupid to some, but it does happen to many people. Maybe you are simply using the wrong laptop charger by mistake, or maybe you have failed to switch on the power switch. Check both these things to be sure.
Any of these potential causes could be the reason behind your laptop charger not working. As a result of these, either the mains power lead of your charger may be damaged, or the power supply unit may be damaged, or maybe the lead itself is damaged or broken somewhere, or some circuitry inside the laptop is damaged, and not responding to the charger. It's hard to accurately tell which of these problems could be the real cause of your laptop battery not charging, without physically examining the machine.

Solutions and Answers

Now if you are well versed in computer hardware you can attempt to fix this yourself. Most people cannot do this, and it is advisable for them to visit a computer repair shop instead.

  • Buy a brand new charger which will definitely solve your problem of charging the laptop for a long time.

  • Get your's repaired and pay the repair shop the fees that they charge.
  • If your warranty is still valid, you can simply get the laptop charger replaced.

The laptop wont charge


Just because the light comes on does not mean the charger is charging. You will have to use a meter and check the actual output of the charger. The problem could be the charger , charger plug, cables or battery. Start the checks with the plugs and cables and go from there. The light can come on but no power going out to the battery.

How do I reset s9....the green light stays on constantly and I cannot connect at all.


If you guys haven't found a solution, you might want to try this out. Have your S9 charger hooked up to the unit and plug the charger into a surge protector. Flick the main switch of the surge protector on and off a few times and it should turn off the unit. Then turn on and pair if need to and it should be fine. Hope that works for ya!
