Hi justlai33


Not to worry, it is a normal process when any laptop is started. It first check if it is connected to power and starts charging if connected to power.

As far as battery life status is good and fine, you can continue working on your laptop.

You will get a pop of notification when the battery life about to end, till then you can work with out any tension.

Thank you

Flashing led's on battery pack


Charles,
The battery turns on steadily or blinks to indicate battery charge status.
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the light operates as follows:
  • Solid blue - The battery is charging.
  • Flashing blue - The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
  • Off - The battery is adequately charged, or the computer is turned off.
  • Flashing orange - The battery charge is low.
  • Solid orange - The battery charge is critically low
Thank You,

The battery indicator of my Inspiron 1420 flashes amber and blue indicating that the battery is too hot to charge. Obviously the cooling fan is stuck. can anyone help me where I can buy a replacement...


It is not obvious that the cooling fan is stuck. If the battery flashes amber, amber,amber, amber, blue then repeats, the battery has an internal failure and needs to be replaced.
The cooling fan only cools the CPU and the graphics, not the battery.

Battery light flashes


Flashing Blue/Green indicates charging, Flashing amber means battery overheating

You get a better indication of battery health from Windows and BIOS

Battery light flashes blue once, orange once. Manual says battery overheated and let it cool. Been cooling for 3 1/2 hrs unplugged from anything and still nothing. No power..and blinking blue to orange...


With battery in, boot to the BIOS, check indications under battery health. I'm pretty sure it will indicate battery decline/failure which will mean, replace the battery.

Bettery problem


Hi,


It could be the battery is already degraded. If the battery is more than 2 yrs. old you could check the battery health meter and see if you need to replace it. Hope this helps

The blue & 3 amber light flashing on the battery indicator


The battery has an internal failure. While it may still run the system, the only way to stop the LED indication is to replace the battery.

I've a dell inspiron 1521 battery problem


The battery has an internal failure (Most likely a bad cell) While the battery works, the resolution for the LED indication is to replace the battery. Batteries are a consumable item and generally, batteries have a life of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before replacement is necessary.

1721 Inspiron shows flashing amber, three times, then blue.


The cells in the battery are starting to go bad which is why the light is blinking the way it is.

Once you get a new battery put in there the light will stay blue instead of flashing amber.
