Well first try to use a light abrasive to clean the contacts like a pencil eraser. If this doesn't help yes most laptops have to have a battery to get it to boot up from the wall power.

It may be the power adapter that's bad - have it checked with a Volt meter. If the adapter is bad, then it won't charge the battery. You might not need to replace the battery.

My Samsung RV511 Laptop isn't getting power.


Most likely problem in this instance is a loose dc socket. it is a cheap fix or you can re-solder it yourself, if you have the ability.

Does cq61 laptop works without battery


I would assume that the wire/power supply is more likely to be the problem. Even if the battery is completely shot, most laptops will start if the power cord is plugged into the outlet and the laptop is turned on. You should check on replacing the power supply / power cord. Buy it from a store that takes returns with no questions asked. I've even bought one, tested it in the store, (after asking in advance if I could do so). This is a good idea if you live 40 miles from the place it's purchased.

I have elonex eb500 and have used it about 10 times. battery ran flat. Tried to recharge on laptop. Will not reconginse it nor will it charge or swtich back on. Please help


I had to look up what this was because I have never heard of it before. I'm going to assume it works like a laptop, unseat the battery and plug the device into its wall charger and see if it POSTS (power on self test, a PC laptop turns on and usually flashes its mfg logo while it does this) If it posts you've narrowed down the scope of the problem to the battery pack. Its possible your USB charging isn't actually drawing power I know I had a similar problem charging my Motorola flip phone on my laptops, you had to download some sort of driver from Motorola before it would accept the charge.

97% isn't that bad, it means that your battery is fully charged but not the whole way. That is bound to happen specially when youre using youre battery a lot. It will get a lot more lesser in the future the more you use youre battery.
The standard laptop battery starts losing the ability to hold a charge after 300 recharges or cycles. If you drain your battery almost completely at least once a month and then recharge it, it will last longer & hold a full charge longer.

My cell phone keeps shutting off on its own, and not turning back on, on its own. it is fully charged and i've tried taking the battery out and blowing it off, but it keeps doing this.


Check that the power button isn't stuck partially depressed. If that isn't it, you've got issues inside the phone that are going to require qualified service, or an internally damaged battery.

Satellite l30-101, wont switch on, have replaced the battery and also the power cable but still wont switch on


If you've replaced the battery, AND power cable (I assume you replaced the entire AC Adaptor), then most likely the power board needs to be replaced in the laptop. Most of the time, this is fixed to the motherboad, therefore the motherboard would need to be replaced.
I suggest you having someone who has the experience doing this do it, or take it to a repair shop.... or chuck it and buy a new one =).

You say it isn't charging, but will it run off of AC power? If it isn't getting *ANY* AC power, then it might be the female end of the power jack on the laptop. If it will run on AC, the culprit is likely to be a battery that needs replaced.

Charger plugged in but battery isn't charging. laptop only comes on when plugged.


If you've been using that same laptop battery for a few years then it probably needs to be replaced. Batteries get old and stop working properly after a while. You'll have to go out and buy a new one.
