It is the charging circuit on the motherboard that is the problem, a closer inspection of the motherboard is recommended.

    I would strongly recommend a professional with an estimate, requires a complete dis-assembly of the laptop.

  • jim6050 Jan 24, 2011

    Yes, you have to pretty much dis-assemble the laptop but the power jack is on a separate board plugged into the motherboard. Not a very difficult task just takes time and patience. I have purchased many of these laptops with this problem and it's an easy fix. You can get the powerboard for less then 35 bucks.

Unfortunately this is a known problem with the Inspiron 1500 series motherboard. DELL has not take proper responsibility for this defect and only addresses laptops that are still under warranty. The problem starts from the recharging circuity on the motherboard and has the "kiss of death" syndrome. You can replace the charger and battery and it will survive for a week and need to be replaced again. Unfortunately, the only solutions are to get DELL to replace the motherboard if it is still under warranty or cut your losses, dump the Inspiron, and get a new laptop.

Nikon s6300 won't turn on


Coolpix Cameras are tricky to use with chargers. I will assume your USB Charger EH-69P is 100 - 240V 50/60 Hz so it CAN work in many places around the world with an adapter. Do not go over 240V or you could damage it.

These cameras like to have the power supply connected when it is on to charge - meaning if you have it connected and you plug the charger in the wall it will NOT charge. So if you plug the charger in the wall first and then plug the cable in the camera it will work. The camera is actually ON when it charges and I never REMOVE the memory card when it is ON.

When you have a dead battery. Plug the camera in and make sure the ON LED lights and the Charge LED flashes. Then don't mess with it. Let it charge completely (Charge LED stops flashing and is OFF) and then unplug it. It will turn off. Then later you can turn it on.

Will a laptop battery become damaged if you use the computer while it is plugged in? I do a lot of photo editing, and leave the computer plugged in for long periods of time, so that it doesn't di


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
Laptop batteries vary from laptop to laptop. i suggest you Google the Internet for a battery for your model laptop.

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

If you haven't use your Nikon Coolpix camera battery for a long time and now there is no power, when you first plug it to charger it maybe show none action. And charger longer it will be well. But if your battery Nikon camera battery are used well these days, and it won't be charge. It means you need a new Nikon battery charger

You'll have to get to the battery terminals while they're charging, and then you can measure the charger voltage, if any (around 12 v).
It sounds like your charger is bad, and you can order one from this site:

The charger port will not take the chargers current to charge the battery.


You got to use the real sh.t and not the cheap imitation China chargers bud. Bite the bullet and get a real Apple charger. If you still can't get a charge, then the battery is the culprit in which you should get a new battery. New battery and charger and still no luck? Then you need this part replaced but you gotta find one that is the same speed processor and model type:
