This is an area a technician should repair,faults in other areas of your computer may occur if not carried out correctly,
Warrantees are definately void if you attempt this type of repair and kill your motherboard (costly replacements)without prior experience I would give it to the technicians,
Solder is solder but comon sense must also prevail first.
Technician repair $100nzd replace mother board $400nzd(approx)check out some prices yourself,you may be pleasantly supprised.
I am an Electrician and have serviced many laptops over the years,,

Your question which one is the data line?
None of them are data lines at all,they are power not data.

>>>>Power Kills,Instantly,Anyone & Without prejudice,
>>>>Please Be Extremely careful.

the colour codes you explain describe the voltage supply colours which are governed by standards worldwide,different colours for different countries.

In New Zealand the wiring codes for these colours are specific,Brown = Live , Blue = Neautral , Bare = Ground/Earth

Tools required,
Multimeter,Small screw driver, solder iron,solder

Assuming you dismantled this unit,
the same process of connection will apply but in reverse ,
put the connections back the way you found them,
just taking extra special care not to short any connections thru excess solder,testing should be with a multimeter,
condinuity first then voltage,
output voltage of the charger is printed on base or body
you can check output before connection to jack and input of new soldered part for consistancy of circuitry,
Leave on charge if alls well and enjoy.

Do you know what the pin layout for the charger (Dell Latitude CPx PA-9) is?


I do not agree with butchering the adapter but here may be a clue. There are three wires, The blue tells the adapter it is plugged in to the laptop. The outer sheath is 0v and inner sheath is +ve.

Dell battery plugging point bent...urgent help needed


You are going to have to have that plug in piece re-done with a new piece on the mother board soldered. Who ever told you to remove pieces was way wrong. Now as a result your going to have to have this done or you will not be able to use the laptop. Those pieces are meant to give you better support for the plug in and are also the ground. Take it in and have it done professionally. I would not mess with it anymore.

I have a Kensington universal laptop charger for my Dell Inspiron. I have lost the adapter plug. Can I purchase, just the plug, rather than purchasing a new charger?


WELL AT DELL SERVICE CENTER YOU MAY HAVE TO BUY A NEW COMPLETE CHARGER BUT THAT WILL BE COSTLY INSTEAD YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN PLUG .ALL YOU NEED IS JUST A SET OF WIRE AND A THREE PI N PLUG.

I have a Latitude D600 laptop. When I plug in my headphones, the sound still plays through the built in speakers. When I twist the plug in the jack I can sometimes get sound in the headphones but it still...


I dont think the JACK is the problem, I suspect a bad headphone wire (intermittent) or an incorrect driver, headphone jacks in laptops are software controlled, (no mechanical switch inside) if you hear sound in both the headphones and the speakes it is a driver issue, try updating the driver, if the headphone wire is erratic it can fool the software that controlls the input and do crazy things also...

Good luck!

Where is cmos battery located in Dell d505?


It's called the Reserve Battery in a Dell Latitude D505.
(It's also called an RTC battery in others, {Real Time Clock battery}, and CMOS battery in older laptops)

1.Remove the AC adapter if plugged in. (Charger)

2.Remove the Battery.

3.Right up against the outside edge of the battery compartment, in the middle. you will see the battery latch.

Push it down. The Reserve Battery Cover will come loose at the top. Rotate the top, towards the inside of the battery compartment.
The Reserve Battery is right there.

Pull the Reserve Battery towards the battery compartment.
(Comes right out of the small rectangular compartment it is in)

(It looks like three round coins put side by side, and has a green plastic coating around it.

In actuality, there are coin sized watch batteries inside that green plastic cover)

You will see a Red wire, and a Black wire twisted together, that go to a small white connector. The connector is two piece. Separate the connector, and you can take the Reserve Battery out.

Charger isnt recognized


Dell portables use a sensing wire in the barrel of the adapter plug to determine the wattage of the ac adapter. If that fine wire in the center of the plug is bent or broken, the system cannot ID the adapter and the battery charger is disabled.
SO, first try a known good AC adapter for a D-Series Dell (You might be able to check with Geek Squad at a local Best Buy if you don'e have access to another ac adapter) If a known good ac adapter works, then replace the ac adapter.
If a known good AC adapter does the same thing then the fault is in the charging circuit of the motherboard and the motherboard will need to be replaced.

My Dell latitude d610 charging circuit not working on board


What needs to be done is the jack that your adaptor plugs into has solder points underneath it. All the solder points need to be resoldered to make sure that there are no cracks in the solder that are preventing the jack from charging your battery.

After this is done if the laptop still isn't charging then if you know for sure your using the correct ac adaptor with your laptop then at that point the moterboard would have to be replaced.

DELL LATITUDE D600 WON'T POWER UP AT ALL!


The charger may be bad. You need to measure the output voltage at the computer end of the cord with a voltmeter. Zero volts means bad unit, but may be just the plug end wires are broken near the plug (common problem). A repair shop might be able to fix it with a new plug. A new charger is outrageously expensive.

Dell has cheap chargers, the wire snapped on the inside underneath the rubber. My ex boyfriends charger had the same thing happen. You need to buy a totally new charger .
