Power Failure of Lenovo 3000Y400; AC adapter and its power cord are well connected to the computer and power outlet & equip the battery. But my computer still without power indicator & any...


Welcome to Fixya!

You can run the computer by just using the power adapter. Take out the battery and turn on the computer just using the power adapter. If the computer wont turn on then possible problem would be the power adapter itself or the socket where you connected the power adapter to your computer.
You need to send the computer to Lenovo depot repair center for repair.You may try to use other lenovo adapters just to check if the adapter is the problem.

Thank you for using Fixya!

BOOTING PROBLEM


If the computer will not power on:

  1. Make sure the power cord or AC adapter is plugged into the computer and into an electrical outlet that is live.
  2. If it is plugged into a power strip or surge protector make sure it is powered on.
  3. Try using a different electrical outlet.
  4. Check voltage setting on power source (AC Adapters are auto switching).
  5. Perform a power reset on the computer.

To perform a power reset:

  1. Unplug and remove the AC adapter and battery, or power cable from the computer.
  2. Press and hold the power button on the computer for about 30 seconds.
  3. Release the power button and plug the AC adapter and battery, or power cord back into the computer.
  4. Press the power button and see if the computer powers up.
  5. If that does not work, try a different AC adapter, battery, or power cable and repeat these steps.

If the problem persists the computer may need service. You may need to contact Acer support.

My laptop wont start even though the light indicator in the charger is on


You may first try performing the steps mentioned below:
1) Connect the AC adapter into a known working AC outlet and to the DC jack on the notebook.
2) Verify the correct AC adapter is being used, and not a third-party replacement AC adapter.
3) Do not connect the AC adapter to a surge protector or extension cord.
4) If the DC jack on the computer is loose or damaged, the computer may require service.
5) Some AC adapters have a POWER LED indicator and can be confirmed as receiving power by ensuring the LED is lit. If the AC adapter is damaged, or the LED is not lit or continuously flickers when plugged into a working AC outlet, the adapter must be replaced.
6) Attempt to turn on the computer normally.
7) Press and hold the Power Switch for 5 seconds.
8) Remove the battery.
9) Disconnect the AC power adapter.
10) Press and hold the Power Switch for 5 seconds.
11) Connect the AC power adapter.
12) Attempt to turn on the computer.
NOTE: If the computer turns on without the battery, connect and charge the battery for 24 hours.
13) Disconnect all external devices that are connected to the computer.
14) Attempt to turn on the computer.
15) Remove any additional Random Access Memory (RAM) that was installed in the computer.
16) Attempt to turn on the computer.
17) The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue.
If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required.

My laptop comes on but immediately turns back off after a few seconds. What's wrong


Sounds like a build up of static electricity. Try doing a power discharge.

1: Take out the battery.
2: From the adapter box (not the wall) unplug the power cord.
3: Press the power button 10 times. On the eleventh time hold it down between 25-35 seconds.
4: Plug in batter and power cord.

The computer should turn on. If not, the most likely cause is the system board or the AC adapter. You might want to try another AC adapter to ensure that the adapter is not the issue. If it's not the AC adapter then the system board is most likely dead and you need to call Lenovo (800-426-7378) to see if you're under warranty and can get the computer fixed.

I plan on going to the Philippines, can i charge my mini dell 10 using my normal charge cord?


I believe the power system there is different and unstable at best. Get yourself a computer travel kit that has all the different charger adapters for what country and power grid you are going to be in. I know I was in Macy's the other day and they had a decent one that had a multitude of adapter tips and voltage settings for under 30 bucks.

Battery power died and the power cord will not charge or trun on the computer


When you plug in the adapter into the laptop a LED lights up to indicate that it is connected to the mains supply and is charging.
The adapter is faulty or the connector is not making proper electrical contact. Wriggle the connector plug to see if the charge light comes on, if it does then the loose connector needs repairing.

Check the adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage reading should be a slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter. If the voltage is more than 10% below the nominated voltage then replace the adapter it is faulty.

Sony Vaio ac adapter submerged


If the ac adapter was plugged into the laptop at the time may be bad news. Unplug AC adapter, take out the battery and hold power button for 10 seconds. Then connect AC adapter and hit power. If that doesn't work put battery back in without ac adapter and hit power button.

If neither test works bring to repair center for diagnosis. Best case AC adapter would need replacing. Worst case Motherboard fried.

Thanks
