Computer will not turn on even with power cord

1. Disconnect any devices connected to the computer including printers, hubs, and third-party keyboards or mice, and test the computer again by trying to turn it on.
2. Find out whether the battery on your Apple portable has power. Press the small button on the side or bottom of the computer, depending on the model. Lights should indicate the battery's level of charge. A single blinking light means the battery needs to be recharged. Connect the adapter to recharge the battery.
3. Unplug the power adapter from the electrical outlet and from the MacBook Pro. Wait one minute. Plug it back into the wall first, then to the computer. Make sure the electrical outlet is working by plugging in another device (such as a lamp). When you plug the adapter back into the computer, the power adapter LED should light up green or amber. If the light does not come on or the computer continues to not power on, proceed to step four.
4. Inspect your MagSafe power adapter. See Apple Portables: Troubleshooting MagSafe adapters for instructions on cleaning the adapter and more details for these steps:
  • Check the MagSafe connector on the adapter for any bent or damaged pins, debris, or alignment issues with the connector.
  • Check the MagSafe connector on the computer for any debris, damaged pins, or alignment issues.
  • Check the MagSafe adapters cabling for any wear or cable issues.
5. Make sure you are using the adapter that was designed for your computer. If you aren't sure or if you need a different adapter, learn which adapter is appropriate for your computer.
6. Review the steps for resetting the SMC (System Management Controller) on your Apple portable computer.
7. If you recently installed additional memory or a hard drive not made by Apple, make sure it is installed correctly and is compatible with your computer.
8. If you are still unable to start up your computer after trying each of these steps, schedule a service appointment with an Apple Retail Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider.

I cannot turn the printer on

These are the possible solutions:
  • Press power button.
  • Disconnect and reconnect the power cord. Plug the printer's power cord straight into an electrical outlet that other electrical devices have been using. Bypass any surge devices or power strips.
  • Unplug the power adapter from printer (rectangular black box inserted in the printer where the power cord is attached). With the power cord attached to it and other end plugged into the power outlet in the wall, check if it's warm/hot but not too hot, that means it's working fine.

If these does not help, it could be a possible defective power adapter issue. Please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance. Thanks.

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.

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.

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.

Power cord


Have you tried Toshiba Phils? Perhaps tehy can help, here are their contact details should you need it.

Alternately, if you are anywhere near Gonzalo Puyat (formerly Raon) you can try bringing the AC adapter and try fitting replacement power cord readily available on most stores. Additionally, most electronics part stores carry generic/replacement power cords and one should fit.

There are some versions that uses the same power cord as that of a desktop PC.

If you need the entire power adapter with cord, pls try here or here. Incidentally, any power adapter rated at 12VDC output @ 4amps should also work, you just have to make sure the polarity of the crown plug matches the Toshiba.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

AC adapters

You will definitely want an AC adapter for your camera. You won't want to be tethered to an electrical cord while taking pictures, but when it comes time to edit the pictures stored on your memory card(s) or to download your photos onto a computer, you'll find the job much easier if you're running the camera via an AC adapter. Without the continuous power of an adapter, you'll burn through your batteries.
