    Thanks tatonot, it seems that the battery was shot. I connected charger's cable directly to phone batt terminals and got the screen.
    Thanks for guiding me.

If charger voltage is ok then it could be phones charging controler is not working. if phonebook is only thing you need could recharge battery directly from your charger and then save your phone book. cut off charging plug-connector from your charger make two bare wires and then apply red wire to battery "+" and blck to "-". 5min of charging will be enough to copy your data

Can a battery charger for a camera, electric shaver, cell phone and cordless tool etc., be pluged into this power inverter without damaging those type of batteries.


It's not the battery that might be damaged. It would be the charger. What the charger does after it is damaged might be when and if a battery could be harmed.

Generally any AC powered device plugged into an inverter will work pretty well as long as the inverter is not putting out too poor of an AC voltage AND you don't exceed the inverter's rating.

Hp probook 4530 ac connected indicator flashing. will not power up


Either your charger is not providing the perfect voltage or there is a short circuit in your motherboard. Try replacing the charger first. If still the problem persists then you should check the connector. try resoldering it cause loose connection in it also sometimes causes this problem.or you need to change the motherboard finally.

Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? Ifnot then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket.If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED lightstays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder jointwhere it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

I have a Dell Inspirion 1525. The Battery would not charge and the light would flash orange. I bought a new one and upgraded from a 6 cell to a 9. Now it says plugged in but not charging and the batt light...


Hello,

Firstly, i suggest you try to use the charger with a similar laptop to see if it will charge it.

If it does, it means the charger is still very much good.

And as for the battery you change, it will be better for you you to check the voltage rate on your charger and the voltage rate on the battery because it is very possible, the voltage rate of your charger might not be able to power your new battery.

The voltage of the new battery might be higher than what the battery could power, so you might need to get the same voltage rating of charger for the new battery.

**** you can still test the charger with a similar laptop to be sure the charger is still good.

Take care.

Dell insprion laptop not charging the battery, showing IDLE when charger is connected to it, my charger is showing idle even in bios setting what is the problem


remove battery.
connect ac adapter.
make sure ac adapter led is on.
connect ac adapter to laptop.
check if ac adapter led still on after connection laptop.
turn on laptop then check bios if ac adapter is determined.
check bios as well if it is updated. if not then download the latest bios update from dell support site.
after updating bios charge the batt while laptop is not use. check if changes will happen on the number of charge. make sure you check the charge in bios not in windows.
if charge in bios made changes while on windows still says idle and not charging then reinstall the OS.
if all fails no changes in charge % batt then have the batt replaced.

Charging problem!!! PLEASE READ!


as i think that charger was not compatible to your phone so when you tried charging it the battery is dead bcoz of excess voltage than it normally bears with the compatible charger of ur phone ...
so this excess voltage has made the battery to be short circuited due to this may be the charging ic or the capacitor is gone ...
so i suggest you to take the cell to the near by technician and just have a check...

the only problem with all motorola phones is that it only charges with the charger with the desired voltage ... if the voltage of the charger is low then it will not show any response(i mean it will not charge but it will not cause any thing to battery as it is of less voltage than the desired voltage )
so i think the charger you buyed provides more than the desired voltage so the battery is dead .....
