Question about Dell POWER SUPPLY PS-5201-5D (PS52015D) Power Supply

1 Answer

Latitude D505 Just bought new charger so the problem its not powercord or some I guess. The charger /PA-1650-05D/ has small green light what comes on when pluged. Problem is, when I plug it in the laptop /Dell Latitude D505/ the green light dissapeares and there is not measureable power end of the powercord. Took laptop apart to see is there anything wrong with a jack but could not see anything not a crack on connection or some. Have to unplug my power from socket, plug it again and tried to measure the jack pins, even didnt see the green light but of course nothing. Pls help, for the only thing Ive been advise to change the motherboard, but the whole laptop doesnt worth, what they asking for one. Hope there could be another solution and sorry for my bad language. Thx!

Just repaired a laptop with the same symptoms:
Won't charge the battery, won't power from AC.
Also if you power the AC adapter when not connected to laptop you get green power LED on the adapter. When you plug it in the laptop the green power LED immediately goes out.

Opened it up and found SO-8 P-ch mosfet by the DC input socket. Source (pins1,2,3) is connected to the inner barrel (+19.5V), Gate 4 gets driven low, applying the input to the Drain. (pins 5,6,7,8) On my board the drain was short to GND. Applying power directly to the Drain via a current limited bench PSU (set 1A limit) showed a couple of volts.

Placing a finger on the opposite side of the board revealed a SMT ceramic cap getting hot.
CP13 I think. Opposite side to the power connector, almost under it. I would guess at 1206 or slightly larger and there is an 0402 cap just next to its bottom pad at 90 degrees to it. Cap was glued before soldering so had to flow both sides at the same time with a soldering iron and force off. Would likely have been 1uF or bigger 25V. Removal restored operation. Runs OK without but would suggest putting something in there 0.1uF 1206 50V, perhaps a couple stacked ?

BTW you have to strip down everything and remove the main board to get to the cap :-(

Hope this info is of use....

I got a dell latitde d505 wont power on or anthing no blinking lights no noises. i plug it into the charger n the charger light goes off. can some1 please help me??


Sounds like you may have fried your dell latitude. I have seen many laptop's fry and it is nothing you did, but they just go sometimes.

Recomendaitons:
Take the battery out of the laptop.
Plug the charger in.
Hold the power button for a minimum 10 secs (which will reset the power options)
If there are still no lights than it is your cpu
If the computer turns on then you have a bad battery.

When batteries are bad or dead, the computer tries to run off of the battery befor the charger, it switches over to the charger after your OS has booted. In that case you can just order a new one no big deal, but if your cpu is fried then there is no hope for the laptop. :( I have lost four laptops because of this, so for your sake I hope its the battery or the GND Drain.

Also possible that the GND's drain on your board is too short and Gate 4 is driving low. To fix this you have to remove a SMT ceramic cap, which is located opposite side to the power connector, almost under it. I would guess at 1206 or slightly larger and there is an 0402 cap just next to its bottom pad at 90 degrees to it. A couple of Dell Latitude d505 have had this problem and can easily be fixed, but must be cautious and know what you are doing. I would advise seeing a professional.

Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

There's no fuse problem with that computer, try this first, Plug in the charger to an outlet don't plug it in the laptop, if the light on the charger turns on, then the charger is working try to plug it on the computer if the light on the charger goes out there's a problem with your motherboard. Contact the tech support for that so you can get that part replaced.
To double check try to use a known good charger if it works then you'll need another charger if not, Then contact your tech support for your dell make sure you still have a warrant.

Hope this helps!

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.

Old battery not charging plug in charger green light goes out


If the system will not power on, and the LED on the AC adapter goes out when plugged into the system, then the most likely senario is the motherboard has failed. Remove the battery, Wireless card, Drives, RAM and connect the AC adapter see if anything changes. If no change, the MB is most likely bad.

Latitude Charger wrong


Firstly, you should try to use correct sentence structure.

Secondly, as long as it's a pa-10 or pa-12 for the d600 you should be fine. the chargers are not specific to each laptop, rather they are more specific to the dell product family(the type of power connectors on each).
