This is a common problem with the T20 & T30 series Thinkpads. The problem is with the power management chip on the motherboard. The pm chip regulates & controls the power input & usage, allows the machine to switch from AC to battery, and controls the charging. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix it.

    Most, if not all shops will replace the entire motherboard versus fixing it or replacing the chip. I've tried repairing just the chip, but only had about a 20% success rate. The bigger problem is that you can't get the chip, and IBM support won't or can't tell you what it is (make, model, part number,etc..) The chips I used were from non working boards that I had. So, with that said, yes you can get it repaired, but the motherboard will have to be replaced. If you want to fix it your self, or just get the motherboard yourself I would suggest checking Ebay for the board. You can get a decent deal, and save quite a bit of money by getting the board there instead of having a shop get it for you. Any of the T30 series boards will work.

We had this problem with a brand new DS Lite...turns out it was a bad charger. If you have access to another charger, try that first. Good luck!

Doesnt work plug in charger but it doeant charge &libht doesnt come on


I would suggest making sure the outlet you plug the DS into has power. Some outlets do not work unless the room's lights are on. If you have already tried that, I would suggest contacting Nintendo customer service at 1-800-255-3700 or going to http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/index.jsp as it could be a problem with the DS charging outlet or the DS charger itself.

Plugged in, not charging inspiron 1521


Hi,
 
This is a known issue with the AC adapter. If you are under warranty Dell would replace the AC adapter which will fix the issue. If not you may need to purchase one. Also do make sure you have the latest BIOS update on the laptop.
 
Latest BIOS
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R178138&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1521&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=13136&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=242484
Before updating the BIOS make sure you unplug all the USB devices and restart the computer once, and only then start the BIOS update.
 
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
Thanks,
VJ

Dell Inspiron 2200 Charger Malfunction


Try to turn off the computer and remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook. Turn on the computer with just the charger plugged in. If it doesnt turn on. you may have a bad power port.

If it has no power/charging issue since that happened except that the indicator light doesnt turn on when you plug in the charger, you may just need a bios update. Click here. That's the bios update for the inspiron 2200 from dell's website. You should have at least 30% charge on the battery and the ac adapter should be plugged in so you can run it. The computer will restart and will come back normally after this. I'd suggest that you backup your files before running this.

Ds lite charging lite comes on but when i press power button nothing happens


Are you leaving the DS charge until the light comes off? Remember that there are two likes too, one for charging and one for power. If you're just charging for some random period of time (lets say... One hour) then your Battery isn't going to be fully charged. The best way to ensure that your DS Lite is charged is to leave it charge until the charge light turns off. You can play your DS Lite while you are charging (I do it all the time), but it just means that you're just running off of the outlet.

A good test is to charge it fully (until the charge light comes off), unplug the charger cord (Make sure it's secured tightly to your DS while charging), then play for a little bit, your light should be a normal color (green).

If you cannot even play by using the outlet, then you need to
find a charger cord that actually works (You may need to send in the charger for replacement). If the same thing happens with 2 different batteries (assuming that you have two official Nintendo batteries).

TIP: Also run your fingers across the Charger cord. You're going to get a slight friction burn from the rubber, but you're going to get all of the kinks out of the wire in the cord. My charger cord had a similar problem (did not charge all the way, only charged until I moved the DS) but when I ran my fingers across it (pinching) it worked again.

Also check the pins in both charger cords, charging will not work if one pin is missing, nor if any are bent.

may be the charger is not correct... if it is correct also the pin hole which connect the cell may have became big.... or ur cell charging pin is damaged.... just try with the another charger... u will get rid of it...

if it doesnt works means surely the charging pin in cell is damaged... get replaced with the technician....
