No, that means there is singeing where there should not be singeing. You can get your adaptor tested free, and you can also get your battery tested (they only last a year or two, depending on use.)

You filed your problem under Packard Bell PC Desktops...and it's for a laptop.  Start over!

Plug in not charging


You may have to take the laptop apart. My Acer was not charging because my son would have the a/c power adaptor rub against his leg (where it entered the laptop)...But !!! first do you have a voltage meter, check the power supply 1st probably a bad a/c adaptor. If not go to YouTube and see if there is a video that shows how to dismantle your laptop. Be happy it is not your cooling fan..they build the entire laptop around the cooling fans. A trip to the dentist is more fun than replacing a laptop cooling fan.

My laptop wont charge


If your laptop isn't charging, it's usually one of two problems:

1) Your AC adaptor isn't working correctly anymore. It may be faulty, or may simply have endured all the wear and tear it can handle.

2) Your battery is either dead or dying, and is no longer charging correctly.

If the problem is your AC adaptor, a simple replacement will fix the issue. If the problem is your battery, then it gets a little more expensive (batteries usually aren't cheap).

Most laptops come with software to help monitor battery life and so on. Dell, for example, have their "Quickset" software, which can tell you if your battery is operating properly or not.

If you give me more details on the specifics of your laptop, I can help more. Manufacturer/Model?

Hope that helps.

Toshiba replacement power cable


Sounds like you bought a generic replacement item. The laptop has circuitry to detect which adaptor is connected to it. If it detects that the adaptor is not capable of charging and operating at the same time, it will act accordingly. The adaptor has a power rating in watts. That number must be equal to the original or greater to work properly.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Toshiba satellite pro a200 The laptop has stop recharging, i don't know if its the battery or the adapter or the actual laptop with the problem? please help!!!


First do not remove battery and use charger only. Lets start at the beginning first if you are using a UK three point plug check the fuse in the plug. Next some adaptors have a small green light on when connected to the mains. Another way to check the adaptor is, if you no someone with a multi meter (used to check voltages etc) get them to check if there is a reading from the end you plug into the computer should read 19volt. That would check your charging adaptor. Battery well if adaptor is charging then it is almost likely to be your battery.
If you have to replace the battery take it with you when you go for the replacement and ask them to check it in another laptop if they wont do this go elsewhere.
By what you say you have a fault with the adaptor.
Good luck

This is a problem with the power adapter that you may need to replace it already since that is causing the laptop not to work properly.

TOSHIBA SATELLITE NOT STARTING.


mine does the same thing and is new. you should be fine with what you have for a while, unless you just want to replace the battery, the battery goes bad after a few years, thats what I have heard anyway.
