It's a hardware problem of some sort but it could be the battery, the charger, or the input on the netbook itself. Trying a new battery or a new charger might work but you probably need to take the netbook into a shop to have someone troubleshoot the problem. Or if it's still under warranty since it's been less than a year, call Acer support and see if they will fix it for free.

Before buying a new battery and borrow from someone like the battery charger. Try either the battery is charging. or a second battery. You can find out whether an error loading chip are faulty or defective battery or battery charger.

Packard bell netbook nav50 battery stopped charging properly. bought a new charger and battery and it still wont charge it up.


LOL, I didn't know Packard Bell was still making computers. I would think they sold you a bad battery. I've purchased new batteries before that would not charge.

Replace your battery to solve this trouble.

Get a battery from a FixYa.com advertiser or anywhere computer batteries are sold.

My asus 100p netbook is not charging. its only 2 months old and now when i plugged the adapter its is lighting but the battery indicator is not lighting. i am running low in battery now.


First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the netbook & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your netbook voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the netbook ) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the netbook's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the netbook's rating. It should never be less than the netbook's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the netbook, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the netbook & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another netbook, or try a good or new battery in your netbook.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the netbook's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the netbook needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the netbook's motherboard altogether.

My netbook power cord is no longer working. the netbook charges fine on my labtop cord. will this cause any problems to the netbook?


Not at all. Especially if the power adapter is providing enough power to both run the netbook & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your netbook voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the netbook) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter.

Kodak Easy Share z712 IS not detecting charged battery


I have the exact same camera almost a year too. It is a total "swinka" on batteries. About 10-15 shots on super ni-cads, and quits without warning.

A pair of Energizer 7X gave me near 500 shots. Much cheaper but still ...

So 4 months ago I bought a charger and 2 rechargeables. Charge one while using the other one.
I may get 70-90 shots per charge on these lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, without flash.

Testing the batteries without a load doesn't really tell you anything.
What's the reading? Should be well over 4 volts when fully charged. Mine show 4.2V
