Battery charger red charging light blinks once then goes out

Do the batteries charge? Are they charged? The green indicator normally is the status signal that the battery is charged and the red indicates that the battery needs charging or is charging. If you plug in a charged battery, some chargers will flash red momentarily then go out. This is an indication that the charger checked the battery (red light) and if the charge is good, the red light will go out. I hope this helps you.

When turn on my laptop,the doesnt respond and the lit on swicth bouton goes off after 30 sec.

Power issue. Assuming that the charger is working ok, the battery is showing as being servicable and the charger port is not loose or damaged, the fault lies with the motherboard.Before blaming the motherboard, try these first

Check that the charger light is not flashing green, indicates that power is not reaching the motherboard.

try removing the battery and ac power, pressing the on / off switch for 30 seconds and then reconnecting the ac charger, see if it boots. if it does, refit battery ( this clears the cmos)

Check also that the cut off switch ( just under the lid bottom) is not fouling and sticking down, if necessary, free it off.

My laptop, dell inspiron 1800, cuts on but after a few seconds cuts back off. it lights up but shuts back off

A few things to check:
1.) Check the battery is charged and the charger is supplying the right voltage and the power jack is tight in the laptop DC port. Check that the charger (on charger) light is steady green, not flashing.

2.) Remove battery and try to boot on AC Power, if this works, either the battery is not charging (dead battery) or the charging circuit in the laptop is damaged.

3.) Remove Ram modules oner at a time, see if it boots with one module in, if it does, then issue is with the ram

4.) Examine the cooling vents, try blowing them to see if any dust is released, hoover them as best you can, if this cures the problem (and it will be a temporary fix), get the laptop stripped down and give it a proper clean around the processor and fan areas. (overheating issue)

If it does not help, then Its looking like your motherboard has developed a fault through maybe overheating

Anomalous charging behaviour :- a) plug in discharged battery b) starts off with the yellow light flashing as usual c) after a very short time the lamp goes off completely - instead of staying on...

Okay, might not be reading this right but here goes. If the camera shows the batteries as full then I'd go with that. The charger will come on for a few seconds even with a freshly charged battery because it take that long for the charger to realize the battery is already full. You can't feed an already full battery, so the charger is shutting off completely. Yes normally the light would stay on and the charger would continue to trickle a charge into it it until it is removed. In your case I think you have those batteries stuffed to the gills so the charger is shutting right down. One of the problems with these batteries is as much as the manufacturers deny it they form a memory. Best thing to do with these rechargeable batteries is drain them right down and then replace with a freshly recharged battery.

Either the battery is hot from use or has been in the sun, let it cool down, then try again.
