Battery not charging

I have a pup that chewed the charging cord. I repaired it and am getting the
correct voltage out of the cord connector. I am getting on the lower right tray "connected but not charging" Is there a circuit that controls the charging of the battery? What would you suggest?

There is a "sensing" circuit that tells the system the wattage of the AC adapter. If that connection is damaged, the battery charger will not operate.

Most likely, you'll need new, 90 watt, ac adapter.

You shoujld be able to get a replacement for under $30

During trip NM to TN truck acted like battery dead, let rest a few min was fine. Thoughttruck hot. Other day drove 20 min I stalled truck Batt sounded drained,waited few minutes started. Elec or alt


If you found damaged cables, might want to first replace them to see if it corrects your problem. While doing this, you may want to check to see if your alternator is performing it's job of charging the truck battery.

How do I put a red white and yellow cord back


The best way is to replace the cord. Another way is to use butt connectors. They look like little tubes.To use these you need a connector crimping tool. The connectors needed must match the size of the wire and the correct amount of insulation must be removed.To little removed and you get a poor connection. To much you get bare wire showing at the connector and a shock hazard. Then you put the same color wire into each end of the connector and crimp it in place. 3 wires = 3 connectors. To add some strain relief wrap the whole area with electricle tape covering the undamaged cord for about an inch or more on each side of the damaged area.

The t.v powers on for just a second and clicks off. I can hear a click from the back and it recycles off/on over and over.


open the set remove all but the ac cord connectors from the power supply; label them first! turn on the tv if the power supply does not recycle turn off the set and, connect and, disconnect each cable one at a time going to the power supply turning the set on and, off each time as you test until the power supply cycles (fails) again then repair or, replace the circuit board that causes the power supply to fail. if the power supply cycles on and, off (fails) with all connectors but, the ac cord disconnected repair or, replace the power supply.

Repaired cord is not working


make sure the plug is wired correctly .. the colors of wires depend on what country it came from .. in the US it would have a black, white and green wire ... the black wire would be connnected to the small flat prong (thats the AC hot wire) .. the white wire would be connected to the wide flat prong (thats AC return) and the green wire would go to the round grouund connection .. if these are not wired correctly then it may not work and could be dangerous .. have it checked by anyone that is familiar with electronics .. make sure the pup didnt chew another spot on the wire ... ..

Battery power died and the power cord will not charge or trun on the computer


When you plug in the adapter into the laptop a LED lights up to indicate that it is connected to the mains supply and is charging.
The adapter is faulty or the connector is not making proper electrical contact. Wriggle the connector plug to see if the charge light comes on, if it does then the loose connector needs repairing.

Check the adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage reading should be a slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter. If the voltage is more than 10% below the nominated voltage then replace the adapter it is faulty.

Power chord must must moved continually to show charge


Yes, this is common, if the power cord at the connector is flexed continually then the metal fibres in the cord will break due to metal fatigue.
You can cut off the connector away from the break and fit a new connector on the cord, make sure the the wires are soldered correctly to provide the correct polarity at the connector.
The problem could be at the laptop where the connector plugs into the laptop's power socket. It could have a dry solder joint or the socket is faulty. This requires dismantling to repair.
The HP warranty would cover the normal warranty period and would not extended for worn parts.

My laptop will not charge!! the charger works, but it just wont charge my laptop!


most likely either a bad connector on the power cord or you've broken the motherboard connector. check the power cord with a volt meeter. if it comes up fine the i would recommend either contacting the manufacture or taking it to a reputable tech. if you are comfortable with doing it you can take the laptop apart and look at the connector with the laptop apart plug it in (CAREFULL IT COULD KILL YOU) and test the voltage after the connector wit the volt meeter. if it has power then most likely *********** board is dead. if it doesn't have power then you need to repair/replace the power connector.

Try a standard multi voltage charger. These come with a selection of connectors each one of a specific size and color coded. so you pick the connector to fit the input jack then set the charger to the appropriate color to give the correct voltage.
