Sony notebook's battery charging unit gone

Daughter has a sony notebook that is about a year and a half old...store told her that the battery charging mechanism is not working. My thought is to replace the motherboard since I am told that this is on the motherboard. How difficult and costly is this? I am an IT person and have built several desktops...changed out a couple of hard drives and minor stuff on notebooks...any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated as this was the top of the line book...

> a top of the line book

Then why not pay a professional technician $50 to $100 for about one hour of "labour", to do the disassembly/removal/swap-in/reassembly of the new motherboard.

However, consider "parting-out" the working components (LCD screen, CD/DVD drive, RAM, keyboard, battery, AC adapter) and buying a new notebook computer (and buying the "extended-warranty"), because buying a replacement, proprietary, motherboard from the manufacturer can be _very_ expensive.

Hi, first get a second opinion, I have been able to replace several charge units on notebooks, as this is a new or current model go to the Sony website and contact the Tech's there for the required info about replacement. Goodluck mistyman.

Why will my changer not make a good connection

The charger is working. Your Battery won't take a charge. Does the tablet work when it is plugged in? If so, your battery is not holding a charge anymore. Low budget tablets are famous for this. My daughter has had two that are dead. Both a little over a year old. You can take it to the Microsoft store and see if they have another charger and see if it charges. Otherwise it's the battery.

Hi there,My girls Razor E300 is a year old wont fully charge...

My guess is the batteries have gone bad. They only last about a year before they need to be replaced. You can buy them fairly cheap off of Ebay.

MY 2002 FORD T-BIRD WAS IN STORAGE FOR 6 MONTHS WITH A BATTERY TENDER. IT WON'T START, JUST CRANKS.THIS HAPPENED LAST YEAR. IT FINALLY STARTED AFTER ABOUT 1000 ATTEMPTS. LAST YEAR WE HAD NOT USED A BATTERY...

I've got an old corvette that I store also. I basically disconnect the battery and when I'm ready I charge it for 3 hrs, then start the car. Usually get close to 6 and a half years out of a battery. Five ain't so bad.

How to charge a battery up to 100%

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, until they won't charge up at all.

I CHARGE BATTERY BUT IT WONT HOLD CHARGE

Rechargeable lithium batteries have a half-life of about three years. That means half of the capacity is gone is three years - another quarter in another three years. Replacement batteries can be found online. Even if your battery is not that old, this is the most likely reason for short run-life.
It is often possible to get the chemicals in the battery refilled by an online vendor. This is not only cheaper and makes the battery, literally "better than new", but is also easier on the environment.

AC adapter not recognised

Try charging the battery on one of the other dell's.
If the unit runs for any lengh of time, it is not the motherboard.
It could be the A/C adaptor jack on the side of the unit.
Log a complaint will dell's customer care.

DVD DCP750

The rechargeable battery inside the unit is made by a company called Yuku out of Quongdong, China. It is a 3.7V double layer battery with (3) soldered connections. I have not found a replacement yet, but am still looking.
Even though the unit is new, it does not mean the battery has not gone beyond its expiration date, for chargability. Hence new unit, old battery.

Miccey.
