SOURCE: battery not charging

I would advise you to try this:

1......Make sure the unit is completely off.

2...........Hold down the "FN" key and turn the unit on with the main sliding Power switch and immediately start to tap the "F11" key.

3.............The unit will look likes it's shutting down. Let it do this three times.

This resets the CMOS. On first boot, the POST will check the RAM and inform you that changes have been made. Accept the changes.
This also resets all of the information in the BIOS to the defaults. If you have made changes (security passwords, asset numbers,etc.) enter the BIOS first and record all these settings so you can restore them afterwards.

The problem with your system is that the Battery you are using is Faulty is either the current voltage spoilt it or may be is an old age battery
What you will have to do is to get another Battery that you will first of all Charge it well before usage ok. nice

This error is commonly seen in Compaq laptops. Take out the battery,start the laptop with the adapter only and see if that error message pops up again and if not then it might be your battery.Usually battery life is 3yrs. Put the battery back again and see if the message pops up again. Try the battery on a different laptop. It could be the Voltage Converter Board...see service manual for the same or call Compaq service centre.

I have charged the battery overnight. The scooter was working fine and the next minute not at all. What could this be?


to many determinations from not hooked up correctly to be charged to battery failure -to circuit failure --start with test batteries --could be failure -if good will need to test the circuit and components like the switches motor connections etc

Dell ADAMO 13 w/Vista 64 Random power failure...goes dead in 1 second. Battery fully charged. Happened with external power and when on battery. I have latest BIOS v6.0. I ran pre-boot diagnostics...


If the power totally fails (i.e. power is cut off, LEDs turn off, fans stop, ... etc), then this more likely to be because of a short circuit developing in a failing semiconductor component, or a power supply problem.
However, if the laptop is still running & only the display on its LCD is cut off but the laptop itself stays powered on, then your laptop might be experiencing a failing screen inverter board, a failing screen backlight lamp, or a failing LCD screen cable.

TYPICAL INVERTER FAILURE SYMPTOMS

1. When you turn on the laptop, the screen lights up for a short period of time and then goes dark. You still can see an image but it is very dark, almost invisible and definitely not usable. When you restart the laptop, the screen lights up and then goes dark again. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
2. Your laptop turns on but the screen remains dark all the time. You still can see a very dim image outline. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
3. The laptop screen works fine for hours or even days, but sometimes it goes very dark as it mentioned above. When you restart the laptop, the screen works fine again.

Inverter failure symptoms are very similar to backlight lamp failure symptoms and in most cases you cannot tell which one is causing the problem until you replace either the inverter board or the backlight lamp. From my personal experience, inverter boards fail more often than backlight lamps. If you have to guess, replace the inverter first.

Need a schematic for a belkin F6C120-unv. All functions of the unit work fine other than the charging circuit won't keep the batteries charged. Runs about 24.7 volts, but keeps getting lower as the...


When batteries discharge during ac power it could indicate charger failure or micro failure or some other wierdness. makers do not release cd info. The best thing is.. buy another one as they can be very difficult to repair and of course they are dangerous, batteries are always live, waiting to bite you. I have worked on and repaired such circuits as the AP 200 series resonant converter and selling and hiring UPS for a long time. Beyond the simple easy checks youhave done the time it takes to understand how they work can better be used.

Battery won't charge


These use a new generation smart adapter with a data circuit. Try another battery first but if it works fine on adapter it should not hurt anything. These models are also coming out of the woodwork with charging circuit failure, Video circuit failures and more. Good luck!
