    Nope still no power. i don't think the battery is the problem, because i was on my computer before it died because there was no charge getting to the battery.

Try using your laptop without the battery and just using your power supply (new universal or your old one).
If your laptop works on just mains power it means your battery is causing the problem, which is not unusual.

My HP Mini Netbook will not turn on and the battery will not charge.


Perhaps your AC Adapter is bad. That is the cable that plugs into the wall and then into your laptop to charge it. Take the laptop into your local computer repair shop to see if they have a used replacement, or a Universal Laptop charger. We sell them at my store. www.ravencomputers.com. If you can't find one, go to our website and either email us or call us and let us know, we can ship anywhere in the US. If you try another AC Adapter and it still won't charge, then most likely your battery is bad. You can also try pulling the battery out and trying to turn it on with just the AC Adapter plugged in. If that works, then you know the battery is bad.

I have Samsung NP-R505H laptop. My laptop won't


You say it isn't charging, but will it run off of AC power? If it isn't getting *ANY* AC power, then it might be the female end of the power jack on the laptop. If it will run on AC, the culprit is likely to be a battery that needs replaced.

bad battery,
you do know that the main batteries are "love to fail"
right,
just about all batteries do that in everything,
even the coin cell,inside can fail in 5years flat.

if power pack is 19vdc with volt meter, good !
the battery is next, yes it runs pc but can be bad.
a bad battery can still have power but overloads the charger chip
it really is an analog world. (reality)
if savvy , always keep a spare battery for moments like this.

Will not charge or run off 120 power


The only way to charge the battery is with a _WORKING_ AC adapter.
Find a technician with a MultiMeter, and test to confirm that the AC adapter is putting out the correct voltage and amperage.

Take the laptop to an electronics store, and ask if they have a "universal" AC adapter that is compatible with your Lenovo,
and get them to "test" the adapter. If your laptop runs, then buy that adapter, from them, of course.

If not, then something else is wrong "inside" your computer,
and only Lenovo's technicians can trouble-shoot and repair.

  1. Plug the charger adapter into the charging port on the bottom of the HP iPAQ Pocket PC.
    Figure : Charging the battery
  2. When the power indicator on the top of the HP iPAQ Pocket PC turns solid amber, the unit is fully charged and can be disconnected from the AC adapter (approximate time to fully charge a unit is four hours).
NOTE: The amber charge light blinks while the battery is recharging and turns solid (nonblinking) when the battery is fully charged.In the event of a low backup battery warning, charge the unit immediately before removing the main battery to avoid data loss. To view the amount of charge left in the backup battery, tap Start, Settings, the System tab, and Power.
Charging with the universal desktop cradle and AC adapter Use the universal desktop cradle to charge the HP iPAQ Pocket PC, or synchronize the HP iPAQ Pocket PC with a computer.
Follow these steps to charge the HP iPAQ Pocket PC using the universal desktop cradle:
  1. Plug the AC adapter into an electrical outlet and connect the other end of the AC adapter to the AC connector on the universal desktop cradle.
  2. Connect the serial or USB cradle cable into the appropriate port on the desktop PC.Figure : Connecting with the cradle
  3. Slide the bottom of the HP iPAQ Pocket PC into the cradle and push firmly to seat it.
CAUTION: To avoid damaging the HP iPAQ Pocket PC or the cradle, make sure the pins are aligned before pushing the HP Pocket PC into the cradle.
    Figure : Charging with the universal desktop cradle
  1. AC adapter into electrical outlet
  2. AC adapter into universal desktop cradle
  3. HP iPAQ Pocket PC into cradle
NOTE: The amber charge light blinks while the battery is recharging and turns solid (nonblinking) when the battery is fully charged.There are stabilizers located in the universal desktop cradle that assist in aligning the unit when there is no expansion pack attached. When placing the HP iPAQ Pocket PC with an expansion pack attached into the universal desktop cradle, the stabilizers will be pushed down by the expansion pack. To release the stabilizers for use without an expansion pack, press the button on the back of the cradle.
Charging with the optional USB Autosync cable Charge the HP iPAQ Pocket PC using the optional USB Autosync cable by connecting the Autosync cable to the HP Pocket PC and the personal computer. The HP Pocket PC will be charged using power from the personal computer.
For more information on charging the HP Pocket PC using the optional USB autosync cable, from the Today screen, tap Start, Settings, the Systemtab, Power, the USB Charging tab, Settings, and Help.
Charging a low battery The HP iPAQ Pocket PC will not turn on if the battery has a low charge (less than 3.2 Volts). Fully charge the battery prior to using the HP Pocket PC.
If the charge on the battery goes below the 3.2 Volts as a result of not being connected to the universal desktop cradle or the AC adapter, no damage will occur to the battery. However, the HP iPAQ Pocket PC charge indicator light will not flash until the battery reaches the minimum charge of 3.2 Volts and a normal reset is performed.
Follow these steps to charge and reset the HP iPAQ Pocket PC:
  1. Connect the HP iPAQ Pocket PC to an A/C power supply.
  2. Charge the battery to the minimum level of 3.2 Volts (this will take 5 to 30 minutes depending on the current charge level).
  3. Perform a normal reset by using the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the HP iPAQ Pocket PC.
  4. Turn on the HP iPAQ Pocket PC.
Keep the HP iPAQ Pocket PC connected to the universal desktop cradle or AC adapter when it is not in use.

My laptop HP Pavillion ZV6000, battery started decreasing and wouldn't charge when the ac adapter was connected. I purchased another ac adapter thinking that was my problem. It didn't work. Now I have...


As others have said, the most common fault with the ZV series is the power socket. However, you mentioned the Lightning Bolt. This indicates that the battery is being charged and it should go out as soon as the battery is fully charged.

If the Lightning Bolt flashes on and off regularly, especially when the power cable is moved, then the socket is at fault and needs replacing.

You can check to see if the battery is receiving a charge by doing the following

1. Right Click the Desktop
2. Click Properties
3. Click the Screen Saver tab
4. Click the Power button
5. Click the Power Meter tab

This will tell you the computer's current power source and whether the battery is charging.

I have replaced several of these sockets on ZV5000s and I'm sure the 6000 will be similar. I would not recommend this job for anyone without technical knowledge, despite some of the websites that say you can do it yourself. You will need to strip the entire laptop down and all but remove the motherboard before the socket can be replaced.

Hope this helps
