Dell Laptop Power Supply Fading In and Out--power jack is bad or loose?

Q: Dell Laptop Power Supply Fading In and Out--power jack is bad or loose?

I have a Dell 8600 about two years old. When I plug in the AC adapter, it intermittently fades to the battery as though the plug was pulled out (its not) and of course the screen fades in an out when every time it swithces--it does it every 30 to 60 seconds or so. I switched to a different AC adapter (I have a Dell 600M with the same AC adapter)-same thing so I know it is something internally. Any ideas?

Toshiba Satellite L305-5955, Ive taken apart and replaced power jack. Not directly soldered to motherboard. While still apart, and battery out/in, connected power supply and still absolutely no response. Power supply is NOT original, and slightly different specs, i.e original 19v..6.3A

current 19v..3.1A
 

A:Toshiba Satellite L305-5955 does not respond to power supply, new power jack

Almost certainly the problem is that the current rating is wrong, if the laptop needs
6.3 A of current, it won't function on less (just as you can't use a 3A fuse for a kettle!)
Unfortunately it must be the right current rating, I know, I've been caught that way too!
Maybe you can exchange it?

I have my dad's older HP Laptop (its about 4 to 5 years old) and the power jack is really loose. Before I was able to plug it in and gently push the cord in for a couple of seconds and the light would come on. Now that doesn't happen. Is there and easy way to fix this? Can I buy something like http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-HP-XC10...rs_Chargers&hash=item20c4b0eb23#ht_1970wt_922 and use that in place of the power jack?

I'm basically asking for a solution that will be extremely gentle on my wallet.
 

A:Power Jack Loose

The power cord you linked to is not a laptop power adapter. If the DC Jack on the computer is loose, the DC Jak would have to be replaced. It would be wise to take it to a shop that specializes in Laptop repairs and get an estimate for replacing the DC Jack. If they start out by saying the Motherboard needs to be replaced before they crack the case open. Try another shop. Though with a loose DC jack it could mean that there is some Motherrboard damage, but the case would have to be opened to determine that.

My R13 (R7-371T) DC Power Jack is loose and continues to flip-flop between charging and on battery, despite being plugged in.  This is the second time I have had this problem! The first time it was under warranty, so I sent it in to Acer who replaced it.  Warranty period is now over, but I have the problem again. I do use the laptop quite a bit, probably 10 hours per day, and in two different locations (home and office), so it gets plugged in and unplugged probably four times a day, every day.  But this in itself should not be a reason that it has this problem... Any suggestions on what to do here?

I have just bought a Dell 19.5 V 90 W power supply adapter for a Dell from ebay. The PSU turned up this morning without a power cord. That's annoying enough but when I looked the connector needed is a type I have never seen before. The centre pin is slightly longer and wider than the other two so I assume that is the Earth pin. The centre pin is also offset between the other two. Again I suppose for connecting only 1 way. The two outer pins have a distance of just under 2 cms between them. Please can anyone tell me what type of connector this is. If I can get some info on it then I may be able to get one.

Thank you Terence

I've recently inherited a lovely Y70-70 touch from my father, and have restored it to factory settings recently. However I'm having issues at the moment where it shuts down instantly at random times when not plugged in. Checking the system logs in the event viewer I see the following Critical message: The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly. Generally online help seems to suggest this is a power supply issue. Have I got a duff battery in here? Are there further diagnostics I can run? Unfortunately I'm out of warranty so keen to solve this myself!

I don't know what's wrong with my laptop It's an MSI CX62 2QD if it helps. The laptop power button keeps turning blue then fading and the screen stays black no matter how many times i hit the power button. Before this happened, I was using the laptop and it was fine except for the laptop suddenly black screening twice.
And the night before, i don't know if this i related but i got a notification saying that the laptop memory is running low and that I should remove or close some programs.

Now i dont even know what's wrong with my laptop. Please, does anyone know? I have my finals coming up and Programming is next and I'd definitely need to use my laptop.

Hey, got quite a problem with my laptop.. It's a Medion Erazer X7813, worked well for ~2 years.
I was doing a graphics card benchmark yesterday and it stopped in the middle of it(monitored temperature, it was at ~80 degrees Celsius when it turned off). No bluescreen or anything just off and I couldnt restart after that(no fans nothing). I thought it might be the power supply, so I tested it, but it was doing 19v when not plugged in, but when I plugged it in and unplugged it again it was at 1v. When testing I unintentionally shorted the power supply and it showed 1v after that just as it did after plugging it in, is it shorting inside the laptop? Could it be the battery or something more serious like the MB? Any ideas are welcome!

I have 2 failed Z800 power supplies (1150 watt version). After some internet research I am led to believe this is a common problem and related to the PS capacitors. Since I do not know how to do this capacitor replacement (yet). I thought I would buy a new PS. However, I do not want to buy a Z800 PS since it seems to me to be a defective design. Can anyone chime in and tell me if the new z840 1125 watt PS will work with my older z800? I have called HP support and spoken with the correct support people on this and they were not able to confirm if the Z840 PS will work (fit) on the z800. The closest confirmantion I recieved was that if it fits then it should work. Instructions to fix the capacitors:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z800-power-on-issue... Same issue I am facing:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f563JGeoxaw On a side note, can anyone recommend a good service tech to make such capacitor repares in Southern California or insrtuctions on how to make this repair (with pictures). Thanks

Hi all,

I have a Dell Inspiron 9300 (all standard hardware) and recently I've been having problems with the PSU staying connected and charging the battery. I has begun to make a high-pitched whine while it is on whenever I plug in a PSU (I've tried three different types: one dell, and two generic). For this reason, I doubt it is the PSU.

I opened it up to clean it out and see if there was anything visibly wrong and saw that there is a little browning around where it connects to the motherboard as well as a few small spots nearby other soldering points. I haven't payed attention to the coloring of the components before, but I'm worried that it's begun to damage things. I plugged in the PSU while it was open to test if any sounds were being made while it was off and I heard a clicking sound every 5 or so seconds.

Has anyone experienced this or have any suggestions? Replacing the motherboard, aka Dell's solution to all hardware problems, is probably not an option since they seem to run higher than what a new computer would cost.

I have decided that a new power supply is in order since I will be updating my video card soon. (I've already added ram so now have 1024MB) I have a Dell Dimension 4400 and the power supply that it came with is 250w but more importantly, has no on/off switch on the back. Most of the PS I see DO have that switch, but SPARKLE's FSP550-60PLG EPS12V 550W Power Supply 90~265V AC, Full Range Input UL 1950, CSA C22.2 Level 3, TUV EN60950, NEMKO EN60950 (CB Report),CE - OEM doesn't and it looks like a good fit for my case.

But I know that looks can be deceiving, and I know so little about computers that I'm prone to be dangerous!

I bought the Dell in 2002, so I think I'm good as far as not having to use an ATX adaptor (read about that during my search).

Will this fit in all other ways? How can I tell that? And is this something a complete novice can do? Looks like an awful lot of wires....

This is where I plan to buy it if it fits (unless you have another place to suggest) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817103478

A:Dell power supply

the laptop doesnt recognize the battery or chargerClick to expand...

Let's discuss those two separately

Charger
I assume you mean AC adapter and I assume you mean you turn on the laptop and it behaves as tho the adapter isn't connected (i.e. that round plug IS, in fact, inserted in laptop and you see the green LED on the adapter itself so you know it should be getting power

You might want to connect the adapter in another computer to be 100% certain but
Is most likely the problem is the connection between the adapter plug and Dell's motherboard is broken (inside your computer). This occurs often. This is something actually soldered onto the mother boards (at least for the Dell laptops i;ve seen) so it's not as simple as replacing a part. Generally, i've seen shops charge flat rate about $150 to do the soldering and fix problem for you

Battery

May have gone dead as you didn't realize AC power was gone and the laptop was draining the battery
Actually is really dead and needs be replaced
Try using it in someone else's computer to see if it can be recharged

OCZ power supplies are good quality, and cheap.
But there is a slight possibility that you will need a special-made power supply for your Dell. Though, I googled a bit, and saw a power supply that was said to be "made" for your Dell, it was actually physically the size of a normal ATX power supply, and had all the same connections (at least if it doesn't have a custom 24-pin mobo connector) as a normal ATX PSU.

I dont mean give Dell a bad reputation but I've had a really difficult time with them.
I purchased an Inspiron 531 and a 8400gs video at the same time form the same sales rep. Little did I know that the 8400gs was not going to work with my 531's power supply. I'm assuming the sales rep made a mistake because he said that the card would work on the system. I emailed dell tech support about the issue and they said that the card would probably or probably not work on my system........whatever the heck that means. I dont want to take any chances. Plus, if im pushing the power supply wouldn't that damage my system? But, anyway,

The linked power supply is a standard "ATX" power supply.  The best option is a "modular" power supply and with that only the cables/connectors needed are hooked up to the power supply.  Avoids all the extra non-used cables, trying to stuff them inside the case and potentially causing some air flow problems.

Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone on this board could be of help to me in locating a power supply for my Dell WebPC. Seems Dell is unable to help me get a replacement for it or even suggest other options so I may find it on my own. Since they make their own parts it seems pretty sorry to me that they can't manage a simple PS for one of their own units. They actually suggested I go to EBay to locate one. Too bad Dell, EBay didn't sell me the computer, you did...you are the only ones who support your puters for parts.
Anyway if someone is parting one out or knows of a source for a power supply please let me know. Thanks for any help given.

Welcome to TechSpot

That is a bit of an "oldie" which died out in 2000 sometime. Check the dimensions of the powersupply.
If it is a small size, check this out:

Dell very often use standard powersupplies, but use a different wiring in the connectors. If you are a bit of a DIY, you should be able to re-wire the connector of a standard PSU into Dell's screwed-up wiring, by pulling the individual wires out and reinserting them as per Dell's old PSU-connector.
Good luck

I'm assuming that you own the particular PC that you are talking about. If so, open it up and have a look!!

A few days ago my Dell Dimension 4400 would not always boot when I push the power button. If it boots, it's perfect after that. I changed the power cord and the outlet I use for power - no help. When it won't boot, the little light on the power button (on the front of the PC) is on, but no sounds come from inside the case, no fan, no flickers to the monitor. Nothing. If I then hold in the switch for a few seconds the light goes off. Last night I pushed the power on button and the light came on but nothing else happened. I walked away and came back several minutes later - still nothing. So I pushed the button again expecting the light to go off - but instead the PC booted up and is running normally. Bad power supply? Thanks in advance for help.

If under warranty, have the MF fix it for you, otherwise attempting to fix it yourself or with a third party company would void it's warrenty. If it's not under warrenty, I would suggest you crack it open and see what you can find (That is, if you know what you are doing), or you could take the easier route and find a repair service onlne or in your local area.
