Pavillion 15 not charging, but charging LED blinks randomly

Q: Pavillion 15 not charging, but charging LED blinks randomly

For some reason my laptop once stopped charging, I tried a few different outlets at a library and non of them made the laptop start charging again (charging = organge light glowing). I got home, and my outlets there didn't work either. THen after a while I tried an outlet again, and it worked. Then this problem occured one more time (then I fixed it somehow). And the last time it occured I haven't been able to fix it. Trust me I've tried almost everything, I tried turnign it off taking the battery out and holding the powere button then trying to charge it, I tried waiting for hours, but have not tried a new charger. So here is the problem I see: I plug in the charger, and the charging LED does not glow, instead it randomly (it seems random) blinks. I once left my laptop to do that for hours, and it still didn't even charge. Also I can't turn on my laptop without the battery (not sure if thats even possible, as I have not heard it is possible). I'm going to send it back to Costco soon, but before I do, please help me figure out how to fix it, thanks

I replaced the battery with a new Duracell battery yesterday.  I need to charge at least 4 hours first then discharge it.  When charging the light is usually amber, but after about 1 hour into the charge it begins blinking and the color changes to white.  This is the second battery.  It did almost the same thing with the other one, but the charging indicator also read incorrectly.  What can I do to correct this? Thanks

Sorry if im in the totally wrong area, first time post.

My laptop:
Dell m1730
Vista
4gig Ram

So my Dell M1730 one day decides to stop charging and then slowly looses its power until it goes dead, I have had this issue once before, so as I did before I let the laptop sit there for a couple of hours then plugged the power back in and it worked again. But now whilst im on it, it is always detecting the charger then not recognizing it and so on, until eventually it just stops detecting it and goes flat, and I have to wait a couple of hours before I can try again. I have checked the part that goes into the laptop, as in opened it and checked it, there was no obvious damage. So I have no idea whats wrong, Could it be the mother board? Why is it working if I leave it for a while?

Thank you in advance.

About 8 weeks ago- My laptop quit working- My brother got it going again but it seems to be missing drivers- Is there a driver for the charging circuit? My battery went from 100% to now 26% in 8 weeks- Plugged in not charging- I did the battery test and it said the test failed-- I know it isn't the battery- How do i turn on the charging circuit or get a driver for the circuit. The laptop works fine when plugged in.

A:HP G7 Pavillion battery not charging { DRIVERS??}

How do you know it is not the battery, sounds logical. There are no drivers fo the charging circuit. How would drivers work when the laptop is turned off and if it is working it charges when the laptop is turned off and plugged in. Have you run the battery test or did your brother tell you how many cycles the battery has on it? How old is the battery?

Hi. My laptop was a mess about 6 weeks ago- { HP Pavillion G7 } My brother got it up and running again but the battery isn't charging- After 6 weeks it is now down to 21%  I did the battery test and the test failed- I know the battery is good especially since it took 6 weeks to get low. I tried uninstalling the drivers { i'm not sure they actually uninstalled } a few times it said my driver was up to date- a few times it didn't say anything so maybe they did uninstall. I upgraded from 8 to 10. What else can i try to do. The battery test and uninstalling the drivers didn't work.. Thanks in advance. [email protected]

Hi, I have an HP Pavillion dv6253cl (dv6000 series) with Vista Home, and I'm having problems getting the battery to charge. First off, I should probably say that there was a power outage due to rain and lightning last night when the laptop was in hibernate, and the problem first started this morning when I booted it back up (probably not a coincidence). My HP warranty is expired, so I can't turn to them.

I'm currently running off AC power, and if I were to unplug the cord even for a second, the computer would lose power and shut down (I tried once). The battery is plugged in, but there is literally no power, absolutely 0%.

The blue light around the AC adapter works fine, and when the battery is plugged in, the charging light on the front is lit up as if it is charging. When I take out the battery, the charging light goes out, then turns on when I plug the battery back in. Also, when I plug the battery back in, the battery sign in the taskbar indicates that it is charging, but it stops after maybe 10 seconds.

It will also periodically say in the taskbar that it is 100% charged, but it will go back to 0% after a few seconds. I'm not sure why.

Things I've tried:
1. Shut down computer, remove AC and battery for several minutes, plug both back in, boot up computer. Didn't work.
2. Downloaded HP's "Battery Check" software. It says that it is 0% charged, and under "Health", it says "Replace". Not good.

Have you run the battery diagnostic test either in UEFI diagnostics (F2 as you power up) or the HP Support Assistant? Check battery health status and tell us how many cycles are registered on the battery. If you are saying the battery is only a little over a year old, that is too young to die.

A few days ago, I upgraded my HP Pavillion from Windows 8 to Windows 10. After the download, my laptop was entirely dead so I charged it. My laptop worked completely fine before the download. The next day, I noticed my laptop wont charge. The status of the battery says ?plugged in, not charging?. I shut down my computer and restarted it with the same result. I then searched the HP forums and uninstalled the driver and again, restarted my computer. This didn?t work either. I tried different wall sockets and even attempted to take out the battery but the back cover of my laptop wont come off. I called HP Support and the gentleman on the line was extremely rude to me. I couldn?t understand his thick accent and I had a hard time understanding my case number, as I am dyslexic, and he seemed to get irritated when I asked him to speak slower. He spoke very slowly and told me that I was stupid. Frustrated, I hung up. My problem is still not solved and I am confined to the wall and I cant unplug my laptop without it shutting down on me. Please Help!

However it will not boot off battery alone and the battery indicator LED does not show a charge. It briefly shows orange but then moves to blinking white. I have tried the charger on another HP Pavillion and this works perfectly so the power source does not seem to be the issue. There is no apparent damage to the battery terminals, it just appears to not take a charge. As the machine and bettery are new I would assume there is warranty cover for the battery. Any help is much appreciated.

Hi, this laptop is 2 years old and about a week ago it just failed to switch on. No warning, just one day nothing. When it's connected to the power supply and turned on there's nothing, no faint hum, no fan activation and no charging lights. I've tried changing the AC adapter but the new one has given me the same issue.  I'd like to know if this model is capable of operating without the battery and just connected to the AC supply as if not then I may need to consider replacing the battery but if it can operate then I won't waste the time or money. Sadly this PC is just just a few months out of warranty so I am finding it difficult to get in contact with HP regarding a proper repair. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might have gone wrong with this computer? Thanks,  AN

Yesterday i bought a new battery for my laptop but it is giving me the same problem which i had with my previous battery.

So this is not battery problem.



Things i have tried



1)Removing battery and uninstalling windows ac adaptor from Device manager.

2)Removing both battery and power Adaptor and pushing the power button for 20 sec if there is any residuel current.



Nothing has worked for me so far.

Hi...

At first I thought I had tons of spyware or even a virus, and even posted a Hijackthis file here. Nothing was found.
I figured out that my cpu runs at 100% when using the power outlet, or when my computer is chargnig. When I unplug the powercord and use the battery life, everything runs GREAT!!!!! my cpu drops to a normal 4-8% usage with multiple applications running. WEIRD huh? Can anyone relate to this ?? Is this and indication that my battery is going bad???? Can someone help me with this or suggest what is going on? I am running windows XP home edition, and have a compac presario 1500 series.

Hi ! Over the past two weeks I've spent my time troubleshooting why my recently (used) bought X240 is not charging the internal battery. Short timeline: 1. Bought used X240 in good condition but with dead internal and external battery - working well when using power supply.2. Came home and tested that thing -> both batteries show "0% - not charging" (with Win10Pro installed) *suprise, surprise*3. Ordered both new internal and external battery.4. External battery came 1.5 weeks ago. Installed it and worked like a charm (Battery 2 (external): X%, charging).5. Internal battery came the day before yesterday. Installed it and did not work -> "Battery 1: 53% - plugged in, charging - Battery 2: 6% - plugged in, not charging)6. Waited the recommended 6-12 hours like it was written in the "manual" to get it fully charged.7. Next morning -> Batterystatus unchanged (see point 5) ... It's stuck at 53%. Though the status says it's charging, it doesn't.8. Simply tried out what's going to happen when I pull the cable of the power supply -> Notebook instant off *hmmm*9. As the external battery was obviously blocked from charging by the internal (as it was not charged), I've taken out the internal battery again and et voila, external battery is charging again.I've tried to remove both batteries and perform the "Magic Trick" (press the main power switch for 30 secs) and I've also pushed the "reset" switch on the backside near the battery. Sadly without any result ;-(... Read more

A:Battery says: Charging, but it is not actually charging while plugged in and is stuck in 2% for 5 days !

First thing to check is wherther the sysetm recognizes the AC adapter - F2 at powerup to check that.
If it doesn't, try a new Dell OEM AC adapter - if that doesn't fix the issue, replace the DC jack board, and if that doesn't solve it, the mainboard.  Note:  you MUST use a Dell adapter - NOT a third party unit.
If the system DOES recognize the AC adapter, but won't charge the battery, chances are the battery is bad and will need to be replaced.
You cannot solve the issue without checking and, if necessary, replacing these parts.

A:XPS 12 9Q23 Power Charging Disabled / Plugged in, NOT CHARGING

Hi DAEMONROD.
Where have you purchased the battery from? Does the old battery charge fine when plugged in?
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible? 
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Test another power adapter and check. If the adapter fits in loose, then the dc port needs to be replaced. You would need this part.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Hi,

Since then I bought a new battery. Just fitted it, but now the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, not charging". Furthermore, when I Fn+F3 to show the battery meter, it says "battery charging diabled". There is no option here to turn battery charging on. Nor is there an option to enable battery charging in BIOS. 
BIOS does show battery performing normally, so does the battery meter (Fn+F3). BIOS also shows AC adapter as 45W, which is the original adapter.

I've had my HP Envy laptop for about 3 months, and yesterday I noticed that when it was plugged in it wasn't charging (the battery icon says "plugged in, not charging"). I turned it off overnight, plugged in, and this morning the battery was fully charged. It only seems to not charge when it is turned on. I have tried removing the battery, turning on, deleting the ACPI-compliant control method battery, turning off, and turning back on again (as advised in other forum responses), but with no joy. At first I thought it could either be a battery issue, but the fact it fully charged overnight whilst off would lead me to believe it's not, and is probably a software / settings issue. Any ideas please, I've run out of google search ideas!!

Hello, I have a ProBook 640 G1 that will not power on. After pressing the power button, with a battery installed and the AC adapter attached, the Charging LED blinks white 9 times . Unplugging the AC adapter results in 9 amber blinks. The light on the AC Adapter itself remains solid green. With the battery removed, and attached to the AC Adapter, three lights blink continously : The light on the power button (white), the Charging LED (AMBER), and the Power LED (White). The light on the AC Adapter itself remain solid green. In both cases pressing or pressing and holding the power button has no effect. There is no indication that power is actually making in to the MB; no BIOS , nothing at all. I do not have access to another unit with the same battery or AC adapter in order to try swapping those out. Thanks,Shane

I own a HP ProBook 4520s. Lately, it has been freezing randomly. But the strange thing is, it freezes only when it is not getting charged. When it freezes, the screen doesn't respond, the mouse, keyboard doesn't work and the wireless light turns off. I have to hold down the power button and hard reset it to make it work again. It works perfectly when it is getting charged.The battery is not the problem since I have replaced it few weeks ago but the problem still persist as it did before replacing the the battery. It doesn't overheat. The vents do not get blocked. I have an antivirus installed, so no chances of any virus or malware.What can be the possible causes of this freezing? What steps should I take for fixing it? Details :OS - Windows 7 (32-bit)Processor - Intel Core i3 CPU M 370 @2.40Ghz 2,40GhzRAM - 6GB (2.92GB usable)

The HP community is not helpful at all! I am leaving it. I have lost on trust in HP. I will never buy any HP product and I will not suggest others to buy HP products.

Some day I was using my laptop and then left it on for a while because I have to do something else (I left it for about two hours). When I came back the laptop was dead (at least I thought that because it was not charging the battery nor starting up with the charger plugged in). A couple of days after that I tested the laptop again, plugged in the charger and it was charging again the battery. I could start the system fine. After a reboot the system was not charging again, but the battery had some charge so I could start the laptop again. In summary, there's not problem with the battery (there is power going from the battery to the motherboard), there is no power going from the charger to the battery (sometimes it does, sometimes don't, but the most times don't). With the battery unplugged and the charger plugged in there is no power going to the motherboard. battery and no charger -> ok, power to the motherboardbattery + charger -> sometimes works, but almost neverno battery, only charger -> does not work Power jack tested and it's ok. Charger tested and it's ok. Also trackpad stopped working, windows does not recognize it. Thanks for your help and sorry for the long post.

I have Toshiba satellite model C875?7304. The battery indicator on the desktop says that it's charging but the percentage is depleting. This is on a brand-new battery that came with 67% full and a new adapter. When the laptop is off the LED indicator in the front is lit like the battery is charging. However it is not. After leaving it plugged in for a few hours the percentage was the same as when I turned it off. Also the adapter wasn't warm at all. I've tried all Toshibas recommendations removing all power from the laptop and holding the power button down for 30 seconds to a minute. Also removing the battery for the bios and reinserting it. Still that hasn't worked. I removed the laptop battery and the laptop will not power on using AC power only. It's almost like the laptop is only using battery power and the adapter is not charging the battery or keeping the laptop on. Laptops only about a year old. Any suggestions anyone?
 

A:Toshiba satellite charging but not charging

As the laptop's only a year old the original battery should be fine and not need replacing. Also if it won't run from the AC power only something is wrong. Look for your receipt and if it's still under guarantee take the laptop back.
