Laptop works fine, but the power light does not?

  Wolverine93 01:30 27 May 2016

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. It's over 5 years old. Recently the power/indicator light at the front of the laptop hasn't come on, but everything else works fine still (charges fine etc.). Usually it would be on while the laptop is on, indicate when the laptop is charging, turn red during low battery, and pulse slowly while the laptop is in standby and charging. Is there a way I can fix this? Is there a part I can buy and replace to make this light work again? Thanks for your help.

First try

remove power lead and battery - press and hold power button for 30 seconds

reconnect power lead and see if the LED comes on.
