Laptop Not Recharging Batteries

  aja007 22:05 02 Jan 2006

I have a Fujutsi Siemens Lifebook C1110 laptop.

It doesn't recharge it's (removable) battery (NB I have two and they're not the problem as they recharge ok on a mate's laptop-same model).

Any suggestions???

Hi aja007,

Its more then likly that the laptop is faulty, especially if the batteries are fine one another machine.

Iv seen the Fujutsi Siemens Lifebook series with a number of power/motherbord problems before, actuly where i used to work we rolled out a few to the employess and about 70% of them complained within a week of hardware faults.

Your best bet would be to claim the fault on your warrenty, Fujutsi were pretty good with taking back and repairing the machines.

I Know its a big pain but if its still under warrenty you should'nt need to pay a penny to get it resolved by Fujutsi.

Unfortunately it's out of warrenty!

I guess you have checked that the mains power supply is giving out required 18 - 20 volts? (presumably it works OK off mains power?)

Hi rmcqua,

Yes it works fine off mains.

Clean the terminals where the bttery connects as these can oxidise and cause bad connection resulting in not charging.
