You have a ground fault issue in the DC JACK.

There are escentially 4 circuits in the jack and one is not making contact.

1: Negative Charge circuit (outter ring)
2: Negative Run circuit (outter ring)
3 Positive (Inner Ring)
4: Signal (center pin)

I believe the negative charge circuit (outter ring) is not making contact internally. Typically what happens on that model DC Jack is the tension contact metal becomes fatigued, and does not touch the outter ring.

This could come from Heat causing early fatigue of the metal.
Or normal wear, the metal has simply worn out from regular insert/removal.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: BATTERY LIGHT FLASHES ORANGE

hi,
if you have tried both batteries with the same laptop and they are giving you the same error code, then it could very well be a motherboard problem, both the batteries cannot be bad, what you can do is try these batteries on some other compatible laptop model to check if they work fine there. Also try swapping the AC adapter as in both case you might be using the same Ac adapter, try using some other good known AC adapter as well.

Further queries are welcome
If you find my solution helpfull please do rate me

The 4 orange flashes mean the battery is defective.

Battery light flashes green 5 times, then changes to orange.


The flashing green indicator is telling you (and the notebook) that the battery is almost fully charged, but then by switching immediately to flashing orange, the status has changed to "battery charge is low". This is not normal behaviour and probably indicates a serious issue with the battery. My guess is that the charging is initiating some kind of rapid battery self-discharge.

Notebooks will power up and work without a battery just fine.

Try to operate yours this way. This will eliminate the battery from the loop as a potential cause of the BSODs you are seeing.

Flashing led's on battery pack


Charles,
The battery turns on steadily or blinks to indicate battery charge status.
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the light operates as follows:
  • Solid blue - The battery is charging.
  • Flashing blue - The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
  • Off - The battery is adequately charged, or the computer is turned off.
  • Flashing orange - The battery charge is low.
  • Solid orange - The battery charge is critically low
Thank You,

Battery not charging


Sounds like it could be two things with that, first look at the battery symbol, is it flashing orange or is it green. If its flashing orange means you have a bad battery, if its solid green all ok, if its switching between green and yellow its charging. if the symbol isn't lit at all it doesn't detect your battery and try to remove and reinsert battery. Next look at the plug light, is it green?

Battery light flashing orange


Your battery may have Battery charge status indicator, when you press the button next to the 4 led indicators the LEDs indicate the charge status.
Also the System Battery/Charge LED indicates the battery's current operational condition.
Flashing orange indicates Battery failure.

No power battery flashes 4 orange


If it is orange or is blinking orange, the battery charge is low or expended. Remove the battery and re-install it. Plug in the AC adapter and connect it to an outlet. Turn on the computer.

When the battery status light blinks green and orange, the battery temperature is too hot for charging. Shut down the laptop, detach the AC adapter, and allow the laptop and battery to return to room temperature before attempting to charge the battery.

If the battery status light blinks orange rapidly, the battery itself may be defective.

It wont charge it blinks three times then stops


Hi,Okay, well, I don't want to be a shill for Apple (I mean, heck, I had to buy my Shuffle, so it's not like they're sponsoring this in any way! :-) so let's talk about the color sequences and what they mean.

First off, there are a number of different functions that are denoted by different color sequences, so flashing green might mean one thing when you're listening to music, and something else entirely when it's plugged in and charging or syncing with your PC.

The primary functions are powering on, charging, syncing, and general feedback. Let's look at each.

When you turn on your ipod shuffle, the light will indicate your current charge level:

green = 30-100% charge, you're good to cruise
orange = 10-30% charge, low, but still good for a short workout
red = less than 10% charge, time to plug it in
no light = too late, you've run out of juice

If you see an alternating pattern of green-orange-orange then your Shuffle's crashed or otherwise needs to be restored. Needless to say, that's not a good thing, but probably easy to fix when you hook it up to your PC or Mac.

When you're charging up your shuffle, there are three possible light states:

orange = charging
green = fully charged, unplug whenever you're ready to go
flashing orange = busy, either syncing or in use as a remote disk

When you're playing some music, you can see visual feedback on what's happening and what state you're in:

Press play and

solid green = you're playing music
flashing green = you're in pause mode

Press and hold play and

green-orange-orange-orange = you've disabled your buttons
orange-green-green-green = you've reenabled your buttons

That's bound to be one where people panic and fear that they've broken their shuffles, I bet. If your buttons aren't working at all on your Apple iPod Shuffle 2nd Gen, then press and hold your Play button to see what light sequence you're given. This is also shown by the Shuffle flashing orange when you push a button too.

If your player flashes alternating green and orange, you have no music in the shuffle. This can be because it's fresh out of the box, or because, well, something's happened and the music has vanished. Either way, time to sync with your iTunes library.

If you're seeing a flashing red sequence, you're just about out of battery and just need to plug it in so it can charge up.

Finally, Apple has some good tech notes on the new Shuffle too that you might want to check out if you're still a bit baffled by this tiny engineering wonder: Understanding status light behavior, Shuffle Second Gen, Frequently Asked Questions and iPod Shuffle Support Overview.

Battery indicator flashing red when running on battery or on main supply and battery is 75% charged


When your battery indicator is flashing Red, it usually means that the charger is defective.

Dell also had a recall on some of its batteries. To see if you qualify for a free replacement click here: http://www.dellbatteryprogram.com/

If you want to reset your battery utility follow these steps:

1. Let the battery run completely dead. (Make sure all your work is saved)

2. Fully charge battery (You may still have flashing lights but if you turn your computer on and enter BIOS you can see the charge level)

3. Once again run battery dead.

4. Remove battery and wait 5-10 minutes.

5. Replace battery and use in normal operation.

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer. Thanks!

Continuous alternating one green and three flashing red battery


note.gif NOTE: Battery operating time (the time the battery can hold a charge) decreases over time. Depending on how often the battery is used and the conditions under which it is used, you may need to purchase a new battery during the life of your computer. Check the battery status light — If the battery status light flashes orange or is a steady orange the battery charge is low or depleted. Connect the computer to an electrical outlet.
If the battery status light flashes green and orange, the battery is too hot to charge. Shut down the computer, disconnect the computer from the electrical outlet, and then let the battery and computer cool to room temperature.
If the battery status light rapidly flashes orange, the battery may be defective. Contact Dell _I found this on : http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd820/en/ug/index.htm Hope this helps and good luck. if i "fixed ya" please rate me. thanks-jmattes

Orange battery light on, but computer says its running on electrc


Hi, the orange light is meant to show a charging status, so if you have orange light and its running on electric it just means its plugged in and charging.
