Inspiron 1420 dell says plugged in not charging

\015 Inspiron 1420 dell says plugged in but not charging, few weeks ago was able to fix it just by playing around with the cord, now even that wont help..\015

Answers :

Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
\015\012If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.
When you plug in the power adapter to the laptop can you power up your latop or you are just not able to charge your battery?Make sure that their is a light on the acutual power adapter indicating that the cord is getting power. if no light on adapter . replace power adapter.

I have Dell Inspiron 1521 that is 2 years old (although it has only been used about 8 months total). I got an error about it not recognizing my ac adapter (the original ac adapter from Dell that it came with) & the battery wouldn't charge. Now the battery is dead. The light on the ac adapter is green even when plugged into the laptop. When ac is plugged in to the laptop the battery icon flashes blue. When I power the laptop up, the battery icon flashes red and I get the low battery warning.
