Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

Power supply issues or notebook problem?

\015 This problem is a bit crazy because it involves 2 laptops and 2 adapters. I have a dell latitude 600 notebook (got it used) and a dell inspiron 6000(got it new). I have power cords for both. (They look identical and have the same input and output numbers) I have used them interchangebly. I keep one cord at work and one at home to use as I travel to and from with my laptops. While at home, the cord stopped working on my latitude. (Green light goes out as soon as it is plugged into the back of my laptop) I plug it in the wall then into the laptop. I have also tried plugging into the laptop first and then the wall- no green light at all then. I tried it with the inspiron and the same thing was happening. So I figured it was the cord. \015\012I brought the other cord home from work and plugged it into the wall and then into the latitude. Green light on until it is plugged into the latitude and then it goes out. But this time the cord works with my inspiron. I then took the other cord (the one that I thought was the problem) and tried it with my inspiron again....and it worked! I am completely confused and have decided that the problem probably lies with the latitude 600 and not the cords. \015\012Have you ever heard of this before? Does the battery have some kind of memory that could have been damamged? If so is there any way to reset it?\015\012I will entertain all and any ideas on how to solve it. thanks\015

Answers :

It's a pretty common problem (Power pin failure). The pins/sockets are poorly designed and poorly constructed. The day-in and day-out jerking and pulling on the cable causes the failure.

This video talks about using a cable retention device to stop the problem. I have tried the product and it works really well.

It sound like the power connetor to the motherboard inside your Dell latitude 600 is damaged. Either the solder joints conecting it to the PCB are damaged or the conecter it self is malfunctioning.
\015\012I would contact Dell directly and describe the problem you are having to them. Your laptop might need to be fixed by a technician. Here is the web site to chat with them online http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/gen/chat?c=us&l=en&s=gen
