i did not charge my new mini laptop before use and the power died.... now the charge light wont come on and i can use the laptop without the battery installed... when i plug the battery in it shuts down and the charge light comes on for 5 seconds then turns off again... any suggestions?
i understand these but the charge light is not even coming on..... and when i turn it on with the battery installed it works but as soon as i connect the power source it turns off and stops and doesnt charge... i believe the onli thing i can do is return it i suppose.... i was just hoping for a fix online as it has been posted and will take anuva 2 weeks to return it and recieve a new one.. lol
You have over discharged the battery. The charger is detecting it as no chargeable because the voltage is too low. It may be chargeable if you repeatedly connect and disconnect the ac power. It will charge only in the first few seconds until it gets enough charge. You must repeat this for several cycles.
It worked on my power tool battery. I would try at least a dozen times. You must remove the charger and the ac power to all the charger to reset. On some other chargers it may attempt a maintenance charge cycle every several hours, so you would have to leave it connected overnight. Then disconnect and try again.
